    MARY THE VIRGIN: Bogus as Bogoas the Eunuch

    During the time that Josephus Bar Mathias (Josephus of Armathea) was writing War of the Jews and Antiquities of the Jews, the Flavian Caesars royal trinity family (Vespasian, Titus and Domitian) were clearly involved with the production of Christianity. This suggest that Josephus, both a historian and a theologian, would have been familiar with the religion and its symbols. In fact, the total overlap of individuals and events in the New Testament and the works of Josephus indicates that he must have known a great deal about Christianity.

    The following is a list of individuals, groups and events mentioned by both Josephus, and the Gospels or book of Acts:

    Simon the Magician

    The Egyptian false prophet

    Ananias the high priest

    Flex the procurator , and his wife Drusilla

    Festus the procurator

    Agrippa II and Berenice (concubine to Titus)

    The Widow’s sacrifice of a mite

    King Herod

    The slaughter of the innocents

    Archelaus

    The Census of Quirinius

    The fifteenth year of Tiberius

    John the Baptist

    Pharisees

    Sadducees

    James the brother of Jesus the son of Damneus (All Jesus in Josephus works are composites of the Jesus in the New Testament)

    Judas the Galilean

    The famine under Claudius

    The death of Herod Agrippa I

    Jesus (A woe saying Jesus) Jesus who is crucified then a Supper is served which is the correct sequence for Lazarus; with a hidden sexual innuendo of being sat upon at the table John 12:12-19. The Romans sought to humiliate the Jewish Christ in the most extreme and comic manner possible.

    In addition to these overlapping characters and events, the works share a number of conceptual parallels other than those I have previously presented. I want to briefly discuss some of these. The first actually predates Jesus’ ministry and Titus campaign. It consists of the parallel “slaughter of the innocents” that occurs in both the New Testament and Josephus Antiquities of the Jews.

    Though other scholars have noticed this parallel, I am not aware of anyone else having seen the unusual temporal correspondence between the two passages. The passages in the New Testament and Josephus dealing with the slaughter of the innocents occur at the same time. Since both tales involve Herod this may seem unimportant , however, when this parallel is viewed in the context of the other New Testament/Josephus parallels, its real significance becomes clear.

    From the New Testament:

    …in the days of King Herod, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem,

    Asking, “ where is the child who has been born king of the Jews? For we observed his star at its rising, and have come to pay him homage”. When King Herod heard this, he was frightened, and all Jerusalem with him; and calling together all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the Messiah was to be born. They told him, In Bethlehem of Judea, for it is written by the prophet…

    …when Herod saw that he had been tricked by the wise men, he was infuriated, and he sent for and killed all the children in and around Bethlehem who were two years old or under, according to the time that he had learned from the wise men. (Matthew 2:1-5, 16).

    Josephus records a parallel event

    Now there was a certain sect of the Jews who valued themselves highly for the skill they had in the ways of their fathers and who believed they best observed the laws favored by god-the sect called the Pharisees-by whom the women of the palace were guided. They were fully able to deal successfully with the king due to their prescience, but often fell into fighting and setting up obstacles to him.

    For example, when all the Jewish people pledged their loyalty to Caesar and to the king’s government, these men, over six thousand of them, refused to swear; and when the king therefore imposed a fine on them, the wife of Pheroras [the king’s brother] paid it.

    Now to repay this kindness of hers, being believed to have, by divine inspiration, the foreknowledge of things to come, they foretold that god had decreed that Herod’s government would be taken from him and from his descendants, and that the kingdom would come to her and Pheroras and their children.

    These perdictions, which did not escape detection by Salome [the king’s sister], were reported to the king, and also that they had subverted some others of the palace. So the king killed those of the Pharisees principally involved, as well as Bogoas the eunuch, and a certain karos, who exceeded all of his peers in beauty and was his favorite boy. He also killed everyone of his own house who had allied themselves to talk of the Pharisees.

    Bogoas had been elated by their perdiction that he would be hailed as the Father and the benefactor of the one who would be their appointed king; for to this king would fall power over all things, and he would provide Bogoas with a marriage and the ability to sire children of his own line.(Ant XVII 2, 41-45)

    The passage above from Josephus has clear parallels to the nativity story given in Luke and Mathew. Notice that in each we have wise men, who have the gift of prophecy, predicting that “the king who was to come” will end Herod’s reign. Herod’s reaction in both is to “slaughter the innocents”. Josephus describes the new king as someone who will have “power over all things”. It is more important, however, that both stories involve a miraculous birth by someone normally assumed to be incapable of having children-in the New testament it is a virgin , in Josephus a eunuch.

    This parallel between the Virgin Mary and the eunuch Bagoas is the beginning of parallel sequences of events in the New Testament and War of the Jews. The authors switch a eunuch for a virgin to create a parallel “miraculous birth”. The story of Bagoas reveals the mindset of the authors of the New Testament in that it shows the contempt they had for those who believed in fables about virgin births.

    Sex and contempt was the order of the day for this Roman inner circle who had the Gospels written as a parody. New Testament may perhaps been an offshoot of Covenant the Jews had with God symbolized with the circumcised Penis. A ritual based on the Satan cutting Osiris penis and feeding it to a Nile Fish. Testament=drives from the fact that you held your testicles when you swore, swear gave an oath to Testify. Instead of circumcision Christians took part in the Holy communion of eating the Penis of Lazarus/Jesus as Manna=Mushroom/Penis. You no longer have to sacrifice a portion of your penis to God you just have to eat and believe in Jesus and you are adopted as his child without the physical use of his penis in your family tree. We have been made a monkey and put on a false tree. We are a fool for Christ/Titus and honor him in his victory dinner.

    Jesus leaves Peter (Rock/Penis) to be the Rock foundation of his Church (Circe). He tell Peter to feed the people (John 21) and the Catholic make bronze image of him as a Penis. Circe was a Greek/Black goddess to transforms men into animals to be eaten.


    Notes:

    Isis made a substitute Penis from an Obelisks (Tekhen) for Osiris greeks called it a “Small spit” because the Obelisks was tall. A similar word is used only once in Mark 6:3 (Tekton) to designation of Christ not as a carpenter but a Stone Mason.

    Also Josephus may have used the trinity (Osiris, Isis and Horus) immaculate conception, virgin birth and resurrection story which is carved on the walls of the Temple of Luxor in 1380BC

    Don’t think the goddess Circe isn’t important. Luke apparently recast Homer's story in order to contrast Elpenor's lethal fall from Circe's roof with Eutychus's good fortune at having died in the presence of a wonder-working apostle. Here at last we have a reason for the lamps, the fall, the delay of the revivification. the peculiarities in Acts 20:7-12, but one apparently never before advanced, namely, that Luke attempted, somewhat infelicitously, to recast the story of Elpenor found in Books 10-12 of The Odyssey
