Jesus was born in Bethlehem, Palestine, a country where Palestinians have names: Mohamed, Abdel, Mounir, Aziz, Ahmed, Farid, Omar, Yusuf, Mouloud, Mokhtar, Abdallah, Abdul, etc.
To find the followers, He went to Jerusalem, Izrael, a country where Jews have names: Aaron, Shlomo, Shimon, Yoel, Noam, Nathan, Menahem, Yitzhak, Benyamin, Yigal, etc.
Jesus found 12 persons for His Last Supper with neither Palestinian nor Jewish American names: Peter, Paul, James, John, Thomas, Luke, Matthew, Andrew, Philip, Simon, Bartholomew, and one local name Judas.
Jesus turned water into wine. All guests became His Apostles (followers) after tasting this soft drink.
Judas pretended not to like the taste, kissed Jesus, and reported by His order the miracle of “the fake wine” soft drink to the Sinedrion Jewish authorities. They rewarded Judas with 30 silver coins and sent in a Roman patrol that conducted Jesus to Sinedrion for a hearing. After the hearing, Sinedrion sent Jesus to Pilate i.e. governor from the Roman Empire that occupied Izrael, to punish Jesus for a non-licensed activity. Pilate fined Jesus for a misdemeanor by 39 lashes and sent Jesus to the local ruler-king Herod. Hard liquors alcoholic Herod refused to taste the “fake wine” and sent Jesus back to Pilate, asking to raise the punishment to the top level.
The overwhelming population of the hard drinkers in public not only supported but insisted on the ultimate punishment and threatened to complain to Emperor Tiberius. Governor Pilate caring for the public order in the Roman colony Izrael and afraid of the demotion, had to comply, washed his hands, and ordered the Crucifixion of Jesus.
The introduction of the new ideology under the guise of promoting a non-alcoholic soft drink turned into a record-breaking promotion event that ended dramatically both for Jesus and Judas. The “fake wine” soft drink promotion became a long-term success we still admire!
The consensual world history is a finely-woven magic fabric of intricate lies about events predating the sixteenth century we are happy to live with. There is not a single piece of evidence that can be irrefutably and independently dated earlier than the eleventh century. Radiocarbon and dendrochronological dating are manipulated by mainstream historians. The Antiquity and subsequent Dark Ages fables were created by the concerted effort of the aristocracy, clergy, and humanists in the XV-XVII centuries. Time to face the realities?
If we are not able to ask skeptical questions, to interrogate those who tell us that something is true, to be skeptical of those in authority, then, we are up for grabs for the next charlatan (political or religious) who comes rambling along. Dr. Carl Sagan
