Recently I learned the Arameic language and read more about the first people who used the first alphabet, their history and their culture, they were
the Phoenicians. So I’ve been doing a lot of reading of books written in this language mainly within the Maronite Library of Beirut since I still
have one year left on my work contract based in Lebanon and I’m a foreigner here. These books are of great Historic value and commoners like me are
not allowed to take them out of the Library, so most of my readings were done after work in this location under the supervision of their priests on
rotation turns. Lebanon is a country recently divided between 18 different sects of Christians & Muslims, yet so rich in culture and historical
achievements (since the days of the Phoenicians), it’s beautiful to live in. Lebanon doesn’t look at all like the western Medias advertise it,
it’s more optimistic/advanced & cultural. It is also fundamental to know that this piece of land has always been the first & last boundaries between
major civilizations & religions, yet it survived with its diversity & through its monasteries and its hospitality for most cultures.
Going back to my subject, I lately read a book written by the Maronite monk “Estefanos Sarkis el Khoury” , written by him in the year 827-828 AD
in the midst of Islamic conquest of the Near-East and during times of persecution where the Maronites Monks of Lebanon use to live hiding in the
grottos of the Lebanese Mountains.
So regardless of my personal opinion and regardless of the church opinion, this is the brief summary of the book (in bullet-points), and your opinions
are the ones that matter:
• The Bible (Torah) was written in Byblos (Byblos=Bible=Book in Phoenician), the oldest port-city in the world from the first alphabet was spread to
the world from this Phoenician city through one of its best mariners & teachers Cadmus from Byblos.
• Moses was a conqueror and invaded the Phoenician lands of Canaan.
• He took the Bible from Byblos & modified it to suit him better to control his people.
• Through this Bible, the Jews got to know about God.
• But the Bible isn’t a reliable historical book and was further modified under Jewish scribes.
• The Jews were Pagans and worshipped statues as gods and one of the historical proofs in the Golden Bull Statue that they made and worshipped
before Moses destroyed it.
• Before Moses came, they didn’t know about god.
• Historical people who spoke about one God were 2 Phoenicians wise men who lived in solitude most of the time and wrote important amount of the
original Bible from Byblos. They were: Zeinoun from Tyr (Sour in modern Arabic, he established in Cyprus his first philosophical academy during the
days where Cyprus was a pure Phoenician colony where Greeks used to visit for commerce. He then went to Greece and established more academies where
famous philosophers learned knowledge and writing. The Phoenician alphabet was transformed to Greek to suit the language better.) And Melchizedek was
the other person, it is said that he was a mentor of the young Jesus.
• Zeinoun became a major Greek philosopher, and he became known as Zeno of Citium
The book claims Jesus was Athenian by Nationality and a student to Zeno’s teachings through Melchizedek
• It claims Jesus wasn’t a Jew and that the Jews at that time wouldn’t crucify one of them.
• Jesus’s open doctrines and simple ways of life generated from his Greek open minded background where no Jew would’ve accepted to live the
same. Same as john the Baptist who lived the same way and spoke with the same methods.
• During history the Bible was modified by Jews and then adopted by the Church. The book asks why? Why the they both adopted that Jesus was a Jew
and a son of David?
• The author claims that Jesus spoke Greek & Aramaic (mainly Phoenician) before learning Hebrew and starting to preach at the age of 30. It took him
some time. Some 30y of obscure dwellings.
• Phoenicians reached south America, they establishes colonies all over the Mediterranean (Sicily, Malta, Carthage, Carthago-Nova (Modern
Catalunia), Cyprus, Corsica, Marseilles, etc…) The author mention these with some details & asks himself why modern Bible followers want these facts
• He laments the Phoenicians who gave the Alphabet & Jesus to the world, and asks himself who is behind hiding all the secrets & truth of History.
• And he concludes his book linking an old Phoenician prophecy about the resurrecting phoenix to the resurrection of Jesus.
It’s somehow weird when modern Historians speak of History, sometimes they jump the whole 4000y of Phoenician history and replace it with a Jewish
one, or any different one (Persian, Greek, Egyptian…)
When I think of the year this book was written by the monk, I can’t help but think that this guy was a real father of conspiracies a great ATS
I didn’t input my personal opinion as I prefer saving it to myself, but what do you think about that?
