How were Philo of Alexandria and the ancient bible writers deceived Christians? More specifically, how were they able to arrive at a Greek name Ἰησοῦς (Iēsous), which is the Greek origin of Jesus, as the alleged name of the messiah?
In a search for historical Iēsous and Mary Magdalene, The Nazarean Way Internet Ministry and The Essene-Nazarean Church of Mount Carmel in Missouri reported:
“In 2002 we spotted a clue in Luke’s Gospel: a Pythagorean Sacred Number. A simple Internet search for “First Century Pythagoreans” led to Philo of Alexandria whom Clement called “The Pythagorean.” Philo taught a method of biblical interpretation that was known to and practiced by the Essenes.
Fifteen years of Following Philo–pulling threads from ancient texts, inscriptions, marble busts, and other artifacts – led to the history hidden in myths and fictions. “The Nazarean and the Magdalene” were not what we expected – in fact, they are much betterthat we expected. Their work promoting compassion for the poor and love for humankind lasted decades longer than anyone has ever known. “Saulus known as Paulus” was much worse than we expected, and we’ve never held out much hope for his loyalty to the message delivered by The Nazarean and The Magdalene.
But each of you will have to judge for yourself. Some, I fear, may be too attached to long-held perceptions of “Yeshua” to be able to let go of Him. We must confess that we bear the blame for promoting some of these misperceptions. In the beginning stages of our research, I refused to believe some of what we found, evidence that challenged our longest-held and most treasured conclusions. But the evidence grew until it became overwhelming and indisputable. I had to accept it, and the time has come to share it.
For example, He was called many names; but, He was never called “Jesus,” “Yeshua” or “Yehoshua.” The Gnostic Gospel of Philip explains:
“Iēsous” is a hidden name, “Christ” is a revealed name. For this reason “Iēsous” is not particular to any language; rather he is always called by the name “Iēsous.” While as for “Christ,” in Syriac it is “Messiah,” in Greek it is “Christ.” Certainly all the others have it according to their own language.”
“The Nazarean” is “he who reveals what is hidden.”
In other words, no matter the language spoken – Hebrew, Aramaic, Latin, Greek, et. al. – “He is always called by the name ‘Iēsous,’” pronounced YaH-Zeus; He was never called the common Jewish names “Joshua,” “Yeshua,” or “Yehoshua.” His name is “Iēsous” and it identifies the members of just one Royal Family prominent in Jewish history.
This well-known family of Israelites and Romans devised a plan to peacefully unite those who worshipped YHWH and those who worshipped Zeus. The solution: One family, descendants of the Sumerian and Babylonian “First Parents,” Ansar (“Heaven Prince”) and Kisar (“Earth Mother”). Their son was called “eNLiL” and his “sister-wife” was called “NiNLiL.”
Enlil’s equivalent is the Hebrew word translated throughout the Old Testament as “God.” The word is LH, rendered “eLoaH.” Gen 1:1 alludes to him, but it does not name him. However, the “God” and “Goddess” can be found in Genesis 1:1: the Hebrew word LHM is not “God” because the suffix “IM,” creates the plural, “Gods.”
But LHM can also be used to create the words, “El Ha Em,” and the correct translation for these words is, “El the Mother” – “Goddess Mother.” “Eloah” and “El the Mother” are the “Elohim” (Gen 1:1). They “came down to from a star, identified in Gen 1:1 as “Istar,” or “Venus.” And their superior intelligence and technology led to the belief that they were “God” and “Goddess -Mother.”
The name chosen for the descendants of the First Father of Earthlings and his Sons unites YHWH and Zeus: He was called “YaH-Zeus.” In biblical Hebrew, the Daughters of the First Mother of Earthlings were called “BaT eL Ha eM” (“daughter of El the Mother”). In OT stories they are introduced next to a well or a spring getting water their flocks. Rachel was among the first, and her burial, marked by a pillar (Gen 35:19-21), reveals the genesis of “The Magdalene.” In Biblical Hebrew, “Watchtower of the Flock” (Gen 35:21), is MGDL DR”.
(Note: Only the issue on the validity of the name is in issue in this article).
In short, the findings propose that the name Iēsous, being pronounced as (Yah-Zeus) is a combination of YHWH and Zeus, which is now being revealed. Because before, it was hidden, as allegedly explained in the gnostic Gospel of Philips, as follows:
“Iēsous” is a hidden name, “Christ” is a revealed name. For this reason “Iēsous” is not particular to any language; rather he is always called by the name “Iesous.” While as for “Christ,” in Syriac it is “Messiah,” in Greek it is “Christ.” Certainly all the others have it according to their own language.”
“The Nazarean” is “he who reveals what is hidden.””
Based on the above findings, while Christians would readily accept the name Iēsous, which is the Greek origin of Jesus, as the name of the messiah without hesitation, logic would simply reveal that the name was just created by ancient writers to appease the conflicting Jews and Romans, with no Hebrew or Aramaic origin, at all, because Zeus was never one of the gods of the Israelites or there was no combination of the two names at the time the messiah was born until he was crucified. Also, this would indicate how Philo of Alexandria and other ancient writers underestimated the importance of the name of Christ, by replacing it with combination of YHWH and Zeus.
To stress, the intent in combining the two names as reported, states:
“This well-known family of Israelites and Romans devised a plan to peacefully unite those who worshipped YHWH and those who worshipped Zeus. The solution: One family, descendants of the Sumerian and Babylonian “First Parents,” Ansar (“Heaven Prince”) and Kisar (“Earth Mother”). Their son was called “eNLiL” and his “sister-wife” was called “NiNLiL.”
In short, the name Iēsous was just created by well-known family of Israelites, which include the family of Philo of Alexandria, and the Romans.
Therefore, it is grave error to believe in the name Iēsous as the messiah’s name and more erroneous to believe on the name Jesus because in the latter, the ‘Yah’ is eliminated. Thus, the belief on the name Jesus is very fatal because Christians are eliminating the name of God of Israel to finally promote only the name of the Greek pagan god Zeus.
