The legend of Jesus...

The legend of Jesus...
The legend of Jesus is primarily based on two mythologies that are common in many religions.

The planting mythology based on the wheat seed. You sacrifice seed (from the father plant) and bury it in virgin mother earth, then it is reborn/resurrected to provide the bread and beer of life, year after year, forever. Jesus was a slight upgrade and incorporated (married) the grape vine. In Roman times a ‘real’ god would be upscale and drink wine not beer.

The calendar (Zodiac) mythology has a leader (the year) and twelve followers (the months). Because planting times and seasons can be predicted using a calendar, the extension was that other predictions would also be useful. Healing skill was sometimes attributed to this magic.

Jesus is clearly a composite, not a single historical person. That is, he is a blending of various leaders of diverse groups who were amalgamated into Christianity.
The following are some who may have contributed to the life story of Jesus

332 BCE Alexander the Great conquered Jerusalem. In anticipation of his arrival the Book of Daniel was written to forecast him as a successor to Cyrus.
300 BCE – 50 BCE The books of Enoch were written and used in Jewish religion.
These books offer a significant foundation for later emerging Christianity.

159 BCE-152 BCE The ‘teacher of righteousness’ was a leader of the Sadducee sect and mostly followed by the Essenes .

XXX BCE - 100 BCE, Yeishu ben Pandera, or Yeishu ha-Notzri leader of the Nozri movement was executed, stoned and his body hung on the eve of Passover. Zellots who originated or were collected by him by remained an underground militant force involved in most of the unrest in Jerusalem for the next 200 years. They considered the Herod Dynasty to be Roman puppets and fought against these rulers. Yeishu had five disciples: Mattai, Naqai, Neitzer, Buni, and Todah. Matthew and Thaddaeus became the names of two of Jesus disciples.

109 BCE – 71 BCE Spartacus & Crixus led a slaves unrest of Rome. Although Spartacus was never caught, Crixus and Six thousand followers were captured and crucified, lining the Appian Way from Capua to Rome. Crixus is the only historical crucified Christ. All following problem slaves were described as “followers of Crixus,” a veiled threat of crucification.

83 BCE – 30 BCE Mark Antony demanded the worship of Julius Caesar upon his death in 44 BCE as the new version of God in the ‘cult of the deified Emperor’ and fit him into the Isis legend. (Rulers were deified upon death, an upgrade from being a Deity during their lifetimes and getting killed by an outraged populous in the event of a natural calamity). The position of Pope comes from this cult. The success of Augustus made Julius Caesar a very popular God.
The ‘Coptic Christians’ who were traditional started by “St Mark” may have began as a split when some churches wanted to continue deification of Cleopatra’s children as gods, to continue their heritage of Egyptian leadership being gods since Ah-Menes, Pharaoh of the first Dynasty had been deified as the god Amen. Christians still end prayers by saying Amen.

XX BCE - 6 CE Yehuda of Galilee was a leader of the Zellots. He was killed in 6 CE following a revolt about the census of Quiriniusn (the census mentioned in Luke ch 2) he was deified by his followers in the same way that Julius Caesar had been, and some of his teachings and parables were enshrined in a Gospel based on his life. The deified afterlife of Yehuda of Galilee therefore also fills the time slot of the biblical Jesus. Over the next 60 years the violent Zealots and peaceful Essenes developed a working relationship where one group protected the other (Zealots protected Essenes, but hid as/with them when official force from authorities became too great). The Gospel to the Essenes (dead sea scrolls) describes the “after-life-as a deity” of Yehuda of Galilee. In it, his real life, events after he died, and the planting legend (Isis version) are mixed with parts of the books of Enoch.
XX BCE – 46 CE Theudas Leader of the Zealots, Yehuda’s successor, was executed at about 46 CE, semi-matching the traditional biblical date of Jesus death.

About 50 AD The first ecumenical council in Jerusalem was held with Apostles James, Paul & Barnabas deciding if non Jewish converts needed circumcision. This cannot be confirmed as historical. This same dispute was discussed by Jews, Bet Hillel and Bet Shammai followers, including James the Just, and may be the same conference. The result was that gentiles were able to become Jewish far easier, so a blending of Jewish and pagan practices grew.
About 50 AD – 60 AD Paul/Saul was spreading an early version of the Christian religion around Asia minor. Only about half of his letters were written by the same person. He cannot be verified as a historical person, although he is claimed to have done almost exactly what Simon the Sorcerer is confirmed to have done.

About 50 AD – 100 AD Simon the Sorcerer, Simon the Magician, Simon Magus tried unsuccessfully to purchase a priesthood in various religions, then bought a female slave and passed her off as the reincarnated Helen of Troy & Sophia the personification of wisdom. He is credited with starting churches and promoting Gnostic beliefs to Samaritan converts. He blended some Essene Jesus teachings into his religion, and is the most probable origin of the parable of the Good Samaritan.

XX AD – 64 AD James the Just, son of Alphaeus Clopas or Halpai (depending on source), brother of Jesus, was associated with the early church and also with the Nazirite sect. James was stoned by Sicarii after being condemned to death by High Priest Ananus ben Ananus. King Agrippa replaced Ananus with Jesus, the son of Damneus, who was also most probably the brother of James the Just. The Aramaic language does not distinguish brothers from cousins.

64 AD Nero watched Rome burn and traditionally blamed Christians, but these were probably slave followers of Crixus.
Rome now demanded adherence to the official religion (cult of the Deified Emperor & affiliates). Those opposed to Rome began joining one or more of the unofficial groups. Persons holding membership in several churches was more and more common.

66 CE, the beginning of the First Jewish-Roman War (instigated by the Zealots, Sicarii, Essenes, and assorted other splinter groups)
70 CE the fall of Jerusalem. Jesus birth was back dated 70 years from this date to agree with the predictions of Daniel.
73 CE the fall of Masada. Rebel groups needed to reinvent themselves in a new format, some were made slaves and called ‘followers of Crixus’ by their Roman owners.

About 80 CE A refugee from the Jewish-Roman war named John went to the Island of Patmos (noted for magic mushrooms) and wrote the psychedelic book of Revelations where an alternate reality story guesses what might have happened if Egypt and Mesopotamia had joined in the Jewish uprising.

75 CE – 250 CE Essene groups re-wrote the Gospel to the Essenes without reference to previous belief systems other than those held by the only surviving Jewish sect, the Pharisees. This resulted in the Q document that more closely parallels other ‘Saviour deities’ from other religions but eliminated reference to the sources. Later writers who wrote gospels would often use material from this Q document as a basis for their stories. About 20 gospels were written, most with claims of authorship by persons in Christian mythology. Four were eventually accepted as cannon.

272 CE – 337 CE Emperor Constantine reunited Rome under a single leader while using a cross symbol as a troop identifier (so his fighters would not accidentally kill each other). He began religious liberty and let various religious sects worship. After his victory in 312, many religious groups including several sects of Christians claimed the cross as their symbol. His mother Helena was a Christian, and venerated Christian shrines.

In 325 Constantine held a conference to demand the various “Christian” groups settle on a name and belief adherence to end infighting amongst his supporters. We see teachings from groups as diverse as Cybele cultists (where one needed to cut off their testicles) to Arianism from the Coptic version which understood Jesus Christ was a man before being deified. The result was a united group, the “Roman Catholic Church” that took over Rome on Constantine’s death, and the rest as we know, is history.
