GREAT THEOSOPHISTS

APOLLONIUS OF TYANA

THE great Theosophist of the first century B.C. was Jesus the Christ. The great Theosophist of the first century A.D. was Apollonius of Tyana. The lives of these two men are marked by striking similarities and by equally striking differences. The similarities are found in their aim, purpose and teaching, and are explained by the fact that both were members of that great Fraternity of Perfected Men who stand behind the Theosophical Movement. The differences are found in their personal lives and in the way they presented their philosophy.

LOL...No takers on this one? Maybe little too deep?

More information in the Wiki article.

Interesting stuff. There were, however, hundreds of self-proclaimed Messiahs around that time. Jesus was one, and Apollonius of Tyana was another. Jesus just was the most popular.

The charismatic teacher and miracle worker Apollonius lived in the first century AD. He was born in Tyana and may have belonged to a branch of ancient philosophy called neo-Pythagoreanism. He received divine honors in the third century. Although the Athenian sophist (professional orator) Philostratus wrote a lengthy Life of Apollonius, hardly anything about the sage is certain. However, there are several bits and pieces of information that may help us reconstruct something of the life of this man, who was and is frequently compared to the Jewish sage and miracle worker Jesus of Nazareth.

You can find some of these self-proclaimed messiahs here on ATS too.

I don't think so.

If you really want a historical character who parallels the life of the biblical Jesus, you need look no further than Jesus of Gamala - as mentioned by the Talmud and Josephus Flavius.

Jesus of Gamala was:

Named Jesus.
A priest.
A leader of fishermen (the Fisher of Men).
Born in about AD 4ish, in eastern Judaea.
Linked to Persia (hence the Persian Magi).
Had a house in Galilee.
Linked to Gamaliel, the Jewish leader who protected the biblical Jesus and his followers (note same name).
Followers were armed. (see Luke 22:36)
Was involved in a rebellion against the Roman and Jewish authorities.
Led an attack from the Mount of Olives. (when biblical Jesus was captured)
Was probably crucified (not named, but 3 leaders of rebellion were crucified)
One of these leaders survived crucifixion, while the other two died.


The interesting thing is that if the biblical Jesus was actually Jesus of Gamala, we have a complete history of his life and deeds. The only differences with the biblical accounts are that this Jesus was:


Rich. (the Talmud confirms this)
An exiled royal (hence Herod was afraid of him).
His 'house' was a palace.
His rebellion was very much an armed rebellion.
Many of his deeds occurred later than traditionally accepted.


This new history of the New Testament explains everything about the new Christian sect, and the story we are usually peddled.

No further comments? I thought this thread had great potential.
