Standard Christian Records

Post by Trees of Life »

Standard Christian records, with confirmatory continua for questioners to survey.


Diony Exiguus: Sunday, January Ist, A.D. 1

Jesus Christ: "I was born the same day on which Augustus Caesar gave peace to the Roman world.": The Archko Volume, Report of Pilate.

A peace-treaty was settled by Gaius consul for Rome and King Phrataces V of Parthia on an island on the Euphrates river, the border between the Roman empire and the Parthian empire, with terms prescribed that the Parthian army were to remain on their side of the Euphrates.

Cassius Dio LV 10

Nevertheless, war did not break out with the Parthians, either. For Phrataces, hearing that Gaius was in Syria, acting as consul [consul during A.D. 1], and, furthermore, having suspicions regarding his own people, who had even before this been inclined to be disloyal to him, forestalled action on their part by coming to terms with the Romans, on condition that he himself should renounce Armenia and that his brothers should remain beyond the sea.

A.D. 1

Ovid Book 1 286-310

" O Janus, let the peace and the
ministers of peace endure for aye, and grant that
its author may never forgo his handiwork.
But now for what I have been allowed to learn
from the calendar (Kalends, January 1) itself. On this day the senate
dedicated two temples. The island, which the (Euphrates) river
hems in with its parted waters, received him whom
the nymph Coronis bore to Phoebus. Jupiter has
his share of the site. One place found room for both,
and the temples of the mighty grandsire and the
grandson are joined together.

January 1, A.D. 1

'Angels singing a hymn at midnight' (in exaltation of birth of Jesus): Infancy Gospel of Matthew.

Midnight, Sunday, January 1, A.D.1

Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews, 14.487:

‹This destruction befell the city of Jerusalem when Marcus Agrippa and Caninius Gallus were consuls of Rome on the hundred eighty and fifth Olympiad, on the third month, on the solemnity of the fast as if a periodical revolution of calamities had returned since that which befell the Jews under Pompey;¹ for the Jews were taken by him on the same day, and this was after twenty seven years' time.›
Pompey conquered Jerusalem on Monday May 30 in 64 BC or on Monday Sivan 1st 3698, of the Hebrew calendar¹.
Herod and Sosius conquered Jerusalem on Monday May 31 37 BC or on Monday Sivan 1st 3725, of the Hebrew calendar¹.
Antiquities XVII Chapter 8 records that Herod died: ‹having reigned since he had procured Antigonus to be slain thirty four years: but since he had been declared King by the Romans thirty seven.›

A reign of thirty seven years from May 31 37 BCE marks 1 CE as the year of the death of Herod, which is in concordance with gospel records of Jesus Christ being born during the reign of Herod the Great —‹in the time of Herod the King›: The First Gospel of the Infancy of Jesus Christ; ‹in the days of Herod the king›, Gospel of Matthew 2:1
¹Calculation procedure: exact the Julian year's weekday, date, and lunar phase to provide its accordant Hebrew calendar year's weekday and date.


A.D. 31 Saturday, January 6, Epiphany

Gospel of Nicodemis:

Yeshua was baptised on the first sabbath at the end of his thirtieth year followed by two years, three months and three days for his ministry of A.D. 31, A.D.32 and A.D. 33, as discernible within the Gospel of John.

Apostolic Constitutions

XXXIII. I Peter and Paul do make the following constitutions. Let the slaves work five days; but on the Sabbath day and the Lord's day let them have leisure to go to church for instruction in piety. We have said that the Sabbath is on account of the creation, and the Lord's day of the resurrection. Let slaves rest from their work all the great week, and that which follows it — for the one in memory of the passion, and the other of the resurrection; and there is need they should be instructed who it is that suffered and rose again, and who it is permitted Him to suffer, and raised Him again. Let them have rest from their work on the Ascension, because it was the conclusion of the dispensation by Christ. Let them rest at Pentecost, because of the coming of the Holy Spirit, which was given to those that believed in Christ. Let them rest on the festival of His birth, because on it the unexpected favour was granted to men, that Jesus Christ, the Logos of God, should be born of the Virgin Mary, for the salvation of the world. Let them rest on the festival of Epiphany, because on it a manifestation took place of the divinity of Christ, for the Father bore testimony to Him at the baptism; and the Paraclete, in the form of a dove, pointed out to the bystanders Him to whom testimony was borne. Let them rest on the days of the apostles: for they were appointed your teachers to bring you to Christ, and made you worthy of the Spirit. Let them rest on the day of the first martyr Stephen, and of the other holy martyrs who preferred Christ to their own life.

Death on the Cross

A.D. 33 April 3, 3pm

Jesus was crucified on Friday at 3pm A.D. 33, the day before the Jewish high sabbath of April 4 , A.D. 33: Gospel of John 19:31, 'The next day would be both a Sabbath and the Passover.'

The Report of Pontius Pilate

Now when he was crucified darkness came over all the world; the sun was altogether hidden, and the sky appeared dark while it was yet day, so that the stars were seen, though still they had their lustre obscured, wherefore, I suppose your excellency is not unaware that in all the world they lighted their lamps from the sixth hour until evening. And the moon, which was like blood, did not shine all night long, although it was at the full, and the stars and Orion made lamentation.

The principal leaders of early Christianity were Peter, James of Zebedee and John of Zebedee:

Matthew 10:2

And these be the names of the twelve apostles; the first, Simon, that is called Peter, and Andrew, his brother; James of Zebedee, and John, his brother...

Matthew 17:1

And after six days Jesus took Peter, and James, and John, his brother, and led them aside into an high hill...

Mark 5:37

And he took no man to follow him [And he received not any man to follow him], but Peter, and James, and John, the brother of James.

Mark 9:2

And after six days Jesus took Peter, and James, and John, and led them by themselves alone [and leadeth them by themselves alone] into an high hill; and he was transfigured before them.

Mark 13:3

And when he sat in the mount of Olives against the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him by themselves...

Mark 14:33

And he took Peter and James and John with him, and began to dread, and to be distressed.

Luke 5:10

Soothly in like manner James and John, the sons of Zebedee, that were fellows of Simon Peter [which were fellows of Simon Peter]. And Jesus said to Simon, Do not thou dread; now from this time thou shalt take men.

Luke 6:14

Simon, whom he called Peter, and Andrew, his brother, James and John, Philip and Bartholomew...
Luke 8:51
And when he came to the house, he suffered no man to enter with him, but Peter and John and James, and the father and the mother of the damsel.

Luke 9:28

And it was done after these words almost eight days, and he took Peter and James and John, and he ascended into an hill, to pray.

Acts 1:13

And when they were entered into the house, where they dwelled, they went up into the solar [And when they had entered into the supping place, they went up into the higher things, where they dwelt], Peter and John, and James and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, James of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas of James.

Galatians 2:9

and when they had known the grace of God, that was given to me, James, and Peter, and John, which were seen to be the pillars, they gave the right hand of fellowship to me and to Barnabas, that we among the heathen, and they into the circumcision...
Peter, James and John are listed in their particular order throughout the Gospel to signify that they were principal disciples/administrators of the Christian sect.
Jesus Christ made Peter, James and John his principal apostles, for they set the standard representing the attributes of Father, Son and Holy Ghost, as in Galatians 2:9: 'James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars', where Peter/Cephas is chief pillar in the centre, with James on his right and John on his left.
The three chosen archbishops ruled the church from Jerusalem, Rome, and Ephesus. They remained in their roles until circa A.D. 69, A.D. 70 and A.D. 100.
James the first bishop of Jerusalem, that ruled the church from A.D. 33 to A.D. 70, was not a uterine or familial brother of Jesus Christ as can be discerned in his Apocalypse literature:

James' Apocalypse:

"Once when I was sitting deliberating, he opened the door. That one whom you hated and persecuted came in to me. He said to me, "Hail, my brother; my brother, hail." As I raised my face to stare at him, (my) mother said to me, "Do not be frightened, my son, because he said 'My brother' to you (sg.). For you (pl.) were nourished with this same milk. Because of this he calls me "My mother". For he is not a stranger to us. He is your step-brother [...]."

This James, not being James the Less and family of Jesus, as a consequence was surprised at the brotherly greeting, and so James' mother explained their milk-kinship, signifying that this James, first bishop of Jerusalem, was termed a brother by Yeshua the Lord, consonant within Christian archives in which James the bishop is surnamed, 'the brother of the Lord' and 'the Lord's brother'.

In juxtaposition, in Acts 12:2, on account of their milk-kinship, the James archived there is termed, James the brother of John — in continua¹, James the Less/James, son of Alphaeus/James, brother of Judas/James, son of Joseph the Carpenter.

For James son of Zebedee to be consigned to Acts 12:2, there is the discontinuity of A.D. 44 for that year of death, yet he is living in A.D. 62, as discernible in The Assumption of the Virgin where evidentiary discourse from the assemblage at the Virgin Mary's departure resolves any discrepancies for the datum: 9 am Sunday January 3 A.D. 62 — the hour, day month and year of the departure of the Virgin Mary. Percipients recognize this datum via Peter: " it has been sixteen years since we have gone forth " + " after twelve years, go out into the world " [The Preaching of Peter]. This is achieved here: April 3 A.D. 33 crucifixion + 12 years attaining April A.D. 45 + 16 years attaining April A.D. 61. John supernaturally arrived at the departure of the Virgin after being summoned while preaching on the ' Lords Day ' [his birthday, January 1] and three days later Mary died about the third hour on the Lord's day, Sunday.

In the discourse of Mary and the apostles they identify James son of Zebedee esoterically: 'The Jews hated James on account of him being called the Lord's brother' + 'James the blessed apostle, who was surnamed the brother of the our Lord' + ' being one of the sons of thunder' + ' ye the three of whom he took with him to the mountain'.

Re: " Galatians 2:9: 'James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars', where Peter/Cephas is chief pillar in the centre, with James on his right and John on his left."

Is that interpretation attested anywhere in Christian tradition, ancient or modern (prior to your presentation of it above)?
