Not to burst your fantasy-bubble or anything...but...
Actually, the name of the savior-god-man of ‘the Christians’ was a Daviddic Pretender named R. Yehoshua bar Yosef the Galilean Nazir – a
Palestinian Jew who lived somewhere between BCE 12 - 36 CE, who ‘armed his disciples with swords (see Luke 22:35-36) and was promptly executed
during the 100th anniversary of the Roman Invasion (which took place in 63 BCE under General Pompey) by the Roman Authority, technically for breach of
Lex Maiestatis and for armed sedition against the Rule of the ‘divine’ Emperor Tiberius who did not like Pretenders.
You did know, didn’t you, that the Roman Emperors after Augustus were considered gods and god-men with their own temples and priesthoods?
That some of their titles included ‘son of the gods’ and ‘high priest’. Certainly there are MANY older more ancient pagan parallels to the
Christian images of ‘Iesous’ which were shaped and formed by pagan myth-hero stories – take a close look at all the miracle myths in the
canonical (‘council approved’) Greek gospels of ‘Matthew, ‘Mark’ ‘Luke’ & ‘John’ whoever they were – the gospels circulated for
more than 100 years without titles or attributions – in other words they were designed ‘to be read in the churches’ to promote faith i.e. as
propaganda tracts, not as ‘history’ in the modern sense of the word – e.g. ‘these things were written so that you might believe that Iesous is
the Christos…’ – not exactly the phraseology of a modern historian !
In fact the canonical Greek gospels are not history at all but a form of Hellenistic-Judaeic Hagaddic Midrash used for propaganda purposes – i.e.
‘my god did THAT too…and more!’)
Here are a couple of pagan parallels that PRE-DATE R. Yeshoshua in Palestine – to the Shock & Awe of persons such as Justin Martyr who just could
not bring himself to believe that pagans could out-Christ the Christian Iesous, centuries before he even lived – the Devil must be behind all this
trickery !!!’- or so Justin naively believed...
Read all about the pagan wine-god Dionysos (who had not only a Mystery religion centuries before R. Yehoshua was even born but also his own pagan
mystery temple in 1st century CANA as it turned out, talk about your Shock and Awe !!) - Dionysious (aka the Roman Bachhus) turned water into wine at
HIS OWN wedding—with Ariadne – see the citations in Walter Otto in his Dionysos: Myth and Cult, p.98, - the story is also mentioned in Seneca's
famous play 'Oedipus' - still widely performed even to-day throughout the world.
Also we have dozens of pre-Chrsitian 'pagan' parallels which the 'Christians' had stolen (or more politely, 'adapted') from their major
competing Mystery Religion of MITHRAISM (introduced into Rome c. 79 BCE) - Roman version of the Iranian-Persian sun-god Mitra (aka Mithras) one of
whose titles was ‘Sun of Righteousness’ who was born on 25th December each year and called ‘The Mediator between Heaven and Earth’ and ‘The
Saviour of Mankind…’ among other titles.
Here is a phrase from the Eucharist of Mithras c. 79 BCE long before ‘Iesous’ was even thought of…
"And Mithras said, He who will not eat of my body and drink of my blood, so that he will be made one with me and I with him, the same shall not know
Sound familiar? No wonder our deluded Justin Martyr had to go about making all those lame excuses !!!!
Many 'pagan mystery religion' words are found attributed to Saul/Paul's letters (a man who 'historically' of course never met R. Yehoshua in the
flesh, but only in dreams and visions, a little like my cook !) who was born in TARSUS the capital of the Roman province of Cilicia (and certainly NOT
in Palestine !) - which is highly significant since Tarsian Pirates in Cilicia were the ones who brought the cult of the Iranian MITRA to Rome (where
he became MITHRAS) c. 79 CE about 100 years before Chrstianiity began to spread among the slave classes in the Roman Empire.
To-day's 'Christians' rarely know ANYTHING intelligent ref these ‘pagan myth’ parallels (there are in fact over 100 major parallels that exist
between the images used in the Graeco-Roman Mystery Religions and the miracles of the early Christian Greek gospels – google the 'Mystery Cults'
of e.g. Attis & Kubaba, Demeter & Kore (the Eleusian Mysteries), Mithras, Dionysius, Orpheus, Adonis (aka Attanuzzi the dying and rising vegetation
god aka ‘Tammuz’ of Hezekiel), Wusir-Kheru (formed between the gods Osiris & Horus into one god, aka ‘Serapis’), Herakles, Aset (Isis) &
Wusir (Osiris) and many others.
Christianity was not a new and unique Revelation but actually a midrashic Jewish adaptation of several ancient Pagan Mystery Religions wwith whom
Christianity was COMPETING in the market-place of religious ideas throughout the Roman Empire - where converts = cash offerings !!
