Another example of Giuseppe's tenuous and flimsy evidence:
Bar-Abbas was the Jewish name given to the bastards, i.e. the natural sons of unknown father, just as in the World of Westeros Snow is the name of the bastards.
No it wasn't. A bastard, a mamzerim
or a man whose father was unknown would be referred by his mother's name. The most readily available example of this is Yeshu ben Stada, or Son of Stada, his mother. And this extends to when the child was a bastard and the father was known, he would be referred to by the suspected father (Yeshu ben Pandera). The fact that ben Stada/ben Pandera were the Jewish names for Jesus Christ, and that Matthew
unambiguously is aware of the notorious nature of Christ's parentage, is the final piece of evidence that disproves your entire theory.
Bar Abbas was a common Jewish name in the first and second centuries. Are you telling me there were a whole bunch of men named bastard
walking around? Abbas also means teacher and it would be seen as a sign of respect to be called of the Teacher
He went away from there and came to his hometown, and his disciples followed him. And on the Sabbath he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were astonished, saying, “Where did this man get these things? What is the wisdom given to him? How are such mighty works done by his hands Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary...
We're not talking about God awful pseudo-LOTR by a lazy writer who let fame and fortune go to his head and arse. We're talking about Jewish culture. But maybe you don't know the difference between the two?
This view is given without reference by Jean Radermakers, S. J., Au fil de l'Evangile selon saint Matthieu, 2, s° ed. p. 342.
Then why the hell are you using it?
Barabbas was the bastard, the natural son of an unknown father.
Not only is there zero early Christian exegeses that even imply such a thing, everything proves that Barabbas was 1) not known as a bastard, 2) not a parody of Marcionism, 3) was in fact known as a symbol for the scapegoat.
You're done. You're a liar; a deceitful and useful idiot playing on the ignorance of others with your obscurantist rhetoric.
