Jesus was offered an elixer before he was crucified, all crucifixion victims were, it eased the pain. The elixer was a canabis concoction...
GEN 1:12 And the earth brought forth GRASS, and HERB yielding seed after its KIND...AND GOD SAW IT WAS GOOD.
Does anyone think that this may mean GOD was in B.C? on the 3rd day? GRASS, HERB and KIND all slang for Pot and KIND is usually B.C.
I find this part interesting:
"The medical use of cannabis during that time is supported by archaeological records."
He said the ancient anointing oil contained high levels of cannabis extract.
"The holy anointing oil, as described in the original Hebrew version of the recipe in Exodus, contained over six pounds of keneh-bosum - a substance
identified by respected etymology, linguists anthropologists, botanists and other researchers as cannabis extracted into about six quarts of olive oil
along with a variety of other fragrant herbs."
At that time medicine and religion were tied together. Knowledge was scarce and ignorance profound. News was conducted by rumor. If a man came into
a village and used pharmaceuticals on a people who had no medical knowledge he could be performing a slight miracle. Then the news of that event
travels and becomes embelished along the way.
Also, Denis Leary said that pot leads to carpentry, and we all know Jesus was a carpenter.
Seriously though, medicine and religion in ancient times were tied together in the forms of shamans and medicine men. No doubt the current
'discovery' of cannabis' medicinal uses is actually a rediscovery of a rediscovered property of the plant. Perhaps in Jesus' time cannabis was in
another rediscovery phase and he was a proponent of its benefits. No doubt a lot of religious Christians rankle at the thought of Jesus being a
Birkenstocks-wearing long-haired hippy. Now that I think of it there do seem to be a lot of pot advocates who are long-haired peaceniks, kinda like
Christ. Hmmmm... lol
