CHRISTIAN PARADOX, GREEK THEATHER AND SATYRICON – PART 3

Gina LolaBrigetta Gina Lollobrigida was asked by a news reporter, “What do you think of American men?” Her answer allegedly was, “I don’t know. I haven’t met any yet.” She played with Rock Hudson in the 1965 film, “Strange Bedfellows.” See Motion Picture review…http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0058621/.

JESUS THE MAGICIAN, by Morton Smith and published by Harper & Row 1978. In the book reviews, of the three books in this series of post, the book titled,  “JESUS THE MAGICIAN, ” by Morton Smith is probably the most reveling. Professor Smith had a bachelor’s degree from Harvard College and Hebrew University Jerusalem. He was made professor emeritus in 1985. Professor Smith was ridiculed by many other academics because he had many unorthodox views about Christianity. Now, as I have pointed out in other postings, nobody can know exactly what went on inside the early Christian communities. That was over two thousand years ago! The world has change dramatically since then. Many valuable records have been lost to history, and even back then, many Christians  just did not agree on dogma and doctrine. And then, there was “The Secret Doctrine. Get real Christian!” Do you really believe that Jesus said nothing more to anybody, about anything, other that what has been made public? He never had an unrecorded word to say about Caesar, his family, brothers or sisters, friends and relations??? There probably is a lot of very important things that Jesus said that nobody has recorded or made public. One especially important subject to me is why the Christian Bible says nothing about opium or morphine. Some Bible scholars believe that the Bible does mention opium. See the following quote…“Opium is a Greek name and means juice, therefore the Hebrew name ophion mentioned in the Talmud 9. According to some investigators, there is reference to opium in the Bible with the name of rôsh 9. At least in one Portuguese translation of the Bible there is mention to “water of gall” (Jer VIII – 14 and Jer IX – 15) 11. Buckland et al.’s Biblical dictionary 12 describes “water of gall” as the product of a plant known as “somniferum” which is poppy’s Latin name. It is curious that this substance was not used for pleasant purposes. Conversely, it was given by the Lord as punishment for Israel’s people apostasy. It is written in Jeremiah (Jer IX-15) “Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will feed them, even this people, with wormwood, and give them water of gall to drink” 11….See website an excellent source…http://www.scielo.br/scielo.php?pid=S0034-70942005000100015&script=sci_arttext&tlng=en
