To me the real question is why did Alexandrian Jews involved with the Gospel authorship want to return Jews to solar deity worship. What was wrong with the Hebrew's God Most High's position as ruler of the planet Saturn on the seventh or "most high" level of the seven heavens above the earth-centered cosmos? I think it was the lack of resurrection theology that was missing in Judaism's rebellion against the Egyptian solar religion. Perhaps these Alexandrian Jews wanted to see Jewish souls live forever and not in some shadowy existence in Sheol but in a Paradise like the pagans afterlife enjoyed for those judged worthy. But why the ruse then? Why create a Jewish Messiah as a Horus/Osiris dying/resurrection god-man? Why not just adopt the Egyptian system and be done with it? Could not be done for Jews because of tribal loyalty? Had to be a Jewish remake of another pagan religious system on the order of Brahma and Sarasvati and Ghaggar-Hakra being remade into Jewish and Arab progenitors Abraham, Sarah and Hagar? Again, why the deception needed to fool the world into accepting Christianity as a stand-alone new Jewish theology? Again I think it's the resurrection of the soul that became so important to Alexandrian Jews living in Egyptian religious milieu that they wanted to redo the Jewish Out of Egypt I called My Son interpretation, not as Moses who could not cross the Jordan, i.e. symbolically Moses and Mosaic Judaism could not resurrect Jews to the Promised Land where Joshua made it across the river and so did Joshua's namesake, Jesus, both representing Yahweh as a new dying/resurrection god-man who is one with EL in the Mosaic god-mixture of YHWH.


I think I see what you're saying. It has always bothered me that Christians can so easily flip-flop between the Old and New Testaments. This seems to me to be an adulteration of both. Example: Psalm 139 ""Oh Lord, shouldn't I hate those who hate you? Shouldn't I despise those who resist you? Yes, I hate them with complete hatred, for your enemies are my enemies." I found this in a little booklet entitled, "The Book of Hope" distributed by a local Christian church.

As to this idea of "Christianity as a stand-alone new Jewish theology", this is a new thought for me and perhaps your right. Why else would the Old Testament play such an important role right down to the overwhelming support of Christians for the State of Israel and the Jewish right to land that was occupied by other folks? That's like the U.N. pronouncing that the State of Wisconsin no longer exist. It is now going to be governed by other folks and current residents have no say in the matter or the government. Or like the U.S. saying to the American Indians, "This land is now the State of Wisconsin and you're going to have to move."
