Yeshua would have died approx 30-36 ce. Like I said before 100 ce. Many thought to have been written before 70 ce. As there is no real way to confirm
this, its kind of silly to argue numbers. The point was more they wrote them during the time of His ministry, as His disciples carried on much further
down the road. They would have definitely known more than me. Maybe your gnosis is greater. I have to rely on what is available.
I don't know about how one would talk to Yeshua without prayer. And what the heck is channel woo woo? You lost me buddy. Be careful what you open
yourself up to. Some things out there don't have your best interest at heart.
Stoning a man for not being a rabbi never happened. Stoning a man for never marrying never happened. As far as not being a traditional jew, I
definitely agree with you there. He was the Son Of G-d. What they wanted to kill Him for, was He said some very interesting things about the high
priests(pharisees) that shook the power system. Same thing would get you killed today, except substitute high priest with oil man or banker. Powerful
folks don't like to let go of that power, even if it betters humanity in general.
Someone most certainly did invent gnosticism. In fact most of this modern gnosticism tends to be a hodgepodge of many different things, but all seem
to draw heavily from Zoroastrianism. I have studied this as well. It is confusing. You can't take bits and pieces of everything into a huge collage,
decorate it with egyptian symbolism, then say "Viola" while humming buddhist chants and painting cabbala geometry and whirling like a dervish. It's
no wonder why people seem to be becoming confused. I want to clarify this is not meant to disrespect. I just don't see how that leads to anything but
confusion. Ever seem to notice that the world we live in is so full with distractions? Yeshua said it would be that way. Want to find truth but gotta
go to work. Wanna feel fulfilled but my bills are coming up. Want to love my neighbor but he keeps parking his car in my lawn. Anything but find the
truth. This seems to be more of that. I found it. It is freeing.
And finally, Peter. There is a place in the Bible where it tells the story of a sinner who begins to wash Yeshua's feet with her tears and drying
them with her hair. The men who were with Yeshua began to question His legitimacy as He was allowing a sinner to touch Him in this manner. Then He
spoke in parable, which I'm sure you know. He then said, in summation: He who is forgiven much loves much in return. Peter is an amazing example of
this. I hope I meet him one day. Clearly Yeshua's sacrifice saved me, and deserves all the praise. But what Peter did in his life glorified Him
greatly, and is deserving of respect.
