Leave Jesus Christ alone. You probably know little about him.

What does it matter? Just about all philosophers and scientists up through at least the 18th century were wealthy.

Why would masses of disgruntled idiots consistently vote for 1%ers and then find it rational to complain about the rich caulk soakers not representing them?

Historically or factually, there was no jesus. It is part of the Roman media machine lead by Constantine. The new books in the bible are from people that had never met jesus hundreds of years later after his so call existence. In fact there are known counterfeits of people trying to make a historical paper trail for jesus. Why would they do this unless jesus never existed. Religion is man made, something that came before TV.

Jesus never married.

There seems to be evidence to indicate otherwise.

Assuming that there was an historical Jesus, which is an extremely problematic assumption, he is assumed to have been a carpenter, a working man, certainly not among the elite of either the Jewish state or the Roman empire. According to the book of Acts early Christianity was essentially a communist-Jewish sect made up largely of poor Jews, peasants and craftsmen. It is precisely because of this that literal Christian communism broke down very early on. Short of expropriating the very wealthy there simply was not enough to go around.

Strangely enough, it appears there were hundred, perhaps thousands of infant males named Jesus in that time period. It was a popular name, the political and racial tensions fed the 'prophecy' which lead many young mothers to name their child in hopes of fulfilling that prophecy.

Is it too large a leap to enter into conjecture that the 'historical Jesus' was actually several 'Jesus' ', engaged in politcal activism?

That said, while this may be an interesting sidebar, please let's get on with the business of OWS.

Jesus is only a corruption of the name Joshua. Historically we are talking about Joshua Ben Joseph.

Yeah, but we must remember our readership...

Well paupers were not laid to rest in private tombs. Is it problematic to assume Lazarus existed and had great wealth?

[-] 1 points by RedJazz43 (2757) 2 years ago

The historical Christ was not a person of wealth, but neither was he a pauper. He was a craftsman with a rather large following. I'm not up on my biblical history, but the last seder took place in a house owned by Joseph of Aramathia (sp?) who was a person of wealth and I believe the tomb also was supposed to be his.

He was a democrat, through and through, even though it didn't work out well for him

I'm still waiting for someone to come back from the dead who's been there long term to give us a report on what they have seen.
