Herod financed his many building projects, not only through taxes, but also through the spice trade. Herod controlled the international trade routes for the spice trade. This trade was one of the reason Herod warred with the Nabateans and for his ties with them, as well as his penetration into Moab. He also developed specialized agriculture, growing spices, medicinal plants, and dates in the Jordan Valley. Dates provided the main sweetener of the day.

One of the things one finds is these ole Myrrh folks called the "Shining Ones" were often grouped into the Creator god theme and a new movie along this line of thought is Prometheus.

A team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.

In the world of Greek the Creator god was Prometheus, and in the world of old Hebrew the Creator god was Yahweh.

So, one has to consider if in the times of Jesus that he was a Shining One, or just someone that could well explain what they were and how all this came into being as a religion issue. Jesus and the Essene appear to have known well of the Book of Enoch, which gets into these issues for the Creator gods.

Jesus and the Essene were more interested in not keeping heaven in the skies, and interested in heaven on the Earth. Which would make it impossible for Jesus to be or become Yahweh.

Jesus didn't glow or shine, but he did know of the ways of the Myrrh for making healing miracles and of the ways of the Fertile Crescent for the Boron mineral in the foods of grape and grain.

It appears the Bible Narrative presents a bit of a problem with the many names for god. They come up with Elohim, Lord, Jehovah, Yahweh, and a lot of others. Elohim appears to refer to multiple creator gods, and the term Yahweh to one principle creater god theme.

When one gets way back in time and to the theme of the "Nephellium", the "Annunaki", we find what the old texts describe as people from Heaven that end up being people from another distant planet. Which isn't really the issue for god, but one of distant planet folks that did various things like set up the Fertile Crescent, sponsored the theme of Adam and Eve, and a sort of Creation theme--yet not. We find the term Genesis better discribes the process for evolutionary change

That makes for a serious connundrum issue, as one now has to figure out which of the terms is derived from the Annunaki theme, or if there are differences. Certainly, the Egyptian god issues do link with the theme of Annunaki issue. The ancient Sumarian texts get pretty specific on their existance, and there is about zero issue of forgery for these relics.

So, the theme of Annunaki can certain explain the issue of Elohim, or many gods, and perhaps one of these "Shining Ones" being the leader of the rest. We even can find the issue of Heaven in the sky.

But, with the Essene wanting Heaven on Earth, this tells the god of the Essene and Jesus was not the same as the issues for god from Heaven in the sky.

The facination of these old gods with things like Myrrh and the issues of Fertile Crescent connected with rivers rich in Boron minerals appears to be about benelovent issues.

Even today, this same theme is coming out in a movie, called Prometheus, that involves most of these same concepts for gods, except they have different names. It seems all these cultures around the planet Earth have this same theme as a common origin for things like Pyramids and worhip of gods.

It appears there was a time when these ancient travelers affected life on Earth and a time that they departed, and via those transitions the theme of god changes around over time.

I read somewhere that Herod the Great got controlling monopoly of (or at least taxed) all spice trades through a large area, including myrrh. So the great wealth he had to build the 3rd temple was from myrrh trade.

A lot of his money came from the balsam from Jericho.
I probably got that from Josephus.

Humans liking sap appears to be a long tradition. Humans like Cinnamon with is the bark of a tree cut off in stips and allowed to dry in the sun to make Cinnamon sticks. Cinnamon is finding good use in trimming the needs to diabetics for insulin.

Cinnamon is derived from the inner bark of Cinnamomum trees, and has a long history as a culinary and medicinal plant. Its uses in traditional medicine include the treatment of colds, congestion and diarrhea, and modern science has found that it is high in antioxidants that may help reduce the risk of chronic diseases and slow the progress of aging. More specifically, the spice appears promising in the fight against diabetes.

"Not only does cinnamon activate essential enzymes in the body thus stimulating the receptors in the cells so they will respond more efficiently to insulin, but it also inhibits the enzymes responsible for deactivating ... causing insulin resistance," writes David W Tanton in the book "Antidepressants, Antipsychotics, And Stimulants -- Dangerous Drugs on Trial."


Cinnamon has even outperformed pharmaceuticals. In a study published in the "Journal of Diabetic Medicine," participants given cinnamon supplements experienced greater improvement in blood sugar levels than participants given standard diabetes drugs.

Humans like tree sap in the form of Maple Syrup and corn sap in the form of Corn Syrup, Molassas, etc. These sugars boost serotonine in the brain. But these refined sugars have a downside that often causes the diabetes issue.

So, it isn't much of an imagination that took humans interests in the issues of Myrrh and Frankensence. Patent medicine distracts from these two these days, but they still have a good bit of useful power to heal folks at low cost. There are some of these old medicines from various plants that become the theme for the patent medicines of today, but much has been lost over the millenea.

But these days, folks are slowly learning that myrrh was rather special for Jesus works on healing folks and even for his and Lazarus survival from dire circumstances.
