Muslims claim that Jesus was a Muslim even though he drank wine. Also the quran tells Muslims not to take Jews or Christians as friends and to crucify Christians. My views on the Christ are not conventional by any stretch of the imagination. An acquaintance of mine made a documentary on the Lord known as the the Caesar’s Messiah.
His premise is that Jesus didn’t actually exist and that he was actually a literary coup benchmarking the Jewish typology. If that was the case it was the most brilliant mass manipulation since Moses. But I have a slightly different perspective. Many people point to the fact that Josephus didn’t mention Jesus and that any reference to him was a spurious retro insertion. But many overlook the fact that Josephus was a Samaritan and Jesus was overtly biased against Samaritans. Observe:
Josephan scholarship in the 19th and early 20th century became focused on Josephus’ relationship to the sect of thePharisees. It consistently portrayed him as a member of the sect, and as a traitor to the Jewish nation—a view which became known as the classical concept of Josephus. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Josephus#Josephus_scholarship
In response Vespasian decided to keep Josephus as a hostage and interpreter. After Vespasian did become Emperor in 69, he granted Josephus his freedom, at which time Josephus assumed the emperor’s family name of Flavius. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Josephus#Josephus_scholarship
Josephus was a Pharisee and the Pharisees were Samaritans. Jesus debated them relentlessly calling them offspring of vipers.
“These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: “Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans.” Matt 10:5
But what of the account of the Good Samaritan? Well, the disciples knew very well how Jesus felt about Samaritans, so when they asked him “Who is my brother?” because Jesus was trying to teach them a philosophical brother hood, a philoish.
Philia (/ˈfɪljə/ or /ˈfɪliə/; Ancient Greek: φιλία), often translated “brotherly love“, is one of the four ancient Greek words for love: philia, storge, agape and eros. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philia
The Good Samaritan was the exception to the rule, not the rule, the exception proves the rule BECAUSE it is an exception. If a Samaritan acted like that he would be your brother, notice that in the parable Jesus also uses a Pharisee as an example of what a person who is not your brother would do. The adherents to the law code of Abraham, not that of Moses and not that of Jesus.
THE SATANIC CHRIST
“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.” Revelation 22:16
Lucifer (/ˈluːsɪfər/ or /ˈljuːsɪfər/) is the King James Version rendering of the Hebrew word הֵילֵל in Isaiah. This word, transliterated hêlêl or heylel, occurs only once in the Hebrew Bible and according to the KJV-influenced Strong’s Concordance means “shining one, morning star, Lucifer”. The word Lucifer is taken from the LatinVulgate, which translates הֵילֵל as lucifer,[Isa 14:12] meaning “the morning star, the planetVenus“, or, as an adjective, “light-bringing”. TheSeptuagint renders הֵילֵל in Greek as ἑωσφόρος (heōsphoros), a name, literally “bringer of dawn”, for the morning star. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucifer
Jesus was claiming to be lucifer. Not only that, behold:
5Or haven’t you read in the Law that the priests on Sabbath duty in the temple desecrate the Sabbath and yet are innocent? 6I tell you that something greater than the temple is here. 7If you had known what these words mean, ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice,’a you would not have condemned the innocent. 8For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.” Matt: 12
Jesus wasn’t claiming to be the lord of the sabbath so much as he was claiming to be the god of death. Pythagorus name means I am the Python, snakes are chthonic figures, synonymous with death. The Jews helenized and absorbed the Greek culture, Jesus, the carpenter was part of a Pythagorean math cult, he even makes reference to the “cornerstone that the rejected” to this day that is a Freemasonic reference. The Freemasons claim their origins were Pythagorean math cults.
The word Shiva comes from the Hebrew word shiv’ah, which literally means “seven”. The tradition was developed in response to the story in Genesis 50:1-14 in which Joseph mourns the death of his father Jacob (Israel) for seven days. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shiva_(Judaism)#Etymology
The Sabbath is Saturday, Sabado, the Seventh day, lol. Jesus was saying that he was Shiva, the god of death.
“The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.’ http://biblehub.com/luke/7-34.htm
Can anybody think of a religion today that forbids drinking alcohol? Muslims. Abrahamic law covenant. Ask yourself this question, Why did Jesus turn water into wine? The signature miracle of the cult of Bacchus?
The Bacchanalia were Roman festivals of Bacchus, based on various ecstatic elements of the Greek Dionysia. They seem to have been popular, and well-organised, throughout the central and southern Italian peninsula. They were almost certainly associated with Rome’s native cult of Liber, and probably arrived in Rome itself around 200 BC but like all mystery religions of the ancient world, very little is known of their rites.
I want you to meditate on the nature of the early initiations of secret societies, many being held in caves and the allegory of plato’s cave and what that has to do with modern media. If you can control what people see and hear, you can control what they think and do. Philosopher kings, Guardians, Slaves. Which are you? Do you think for yourself?
24But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, “It is only by Beelzebul, the prince of demons, that this fellow drives out demons.”
25Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand. 26If Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then can his kingdom stand? 27And if I drive out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your people drive them out? So then, they will be your judges. 28But if it is by the Spirit of God that I drive out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.
I have mentioned this before, that Jesus didn’t specifically deny that he was casting out demons by the power of Beelzebub and instead makes a reference to the temple of Solomon who built gods temple using sorcery. But I am bringing this up again for a different reason.
n the Testament of Solomon, Beelzebul (not Beelzebub) appears as prince of the demons and says (6.2) that he was formerly a leading heavenly angel who was (6.7) associated with the star Hesperus (which is the normal Greek name for the planet Venus (Αφροδíτη) as evening star). Seemingly, Beelzebul here is simplyLucifer. Beelzebul claims to cause destruction through tyrants, to cause demons to be worshipped among men, to excite priests to lust, to cause jealousies in cities and murders, and to bring on war. The Testament of Solomon is a Hellenistic[disambiguation needed] Old Testament pseudepigraphical work, purportedly written by KingSolomon, in which Solomon mostly describes particular demons whom he enslaved to help build the temple, with substantial Christian interpolations.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beelzebub
Rabbinical literature commentary equates Baal Zebub of Ekron as lord of the “fly.”The word Ba‘al Zebûb in rabbinical texts is a mockery of the Ba’al religion, which ancient Hebrews considered to be idol worship. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beelzebub#Judaism
I want you to remind yourself that Socrates exposed the “pretenders to wisdom” and he was known as the gadfly. He was also an initiate of the Pythagorean math cults.
This transformation or humanization of the Satyr appears throughout late Greek art. Another example of this shift occurs in the portrayal of Medusa and in that of the Amazon, characters who are traditionally depicted as barbaric and uncivilized. A very humanized Satyr is depicted in a work of Praxiteles known as the “Resting Satyr“.
Greek spirits [non-classical] known as Calicantsars have a noticeable resemblance to the ancient satyrs; they have goats’ ears and the feet of donkeys or goats or horses, are covered with hair, and love women and the dance.
Although they are not mentioned by Homer, in a fragment of Hesiod‘s works they are called brothers of the mountain nymphs and Kuretes, strongly connected with the cult of Dionysus. In the Dionysus cult, male followers are known as satyrs and female followers as maenads or bacchants.
I want you to contemplate this for an instant. What if in ancient Greece, on Saturday, everybody went to the theater and got drunk and acted stupid and went home and had sex, sometimes with their wives. When the Pharisees accused Jesus of “casting out demons” what did that mean? Atheists hear a phrase like “casting out demons” and they scoff, that is so humorous to them. They lose interest, but, they don’t understand the perspective of the person expressing themselves in that fashion. Something you probably didn’t know because of your obvious lack of interest in any form of religious language.
Some have offered an explanation suggesting that people once held the folk belief that a person’s soul could be thrown from their body when they sneezed, that sneezing otherwise opened the body to invasion by the Devil or evil spirits, or that sneezing was the body’s effort to force out an invading evil presence. In these cases, “God bless you” or “bless you” is used as a sort of shield against evil. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God_bless_you
So when the Persian/Samaritan/Pharisees accused Jesus of casting out demons by the power of beelzebub, contemplate for a moment that they might have been referring to laughter…
ISLAM prohibits sinful speech that intends to cause harm to other human beings. It also prohibits excessive laughter or extreme humor. http://www.arabnews.com/news/454234
Laughter, fun, and joking are permissible in Islam provided guidelines from Quran and Hadith are followed. For humour to be in accordance with Islam, the joke should not insult anyone, should not frighten anyone, should be within the limits of Islamic tolerance, should tell the truth, should not be offensive, should not contain unIslamic material or promote immorality and indecency.
I AM GOING TO LEAVE YOU WITH THIS…
You Are of Your Father the Devil
39 They answered him, “Abraham is our father.” Jesus said to them, “If you were Abraham’s children, you would be doing the works Abraham did, 40 but now you seek to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. This is not what Abraham did. 41 You are doing the works your father did.” They said to him, “We were not born of sexual immorality. We have one Father—even God.” 42 Jesus said to them,“If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and I am here. I came not of my own accord, but he sent me. 43 Why do you not understand what I say? It is because you cannot bear to hear my word. 44 You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45 But because I tell the truth, you do not believe me. 46 Which one of you convicts me of sin? If I tell the truth, why do you not believe me? 47 Whoever is of God hears the words of God. The reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God.”
