Pesher of Christ: It's all in the Family!
The Relations of Jesus

© 2014 by Dylan Stephens

Paulina's Promise to her Grandfather, Jesus

Discussion:

Tamar-Phoebe is Jesus' daughter. Mary Magdalene was pregnant with Jesus' child when he was on the cross. Phoebe marrries Paul. Mary Magdalene's mother is the Syro-Phoenician woman. So many events in the New Testament can be understood by the family relationships of Jesus. For instance Simon Magus was a Zealot and when he was punished with excommunication for a failed demonstration that ended in a riot, Jesus did not want to get involved because he has against violence, but his mother-in-law Martha (Helena) insisted that he raise Lazarus (Simon Magus, his father-in-law) from this symbolic death. He hesitated hoping that Jonathan Annas would do it, but in the end he came. It was this act that made the High Priest Caiaphas single him out for death. So in the end he was crucified because of the family!

The SyroPhoenician woman was his mother-in-law Helena asking Jesus to marry her daughter Mary Magdalene. The Samaritan Woman at the Well was Helena asking Jesus to be part of his father-in-law's coup against John the Baptist. Jairus' daughter was Mary Magdalene at her Bat Mitzvah. The Menstruous Woman was Helena, abstaining from sex since her daughter's birth. In fact the brazened request to Jesus to give James and John special privileges was because Helena was the step-mother of James and John, having adopted them. In fact it was the royal blood of James and John which accounted for Christianity being allowed in Rome, until Nero.

The other amazing discovery is that Phoebe, Jesus' daughter married Paul. Thus it can be understood why it is that Jesus, after he survived the Crucifixion, was able to be so close to such a strong-willed man and how Jesus and Paul were able to set up rules for the Church to include Gentiles even though Paul was initially ready to kill Christians or breaking Jewish law.

Yet another amazing discovery is that Paul who was Saul is the son of Herod Antipas, the son of Herod the Great, by his first wife Phasaelis who was the daughter of King Aretas IV of the Nabataeans and his queen Chuldu. This is revealed in Acts 23:16 which mentions "Paul's sister's son". His step-sister is Salome, the daughter of Herodias, Herod Antipas' second wife. The son referred there is Timothy (Herod), his nephew. His other nephews by Salome are Tychicus (Agrippa) and Trophimus (Aristobulus) in Acts 21:29. This explains why the Christian Church joined with the Herodian Church because Paul was Herodian.
