Judas commits suicide

12 Jul

After Jesus was arrested the story goes on to the next morning when Judas claims he had guilt for handing over Jesus.

Matt: Early in the morning all the chief priests and the elders made their plan against Jesus to put him to death. They put him in chains, led him off, and handed him over to Pilate, the Roman governor.

When Judas, the traitor, learned that Jesus had been condemned, he repented and took back the thirty silver coins to the chief priests and the elders. “I have sinned by betraying an innocent man to death!” He said. “What do we care about that?” They answered. “That is your business!” Judas threw the coins down in the Temple and left, and then he went off and hanged himself. The chief priests picked up the coins and said, “This is blood money, and it is against our Law to put it in the Temple treasury.” After reaching an agreement about it, they used the money to buy Potter’s Field, as a cemetery for foreigners. That is why that field is called ‘Field of Blood’, to this very day. Then what the prophet Jeremiah had said came true; “they took the thirty silver coins, the amount the people of Israel had agreed to pay for him, and used the money to buy the potters field, as the Lord had commanded me.”

The cemetery for foreigners or Potters Field was built because the coins were considered blood money. In the previous script Peter’s way of speaking gave him away as Jesus’ follower. Jesus then spoke the same as Peter, which is probably why it’s the Field of Blood – a cemetery for foreigners. Jesus and Peter are related which is evident in the gospel of John (Peter is the son of John) and therefore share the same accent or blood line which probably did not originate in Jerusalem.

The discovery of Judas’ Gospels gives doubt to his death since the contents speak of the last supper. Judas, it appears committed suicide according to the bible before Jesus was crucified. If you take into consideration the timing from the last supper, the betrayal and then Judas throwing back the money and then committing suicide – then, when did he write his gospels? This questions who wrote the account.

Therefore this illusion must and does include Judas. This questions his supposed suicide. I am suggesting he did not die at that moment – Because at some point from somewhere Judas Gospels were written. It must be said, that the discovery of the Judas Gospels has placed the bible and Christianity into question.

Jesus is arrested

7 Jul

The story moves onto Jesus being arrested.

Matt: Jesus was still speaking, when Judas, one of the twelve disciples, arrived. With him was a large crowd armed with swords and clubs and sent by the chief priests and the elders. The traitor had given the crowd a signal. “The man I kiss is the one you want. Arrest him!” Judas went straight to Jesus and said, “Peace be with you, Teacher,” and kissed him. Jesus answered, “be quick about it, friend!” Then they came up, arrested Jesus, and held him tight. One of those who were with Jesus drew his sword and struck at the High Priest’s slave, cutting off his ear. “Put your sword back in its place,” Jesus said to him. “All who take the sword will die by the sword.”

Jesus continued “Don’t you know that I could call on my Father for help, and at once he would send me more than twelve armies of angels? But in that case, how could the scriptures come true which say that this is what must happen?” Then Jesus spoke to the crowd, “did you have to come with swords and clubs to capture me, as though I were an outlaw? Every day I sat down and taught in the Temple, and you did not arrest me. But all this has happened in order to make come true what the prophets wrote in the Scriptures.” Then all the disciples left him and ran away.

I mentioned in earlier blogs that there was no need for Judas to be paid to betray Jesus because not only had he said many times he would be arrested the authors have written many times in the lead up to the arrest, they knew where Jesus was.

The authors through Jesus’ words ‘again’ are drumming home to the reader that every day Jesus sat down and taught in the Temple. It is very clear for anyone reading the texts Jesus marketed his plan and the authors have used a great deal of creative drama to make the story intentionally sensational.

Jesus was still speaking (or trying to wake the disciples) when Judas of the twelve disciples arrived. The coming of this event was mentioned at the Passover Meal so both Judas and the disciples knew the incident was to occur. Jesus was known for his trouble and would teach in the temple every day and yet Judas still had to identify him by the kiss.

The disciples could not remain awake, so how would they run away? That is because they slept while the sons of Zebedee, James and John ran away to take up their next position.

‘All who take the sword die by the sword.’ This is Jesus’ own words and yet if you refer to Matthew, chapter 10, verse 34. Jesus said “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the world? No. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.” Jesus is later speared by a sword on the cross which means by his own admission Jesus took the sword. This can be interpreted many ways but in my thoughts none of it is good and only enhances war and danger.

You will notice, first in the desert after Jesus was baptized (although he was at a wedding at the same time), he preached not to test god. Again in this verse Jesus says Don’t you know that I could call on my Father for help, and at once he would send me more than twelve armies of angels? It is interesting because with all this talk about how god will send his angels, Jesus conveniently never pushes god to do it. This is not about testing god it is about the inability of an existing god to perform such miracles.

A thought I have often had, at the arrest it is said there was a huge crowd who came with the arresters for Jesus. Throughout the texts, as I have previously pointed out Jesus angered many people. It has been repeatedly written; the people did not trust Jesus and called him a liar and a coward. Jesus spent a lot of time hiding and even just before his last supper he hid. My point is through the authors’ creative writing they may have had to have Jesus plot his own death, which he trialled on Lazarus so he could escape unchallenged to Greece for his own safety from the crowds. And in the interest of the High Priests they may have agreed to the plan because of the disruption he was causing with the outcasts who did follow him and equally those numbers were growing also. A lot of what is yet to come suggests this is possible.

Jesus’ plan begins to unfold

6 Jul

Now the games begin. I keep writing about the ‘Ah ha’ factor which will come in the gospel of John after all the drama is done but it is when that factor kicks in is when you may find yourself going back to these coming shenanigans to realize that is what they are – shenanigans.

I need you to put on your creative thinking cap, focus in on the story because over the next so many blogs I will need you to be on topic with me. I will try my best to make sense in the unravelling and once you get the gist of it all, I hope you enjoy it as much as I will enjoy showing you.

Let’s begin:

Matt: Then Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane and he said to them, “Sit here while I go over there to pray.” He took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee. Grief and anguish came over him, and he said to them, “the sorrow in my heart is so great that it almost crushes me. Stay here and keep watch with me.” He went a little farther on, threw himself face downward on the ground, and prayed. “My Father, if it is possible, take this cup of suffering from me! Yet not what I want, but what you want.”

Then he turned to the three disciples and found them asleep, and he said to Peter, “How is it that you three were not able to keep watch with me for even an hour? Keep watch and pray that you will not fall into temptation. The Spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Once more Jesus went away and prayed, “My Father, if this cup of suffering cannot be taken away unless I drink it, your will be done.” He returned once more and found the disciples asleep; they could not keep their eyes open. Again Jesus left them, went away, and prayed the third time, saying the same words. Then he returned to the disciples and said; “are you still sleeping and resting? Look! The hour has come for the Son of Man to be handed over to the power of sinful men. Get up; let us go, look, here is the man who is betraying me!”

Judas had left the other disciples at the Passover meal and was suppose to have brought the soldiers. Jesus told the remainder of the disciples, which means there were eleven left to sit while he prayed. He took Peter and the two sons of Zebedee who I believe actually remained awake and told them to stay and watch with him. You will recall earlier that it was Peter, James and John, the sons of Zebedee who was with Jesus when they witnessed Moses and Elijah on the high mountain. These three will play an important role.

Jesus went a little farther and turned to the disciples and found them asleep. At first I presumed that it was Peter and the two sons of Zebedee who fell asleep but then I realized as the story unfolded that they remained awake and it was the ‘other’ disciples who were asleep. I realized Jesus’ comment was because Peter and the two sons of Zebedee were not able to keep the other disciples awake. (You can read this in your own bible)

The conversation only transpires between Peter who makes up the three with the two sons of Zebedee, who were awake with Jesus. Jesus leaves them three times and each time his disciples are asleep, the ‘other’ disciples not the three in on Jesus’ plan. Peter communicates with Jesus.

Are you getting the three connections?

‘The spirit was willing but the flesh was weak.’ This strongly indicates the flesh was weak because of a sleeping drug. The others could not keep their eyes open. According to the Last Supper story, this was Jesus’ final hour so in my thoughts wouldn’t the disciples have been eager to remain awake? Except, if they were under the influence of some sleeping drug then this would make it difficult for them. It was while they slept Jesus tried to convince them to witness that his hour had come, he said “get up, let us go, here is the man who is betraying me.”

They could not run away because their bodies wanted to ‘sleep’. Sleeping drugs have been documented throughout history before and after this supposed event.

So who is it who runs? I will tell you as the plot begins to thicken.

The points I need you to remember are: The three main disciples with Jesus on this plan are clearly named as Peter and the two sons of Zebedee. These three disciples’ names will keep coming up. I will be cross referencing as I go along to keep you tuned into the plan as it unfolds. The next point is, in this gospel it heavily markets how the remainder of the disciples want to sleep. Before you suggest it, yes they could be sleepy because of the wine or even because it was late but that could explain maybe one or two but not all of them? All of them, with the exception of the three who need to remain awake because as Jesus has already told us at the last supper, Peter will denounce him three times, so already the clue tells us Peter remains awake. Peter and the two sons of Zebedee whose names are James and John Zebedee will make up the three in the coming story.

Jesus’ Last Night

5 Jul

After the Last Supper in the book of Matthew the story continues with affirmations from Jesus by the authors. Let’s take a closer look at these affirmations.

Matt: Then Jesus said to them; “this very night all of you will run away and leave me, for the scripture says, God will kill the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered. But after I am raised to life, I will go to Galilee ahead of you.” Jesus said to Peter, “I tell you that before the rooster crow tonight, you will say three times that you do not know me.” Peter answered; “I will never say that, even if I have to die with you.” And all the other disciples said the same thing.

It is possible if the disciples were given a sleeping drug in their wine as I pointed out in the previous blog, then the effect will not cause them to so much run away but to sleep as the coming texts will confirm. So who will run – the bible tells us this answer and that too is in the coming texts. Jesus reinforced that after the crucifixion he will go ahead and join them in Galilee, spoken like a man. He will go ahead and will meet up with them when the ordeal is over.

Peter will deny Jesus three times before the rooster crows tonight. Although a rooster can crow at anytime, this is an evening meal and then there is the Mount Olive trip, afterwards the arrest, which indicates the evening must be getting very late, even for a rooster, and this is all before the rooster crows tonight!

This is more directed to the three points, rather than the rooster, the three points of deceit which is about to unfold within the pages of the gospels.

The biblical authors have told us upfront what it is we need to look for. A creative licence has been employed to bring out the Entwined Story.

First up Jesus has promoted that his disciples will run. He has promoted a rooster will crow – three points by Peter. And if you recall I said Peter was a part of the plan. Jesus has promoted he will go to Galilee ahead of everyone where he will meet up with them after he supposedly rises from death.

None of these are prophesies instead this is a premeditate plan. The last supper was the opportunity for the authors to lay out that plan for it to unfold.

And I want to say this now in case I forget later – the authors were brilliant…

In the Gospel of Matthew

4 Jul

The story in the gospel of John about the Last Supper has a little different version in the gospel of Matthew.

Matt: on the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Jesus and asked him, “Where do you want us to get the Passover meal ready for you?” “Go to a certain man in the city,” he said to them, “and tell him, The Teacher says; my hour has come, my disciples and I will celebrate the Passover at your house.” The disciples did as Jesus had told them and prepared the Passover meal. When it was evening, Jesus and the twelve disciples sat down to eat. During the meal Jesus said; “I tell you, one of you will betray me.” The disciples were very upset and began to ask him, one after the other, “Surely Lord, you don’t mean me?” Jesus answered “One who dips his bread in the dish with me will betray me. The Son of Man will die as the scriptures say he will, but how terrible for that man who will betray the Son of Man! It would have been better for that man if he had never been born!” Judas, the traitor, spoke up, “Surely, Teacher, you don’t mean me?” He asked. Jesus answered, “So you say.”

Again; ‘Go to a certain Man’ who already had organized with Jesus to have the meal at his home, like the owner of the donkeys that Jesus had prepared in advance. Jesus prepared and marketed his own grandness. This is not the profile of a humble man.

This is an evening meal to establish the time. Judas and Jesus prepared the betrayal. One who dips his bread in the dish with me is Judas because they are both in on the trickery. Jesus reprimands Peter earlier for suggesting Jesus should not die and now Jesus says Judas should never have been born for organizing his death. One statement contradicts the other. The traitor speaks up, “surely teacher you don’t mean me.” Judas gives the appearance Jesus has prophesied. These points will be further verified later.

Matt: While they were eating, Jesus took a piece of bread, gave a prayer of thanks, broke it, and gave it to his disciples. “Take and eat it,” he said; “this is my body.” Then he took a cup, gave thanks to God, and gave it to them. “Drink it, all of you,” he said; “this is my blood, which seals God’s covenant, my blood poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. I tell you, I will never again drink this wine until the day I drink this wine with you in my Father’s Kingdom.” Then they sang a hymn and went out to the Mount of Olives.

I find the drinking of ones blood and eating ones body regardless of any magical interpretation is nothing short of a ritualistic ceremony denoting cannibalism and of one who will devour many! This action appears nowhere in the Jewish faith. This is a Passover meal and none of these rituals are in the celebrated meal recognized by the Jews. “Eat My Body, Drink My Blood.” He took a cup and said “drink it.” – Repulsive.

It is possible the contents of the wine were a heavy narcotic drug, organized by the man who owned the home. Maybe this drug was administered to those disciples to whom Jesus did not want involved; because as the story moves along his disciples become sleepy.

Then they went out to the Mount of Olives. Jesus states the wine will never be drank again until with you in his Fathers Kingdom. In other words as in ‘Revelation’ blood will be spilt at the ‘End Time’ where Jesus will drink the blood of victory and witness the destruction of humankind – a bit of drama to spice up the story.

Preparation for the Last Supper

3 Jul

After Jesus encountered the Greeks he went into hiding. The authors were thorough and have allowed Jesus time to prepare for his arrest. The storyline does not go immediately into the arrest but instead there was time unaccounted for while he hid. Again the gospel of John highlights this happening.

Jn: after Jesus said this, he went off and hid himself from them. Even though he had performed all these miracles in their presence, they did not believe him.

The gospels are very straight forward about Jesus being a coward and the people not believing in him. I find this part fascinating and the fact that this point is repeated numerous times throughout the gospels, most people prefer to ignore these points. Jesus was not believed by people during his supposed time and yet two thousand years later there are thousands of people who do believe him. I’m sure if the authors were alive today they would be very frustrated.

Going with the flow of the Entwined Story if would appear Jesus hid himself because now is the time he must prepare for his simulated death in order to trick the world and then escape to Greece with the help of the Greeks who had turned up looking for Jesus. The Vatican in its records has information that will match this detail regarding the Greek Church after the time of this supposed event and this I will cover in my final explanation.

The story in the gospel of John moves onto what has been called “The Last Supper”.

Jn: Jesus and his disciples were at supper. The Devil had already put the thought of betraying Jesus into the heart of Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot. So Jesus rose from the table, took off his outer garment, and tied a towel around his waist and began to wash his disciple’s feet and dry them with the towel.

Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot had already been present at Lazarus’ house whilst Mary prepared Jesus for his burial and was fully aware of Jesus’ coming death. Therefore no betrayal was needed or occurred. On other occasions Jesus had announced his death numerous times. There was no surprise element, no betrayal required. Already the authorities were after Jesus (and Lazarus) and knew where he was. Judas does not commit suicide but instead goes behind the scenes to prepare the illusion. This is why he had to appear to have died. He did not die then because there are Judas Gospels which were discovered in recent history.

Jn: “I will dip some bread in the sauce and give it to him, he is the man.” As soon as Judas took the bread; Jesus said to him; “hurry and do what you must do.”

“My children, I shall not be with you very much longer. You will look for me, but I tell you now, what I told the Jewish authorities, you cannot go where I am going.”

Jesus has announced he is going to die, so why would he expect them to look for him? No, that is because he is going to Greece, he does not want them to look for him or follow. Even the Jewish authorities knew this plan, which is why he was allowed to appear to die from the pen of the authors.

Some Greeks in the Bible from John

2 Jul

You may recall in an earlier blog on 19/6/14 I quoted a piece which mentioned the Greek Cities and I mentioned then not to take that mention lightly:

Jn: Jesus said, “I shall be with you a little while longer, and then I shall go away to him who sent me. You will look for me, but you will not find me, because you cannot go where I will be.” The Jewish authorities said among themselves, “Where is he about to go so that we shall not find him? Will he go to the Greek cities where our people live, and teach the Greeks? He says that we will look for him but will not find him, and that we cannot go where he will be. What does he mean?”

In the following piece, this random Greek subject is brought up again. I have also mentioned on several occasions the main Entwined Story is located in the Gospel of John – John the Baptist, related to Jesus and yet John the Baptist was beheaded – killed off by the authors at the start of Jesus’ mission. It is curious, out of all the gospels it is the Book of John which holds the main plot to the whole affair.

The second Greek mention is as follows:

John: ‘Some Greeks’ were among those who had gone to Jerusalem to worship during the festival. They went to Philip (he was from Bethsaida in Galilee) and said; “Sir, we want to see Jesus.” Philip went and told Andrew and the two of them went and told Jesus. Jesus answered them; “the hour has now come for the Son of Man to receive great glory. I am telling you the truth, a grain of wheat remains no more than a single grain unless it is dropped into the ground and dies. If it does die, then it produces many grains.

Whoever loves his own life will lose it, whoever hates his own life in this world will keep it for life eternal. Whoever wants to serve me must follow me, so that my servant will be with me where I am. And my Father will honour anyone who serves me.”

Isn’t that convenient, some Greeks turn up. Why did ‘some Greeks’ want to see Jesus? But most importantly was Jesus’ response: “The Hour has now come for the Son of Man to receive great glory”.

Notice Jesus does not speak to the Greeks and yet this signals that his hour has now come. This now highlights the point when the Jewish authorities suggested Jesus will go to the Greek cities. Yes, this is exactly where Jesus will go. The Greeks have arrived to give Jesus safe passage to Greece, which is why Jesus says: The hour has now come!

Why do I think this? Besides the obvious, the Vatican in its own archives speak of the people in Jesus’ circle who went to Greece. This is separate to those who went to France, like Mary Magdalene and is why I think the authors lead us to understand Mary the sister of Martha could have been Jesus’ wife – I will have further evidence of that as well.

The other question I have asked myself is why would the bible intentionally mention the Greeks and then not expand upon it. This is especially strong by Jesus recognizing that his hour had come.

The comment about Greece is overshadowed by an even more dangerous comment, ‘if you love your life you will lose it, if you hate your life in this world you will keep it for life eternal!’ This is a strong message promoting ‘you must not love your life and you must hate it’. Is this a good message? No. This is a destructive message! This is Jesus’ dangerous message to humanity that has caused many people to give up their lives.

I want you to remain on the point of the Greeks and I will add further archived information regarding this subject after the ‘Ah ha’ moment in the gospel of John. That is John the Baptist who is supposedly already dead and yet there are gospels in his name through to the arrest, death and supposed resurrection of Jesus. Keep in mind the gospel/book of John in the New Testament commences with the story of John the Baptist and yet the story continues well beyond his death, as though it was his written words.

I could add many theories or scenarios to the reasoning that a person, who incidentally was related to Jesus and their mothers having a documented conversation in the bible, could possibly have a gospel after they died early in the story.

My most favoured theories are the authors wanted us to understand the whole incident as 1) Fiction or 2) A Premeditated Plan – I think it was for both.

Jesus and Lazarus

2 Jul

When you take a closer look at the scriptures you start to realize how much Jesus and Lazarus are together. There are parts written in the gospels which ironically are overlooked either on purpose or because it is not noticed.

    

Jn: A large number of people heard that Jesus was in Bethany, so they went there, not only because of Jesus, but also to see Lazarus, whom Jesus had raised from death. So the chief priests made plans to kill Lazarus too, because on his account many Jews were rejecting them and believing in Jesus.

 

This is an interesting part because not only were the chief priests after Jesus, they also wanted to kill Lazarus too! Therefore Judas doesn’t need to betray Jesus; the chief priests were already after both Jesus and Lazarus. Why would they waste money paying Judas? In my thoughts the chief priests knew what this pair was up to and at the same time were very aware of the upheaval of the unlearned and outcast’s also causing trouble.

 

Matt: Then one of the twelve disciples, the one named Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests and asked “what will you give me if I betray Jesus to you?” They counted out thirty silver coins and gave them to him. From then on Judas was looking for a good chance to hand Jesus over to them.

 

In the previous verses the High Priest does not want to do anything during the festival because it would cause a riot. It is Judas who pursues this with Jesus’ knowledge as the timing is important to Jesus. This part is to add a bit of drama to show cause for Judas to have an excuse to pretend to commit suicide. It does add a nice touch because I will again mention that there are Judas Gospels which reflect he must have lived after the supposed death and resurrection of Jesus.

 

The authors have placed Lazarus in an obvious position and not only because the authorities were after him as much as Jesus but to show how this entwines into the story.

 

There is no doubt Jesus and Lazarus worked together, first Lazarus supposedly died and then resurrects. Then it was Jesus who supposedly died next and resurrects. It would seem Lazarus has taken over where John the Baptist left off. The authors killed off John the Baptist earlier in the story when he was beheaded at the commencement of the Jesus ministries.

 

It has been suggested that Jesus and Lazarus were lovers. I concur; in fact I uncovered that possibility many years ago when I first commenced my own search of the bible. The evidence of them coming together in the scriptures and being wanted by the authorities place them in suspicion.

The dinner in the Gospel of John

30 Jun

This story of John is similar to Matthew except it is six days before the Passover instead of two days. The connection will become clear in this instance and the connection will again be made clear when I near the end of the resurrection story. In the meantime, you will notice a few familiar names keep popping up. And of course Mary is applying the pure nard. This story in John two days before the Passover and Matthew six days before the Passover become a key rhythm which will match further accounts.

 

John: Six days before the Passover, Jesus went to Bethany, the home of Lazarus, the man he had raised from death. They prepared a dinner for him there, which Martha helped serve. Lazarus was one of those who were sitting at the table with Jesus. Then Mary took a whole pint of a very expensive perfume made of pure nard, poured it on Jesus’ feet, and wiped them with her hair. The sweet smell of the perfume filled the whole house.

One of Jesus’ disciples, Judas Iscariot, the one who was going to betray him, said, “Why wasn’t this perfume sold for three hundred silver coins and the money given to the poor?” He said this, not because he cared about the poor, but because he was a thief, He carried the money bag and would help himself from it. But Jesus said; “Leave her alone, let her keep what she has for the day of my burial. You will always have poor people with you, but you will not always have me.”

 

In Matthew and Mark this occurred in Simon’s house. In Luke this occurred in Simon the Pharisee’s house and in this gospel of John it is now in Jesus’ friend’s home Lazarus, the one he raised from death. Martha served while Mary poured the expensive perfume made of pure nard on Jesus’ feet in preparation for his burial.

 

This time Judas Iscariot is present, the one who will betray Jesus, but when Judas is paid for betraying Jesus, (Matthew 26/14-16) he is only paid thirty silver coins, much less than the price of the perfume, which was worth three hundred silver coins. It must be obvious for perfume to be worth three hundred silver coins that this was much more than perfume as we understand, but perhaps a preparation for death simulation.

 

Remember at this moment, it was not certain Jesus would die on the cross or otherwise. Jesus was not officially sentenced to death by the authorities at this point. So therefore, prophecy aside, why would Mary be applying any perfume or solution on Jesus? The only reason why Mary would be applying the solution was because Jesus was intentionally preparing to make a grandiose performance. In other words he was preparing to stage a simulated death.

Preparation for burial on a live person seems difficult to comprehend. If people during that time were hauled off and crucified, I would doubt time would allow for this preparation. Even a person who takes ill, I find it difficult to believe, people would go to such extremes. A person who is dead, yes, then preparation with a solution would seem plausible. The scripture does identify the remainder of the mixture was for the day of Jesus’ burial. Therefore this perfumed mixture contained important ingredients.  

 

Again, Jesus tells Judas Iscariot to let her keep what she has for the day of his burial. Since Jesus’ death is already planned, in full focus with Judas, then how is it Judas betrays Jesus and this is all before the last supper?

 

Judas does not betray. Jesus, Judas, Lazarus, Martha, Mary, Simon/Peter and Thomas (known as the twin) and brother’s James and John (from the mountain) – plan! Out of that list five of them are disciples and three of them appear to be family or very close friends (although his disciples were also family members).

 

As a footnote, it is preached how Jesus had attention for the poor and yet Jesus makes a mock statement and brushes it off to Judas who suggests the money should be given to poor rather than used on Jesus. I just thought I would mention that.

Jesus’ Plan begins to Unfold

29 Jun

In preparation for the arrest the authors have included many curious points which I have not overlooked. The story regarding Lazarus, in my opinion, was outright obvious and yet it will connect through Mary his sister in the coming scripts. The coming points become important toward the ‘ah ha’ moment which I will unlock from the book of John after the supposed resurrection of Jesus.

 

I ask you to keep a keen eye to the details as I retell them and then add my comprehension to those details. This information is spread like salt and pepper across the gospels. I welcome you to follow the same information from your own bible, mine is an older Christian version. I have also cross referenced The Holy Bible used by the Catholics and the stories remain (although slightly worded differently) the same.

Matt: When Jesus had finished teaching all these things, he said to his disciples, in two days, as you know, it will be the Passover Festival, and the Son of Man will be handed over to be crucified. Then the chief priests and the elders met together in the palace of Caiaphas, the High Priest, and made plans to arrest Jesus secretly and put him to death. “We must not do it during the festival,” they said, “or the people will riot.”

 

Jesus had already angered the authorities when he went to the temple and upturned the seller’s tables, displaying the force of his rebellion. Jesus wants to be arrested at the festival because this is his plan. The verse above shows the High Priest does not want this during the festival because of the riots it will cause. But Jesus ensures that is exactly when it must happen.

 

Matt: Jesus was in Bethany at the house of Simon, a man who had suffered from dreaded skin disease. While Jesus was eating, a woman came to him with an alabaster jar filled with expensive perfume, which she poured on his head. The disciples saw this and became angry. “Why this waste?” They asked “This perfume could have been sold for a large amount and the money given to the poor.” Jesus knew what they were saying, and so he said to them, “why are you bothering this woman? It is a fine and beautiful thing that she has done for me. You will always have poor people with you, but you will not always have me. What she did was to pour this perfume on my body to get me ready for burial. Now, I assure you that wherever this gospel is preached all over the world, what she has done will be in memory of her.”

This anonymous woman prepares Jesus for burial in Simon’s (Simon Peter) house with a mixture which is expensive and scented. The action of applying a mixture for preparation of burial, involves natural herbs to prepare a body which is about to undertake a death.

 

The Old Testament identifies the aforementioned ‘mandrake’, which as stated can simulate death. This mixture of perfume on the body may have also been in preparation, not only for death, but also for the consumption of mandrake which was used in the first century. We must not ignore the many parallels to both the Old and New Testaments. The mere fact that this drug, mandrake, is mentioned by name in the bible, confirms it is known by the chosen people of God.

 

This woman without a name has already been identified in the gospel of John, as I quoted earlier. “A man named Lazarus, who lived in Bethany, became sick. Bethany was the town where Mary and her sister Martha lived. (This Mary was the one who poured the perfume on the Lord’s feet and wiped them with her hair. It was her brother Lazarus who was sick) the sisters sent Jesus a message.”

 

We know this woman is Mary, the sister of Martha and Lazarus. I have also suggested that this particular Mary (not Mary Magdalene) may possibly be Jesus’ wife and I will justify my suggestion of this detail at the crucifixion story.

Simon will later be identified with Peter and Peter as Simon, Jesus’ disciple and relative, the son of John who was related to Jesus. Jesus and John’s mothers were related and later I will go into detail about the Temple builders in the Book of Ezra.

 

Although this appears obvious the Peter and Simon Peter – it is how it is entwined in the other gospels that bring the connection to the surface. In each of the gospels evidence of trickery unfolds.
