What Am I Supposed To Say Jesus

Avengers: Infinity War (2018)

  • Peter Quill: “How in the world is this person still alive?” he wonders. Drax:He is not a guy in any sense of the word. You’re a real gentleman. This. This is a dude, by the way. A man with a good-looking and strong physique. Peter Quill: I have a lot of muscle. Rocket Raccoon: Are you fooling me, Quill? Who are you kidding? You’re only one sandwich away from being overweight. Peter Quill: That’s right, that’s correct. Drax:That is correct. You’ve gained a few pounds. Peter Quill: What are you talking about? Peter Quill:Gamora, what makes you think I’m a jerk? Mantis: He is nervous and furious, and he is suffering from a great sense of loss and guilt. Drax:like It’s if a pirate and an angel had a child together. Peter Quill exclaims, “Wow.” This has served as a genuine wake-up call for me. Okay, I’m going to get a Bowflex. I’m going to make a commitment. I’m going to go out and grab some dumbbells. Rocket Raccoon: You are aware that you are unable to consume dumbbells, aren’t you? Gamora: It’s as though his muscles are formed of Chitauri metal strands, which makes sense. Stop rubbing his muscles, Peter Quill says. Dr. Stephen Strange (Dr. Stephen Strange): Okay, let me ask you a question: Who is the master you are working for? Peter Quill: Oh, what kind of master do I work for? What am I meant to say, Jesus
  • What do I say? Thor: There are a total of six stones in the world. Thanos already possesses the Power Stone, since he snatched it from Xandar last week during his devastation of the planet. When he wrecked my spacecraft and massacred half of my people, he seized the Space Stone and took it to himself. Because the Avengers have taken care of the Time and Mind Stones, they are no longer in danger on Earth. The Avengers, according to Peter Quill? Thor is one of the most powerful heroes on the planet. Mantis:Are you a fan of Kevin Bacon? Thor: It’s possible he’s a member of the team. I’m not sure, because I haven’t been there in a long time
  • Peter Quill: Dude, you’re a jerk. I’m curious how long you’ve been standing there. Drax:It will take an hour. Peter Quill: Do you have one hour? Gamora: Are you sure you’re serious? Drax: I’ve mastered the art of being completely still, to the point that I’m undetectable to the naked sight. Watch. Peter Quill: You’re consuming a Zargnut, aren’t you? Drax: My movements are so sluggish that they are almost unnoticeable. Peter Quill: Mmm, no, I don’t think so. Drax:I’m confident that I’m invisible. Drax says hello to Mantis. Drax:Dammit
  • Peter Quill: Excuse me, but who are you? Peter Parker: We’re the Avengers, dude. We’re the Avengers. Mantis:You’re the ones that Thor told us about, aren’t you? Tony Stark: Do you know who Thor is? Peter Quill:Yeah, he’s a big guy who isn’t particularly attractive, but he needed rescue
  • Groot, please put that item away. Peter Quill Now, I don’t want to tell you anything else. Groot? Groot: My name is Groot! Peter Quill exclaims, “Whoa!” Rocket Raccoon: I speak a foreign language! Mantis:Hey! Drax:Wow. Peter Quill: You’ve got some acorns on your person, youngster. Rocket Raccoon: Ever since you became a parent to a little sap, you’ve been a complete and utter jerk. I’m going to crush that monster to bits if you keep up your good work, Rocket Raccoon! Tony Stark: We have to band together. Because if all we have is a can-do mentality when we emerge, then we have failed. “Dude, don’t call us plucky,” Peter Quill says. We are baffled as to what it signifies. Yes, we have a more hopeful outlook. Your strategy appeals to me. Except that it’s a snoozer. So please allow me to carry out the plan, and it may turn out to be rather successful. Please inform him of the dance-off to rescue the universe. Drax Tony Stark: What do you mean, a dance-off? It’s not a thing, Peter Quill says. Peter Parker:like It’s in the movie Footloose, right? Peter Quill: It’s just like the movie Footloose. Is it still the finest film ever made? Do you think it is? Peter Parker: That was never the case. Flash Gordon should not be encouraged, says Tony Stark. Peter Quill: Flash Gordon, are you there? That is meant as a compliment. Don’t forget that I’m half-human, as well. So that 50 percent of me that is foolish is 100 percent you
  • And vice versa Peter Quill: “You let her go!” he says. Thanos: Ah, there’s the lover again. To put it another way, I’d like to think of myself as more of a titan-slaying, long-term booty call. Mantis: We’ve arrived at our destination. The Guardians, remember that this might be deadly, therefore let’s put on our toughest faces
  • Peter Quill Tony Stark: You’re from the planet Earth, aren’t you? The character Peter Quill says, “I’m not from Earth
  • I’m from Missouri.” Mr. Tony Stark:Yeah, but that’s on Earth, you cretin. Dr. Stephen Strange: I was able to go across time. in order to see different futures See all of the probable outcomes of the upcoming war in real time Peter Quill: Can you tell me how many you saw? 14 million six hundred and five dollars, according to Dr. Stephen Strange Tony Stark: How many victories did we have? The first is Dr. Stephen Strange: one
  • The second is Dr. Stephen Strange: two
  • The third is Dr. Stephen Strange: three
  • And the fourth is Dr. Stephen Strange: four
  • And the fifth is Dr. Stephen Strange: five
  • The sixth is Dr. Stephen Strange: six
  • And the seventh is Dr. Stephen Strange: five
  • ‘What the hell happened to this planet?’ asks Peter Quill. Gravitational force is all over the place when the Earth is eight degrees off its axis. Tony Stark: You’re right. We do have one advantage, in that he is coming to us. We’ll put it to good use. Okay, I’ve devised a strategy. It’s fairly straightforward: we’ll pull him in, pin him down, and take whatever we need from him. We’re not interested in dancing with this guy
  • Instead, we’d want to throw down the gauntlet. Tony Stark:Do you have a yawn going on? While I’m in the thick of this, while I’m dismantling it? Huh? Did you catch what I was saying? Drax: When you stated, “We need a plan,” I had to turn off the radio. The fact is that they don’t actually wing it isn’t really what they do either. To be more specific, what exactly do they perform is unknown to Peter Parker. “Kick names, take asses,” Mantis says. Drax:Yeah, you’re absolutely right. Tony Stark: All right, then. Please, could you come over here? Mr. Lord, could you please get your family to form a circle? “Mr Lord,” Star Lord is in good health, says Peter Quill. Tony Stark: We have to come together as a group. Because if all we have is a can-do mentality, that’s not going to cut it. Peter Quill: “Dude!” he exclaims. Please do not refer to us as courageous. We are baffled as to what it signifies. Okay, we’re optimistic, to be honest. I admire your strategy, but it’s a total dud. So please allow me to carry out the idea, and it may turn out to be extremely fantastic. Drax:Tell him about the dance-off to rescue the universe that you participated in. Tony Stark: Is there a dance off? Peter Quill: No, it isn’t a. It is not a. it is not a. Peter Parker: I’m not going to lie, I’m a little bit envious. How about in the movie Footloose? Peter Quill: It’s just like the movie Footloose. Is it still the finest film ever made? Do you think it is? Peter Parker: That was never the case. Do not promote this, please. Tony Stark: I repeat, do not encourage this. “Flash Gordon” isn’t doing anything to assist us. In case you’re wondering, “Flash Gordon” is a tribute to Peter Quill. Remember, I’m only half human, which means that the 50 percent of me that is foolish is equivalent to a 100 percent of you. Tony Stark: Your math is really mind-blowing. Mantis: Excuse me, but does your acquaintance do this on a regular basis? Tony Stark: Strange, isn’t it? Are you all right? Tony Stark:good It’s to see you again. Peter Parker:Wait a minute, what was that? Dr. Stephen Strange: I was able to go across time. To see other futures, go here. See all of the probable outcomes of the upcoming war in real time Peter Quill: Can you tell me how many you saw? Dr. Stephen Strange: Fourteen million, six hundred and fifty-five dollars and fifty cents. Tony Stark: How many victories did we have? Dr. Stephen Strange: One
  • Dr. Stephen Strange: Two
  • Dr. Stephen Strange: Three
  • Dr. Stephen Strange: Four
  • Gamora: You made a vow. You made a promise! Thanos: “Oh, daughter,” he says. You have unrealistic expectations of him. Thanos: She has been questioned, hasn’t she? Thanos: Go ahead and do it. Thanos: Go ahead and do it! Peter Quill: I told you to go to the right! Peter Quill: Gamora: I adore you more than anything in the world. “I love you, too,” Peter Quill says to Dr. Stephen Strange, who replies, “Oh yeah.” You’re a lot more of a Thanos than I am. Thanos: I’m assuming the Maw is no longer alive. Despite the fact that this day has taken a heavy toll on him, he has completed his mission. Dr. Stephen Strange: You might come to regret it. He brought you face to face with the Master of the Mystic Arts. Thanos:Where do you think he brought you? Dr. Stephen Strange:Let me guess, your home? Thanos:It was, and it was beautiful. Titan was like most planets. When we faced extinction, I offered a solution. Dr. Stephen Strange:Genocide. Thanos:They called me a mad man. Dr. Stephen Strange:Congratulations, you’re a prophet. Thanos:I’m a survivor. Dr. Stephen Strange:Who wants to murder trillions. Thanos:With all six stones I can simply snap my fingers and it’ll all cease to exist. I call that, mercy. Dr. Stephen Strange:Then what? Thanos:I finally rest, and watch the sunrise on a grateful universe. The hardest choices require the strongest will. Dr. Stephen Strange:I think you’ll find our will, equal, to yours. Thanos:Our? Tony Stark:Piece of cake Quill. Peter Quill:Yeah, if your goal was to piss him off
  • Mantis:He is in anguish. he mourns. Drax:What does this MONSTER have to MOURN? Nebula:Gamora. He went to Vormir with her, he came back with the Soul stone, which means. Peter Quill:Asshole
  • Peter Quill:Everybody stay where you are, chill the eff out! Peter Quill:I’m gonna ask you this one time: where is Gamora? Tony Stark:Yeah, I’ll do you one better: WHO’S Gamora? Drax:I’ll do YOU one better: WHY is Gamora? Peter Quill:Tell me where the girl is, or I swear to you, I’m gonna french-fry this little freak! Tony Stark:do Let’s it! You shoot my guy and I’ll blast him! Let’s go! Drax:Do it, Quill! I can take it. Mantis:No, he can’t take it! Dr. Stephen Strange:right, She’s you can’t. Peter Quill:Oh yeah? You don’t wanna tell me where she is? That’s fine, I’ll kill all three of you and I’ll beat it out of Thanos myself! Peter Quill:Starting with you! Dr. Stephen Strange:Wait, what? Thanos? Alright, let me ask you this one time: what master do you serve? Peter Quill:What master do I serve? What am I supposed to say, Jesus? Tony Stark: You’re from the planet Earth, aren’t you? The character Peter Quill says, “I’m not from Earth
  • I’m from Missouri.” Tony Stark: Yeah, that’s on EARTH, dipshit. What’re you hassling us for? Peter Parker:So you’re not with Thanos? Peter Quill:”With Thanos?” No! I’m here to kill Thanos! He took my girl – wait, who are you? Peter Parker: We’re the Avengers, dude. We’re the Avengers. Mantis:You’re the ones Thor told us about! Tony Stark: Do you know who Thor is? Peter Quill:Yeah. Tall guy, not that good-looking, needed saving. Dr. Stephen Strange:Where is he now
  • Peter Quill:I’m gonna blow that nutsack of a chin right off your face

  • Peter Quill:Let her go, Grimace
  • sThor:Rocket Raccoon:Wipers! Wipers! Get it off! Peter Quill:Wake him up. Mantis:Wake. Thor:Who the hell are you guys
  • Peter Quill:I feel your pain as well, because. I mean, it’s not a competition, but I’ve been through a lot. My father killed my mother. And then I had to kill my father. That was hard. Probably even harder than having to kill a sister. Plus, I came out with both my eyes, which was
  • sTony Stark:Yeah, we got one advantage. He’s coming to us. We use it. Alright, I have a plan. At least the beginnings of one. It’s pretty simple. We draw him in, pin him down, get what we need. Definitely don’t want to dance with this guy, we just want the gauntlet. Tony Stark:Do you have a yawn going on? While I’m in the thick of this, while I’m dismantling it? Huh? Did you catch what I was saying? Drax:I stopped listening after you said we need a plan. Tony Stark:Okay, Mr. Clean’s on his own page. The fact is that they don’t actually wing it isn’t really what they do either. To be more specific, what exactly do they perform is unknown to Peter Parker. “Kick names, take asses,” Mantis says. Drax:Yeah, you’re absolutely right. Tony Stark:All right, just get over here, please? Mr. Lord, can you get your folks to circle up? Peter Quill:Mr. Lord. Star-Lord is fine. Tony Stark: We have to come together as a group. Because if all we come at him with is a plucky attitude. “Dude, don’t call us plucky,” Peter Quill says. We are baffled as to what it signifies.

Peter Parker: That was never the case. Tony Stark: Please don’t promote this, all right? Flash Gordon isn’t doing anything to assist us. Peter Quill: Flash Gordon, are you there? By the way, thank you for the complement. Keep in mind that I’m just half-human. So there’s 50 percent of me who’s foolish, and there’s 100 percent of you who are stupid. Tony Stark: Your math is just mind-blowing
  • Peter Quill: You’re not quite as powerful as you used to be, are you? Where has Gamora gone? Thanos: This is Gamora, my Gamora. Peter Quill: “Oh, nonsense!” he exclaims. What happened to her? Mantis: He’s in a lot of pain. Peter Quill: All right. Mantis: He weeps. He weeps. Drax:Can you tell me what this MONSTER is mourning? Nebula:Gamora. Peter Quill: What are you talking about? Nebula: He whisked her away to Vormir. He returned with the Soul Stone in his possession. and she didn’t follow through. Tony Stark:All right, Quill, you’ve got to calm down right now. Do you comprehend what I’m saying? Don’t. Don’t get involved

  • You didn’t. Spider-Man:Let me just say that if aliens end up implanting eggs in my chest or anything, and I end up eating one of you, I really apologize. Iron Man: I don’t want you to make a single reference to pop culture for the remainder of the journey. Do you comprehend what I’m saying? Spider-Man: I’m attempting to convey the idea that something is about to happen. Drax:Thanos! Spider-Man: “Whoa, whoa, whoa!” he exclaims. If you place your trust in me, please don’t. Star-Lord: “Stay down, clown,” he says. Drax: “Die, blanket of death!” he screams. Star-Lord: Everyone, please remain in your current location. Relax and take it easy. Star-Lord:I’m going to ask you a question only once. What happened to Gamora? Iron Man:Yeah, but I’ll outdo you by a mile. Who exactly is Gamora? Drax:I’ll do *you* a better job than that. What is Gamora up to? Star-Lord: Tell me where the girl is, or I promise to you that I’m going to fry this little freak in a pan of boiling oil. Iron Man: All right, let’s do it. You shoot my buddy, and I’ll blow him to smithereens. Let’s get started! Drax: Go ahead, Quill! I’m not bothered by it. Mantis: No, he’s not going to accept it! Doctor Strange:absolutely She’s correct. He is unable to do so. Star-Lord: Oh, that’s right. You’re not going to tell me where she is, are you? That’s perfectly OK. I’m going to kill you all, and I’m going to beat the crap out of Thanos myself. Star-Lord: Let us begin with you. Doctor Strange:Wait, what? You’re talking about Thanos? Okay, let me to ask you a question once more. What kind of master are you serving? Star-Lord: Who is the master that I am serving? What am I supposed to say to Jesus, you might wonder.

  • I’m from Missouri, to be more precise. Iron Man: “Yeah, that’s on Earth, dipshit,” says the Iron Man. What exactly are you bothering us about?

Who are you, exactly? Spider-Man: We’re the Avengers, man. We’re the Avengers. Mantis:You’re the ones that Thor told us about, aren’t you? Iron Man: Do you know who Thor is? Star-Lord:Yeah.

  • Grimace, let her go, says the Star-Lord. Gamora:Peter. Star-Lord: I told you to take the correct turn. Gamora:Now? Really? Star-Lord: “You let her go!” he exclaims. Thanos: Ah, there’s the lover again. Star-Lord: I prefer to think of myself as a Titan-killing, long-term booty caller rather than a warrior. Allow. Her. To. Go. Gamora:Peter. “I’m going to blow that chin right off your face,” says Star-Lord. Gamora:Peter. He’s not the one. Gamora: You made a vow. You made a pledge. Thanos: “Oh, daughter,” he says. You have unrealistic expectations of him. Thanos: She has been questioned, hasn’t she? Go ahead and do it. Thanos: Go ahead and do it! Star-Lord: I told you to take the correct turn. Gamora: I adore you more than everything in the world. Star-Lord: I feel the same way about you. Thanos: I like you a lot. Iron Man: Is he in trouble? Don’t ease up on the pressure. Mantis: You must move quickly. He possesses tremendous strength. Iron Man: Parker, please assist me. Come on over here. She can’t keep him in check for much longer. Let’s get this party started. Spider-Man: We have to open his fingers in order to get it off of him. Star-Lord: I was under the impression you’d be more difficult to capture. By the way, this was always my intention. What do you think? Not so strong anymore, huh? What happened to Gamora? Thanos: “M-My Gamora,” he says. Star-Lord: Oh, that’s a load of bullshit. What happened to her? Mantis: He’s in a lot of pain. Star-Lord:Good. Mantis:He. He is in a state of mourning. Drax:Can you tell me what this creature is mourning? Nebula:Gamora. Star-Lord:What? Nebula: He whisked her away to Vormir. He returned with the Soul Stone in his possession. She, on the other hand, did not. Iron Man:All right, Quill, you’ve got to calm down right now. Do you comprehend what I’m saying? Don’t engage, don’t engage, don’t engage. We were so close to pulling this off! Star-Lord: Tell me she’s telling the truth. Tell me you weren’t the one who did it, you jerk! Thanos: I had no choice. The Star-Lord responds, “No, you didn’t.” No, you didn’t do that. Star-Lord: No, you didn’t do that! Iron Man: “Quill!” says Iron Man. Stop right there! Stop, stop, stop, stop! Spider-Man: “It’s coming, it’s coming, it’s coming!” he exclaims excitedly. I’ve figured it out! I’ve figured it out! Spider-Man exclaims, “Oh, my God!” Peter Quill: Here, have a look at my spacecraft. And I have no intention of doing so. Wait, what type of weapon are we talking about here? W-what kind of weapon are we talking about here? Thor: The Thanos-defeating sort of Thor. “Don’t you believe that we should all have a weapon like that?” Peter Quill inquires. Thor:No. You just do not have the necessary strength to handle them. It seemed as if your bodies were crumbling and your thoughts were collapsing into lunacy. Rocket Raccoon:Does it seem strange that I’m even more excited about doing it now? Thor:Hmmm, a little bit, yes, I suppose
  • Thor:Knowhere. Mantis:I’m sure he’s on his way somewhere. Peter Quill: No, not at all. Knowhere? Yes, it is a place, and yes, we have been there. It’s a pain in the neck
  • Iron Man: We’re not getting any assistance from Flash Gordon in this situation. Flash Gordon, is that you, Star-Lord? By the way, that’s a compliment, not an insult. Please keep in mind that I am only half human. In other words, it’s fifty percent of me who is dumb, and it’s one hundred percent of you who is stupid. Iron Man: Your mathematical prowess has me completely baffled. Mantis: Excuse me, but does your friend do that on a regular basis? Iron Man: Isn’t it strange? Are we all in agreement? You’ve returned. You’re in good shape. Spider-Man: Wait a minute, what was that? “I traveled forward in time to see different futures,” Doctor Strange explains.

I call that mercy. Doctor Strange:And then what? The sun would rise on a thankful cosmos, and I’d finally be able to relax and enjoy the sunrise. The strongest wills are required for the most difficult decisions. Doctor Strange:I believe you’ll find our will to be equal to yours in this matter. Thanos:Our? Quill, you’re a piece of cake in my book. Star-Lord: You may say that if your purpose was to annoy him

‘How in the world is this person still alive?’ Peter Quill wonders. In his own words, he’s not a “dude.” What a gentleman you are. This. That’s right, that’s a guy. The gentleman is well-built and athletic. The character Peter Quill describes himself as “muscular.” “Quill, are you kidding me?” Rocket Raccoon exclaimed. The only thing standing between you and gaining weight is a sandwich. “Yes, that’s right,” Peter Quill says. The statement is correct. Drax:Yes, it is. You’ve gained a few kilos.

Gamora, what makes you think I’m a jerk?

  • In Drax’s words, it’s as though a pirate and an angel had a child together.
  • My senses have been jolted awake by this.
  • “I’m going to be serious about it.” My next purchase will be a set of dumbbells.
  • “Stop massaging his muscles,” Peter Quill commands.
  • Stephen Strange (pronouncing as Dr.
  • And what master do I serve?
  • And what, exactly, do I say to you, Jesus?

Due to the fact that he stole it last week when he decimated Xandar, Thanos already has possession of the Power Stone.

Because the Avengers have taken care of the Time and Mind Stones, they are no longer at risk of being stolen.

Thor is one of the most powerful beings on the face of the Earth.

If Thor is on the team, that is a good sign.

Mr.

I’m curious how long you’ve been there.

Peter Quill: Can you tell me how long it will take?

Drax: I’ve mastered the art of remaining completely still, to the point where I’m virtually indistinguishable from others.

“You’re eating a Zargnut,” Peter Quill remarked.

“Mmm, no,” Peter Quill responds.

“Hello, Drax,” Mantis says.

says Peter Quill.

“You’re the ones Thor told us about,” Mantis explains.

Peter Quill:Yeah, he’s a tall guy who isn’t particularly attractive, but he was in desperate need of help.

Peter Quill: I’m not going to tell you anything else now.

The character Groot says, “I am Groot!” Quill says, “Wait, what?” Rocket Raccoon: I speak a foreign language, you know.

Drax:Wow.

Peter Quill: You’ve got acorns all over your person, kid.

I’m going to smash that thing to pieces if you keep it up, Rocket Raccoon.

If all we have is a can-do attitude, then we’ve done well.

We are baffled as to what it signifies.

The way you’re thinking about it, it makes sense.

Toss the plan into my hands and it could turn out really well.

Drax: “What dance-off?” Tony Stark asks.

In the same way that Footloose the movie was portrayed?

It is still considered to be the greatest film ever made.

Do not give Flash Gordon any encouragement.

Peter Quill: The compliment is intended to be received as such.

In other words, the 50 percent of me that is stupid is equivalent to 100 percent you “You let her go,” Peter Quill says.

Thanos: As Peter Quill puts it, I prefer to think of myself as a titan-slaying, long-term booty call.

The Guardians, remember that this could be dangerous, so let’s put on our mean faces; Are you from the planet Earth?

The character Peter Quill says, “I’m not from Earth, I’m from Missouri.” Tony Stark: “Yeah, that’s on Earth, dipshit,” he replies.

Stephen Strange explains.

“How many did you happen to see?” Peter Quill inquires.

Stephen Strange “How many victories did we have?” Tony Stark asks.

Stephen Strange: one; two; three; Dr.

Stephen Strange: five; Dr.

Stephen Strange: seven; Dr.

Stephen Strange: twenty-four; Dr.

Stephen Strange: twenty-four ‘What in the world happened to this planet?’ says Peter Quill.

“Yeah,” says Tony Stark.

The information will be used.

Simple enough: we’ll draw him in, pin him down, and take whatever we need from him.

“Are you yawning?” asks Tony Stark.

Huh?

Drax: When you said, “We need a plan,” I had to stop listening.

Peter Quill: “What exactly do they do?” Peter Parker wonders aloud.

In that case, Drax:You’re absolutely correct.

Please, Mr Lord, could you arrange for your family to gather?

It won’t do us any good if all we have is a can-do spirit.

Peter Quill: Dude, what are you doing?

We are baffled as to what it signifies.

Although I like your strategy, I think it’s a bad idea.

Informing him of the dance-off to save the universe would be a good idea.

It’s not a, Peter Quill.

“Peter Parker” is a fictional character created by American comic book writer Robert Kirkman.

It’s exactly like the movie Footloose, says Peter Quill.

Peter Parker:It was never the case in the first instance.

Tony Stark: Don’t encourage this at all.

And by the way, “Flash Gordon” is a compliment to Peter Quill.

“Your math is absolutely mind-blowing,” Tony Stark says.

Odd, eh?

Stark: You’re back in this place, aren’t you?

“I went forward in time,” Dr.

if you want to see alternative futures To consider every possible outcome of the upcoming conflict.

“Fourteen million, six hundred and five,” Dr.

“How many victories did we have?” Tony Stark asks.

Stephen Strange is a one-of-a-kind individual who has a unique perspective on the world.

Congratulations on keeping your word!

Thanos: You’re setting yourself up for disappointment with your expectations.

Peter Quill: I told you straight away to do what I told you to do.

Dr.

In comparison to Thanos, you’re a lot more like Loki.

This day has taken a heavy toll on him; however, his mission was successfully completed on that day.

Dr.

Thanos:Where do you suppose he brought you?

Stephen Strange:Let me guess, your home?

Titan was like other worlds.

Dr.

Thanos:They labeled me a deranged guy.

Stephen Strange:Congratulations, you’re a prophet.

Dr.

Thanos: With all six stones in my possession, I can simply snap my fingers and everything will vanish.

Dr.

Thanos: At long last, I can relax and enjoy the sunrise over a grateful universe.

“I believe you will find our will to be equal to yours,” Dr.

Thanos:Our?

Quill.

Mantis: He’s in a lot of pain.

Drax:Can you tell me what this MONSTER has to MOURN?

He accompanied her to Vormir, and he returned with the Soul stone, which translates as Peter Quill: “Asshole,” he says.

Peter Quill: I’m going to ask you this one question: where has Gamora gone missing?

Drax:I’ll go one better than you: WHY is Gamora here?

Tony Stark: All right, let’s do it!

Let’s get started!

I’m not bothered by it.

Dr.

Peter Quill: Oh, you mean that?

That’s fine with me; I’ll kill you all and beat the living daylights out of Thanos myself!

Dr.

Thanos?

What master do you serve?

What am I meant to say to Jesus, you might wonder.

Tony Stark: Are you from the planet Earth?

What exactly are you bothering us about?

“With Thanos?” says Peter Quill.

I’m on a mission to eliminate Thanos!

“We’re the Avengers, man,” Peter Parker declares.

“Do you know who Thor is?” Tony Stark asks.

Tall, unkempt, and not particularly attractive, he needed rescue.

Stephen Strange: Where has he disappeared to?

Remove it from your person!

Mantis:Wake.

Peter Quill: I understand your anguish, because I’ve been there myself.

My father was responsible for my mother’s death.

That was difficult.

In addition, I came out with both of my eyes, which was; Tony Stark:Yeah, we’ve got one advantage over the competition.

We make use of it.

At the very least, the outlines of one.

We encircle him, pin him down, and take what we need from him.

“Are you yawning?” asks Tony Stark.

Huh?

Drax:I had to stop listening after you said that we needed a strategy.

Clean has his own page now.

Peter Quill: “What exactly do they do?” Peter Parker wonders aloud.

In that case, Drax:You’re absolutely correct.

Mr.

Mr.

Star-Lord is in good health.

Because if all we bring to the table is a can-do attitude, we will fail miserably.

We are baffled as to what it signifies.

Although I like your strategy, I think it’s a bad idea.

Please inform him of the dance-off to save the universe.

“It’s not a, it’s not a,” Peter Quill says emphatically.

Which movie are you referring to, by the way?

It is still considered to be the greatest film ever made.

“Don’t encourage this, okay?” says Tony Stark.

What about Flash Gordon?

Thank you!

So there’s 50 percent of me who’s stupid, and there’s 100 percent of you who is stupid.

So you’re not as strong as you used to be, are you?

The name of Gamora is Thanos, and she is my Gamora.

Peter Quill: Oh, bullshit, that’s ridiculous!

In his anguish, Mantis expresses himself as follows: The good news is that Peter Quill is on the case!

This MONSTER has nothing to bemoan, Drax says.

Quill: What do you mean?

With the Soul Stone in his possession, he returned.

Quill, you’ve got to calm down right now, Tony Stark says.

Don’t.

‘Tell me she’s lying,’ says Peter Quill.

You must not have done it!

The answer is no.

Please accept my apologies if aliens end up implanting eggs in my chest or something, and I accidentally eat one of you.

Understand what I mean?

Drax:Thanos!

Please do not put your eggs in my basket!

Blanket of death!

All of you, remain in your current locations.

This is something I’m going to ask you once.

The Iron Man:Yeah, but I’ll do you a better job than that.

Drax:I’ll go one better than *you* on this one.

“Tell me where the girl is,” Star-Lord commands.

Basically, if you shoot my guy, I’ll blast him to smithereens.

Quill, you must do it!

I’m strong.

Strange: She’s absolutely correct.

It is your choice whether or not you will tell me where she is located.

The three of you will perish, and Thanos will be defeated by me personally.

Now that we’ve established that, allow me to ask you one question.

“What master do I serve?” inquires Star-Lord.

“You’re from the planet Earth,” says Iron Man.

What exactly are you bothering us about here?

Spider-Man: The Star-Lord: *With* Thanos, of course.

He snatched my girlfriend from me.

The Avengers are here, man.

“You’re the ones Thor told us about,” Mantis explains.

Star-Lord:Yeah.

Doctor Strange (also known as Dr.

What happened to him?

Gamora:Peter.

Gamora:Now?

“You let her go!” says Star-Lord.

Thanos: In my mind’s eye, I’m more of a Titan-killing, long-term booty call than anything else.

Her.

Succeed.

Gamora:Peter.

Gamora:Peter.

Gambit: You said you’d come through on your word.

And you’re my daughter?

Thanos: Isn’t it true that she’s been enquired about?

“Do it!” says Thanos.

“I adore you more than anything in the world,” Gamora says.

What is going on with Iron Man?

Mr.

In terms of strength, he is exceptional.

She knows she won’t be able to keep him for long.

Spider-Man: To get it off, we have to open his fingers.

Not quite as powerful as before, huh.

My Gamora, Thanos says.

Does she have a location?

Mantis:He.

This monster has nothing to bemoan, Drax says.

Star-Lord:What?

With the Soul Stone in his possession, he returned.

Iron Man:All right, Quill, you’ve got to calm down.

It is imperative that you refrain from participating in any way.

Tell me she’s telling the truth.

As Thanos explained, “I had no choice.” No, you didn’t, Star-Lord.

You didn’t do it, Star-Lord.

Take a deep breath and relax.

“It’s coming, it’s coming, it’s coming!” says Spider-Man, referring to the impending invasion.

Now I understand what you’re talking about.

This is my ship, as you can see.

Wait, what kind of weapon are we talking about here?

Thor: The Thanos-defeating kind of Thor.

Thor:No.

The crumbling of your bodies would coincide with the collapse of your minds into madness.

Raccoon:Does it seem strange that I’m even more eager to do it right now?

“I’m sure he’s on his way somewhere.” The answer is a resounding “no.” Peter Quill: Knowhere?

It’s a pain in the a**.

Flash Gordon, Star-Lord?

You should keep in mind that I’m only half human.

Your mathematical prowess has me completely baffled.

Mantis: Excuse me, but does your friend do this on a regular basis?

Is everyone okay?

Everything is fine with you.

Spider-Man: In order to view alternate futures, Doctor Strange traveled forward in time.

“How many did you happen to see?” says the Star-Lord.

Doctor Strange: Number One; Doctor Strange: Number Two; Doctor Strange: Number Three; Doctor Strange: Number Four; Doctor Strange: Number Five; Doctor Strange: Number Six; Doctor Strange: Number Seven; Doctor Strange: Number Eight; Doctor Strange: Number Seven; Doctor Strange: Number Four; Doctor Strange: Number Five; Doctor Strange: Number Six; Doctor Strange: Number Seven; Doctor Strange: Number Four; Doctor Strange: Number Five; Doctor Strange: Number Six; Doctor Strange: Number Seven; Doctor Strange: Number Four; Doctor Strange: Number Seven “Congratulations,” Doctor Strange says, “you’ve been prophesized.” And I’m a survivor, says Thanos.

“Who wants to murder trillions of people?” says Doctor Strange.

Each and every one of them would be extinct.

‘And then what?’ says Doctor Strange.

The most difficult decisions necessitate the most determined personalities. “I believe you’ll find our will to be equal to yours.” Doctor Strange: Thanos:Our? Quill, you’re a piece of cake in my book. Iron Man: Star-Lord: You could do it if your purpose was to annoy him;

Paul as a Witness to the Resurrection of Jesus

Submitted by Charles L. Quarles When people think of the witnesses to Jesus’ resurrection, they think of people like Peter, John, the surviving members of the Eleven, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, Salome, Cleopas, and his companion, to name a few. Paul may possibly receive an honorable mention at the very most. After all, he did not see the stone that had been rolled away from the path. When the angel announced, “He is not here, for he has risen!” He did not hear it because his ears were closed.

Paul was, without a doubt, absent throughout the forty days following the resurrection, during which Jesus gave his followers with several indisputable evidence of his divinity.

Jesus’ appearance to Paul after his resurrection is described in length three times in the Book of Acts, and it is also referenced to several times by Paul himself in his letters.

As a result, Paul is not only a credible witness to the resurrection of Jesus, at least according to the canons of history, but he is also one of the most important of all of these witnesses to the resurrection.

THE POST-RESURRECTION APPEARANCE TO PAUL

The following is written by Charles L. Quarles When people think of the witnesses to Jesus’ resurrection, they think of people like Peter, John, the surviving members of the Eleven, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, Salome, Cleopas, and his companion, to name a few names. Paul may be given an honorable mention in the very best of circumstances. As a result, he was not aware of the stone that had been removed. When the angel said, “He is not here, for he has risen!” He did not hear it since his ears were closed.

Although Paul was there throughout the forty days after Jesus’ resurrection, during which he presented his followers with several indisputable evidence of his resurrection, he was conspicuously missing from the scene.

Jesus’ appearance to Paul after his resurrection is described in length three times in the Book of Acts, and it is also referenced to several times by Paul himself in his letters.

This means that, at least in terms of historical canon, Paul is not only a valid witness to the resurrection of Jesus, but he is also one of the most significant witnesses to the event.

  1. The circumstances (9:2, 22:5, and 26:12) — Paul was heading to Damascus in order to extradite incarcerated Christians to Jerusalem for trial. When did the event occur? (22:6
  2. 26:13) — It happened around noon or midday. The event took place on the route from Jerusalem to Damascus, near Damascus, according to the Scriptures (9:2–3, 22:6, 26:13). An angelic light shone around Paul on three separate occasions (9:3, 22:6, and 26:13). Reaction (9:4, 22:7, and 26:14) — Paul (and his friends) dropped to the ground, seemingly out of awe for what they had seen
  3. Throughout the book of Samuel, a voice calls out, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?” (9:4–5, 22:7–8, 26:14–15). “Who are you, Lord?” Paul asks in response. When asked who he is, the Lord responds, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting.” There is just a tiny difference between the three summaries of the dialogue. The term “the Nazarene” is included in the 22:8 story. “It is difficult for you to kick against the goads,” the narrative from 26:14 continues. (“Verses in this article are taken from the HCSB translation unless otherwise specified.”)
  4. Paul received two commands from the Lord: “Get up and go into the city, and you will be informed what you must do.” (9:6) and “Get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.” (22:00) Result (9:8—9
  5. 22:11) – Paul is blinded by the brilliance of the light, and he must be carried into Damascus by hand. He also fasts for three days after the incident.

There are significant discrepancies between the two accounts, particularly in terms of the experience of spectators and Paul’s call to the Gentile mission. In 9:3, bystanders heard a voice but did not see anyone as the story progressed. The passersby in 22:9 were able to see the light, but they were unable to hear it. There is no substantial conflict between the two reports of the bystander’s visual experience in the two narratives. Luke merely stated that they were able to see the dazzling light, but not the person (Jesus) who spoke from the light as Luke had previously stated.

  1. A voice was heard by the companions in 9:3, but the description in 22:9 makes it clear that only Paul comprehended the words said by the voice in 9:3 and 22:9.
  2. The stoning of Stephen, as recorded in Acts 6:9 and 7:58, demonstrates that Paul collaborated with the leaders of the Synagogue of the Freedmen.
  3. Because of the linguistic barrier that prevented Hellenists from participating in traditional synagogue service, this particular congregation was most likely founded.
  4. If any of their own number had seen the light and heard the commotion on the Damascus Road, they would have been an especially suited group for Paul’s message.
  5. Although the evidence is insufficient to identify why the spectators heard but did not comprehend the voice that spoke to Paul, this theory is at the very least reasonable given the circumstances.
  6. The third version indicates that Paul received and then transmitted to Ananias Paul’s divine call to take Christ’s name into the Gentile world (Acts 9:6,15; 22:10, 15).
  7. They must be opened by faith in Me so that they may be transformed from darkness into light and from the power of Satan to God (Acts 26:16b –18).

It would be impossible to argue that this account contradicts the earlier accounts without assuming that Luke had forgotten the content of the previous accounts, despite the fact that the same essential account had been recorded twice and despite the fact that the last account only occurred four chapters before the episode of Paul’s appearance before Agrippa.

As a result, the most likely explanation for the discrepancy between the first two stories and the final story is that Luke retrojected the commission given by Jesus through the prophet Ananias into the Damascus Road incident in order to strategically shorten the tale.

Most likely, Paul himself served as Luke’s source for these reports.

Luke had regular and direct access to Paul’s witness, as evidenced by both the Book of Acts and Paul’s writings to the Corinthians.

During the time that Paul was writing his Prison Epistles (Col 4:14), Luke was present with him, and the two had become so close that Paul referred to him as “the beloved physician.” Furthermore, Luke’s accounts of Paul’s experiences are corroborated by allusions in Paul’s correspondence (1 Cor 9:1; 15:8).

THE NATURE OF THIS APPEARANCE

There are significant discrepancies between the two accounts, particularly in regard to the experience of spectators and Paul’s call to the Gentile mission. When the voice was heard but no one was seen in 9:3, the spectators were alarmed. When the light was turned on in 22:9, the onlookers noticed it but did not hear it. When comparing the two reports of the bystander’s visual experience, there is no actual conflict. Rather, Luke merely stated that they were aware of the great light, but were not aware of the person (Jesus) who spoke from it.

  1. However, the story in 9:3 suggests that the companions were aware of a voice, whilst the one in 22:9 confirms that only Paul comprehended the words uttered by the voice.
  2. When it comes to the stoning of Stephen, it is clear from Acts 6:9 and 7:58 that Paul worked alongside the leaders of The Synagogue of the Freedmen.
  3. Because of the linguistic barrier that prevented Hellenists from participating in regular synagogue prayer, this particular congregation was most likely founded.
  4. If any of their own number had seen the light and heard the commotion on the Damascus Road, they would have been an especially suited gathering for Paul’s message.
  5. In addition, the first two narratives suggest that Ananias received and then passed to Paul his divine summons to take the name of Jesus to the Gentiles.

Although Christ commissions Paul explicitly in the last report, he does so indirectly: “For I have appeared to you for this purpose, to appoint you as my servant and a witness of what you have seen and of what I shall reveal to you.” The people and the Gentiles will be rescued by me, and I will save you from them.

I now send you to them to open their hearts so that they may be transformed from darkness into light and from the power of Satan to God (Acts 26:16b –18).

Alternatively, if Jesus had issued a direct commission to Paul in order to prepare the way for Paul’s Gentile mission, Luke would very certainly have stated it in the first story, or at the very least in the first paragraph.

Ananias’s “telescoping” would have been legal because the two earlier accounts laid out the events in their original historical sequence so that readers would be prepared to spot the telescoping and because Jesus’s statement “Get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do” (9:6; 22:10) verified that the charge given through Ananias did indeed carry the Lord’s authority.

It is stated explicitly in Luke’s Prologue to his two-volume book (Luke 1:1–4) that the author conducted extensive research, which included interviews with eyewitnesses (Luke 1:1–4).

According to the use of first-person plural pronouns in Paul’s journey narratives in the book of Acts, Luke was a frequent traveling companion of his.

During the time that Paul was writing his Prison Epistles (Col 4:14), Luke was present with him, and the two had become so close that Paul referred to Luke as “the beloved physician.” Paul’s letters, as well as Luke’s accounts of Paul’s experiences, provide additional confirmation (1 Cor 9:1; 15:8).

CONCLUSION

Paul saw Jesus’ death as vital to the gospel (Rom 1:1–8; 1 Cor 15:3–4), and hence as needed for the forgiveness of sinners (Rom 1:1–8; 1 Cor 15:3). (1 Cor 15:17). According to him, Jesus’ resurrection provided the foundation for believers’ hope in the resurrection (1 Cor 15:20–28) as well as their bravery in the face of severe persecution (1 Cor 15:29b–34). The apostle Paul did not have to depend solely on the witness of others when he proclaimed about the resurrection of Jesus. Paul appears to have referred to his own firsthand account of Jesus’ post-resurrectionappearance in order to support his claims.

When Paul went to Jerusalem, he made a point of emphasizing the fact that he “had seen the Lord on the way and that he had talked to him,” and it was on this premise that Barnabas and eventually the disciples in Jerusalem welcomed Paul (Acts 9:26–28).

Acts 13:32 states that Paul is identifying himself as an equally trustworthy witness to the resurrection, as evidenced by the words “And we ourselves proclaim to you the good news of the promise that was promised to our forefathers.” The Resurrection of Jesus was a central theme in Paul’s teaching at Thessalonica (Acts 17:3), Athens (17:31), and most likely in Corinth as well (Acts 17:4).

  • Taking all of the evidence into consideration, Paul should be considered to be one of the most prominent witnesses of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Who Do People Say Jesus Is? – India

It is my intention to offer an answer to this issue in the form of three sections, each of which will consider how Jesus is perceived both within and outside of the Church in India. The three heads are as follows: In what ways do various groups of people of other religions express their views on Jesus? II. What do other Christian denominations have to say about Jesus? Andiii. What is it that we, as Partners in Mission Today, need to say about Christ? a) The Secular Point of View: Jesus is regarded as one of the greatest persons in the history of the world by large segments of the population.

They are sometimes displayed with images of Gandhi, John F.

It is difficult to comprehend how Kennedy has managed to win over the hearts and minds of so many Tamils.

The fact that all depictions of a wrist watch or other types of timepieces always show the time 10 past 10 supposedly because of the time of Kennedy’s assassination suggests that he may have had an easier time finding a place in the hearts of the people than some of the other martyrs of history may have contributed to his popularity.

  • As for Hinduism on a religious level, most members, with the exception of a small minority of fanatically anti-Christian Hinduttwa believers, have little issue embracing Jesus as one of their deities, according to the Hinduttwa’s own religious texts.
  • When they burn incense in honor of their gods, they also burn incense in honor of the image of Jesus.
  • The One true God’s real existence is formless, and so it is desirable to worship as many manifestations of the One true God as possible in order to honor the One true God.
  • However, it is noteworthy that it is the Sacred Heart, which is surrounded by a crown of thorns and has an inset depiction of an empty cross in the centre, which has grabbed the adoration of the people once again.
  • Jesus, on the other hand, is the source of blessing because of his suffering.
  • This is due to his belief in monism, which is defined as the Non-Twoness of Reality.
  • Jesus was one of those who, by the power of God, were able to overcome this false dualism and achieve oneness with God in this life itself.

Philosophical Hinduism generally considers all pain as being produced by one’s own karma (effort), and if it is not caused by one’s own karma in this incarnation, it must be caused by the working out of karma from a previous life.

Instead, motivated by a strong reverence for Jesus, they are impelled to seek similarities within their own mythology in order to demonstrate that their gods have also suffered vicariously through his death.

As a result, we can observe once more that the crucifixion of Jesus has had a significant impact on the minds of Native Americans.

Krishna Iyer, a retired judge of the Supreme Court of India who is well-known for many landmark decisions on religious freedom and human rights.

“All human qualities of compassion, generosity, fairness, and integrity.have been effectively nailed to the Cross,” he wrote at one point.

The Religious Powers are the modern-day equivalents of Anna and Caiphas.

Among the topics covered will be the Official Declarations issued from time to time and their impact, the perception of Jesus as the “Price Paid for Sin,” and the growing influence of the prosperity-advocating Charismatic Fundamentalism.

Jesus as understood by Christians

A) Jesus in Official Declarations: The following are some of the subjects that have been chosen for debate in the Church’s Conferences and Synods: “Jesus Christ, Light of the World,” “The Servant Lord Jesus,” “Jesus Christ Unites and Liberates,” “Jesus Christ the Prince of Peace,” and so on. Theological discussions and bible studies are excellent venues for delving into such topics in depth. To be used during the Conferences, specially created liturgies, hymns, and songs mirroring the topic will be composed for usage.

  • Unfortunately, the fresh insights and mission goals that emerge from the Conference are generally only preserved in the Conference records.
  • The majority of people either stay unchanged in their understanding or continue to be affected by fundamentalists and independent electronic media outlets.
  • That traditional belief in the incarnation and resurrection of Jesus has not been shattered by scientific reasoning is something to be thankful for.
  • Some of the negative consequences, on the other hand, put a stop to this enjoyment.
  • With Jesus as our Captain, we Christians are sailing securely towards heaven aboard God’s new Noah’s Ark, the Church.
  • We don’t have to be concerned about the state of the world because there is nothing we can do to improve it.
  • To the contrary, the prevailing principles of the Church’s corporate existence are based on a bizarre justification about the ways of the world that is infused with patriarchal culture, elite dominance, and capitalist exploitation.

The perfect health insurance policy, the perfect matchmaker who finds beautiful and wealthy brides for his devotees’ sons, the perfect matchmaker who orders success by leaking question papers so that his believer’s children do well in exams, the perfect matchmaker who orders success by ensuring that his believer’s children have a very successful career.

All of this Jesus does in exchange for frequent contributions to Charismatic preachers who are willing to provide the service of effective prayer in exchange for the contributions.

Those who suffer do so as a result of their refusal to accept Jesus as their Savior.

Consequently, it is apparent that those who died were victims of God’s wrath against the infidels.

According to Christian believers in India, it is this Jesus who is growing increasingly popular. Unfortunately, many Church leaders have become (paid) agents of one or both of these preachers, which is a sad reality that must be acknowledged with shame.

What do the Partners Need to Say about Jesus?

Please allow me to take a quick detour into the pages of the Bible at this point. Most people don’t pay attention to Jesus’ self-description as Son of Man, which may be found in the Caesarea Philippi Conversation, from which our fundamental question for thought was drawn. We appear to believe that it is only a simple reminder of our Lord’s humanity. Alternatively, we believe it is a modest method of referring to oneself, as opposed to the pompous “I.” It is only because the disciples appeared to have missed the significance of the passage that they were confused about the possibility of the Son of Man needing to suffer.

“Can you tell me who people believe the Son of Man is?” In both Mark and Luke, the word “I am” is used in lieu of the letter “S.” However, both of those Gospels, immediately following Peter’s confession of Jesus as the Son of God and the Messiah of God, go on to record Jesus equating the S o M with the Messiah and adding that, as the S o M, he must suffer.

When the same people who crucified Christ realize in the Lifted Up Son of Man the everlasting I AM, they will have discovered the Truth that will set them free and will have set them free.

(See, for example, Jn 8:27ff and 12:31-36) So, what exactly does all of this mean?

We may see the connection between Jesus’ self-understanding and his need to suffer when we consider that by S o M, he meant that he is the all-time corporate representation of all of humanity’s suffering and striving peoples throughout history.

Daniel recognizes this reality and gives it the moniker “Son of Man” in a vision he had during the night hours (see Dan ch 7:13-27).

To the extent that Jesus is the embodied Reality of God in Solidarity with the Oppressed, he is compelled to suffer the same fate as the oppressed in order to show his commitment to solidarity.

This implies that, just as we identify the Son of Man, the I Am in the crucified Jesus, we must likewise acknowledge the Son of Man, the I Am in the crucified Jesus.

An acknowledgment of this kind should compel the oppressors and their abettors (i.e., the vast majority of humanity) to engage in horizontal repentance towards the Collective of the Oppressed.

This self-disclosure of Jesus is only completely recognized when we begin to recognize it for what it is. Only then will we be genuinely and totally immersed in Mission.
