THE BIGGEST DECEIT IN THE ROMANTICISED VERSION OF CHRISTIANITY


THE BIGGEST DECEIT IN THE ROMANTICISED VERSION OF CHRISTIANITY IS THIS GARGUNTUAN GOSPEL ACCORDING TO JOHN BUT IS REALLY A LIE THAT WAS WRITTEN BY JESUIT THEOLOGIANS AND HOISTED ON A FISHERMAN NAMED JOHN



No apostle could have known the philosophy, theology and metaphysics embedded in this masterpiece. The language, the syntax, the allegory and the metaphors could never have been written by any fisherman nor matched by what is found in the Epistles of John the beloved apostle.

1 ¶ In <en> the beginning <arche> was <en> the Word <logos>, and <kai> the Word <logos> was <en> with <pros> God <theos>, and <kai> the Word <logos> was <en> God <theos>. (KJV)
 1 ¶ In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (RSV)

People's New Testament Commentary:
 The Beginning of Christ's Ministry

SUMMARY OF JOHN 1: The Word Made Flesh. The Witness of John. John's Disciples Pointed to Christ. The Lord Calls His First Disciples. An Israelite Indeed.

  In the beginning was the Word, etc. The first fourteen verses are introductory. In order to set at rest all controversy the Divine nature of Jesus, John glances, in the first three verses, back to the beginning, recorded in Genesis, and affirms: (1) That he who was afterwards manifest as the Christ existed before creation began; (2) that he was present with God; (3) that he was divine; (4) that he was the Word; (5) that by or through him were all things made that were made (Joh 1:3). The first chapter of Genesis helps us to understand its meaning. God said, "Let there be light" [Ge 1:3], "Let there be a firmament" [Ge 1:6], "Let the earth bring forth" [Ge 1:11], etc., and it was done. God exhibits his creative power through the Word, and manifests his will through the Word. There are mysteries belonging to the divine nature and to the relation between the Son and the Father that we have to wait for eternity to solve. They are too deep for human solution, but this is clear: that God creates and speaks to man through the Word. As we clothe our thoughts in words, God reveals his will by the Word, and when that Word is clothed in flesh, as the Teacher of men, we recognize it as Jesus Christ.

People's New Testament Commentary:


   In him was life. He had life in himself, and hence is a fountain from whence life flows to man. Death could not hold him, because in him is life, and he became "the Resurrection and the Life" [Joh 11:25] for us.

  The life was the light of men. The life that Christ bestows enlightens men. He is the Light of the World [Joh 8:12; 9:5]. His light chases away the darkness of the earth, though, when John wrote, the darkness did not receive it. Men, in darkness, had eyes and saw not. All history demonstrates that Christ is the Light of the World; every redeemed soul recognizes the fact.

 5 ¶ And <kai> the light <phos> shineth <phaino> in <en> darkness <skotia>; and <kai> the darkness <skotia> comprehended <katalambano> it <autos> not <ou>. {comprehended: or, did not admit, or, receive} (KJV)

People's New Testament Commentary:


   There was a man sent from God. The writer now speaks of a witness to the Light, John, a man sent from God [Joh 1:7,8]. He was called to his work from his mother's womb [Lu 1:13-17].

People's New Testament Commentary:


   The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light. John came, not so much as a reformer, as a witness. His work, as declared by Malachi, was to be a messenger to go before the Lord [Mal 3:1]. In all his preaching he testified of Christ. He pointed his own disciples to Jesus.

 8 He was <en> not <ou> that <ekeinos> Light <phos>, but <alla> was sent to <hina> bear witness <martureo> of <peri> that Light <phos>. (KJV)
 8 He was not the light, but came to bear witness to the light. (RSV)

People's New Testament Commentary:


   He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness. An early heretical sect held that John the Baptist was the Messiah. The apostle is explicit, in order to correct this error.

 9 That was <en> the true <alethinos> Light <phos>, which <hos> lighteth <photizo> every man <pas> <anthropos> that cometh <erchomai> into <eis> the world <kosmos>. (KJV)
 9 The true light that enlightens every man was coming into the world. (RSV)

People's New Testament Commentary:


   That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. The Revision reads, "There was the true light, even the light which lighteth every man, coming into the world." Grammatically, both in the Greek and the English, coming may belong to the light, or every man. We believe that it should agree with light. That was the true or real Light who, when he comes into the world, enlightens every man. Jesus says (Joh 12:46), "I am come a light into the world."

 10 He was <en> in <en> the world <kosmos>, and <kai> the world <kosmos> was made <ginomai> by <dia> him <autos>, and <kai> the world <kosmos> knew <ginosko> him <autos> not <ou>. (KJV)

People's New Testament Commentary:


The tenth verse declares: (1) That he  was in the world, (2) the world was made by him, (3) it did not recognize him. The next verse states (1) that he came, personally, to his own. He took upon himself a fleshly form and came to the race to which he was united by fleshly ties; (2) his own received him not. The world is humanity in general, which knew him not; his own is the Jewish nation, who received him not.

 11 He came <erchomai> unto <eis> his own <idios>, and <kai> his own <idios> received <paralambano> him <autos> not <ou>. (KJV)

GBN ACC Barnes FBN JFB JWN PNTC RWP TFG TSK WBN
People's New Testament Commentary:


   But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God. The Revision reads, "children of God," which is better. While the nation rejected him, some received him. To such as receive him in every age he gives power to become the children of God. The manner in which he is received is given:

  Even to them that believe on his name. It is not declared that they are made children by believing, but to the believer he gives the "power to become" a child. When one believes in Christ, his faith becomes a power to lead him to yield himself to God and to receive the Word into his heart.

People's New Testament Commentary:


   Who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh. The Jews prided themselves on being Abraham's children, and trusted in their blood for salvation. To be a son of God is not a fleshly birth at all, but the spirit of the subject is "born of God." In Joh 3:1-8, the Savior explains this birth more particularly,

 14 And <kai> the Word <logos> was made <ginomai> flesh <sarx>, and <kai> dwelt <skenoo> among <en> us <hemin>, (and <kai> we beheld <theaomai> his <autos> glory <doxa>, the glory <doxa> as <hos> of the only begotten <monogenes> of <para> the Father <pater>,) full <pleres> of grace <charis> and <kai> truth <aletheia>.

People's New Testament Commentary:


   This is the record of John. The writer now plunges at once into his history. He passes by the childhood of the Lord, John's ministry, and comes at once to the time when Jesus, thirty years old, is acknowledged by the Father as the Son of God.

  When the Jews sent priests and Levites. The Jewish rulers, the Sanhedrin, the court or parliament of seventy-one members who ruled Israel. The delegation sent to John was official. His preaching in the wilderness of Jordan had stirred the whole land, and they were sent to ascertain his character. Matthew, Mark, and Luke use the term Jews very seldom [sixteen times], John often [seventy times], a proof that he wrote far away from Palestine and for Gentiles.

Some conjectured that John was the expected Christ; others that he was Elijah who was first to come (Mal 4:5); others that he was "that prophet," the one predicted by Moses (De 18:15); but he declared that he was none of these. When they insisted that he should declare who he was, he quoted Isaiah, and said he was "The voice of one crying in the wilderness [see Isa 40:3]. See PNTC for Mt 3:3.

   Why baptizest thou then? If he were Christ, or Elias, or "that prophet," they could understand why he should establish a new religious rite, but if none of these, why should he do so? Their perplexity shows that the baptismal rite was new to them. There is no proof that Jewish proselyte baptism of Gentile converts existed at this period, save the assertion of the Talmud, written two or three centuries after this. Josephus, who wrote in the time of the apostles, is silent about it.

People's New Testament Commentary:


   The next day John seeth Jesus. Here Jesus first appears, in person, in John's account, who omits all the details given by Matthew and Luke of his earlier life. He was now thirty years old, and came from Galilee to Jordan to be baptized of John. This interview was after the baptism (Joh 1:33), and probably after the Temptation.

  Behold the Lamb of God. Innocent like the lamb, to be offered as a lamb, "led as a lamb to the slaughter" (Isa 53:7). The lamb was commonly used as a sin offering (Le 4:32), and when John points to Jesus as "the" Lamb of God he can only mean that God had provided him as a sacrificial offering.

  The sin of the world. Not of Jews only, but of Gentiles. John points to Jesus as the world's Savior.

One of these two, we learn from Joh 1:40, was Andrew; the other, we have reason to believe, was John, the apostle.

 36 And <kai> looking upon <emblepo> Jesus <Iesous> as he walked <peripateo>, he saith <lego>, Behold <ide> the Lamb <amnos> of God <theos>! (KJV)
 36 and he looked at Jesus as he walked, and said, "Behold, the Lamb of God!" (RSV)
Joh 1:29

People's New Testament Commentary:


   Behold the Lamb of God! On the preceding day John had recognized Jesus in a public discourse as "the Lamb of God that taketh away the sin of the world" [Joh 1:29]. Now he personally points the disciples to him.

 37 ¶ And <kai> the two <duo> disciples <mathetes> heard <akouo> him <autos> speak <laleo>, and <kai> they followed <akoloutheo> Jesus <Iesous>. (KJV)

 38 Jesus turned, and saw them following, and said to them, "What do you seek?" And they said to him, "Rabbi" (which means Teacher), "where are you staying?" (RSV)
GBN ACC Barnes JFB PNTC RWP TFG TSK
People's New Testament Commentary:


   Rabbi. A term meaning "teacher," or "master."

  Where dwellest thou? These disciples had followed at the bidding of John. Their question implies a desire to be in the company of Jesus.

 39 He saith <lego> unto them <autos>, Come <erchomai> and <kai> see <eido>. They came <erchomai> and <kai> saw <eido> where <pou> he dwelt <meno>, and <kai> abode <meno> with <para> him <autos> that <ekeinos> day <hemera>: for <de> it was <en> about <hos> the tenth <dekatos> hour <hora>. {about...: that was two hours before night} (KJV)
 39 He said to them, "Come and see." They came and saw where he was staying; and they stayed with him that day, for it was about the tenth hour. (RSV)
GBN ACC Barnes FBN JFB PNTC RWP TFG TSK
People's New Testament Commentary:


   It was about the tenth hour. Counting from six o'clock, the first hour among the Jews, the tenth hour would be four P. M.

 40 One <heis> of <ek> the two <duo> which <ho> heard <akouo> <para> John <Ioannes> speak, and <kai> followed <akoloutheo> him <autos>, was <en> Andrew <Andreas>, Simon <Simon> Peter's <Petros> brother <adelphos>. (KJV)
 40 One of the two who heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. (RSV)
Mt 4:18

People's New Testament Commentary:


   One of the two . . . was Andrew. Afterwards an apostle. He has the honor of being one of the first two disciples of Jesus.

 41 He <houtos> first <protos> findeth <heurisko> his own <idios> brother <adelphos> Simon <Simon>, and <kai> saith <lego> unto him <autos>, We have found <heurisko> the Messias <Messias>, which <hos> is <esti>, being interpreted <methermeneuo>, the Christ <Christos>. {the Christ: or, the Anointed} (KJV)
 41 He first found his brother Simon, and said to him, "We have found the Messiah" (which means Christ). (RSV)
GBN ACC Barnes FBN JFB JWN PNTC RWP TFG TSK
People's New Testament Commentary:


   Findeth his own brother Simon. Simon Peter. In true missionary spirit Andrew at once and first sought his own brother.

  We have found the Messias. The Christ promised by the prophets. Messiah is the Hebrew word meaning the same as Christ, [that is, "Anointed One."]

 42 And <kai> he brought <ago> him <autos> to <pros> Jesus <Iesous>. And <de> when Jesus <Iesous> beheld <emblepo> him <autos>, he said <epo>, Thou <su> art <ei> Simon <Simon> the son <huios> of Jona <Ionas>: thou <su> shalt be called <kaleo> Cephas <Kephas>, which <hos> is by interpretation <hermeneuo>, A stone <Petros>. (KJV)
 42 He brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him, and said, "So you are Simon the son of John? You shall be called Cephas" (which means Peter). (RSV)
Mt 16:18
ACC Barnes FBN JFB JWN PNTC RWP TFG TSK
People's New Testament Commentary:


   Thou shalt be called Cephas. A Hebrew word meaning "stone." Peter is the Greek form.

 43 ¶ The day following <epaurion> Jesus <Iesous> would <thelo> go forth <exerchomai> into <eis> Galilee <Galilaia>, and <kai> findeth <heurisko> Philip <Philippos>, and <kai> saith <lego> unto him <autos>, Follow <akoloutheo> me <moi>. (KJV)
 43 ¶ The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. And he found Philip and said to him, "Follow me." (RSV)
ACC Barnes JFB MHC MHCC PNTC RWP TFG TSK
People's New Testament Commentary:


   Findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me. This is the first recorded instance of the Savior calling a disciple to follow him. Philip, it must be borne in mind, is not Philip, "one of the seven" [Ac 21:8], but "one of the Twelve," a citizen of Bethsaida of Galilee [Joh 12:21], and a fellow-townsman of Andrew and Peter.

 44 Now <de> Philip <Philippos> was <en> of <apo> Bethsaida <Bethsaida>, the city <polis> of <ek> Andrew <Andreas> and <kai> Peter <Petros>. (KJV)
 44 Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. (RSV)

 45 Philip <Philippos> findeth <heurisko> Nathanael <Nathanael>, and <kai> saith <lego> unto him <autos>, We have found <heurisko> him, of whom <hos> Moses <Moseus> in <en> the law <nomos>, and <kai> the prophets <prophetes>, did write <grapho>, Jesus <Iesous> of <apo> Nazareth <Nazareth>, the son <huios> of Joseph <Ioseph>. (KJV)
 45 Philip found Nathanael, and said to him, "We have found him of whom Moses in the law and also the prophets wrote, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph." (RSV)
Ge 3:15; 49:10; De 18:18; Isa 4:2; 7:14; 9:6; 53:2; Mic 5:2; Zec 6:12; 9:9; Mt 2:23; Lu 2:4; 24:27; Joh 21:2
GBN ACC Barnes FBN JFB JWN PNTC RWP TFG TSK WBN
People's New Testament Commentary:


   Philip findeth Nathanael. As we learn from Joh 21:2, Nathanael was a Galilean, his home being at "Cana in Galilee." His name only occurs in these two places. He is supposed to have been one of the Twelve, the same one mentioned in the other Gospels as Bartholomew [Mt 10:3; Mr 3:18; Lu 6:14], which means "son of Tolmai." The use of the name in Joh 21:2 favors this hypothesis.

  We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write. There was only one to whom this could refer, "The prophet like unto Moses" (De 34:10; Ac 3:22; 7:37), the Messiah; and when Philip names Jesus of Nazareth, Nathanael is at once skeptical whether the Messiah could come out of Nazareth, an insignificant and despised place.

 46 And <kai> Nathanael <Nathanael> said <epo> unto him <autos>, Can <dunamai> there any <tis> good thing <agathos> come <einai> out of <ek> Nazareth <Nazareth>? Philip <Philippos> saith <lego> unto him <autos>, Come <erchomai> and <kai> see <eido>. (KJV)
 46 Nathanael said to him, "Can anything good come out of Nazareth?" Philip said to him, "Come and see." (RSV)
Joh 7:41-42,52
GBN ACC Barnes FBN JFB JWN PNTC RWP TFG TSK
People's New Testament Commentary:


   Come and see. That is the best answer to the skeptic. Bring him to Christ, let him consider him, and what he has done for mankind. The strongest proof that Jesus is the Christ is Jesus himself.

 47 Jesus <Iesous> saw <eido> Nathanael <Nathanael> coming <erchomai> to <pros> him <autos>, and <kai> saith <lego> of <peri> him <autos>, Behold <ide> an Israelite <Israelites> indeed <alethos>, in <en> whom <hos> is <esti> no <ou> guile <dolos>! (KJV)
 47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and said of him, "Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!" (RSV)

 48 Nathanael <Nathanael> saith <lego> unto him <autos>, Whence <pothen> knowest thou <ginosko> me <me>? Jesus <Iesous> answered <apokrinomai> and <kai> said <epo> unto him <autos>, Before <pro> that Philip <Philippos> called <phoneo> thee <se>, when thou wast <on> under <hupo> the fig tree <suke>, I saw <eido> thee <se>. (KJV)
 48 Nathanael said to him, "How do you know me?" Jesus answered him, "Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you." (RSV)
GBN ACC Barnes FBN JFB JWN PNTC RWP TFG TSK WBN
People's New Testament Commentary:


   Whence knowest thou me? Nathanael, who had never met Jesus before, was surprised to hear himself spoken of as one known.

  When thou wast under the fig tree. There was something about this answer that filled Nathanael with astonishment. Under the shade and shelter of the fig tree he had some rare experience that is not recorded, and that he supposed unknown to man. That Jesus knew of it and read his soul startled him and dissipated his unbelief.

 49 Nathanael <Nathanael> answered <apokrinomai> and <kai> saith <lego> unto him <autos>, Rabbi <rhabbi>, thou <su> art <ei> the Son <huios> of God <theos>; thou <su> art <ei> the King <basileus> of Israel <Israel>. (KJV)
 49 Nathanael answered him, "Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!" (RSV)
Mt 14:33; 21:5; 27:11,42; Joh 18:37; 19:3
ACC Barnes FBN JFB JWN PNTC RWP TFG TSK
People's New Testament Commentary:


   Thou art the Son of God; the King of Israel. Philip had said, "Jesus, the son of Joseph" [Joh 1:45], as he supposed, but Nathanael, convinced, declared him the Son of God. This is the first confession of the divinity of Jesus.

 50 Jesus <Iesous> answered <apokrinomai> and <kai> said <epo> unto him <autos>, Because <hoti> I said <epo> unto thee <soi>, I saw <eido> thee <se> under <hupokato> the fig tree <suke>, believest thou <pisteuo>? thou shalt see <optanomai> greater things <meizon> than these <touton>. (KJV)

(KJV)
 51 And he said to him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man." (RSV)

GBN ACC Barnes FBN JFB JWN PNTC RWP TFG TSK WBN
People's New Testament Commentary:


   Ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending. Jacob, old Israel, in his dream at Bethel, saw the ladder that reached to heaven with the angels upon it (Ge 28:12). Christ is that ladder, the way from earth to heaven, the way heaven sends messages to the world and the way we must go to reach it. Nathanael would be permitted to see that Jesus was the Mediator, that through him the Father speaks to man; that through him there is intercommunication between earth and heaven.

  2. PRACTICAL LESSONS FROM NATURE i. Open your eyes and look at newborn babies. Study them for a whole week. Who taught them to cry? Why do they cry? Watch them during breastfeeding. Who taught them to suck properly? Did you, or did their mothers teach them? Answer me, Oh man! ii. Look at babies everywhere, you were once like that, so learn to be humble and thank your father and mother if they are still alive! You were a helpless animal that a cat or a dog could have eaten raw, were it not for their paternal and maternal care! iii. There from, O arrogant creature learn the virtue of gratitude, it does not hurt you nor will it cost you anything more than to always say a loud “Thank You” all the rest of your short span of existence on this planet iv. Carry a baby and note that it looks you straight in the eyes and either smiles or begins to cry. If the latter, be sure you are a bad person or you looked aggressive. Babies are the best judges of character! So, learn to drop your worries and frowns when you approach others in life. v. Everyone else you meet has personal problems but they do not advertise them all the time, so why that scowl on your face? Smile at difficulties and so learn forbearance, tolerance and equanimity! There are virtues that you will need all the time! vi. Babies have weight as you must have noticed, and this increases as they feed well and grow. What makes them grow? How do they learn to sit, crawl, stand, and then walk? Answer me, oh Homo sapiens! Lord of the material universe! vii. Why does an object fall to the ground? Even when you throw objects far into the air, they return to the earth on which you stand. You may simply answer that it is because of the force of gravity, as you must have learnt by rote memory far back in elementary school. viii. But that answer was not so easy for the first men and women on earth! Prehistoric men once worshiped that magnetic phenomenon. So learn to investigate nature, discover new facts and share your knowledge with others. It is a fundamental lesson of life!
