You might not really understand the bible. How could you in it's present paulist form? You don't know that Paulist theology contradicts the teachings and actions of life of Jesus( Yeshua)? Maybe before you start this series you might want to take a look at this site...
http://truthseekers.co.za/ "All your life you may have believed that you knew the truth, or that your church pastors / friends or family had told you the truth, but what you'll find out is that everything is not as you thought...."
The works of the man named Paul comprise the majority of the New Testament. He was a self proclaimed Apostle. He was a Roman citizen.
His “teachings” are what comprise much of the prevalent theology in Christian Churches today. Most of what is attributed to Paul is false theology and go quite contrary to the teachings, actions and words of Yeshua (Jesus, to many of you) . Paul had contempt for the Desposyni ( Heirs of the Lord) who were from the family (Mark 3;31-32,Matt 6;3)of Jesus and the rightful authoritative heirs to seat of spiritual power in Jerusalem. James(Yaakov) was the first bishop of Jerusalem. He was the brother of Jesus. He also had other siblings that included Simon, Jose and Jude . Plus some sisters (Matt 6;3).
And don’t forget all His cousins, maternal and paternal.
Jesus was not a peasant. He was not illiterate.
It was quite well known that His family was of the royal House of David. That they were of the tribe of Judah.
Even though the Roman installed Herodian’s were in power they were not accepted as rightful heirs to the throne. Most everyone knew that they were fraudulent puppets of the Romans and rightfully rejected them. Except those profiting from their position. Including the Religious authorities.
It was well known that the House of David was destined to be enthroned again . It was well known amongst religious, scholars and academics that the Royal family had been disposed, usurped by the Roman Empire and in their place were placed the frauds, the Herodians.
The Jews as well as the Romans were famous for record keeping and documentation. This is the one reason that at the time of Yeshua’s birth there was a census that was taken. This was a Roman census by decree of the Caesar.
If Jesus had been illiterate as many “Pastors” promote how is it that he was able to read from the scroll of Isaiah ? Does anyone know how technical a scroll is ?
And another thing, the synagogue and temple authorities did not allow just anyone to approach and read . The reader must be literate and learned in protocol to insure that no defilement is rendered in and of the reading.
Considering that the Jewish people were very proud of their traditions ,customs and religion of the One True God ( Ehyeh asher Ehyeh ) they would have been diligent in maintaining records and documentation. They would have definitely had known that the House of David did not just disappear after the installation of the Herodians. They knew who the House of David consisted of and they honored , protected and provided for them accordingly.
We know from scripture that three Magi came from the east to pay homage and honor to the new born KING, Yeshua . Amongst the gifts they brought were frankincense and myrrh. Highly expensive spiritual gifts designated for royalty. One of the other gifts that they presented the child King (Anointed) was gold. It was all tribute for a King.
And it was not insignificant ,token amounts. They were not symbolic. They were in significant amounts to insure the honor and welfare and tribute of this Kings establishment. For He was not an ordinary King , he was not installed by men and governments who worshipped false gods.
He was the King ,anointed by God Most High, He was the heir of Elohim Adonai. He was Adonai Shalom, Yeshua , Savior God .The One prophesied from the beginning. The One promised . And you really think that these other kings would have troubled themselves with the journey to dishonor God’s chosen by leaving a pittance?
They left a significant amount. An amount worthy of the Chosen Heir of God.
And those amongst His own people would also have insured that He was provided for.
Spiritually, Economically, Academically…everything imaginable was afforded to their King. This is why they were at war with Rome and it’s Herodian puppets.
Jesus was not a peasant or illiterate.
He was not a Nazarene born or living in Nazareth. He was a priest of the Nazarite order. He was a warrior , prophet , priest and King!
