The Insurrection and Capture of Jesus

As per the Gospels Shortly after being proclaimed as a king by the Jews, Jesus caused a riot in the temple by overturning tables and swinging a lash at people.

(John 2:15
So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple area, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables.

 Soon after the temple riot and just shortly before his arrest in the insurrection at the Garden of Gethsemane on the Mount of Olives , the gospels have Jesus telling his apostles to sell their cloaks and buy swords —

Luke 22:36 He said to them, "But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don't have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.

That some sort of struggle occurred in the Garden of Gethsemane is evident in the fact that Simon Peter is recorded by the Gospels as having cut off the ear of one of the High priests. Simon was obeying the orders of his would be king, when at the last supper he and the other apostles were armed { Luke 22:36 }. Incidentally Judas Iscariot was also following the orders of Jesus when he "sold out" Jesus for the thirty pieces of silver . Apparently a confrontation was planned for that evening at Gethsemane , which may not have gone well for the last King of the Jews.

 Jesus was captured as per the Gospel narrative at the Garden of Gethsemane by a "cohort" of men after being "betrayed" by Judas Iscariot . To the modern reader , a cohort is a undetermined number of men / Roman Centurions or Soldiers. In actuality a Roman Cohort was a fairly precise number. A Roman Legion was on the average 6,000 soldiers, a cohort was 1/10th of a Legion, making a cohort 500-600 soldiers.

 The Roman Authorities certainly did not send 500 soldiers to arrest a simple Pacifist missionary who preached peace and love. The 500 soldiers were dispatched to quell the insurrection in which Jesus  was arrested as an insurrectionist.  The Book of Mark states, in chapter 15 verse 7 that "A man called Barabbas was in prison with the insurrectionists who had committed murder in the uprising."  Bar-abbas , son of the Father was in fact an allegorical reference to Jesus himself - See The Barabbas Mystery

The Historian Josephus may  being making a reference to this insurrection in the following passage:

"...about this time, someone came out of Egypt to Jerusalem, claiming to be a prophet. He advised the crowd to go along with him to the Mount of Olives, as it was called, which lay over against the city, and at the distance of a kilometer. He added that he would show them from hence how the walls of Jerusalem would fall down at his command, and he promised them that he would procure them an entrance into the city through those collapsed walls. Now when Felix was informed of these things, he ordered his soldiers to take their weapons, and came against them with a great number of horsemen and footmen from Jerusalem, ..."

The version above however goes on to differ greatly , in that the Egyptian escapes and is not heard from again, which bears some similarities to an apocryphal version of the crucifixion in which Jesus survives and a substitute [Simon of Cyrene] is crucified in his place.


The Trial and Crucifixion of Jesus

 There are substantial and valid arguments to support the theory that Jesus was never actually crucified. The Koran for example , openly accepts Jesus as a prophet, but portrays the crucifixion and resurrection as a fabrication. However, with no slur intended against Islam, even though the Koran is not very accurate as an Historical document, as it also portrays Miriam , the sister of Moses as being the Mother of Jesus. Elements of the Islamic interpretation on the crucifixion are duplicated in The Second Treatise of Great Seth, unearthed among the Nag Hammadi scrolls after World War II relates Jesus saying:

 "I did not succumb to them as they had planned….And I did not die but in reality but in appearance, lest I be put shame by them….For my death which they think happened [happened] to them in their error and blindness, since they nailed their man unto their death…it was another…..who drank the gall and the vinegar; it was not I. They struck me with reed; it was another, Simon, who bore the cross on his shoulder. It was another upon whom they placed the crown of thorns. But I was rejoicing in the height over…..their error….And I was laughing at their ignorance".

 This statement attributed to Jesus is totally out of character with what has come to be the accepted pacifist view of him. It shows him containing an inner hostility, and vindictiveness and is more in line with the Mandæan view of Jesus as depicted in their Mandæan Book of John. . Mandæans regard Jesus as a false messiah but revere John the Baptist.  They regard John the Baptist as the 'true Christ' and Jesus as a usurper of his role and authority.

 Numerous other scholars have theorized that Jesus did not die on the Cross as well. As I previously suggested the crucifixion very well have been an Gnostic - Allegorical equation.


The procedures of Roman crucifixion adhered to a precise procedure. Upon being convicted the prisoner would be flogged , his outstretched arms would be fastened to a heavy wooden beam placed horizontally across his shoulders and neck . And the victim would be led to the place of crucifixion where he raised by the beam on a vertical post. This put intense pressure upon the victim's chest and made it impossible for him to breathe unless his feet were fastened to the stake. Leg breaking , such as portrayed in the biblical accounts, was a form of mercy to avoid prolonging the agony - with no support the victim would die of asphyxiation much faster. According to the gospel, Jesus' legs were never broken, he should have survived several days longer. but he dies, after a few hours on the cross.  Even Pilate is surprised upon learning of his death

[Mark 15:44]. Pilate was surprised to hear that he was already dead. Summoning the centurion, he asked him if Jesus had already died.

Religious scholars agree that Jesus modeled his life {At least as per the Gospels} and movements to coincide with ancient Jewish writings that spoke about the coming of a Messiah and the tribulations he would undergo. It is not impossible for Jesus to have died on the cross  so soon , but highly improbable that he did. the death of Jesus comes very conveniently, it occurs just as soldiers are about to break his legs.

John 19:33 – “But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs.”

Which maintains the Prophecy concerning a Messiah in Psalms


Psalms 34:20  “He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.”


"Bishop Irenaeus and Bishop Papias have both averred that Christ lived to old age (even as late as 98-117 A.D.), flatly denying thus as 'heresy' the Gospel stories as to his crucifixion at about thirty years of age." - p. 173, "Forgery In Christianity," by (Maj.) Joseph Wheless

 In the Gospels Jesus, hanging on the cross, says that he thirsts and is given a sponge soaked in vinegar.

Matthew 27:48 Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge. He filled it with wine vinegar, put it on a stick, and offered it to Jesus to drink.

Mark 15:36 One man ran, filled a sponge with wine vinegar, put it on a stick, and offered it to Jesus to drink. "Now leave him alone. Let's see if Elijah comes to take him down," he said.

John 19:29 A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus' lips.


Tradition has it that this act was an act of cruelty, in actuality vinegar, or soured wine - was a temporary stimulant used to resuscitate exhausted galley slaves. As soon as Jesus tastes or inhales the sponge he dies. If vinegar was given the opposite effect would be expected. .If it were a sponge soaked in a soporific drug , such as opium for instance, which was known to be used in Palestine at that time - unconsciousness would occur, giving the impression of death. What the Gospels are portraying may well be an elaborate charade designed to produce an appearance of death when in fact the "victim" was still alive. Such a hoax would not only save Jesus' life but would have also realized the Old Testament prophecies of a coming Messiah.

 In the Greek version when Joseph of Arimathea asks for Jesus' body, he uses the word soma - which is a word that  applies only to a living body, when Pilate replies , he uses the word ptoma - which is a word that  applies only to a corpse.  There is little historical information about this Joseph of Arimathea. The Gospels have him as a secret disciple of Jesus, was very wealthy and belonged to the Jewish Council of Elders, the Sanhedrin. It would thus seem apparent that this Joseph was a very influential man.



John 19:20-22 Many of the Jews read this sign, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city, and the sign was written in Aramaic, Latin and Greek. 21The chief priests of the Jews protested to Pilate, "Do not write 'The King of the Jews,' but that this man claimed to be king of the Jews." 22Pilate answered, "What I have written, I have written."


atthew 11:11  I tell you the truth: Among those born of women there has not risen anyone greater than John the Baptist ...
