What is the Gospel? Why was it composed, in several versions which wildly contradict each other?

the distinctive feature of the Gospel: its repugnant inhuman weirdness

As is well-known, the Gospels exhort all people to abandon their spouse and children; and to turn instead to homosexuality.

The only other antient books known to advocate the same thing are the Bauddha & Jaina in India, and (earlier) the Orphic &c. in Hellas.

The Bauddha & Jaina are likely derived from the Orphic etc. via the Makedonian intrusion into India; since they were apparently unknown at any earlier date.

N.B.: The Orphic & Dionusiac "Mysteries" are now known to have been based on imbibing of some very extreme narcotic drugs -- it is well-known that such drugs have the same effect of making addicts abandon spouse & children, and turn instead to homosexuality, even to-day.

what is likely to have been the specific occasion for composition of the Gospels?

Baffled by the madness of Mas^ya- ("Messia-")nism, the Hellenes (of the littoral, at Caesarea & Joppa) are likely to have have commissioned the writing of the Gospel (which certainly was not written in Palaestina, since most of the place-names mentioned in it are not to be found in Palaestina), praesumably by the most literate authors of that epoch, all of whom resided in Akkad, the country most abounding in books, book-catalogues, and erudite writers.

The numerous unidentified place-names in the Gospel are, thus, likely to be Hellenic transcriptions of translations into >aramaic of Akkado-Sumerian place-names; just as the seemingly epigrammatic "sayings" of Christ are likely to be collectively a translation of a Akkado-Sumerian book-catalogue.

As commissioned, the Gospel was to contain mention, by way of "historical fiction", a bogus account of characters mentioned in an off-handed manner in the much-circulated Antiquities of the Jews, a writing describing most vividly the madness of Messianism which had driven the Yhudi^m brutally to massacre the resident Roman & Hellenic immigrants. The characters so selected were Iesous & Paulos, who were made out (in the thus-concocted Gospel) to be, respectively, crazed Mas^yah & his raving promoter.

so, how was the Thraikian narcotics-cult fitted into this novelistic expose' of Mas^ya-nism?

Likely, the Dalmatic-Illurian rebellion may have been considered to parallel the Judaean madness. Then, from the fact that Illuris, Makedonia, and Thraike had a language in common, the Orphic-Dionusiac connection was fabricated.

what about the Hispanic connection?

The fickle treacherousness toward Sertorius in the Civil War would have been thought to made a good template for how the Yhudi^m,who were very split into mutually hostile factions, would be expected to treate a Mas^yah; so that as putative author Paul could then be assigned to Tarsos on the basis of Tars^is^ (= Turdetani of Hispania) being taken as homonym for Tarsos in Kilikia.

Furthermore, as the Phoenician name Iberia for the region including Hispania could imply, the Karkhedonian punishment of crucifixion (most likely degraded by them from the custom amongst the Akan of the Gold Coast of requiring that a priest dying of natural causes be placed in an upright posture, sustained by a wooden framework) could be assigned to Christ: with the natural implication that Paul was involved as undercover agent-informer, as in "Saul, Saul, wherefore persecutest thou me?"

But would there herein be some concealed suggestion that the fabled Christ died an ordinary natural death in the Gold Coast? And what about connections with Togo & Bi-afra?

Some Muslim traditions would have it that he died in Sicilia; indicating thus the Karkhedonian possessions amongst the Elumoi there: where Elumas & Bar-Jesus are juxtaposed. To the other Elumoi (those in Susiana) are sometimes assigned Memnon (of Troian renown); when he is not (as otherwise) assigned (with his Aithiopes) to the extreme west (praesumably, the Gold Coast) -- these being perhaps intended as to be taken as recorded in "especially the parchments".

The very term "parchments" could be an allusion (by way of kr.ttika "vellum") to Karttikeya Sena-pati -- married to "army", i.e. to (SP) Deva-sena "divine army" -- as figurative of the army destined (in the Revelation of St. John, likely an earlier draft of a writing commissioned by some other Hellene group than that commissioning the Gospel -- perhaps in the Deka-polis of Peraia) to emerge from east of the Tigris, to abolish Roman hegemony. Here, on account of the allusion to baptism ("washed in the blood ...") may a Dimas`qi^ source be indicated (-- viz., rather than Mithraic of Tarsos)?

Now, where the lowering basket-wise over the city-wall (cf. the abode atop the city-wall of the inn-keeperess-woman mentioned in the Epistle to the Hebrews) is concerned of Dima-s`q, there may be the affair of Kalilah (3rd authority of Ialdabaoth, GB, p. 147) & Dimnah (of Dimonah), where -s`q = s`aq "sackcloth".

In Kalilah & Dimnah "The geese began to fly, carrying the tortoise with them. They passed over a group of villagers who were amazed by this strange sight; they began to laugh and make fun of the tortoise. The tortoise forgot his promise and opened his mouth to answer them. He let go of the stick and fell to his death." (PL)

likewise in the Igbo story of "The Tortoise and the Birds", "Tortoise falls from the sky" (AOW)

This may indicate that whereas the Gospels have an affinity for the Gold Coast, the Revelation of St. John is to be connected to Bi-afra.

Besides this contrast beween the Gold Coast and Bia-afra, what are indications of sourcing of the Gospels with the Hudu (Hoodoo) of Togo? Given that Hudu is the main prophet sent to Medina according to the Qur>an, and that Medina = Medan nigh Midyan, then the priestly caste the Qeni^m of Midyan, as the proponents (according to Irenaeus) of the Gospel according to Judas Iscariot, will have this relation:-

Judas Iscariot is said to have hanged himself.

 

His younger brother Night Hunter was to assist Day Hunter "to lower him into the cave with a rope" (MD&DV, p. 113).

His body having exploded, the intestines of Judas Iscariot emerged.

Much as Loki was tied down with the guts of his son (according to the Edda), Prometheus was bound.

"Day Hunter knew that his belly had split open, because his intestines were scattered olver the rocks." (MD&DV, p. 114)

 

Prometheus concealed fire within the cannon-shaped fennel, a fiery-flavored spice (liquorice, anise).

Day Hunter proceeded to "point the wand at four different mountains, each of which burst into flames." (MD&DV, p. 115)

Here, as the high-priest of the Qeni^m, Y-TRO^ = TRO-pantheon of the Ewe of Togo, is initiator of Mos^eh into the secret of the wand, that wand serpent[-venomed like hot spice], and thus apparently impersonation of Prometheus.
