    Religion: the Crossroads of Myth and History?

    Religious conversion of the masses went right to the top whenever their Kings and queens converted or helped formulate new religions; an example like we have talked about was Serapianism among the Ptolemies. The spread of Christianity in Europe is also an excellent example. A holy man shaking...

    Religion: the Crossroads of Myth and History?

    Herod the Great had 9 wives. One of those wives was Mariamne ("Mary") who he strategically married because she was of "Hasmonean" stock. Herod executed her because of her affair with Joseph. He also had a Samaritian wife called Doris from whom he bore Antipater (Antipater II). Antipater...

    Religion: the Crossroads of Myth and History?

    Depends on how you read Josephus. Josephus relied on multiple sources that are no longer available. For example, starting with literal assumption of "son" and "father" as, respectively, Herod's sons (Antipater?) and Herod as "father" would read like the base text of the NT were written...

    Religion: the Crossroads of Myth and History?

    What I see is parts of the original Josephus where explanations related to the "Egyptian" connection may have been excised, perhaps even by Flavianists due to their enthusiasm for Serapis (recall that Vespasian performed miracles on Serapist followers and became followers of Egyptian...

    Religion: the Crossroads of Myth and History?

    The Josippon version of Josephus has a long history starting from Yemenite Jews through Christianized Jews in South Italy. No surprise the Itlian Jews would project onto Italian history. I would stick with Levi for this stuff for starters.

    Religion: the Crossroads of Myth and History?

    Not sure about comet strike. At the scale of the universe, that would be ultra-precision. Getting back to Sumer and Nasorean liturgies (see the Ginza Rabba text), this would be certainly worth investigating. If you dig deep enough early church fathers like Eusebius picked up on text around...

    Religion: the Crossroads of Myth and History?

    A lot of time from the period of the Sumerians and Gutians to the period above. However, there may be elements of religious worship that got transmitted -- how better to remember something than have the youngers memorize what they didn't really understand from their grand parents (Dr...

    Religion: the Crossroads of Myth and History?

    The question in my mind (and it seems like yours too) is what "template" the Nasorean used. I've read of keywords like "Kittim" with experts speculating who they are. In my opinion the clock has to be pushed back way back and the reference is "Guti" from ancient Sumeria who were an outcast and...

    Religion: the Crossroads of Myth and History?

    Part of the lore of "shit that come-eth after."

    Religion: the Crossroads of Myth and History?

    Or going by same author assumption "Revelations" may have been nothing more than part of the initiation rituals of the Nasoreans (the textual limitation of translating rituals in to readable words and translations was well spoken of by Dr. Lundwall). The clock didn't move much, or not all actually.

    Religion: the Crossroads of Myth and History?

    Depends on which way you want to run the clock. Forward and take it from present tense forward, or take the clock backward. Or to paraphrase, what comes out defileth; do we want to see the beautifully laid out banquet prior to consumption or the shit that come out-eth after? The "church" may...

    Religion: the Crossroads of Myth and History?

    Also Jewish tradition at least going back to Persian exile period (see Zechariah) where "Joshua" ("Jesus") appears in Zechariah's dream for doing the sorts of things that John the Baptist was advocating in the NT. Paul could get to Jesus without ever having met him. In Acts 5v33-, the High...

    Religion: the Crossroads of Myth and History?

    This was an excellent video presentation by Dr. Lundwall. From about 39-45min he talks about "taking on the identity" practiced in myths and religion; Baptism as example. He describes the "Chrest" origin through the hieroglyphic/coptic term "Krsp" which meant "corpse" from which the word...

    Was Akhenaten Moses ... and even more?

    May be a daughter of Marcus Antonius. Assuming JC fathered Caesarion (doubtful) while he was for a short time in Egypt, he couldn't have had enough time to have another go around with Cleo. The hollywood version would have Caesar monkeying around with Cleo which is not the way it really was...

    Was Akhenaten Moses ... and even more?

    And this Paulina and Decius Mundus story is strikingly similar to the Bona Dea story (Clodius dressed up as a women to intrude into the all female Bona Dea festivities and rumor had it that he had sex with JC's wife Pompeia...) when JC was Ponitifex. This story caused a sensation in Rome and...
