The miracles were missing in the Earliest Gospel (this is why the Judaizers HATED Capernaum)

According to Mark (8:12), Jesus exclaims:

"Why does this generation ask for a sign? Verily I say unto you, no sign shall be given to this generation""


In the interest of the followers of John the Baptist, then, at least ONLY ONE miracle:


"A perverse and adulterous generation demands a sign! But no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah"

(Matthew 12:39).

Then, despite of MANY MIRACLES, some Christians continued to deny that Jesus did miracles:

"Woe to you, Corazin! Woe to you, Betsàida! And to you, Capernaum!"

Jesus would even go so far as to authorize people to perform miracles in His name (Mark 9:39), and the disciples and apostles did not deprive themselves of them.

Was Christ happy about the fact that his disciples did miracles, too ? Not at all, he was indignant about it:

"Many will say to me on that day: Have we not performed many miracles in your name? But I will say to them: I never knew you. Get away from me, you workers of iniquity!"

(Matthew 7:23)

Hence, I call all this: EVIDENCE of a resistance, inside the same Christian sect, against the invention of a Gospel Jesus author of miracles.


One may think that the Earliest Gospel did not contain miracles.

But why?

Because there was no need of miracles, in the Earliest Gospel.

If Jesus limited himself to descend in Sheol to reveal there his Good News, why should he do miracles there, in Sheol, afterall ?

Hence, no miracles of Jesus in Sheol.

But Sheol == Capernaum (per Heracleon).

Hence, the Judaizer who invented a Jesus author of many miracles, had to hate particularly Capernaum==Sheol, as "living symbol" of the Jesus who didn't miracles at all.

THE JUDAIZING RESULT:

Note the perverse irony of the Judaizers behind Matthew 11:23 :

instead of blessing Jesus for his descent in Sheol, as per the original Marcionite incipit:


The Year 15° of principate of Tiberius,
Jesus the Son of the God Chrestos
descended in the place of desolation (="Capernaum")

Image


...now there is a cursing of the same "Capernaum" in virtue of the descent of Capernaum itself in Sheol!

The Marcion's Sheol Myth (in his shortest form):
When Jesus descended into Hell, the sinners listened to his words and were all saved. But the saints, believing as usual that they were being put to the test, rejected his words and were all damned

...explains definitely why in the Nazareth episode (where Nazareth replaces Capernaum to give to Jesus a place of provenance on earth and not in heaven) the reason of the people rejecting Jesus is the mere fact that Jesus is a carpenter, inter alia.

Isn't this the carpenter? Isn't this Mary's son and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas and Simon? Aren't his sisters here with us?" And they took offense at him

(Mark 6:3)

Carpenter == Demiurge.

They were "believing as usual that they were being put to the test" by the "carpenter", i.e. YHWH: Jesus was a mere tempter sent by the bastard demiurge to test their fidelity. Hence, they didn't follow him and, as punition, they remained in Nazareth, i.e. in the previous Gospel, in Sheol (=Capernaum).

Hence, the true place where Jesus couldn't do miracles was Capernaum, i.e. Sheol.

...explains why Jesus freed Legion, without punishing them (their drowning in the lake being the Judaizing interpolation):
11 Now there was a large herd of swine feeding nearby on the mountain. 12 The demons implored Him, saying, “Send us into the swine so that we may enter them.” 13 Jesus gave them permission

(Mark 5:11-13)

The demon "Legion" were among "the sinners who listened to his words and were all saved".

Definitive evidence that in the Earliest Gospel Jesus worked only in Sheol:

In the Epistle of 12 Apostles, the preaching of Jesus on the Christian charity is found after the Resurrection and before the Ascension, not before the Passion.

This is 100% strongly expected if, in the Earliest Gospel, it is the Risen Christ who teaches in Sheol and/or on earth.

Another strong evidence that Mark can be rightly accused of having changed deliberately the order of the events of the Gospels, and in this sense the fool Christian apologist Papias was terribly CORRECT, comes from prof Bultmann:

Bultmann argued that the scene of Peter walking on waters to join Jesus walking on water, is a Resurrection episode.

I can easily imagine that it is against this Resurrection episode, one where Peter was perfectly able alone to reach Jesus by walking on water (or, at least, trying the effort), that the author of the Fourth Gospel invented the Resurrection episode where Jesus calls Peter while the latter was fishing in the lake, and Peter being totally unable to reach Jesus by walking on water.

Always Bultmann, the prof argued that the Evangelists have transposed before the Jesus any teaching received by the apostles after the resurrection of Jesus.

Is not this Bultmann's view the same my conclusion ? That Mark transformed the Risen Christ preaching in Sheol/earth in an Earthly Jesus preaching in earth.

Obviously, Bultmann was a Christian apologist insofar he couldn't accept that in the Earliest Gospel Jesus preached only in Sheol.

The reason Jesus was euhemerized is basically because he "has fallen from heaven". The confusion between Sheol and earth as the first place where he descended was decisive. For example, a similar mythological character who "has fallen from heaven" is Satan. The assumption, behind that expression, is that Satan was thrown into Hell. But what if people start to confuse earth with Hell as the first place where Satan was thrown? In the case of Jesus, the confusion between earth and Sheol was made more easy for the following reasons:
  • 1) "Capernaum", meaning "place of desolation" (i.e. Sheol), was believed to be "a city of Galilee"
  • 2) the celestial Jerusalem where Jesus ascended was believed to be the earthly Jerusalem
  • 3) the triumphal cross carried by Jesus during his ascension was believed to be a cross of torture where Jesus had still to die on (during his ascension to Golgotha), and not more the cross where he was already dead on (in outer space).
  • 4) idem for the "elegant robe" full of light he had to assume during his ascension: it was believed to be an elegant robe put by Herod
  • 5) the company of saved souls from Sheol were believed to be his disciples collected during his ascension to an earthly Jerusalem
  • 6) the OT souls of Sheol who rejected him were believed to be the scribes and pharises and the followers of John the Baptist who rejected him on earth.
Papias's words about Mark having changed the order of events is evidence of the surprise of a reader who knew both the versions.

Origen is a real Judaizer when he polemizes so against Heracleon's equation Capernaum==Sheol:

We have presented all these statements as to the Saviour's sayings and doings at Capernaum in order to refute Heracleon's interpretation of our passage, Hence He is not said to have done or to have spoken anything there. He must either give two meanings to Capernaum, and show us his reasons for them, or if he cannot do this he must give up saying that the Saviour visited any place to no purpose.

http://www.newadvent.org/fathers/101510.htm

Origen was embarrassed for the fact that, for the heretics, Jesus didn't miracles in Capernaum.

But also Matthew 11:23 is embarrassed for the same reason, real absence of miracles in Capernaum:

And you, Capernaum, will you be lifted to the heavens? No, you will go down to Hades. For if the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Sodom, it would have remained to this day.

The reason is that, insofar Capernaum==Sheol, Jesus didn't miracles in Sheol in the Earliest Gospel (=he left there at least half population: all the souls of the OT prophets). Hence, the Origen's and Matthew's embarrassment about "Capernaum" is really embarrassment about the Earliest Gospel.

  • 3) the triumphal cross carried by Jesus during his ascension was believed to be a cross of torture where Jesus had still to die on (during his ascension to Golgotha), and not more the cross where he was already dead on (in outer space).
That is the true reason behind the introduction of "Simon of Cyrene": if it was only Jesus alone to carry the cross, then someone could still see in that episode the original version of the Earliest Gospel: Jesus ascending to heaven with his cosmic cross of glory, a real triumph where the Roman soldiers could allegorize easily the Archons subjected to him during his ascension (just as Herod giving an "elegant robe" to Jesus).

While now, with the introduction of Simon of Cyrene, the cross is carried not more by Jesus: the episode ceases ipso facto to be a real triumph (destination: heaven) but a mere episode of torture.

Hence who introduced Simon of Cyrene was particularly interested to eclipse the previous, decisively more mythical, version of the Gospel.

The author of Colossians 2:15 knew the Earliest Gospel:

And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.

It is evident here that the cross in cause is a cross of triumph, a cross of glory, not a mere cross of torture. A Jesus bearer of that cross is a Jesus CONQUEROR who is ascending to heaven.
