He hath Beelzebub


But Jesus withdrew himself with his disciples to the sea: and a great multitude from Galilee followed him, and from Judaea, (Mark:3:7)


And from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and from beyond Jordan; and they about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, when they had heard what great things he did, came unto him. (Mark:3:8)


And he spake to his disciples, that a small ship should wait on him because of the multitude, lest they should throng him. (Mark:3:9)


Throng — to crowd (literally or figuratively): — afflict narrow throng suffer tribulation trouble.


For he had healed many; insomuch that they pressed upon him for to touch him, as many as had plagues. (Mark:3:10)


Plagues — a whip (literally the Roman flagellum for criminals; figuratively a disease): — plague scourging.


In most cases, when the definition of a word is found in the Strong’s Concordance, it is the “Figurative” meaning of the word that applies to scripture, like with the word, “Plague” in verse ten chapter three of the Gospel of Mark, where the figurative meaning of the word, “Plague” is disease.


And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God. (Mark:3:11)


And he straitly charged them that they should not make him known. (Mark:3:12)


And he goeth up into a mountain, and calleth unto him whom he would: and they came unto him. (Mark:3:13)


And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach, (Mark:3:14)


Ordained — to make or do (in a very wide application more or less direct): — abide + agree.


Ordained?!


And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils: (Mark:3:15)


And Simon he surnamed Peter; (Mark:3:16)


And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and he surnamed them Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder: (Mark:3:17)


And Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Canaanite, (Mark:3:18)


And Judas Iscariot, which also betrayed him: and they went into an house. (Mark:3:19)


Judas — celebrated.

Betrayed — to surrender that is yield up entrust transmit: — betray bring forth cast commit deliver (up) give (over up) hazard put in prison recommend.


It seems that chapter three verses thirteen through nineteen of the Gospel of Mark was, “Inserted” after the original publication.


The character Simon was named, “Simon” when the character Jesus called him and his brother Andrew while walking by the sea of Galilee:


Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. (Mark:1:16)


Simon was, “Simon” when, “They entered into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John:


And forthwith, when they were come out of the synagogue, they entered into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John. (Mark:1:29)


Simon was, “Simon” when he and others, “Followed after him,” the character Jesus, the next morning:


And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed. (Mark:1:35)


And Simon and they that were with him followed after him. (Mark:1:36)


Then, for no apparent reason, after the character Jesus, “Straitly Charged” some unclean spirits that they should not make him known:


He, the character Jesus, goeth up into a mountain, and calleth unto him whom he would: and they came unto him.


And he, “Ordained” twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach, and to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:


And Simon he surnamed Peter.


And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and he surnamed them Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder?!


And Judas Iscariot, which also betrayed him: and they went into a house?!


This is a case where the reversed translated words and names don’t match the narrative.


Using the “Pertinent Words and Names Method of Interpreting the Holy Bible has led to this conclusion, but the use of the word, “Ordained” in chapter three verse fourteen, created the suspicion….


In the Gospel of Mark:


Ordained (G4160) Apparently a prolonged form of an obsolete primary; to make or do (in a very wide application more or less direct).


The meaning that follows the reference number used for the word, “Ordained” in the Gospel of Mark doesn’t make sense.


The name Judas means, “Celebrated,” yet the character Judas is accused, by every author of the Four Gospels, of having betrayed the character Jesus.


It’s hard to find two of the three authors of the Synoptic Gospels that agree on something.


To have all “Four Authors” write, over and over that, “Judas Iscariot” either was going to or had already betrayed the character Jesus, is more than a “Coincidence!”


When the authors of the four Gospels wrote their accounts, it was some twenty or thirty years after the fact.


Any scribe, Pharisee, Sadducee, Herodian or member of the Sanhedrin could have inserted text blaming the character Judas Iscariot for betraying the character Jesus.


Why? To throw suspicion away from the religious leaders, that’s why.


The fact that the accusation has remained a part of the Holy Bible until today is nothing short of a miracle!


Someone immensely powerful with a lot of influence made sure it was, “One of the “Twelve” that betrayed the character Jesus! I find that, “Very” interesting!


The most compelling reason for believing verses thirteen through nineteen were, “Inserted after the Original Manuscript was Published” is this:


For he had healed many; insomuch that they pressed upon him for to touch him, as many as had plagues. (Mark:3:10)


And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God. (Mark:3:11)


And he straitly charged them that they should not make him known. (Mark:3:12)


Without verses thirteen through nineteen the story continues, flawlessly:


And the multitude cometh together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread. (Mark:3:20)


And when his friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold on him: for they said, He is beside himself. (Mark:3:21)


What sort of, “Friends” were they?


Whatever the relationship, those friends thought the character Jesus was insane!


And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils. (Mark:3:22)


Beelzebub — dung god; Beelzebul a name of Satan.

Devils — a demon or supernatural spirit (of a bad nature): — devil; a daemonic being; by extension a deity: — devil god.


And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan? (Mark:3:23)


And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. (Mark:3:24)


And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. (Mark:3:25)


And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end. (Mark:3:26)


No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house. (Mark:3:27)


Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith so ever they shall blaspheme: (Mark:3:28)


The word, “Sons” is not spelled with a capital “s.” That means the author is referring to, “Flesh and Blood Human Beings.”


But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation. (Mark:3:29)


Damnation — (Subjectively or objectively for or against); by extension a tribunal; by implication justice (specifically divine law): — accusation condemnation damnation judgment.


Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit. (Mark:3:30)


Matthew


But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils. (Matthew:12:24)


And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand: (Matthew:12:25)


And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand? (Matthew:12:26)


The author of the Gospel of Mark said nothing about, “Satan’s Kingdom!”


After the character Jesus was baptized:


And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him. (Mark:1:13)


From this one verse came the “Forty Days in the Wilderness Stories,” created by the authors of the Gospels of Matthew and Luke.


In the Gospel of Matthew:


Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; (Matthew:4:8)


And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. (Matthew:4:9)


In the Gospel of Luke:


And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. (Luke:4:5)


And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. (Luke:4:6)


If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. (Luke:4:7)


If there is or ever was a “Kingdom of Satan,” it exists only in the minds of human beings who “Believe Blindly!”


It is totally understandable that the human beings in the character Jesus’ day believed, “Blindly,” because most of them couldn’t read!


The human beings that could read, more than likely, had one or the other of the Gospels: Mark, Matthew, or Luke.


Depending on which Gospel a person was exposed to back then, that would determine what that person was more than likely to “Internalize.”


Today, having not only the “Four Gospels,” but the whole “Old Testament” and the rest of the “New Testament” to read, study and compare, there is no excuse for people who believe, to believe, “Blindly.”


The forty days in the wilderness, “Stories” are unique to the Gospels of Matthew and Luke which means none of it probably happened….


And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges. (Matthew:12:27)


What children? What judges? This is just an attempt, made by the author of the Gospel of Matthew, to plant the fear of “Guilt and Judgement” in the minds of the audience….


But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you. (Matthew:12:28)


This is one of the very few verses in the Gospel of Matthew that could almost be believed.


It could, “Almost Be Believed” only because this is one of the very few times that the author of the Gospel of Matthew actually writes, “The kingdom of God” instead of the kingdom of heaven.


The kingdom of God and the kingdom of heaven are two different places, and they are also in two different places: One is on earth, the other is in, “The sky,” supposedly.


Or else how can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house. (Matthew:12:29)


He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad. (Matthew:12:30)


The author of the Gospel of Matthew is always putting words in the mouth of the character Jesus.


There is strong evidence of a “Great Revision of the Synoptic Gospels.”


There are too many things added to or subtracted from what is written in the Gospel of Mark to think that some scribes somehow, changed them all.


Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. (Matthew:12:31)


The author of the Gospel of Matthew had no idea that someone would be reading the words of this Gospel, side by side, with the words of the other Gospels, two thousand years, in the future.


If so, it would’ve been a lot harder to “Detect the Differences.”


To label them “Discrepancies,” would insinuate that the authors of the Four Gospels intended for their books to be put into a “Cannon of Scriptures.” They are “Differences,” made “Intentionally!”


And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come. (Matthew:12:32)


In the Gospel of Mark:


Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith so ever they shall blaspheme: (Mark:3:28)


But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation. (Mark:3:29)


The phrase, “Whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him,” is unique to the Gospels of Matthew and Luke which means the character Jesus probably didn’t say it.


Messages like this one from both, the Gospels of Matthew, above and the Gospel of Luke in chapter twelve verse ten, is why I suspect that the “Church” has been so ineffective in bringing peace on earth….


Luke


But some of them said, He casteth out devils through Beelzebub the chief of the devils. (Luke:11:15)


The author of the Gospel of Luke, who, it is becoming more and more obvious, used both the Gospels of Mark and Matthew as a source, changed what the author of the Gospel of Mark wrote and what the author of the Gospel of Matthew wrote.


Now Beelzebub is the “Chief of the devils instead of the prince of the devils.


And others, tempting him, sought of him a sign from heaven. (Luke:11:16)


No one asked for a sign in this account. The author of the Gospel of Luke probably read it somewhere and thought this was a great place to stick it.


A scribe could have inserted it. If you read it out loud, it reads, “Out of Place.”


But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth. (Luke:11:17)


In the Gospel of Mark:


And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. (Mark:3:24)


In the Gospel of Matthew:


And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand: (Matthew:12:25)


If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub. (Luke:11:18)


In the Gospel of Matthew:


And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand? (Matthew:12:26)


From this verse the authors of Matthew and Luke gave “Satan” a kingdom:


And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. (Mark:3:24)


And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast them out? therefore shall they be your judges. (Luke:11:19)


In the Gospel of Matthew:


And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges. (Matthew:12:27)


But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you. (Luke:11:20)


In the Gospel of Matthew:


But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you. (Matthew:12:28)


Verses seventeen through twenty chapter eleven of the Gospel of Luke is almost, “Word for Word” the same as the Gospel of Matthew chapter twelve verses twenty-five through twenty-eight!


If the only place in the King James Version of the Holy Bible a “Thought” or a “Saying” can be found is in either the Gospel of Matthew or the Gospel of Luke or is only in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, it most likely didn’t come from the character Jesus.
