The Book of Luke, Chapter 24: Read it and weep, Christians...

Luke 24:39-41 Bible photo

This is from the Book of Luke, Chapter 24, after the Crucifixion of Chapter 23.  Verses 39 to 41 are the cause of peptic ulcers among clergy.  Christ is not a spirit.  He eats, he has mass.  Physical mass, that is.  (Why was celebrating his life in church named mass?)  Simon is awaiting in Heaven in verse 34.  Remember Simon the Cyrenian?  He carried Christ’s cross, and in the midst of a complete solar eclipse, was likely the fall guy for crowd-admired Jesus.  This is not taken out of context, this directly follows the chronology of the gospel of Luke.  The Bible does not skip around chronologically, like Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction.


Astronomy software displaying the Crucifixion Eclipse of April 17th, 33AD.

Christ’s birth was decided to be on December 25th.  There weren’t calendars back then, so his birthdate had to be a guess.  His crucifixion though, occured precisely on April 17th, 33AD.  This is a Friday, Good Friday, the day he supposedly was executed.  In Luke, Chapter 23, there is a full solar eclipse on this date in Jerusalem, one occurring every eighteen years in a cycle called the Saros; and one verifiable by astronomy software (such as free, shareware, Stellarium).  The exact quote from verses 44 and 45 is:

[44] And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.
[45] And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.

How on Earth did I discover this?  A full solar eclipse happened on a Friday, in Jerusalem, in Christ’s 33rd year, around Easter.  I uncovered the Bible passage, because I was drawn to the crucifixion, and the Book of Luke was the most revealing and interesting.  How would you think I discovered this? —OMG!  M*th*rf*ck*r yes!!

Then People Magazine, and 60 Minutes shows up with this: “Are you out to destroy the word of Jesus the Christ?”  “You know, Leslie, I’m generally okay with Jesus, but I have real, real issue with what remains of his original teachings, with the Vatican especially.

“They are a tax-exempt hate group openly against women’s reproductive rights, and women’s rights in general, as well as being homophobic.  Strangely, President Biden, and every Republican, belongs to this hate group.”

Ms. Stahl begins her third degree with: “You are only okay with Jesus?”  Which I shut down with: “He promoted love, he’s generally a force for good.  When asked if he was the king of the Jews though, he did say, ‘If you say I am [thou sayest it].’  That was wrong.  That, and “He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.”  Both bespeak of puffery — the latter easily construed as offering a ticket to heaven for devotion to Christ.”

“As I keep proving, Leslie, he did not die on the cross.  He begs for meat after his expected execution.  Christ was a mortal.”  9/07/22.

According to the Bible, Christ was mortal...

The Roe v. Wade reversal is not the work of Christ, it is the work of a church far removed from Jesus’ original vision of peace on earth, or of a world concerned about mutual survival.

One of Christ’s primary messages was, “Love one another,” which is cited thirteen times in the New Testament.  Without modern law enforcement, violence could often be a means to an end, so his admonishment to love must have been very welcome.

Then Christ can be celebrated as a spiritual leader, except that he survived his planned crucifixion, which flies in the face of religious dogma and puffery, and makes him a mortal   There is uncontrovertible evidence in Luke Chapter 24:39-41, post-Crucifixion:

[39] Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.
[40] And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.
[41] And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat?

Spirits do not require the food that Jesus the Christ apparently is begging to eat.  After giving up the ghost, any ghost is not made of flesh and blood.  Ergo, post-Crucifixion, Jesus the Christ was mortal.

Simon the Cyrenian was compelled to carry Jesus’ cross by the very interested mob who likely rooted on Christ as potential challenger to overarching Roman power.  The crucifixion was scheduled during a total solar eclipse, guaranteeing maximum effect.

Luke in 23:44-45, writes of a three-hour “darkness all over the earth.”  There was a total solar eclispe in Jerusalem, on April 17th, 33AD.  This contention is fully supported by both the Bible, in Luke 23, and astronomy software, like Stellarium.

In Mark 15:34, Simon cried (based on Luke 24, this could not be Christ):

“Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”

This is likely the only non-English phrasing in the entire New Testament.

Titian’s Simon the Cyrenian

The true believer can likely put aside Christ begging for food post-Crucifixion.  The devout will try to forget that their Christ did not carry his own cross.  Then, as a preacher, Christ is on record with: Not being judgemental; loving one another; forgiving trespassers (even turning the other cheek, if that is even possible); a rejection of materialism; and a ticket to Heaven for following his path (which I am sure that Jews have had a field day with as self-promotion, and not as an illusory, waiting prize).

His current churches have major issues, they plot to circumscribe women’s bodily antonomy, they have it in for gays and lesbians, and there are more parts of the current faith that Jesus would likely never endorse, including sheltering pedophile priests from civil authorities.

The second consideration precluding veneration, as seen in Luke 24, is that Christ did not die for anyone’s sins, because he did not die.  He is not supernatural, he is a philosopher of great renown, or renown among converted Christians.

Others see a grand spectacle of his ministry, that amounts more to spectacle than to the work of God.  Especially today, as the Church is used to condemn non-believers to believe what they cannot, such as that fetuses are people.  7/03/22.

Pope Francis must wish he was Jewish...

The pontiff is apologizing to native Canadians for atrocities committed by his church.  While the Pope is obviously not responsible for brutal assimilation of first settlers, his Vatican pushes the end of reproductive services for all women.

Can we be so sure that the Pope’s agenda is the same as the official Vatican, populist agenda?  Promote human kindness, or promote the end of a medical procedure that women often desperately need?

Francis (Jorge Mario Bergoglio was his name before it was anglicized) must have his doubts about the good his ministry does for humanity.  I would even suggest he would have rather led worshippers of an earlier god, Jehovah, the one Jews followed.

Unfortunately, the Catholic faith gets more than their share of reactionaries, ones opposing social change, in favor of what they believe is unquestionably-true dogma.


Sadly for all concerned, Francis has again been complicit with hiding documents, he has yet to release the files detailing the abuse north of the border.  His Church is not a happy place.  Pedophile priest cases aren’t handed over to civilian authorities, and Catholic schools up North really did a number on an entire culture, besides sexually abusing native Canadian children.

As I have already said on this website: Christ isn’t the problem, Christianity is.  Christ would be rolling over in his grave, or spitting down from the clouds, knowing how awfully his message has been corrupted, and rehashed to gain popular appeal.

The Vatican takes a cause célèbre and gets the faithful to rally round this cross.  The cross to bear was to forcefully proselytize indigenous Canadians, now it is to deny women reproductive rights.

Catholics are confused as to when embryos are no longer such.  Embryos are not people.  Embryos cannot be murdered, they do not appear in censuses as children.  Francis’ Catholics believe they can vote away a woman’s bodily autonomy with referendums, votes for politicians, or judicial appointments.

Francis’ Vatican is the same institution that backed the Inquisition, and burned witches to the stake, as during the Middle Ages.  But the reason why the Pope would be so ashamed of his Church today, is that this Canadian evil occurred as recently as the 1970s.  This cultural assimilation was done while he was a vicar, and further, stealing women’s reproductive rights is being done while he is the Pope.

What is so galling, is that the Vatican is run by old men, who are all virgins.  Pope Francis decides women’s rights, without quite knowing what a woman really is, without ever being intimate with one.

Okay, that’s probably a bit too harsh, but I get the impression that Pope Francis is too good of a person (and too intelligent) to back these oddball sanctions against women.  Abortion existed in the time of Christ, and he did not say a word about it then, why is his Church’s main mission today, to end this highly-valued medical procedure?  7/31/22.
