Manichaeism was a religious movement founded in Persia in the 3rd century CE by Kerala sage Mani, who was known as the “Apostle of Light” and supreme “Illuminator.”
Manichaeism rapidly spread west into the Roman Empire. Vigorously attacked by both the Christian church it disappeared almost entirely..
Mani preached about the human soul, from the Bhagavad Gita
The Mandaeans live on the banks of the Tigris ..They must live near running water where they can practise their continual baptismal rites of prophet, Kerala sage John the Baptist
The numerous writings of the Mandæans bear witness to the continued existence of the disciples of John the Baptist
JOHN THE BAPTIST AND APOLLONIUS OF TYANA ( ON WHOM JESUS CHRIST WAS MODELLED IN 325 AD BY JEWESS HLENA ) WERE CONTEMPORARIES
Judaism and Christianity are a deviation from a preexisting Mandaean reality.
Mandaeans assert that their religion predates Judaism and Christianity..
They also believe that they are the direct descendants of John the Baptist's original Nasoraean ( Nasrani ) Mandaean disciples in Jerusalem.
According to the Mandaean text the Haran Gawaita, the Nasoraean Mandaeans, who were disciples of John the Baptist, left Judea/Palestine and migrated to Media after Christianity was born in 325 AD
The emigrants went first to Haran (probably Harran in modern-day Turkey), or Hauran and then the Median hills in Iran, before finally settling in the southern provinces of Mesopotamia (modern day Iraq)
At the beginning of the Muslim conquest of Mesopotamia in c. 640, the leader of the Mandaeans, Anush Bar-Danqa, is said to have appeared before the Muslim authorities, showing them a copy of the Ginza Rabba, the Mandaean holy book, and proclaiming the chief Mandaean prophet to be John the Baptist, who is also mentioned in the Quran as Yahya Bin Zakariya. Yahya is mentioned five times in the Quran
John the Baptist was a preacher sent by God to prepare the people of Israel for the coming of Jesus Christ ( who never existed ) and to witness and verify Him as the Messiah
Jesus Christ ( who never existed ) came from Galilee in order for John to baptize him.
In reality Hindu John the Baptist baptized Hindu Apollonius of Tyana the way Hindus do it at Kashi in Ganges river
The Mandaeans see themselves as healers of the "Worlds and Generations"
Mandaeans do not consider John to be the founder of their religion but they revere him as their greatest teacher who renews and reforms their ancient faith
Mandaeism does not consider Abraham, Moses or Jesus Mandaean prophets
Mandaean religious texts were orally transmitted before being written down by scribes, making dating and authorship difficult.
Another important text is the Haran Gawaita, which tells the history of the Mandaeans. According to this text, a group of Nasoraeans ( Nsrani Mandean priests) left Judea before the destruction of Jerusalem in the first century CE, and settled within the Parthian Empire.
If you see anyone hungry, feed him; if you see anyone thirsty, give him a drink.
—Right Ginza I.105
Give alms to the poor. When you give do not attest it. If you give with your right hand do not tell your left hand. If you give with your left hand do not tell your right hand.
Ye the chosen ones ... Do not wear iron and weapons; let your weapons be knowledge and faith in the God of the World of Light. Do not commit the crime of killing any human being.
The two most important ceremonies in Mandaean worship are baptism (Masbuta), and 'the ascent' (Masiqta – a mass for the dead or ascent of the soul ceremony) when the skull pops during cremation
Baptism usually involves full immersion in flowing water, and all rivers considered fit for baptism are called Yardena (after the River Jordan).
The ascent of the soul ceremony, called the masiqta, can take various forms, but usually involves a ritual meal in memory of the dead. The ceremony is believed to help the souls of the departed on their journey pst the first astral layer purgatory ..
Mandaeans must face north during prayers, which are performed three times a day
Zidqa (almsgiving) is also practiced in Mandaeism with Mandaean laypeople regularly offering alms to priests like in Hindusim.
Mandaeans believe in marriage (qabin) and procreation, placing a high priority upon family life and in the importance of leading an ethical and moral lifestyle. God created the human body complete, so no part of it should be removed or cut off, hence circumcision is considered bodily mutilation for Mandaeans and therefore forbidden… There goes Jewish claims out of the window. Mandaeans do not eat meat
Fasting in Mandaeism is called sauma.
Those amongst the community who possess secret knowledge are called Naṣuraiia—Naṣoraeans --the semi-ignorant laity are called 'Mandaeans'..
The Dead Sea Scrolls have produced increasing evidence to cement the fact that Jesus Christ never existed and the whole story was cooked up at the First Council of Nicea in 325 AD.
THE DEAD SEA SCROLL SHOW THAT JOHN THE BAPTIST, WAS AN ESSENE AND A MEMBER OF THE QUMRAN COMMUNITY.
Earlier scholars, such as Dr. Joseph Klausner in 1925 and Heinrich Graetz in the nineteenth century, were firmly convinced long before the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls that John the Baptist was an Essene.
The opinion of these latter scholars is largely based on the descriptions of John the Baptist given by Flavius Josephus, a contemporary Roman (37–ca. 100 CE).
John the Baptist’s baptizing ritual was very reminiscent of the ritual immersion practiced by the Essenes—the same as Hindus dipping in the Ganges.
John the Baptist was a brown skinned Kerala sage , an Essene... The Qumran Dead Sea Scroll called the Community Rule (also known as the Manual of Discipline), sets out the requirement for a ten-year period of study ( brahmacharya ashrama ) , after which, at the age of twenty, students had to undergo a public examination before their peers to verify their integrity and their understanding of the Law.
The Qur'an mentions only 25 prophets by name, including a different Zechariah, the father of Kerala sage John the Baptist.
Z'akharya contains the word Acharya, which in Sanskrit means one who knows the rules, a holy teacher. Zechariah's name itself is testimony to the Hindu (and vegetarian) origins of Essenes.
Zechariah is a figure in the Bible and the Quran. In the Bible, he is the father of John the Baptist, an Essene
Jewess Helena made Zechariah a Hebrew prophet the author of the Book of Zechariah, which she cooked up in 325 AD
It is pure BULL that Zechariah’s wife Elizabeth is a relative of the Virgin Mary—all this Gabriel angel funda..
Mary and Gabriel never existed ..bot were cooked up by Jewess Helena along with Bible. Jesus, Torah , Moses, Abraham , Sara etc
The original Koran does NOT contain this bull. The original Koran written in Cheraman Perumal mosque Kodungallur, is in the foxholes of Timbuktoo Mali desert sands
The original Koran was written in Cheraman Perumal mosque in Kodungallur. The Koran in this mosque today has been poison injected replaced by Jew Rothschild using CRYPTO JEWS .
John the Baptist was an Essene and was NOT circumcised. It is KOSHER BULL that Elizabeth gave birth, and on the eighth day, when their son was circumcised according to the commandment.
Jesus Christ name was cooked up in 325 AD, Jewess Helena by the mother of Hindu Roman Emperor Constantine the Great.
Poor confused lot Kerala NASARANIS –
Hindus of NAZARENE sect was converted to Christians of NAZERETH city.
Nazareth never existed in any ancient book or writing-- ever
Today-- to dry up Pampa river in Kerala and screw Sabarimala the Nasranis conduct the Maranmon Convention. Their minds have been poisoned by the white invader.
They would rather be the dregs of PHOREN Christianity than the cream of Hinduism
Epiphanius in his Panarion described orthodox Jews as praying three times a day for the destruction of the Nazarenes.
The curse: "Let the Nazarenes and the heretics perish as in a moment, let them be blotted out of the book of the living and let them not be written with the righteous." (quoted in Marcel Simon's Jewish Sects At the Time of Jesus, Fortress Press, Philadelphia, 1967, page 136.) See Psalm 69: 28.
It is Kosher injected BULL that Muslims believe Zechariah to have been the guardian of Mary, mother of Jesus.
Muslims must now realize how JEW Rothschild has made Sunni and Shia brothers fight.
And (Zechariah) said: "O my Lord, my bones decay, my head is white and hoary, yet in calling You, O Lord, I have never been deprived.
But I fear my relatives after me; and my wife is barren. So grant me a successor of Your own
Who will be heir to me, and heir to the house of Jacob; and make him obedient to You, O Lord"
— Qur'an, sura 19 (Maryam), ayat 4–6
As a gift from God, Zechariah was given a son by the name of John (Yaḥyā), a name specially chosen for this child alone.
YAHYA KHAN , THE PAKISTANI WAS A JEW ( YAHYA FOR JOHN )
Muslim theology maintains that Zechariah, along with John the Baptist and Jesus, ushered in a new era of prophets – all of whom came from the priestly descent of Amram, the father of the prophet Aaron. This BULLSHIT theory is given by JEW Rothschild.
And Zachariah and John, and Jesus and Elias: all in the ranks of the righteous.
— Qur'an, sura 6 (Al-An'am), ayah 85
The JEWS have injected BULL into Islamic Hadiths , that John the Baptist was a relative of Jesus ( who never exited )
In March 2021 Pope Francis became the first leader of the Roman Catholic Church to visit Iraq. He was keen to see the white clad Mandaeans..
In Kerala all men wore white. Except the labor class . This changed only in 1970
As the pope met with local Christian and Muslim leaders, the names of other, smaller religious groups found in Iraq also made the news. One of these was likely unfamiliar to the majority of those in the English-speaking world: the Mandaeans.
Mandaeism, is an esoteric religion whose literature remains mostly in the hands of priestly families. Their sacred texts are written in a distinctive alphabet used only for that purpose. The contents and meaning of these works are largely unknown even to most Mandaeans, never mind others.
The Mandaeans’ central ritual is baptism: immersion in flowing water, which is referred to in Mandaic as “living water,” ( Gange is lining water ) a phrase that appears in the Bible’s New Testament as well.
Baptism in Mandaean faith is not a one-time action denoting conversion as in Christianity. Instead it is a repeated rite of seeking forgiveness and cleansing from wrongdoing,
“Baptist” today usually denotes a form of Christianity, but Mandaeans aren’t Christians.
In the first half of the 20th century, the Mandaeans received significant attention from New Testament scholars who thought that their high view of John the Baptist might mean they were the descendants of his disciples. Many historians think that Jesus of Nazareth ( who never existed) was a disciple of John the Baptist
Estimates vary as to how many Mandaeans there are today. Some can still be found in their historic homelands in Iraq and Iran. However, persecution in those places has led to the creation of small but significant Mandaean diaspora communities in such places as Australia, Sweden and the U.S.
This scattering, combined with Mandaeans’ dwindling numbers, has made it much harder for them to preserve their identity and pass their traditions along to the next generation. Mandaeans do not accept converts or consider children of marriages with non-Mandaeans to be part of their religious community, which has also contributed to their dwindling population.
Within the Gospels of the New Testament, John acts as a precursor to the main show of Jesus, prophesying his coming religious revolution (Jesus pays it back by talking up John's earthly greatness in Matthew 11:11). Then again, he's more than a herald and, for some of his followers, may have even seemed like he was the messiah himself.
That's because the four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) as well as the book of Acts, all discuss John the Baptist in varying levels of detail.
All of these texts more or less paint him as a precursor to Jesu... His baptism of Jesus is usually marked as the beginning of Jesus' ministry and the Christian era. But, as Britannica notes, the Gospels writers were seemingly careful to not give John the Baptist too much credit, lest he overshadow Jesus who was cooked up in 325 AD .. . Helena took Christ from Krishna at the First Council of Niceae in 325 AD where she sat on the Pope’s chair
In the Bible cooked up by Jewess Helena towering prophet Hindu John the Baptist was reduced to a mere preacher whose baptism of Jesus isn't even mentioned in the text.
When it comes to John the Baptist, we do have some evidence outside of the Bible. Nobody heard of Jesus or the Bible before 325 AD.
According to the World History Encyclopedia, 1st century Jewish historian Flavius Josephus mentions John in the writer's account of the reign of Herod Antipas of Galilee. During an account of Herod's rather shocking marital switch-ups (he had divorced his first wife to marry the widow of his half-brother, a big no-no for many observers at the time), Josephus brings up "John, that was called the Baptist."
In his "Antiquities of the Jews," Josephus writes that John "was a good man" who encouraged the people to act righteously and so garnered a pretty large following.
While John the Baptist may seem like a pretty singular figure, the truth is that he wasn't the only preacher working in the region at the time.. Apollonius of Tyana was the greatest.. Helena modelled Jesus after Apollonius of Tyana
John the Baptist was well-known for asceticism, with his desert home, rough clothing, and a highly restricted Vegan diet with honey
The common story often relayed in sermons and Sunday school lessons is that John the Baptist and Jesus were cousins.. Vadakayil says MY LEFT BALL.
Bible says that John's mother, Elizabeth, and Jesus' mother, Mary ( who never existed) , were somehow related BRAAAYYYYY
While the Gospels at least note that Jesus and John were essentially kinsmen, there are deeper similarities between their ministries and how the two men were received. Bible Odyssey says that John seems to have preceded Jesus by some period of time, given that Jesus came forth to be baptized by his relation.
Palestine at the time of John the Baptist was an unsettled place.
After Hindu Herod's death, his kingdom of Judea was split into constituent parts, with a small part going to Jews areas and others more populated by Hindu gentiles. Eventually, Hindu Roman governors were sent in to manage the region
Though John the Baptist is depicted as an independent preacher, he has strong connections with Hindu groups like the Nazirites or Essenes.
John the Baptist had strong connections to the Hindu Essenes, a group of ascetics, including a group living at Qumran. Essenes had nothing, zilch to do with Jews.. Israel cooked up that Essenes are Jewish so that they can grab the Dead Sea Scrolls and shine .so what else is new ? Jews can shine only if they steal.
Ritualized immersion in water ( like what Hindus do in the Ganges ) was never part of the Jewish tradition.
First century historian Flavius Josephus says that John the Baptist was killed for having too many dedicated followers.
HINDU FLAVIUS JOSEPHUS DID NOT WRITE A WORD ABOUT JESUS CHRIST OR THE BIBLE—WHY? BUT HE WROTE ABOUT KERALA SAGE APOLLONIUS OF TYANA
Mandaean belief system is deeply rooted in real history. It has nothing to do with Judaism
Part of John the Baptist's story is his imprisonment and eventual beheading courtesy of an order from Judean ruler Herod Antipas.
The path of John's disembodied cranium gets pretty murky after it was reportedly presented to Herod on a platter.. At least four different locations claim to hold John the Baptist's head now.
Yet, given that John is only known to have had the one skull, only one of these locations could be potentially right (or none of them at all). They currently include the Umayyad Mosque in Damascus, Rome's Church of San Silvestro in Capite, and Munich's Residenz Museum.
Atlas Obscura reports that Amiens Cathedral in France also contains a human skull displayed in an elaborate reliquary, collected by a French crusader in the 13th century. However, with no way of confirming whether or not one of these skulls is that of John the Baptist — there are no DNA samples to compare these to, for instance — the fate of John's head remains a mystery.
The BBC's History Extra notes that relics were essentially tourist attractions, and a town or city that could display a piece of a big-name saint or at least an object associated with them could make a pretty penny.
Given Hindu John the Baptists’s close ties to cooked up Jew Jesus Christ, it's no wonder that various sites claim to have bits and pieces of the Baptist, including his right arm (via . Germany's Aachen Cathedral also purports to hold the cloth that swathed John the Baptist's head immediately after his execution (along with what's believed to be Jesus' swaddling cloth and his loincloth).
One Bulgarian church has perhaps the best claim to genuine relics of John the Baptist. According to National Geographic, bones were discovered in a marble reliquary within the church's ruins in 2010.
They included a tooth, part of a right hand, a section of cranium, a forearm, and a rib. Larger animal bones were also included in the mix, perhaps to bulk up what would otherwise be a kind of scanty-looking array. Dating and DNA testing of the knucklebone indicate that it belonged to a 1st century man who lived somewhere in the Middle East.
John the Baptist shows up in a few non-Christian traditions, from Mandaeanism to Islam, where the faithful's takes on his role seem about as varied as the number of people discussing John. Even within Christianity, there are plenty of opportunities to present new takes on this enigmatic figure. Take the role of John the Baptist within the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (popularly known as the LDS or Rothschild’s Mormon church).
Jew Joseph Smith claimed that John the Baptish reappeared to Smith and Oliver Cowdery in 1829 Pennsylvania to ordain them into the church's Aaronic priesthood, now an important feature. BAAAP REH !
Jesus makes it clear that John the Baptist is "the Elijah" (Matthew 11:14 & Matthew 17:11-12) who was promised to come in Malachi 4:5. This is also explained in Luke 1:16-17. Elijah appears with Moses during the Transfiguration of Jesus. Elijah is also a figure in various Christian folk traditions.
BULL by Vatican !
Mandaeans believe in marriage and procreation, and in the importance of leading an ethical and moral lifestyle in this world, placing a high priority upon family life. Mandaeans will, however, abstain from strong drink and meat.
JOHN THE BAPTIST IS ONE OF THE TWO PATRON SAINTS OF FREEMASONRY, THE OTHER BEING JOHN THE EVANGELIST.
Templars and Masons hold John the Baptist as a more important person than Jesus the Christ.
Leonardo Da Vinci was a huge fan of John the Baptist. Davinci's last painting was of John the Baptist, in which it shows him making the famous "John Gesture". This gesture can be seen in a few of his paintings, most notably The Last Supper.
Leonardo's "Virgin of the Rocks" is another strange painting that shows Jesus, the Virgin Mary and John the Baptist with an Angel. The strangest thing about the painting is the fact that the original version had the angel protecting "John the Baptist" giving the John Gesture right over the baby
In the Last Supper a figure to the left of Jesus making the John Gesture. The figure is very strange, it almost appears he is lunging out towards Jesus and shoving his finger in his face.
The freemasons have an interesting connection with John the Baptist in the York Rite degrees.
The early Freemasons were called John's Brothers
Among American Freemasons The Feast of St. John, the Baptist, is celebrated on June 24th
St. John, the Baptist, was patron saint of Freemasonry.
Early Masons were called "St. John's Masons"
