Marsuas (Barabbas) was shackled by Apollo (Pilate) pending punishment, but managed to escape his gruesome fate through the protection of Liber Pater (לבראבב), to embark on a new life in Italy. hence Barabbas and Barnabas.
Bullshit.

I am sorry, but you don't pass the Barabbas text (as explained by Couchoud) ergo your commentary is wrong.

For the parallels between Barabbas and Marduk too work, you need intermediaries, It seems unlikely that authors of the New Testament had access too Babylonian literature, if they did, they probably burnt them all.

Rome took over and adapted to it's own uses, all sorts of Greek categories of culture, philosophy, rhetoric, history, epics, tragedy, art
and architecture , Roman borrowed everything from Greeks and modified Greek mythologies for there own purposes and propaganda and they did the same with the Phoenician Jewish culture and produced the New Testament.

If you read this thread entirely (and not only the first post), then you will know that for me also the parallel with Marduk is bullshit since it doesn't pass the Barabbas test as explained by Couchoud.

In liberis civitatibus simulacrum Marsyae erat, qui in tutele Liberi patris est
