Gentile Bishops—Early Christian Spin Doctors!

with 2 comments

Christianity would certainly have been stillborn if the gentile Christians of the Roman empire had told the truth that Jesus was a rebel. The synoptic gospels depend upon Mark which was the earliest one, written around the time of the Jewish War and the fall of Jerusalem, when Jewish rebels were particularly disliked by Romans. The bishops could hardly write gospels admitting the truth about their God being an earlier Jewish rebel, and yet they could hardly ignore the truth either because plenty of the Jews who left Judea after the Jews’ defeat spread into the wider empire telling the truth about the Christian “Lord”. Some bishop commissioned Mark to refute the true stories being spread by Jews. The essence of their narrative had to be accepted but the explanations were distorted.

Do Christians know what the name Barabbas means? It means the Son of the Father. Who is that other than Jesus himself? Jesus always spoke of his Father in heaven, and is supposed to have outraged Pharisees by so doing, an unlikely allegation. Barabbas is Jesus and the story of the exchange of prisoners was one of the facts invented by the Christians who commissioned Mark to negate the truth that the Jews actually were supporting Jesus! All scholars agree that the supposed exchange is without precedent, makes no sense, and would have left Pilate open to the charge of treachery, if true. Pilate is known from independent sources to have been a monster, but the gospels so nearly make him a Christian because of his sensitive treatment of Jesus that the Coptic Church made him a saint.

The gospels stories, and indeed all the bible, has to be put into their historical context to be properly understood. More…

  2. If they did that to the man whom they consider the Son of God, we can have little assurance that they will be of any help to ordinary people. Capitalists and clergy are out for themselves, out for self aggrandisement. Why then do so many ordinary people think well of them? The world would be better off without both castes. That is the point of much ofthe argument on these pages.
