Who's right - the Nazoreans or Christianity?

Nazoreans VS Christianity

The Nazoreans were modeled by Jesus, more properly known as Eshu in his native Galilean Aramaic. Hebrew advocates prefer the name Yeshua or Yeshu. I will refer to him as Jesus to sidestep any misunderstanding.


The story began with John the Baptist, in Aramaic - Yukhanan Mamdana. Hereafter called John the Baptist. John was a prophet and preacher. His message was for Israel to repent, turn from their beliefs and behaviors of many centuries wherein they turned from the true God to Yahweh, the jealous god of war whom Israel adopted in the days of Moses. John recognized that Israel and Judah had forsaken the true God and that the true prophets had warned the priests and people that God had never endorsed circumcision, blood sacrifice, the temple cult, and priesthood authority.


One very mysterious day, John entered the waters of the Jordan and a change occurred. The skies opened and he changed. His appearance changed and so did his mannerisms. He changed so much that some people recognized that he was John and others thought he was entirely a different person. From that moment on, he became known as Eshu, or as we know him as Jesus the Nazorean.


If you can’t grasp that message as truth, you are welcome to see them as two separate people. It does not matter as to what was taught by both. The same can be said of Jesus as Messiah. Originally few if any Nazoreans believed Jesus was Messiah. As time went on, the Pauline camp had an influence on some and possibly many who started to believe Jesus was Christ or Messiah. Messianic doctrines came from the Jewish priesthood whom John and Jesus both spoke against. It is one of those hollow doctrines that don’t make a difference because Messiah never came and never will come. An empty, baseless wish.


John was not born of a virgin which makes the point of Jesus’s virgin birth moot. Mary and Joseph were at the most, a couple whom Jesus lived with after the death of his natural parents, specifically Zacharias and Elizabeth. The complicated household included the children of Chalpai (Alphaeus, Clophas), the brother of Joseph. When Mary became a widow, she was taken in by Chalpai and became his wife and mother to his children. Children of Chalpai included Mattais (Matthew/Levi), Ya’akov (James, Jacob), Shimon (Simon), Thaddeus (Judah, Jude), Yosef (Joseph, Joses), Salome, and Mary. The two contradictory genealogies in the Bible of Jesus are meaningless.


Whether you think Jesus was born of Zacharias or Joseph or anybody else, he was human. Yes, he was inspired and at times even anointed from on high. He was not God-incarnate. His mission was simple: Bring wholeness to those who are not Whole. That is Salvation. Salvation had and has nothing to do with Heaven and Hell. The kingdoms of Heaven and God are within a person’s Soul, not an exterior destination.


Based on the above, the church, based on Paul, not Jesus, has gotten it all wrong. Paul was sincere, but mistaken.
