'The Christ Conspiracy' in the Huffington Post

"My friend Dr. Robert Eisenman, a well-known Bible scholar, has just scored a major coup—albeit one that may not be immediately recognized—in his article for the Huffington Post entitled, "Redemonizing Judas: Gospel Fiction or Gospel Truth?" In this essay, Dr. Eisenman—a main mover behind getting the Dead Sea Scrolls released to the public—explores the propensity of scholars, journalists and other writers to simply accept a priori the story of Jesus Christ in the New Testament as factual and to proceed from there. His analysis—"castigation" may be a fairer term—is prompted by a recent New Yorker article regarding the Gnostic text "The Gospel of Judas," which created such a brouhaha some years ago when it was given a great deal of publicity......"

So Acharya S. got a syndicated article? Anyway thanks for elucidating Eisenman's research. My friend was reading Eisenman's book on James and I couldn't get any clear answer about whether Eisenman was even considering the possibility that Jesus was not a real person. My friend didn't seem to know. It seems even most of the reviews of Eisenman's book on James think that Eisenman thinks Jesus was a real person. Eisenmen apparently thinks that the "brother of Jesus" was real -- James -- and this implies Jesus was also real -- but then Eisenman states Jesus was added later and that the family of James was extended to create the 12 apostles. Which implies Jesus was not real.... Well regardless of that confusing tome -- this latest article in the Huffington Post clearly states that Eisenman CONSIDERS the issue of Jesus possible not having existed historically. It truly is astonishing that an academic would actually utter such blasphemy! haha.

It's just a matter of time. The more time spent contemplating the issue the more scholars should start coming around.

Instead of trying to get the Dead Seas scrolls released, on a slightly different path we should be asking why, except for fragments, they have not been made public? Other Essene texts of interest are the Isiah MSS, the oldest of its kind, which show signs of Gematria based on divisions of 108, another Buddhist number.

As for Judas the cat is out of the bag because the four gospels agree with this "Gnostic" account, in these gospels Jesus not only states that he knows his betrayer, but also that he will hang on a cross for 3 days before getting up. Ultimately, because every good hero must have a clever anti-hero, Judas is the Buddhist Devadata who, like Mara, attempts to lead Buddha to his death; but Dr. Lindtner also shows him to be Cundas among even other Buddhist scapegoats. That the orthodox Buddhism (theravada) and orthodox Christianity (of the 4 gospels) shows Devadata/Judas to be figures who are truly bent on evil, and that the liberal Gnostics and Mahayanists view Devadatta/Judas to be extensions of Jesus/Buddha, there skill in means (another play on tekton, from tak-don) is very revealing. It is recorded that, in a one on one conversation, Jesus and Buddha both denied the Devil's gifts. In a wonderful post at his site JesusisBuddha.com, Dr. Lindtner has reminded me that in the earliest Greek, on his trip to meat the devil, Jesus is carried by the wind. So, Satan is the opposite of Nirvana, or 'no wind' which would make him vana, or vain the Latin Venus. Again, to the ancient Buddhists, and not so much with the Jains, the word nirvana took on multiple and allegorical meanings, one of them being "not vain" na-vana, or 'no jungle, 'no thicket, etc, 'no wind. Also noted is that Jesus was said to have stopped the wind and the ocean tides, the same was first said of Buddha and his son Rahula.

few thoughts-
