    I guess many will only respond to being asked about what Jesus Christ the human being (rather than God/man) would like...

    He would love Sibelius's 7th symphony.

    An interesting question. He would be familiar with: the Temple music of the time, celebratory music (as He heard at a wedding he attended), hymns of the day (He and his followers are mentioned as singing one together). It appears to me that He understood the uses of music and participated in them. I have no idea what classical selections would pique His interests.

    Probably, like most people, he would not have liked music that strayed too far from the music he knew and grew up with. Bach would probably have been ugly nonsense to him.

    It's impossible to know what the man Jesus would like - there'd be a limited choice open, one presumes.

    If I am thinking of Him as divine - I can't see that He'd dislike any music. He'd 'get the point' of it all.

    Normally, these kinds of question are what historical figure A would have thought when confronted with modern situation B. And normally there can be no meaningful answer to the question other than to ruminate about how times or circumstances of situation B are different from or resemble those of the times of person A, whichever applies. Often, the proposed situation of B is so foreign to person A that little can be said, other than he or she would be astounded or confounded by it.

    Here, I assume that Jesus is used not merely as a historical figure but also because there is a widely held presumption of a divine status (particularly with the added designation of "our Lord"), which is a very different situation since the context of the divine cannot be limited to any one point in time. But, because the divine is also a concept that mostly encompasses characteristics which are themselves unfathomable, we find ourselves in a similar problem, even if for slightly different reasons.

    To the extent that we envision a divine force, we each tend to form our own sense of it. Much of that sense may be shaped by our own preferences (a condition that has not gone unnoticed or unremarked upon by those who eschew the idea of the divine). Personally, I think God would "like" any music that is beautiful (and, since I come from a Protestant background, I presume that he or she would forgive the rest). And having used that word, I suspect I open up the discussion of what constitutes beauty.

    I haven't the slightest idea. Probably not death metal IMO.

    I'm sure he would be a big fan of Delius.
    Delius would not take this well though.

    Have you ever heard people singing in tongues? Jesus likes that.



    There are a lot of videos of it I'm sure, this is just one example.

    I used to believe I could speak in tongues myself. I can think of one:

    He would get a kick out of Mozart's Don Giovanni.

    In general, thoughts about this one go in Dionysian directions. But as to the man, Rabbi Jesus, very conservative and standard chanting of the prayers and the Torah.
