The book covers everthing from the Jesus timeline and hostory - matched to known history - to the teachings of Paul and on to the prophecy of Malachy which has Francis the last Pope before the Judgement. No need to read it ... you were told about it, so, the Bible states you will be held responsible for the information it contains and points out.
Christians believed John, then Jesus, represented the Davidic Prophecy. The savior idea is that he would speak for them -- argue their case ... it's in the book.
All things are B&W grey is when the light & shadow makes you wonder which it is.

The foundatiom of the Augustine Church is that believe. The foundation of the biblical on is the Law and Jesus as you spokesman (lawyer). And he stated he wouldn't know the Augustine group (as 'prophecy'). We are way off topic, so ending this thread, READ "Saint Paul's Joke"
All reactions are learned, instinct has little influence beyond starting the process. Moms heartbeat reflect comfort floating in water in womb. Associate that to touch when held, hugs, ... if baby were pinched every time held, the pinch would be pleasant. If brain is,wired a bit off, the connections are different... and that's higher than 1%.
Filled law is consistent with Torah ... hence orthodox Jew is made foundation of church.
And we are so far off topic it isn't funny.
Pleasure or pain, same nerve endings. There are conditions where all touch is pain, or all human touch is. We learn to interpret the nature of physical contact ... infants a newly born have no reference points except moms heartbeat, so cuddle touch creates the pleasant response.
Paul mandates adherence to all the laws. Jesus fulfilled the law and cited Torah. Only Augustine said the Jews didn't get it, and he promoted the old Roman ways.
That view is Augustine, and shows how pervasive his teaching are. The Davidic Prophecy was used to explain John the Baptist and his cousin Jesus. Jesus was a Rabbi, a teacher, and student of Hillel.

All things related to the sense of touch are, to a degree, pain. The idea of anesthesia is to make the touch unnoticeable.
