JAMES AND JOHN ZEBEDEE


Boanerges (sons of thunder). A name given to James and John, the sons of Zebedee, because they wanted to call down “fire from heaven” to consume the Samaritans for not “receiving” the Lord Jesus.

The Gospel of John does not say that James and John were given the name Boanerges!

Why? I think they were named Boanerges by the deceiver/deceivers that wrote the Synoptic Gospels (the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke)!

Please read the link below:

The Grace of Anathema Maranatha

IN the book of Acts, Saul and Barnabus are on a “ministry” that coincides with the death of James, the imprisonment of Peter when Peter goes to another place, the death of Herod when he is eaten by worms and they take John surnamed Mark with them after their “ministry” is completed. What in the world was their “ministry”?

Then Saul metamorphosizes into Paul!

This post is about the tearing down of the character of James and John Zebedee. There was a reason for the synoptic gospels to include these personal attacks on these two brothers. I believe the reason for the attacks on John and James is because the Gospel of John tells about the true Jesus Christ and the synoptic gospels (Matthew, Mark, and Luke) are trying to deceive us and sell us a false rendition of Jesus Christ and his disciples!

In the gospel of Mark, Jesus is explaining to his disciples what was to befall Him very shortly and James and John come to him:

Mark 10:33-34

33Saying, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be delivered unto the chief priests, and unto the scribes; and they shall condemn him to death, and shall deliver him to the Gentiles:34And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again.

Mark 10:35

35And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come unto him, saying, Master, we would that thou shouldest do for us whatsoever we shall desire.

Let’s get real! Does this sound normal?

This is absurd that James and John would respond this way to what Jesus was telling them at that time, according to the gospel of Mark.

Isn’t it odd that Matthew’s gospel doesn’t mention that James and John say: Master we would that thou shouldest do for us whatsoever we shall desire?

But maybe even to the writer of the gospel of Matthew realized how fakey this sounds!

————————————————-

Matthew 20:20-21

20Then came to him the mother of Zebedees children with her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him.21And he said unto her, What wilt thou? She saith unto him, Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on the left, in thy kingdom.

And another anomaly is that in the gospel of Matthew it is the mother of James and John that requests that her two sons sit at the right and left, yet in the gospel of Mark it is  James and John that ask to sit on his left and right!

Mark 10:36-39

36And he said unto them, What would ye that I should do for you?37They said unto him, Grant unto us that we may sit, one on thy right hand, and the other on thy left hand, in thy glory.38But Jesus said unto them, Ye know not what ye ask: can ye drink of the cup that I drink of? and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?39And they said unto him, We can. And Jesus said unto them, Ye shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of; and with the baptism that I am baptized withal shall ye be baptized:

Why did Jesus ask them if they could drink of the cup that he drinks

and why did Jesus ask if they can be baptized with the baptism

that he was baptized with

if indeed they would be?

Does that make sense?

This is redundant!

Remember : Jesus Christ was baptized by John the Baptist!

Never did anyone see Jesus Christ baptized with FIRE!

Mark 10:40-41

40But to sit on my right hand and on my left hand is not mine to give; but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared.41And when the ten heard it, they began to be much displeased with James and John.

Do you really think James and John Zebedee would ask to sit on the right or left side?

And would any sane person ask such a thing to the Messiah?

How did the other ten disciples hear of it? Weren’t the ten disciples also there listening to Jesus at the time?

These were real people and real people don’t act this way in real life!

Not that we don’t think stupid things sometimes, but to say what they said publicly?

I don’t believe that James and John said this to Jesus Christ and in front of the other disciples.

It sounds like a weekly soap opera theme and I think that is what the synoptic gospels want you to think, especially about James and John Zebedee! Why? Because they were the true apostles of Jesus Christ!

It is another way to discredit the truth in the gospel of John that they could not find and destroy!

=================================================

Luke 9:49-50

49And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us.50And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us.

Does this sound normal?

What does that mean he that is not against us is for us?

Jesus was not running for a popularity contest, nor for political office.

Just because someone isn’t against you does not mean they are for you!

Just because someone isn’t for you does not mean they are against you!

This is stupidity!

============================================

Luke 9:52-53

52And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him.53And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem.

Jesus sent messengers before his face….

……his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem

neither of the above make any sense!

IF Jesus sent messengers before him, how would the Samaritans know that his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem?

If Jesus’s face was as though he would go to Jerusalem, why would it matter if they did not receive him in Samaria?

This is NONSENSE!

=============================================

Luke 9:54-56

54And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did?55But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.56For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.

Please Read Woman at the Well!

It is about Jesus going to Samaria and it is written in the gospel of JOHN!

All three synoptic gospels (Matthew, Mark and Luke) do not include this encounter with the woman at the well in Samaria!

WHY?

Something eerie about the absence of this in the other three gospels, because it has to do with the 6th hour which is the same hour that Jesus Christ dies!

THE SAME JESUS CHRIST THAT DIED AT THE 6TH HOUR ON THE CROSS IS THE SAME JESUS CHRIST THAT WENT TO SAMARIA AND MET THE WOMAN AT THE WELL!

For some reason

THE THREE SYNOPTIC GOSPELS EXCLUDE THIS EVENT!

Didn’t they know that Jesus Christ went to Samaria?

Why didn’t they know that?

They PROVE that they DID NOT KNOW HIM by their lack of knowledge that Jesus did go to Samaria and this is what he said to the woman at the well about the 6th hour:

John 5:24-25

24Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
25Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.

===============================================


Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did? Jesus says :Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of, and then Jesus says :For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them.

IN the book of Acts fire comes down from heaven in the form of cloven tongues.

Revelation also speaks of  fire coming down from heaven in the sight of men and is speaking about the false prophet and the antichrist!

INTERESTING!
