Mark Chapters 4 through 5 - Christogenea on Talkshoe 10-21-2011

Here tonight we shall see, when we get to Mark chapter 5, that there are a couple of discrepancies in the chronology of events between Mark and Matthew, where Luke agrees with Mark, which are difficult to resolve. These do not, however, discredit the Gospel, once we realize the nature of the Gospel accounts and their purpose. At this point, Mark chapters 4 and 5 contains events found in Luke chapters 8 and 9, and also in Matthew chapters 8 and 9.

IV 1 And again He began to teach by the sea, and a very large crowd gathers to Him, so as for Him boarding into a vessel to sit in the sea, and all the crowd was by the sea upon the land.

In the ancient Greek world, it was very common for teachers of philosophy to have many followers, and to teach people in diverse places. In Acts chapter 19:9, we see a certain school of philosophy mentioned. Such schools were begun by private individuals who would attract - or perhaps already had – adherents to their philosophy. Sophists, Platonists, Epicureans, Stoics, Cynics, Gnostics, there were many different types of philosophical beliefs in the world at that time, and each had many followers and many teachers. Therefore if Christ had a few dozen followers, He would never have been so despised by the religious authorities in Judea, since it was quite normal for a philosopher to have and be followed by a few dozen students. Yet if Christ had hundreds, then hundreds more would have joined the crowd simply out of curiosity, if for nothing else, and it is not hard to imagine that there were thousands of people at many of His gatherings. By this, the official authorities would indeed feel threatened.

Mark Chapters 2 through 3 - Christogenea on Talkshoe 10-14-2011

II 1 And entering again into Kapharnaoum, for days it was heard that He is in a house. 2 And many had gathered together so as no longer to have space, not even there by the door, and He spoke the Word to them. 3 And they come bringing to Him a paralytic being carried by four men. 4 And not being able to bring him forth to Him because of the crowd, they had taken off the roof where He was, and digging through lowered the cot upon which the paralytic laid. 

The men with the paralytic had “taken off the roof” and then “digging through” it they lowered the paralytic to where Christ was. The roof being described must be a thatched roof covered with ceramic tile, and the version of this account at Luke 5:19 tells us they were ceramic tiles. The tiles were expensive and surely were not broken. Digging trough the thatching must have made a mess, clouds of dust and dirt and straw dropping into the room below. Yet Christ did not take umbrage to the situation. Rather, He marveled before the crowd.

Mark Chapter 1 - Christogenea on Talkshoe 10-07-2011

There is nothing at all in the Gospel of Mark which explicitly indicates its authorship. However many of the earliest Christian writers have not only attributed the gospel to Mark, but have also said that Mark recorded Peter's testimony, even calling him “Peter's interpreter”, in the words of the second-century Christian presbyter Irenaeus. This seems to indicate that Mark wrote the Greek which Peter may have related to him in Hebrew, however such a viewpoint is not entirely necessary, and the word may have simply been used more loosely of a transcriber and not necessarily of a translator. In other words, the statement does not by itself prove that Peter was not bilingual. Peter is mentioned 19 times in Mark's gospel, but that is not too frequent since he is mentioned just as often in Luke, and even more often in the gospels of Matthew and John. Yet in one place there is a special mention of Peter, where there really need not have been, and that is at 16:5-7 where it describes the women arriving at the tomb of Christ: “5 And having entered into the tomb they saw a youth sitting on the right clothed in a white robe, and they were astounded. 6 Then he says to them: 'Do not be astonished! You seek Yahshua the Nazarene who had been crucified. He has arisen, He is not here! Behold the place where they laid Him! 7 But you go tell His students and Petros that He goes on before you into Galilaia. There you shall see Him, just as He said to you!'” This special mention of Peter seems to support the testimony that the man who related the account to its writer was indeed Peter himself. Here are some of the ancient testimonies concerning the authorship of this gospel:

Comments written on January 26th, 2017, as I begin to prepare a more formal presentation of Malachi:

Back in September of 2011 Christogenea had a server crash. At that time we had only 2 servers, the second one was very small, and it took all week to put the main server and websites back together again. We had little sophistication at that early time, and no online backups. So come Friday, whereas we had no time to prepare a program, we did an extemporaneous presentation of Malachi. Now, over six years later, we can finally endeavor to present a fuller commentary for this wonderful book of prophecy.

In our first Malachi presentation, we may have been more specific in some areas, we were not quite as accurate as we would have like to have been in others, especially concerning when it was that Malachi had prophesied. We could have also elaborated to a greater extent on many details. Now we pray that we can atone for at least some of our shortcomings.

Matthew Chapter 28 - Christogenea on Talkshoe 09-23-2011

Before we get into the final chapter of Matthew, chapter 28, it may be fitting to discuss just why it is that Christians should believe in a resurrection. There are many supposed Christians who have rejected the notion of the resurrection, shamed by so-called science – mistakenly believing that the science of man should be able to explain everything and anything, and therefore whatever it cannot explain cannot be true. This is the folly of humanism, which believes that man is god, and therefore anything that man cannot understand is fiction. Their own evolution theory is of course an exception to this. In truth, man is not god, and the true God will not be mocked.

If we believe that God created the heavens and the earth, and it is absolute folly to believe that they were created by chance, then we must by necessity believe that God transcends the physical creation as we know it. If we believe that Adamic man was created in the image of God and bears His spirit, then we can imagine that Adamic man can also transcend the physical world as God does. In the Wisdom of Salomon, at 2:23, it says: “For God created man to be immortal, and made him to be an image of his own eternity.” If God has no efficacy in the reality of creation, then our faith is vain. As Paul told the Corinthians, “If only in this life have we had hope in Christ, we are the most pitiable of all mankind.” (1 Corinthians 15:19)

If we are Adamic men, then we have that spirit which Yahweh breathed into Adam, and we shall live even after the death of the body, and we cannot die. Christ said at John 6:63: “It is the Spirit which produces life, the flesh does not benefit anything. The words which I have spoken to you are Spirit and are life.” We will see more of the life-producing spirit when we discuss 1 Corinthians chapter 15 from verse 35 below.

Paul tells the Romans in his epistle to them at 1:18-23: “18 For the wrath of Yahweh is revealed from heaven upon all profane and unjust men, who withhold the truth with injustice. 19 Because that which is to be known of Yahweh is visible among them, since Yahweh has made it known to them. 20 Namely, the unseen things of His from the creation of the order are clearly observed, being understood in the things made both of His eternal power and divinity; for this they are inexcusable. 21 Because knowing Yahweh, they thought of Him not as God, nor were they thankful; but they became foolish in their reasonings, and were darkened, their hearts void of understanding: 22 alleging to be wise they became fools, 23 and they changed the estimation of the incorruptible Yahweh into a resemblance of an image of corruptible man, and birds, and four-legged animals, and reptiles.” Humanism is actually an age old error. Paul said in Hebrews 11:3 that: “By faith we perceive the ages to be furnished by the word of Yahweh, in which that which is seen has not come into being from things [which are] visible” Paul was a proto-physicist. We know that it is true, that “that which is seen has not come into being from things visible”. Yet that does not mean that we have all of the answers. All matter is energy, and therefore our consciences are also energy, and they exist apart from and independent of our bodies, as even the apostles tell us at 2 Corinthians chapter 12 or in the Revelation in chapters 1 or 4.

Matthew Chapter 27, Part 2

Christogenea on Talkshoe – September 16th, 2011 – Matthew Chapter 27, Part 2

I think of the Nuremberg trials, or the fate of Sylvia Stolz, or see what they did to Germar Rudolf and Udo Walendy and Robert Faurisson, and a thousand other unjust railroadings in this day, and I think of the trials of Christ. Taken by force in the middle of the night by a mob of so-called officials, the jewish tyranny often operates in much the same way today, which is the same way as the bolsheviks also operated in Soviet Russia. Wherever you find jews, you find tyranny and oppression conducted in the name of justice.

This is the twenty-second week of our presentation and discussion of the Gospel of Matthew. It will require at least one more week after tonight to bring it to completion. Last week we left off with Matthew chapter 27, verses 20 through 23, and we shall commence by repeating those tonight.

24 And Pilatos, seeing that nothing helps, but rather a tumult arises, taking water washed the hands before the crowd, saying “I am innocent from the blood of this man! You see to it!” 25 And responding all the people said: “His blood is upon us, and upon our children!” 26 Then he released Barabbas for them, but having scourged Yahshua he handed Him over in order that He would be crucified.

Discussing these circumstances at the end of last week's program, we focused on the situation that Pilate was in, and how it was difficult for him to avoid handing Yahshua Christ over to their desires. To me, this situation of Pilate's encapsulates something which has been a dilemma for our race since the beginning: the failure of man to properly confront evil, in exchange preferring love of the world and one's own comfort. Indeed, Pilate may have resisted the blood-thirty desires of the jews, but then he would have had to deal with their riotous behaviour and all of the political fallout which would certainly have followed. Christ Himself certainly understood Pilate's situation, and therefore said that “he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin”, as we read at John 19:11 in the discourse between Christ and Pilate which Matthew did not record.

Let us consider these verses from Psalm 26 in consideration of Pilate: ”5 I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked. 6 I will wash mine hands in innocency: so will I compass thine altar, O LORD:”

But that is only half of what is going on in these few verses, where we also see the jews exclaim that “His blood is upon us, and upon our children!” Pilate washed his hands of the blood of Christ, denying any responsibility for it (an act also found in Scripture at Deuteronomy 21:6 and Psalm 73:13 as well as Psalm 26:6 and elsewhere, so we see this same idea in Hebrew and in Roman culture), and so the jews in turn accepted full responsibility. It may be fitting at this point to read the 22nd Psalm, since it is related to both these things and to the events which are to follow shortly after:

Christogenea on Talkshoe – September 9th, 2011 – Matthew Chapter 27

Last week, among many other things that were evidenced while discussing Matthew chapter 26, we saw from the prophecy in Zechariah chapter 11 a direct connection between the thirty silver pieces for which Christ was betrayed to His enemies and the breaking of the Covenant which Yahweh made with the people, meaning of course the people of Israel. This is found at Zechariah 11:10-13, where it says: “10 And I took my staff, even Beauty, and cut it asunder, that I might break my covenant which I had made with all the people. 11 And it was broken in that day: and so the poor of the flock that waited upon me knew that it was the word of the LORD. 12 And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver. 13 And the LORD said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prised at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of the LORD.” While it was discussed in brief here last week, Zechariah chapter 11 itself requires a full study (which shall not be done here presently), because of ambiguities, and because of differences in the Masoretic text as it compares with the Septuagint version. Furthermore, the Brenton translation of the Septuagint Greek of this chapter is also wanting – or can at least be contested - in various places. Yet all of the versions agree on this one thing: that the covenant was broken, and the thirty pieces of silver are connected to that act.

Now it can be asserted and proven, that the old covenant which Yahweh made with the children of Israel at Mount Sinai beginning with Exodus chapter 19 was a covenant equivalent to a marriage contract between Yahweh and Israel, with God as the Husband and the entire nation of the body of Israel as the Bride. That this is a proper interpretation is evidenced in Isaiah, Jeremiah, Hosea, the epistles of Paul, and many other places. That old covenant being eternal, and within the laws of marriage set forth by God, the only way that it could be broken was with the death of either the Husband or the Bride. Since Yahweh promised that a new covenant would be made with Israel and Judah, for instance in Jeremiah chapter 31 and Ezekiel chapters 34 and 37, that would also necessitate the breaking of the old covenant, as Paul explains in Hebrews chapter 8, where he also quotes from Jeremiah. So we see that the fulfillment of the old covenant, its completion (which is the meaning of the Greek word which the King James Version often translates as fulfillment), took place on the cross of Christ as Paul explains in Romans chapter 7.

Christogenea on Talkshoe – September 2nd, 2011 – Matthew Chapter 26

 

Finishing the discourse of Christ concerning the destruction of Jerusalem, and of the time of the end, and of His return, which is contained in Matthew chapters 24 and 25, hopefully we saw how these things which He said, and the parables which He left us concerning the troublous times, the ten virgins, the wicked servant, and the sheep and the goat nations, all meshed with the many other prophecies concerning those same things, and that at the end of days and the return of Christ, all of His enemies are destroyed, and in the end there are none left but the sheep. This is the true promise of Christianity, when we shall indeed have heaven on earth, which is what Christians everywhere should pray for incessantly just as Yahshua Christ Himself had instructed us to pray, that things be “on earth as they are in heaven” when His kingdom comes. And it shall indeed come. Here we shall proceed with Matthew chapter 26

XXVI 1 And it came to pass that when Yahshua had finished all these sayings, He said to His students: 2 “You know that after two days it shall be Passover, and the Son of Man is handed over for which to be crucified!”

 

First, here we see Matthew tell us that now Yahshua had “ had finished all these sayings”, so we see that this marks the end of the discourse which began at the beginning of Matthew chapter 24 where the apostles had initially asked Him about the pending destruction of Jerusalem and the time of the end.

 

3 At that time the high priests and the elders of the people gathered together in the court of the high priest who is called Kaïaphas, 4 and they took counsel that with guile they shall seize and kill Yahshua. 5 But they said: “Not on the feast, in order that there would not be a tumult among the people!”

 

Their actual counsel was not recorded by Matthew, but it was recorded by John, at 11:47-53: “47 Then the high priests and the Pharisees gathered a council and said “What do we do, seeing that this man makes many signs? 48 If we should leave Him thusly, they shall all believe in Him, and the Romans shall come and they shall take both our place and our nation!” 49 Then a certain one from among them, Kaiaphas, being high priest that year, said to them: “You do not know anything, 50 nor do you consider that it is advantageous to you that one man should die on behalf of the people, and the whole nation not be lost.” 51 (Yet he did not say this by himself, but being high priest that year he prophesied that Yahshua was about to die on behalf of the nation, 52 and not only on behalf of the nation, but that also He would gather into one the children of Yahweh who had been dispersed.) 53 Therefore from that day they determined that they would kill Him.”

Christogenea on Talkshoe – August 26th, 2011 – Matthew Chapter 25

Last week we covered Matthew chapter 24 and the Scriptures which discuss the abomination of desolation, “spoken of by Daniel the prophet”, which refers to several prophecies in Daniel chapters 11 and 12. We saw that the term reads “abomination which maketh desolate” in some manuscripts in some places in Daniel. The periods of time in prophetic days given by Daniel for this may be interpreted so that this abomination may be tied to both Mohammedanism & Judaism, and the Zionist Judaism which gave us the artificial Israeli state in 1948 in particular. Both Mohammedanism and Judaism, I believe, are Satanic religions devised by the jews, who have absconded the Old Testament and have abused the oracles of God for their own purposes.

We also discussed at length the prophecy by Christ concerning the budding of the fig tree, when it shoots forth its branches, and how that must have referred to that fig tree that was cursed by Christ. Let us read the parable of the fig tree, from Luke chapter 13: 6 Then He spoke this parable: “A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit in it and found none. 7 And he said to the vine-dresser, ‘Look, it is three years from which I have come seeking fruit in this fig tree and I find none. Cut it down, for why should the land be useless?’ 8 But answering he says to him: ‘Master, leave it this year also, until when I should dig around it and cast manure 9 and so then it may produce fruit in the future, but otherwise if not, you shall cut it down.’” Jerusalem produced no fruit for Christ in His final year either. So the fig tree that was Jerusalem was indeed cut down, and from that time on we cannot imagine, under any circumstances, there ever having come one good thing from Judaism or from the descendants of those people. So where Christ says in Matthew 24:32-34: “32 Now learn from the parable of the fig tree, when already its branches should be tender and it would produce leaves, you know that summer is near. 33 Thusly also you, when you should see all these things, know that it is near by the doors. 34 Truly I say to you that by no means should this race escape until all these things should happen!” Today the jews are producing leaves, and their branches have extended to control all the earth. So we know that the harvest approaches.

In Matthew chapter 24 we saw a single discourse by Christ which answered three questions, which I shall repeat here because He is still addressing those questions in the three parables which comprise Matthew chapter 25, as our Bibles are now divided. The questions posed to Him by the apostles were these: 1. “Tell us, when shall these things be?”, in reference to His statements concerning the destruction of Jerusalem. 2. “What is the sign of Your coming...?” in reference to the ultimate return of the Christ, and 3. “...and of the consummation of the age?” which is in reference to Christ's many statements which mentioned the end of the age. In Matthew chapter 24 we saw that some of Christ's discourse applied specifically to first century Judaea. This is especially evident, as it was exposited from a harmony of the prophecies of Christ here as they were also recorded in Mark and in Luke. Yet much of His discourse as it was recorded in Matthew 24 – and in Mark and in Luke - still awaits fulfillment: since it does not describe any circumstance which occurred in the first century at the destruction of Old Jerusalem, nor has it been fulfilled to this day. So the three parables which we are about to discuss, which are indeed a continuation of His answer to those questions regarding the time of the end and His coming, are especially pertinent to us now, and in the days which lie ahead.

Christogenea on Talkshoe – August 19th, 2011 – Matthew Chapter 24, Part 2

Last week we ended with Luke's version of the discourse given by Christ which is found here at Matthew 24:15-22. In Luke we saw the exact historical fulfillment, as recorded by the historian Flavius Josephus, of Christ's words as they are recorded at Luke 21:20-25, concerning the forecast destruction of Jerusalem. Yet it is evident that Christ must have given a longer statement, and that Luke's record of it focused more specifically on what was said about Jerusalem, while the accounts of the discourse recorded by Matthew and Mark relate a more general prophecy.

Matthew 24 15 Therefore when you should see the abomination of desolation, which was spoken by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place he reading must understand 16 then those who are in Judaea must flee into the mountains; 17 he upon the house-top must not go down to take his things from the house, 18 and he in the field must not turn back to take his garment. 19 But woe to those being pregnant and those with infants in those days! 20 And you must pray that your flight should not be in winter nor on the Sabbath. 21 For at that time there shall be great tribulation, such as has not happened from the beginning of Society until now, nor by any means should happen! 22 And unless those days would be shortened, there would not be any flesh saved. But on account of the elect shall those days be shortened.
