THE ASSZZ-HEADED CHRIST: Eleazar/Lazarus the real Christ Edited/Review & additions By A. Austin It is well known that early Christians were often accused of worshiping an *** (Donkey); Historians Tacitus, Minucius Felix and Tertullian all recorded this fact (Tac., I, V, 3,4; Tert Ad nations, I, 14; Minucius, Octavius, IX). For example , Tertullian claimed that an “apostate Jew” on day appeared in the streets of Carthage carrying a figure robed in a toga, with the ears and hoofs of an *** (Donkey) and that this monstrosity was labeled: Deus Christianorum Onocoetes (The God of the Christian begotten of an ***). [Keep in mind the Romans used the Greek god Circe (Church) to symbolically turn men into animals and feed (Eucharist/manna/penis) off of them see The Odyssey Book 10:380-570). This isn’t out of order because Suetonius reports that Vespasian Roman General was called the mule/donkey driver and he and his son Titus did take rebel leader Peter to Rome in a hauling mule fashion. Peter is the rock foundation of the Church (Circe) because he was captured underground rock cavern near the Temple (church) where Titus destroyed it and left no stone unturned (see War of the Jews Book 7 chapter 2. 1 & Matthew 17-20). A bronze statue of Peter in the Vatican museum has Peter as a rooster with a penis (manna/mushroom) as a beak with inscrptions “savior of the world”. The last time I hear about a **** and rooster’s beak was from Suetonius reports of emperor Vitellius: “Vitellius died at the age of 56…the omen of the rooster at Vienna had been interpreted as meaning that a Gaul would kill him –gallus is both a **** and a Gaul. This proved correct: the enemy general who brought him down was one Antonius Primus, a native of Tolosa, and his boyhood nickname had been Becco (“rooster’s beak). Other representation of the “***-headed Christ” have been discovered including a terra-cotta fragment found in 1881 near Naples, which has been dated to the first century and shows a figure with the head of an *** wearing a toga and seated on a chair with a roll in his hand, instructing a number of baboon-headed pupils. There is also an ancient gem with the carving of an ***-headed teacher of two human pupils who is dressed in the “pallium”, the form of cloak peculiar to sacred personages in early Christian art. Another ancient Syrian terra-cotta fragment also represents jesus, book in hand with the ears of an ***. What lies in back of this ***-headed imagery is a deeply hidden level of Typological (one character based upon another) symbolism in the Gospels that indicates that the Jewish “Christ” was an *** that had been beheaded. I did not include it in the first edition of Caesar’s Messiah as it is so complex and obscene that I felt it would make the simpler Jesus/Titus typology- which is grim enough-more difficult to accept. Recognizing the Gospels symbolism concerning the “***” begins with understanding the Typological meaning of the phrase “there they made him a supper” (John 12:2). In brief, the typological meaning of the phrase is established by its linkage to Josephus War of the Jews description of a Human Passover lamb that was a son of Mary. Josephus War of the Jews 6,201-219). Both Josephus and the Gospels stories of the human Passover lamb contain the concepts of Lazarus, Mary, eating, and a “fine portion” that was not taken away. This linkage builds upon the foundation established by the positioning of the “human Passover lambs” relative to the overall sequential typological mapping that exists between jesus ministry and Titus campaign. After reading Joeseph Atwill’s essay on The *** (Donkey)-headed Christ in his second book Shakespear’s secret Messiah I was convinced that the real messiah name was Lazrus (Elezar) based on a military leader who fought against the Roman Empire. Peter became his substitute Donkey taken to Rome to be executed. First we must note that Lazarus/Eleazar (they made him a supper (John 12:2) which matches him with War of the Jews 6, 201-219. Lazarus was not restored to life but merely raised his decomposing body from the ground. First we must understand that Christ Jesus was a title that was used by Lazarus. Just read Mark 14:3 and John 12: 1-9 where they talk of putting oil on Jesus/Lazarus head it’s the same oil for the same person, its interchangeable. Judas objects to the use of the expensive oil because it can be used for the poor. Judas states that the oil/head could have sold for more than 300 denarii or more than a years wage was 1 denarii per day. (Mark 14:5). The basis for the price he is asking is found in 2 Kings 6:25 (due to famine) where the price of an ***’s head is said to be 80 shekels. As a shekel was worth 4 denarii, the head would have fetched was 320 denarii= 80 x 4=320 which fits with Judas saying it was worth more that 300. Moving through the Typological storyline, the ‘need’ that Jesus tells his diciples in the synoptics ‘Triumphal entrance story that he has for ‘*****/Donkeys is actually to transport the Passover meal-the butchered ‘***’ Lazarus-to Jerusalem. And once he has his quartet of *****, he places lazarus body onto the team of three mules. Jesus can now fufill the prophecy in jeremiah because he as assembled three donkeys and the king/messiah of the jews-the *** Lazarus. The triumphal entry that the Gospels actually describe is that of three mules carrying the butchered body of the king of the jews, while he is being sat upon by the Romanized Christ, Jesus. Once this spoof image is understood, the Gospels triumphal entrance typological literary style of basing one character upon another in Josephus War of the Jews becomes visible. Jesus triumphal entrance is linked to War of the Jews 5,13,567-568, a story that –mirroring the Gospels-follows the description of an anointing party. Josephus describes a character he names “Manneus (a pun on Manna?) son of Lazarus who is obviously related to the gospels Lazarus. This character is responsible for hauling the dead bodies of the poor through the gates of Jerusalem and for paying the public stipend for the work. Between the 14th of Nisan (Passover) and the first of Tamuz (75 days) he tells Titus that he has hauled 115,880 bodies for the poor through the Gates, or 1545 per day. Thus, when Judas states two days from Passover in Mark 14:5 that the more than 300 denarii could have been given to the poor, the author is making a hidden, comical point. As 300 denarii literally translates as 3000 *****, the money is just enough to cover the cost for the more than three thousand ***** being taken through the gates in the two days prior to Passover in Josephus. At the end of this story there is talk of cattle dung and growing mushrooms or manna (or Manneus) on top of it. They starved the Jews to death and they started to eat cattle dung (War of the Jews 5,13,7) . I believe the Romans were using scriptures based on Ezekiel 4:9-16 advising the use of growing mushrooms/Herbs on top of cattle dung. The Romans using black comedy are saying Manna/Manneus should grow on the pile of dead bodies when the siege of Jerusalem Symbolized. The sacrament of Communion. It suggest that the Romans deliberately created the ritual as a cruel joke on Christians. In any event, the contemptuous humor that the Romans created regarding the cannibalism of the messianic Jews evidently springs from the irony they saw in a Jewish people with such strict dietary laws eating rancid human flesh. The irony of Jews-a people too fastidious to eat pork-eating human flesh with a focus on the penis would have been the climax of the joke being played as a reenactment of starvation and cannibalism during an actual war. The romans created this Christian tradition to create the impression that Eleazar’s body (Christ) had been cannibalized by his family and followers. Understanding this bleak inside joke also enables the reader to understand the satiric point in the resurrection of Jesus with the tomb being empty because the corpse had been eaten.The second immediate wave of the joke of creating Christianity as a replacement messianic religion whose “Son of David was, absurdly, not a warrior but a tax-paying pacifist, going into Vespasian, Titus kingdom without hands, or a foot and accepting slavery if its your lot. Then revelations 19:17-18 has Domitian have another wave of cannibalism and vampirism. The political victory of ancient Rome over the Jews is the Eucharist. APPENDIX Alexamenos graffito The Alexamenos graffito (also known as the graffito blasfemo) is an inscription carved in plaster on a wall near the Palatine Hill in Rome, now in the Palatine Antiquarium Museum. It is alleged to be among the earliest known pictorial representations of the Crucifixion of Jesus, together with some engraved gems The image depicts a human-like figure attached to a cross and possessing the head of a donkey. In the top right of the image is what has been interpreted as either the Greek letter upsilon or a tau cross. To the left of the image is a young man, apparently intended to represent Alexamenos a Roman soldier/guard, raising one hand in a gesture possibly suggesting worship. Beneath the cross is a caption written in crude Greek: can be understood as a variant spelling (possibly a phonetic misspelling) of Standard Greek ϲεβεται, which means "worships". The full inscription would then be translated as "Alexamenos worships [his] God".Several other sources suggest "Alexamenos worshipping God", or similar variants, as the intended translation. “This is a treasure beyond words”, says Joe Atwill. Alexamenos, likely servant came to understand the symbolism concerning the pruned Christ with the *** head. Perhaps the servant overheard patricians joking about how they given the slaves a *** head to worship. Another secret is now coming out. The relationship of **** and phallus is ancient. A bronze bust in the Vatican Museum, bearing the Greek inscription “Redeemer/savior of the World” (Fuchs, Geschichte der Erotischen Kunst [Berlin 1908] fig. 103), is given a ****’s head, the nose or beak being an erect penis.
