JESUS OF NAZARETH - ECCE HOMO / Gesù di Nazareth - Ecce homo

Dear friends, many greetings from Serafino Massoni. "Jesus of Nazareth - Ecce Homo".
We are at the 23th of December and it's going to end so in 2 days it will be Christmas.
We celebrate Christmas on the 25th but for many other Christians this festivity falls on another date.
Jesus's figure is connected to mystery cults, to the life cycle of the Sun and it's for this reason that we see the Child Jesus sorrounded by sunbeams. It stands for the Sun that returns to shine and so for the hope that life continues to defeat death.
From this point of view Christ represents the year while his disciples the 12 months.
But we have to consider that at the time of Jesus, the total passage from the lunar calendar to the solar calendar hasn't been done yet and probably the disciples weren't 12 but 13, because 13 were the months of the lunar calendar.
At the time of Julius Caesar the Roman calendar was a mix of the lunar and the solar ones. The lunar calendar is based on the movements of the moon and each moon is composed by 28 days to which correspond women's menstruations.
Jesus is one of the many scapegoats who were destined to carry on their shoulders the sins of mankind
and the scapegoat was the first medicine of mankind because today Jesus is still called "Lamb of God, that takest away the sins of the world".
It's surprising the figure of this scapegoat that was Jesus of Nazareth, born in Bethlehem but who lived in Nazareth and for this reason called The Galilean.
The surprising thing is that the language of Jesus, that we know from the Gospels, is strangely different from the language of the whole previous Jewish culture, such as the Old Testament.
There is a gap and it seems like Jesus isn't a Jew, a Semite. Remember to pay attention when speaking about Semites, because they are not only Jews, but also Arabs, Ethiopans and many others nations.
So, Jesus is both a Jew and a Semite because he was born at the time of the Roman conquest of the Palestine. But he speaks a different language, like he doesn't belonge to his Jewish world.
The figure of Jesus was such a wonderful one that Nietzsche said:"At bottom there was only one Christian, and he died on the cross."
To know what language speaks Jesus we have to consider his crucifixion. The crucifixion was a punishment but it wasn't obligatorily directed to kill the victim. Some autorithies tells us that Jesus was left on the Crucifix for 3 days, but he wasn't dead and his serious injuries were treated.
After he recovered from his injuries he left Palestine with Mary, Joseph, Saint Thomas and Magdalene and he went eastwards.
And actually the first Christian communities were founded by Saint Thomas on the Malabar Coast, in the western India.
So he went in India, but then it seems that he settled in Kashmir and precisely in Srinagar, that nowadays is devastated by the war between India and Pakistan. And Srinagar is at the North of Rawalpindi and Lahore, two cities connected with the English colonialism.
But why did Jesus go to India? We have to consider that when he was a child, from the age of 12 to 30 he disappeared and in these 18 years, Jesus, considering the language that he speaks, lived in India.
And here, in the Gange valley, he learned the Buddha's doctrine and when he came back to Israel, he was either a disciple of Buddha or a Buddha himself.
If we see how he endured the suffering from flogging, the process and then the crucifixion we can easly say that he became a Buddha. In any case his preaching is kind of a Buddha.
For exemple, Jesus's speech of the mountain, when he says that birds don't sow and don't harvest, but God provides for their survival, his tipically Buddhist.
The whole Jesus's preaching and behaviour is Buddhist. We should also make a comparison with Socrates, but the most important relation is with Buddha.
When Jesus was processed he didn't say a word in defence of himself and he didn't want advocates. The same did Socrates. And when judges asked Jesus if he was the king of Jews and he answered: "Yes, but my reign doesn't belong to this world", probably he wanted to mean that this reign is an inner one, that is, to be conscious of ourselves; here we have the union with both Buddha and Socrates.
Jesus wasn't a functional figure for the Roman and Jewish patriarchy, because he opposed himself to it and so he must be eliminated. His figure is very incredible because he is a Semite but he is against the patriarchal and capitalist Jewish system.
And so the Rabbis agreed with Jewish people on releasing Barabas and sacrificing Jesus. And we return on the scapegoat subject.
It was a strange destiny which made Jesus born in Israel and so of a Semite race, in a place that was the heart of the Patriarchy. But this person didn't speak the same language of Jews.
And about the fact that he didn't die on the cross, there are some Islamic authorities that say that in Kashmir Jesus spent his life with his wife and sons and in Srinagar are buried both Jesus and Moses.
In some circles is believed that, when Moses left Egypt, the Promised Land wasn't Canaan but Kashmir.
And so with Jesus we have a break and a particular introduction of the Buddhist doctrine into the Jewish-Roman patriarchal system. In this perspective it's not strange that Jesus's message wasn't able to caught on.
The Christian message remains but it hasn't been practised and in fact the Christian Church, and in particular the Catholic one, owns Christ's words but not his facts.
Just consider the structure of this Church, it's deeply hierarchical and patriarchal and in fact the Pope, cardinals and so on, don't get married!
So Jesus, doesn't have any relationship with this kind of Church, because its message is one of poverty and humility. So it has nothing to do with the private property.
While the Roman Church, but also other Churches, owns properties. For example the Vatican has an importan Bank ("Institute for Works of Religion").
So, in 2 days we are going to celebrate the birth of this divine scapegoat, whose figure has been westernized and patriarchalized following the lead of the Platonic dualism. And when Jesus said "What's the use of conquering the world if then you lose your soul?" we have a great exemple of the Buddhist message.
But Jesus words have been profoundly patriarchalized, because in them we can never see the dualism between Earth and Heaven, but we always find a reference to the inner part of us.
Dear friends, many things should be said about Jesus, this wonderful figure. And believing in him or not, I consider him a great man; his message is beautiful, the only problem is that it was patriarchalized, because Jesus has always been a foreign body in the Roman and Jewish patriarchal system.
So this message had to be adjusted to the patriarchal world and what surprises is the fact that Jesus's words about the private property haven't been eliminated. Anyway the message of Christ has never been carried out especially by the ones that form the Church's body, who owns many luxiurious properties.
Well, dear friends, Jesus as a great and wonderful figure, that I directly link to the Buddha and to the Buddhist message about the Samsara and Nirvana. "What's the use of conquering the world if you then lose your inner serenity?".
So, my dear friends, I wish you a merry Christmas and I thank you if you have listened to me. Best regards from Serafino Massoni.
