From Jesus’ Diary

One day, Jesus sat amidst people who listened to his words with amazement. He said:

 "Seek not the Law in your scriptures, for the Law is life, whereas the scripture is dead. The Law is the living word of the living God to living prophets for living men. In everything that is life, is the Law written. You find it in the grass, in the trees, in the river, in the mountain, in the birds of heaven, in the fishes of the sea, but seek it chiefly in yourselves. God did not write the Law in books, but in your heart and in your spirit. "

-- From the Gospel of the Essenes

Religion should be the ultimate testimony of truth whenever a society is built on some deliberate authoritative lies. This poem was written after extensive research* with an open mind to realize who Jesus really was which Bible and Vatican have no intention to clear! Kolki)

 

My name is Jesus! Yeshua of Nazareth -

Eesa, St. Issa, Apollonius, Budasaf, Yus Asaf!

I was born in ancient Palestinian City Bethlehem

A true Semite uncircumcised not sent from Heaven!

No one told me the exact date -

But close to King Herod’s end (5 or 6 B.C)

Certainly not the day you celebrate!

 

I realised in childhood -

God can’t be violent only for good

Can’t protect some while destroy others

Must be ‘loving and caring’ to all in universe!

 

Uncle visited Jerusalem when I was a teen

Bringing Buddha’s message to end all sufferings

Spreading throughout east and far-east -

Embracing people beyond status and belief!

Mystified, curious, of India then ‘Bharat’,

My maiden voyage followed ‘silk road’ en route!

 

Enchanted with eastern beauty, healing, hospitality,

Enlightened seeing peace achieved in universality

Returned with joy to the valley –

Addressed my people oppressed, divided, inwardly -

Spoke for freedom we gain in love and mercy!

 

Preached against violence, anarchy and bigotry

How to live together as God’s one big family

Ignoring threats from heinous authority -

Carried out fasting for vision of blissful humanity!

 

Didn’t want to die for Adam’s sin voluntarily -

Rather wanted to live in peace having family!

Unaware how mean-violent head priest could be -

Pronounced God’s name knowing its sin and blasphemy!

No matter how ‘New Testament’ spices it wasn’t easy-

Carrying heavy cross on the top of the valley

Specially knowing it was meant for nailing me!

 

Tired, frightened, thirsty, running high fever

All I needed a bed, bread and drink from mother!

Instead received from some Jewish-Roman brothers -

Endless brutality, cruelty, one after another!

 

Knowing I taught against crusade -

They made cross holly after my death!

I spoke for freedom under God almighty

They censored Gospels strengthening their authority!

Rewrote scriptures claiming ‘The Son of God’

Paid for all human sins dieing on cross

Fulfilling prophecy as Bible taught! 

 

Travelled a lot, surviving from cross

True Gospel my message and healing abroad!

In Syria, Turkey, Iran, India, Tibet -

Found respect, home, disciples among good friends!

Discovered in Kashmir lost Aramaic tribes –

Lived a long healthy life among peaceful followers

Finally rested in SrinagarThe Heaven on Earth’!

 

Scriptures sent me to Heaven after resurrection

Placing me on Father’s right hand+, like a lazy son

But my soul still hovers around earthly affection!

Whispers my message, can’t be in sight –

Lest they label and kill this time as ‘anti Christ’!

[Note: What Bible never addressed that many of the ancient texts (beginning 330 B.C.) in Syria, Palestine, Babylon, Egypt and Persia were the documentation of Alexandrian invasions, occupations, related killings, annihilations, repopulation and migrations, and remodelling of the societies injecting Macedonians as the rulers affecting the concept of native Gods and Goddesses with the Grecian Gods and Goddesses – and especially the fact that Alexander himself declared him as God of Egypt and Persia, as the ‘Son of Man’.  Kolki]

 

Yeshua of Nazareth’ never claimed him as the only “Son of God” as obvious from:

[Jesus - “I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.”  (John 20:17 RSV 1952)

 

+ But, Son of Zeus (Alexander) certainly sitting in his Right Hand [Fig.] who Himself claimed him as “The Son of Man” rather “Son of God”:

 

Parallels between Jesus and Horus, an Egyptian God : (Courtesy: http://www.foroswebgratis.com/tema-parallels_between_jesus_and_horus_an_egyptian_god-43548-550218.htm)

Quotations:

bullet

"The Christian myths were first related of Horus or Osiris, who was the embodiment of divine goodness, wisdom, truth and purity...This was the greatest hero that ever lived in the mind of man -- not in the flesh -- the only hero to whom the miracles were natural because he was not human." 1

bullet

"...I am the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt, and thou shalt know no god but me: for there is no saviour beside me." Hosea 13:4, King James Version. This passage may have an additional and completely different meaning from that usually assigned.

Background:

About Yeshua of Nazareth: He is commonly referred to as Jesus Christ, although Joshua would be a more accurate translation of his first name. "Christ" is not his last name; it is simply the Greek word for "Messiah," or "anointed one." Theologians have discovered about 50 gospels which were widely used by Jewish, Pauline and Gnostic groups within the early Christian movement. Only four of these were chosen by the surviving group, Pauline Christianity, and were included in the Bible. Those four Gospels describe Jesus as a Jew who was born to a virgin in Palestine circa 4 to 7 BCE. He is portrayed as a rabbi, teacher, healer, exorcist, magician, prophet, and religious leader who had a one year (according to Mark, Matthew and Luke) or a three year (according to John) ministry in Palestine, starting when he was about 30 years old. Most Christians believe that he was executed by the Roman occupying army, visited the underworld, was resurrected, spent 40 days with his disciples, and then ascended to heaven. Most Christian denominations view Jesus as God, and as the Son of God, the second person in the Trinity.

Conservative Christians view the Gospels as being inerrant whose authors were inspired by God. The Gospels and other passages in the Bible are mostly interpreted literally. Muslims revere Jesus as a great prophet -- next only to Muhammad in importance. They regard the assertion that Jesus is God to be blasphemy.

About Horus: Various ancient Egyptian statues and writings tell of Horus, (pronounced "hohr'-uhs;"
a.k.a. Harseisis, Heru-sa-Aset (Horus, son of Isis), Heru-ur (Horus the elder), Hr, and Hrw), a creator sky God. He was worshipped thousands of years before the first century CE -- the time when Jesus was ministering in Palestine. 2 Horus was often represented as a stylized eye symbol, symbolizing the eye of a falcon. He was also presented "in the shape of a sparrow hawk or as a man [or lion] with a hawk's head." 3 He is often shown as an infant cradled by his mother Isis. He was considered to be the son of two major Egyptian deities: the God Osirus and the Goddess Isis. In adulthood, he avenged his father's murder, and became recognized as the God of civil order and justice. Each of the Egyptian pharaohs was believed to be the living embodiment -- an incarnation -- of Horus. 4

   Isis with Horus 5         Horus 5       

"A list of the names of all the gods of Egypt would fill pages. But all these gods were only forms, attributes or phases of Ra, the solar god, who himself was the supreme symbol or metaphor for God....Horus, the son of Osirus and Isis, is himself an aspect of Ra." 6

[NOTE: Alexander the Conqueror invaded Egypt in 331 BC. Early in the year 331, Alexander sailed down the Nile, and he found a place he thought perfect for a city. There he founded Alexandria, soon to be Egypt's new capital - a city that would be populated by people from neighbouring villages and towns and by Macedonian, Greek and Balkan veterans from Alexander's army.

At Siwah, Alexander was welcomed by the local high priest as a great conqueror and as the son of Amon-Ra. Alexander welcomed this proclamation of his divinity. It was Macedonian and Greek tradition that a hero might be the son of a god and yet human.]

Life events shared by Horus and Jesus (Notice that both names are Greek sounding)

Stories from the life of Horus had been circulating for centuries before Jesus birth++ (circa 4 to 7 BCE). If any copying occurred by the writers of the Egyptian or Christian religions, it was the followers of Jesus who incorporated into his biography the myths and legends of Horus, not vice-versa.

Author and theologian Tom Harpur studied the works of three authors who have written about ancient Egyptian religion: Godfrey Higgins (1771-1834), Gerald Massey (1828-1907) and Alvin Boyd Kuhn (1880-1963). Harpur incorporated some of their findings into his book "Pagan Christ." He argued that all of the essential ideas of both Judaism and Christianity came primarily from Egyptian religion.

"[Author Gerald] Massey discovered nearly two hundred instances of immediate correspondence between the mythical Egyptian material and the allegedly historical Christian writings about Jesus. Horus indeed was the archetypal Pagan Christ." 7

++ John MacArthur summarizes versions of the virgin birth:

".... the Romans believed that Zeus impregnated Semele without contact and that she conceived Dionysus, lord of the earth. The Babylonians believed that Tammuz...was conceived in the priestess Semiramis by a sunbeam. In an ancient Sumerian/Accadian story inscribed on a wall, Tukulti II (890-884 BC) told how the gods created him in the womb of his mother.... At the conception of Buddha, his mother supposedly saw a great white elephant enter her belly. Hinduism has claimed that the divine Vishnu, after reincarnation as a fish, tortoise, boar, and lion, descended into the womb of Devaki and was born as her son Krishna.… There is even a legend that Alexander the Great was virgin born by the power of Zeus..." (MacArthur, John, Matthew, Vol. 1, p. 12).

Origin of Lazarus' name in the Gospel of John:

 

Asar was an alternative name for Osirus, Horus' father, who Horus raised from the dead. He was referred to as "the Asar," as a sign of respect. Translated into Hebrew, this is "El-Asar." The Romans added the prefix "us" to indicate a male name, producing "Elasarus." Over time, the "E" was dropped and "s" became "z," producing "Lazarus." 10

Reactions of Egyptologists:

Ward Gasque, a volunteer book reviewer for Amazon.com surveyed twenty contemporary Egyptologists. He asked them about the origins of Jesus' name, the relationship between Horus and Jesus, whether both experienced a virgin birth, and whether the Egyptian religion considered Hourus to be an incarnation of God.

Ten responded, They agreed:

bullet

Jesus' name is a Greek form of a very common Semitic name Jeshu'a, which is normally translated into English as Joshua.

bullet

There is no evidence that Horus was born of a virgin, that he had twelve disciples, or that he was considered incarnation of God. 2
