Jonathan Ben Uzziel and Akiba
Andy P. Antippas Andy P. Antippas
I am here and constrained to speak the truth. I am Jonathan Ben Uzziel scribe and writer of the targums at the time of the non-existence of the man called Jesus Christ. We scribes who copied and paraphrased the Hebrew documents and transferred them into Aramaic did so under the scrutiny of the Chief Rabbis. Myself, my father and his before
him and before him worked principally on the so-called Books of Moses.We regularly made deletions and interpolations to suit the views of the Rabbis and it was very simple to supply vowels changing the meaning of whole passages. It was apparent from marginal notations that this was the way the Hebrew texts had been transmitted, inseting miraculous interventions, regularly distorting chronologies and altering the results of military engagements in order to be able to lay claims to neighboring areas, to aggrandize certain leaders and to diminish or eliminate the existence of others. The most shameful thing was altering already equivocal prophecies to suit the political interest of the Rabbis .What is called the Old Testament is nothing more than a monstrous sacredotal imposition of what we were taught to believe was the word of a god Jehovah. The Old Testament is neither old nor does it testify to anything except the duplicity of our Rabbis. The whole of our history is nothing but paraphrases of Chaldean legends learned by our Rabbis during our stay in Babylonia. The legends of the Jews extend no further back than Ezra the Scribe who took down the dictations of the Rabbis after the year of our return 520 years before Titus destroyed us. Onkelos, my grandfather’s predecessor, compiled all these legends in Aramaic, because the people could no longer read Hebrew.
I can speak further, but standing next to me is Akiba, an impatient, distinguished and
learned Rabbi; although he was my contemporary, it is here in the realm of the Spirits that we have become companions and allies for the promulgation of the truth concerning the Jewish and Christian religions.
My thanks, Brother Jonathan. There is much I wish to say, but I will concentrate on
elaborating upon my friend’s themes. There was no learned Jew of our times, especially my fellow Pharisees, who did not know that Jewish history had been largely fabricated; it was something we never spoke about when we were living. Here in the realm of the Spirits we argue about these things incessantly. Because of the efforts of Alexander in the East and the Caesars in the West and North, we Jews, Greeks, Egyptians, and Romans have become aware of the diverse religions of many peoples. Our embarrassment has been that all the god-systems were similar—they all worshipped the One Sun God, all had angels and demons, and all had a virgin-born savior. All the self-serving, bigoted and sectarians priesthoods of those systems fought among ourselves as to which was the oldest and from which all the other religions were copied. Our Rabbis were exceptional in controlling our books, but as often as they invented, altered, and rearranged our “history,” they have often overlooked original history because they thought it allegorical and not literal. Abraham, for example, we are told, is our patriarch—however the Rabbiis interpret this, he was, nevertheless, a Chaldean from Ur. And his name came to the Chaldeans from the Assyrians, who received it from the Hindu Gymnosophists, who called their Father Brahman. The whole truth has also survived under the noses of the Rabbis in Ezekiel 16th book where he tells us the story of Lady Jerusalem. Her mother, he says, was a Hittite and her father an Amorite. And she, Ezekiel tells us, became a prostitute for the Egyptians, the Philistines, the Assyrians, and the Babylonians—he should have added Caldeans, Armenians, Samaritans, Persians and the poor Canaanites, whom we exterminated, lest any survive to tell anyone that we took all their sacred sites for our One. Even Moses is the Mo of the Moabites and the Seth of the Caldeans—Moses’ very life is borrowed from the life of Sargon, the king of Akkad. You can equally see the disarray in the myriad names of our Sun God; sometimes he is Zedek, sometimes Yahweh, or Elohim, or El Shaddai, or
Immanuel, or El, or Ba’al Shamem, or Yedud, or Nebo, and on and on. The way out for the Rabbis was finally to say that his name was “ineffable,” “unutterable.” At times he confusingly represented as a sidereal, celestial semblance, and yet he “walks” in the Garden of Eden, “shuts” the ark door for the Babylonian Noah, wrestles with Jacob, and he gets very, very angry—like our Rabbis.
