Answer this question. In your heart do you honestly believe that Jesus would say to Saul to go off and kill other human beings including women and children and infants simply because of actions by their ancestors??

>>We are all going to die. Why didn’t Jesus just grant everyone the ability to live forever? He had the ability.
The goal is not to live forever in our present condition but to escape the present condition through death.

You need to get your Christianity straight. Here is what Jesus said, I suggest you study these words a bit longer:
"Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

>>“Such as these” referred to here all died.
It may not be what you want to hear but it is the truth.
When we were in our mothers womb could we stay there?
Was it bad for us to be born.
Was it evil for birth to happen to us.

You seem to think that Jesus would have said:

"Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy everything that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys."

If you honestly think that Jesus' teachings are compatible with this kind of commandment, then obviously you have no inkling of Jesus' message. Go ahead and justify it all you want, see what that gets you.

>>It gets me a whole picture of Jesus’s nature.
Patient but with an intense hatred of evil.
In Matthew 24:13 Jesus is describing His return.
He compares it to Noah’s time when all but six people on earth were killed.
He also compares it to Lot’s time when all the people of Sodom but three were killed.

This is not to say that Jesus is not patient, and kind.
He is patient and kind.
But evil will not be tolerated forever.
