I agree with the last part. My new opinion is that John the Baptist could have been the first born of Mary. Maybe John was supposed to be the messiah
when he was born, but something came up in order to push him out of the limelight.
John is depicted as having feminine qualities by Da Vinci and there is speculation that Da Vinci was gay himself. With his painting of John the
Baptist, he gave him a very similar face to Mona Lisa.
Since Mona Lisa is speculated to be a self-portrait of Da Vinci and he was speculated as being gay, him putting his face on John the Baptist could
imply that he also was gay, which would explain the feminine qualities he gave him. It would also explain why you think Jesus was an impostor of John,
because they removed John from the story and replaced him with his younger brother Jesus because he was gay.
Also, Jesus is stated as having four brothers and sisters, though the sisters are never named. One of the brothers names is James the Just, who was
also an apostle to Jesus. There was another man named James, James the Great, who was the brother of another apostle named John, or St. John, the same
one located to the left of Jesus in The Last Supper.
What if St. John the brother of James is actually John the Baptist, and since Jesus has a brother named James who was an apostle, maybe both James are
a reference to the same person and they are both Jesus' brother.
If James is Jesus' brother and James is listed as being the brother of John, that would mean that John is also the brother of Jesus. The unnamed
sisters could be a jab at Johns feminism, and they didn't name them because John is the unsung brother of Jesus, Mary's firstborn.
I know it's a bit convoluted, hopefully you will be able to follow it.
I may be stretching it a bit, I dunno.
