Was the lingua franca in roman empire latin or greek at that time? It seems more likely it was greek - hence the NT written in greek. Hasn't greece a preivileged link to early christianity? After all constantinople was on their soil.

It's like saying I'm fully straight and fully gay. At the same time.
I think it's silly to think otherwise, especially for science-worshipers who consider that God was invented by humans to serve some psychological need. God, then, even if you're totally skeptical about God's "existence", is intrinsically human.
It's the old mind-body problem. Some philosophers (and some people on this board) think that the mind is completely distinct from the body. Goes back to Plato and long before that, and it shaped Christianity and Islam. I think this is a mistake.
God is as separate from the human as your brain is from your heart: it's just not.
Jesus said that "the kingdom of God is within you". He only had to make the distinction of the kingdom of God in order to dispel the ideas in his culture that heaven actually was a separate realm.
Luke 16 wrote:Once, having been asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, "The kingdom of God does not come with your careful observation, 21nor will people say, 'Here it is,' or 'There it is,' because the kingdom of God is within[b] you."
22Then he said to his disciples, "The time is coming when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man, but you will not see it. 23Men will tell you, 'There he is!' or 'Here he is!' Do not go running off after them. 24For the Son of Man in his day[c] will be like the lightning, which flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other. 25But first he must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation.
26"Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. 27People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all.
28"It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. 29But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all.
30"It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed. 31On that day no one who is on the roof of his house, with his goods inside, should go down to get them. Likewise, no one in the field should go back for anything. 32Remember Lot's wife! 33Whoever tries to keep his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it. 34I tell you, on that night two people will be in one bed; one will be taken and the other left. 35Two women will be grinding grain together; one will be taken and the other left."[d]
37"Where, Lord?" they asked.
He replied, "Where there is a dead body, there the vultures will gather."
Unfortunately, Western tradition still has not for the most part figured that out.
I also think that straight and gay are the same thing.
