WAS JESUS A MYTH?

Gnostic Gospels have been withheld from Christians for centuries.

 Research has established Gnostic Gospels are a description of an Egyptian mystery school.  This was rejected by early Church fathers because Gnostics presented a very different image of Christianity, one which would not be in their best interests to support.  These early writings portray a religion with its roots in Egyptian theology.

The New Testament is based on Egyptian theology.

 The early Christian church presents the Jesus story as “right” and labeled the story in Gnostic Gospels as “wrong.”  Now there is evidence to support almost all  events in the New Testament Gospels came directly from other ancient religions. Christians created the Jesus myth by absorbing details from several pagan cults, primarily the Egyptian cult of Osiris and the Persian cult of Mithra.

Several New Testament incidents borrowed from Osiris and Mithra. 

  • The Lord’s Prayer is based on the Egyptian Hymn to Osiris-Amon, beginning “O Amon, O Amon, who are in heaven.”
  • Jesus words, “In my Father’s house there are many mansions” came from the Osirian text telling of a great number of Arits (Mansions) in the blessed land of Father Osiris.
  • The Christian cross is itself a variant of the Egyptian ankh, symbolizing “the Life to Come.”
  • Mithra was born on December 25 of a mortal virgin. His birth was attended by shepherds and Magi, who brought gifts.
  • Mithra too performed miracles such as raising the dead as well as healing the sick and blind.
  • Before returning to heaven, Mithra celebrated a Last Supper with twelve disciples.

 

The New Testament is not an accurate account of Jesus’ life and mission

  • The Gospels are not historical records– Although the Gospels seem to present an historical framework, they are not historical records, but theological writings which are based on a variety of sources and influences, including Old Testament writings, Greek Stoic philosophy and the exegetical methods of Philo.  The genre of the Gospels are myth or legendary fiction which have imposed “a fictitious historical narrative” on a “mythical cosmic savior figure” by weaving together various pseudo-historical Jesus traditions, most notably the “supernatural personage” of Paul’s epistles] and “ideas very important in Jewish wisdom literature“.
  • No independent eyewitness accounts– No independent eyewitness accounts survive, despite  the fact many authors were writing at that time. Early second-century Roman accounts contain very little evidence, and many depend on Christian sources.  The Apostle Paul never met Jesus nor heard him preach.  His philosophy was based on second-hand information obtained more than sixty years after Jesus’ death.

 

How did original Christianity develop?

 Three centuries after Jesus’ death followers had multiplied exponentially.  Christians and pagans began warring and their fight grew to such proportions it threatened to tear Rome in two.  In 325 AD Constantine decided, in part due his mother’s insistence, to unify Rome under a single religion:  Christianity.

Constantine took advantage of pagan conversions to Christianity.  By fusing pagan symbols, dates and rituals into the developing Christian tradition, he created a hybrid religion acceptable to both factions.  Pagan symbols were utilized by the fledgling Christian religion.  Egyptian sun disks became the halos of Catholic saints.  Isis holding her miraculously conceived son Horus became the blueprint for modern images of the Virgin Mary and baby Jesus.  Virtually all elements of Catholic ritual – the miter, altar, doxology (a phrase or prayer which mentions God), and communion – were absorbed directly from Egyptian and Persian mystery schools.

During Constantine’s fusion of religions, he needed to strengthen the new Christian tradition.  He held an ecumenical conference known as the Council of Nicea.  This gathering of bishops debated and voted on many aspects of Christianity:  the date of Easter, the role of bishops, administration of sacraments, and the divinity of Jesus.  This became the Nicean Creed.  Until this time, Jesus was viewed by his followers as a mortal prophet; a great and powerful man, but a man nonetheless.  Jesus’ establishment as the ‘Son of God’ was officially proposed and voted on by the Council of Nicea.  It is interesting to note it was a very close vote!

Establishing Jesus’ divinity was critical to the unification of the Roman Empire and the new Vatical power base.  By officially endorsing Jesus as the Son of God, Constantine turned him into a deity who existed beyond the scope of the human world.  This not only precluded further pagan challenges to Christianity, but now the followers of Jesus were able to redeem themselves ONLY via the established sacred channel – The Roman Catholic Church!  It was all about power.

So now I ask you—do you think was Jesus real or was he a myth?

 The Fifth Coin is fiction, but the historical background is real.  The Catholic Church has conducted a centuries old conspiracy to keep people ignorant.  The Fifth Coin is written in an action adventure format to make the content fast paced and interesting but the story it tells lays bare the deceit propagated by the Catholic Church and modern-day Jesuits.  The story is available in a Kindle format or as a paperback on Amazon.

Nothing is what it seems.
