TRAITOR JESUS—You may shriek in horror at such a suggestion, but that is exactly what he was and he knew it. Jesus knew that what he was preaching was treasonous as far as the Jews were concerned. And just what was Jesus teaching that veered so radically from Jewish theology? In a nutshell the Jews put God in one spot and all his creation elsewhere. God was sitting on a throne constantly watching the activities of his created children. When they were bad, God sent all sorts of torment on them. Conversely, when they were good , God showered them with blessings of all kinds but mainly lots of animals and lots of sons to tend the flocks. Jesus appeared on the scene teaching that God was in everything and that everything was in God. He taught that he and everyone and everything were mirror images of God. Recognizing the universal evil of SELFISHNESS, Jesus saw himself as the sacrificial lamb who must die in atonement for all the worlds evil. Jesus knew that his teachings would bring crucifixion. so he stayed in the shadows for most of his ministerial years. He made a desperate attempt to educate the twelve illiterate apostles to what he was saying and who God really was. It seems very doubtful that he succeeded at all. I say that because the bible we have now show very little testimony to his real teachings. However those bibles were written and rewritten dozens of times to suit the whelms of the writers. The only clear testamentary writing I can find is the Coptic Gospel of Thomas. In that writing, Jesus tells his apostles over and over and over again that he is in everything and everything is in him. He also tells them that everything is of the same substance. However in the synoptic gospels, Jesus says the same thing at the last supper. He tells them that the bread and wine they were eating and drinking were his body and blood. I submit to you that if he had a banana and a fish and some Irish whiskey, he would have told them the same thing. All of those teachings were total heresy and were considered treason. After exhausting all efforts at inculcating his apostles, he readily confronted the Jewish hierarchy in the temple which brought him to the tribunal that pronounced treason and demanded crucifixion. Golgotha was the high point along the roadway in Jerusalem and all traitors, of which there were many, were crucified there in plain sight as a reminder to would-be insurgents as to what their fate would be. Jesus had a twofold plan—to die for all iniquity, and to educate the world through the apostles about the true identity of God. He definitely succeeded in the first effort but was a total failure in the second. There may be some institutions in this world that recognize and preach the true identity of God, but I have not yet encountered any. The reason for that is plain as the nose on your face. No one before me has defined the essence of God. Without that essential definition, they know not anything about that which they preach. I have defined the essence of God thus: God is a Perfect Rational Being. That Perfect Rationality explains all and eliminates all mystery about the nature of God. It mandates the understanding that the image of God is stamped on everything; elsewise it could not exist. Jesus with his super intellect saw through that understanding—he recognized the universal evil of selfishness and recognized that, since he was the only one to see that, he was committed to paying the price. He did so willingly but with ungodly fear and trepidation. Jesus, the traitor paid the price that we may have eternal peace with God. You may find a complete accounting of this philosophy in my book Wilderness Cry, and my soon to be released book, Peace in Spirituality—both by Covenant Books. All comments welcomed.
