I hate to break it to you, but you didn't understand the parable. In summary, Jesus was explaining how demons can't cast out demons and only something more powerful than they is able to. So, no, Jesus was explaining how he was NOT possessed by Beelzebub.
You've been miseducated. The text is as plain as day. And what follows later with the various "miracles" Jesus performs -- including raising people from the dead, which pretty much horrifies everybody, and wandering in the desert to commune with Satan -- only solidifies the fact that he was infected to the point he thought was the next Solomon (which he himself states) and sought to challenge both Jewish and Roman authorities with his ragtag army of peasants, which he basically killed John the Baptist to get.
