Say That AgainSay That Again

Actor Humphrey Bogart would not say, “Play it again, Sam,” inside the 1942 film “Casablanca.” His co-star, Ingrid Bergman, told the piano player at “Rick’s Cafe Americain Nightclub,” “Play it once, Sam, for old time’s sake. Play ‘As Time Goes By.'” The misquote is memorable. But, how did folks believe Bogart said hello?

“Me Tarzan, you Jane.” This quotation is explained by a meeting in which actor Johnny Weissmuller declared that his role in “Tarzan the Ape man” didn’t require his skill for an actor. Explainable, yes, but he wouldn’t provide the quote from the film.

William Shatner, playing Captain Kirk inside the TV series and films titled, “Star Trek,” would not say, “Beam me up Scotty,” in different of them.

What did Tom Hanks’ character, “Forrest Gump” say with regards to a box of chocolate? Web Search to find out if what Gump said inside film is really what you heard. These are harmless mis-quotations, but sometimes a misquotation of any real person might change a person’s outcome.

Web Search, Matthew 28: 16-20. Jesus, 3 days after his crucifixion and death, defeated death. He seemed to his surviving eleven disciples, because he foretold. Disciple Matthew quoted the resurrected Jesus. You will not find, “Now go forth and grow the Christian Church,” among Jesus’ words. Yet, many Christians feel that Jesus commanded his disciples to accomplish this. Rather, he told his disciples to travel out making more disciples of (I think madness is “in”) every one of the nations. This command popped the path to salvation for all, besides the Hebrew People to whom Jesus was sent. These verses these are known as “The Great Commission.”

Matthew wrote what he heard (the way in which he remembered it). Matthew also wrote Matthew 18: 20, which (I believe) describes the Christian Church as a minimum of two people who cooperate to worship God (in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). Jesus said over these verses that she would be there with these. That fits with verse 20 of Matthew 28: 16-20. To me, the emphasis seems to be on a disciple you never know and can teach the commands of Jesus to a different person who is able to learn, to simply accept, and obey the teaching, which enables that second person becoming a disciple and teach another individual.
