Hellbound Food for Thought: The Crowd of Jews
Hellbound Food for Thought: The Crowd of Jews

Continuing on my series of “Hellbound Food For Thought” I’d
like to ponder the Crowd at the trial of Jesus.


As literature, the sudden change of heart makes no sense what so ever.
Over the past few weeks, months and last year of Jesus's life, the Jews of the region were treated to
great lectures where he drew a large following…of which he supposedly even FED
them for Free! He was healing people, casting out demons…a proverbial Ghostbusters
of Palestine. He supposedly had legions of
followers that were listening and loyal. THEN in the dark of night around Passover
a secret trial happened (There was no Jewish CNN to spread the news in an
instant) and before you know it JC was on stage next to a KNOWN Murder and Thief
(Barabbas). For NO REAL REASON the crowds TURNED on Jesus and wanted to let the
Jeffrey Dahamer of their time go instead. The change of heart collectively of the crowd
was not a ‘well, he’s just a loud mouth soothsayer/magician so just ignore him’..
NOPE ..it was a FROTHING at the mouth, let a murder go…and kill the hippie.


As stories go, this seems to be a gigantic hole in the story
and oddly random. What do you guys think?

RE: Hellbound Food for Thought: The Crowd of Jews
Actually it's a lot worse than that. He was rather convicted during the passover seder. Passover is a high holiday (conversely Chanukah is NOT) - The rules for high holidays have been around a long time and were in effect when Jesus also a Jew was alive. It has never made sense that a Jewish commission would convene at that time. They would wait for Passover to end then procede. The whole story is rather convoluted, including the last supper (women would have prepared it and served it -- meaning women would have had to have been present and overheard some of what was said, even if they didn't participate in the actual meal another thing that wasn't uncommon for the time).

It's as though the so-called gospels were soooo far removed from Judaism that they didn't understand the traditions anymore. Personally, I think if anyone could locate an original text (the newest "copies" are dated from what the 2nd, 3rd and 4th century) that's a lot of time for those "copies" to have been corrupted and usurped much like Josephus's words for an agenda.

Like something is brewing and about to begin
Can't put my finger on what lies in store
but I feel what's to happen has happened before...

RE: Hellbound Food for Thought: The Crowd of Jews
These are ALSO really great things to consider. Thanks for
sharing.


ALSO, would law abiding jews have come out ON the Passover holiday
to yell for the death of Jesus? Would this be in any direct violation of the
law?

RE: Hellbound Food for Thought: The Crowd of Jews
Passover lasts for 7 days. The first and last days are the most important. The middle days are still important but people generally can have some leeway. Whether a crowd could form at all would greatly depend on which day and the time of day.

It's not that it would be for or against Jewish law -- it's more the case it just wouldn't be done at all.

There's a problem in a Bible story? Really? Ohmy

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

It could be possible there were Romans there.
