Bible Prophecy (Truth & Deception)

Lust For Power

Matthew 15:33-38

33And his disciples say unto him, Whence should we have so much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a multitude?34And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven, and a few little fishes.35And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground.36And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave thanks, and brake them, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.37And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets full.38And they that did eat were four thousand men, beside women and children.

I am assuming this Jesus fed the multitude with meat instead of bread,

because he is now the:

Meat of Life……………………..the Fish of Life


not the Bread of LIfe!


First of all, this is eerily opposite of the broken bread  miracle that fed 5000 men earlier in this same book of Matthew and the other gospels as well, that resulted in 12 basketfuls of fragments left over. The author of the gospel af Matthew would have us believe that this turn-around of the bread miracle is now the meat miracle.

In the gospel of John, Jesus does not brake the bread…He distributes the bread, nor does he brake the meat, but distributes the meat!

Jesus said he was the Bread of Life!

John 6:5-13

5When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat?6And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do.7Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.8One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, saith unto him,9There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?10And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.

11And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.

12When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.13Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.


What concerns me about braking of the bread and meat in opposition to distributing the bread and the meat is what happens at the cross!

John 19:36

36For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled,

A bone of him shall not be broken.

I believe that is a sign for us!

At the Last Supper in the Synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark, and Luke) the Synoptic Jesus brakes the bread also.  In the Gospel of John there is no braking of bread.

The braking of bread may have more to do with tradition

than with what really happened at the Last Supper!

It is obvious that the Synoptic Gospel writers were not witnesses to the true Supper with Jesus the night before he died and have written a false account of the Last Supper in opposition to the Gospel of John! And I believe the same opposition to the feeding of the 5000 in the Gospel of John.

It is apparent that the three Synoptic Gospels are written to oppose everything written in the Gospel of John. Why? So that you won’t believe in the true Jesus and instead believe their version of Jesus even though it is obvious they were not his disciples, to cause confusion, to contradict, to mock, to steal the truth and make it a lie!

The Synoptic Gospel writers wanted their TRADITION and preferred it to

the true Messiah

because TRADITION is their bread and butter!

The Covenant with Many


In the Old Testament the Hebrews were kept alive in the desert for 40 years after their escape from the Egyptians via the parting of the Red Sea and many confrontations with the Egyptian Pharoah. Part of that time in the desert God would  rain from heaven manna for the Hebrews to collect and eat and it filled them.  It was a miracle. But God instructed them not to collect more than was needed per day because it would not last. The manna would rot. They were also instructed to collect twice as much manna on the day before the Sabbath which was the 6th day. So instead they would collect twice as much the day before the Sabbath. The extra manna collected on the 6th day would not rot which was intended to eat on the Sabbath, the 7th day, the day of rest. That was so that the Hebrews would honor the Sabbath (7th day thereby honoring the true God). Eventually some of the Hebrews started complaining (even though God had freed them from the abuse and slavery by the Egyptians)  They wanted meat, instead of manna –so God gave them meat and it was not a good result according to Numbers There is another version however in Deuteronomy, I think:

Numbers 11:31

31And there went forth a wind from the LORD, and brought quails from the sea, and let them fall by the camp, as it were a day’s journey on this side, and as it were a day’s journey on the other side, round about the camp, and as it were two cubits high upon the face of the earth.

I believe Numbers 11:31 is referring to Pentacost which is written in the book of Acts!

Numbers 11:32-34

32And the people stood up all that day, and all that night, and all the next day, and they gathered the quails: he that gathered least gathered ten homers: and they spread them all abroad for themselves round about the camp.33And while the flesh was yet between their teeth, ere it was chewed, the wrath of the LORD was kindled against the people, and the LORD smote the people with a very great plague.34And he called the name of that place Kibrothhattaavah: because there they buried the people that lusted.

I believe this is a prophetic warning for then and for the future! It has to do with the Lust For Power!

The Pope Calls For World Government With Real Teeth!

Could a “very great plague” be what is occurring in the news about Roman Catholic Abuses?

I think the reason for the manna God provided is more than just honoring the Sabbath, or feeding the Hebrews in the desert, or God’s laws, yet that is obviously detrimentally important! But this story was to warn us of the corrupted version of Jesus Christ as in the above made up miracle of the fish in the Gospel of Matthew and repeated in the synoptic gospels.

This meat miracle of the 4000 is not in the gospel of John!

And another interesting coincidence about the 4000 is in the Book of Acts :

Acts 21:37-38

37And as Paul was to be led into the castle, he said unto the chief captain, May I speak unto thee? Who said, Canst thou speak Greek?

38Art not thou that Egyptian, which before these days madest an uproar, and leddest out into the wilderness four thousand men that were murderers?

39But Paul said, I am a man which am a Jew of Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, a citizen of no mean city: and, I beseech thee, suffer me to speak unto the people.

To honor God is to honor His Son. To honor Jesus Christ is to believe in Him and His Father who He considered to be more important than Himself and to honor the laws God made for us. It isn’t just to arbitrarily obey some strange law of the Sabbath and the other 9 laws but to protect us from the evil one.

It is for our welfare that he made the Ten Commandments.

The Roman Catholic Church replaced the Sabbath with Sunday worship to honor another god – The sun god…the fish god.

The laws of God were to distinguish the one true God and the one true Son of God from another god and another sun of another god.

Jesus said that His meat was to do the will of God when He met the woman at the well in Samaria with his disciples. This is the same place that the synoptic gospels say Jesus instructed the disciples not to enter into Samaria even though He really did go with his disciples in the gospel of John.

The feeding of the 4000 men in the wilderness with meat and 7 basketfuls left over broken meat….instead of the 5000 men with the bread with the 12 basketfuls of fragments of bread is a mockery of this particular miracle and a clue as to who is the true Jesus Christ!

Another interesting piece of evidence is that if the above verses in Matthew about the meat miracle is true and the disciples had seen the bread miracle previously in chapter 14 of the gospel of Matthew where Jesus fed 5000 men why would this particular meat miracle surprise them that Jesus could do this. The disciples act totally brainless. Why do they act so bewildered if they had seen the miracle of the feeding of the 5000 men which happened in all of the gospels? It does not make sense and is obviously included to confuse and deceive!!!!!

Another fact is this miracle of the meat is not in the Gospel of John!

The synoptic gospels are rendering a false perception of the Son of God. They are offering us meat….fish…..the fish god …..a false god…..a lawless god that does not honor the 7th day (the Sabbath) as instructed by God in the Ten Commandments that being the 4th commandment which has been annihilated by Roman Catholicism and most of her daughters that go along!

The Roman Catholic church also annihilated the commandment about idolatry. I’m sure it was a business decision so that they could make lots of money selling icons, and crosses, and fish objects, statues of Mary, statues of saints which number in the thousands by now, one for everything imaginable.

Now this business conglomeration is trying to get you and I to honor the Shroud of Turin which is a linen cloth picture they claim is Jesus Christ yet they don’t even worship the true Jesus Christ, or the true God or His laws, so how would they know?

Someone has definitely tampered with scripture and mixed it up (sifted) and included a lot of lies! Why? Because of what happened in Egypt with the Hebrews and because of the true Jesus Christ overcoming the world!

These lies are retribution from total evil to confuse us (you and I)  as to who is the real Messiah, the Son of God and who God is Himself!

It is like we are dealing with an imposter of Jesus Christ in reality or in written form as to replace reality with fiction to debunk the true Jesus Christ and His Father!

Salute No Man

Luke 9:1-3

Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.2And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.3And he said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither staves, nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats apiece.

Luke 10:3-5

Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.4Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way.5And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house.

“Salute no man by the way”?  What does that mean?

I looked up “salute” in the bible online and there sure is a lot of Saluting goin’ on.

 Please click on this link:


So if they are supposed to salute no man by the way,

then why do they do so much saluting in this link?

This is absolute nonsense and deception by the way!

Does “no man” mean something else?

Who is no man?

SALUT NO MAN 2015-12-13 at 10.41.55 PM

A nomen indicates which gens a Roman belongs to. A gens is a loose collection of families sharing the same nomen. It is the middle part of the tria nomina, i.e., the three-part Roman name.

Real cute!

Funny, because in the Synoptic Gospel of Matthew, Jesus says:

Matthew 24:4
And Jesus answered and said unto them,

Take heed that no man deceive you.

Does he mean do not be deceived by any man or does he mean Let NO MAN deceive you,

or was it warning you that “no man” is deceiving you??????

That may sound crazy, but on the other hand we are talking about deception.

Luke 22:34-36

And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.35And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing?And they said, Nothing.36Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

With what?

I thought they did not have a purse, scrip, and shoes above in verses Luke 9:1-3 at the top of this page and now they are supposed to have a purse. and take it and likewise their scrip, which they didn’t have but lacked nothing, and sell the only garment they have to buy a sword.

Is this nuts, or what?

Oh yea, and salute no man by the way! Weird!


Luke 19:11-28

11And as they heard these things, he added and spake a parable, because he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear.12He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.13And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.14But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us.15And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading.16Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds.17And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.18And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds.19And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities.20And another came, saying, Lord, behold, here is thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin:21For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up that thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow.22And he saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked servant.

Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow:23Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury?

24And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and give it to him that hath ten pounds.25(And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.)26For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from him.27But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.28And when he had thus spoken, he went before, ascending up to Jerusalem.

Honestly, do you really think Jesus the Messiah would say verse 27:

27But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me


After reading these verses and the parable

I would have been a very confused disciple!



1. stern or severe in attitude or manner an austere schoolmaster

2. grave, sober, or serious an austere expression

3. self-disciplined, abstemious, or ascetic an austere life

4. severely simple or plain an austere design


Austerity programs can be controversial, as they tend to have an adverse impact on the poorest segments of the population.[citation needed] In many situations, austerity programs are implemented by countries that were previously under dictatorial regimes, leading to criticism that the citizens are forced to repay the debts of their oppressors.[6][7][8]

So basically the Synoptic Jesus

is saying that he is an oppressor!

While on the subject of austerity here are some interesting articles from Rome of all places about Austerity cuts:

Analysis: More austerity may be the last thing Italy needs

best part of the article is the comment by:

Andrew150 wrote:

“So now living within your means is austere? This is just more spendthrift tripe.
If governments had been responsible in the first place and not given away more than they have taken in the economies around the world would be healthy and hearty. What were seeing is the result of irresponsible politicians on both sides of the aisle.”

One million protest against Italy’s austerity cuts

Italian workers strike against austerity cuts

As I recall it was those union workers that stood up for the Roman Catholic Entity last year in regards to the homosexual child abuse charges against the church

and it was the Mayor of Rome Gianni Alemanno who amassed and rallied support from those union workers in Rome to save that entity.

Short romance!


Important Roman Statue Capitoline Venus Leaves Rome for Second Time Since 1797; Officially on View at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, June 8 to September 5, 2011

“Presentation of Sculpture is First Act of New Sister Cities Relationship; Mayor of Rome to Announce Dream of Rome Project….”

The Capitoline Venus

“The Capitoline Venus is a significant descendent of the first, revolutionary statue of this type, the renowned Aphrodite of Cnidos by Praxiteles. With the Cnidian Venus, Praxiteles introduced a new subject to the history of art: the large-scale, freestanding, fully nude female. This type of image became known in modern times as a “Modest Venus” (Venus pudica)

because the goddess attempts to cover her nakedness…..”


I just don’t envision in any way the true Jesus to be austere. To me He seems to be very patient and thoughtful, at least in the Gospel of John. He laid down his life for his friends and that does not sound like austerity. Nor did Jesus seem to be wishful to have his enemies slayed before him, at least not in the Gospel of John. IF he wanted to have them slayed before Him, then why didn’t he do that while he was being interrogated and beaten up. It wasn’t as if he didn’t have plenty of opportunities, but He did not do that. However, I do believe the imposter and the deceiver rendered in the gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke would slay their enemies, and I believe they did slay them.

Here is an article about slaying with another meaning, please read:

Beware Oh brother, beware don’t you listen to the words. The tender lies….

Think about this statement of the Synoptic Jesus:

Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow

So now he is not only a murdering banker,

but also a thief!

Mark 14:49-53

49I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and ye took me not: but the scriptures must be fulfilled.50And they all forsook him, and fled.51And there followed him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and the young men laid hold on him:52And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked.53And they led Jesus away to the high priest: and with him were assembled all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes.

Perhaps this young man took what Luke’s Jesus said in  Luke 9:1-3 and Luke 10: 3-5 above literally?

I really don’t think Jesus said the stuff that Luke said that he said, and nor do I think this young man followed him, etc. I think it is malicious nonsense!

IF anything can be made of these verses in Mark is that there was another that the young men followed (or laid hold of) and it is not the real Jesus!

There is something very strange about the mention of this linen cloth since it is not mentioned in any other gospel.

Why would this incident be added? IF this had happened it would be in the Gospel of John, but it isn’t. John was there! If you read the Gospel of John it is very detailed in comparison to the mish-mash of incidents, parables, healings and ramblings of the other synoptic gospels.(Matthew, Mark and Luke)

Seems to me that the linen cloth left behind may be pointing to the Shroud of Turin and these verses (Mark 14:51-52) must have been added quite a bit later on.

A cruel joke of some kind!


Something to consider very seriously:

Is the young naked man that fled and left the linen cloth the same man that is on the Shroud of Turin?

In Acts, there is a contention between Barnabus and Saul after their mystery ‘ministry’ when James (brother of John Zebedee) is murdered by Herod and Peter is imprisoned by the same and then Peter goes to “another place”  and then Herod mysteriously dies as told by Luke the writer of Acts and then Saul turns into Paul.

After these events Paul and Barnabus take John Mark with them.

I wonder if John Mark was Peter’s son? I wonder what the “another place” is referring to since the other two (possibly three) are murdered!




JOHN 21:18-19

18Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdest thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands,

and another shall gird thee,

and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.

19This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God.

And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him,

Follow me.


( I thought James was already dead – killed by Herod)





ACTS 12:7-9

7And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands.

smote past tense of smite (Verb)

1. Strike with a firm blow.
2. Defeat or conquer (a people [Peter] or land).

8And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me.9And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision.

wist= knew / be aware of

So does the above mean that Peter lied or embellished his story of his escape from prison? Or was Peter deceived as I believe he was deceived when he fell into a trance and was offered unclean animals to kill and eat in the Book of Acts.


ACTS 12:17

17But he, beckoning unto them with the hand to hold their peace, declared unto them how the Lord had brought him out of the prison. And he said, Go shew these things unto James, and to the brethren. And he departed, and went into another place.



Or is Luke lying about Peter and what Peter said about the angel telling him to GIRD THYSELF in opposition to what was written in the gospel of John at the Sea of Galilee?

Either way it is contrary to the Gospel of John….

Jesus also said (in the Gospel of John) that the PRINCE OF THIS WORLD WAS COMING AND HE HAS NOTHING IN ME.

JOHN 14:30

30Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.


I THINK HE IS TALKING ABOUT THE “THE ANOTHER” THAT WAS GOING TO GIRD PETER WHEN HE GETS OLD! Or rather the one that would write about it in opposition to the gospel of John. It is no accident that just about everything written in the Synoptic Gospels opposes and mocks the Gospel of John. So I gather that the authors of those gospels are or represent the prince of this world!

Acts 12:25

25And Barnabas and Saul returned from Jerusalem,

when they had fulfilled their ministry,

and took with them John, whose surname was Mark.



Could the deaths of these men be the ministry that is fulfilled by Barnabus and Saul?


Then because John Mark does not “work” Paul doesn’t want to include John Mark in whatever it is he considered “work” in Acts 15:36-38. Very mysterious chronology of events!

Acts 15:36-38

36And some days after Paul said unto Barnabas, Let us go again and visit our brethren in every city where we have preached the word of the LORD, and see how they do.

37And Barnabas determined to take with them John, whose surname was Mark.

38But Paul thought not good to take him with them, who departed from them from Pamphylia, and went not with them to the work.

There is a “contention” between Paul and Barnabus. THEN Barnabus takes John Mark to Sicily. That is the last we hear about John Mark! However, we do hear about a person named Mark a verse later and I assume it is the same John surnamed Mark.

Acts 15:39

39And the contention was so sharp between them, that they departed asunder one from the other: and so Barnabas took Mark, and sailed unto Cyprus;

Who was John Mark? What happened to John Mark? He seems to disappear.

Some very strange things to consider in the Synoptic gospels that seem to cradle ACTS or visa-versa.

Zechariah 11:8

8Three shepherds also I cut off in one month;

and my soul lothed them, and their soul also abhorred me.



The Book of Zechariah

There are no dates given for chapters 9-14 and Zechariah’s name does not even appear in that section. Times have changed and there is no reference made to Darius or any other king. The temple is standing, instead of waiting to be built (cf. 9:8, 11:13-14, and 14:21). As a result, many scholars suggest that chapters 9-14 of Zechariah were not written by Zechariah at all.
There is very solid evidence to support this position.

Matthew 27:9-10:Then what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet was fulfilled: “They took the thirty silver coins, the price set on him by the people of Israel, and they used them to buy the potter’s field, as the Lord commanded me.”

The problem comes in locating this prophesy, which, rather than appearing in the book of Jeremiah,

instead shows up in Zechariah 11:12-13.

Is this article suggesting that possibly Matthew or someone else wrote a part of the prophetic book of Zechariah! Or did he just misquote to mislead?

I think the author of the Gospel of Matthew did more than that!

Matthew 27:1-10

1When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death:

2And when they had bound him, they led him away, and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor.

3Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,

4Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that.

5And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.

6And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood.

7And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter’s field, to bury strangers in.

8Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, unto this day.

9Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value;

10And gave them for the potter’s field,

as the Lord appointed me.

Who is the Lord in this last verse?

The problem I have with these verses in Matthew is that many people believed in Jesus (of the Gospel of John) because Jesus had raised Lazarus from the grave (in the Gospel of John) and it was the chief priests who were plotting to kill Lazarus and Jesus because they were losing their preeminence and fear of the Romans taking their nation and so forth.

John 11:48-50

48If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.

49And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all,

50Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.

John 18:14

14Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man should die for the people.

Then there is Joseph of Arimathea who was a a rich man from Arimathea, waiting for the kingdom of God, a secret disciple who craved the body of Jesus and who was a prominent member of the Council.

By body does this also mean the followers of Jesus?

Isaiah 53:9
And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the
rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.


Please read about DECEIT:

Prophecy of Esaias

Here is an interesting take on Joseph of Arimathea and Pilate:

Is Mark mocking Joseph of Arimathea, and Pilate?

What bewilders me is that Joseph of Arimathea is afraid of the Jews and is able to retrieve the body of Jesus from Pilate (a Roman).

Caiaphas and the chief priests are afraid that the Romans will take away their nation and all people would believe that Jesus is their Messiah if they allow Him to continue, so they plot to kill Him.

Another thing that bewilders me is that when Joseph of Arimathea goes to Pilate to take down the body of Jesus….why is Pilate surprised or shocked that Jesus was dead already? Supposedly IN THE SYNOPTIC GOSPELS there was an earthquake, and darkness for three hours, and the veil of the temple was torn in two. Wouldn’t one of these events and even more, all of these events make a person aware or suspicious that something unique was happening? Unless PILATE was taking a very heavy nap! And Joseph of Arimethea wants to bury Jesus before the Passover feast and an earthquake has just occurred, the veil of the Temple is torn in half, and darkness over the land?  Wouldn’t Joseph of Arimethea have been aware of this,


Or was Joseph of Arimethea in a hurry to hide the body of Jesus in a tomb with a big stone and get on with the Passover?

(Often people that commit a crime like to bury their crime quickly and there happened to be a grave nearby owned by Joseph of Arimethea.)

Why would Pilate give the body of Jesus to Joseph of Arimethea?

Who is Joseph of Arimethea?

Is he that “other disciple” written about in the gospel of John that let Peter in to where Jesus was being interrogated?

Seems to me Pilate was being awful lax just giving the body of Jesus to Joseph of Arimethea and did not seem nor need to confer with all the other chief priests and the Counsel who seemed to be in his ear before.

Maybe Joseph of Arimathea was the top man and Pontius was his servant!

Here is an article about Joseph of Arimathea with a comment about the burial of Jesus.  The reason I add this article is not for the article itself, but for the comment by Anna Rosa M which I found to be thought provoking at the least. I included the article even though I think it is a bit contrived  so you can see where the comment came from. Beneath the link for the article is the comment that seems appropriate to add to my post:

Strange things are happening: Joseph of Arimathea

“Even stranger things…

For the record, the Jews have never, ever practiced any form of embalming. Don’t take my word for it, check Judaic Mishnaic Law from the first century for confirmation.

As such, what on earth where Joseph A. and Nicodemus doing at the tomb…after sundown…with 70 plus pounds of spices and oils?

To claim that the wrapping of Our Lord’s body in linens, spices and oils was “in accordance with Jewish custom” is absolutely wrong.

Either the author was completely unaware of Jewish custom…or the ritual being performed on Christ’s body was NOT Jewish in origin.”

So why would a Jewish Councilman of the Sanhedrin, a “goodman and a just” as Luke describes Joseph of Arimathea, bury Jesus in an unJewish way,

or was Joseph of Arimathea not Jewish


and was actually in charge of the whole business.

Usually you give the body to the family, but that is nowadays.  I have no idea what they did back then and being under occupation of the Romans.

Seems that the tomb of Arimethea was pre-calculated as the sight for the body of Jesus.

Furthermore, if Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemas had already prepared the body of Jesus, why would the women come to the tomb to do the very same thing. I thought it was already done by these two secret disciples.

It does not make sense!

Luke 23:50-51

50And, behold, there was a man named Joseph, a counsellor; and he was a good man, and a just:

“and a just”  a just what?

a just man? a just judge? a just counsellor?

A Just Prince?

I think there is something missing in that sentence!

51(The same had not consented to the counsel and deed of them;) he was of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews: who also himself waited for the kingdom of God.


By the way, does God break his promises? If you read the prophecies in Zechariah, it seems that whoever wrote this part of Zechariah says that God does break His covenants:

Zechariah 11:10

10And I took my staff, even Beauty, and cut it asunder, that I might break my covenant which I had made with all the people.

What Covenant?

If Matthew wrote part of Zechariah…..Could it be that he is the prince that made the covenant that he breaks with all the people (the many)? The only covenant made in the gospel of Matthew and the Synoptic Gospels is at the “last supper” which is not written about in the gospel of John!

I don’t believe that God breaks His covenants that He makes,

but I do believe that a covenant was made by a deceiver, and it was broken, and this person thinks he is God.

He is the prince of this world, a liar, a murderer, and a thief!

IN essence what I mean is that the rendition of Jesus and the events described in the gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke (the Synoptic Gospels) seem to describe Jesus as a thief, murdering banker, austere, unforgiving, eager to watch men slayed before him, avenging such as threatening the daughters of Jerusalem, a lunatic such as cursing a fig tree and comparing faith to a mustard seed, telling everyone he met not to tell about him as the multitudes were following him and sends them to the temple to give them alms…

Give me a break!


Referring to the prophecy in Zechariah as the prophecy in Jeremiah which Matthew (or whoever wrote the gospel of Matthew) is deceptive and reminds me of what Peter said happened to Judas Iscariot in the Book of Acts, written by Luke (whoever he is) -who also refers to Jeremiah, and why Matthew should be the 12th apostle by drawing lots between two men, who I think were one and the same person…. which reminds me of Josephus and his stories. (Drawing Lots at Yodafat)

Talk about deception…..this is insanity!

So why should we not wrest with the scriptures

as Peter suggested?

I think it would be stupid not to wrest after reading the Synoptic Gospels, at least if you bother to compare them to the Gospel of John!!!!!!

2 Peter 3:16

As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
