"Teaching ancient roman philosophy as well that and and you know that's that's a powerful stance in the world and not one mention of god or anything in all of that right. It's so it was really and you're right. That did open the door. And then i could go back to the gospels and go okay. Here's a teacher. Who's telling his students. He doesn't really talk about being born again or or heaven and hell. All that damnation salvation. All that stuff isn't really big on jesus list east talking. Basically about feed starving people heal people offer comfort and love one another and again and again you know that last that last week of his life and when he says to his disciples that in the future. When i'm gone people will know who my followers are by. How well they love one another. And so that's the dust the transformation that's the meta neue. That's the enlightenment is to stop being here just for me but to start being here for everyone else. And that's a connection between buddhism and teachings of jesus that is just just unmistakable. Yeah i agree. I think that there are parallels there so shifting gears now well i got one more question that i wanna touch based on christianity and then we'll move into buddhism and then And this is a question that i have hard time finding the answer to use. I'm hoping that With your thirty years of experience you'll be able to help me solve this one so okay. So we're talking about. So jesus is in its disciples live on right and then somewhere between not for very long most get killed but yeah right but somewhere between when jesus dies and the disciples dies a die Christianity is formed in the roman government accepts it in in gets rid of paganism favor of christianity. Can you do you have a good basis of understanding of how that happened. What was the parameters like. Why why did the roman government after persecuting jesus then later adopt his religion in favor of paganism. Yeah well i you know..

"We're not kansas anymore. About twelve years ago and it had to do with a rising echo chambers which are just greater now than ever yeah absolutely I wanna follow up on that idea of how those echo chambers are connecting with us. Say again welcome into about a lot of people jump in Since we've been talking. Thank you for jumping in. My name is james. Grogan down in chula vista down by the border in san diego larry osborne committee from north county Up in oceanside Area and so Thank you guys jumping in. We're talking about what unites us in the importance of that around our theme together. The great collaboration coming out of the heart of jesus prayer johnson team for unity in the church. Larry just our first audience question here kind of that idea of you know echo chambers and even within a household people are choosing these different voices. If you will the question is do you think it's realistic for people in the social media media echo chambers to go to church with each other well yes. It's it's absolutely true but the problem is that's going to be a very mature christian. So yeah i mean. Among his apostles is inner circle he had signed salad and matthew the former tax collector. And there's no verse about which one one in terms of convincing the other while politically as far as oppressive roman government and let the right thing to do was so certainly. We can't do that but the problem is if we're going to be going into other world and making disciples here will frankly. Here's part of the problem. We think discipleship is finding christians making him better christians. I give a discipleship pastor. That's using their. They're going in all the world to make moth. They taste followers. Disciples is not about special ops christians as people who don't know jesus and introducing them to jesus so at that level is impossible to get them become nope. That's what jesus does to us. Jesus turns former enemies into brothers and sisters ness-like he turned former enemies into sons and daughters of the king. And so there's this idealistic idea out. There that says will come on. We can do that. And i go. I totally agree with you. If you want a roomful of mature christians of but i would encourage reading my book accidental pharisee. And you'll get my whole download on the problem with that that We think we're presenting. jesus sebastian. What we're doing is raising. The bar entry that he came to lower and pay for and so absolutely great friends of completely different than i'd i'd family members with deep love and get along and love hanging out and we might once in a while. Talk about issues or say we're just gonna have to agree to disagree with that's our maturity at work and I i love to reach people who don't even know jesus and i love to have a church full of people who are immature on their way to maturity and so. That's that's the issue. We've got to be aware of where we're where we're ministry not. Just have a leader's club. Yeah i i think of what you just said there. The idea that. I know mike sue. Also your friends who led the church. I league now for twenty plus years. He's always tell our church..

"To meaningful connection real connection face to face connection this this phone. This is not connection. This is clicking. And what i want to show you today. Is that your connection to others. Is directly related to your connection to christ turn your bibles to john chapter twenty. If you've got a bible not okay. We're gonna put it up on the screen. John chapter twenty verse. One thousand nine hundred. And in this passage we find the disciples. Just after jesus's death says this on the evening of that first day of the week when the disciples were together with the doors locked for fear of the jewish leaders. Jesus came and stood among them and said peace. Be with you after this. He showed them his hands inside. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the lord. Today i wanna tell you they. You were not meant to do. this alone. Was pray lord. Would you used me today. Would you speak through me. There are so many people who are lonely today right now even in this room full of people and even people who are watching online. God we want to hear from you today. Would you challenge us. Would you encourage us which speak to us. We are listening. In jesus name i pray amen so you were created for relationship. You were created to experience closeness with god and with others they go together and in this passage of scripture. So much has happened leading up to this moment. The disciples have been following. Jesus for three years. And they've been under the impression that jesus going to leave the jewish people in a rebellion against the oppressive roman government even though jesus told them on multiple occasions that was not when he was here to do and he warned them and he told them that he would be crucified. Somehow it all of the fun and the miracles in all of the amazing things that they saw. Jesus do they missed that point and jesus their leader their friend their lord is dead. He was crucified on friday night. And now it's sunday night. And not only has jesus been crucified but his body is missing and they're afraid that the jewish leaders are coming for them next so they're together with the doors locked and jesus comes and he appears to them. When i read this passage and i saw that they were together. I wondered how did they all end up back in this place because just three days before they were all in that same room taking passover together. That's the part remember. Jesus washed their feet and he served them bread and wine. We call the last supper and they sat at the table and jesus predicted judas betrayal and he predicted peter's denial and then that night they went to the garden of guests to pray and the jesus is arrested and then later that night. Peter denies ever knowing christ three times and just like jesus said and then the next day jesus goes to the cross and they're at the foot of the cross. The only disciple out of twelve is john and then by friday night jesus has died and he's laid in a tomb not by any one of the twelve people that he had spent the last three years with he's buried by joseph. Ehrman thea and make a demon. The disciples are scattered. Because they're they're confused and they're afraid like if i get associated with him they're gonna come for me next. This isn't the way that they expected to turn out and everything that they have been working.

"Bowel study this becomes less personal in. I'm not sure that i like that. What was the chapter. The siding center a bod's wheel. Oh wait a minute. I thought this chapter was all about me. That's what it said. 'cause we studied the martyr's in our home school long time ago. But you know you read these stories about the different martyrs. And i would think have day allow that to happen halliday. Some of them were burnt at the state you know horribly bad beheaded turned upside down aged hung upside damn beheaded all these warble horrible atrocities and never denied the lord never denied in all for the church all for the for the church not for them as individual people's but but if you read some of these stories it's about god's church god's will the body the body and i think that's why sometimes we don't understand peter you know when peter goes in front of everybody we get that when he was like. Hey at your bag. Jesus's ain't nothing gonna happen. I got it you know. I mean he cuts off the ear of the soldier. He's he's all that warrior and then things just start happening and he's by himself and we look at that being by himself as like. Oh he just this faltered. He just totally messed up the truth. Is there a collective group of people. These these disciples walked with each other and walked with and here. He is by himself. he doesn't have his posse anymore. He doesn't have anybody in. Death is real by death is so real. It can happen so quick. You know what was about to happen to christ. It happened every day. Every day the crosses were along the road. Pete so people could see what happened if you win against the roman government and we just really dog peter. When part of the part of the stripe came from his community group. We act like. We wouldn't have done that exactly. We could have done better.

"Why but who gave them that authority. Why is it that this place can decide that this history that we don't know about can't be shown us we're not allowed to read it or know about it who gave them the authority as a matter of fact. Who gave anyone any authority over you. Who why is it that governments in churches in militaries and police states. Why is it that anybody has any authority over you is that does that mean that they're better than you know. No one is more human than you. The fact that those things exists is because there's control control over you and what you think and what you spend your money on. That's just reality. we live in. i live in it. I exist in it. But i find it harder and harder to accept the norms of our society and one of those norms that i find hard to accept is the christian religion. It's a beautiful thing. And i wouldn't want it to be taken away but i do think that there are some things some understandings that are being taught fundamentally wrong or understood wrong. If jesus was the only son of god what does that make us. He created us but we're not his sons or daughters. Does that make sense. Why would he be the only one not to take away from anything that he did. He's possibly one of the greatest human beings that ever lived. He taught compassion. He taught love and he taught generosity in a place in a time with there is very little of it and let's do a little history reminder here when he was around the jewish rabbis of the time or the jewish hierarchy of their religious faith. They condemned him. They took him and gave him to the roman government and the roman government didn't even want to persecute him. They said there's nothing wrong with this man. But yet the jewish leadership the religious hierarchy. They're the ones that condemned him to being crucified. I want everybody to think about this really really hard. What was it that he did the condemned him.

"Many of the discoveries and inventions were made in the city of rome. Romans invented the calendar. Who used today however it was inaccurate and did not follow the seasons. So the emperor julius caesar made some corrections and improved it to the version. We know today one that is based on the sun. Three hundred sixty five days and twelve months and matches the seasons now that we know something about julius caesar. Let's learn about who he really was. Guys julius caesar was born in july one hundred bc in suburbia a city of rome. His parents were nobles in the city. They were well known but not rich as a young boy julius. Caesar started his education at the young age of six and learned important skills from his tutor. He was taught to develop excellent speaking skills and exceptional leadership qualities. It was only because his parents wanted him to become a noble just like them and even become a king someday. By the time he turned six his father passed away and he became the head of the household. All of the responsibilities of the house. Were now his and he had to represent his house. In the court of nobles at the age of seventeen julius got married to cornelia the daughter of a powerful politician during that time there was a fight between his two uncles. Julius didn't want to fight with his family members and thought it was foolish so to escape the fight. He joined the army and left rome while in the army. Julius fought many wars and became a brave warrior who started getting recognition in the army quickly began to reach higher and higher ranks in the government. He made friends with many influential leaders namely crassus who has a wealthy businessman and general pompey. Who was the best military commander back then. Influential means having power and wealth. By the time. Caesar returned to rome. He was famous among the people and was loved widely due to his victories and his good speaking skills by the age of forty he was elected as the console. Console was the uppermost rink in the roman government similar to a president. He remained in this position for one year then. He was appointed the governor of a province named gall as a result he was granted four legions. Legions are large groups of soldiers in the military who protect the cities and during wars fight battles. Julius was an extraordinary general goal surrounded by tribes who did not live according to the roman rule the military feared them as they had a very strong army however the troops were divided among themselves and fought with each other taking advantage of their own conflicts. Caesar led his troops into battle against them and became victorious due to his smart thinking. He managed to conquer all of gaul history. Teach again site gained him. The respect of his army strategic insight means the ability to find solutions to big problems after his success. Julius caesar was considered to be as good in war strategy as the great general pompey nowadays historians consider him as one of the best military commanders in history while he was in position as governor. The politics in rome became very aggressive. Many leaders started to dislike. Julius caesar because of his success even general pompey who used to be a good friend of julius became jealous. This jealousy turned hostile and the tooled friends turned into rivals while julius caesar was supported and loved by the people pompey had the support of the corrupt people who actually nobles and rich businessmen. Caesar then decided to run for console or president again. He announced his intentions to gain the support of his people but the roman senate was against him because they didn't like him. The senate asked julius to give up his post as the general of the army. But caesar refused. The government cannot accept that he had dared to defy them so they called him a traitor of the nation. Both sides declared war. This was the great civil war of rome that lasted four years. Caesar began marching his army towards rome to fight against the senate general pompey was leading the soldiers of the senate but caesar won the battle and gained total control of rome. He kept fighting pompey till he finally managed to beat him eighteen months later by this time he had chased him all the way to egypt. Pompey fled to save his life but was captured by the pharaoh who had him executed the pharaohs were the ancient rulers of egypt. This victory in war may julius caesar the most powerful man in the world. He returned to his home. The roman empire in forty six bc he managed to crush everyone who resisted him in the government and was appointed dictator perpetuo which means dictator forever when he came to power roma suffering from financial or money issues because of the wars. It was always fighting. It was very expensive to wage war and sent all of the workers off to battle. Julius changed the government and made improvements for the poor he even passed. Various laws ultimately bringing rome back to its former glory. He made other changes to rome and transformed it into a magnificent city. He ordered the rebuilding of the great city. Carthage which was destroyed in the punic wars. It was a part of ancient civilization and later became the second largest city in rome. One of his best achievements was the julian calendar which is the basis of our calendar. We use today. Not only was julius. Caesar a warrior he was very learned. He was also said to be one of the best writers in rome. He wrote several poems and many books on march fifteenth. Forty four bc. Some people have rome including other leaders in the government where unhappy with his rule. They thought that he was too powerful which he was and he would destroy the roman empire which was based on a republic ruled by a group of leaders rather than one person so they decided to put an end to his rule. Cassius and brutus to julius friends led the plot to assassinate him. When julius caesar entered the senate they crept up on him assassinated him. His death is still remembered. Today on the fifteenth of march. As the ides of march. Julius caesar was very ambitious which means he worked very hard to be smart and strong so he could become powerful and his country. He increases power through violence and eventually took control of all of rome. Historical people like have many sides which means they do some good things but also some bad things as well take some time to reflect on this and think of people you know who may have good traits and not so good traits but regardless julius caesar will go down in history as one of the most influential leaders of all time. We hope you enjoyed this. Episode about julius. Caesar be sure to tune in next monday for a new episode..

"Is how does god for lack of a better word had fix it. And there's a pastor that. I'll always quote when i talk about this. Who will often say we've got to remember. This isn't plan b. god and start this human screwed up and go okay. I got a plan b. This was he always had plan a was jesus. He was going to send his son jesus to do for us what we could never do for ourselves. We can never be good enough perfect enough to be a right relationship with god but jesus came on this earth. He lived a perfect life fully knowing temptation fully living in imperfect circumstances just like we do but he lived a perfect life and because of that he was able to die on a cross he was crucified. Essentially he was murdered by the roman government and through that he took on the sins of the world and was a so now. God can look at us through jesus and we are forgiven so even though you and i can never be perfect because of what jesus did if we place our trust in jesus and we talk all the time but if we place our trust in jesus god sees us through christ jesus through jesus and sees as forgiven as perfect so back to that relationship he can be in right relationship with us which again is his ultimate desire is to. He already fully knows you because he made you. But he wants you to fully now him and he wants to do the life with you. Walk in daily communion with you. So that's what it means to have a relationship with god. It's knowing him. It's being known by him and learning to live differently because we know him. that's amazing. that's amazing. I so when one of the things i was thinking of. Is you know when we think about like when we're looking at god from the outside you know. I think one of the things is like. How do you approach godwin. You're such a mess you know it's like there's this fear of like i can never going to church. I could never like hang out with. Christians i could never like. I'm not invited because people like me aren't invited. Anything about it is like people like us are invited that because of jesus. We don't have to clean yourself up to go into church. Anyone who says you should or you need to is wrong. Like that totally undermines the whole thing. It's churches a place. Christianity is a place where we get to come in exactly as we are messy as can be and because of jesus like we get a fresh start total do over in life and we get to be in a relationship with a most amazing god ever not after. We have cleaned up but in the process. Because of jesus yes and navarro gives us so many examples of jesus literally doing that like jesus sought out the people that were considered like the biggest centers of the day like it says he hung out with tax collectors and prostitutes and people who tax collectors were folks that were financially abusing and stealing from other people or obviously we can imagine the center of a prostitute or i mean he he was seeking out hurt and the broken and the people that certainly felt like i am way too far. For god's ever consider being in a relationship with me. That who jesus went after. I love that i love it would. So how do we say like yes. I'm in to like. How do we actually begin a relationship with god. Do we pray a prayer to church. Like if we're if we're interested yes what are we doing. okay. I love this question. Because i think if you ask. Twelve believers twelve people. Who said i'm into god or call themselves chrysler's whatever how like. What was the moment when you became a christian. I bet you would get twelve. Different answers in your story is like one of my favorite for those so i mean i i want to hear you talk about it like what was the moment when you look back and go that. I said yes. Got him in. Were you in a church service and a preacher invited you to raise your hand and pray a certain prayer so actually might cry. Which seems appropriate. No i do cry be. Weren't i think that this is a similar situation. A lot of people. Because i think we have a couple hesitations when it comes to becoming a christian one of them is like i'm too messed up for god like he could never want someone like me another one is. I don't think. I need god like i'm going through life of just fine. And that seems like putting a whole lot of limitations on the life. It is going just fine for me really. That was me forever Another hesitation. I ways if i relate to god like i don't know if he has anything in common with me or if i would even like the kind of life that that christianity would lead to which. I was so surprised by the fact that that wasn't true. All like god is not vanilla and boring shoes and I don't know like things you don't want to do. He is his life beyond life. He's extra color. He is fireworks and best friends and and Just better life than you can even imagine. And that's what. I got to find out but so at the time though. I didn't think i needed god until i did. And basically every part of my life fell apart all of the time. When i was in college and that's why i love talking about different relationships so much here because there was a point where my friendships were a mess. My relationship with myself was terrible like so unhappy so mean myself. I did not like myself. i was broken up with by thought it was gonna marry. I didn't have a relationship with god. Basically the only thing that was going okay was like school. And i was kinda thinking towards my career. That was the only part of my life. it wasn't in shambles that fell apart later. But so that's kind of the circumstance i was in. I was just heartbroken. In every way i can think of and that's when i got to go study abroad for the semester which is great. I feel like if you're broken and you can leave the country perfect of do it. So i'm i'm setting abroad and for the very first time. I'm kind of considering. Like what would our relationship with god like because i just for the first time felt like doing life to the best of my ability and it's not work it's not working..

"That zero price for the greens. Good that people are you know freeing their slaves at least at least some good came out of this insanity but a lot of people probably star result necessarily say they fr. They freed them from their immediate circumstance. Only to have them enslaved to the whim of the government at the because now they're dependent on the government for their their wheat grains. Their you know their food and let's not forget about the fact that you know the these this price fixing in the first place it always creates a shortage and i talked about this a lot. When the classic that was sa- gaming console came out and it was like. Oh god it. There's a shortage it's impossible to get but it wasn't impossible to get. It was impossible to get at that thirty dollar price point right but there was never a shortage of these things. There was a supply them. You just had to pay more. Because that's how supply-and-demand work if there is if the supply is too low and the demand is high enough people will pay whatever they're whatever the seller is asking so in forty-five beasts the these. Scalping is what they refer to it as it was the scalping that prevented there from being a shortage right. Yeah yeah because that's how it works. I mean look at secondary markets for even like tickets to concerts and sporting events. And that kind of thing you know. That's it's the same thing. It's just supply and demand. The demand is way higher than the supply. So you're gonna pay more if you want one of those things. We almost ran into that with the toll concert that i went to two thousand nineteen. Which was we bought some of the very last tickets and we didn't know that like we're going to be able to get any we in fact had to separate our group into three different sections because of not being able to get tickets but at least one of us was going to have to go through one of these back channels in order to buy one and ticketmaster and all of these other companies are ticket bastard. Yeah they're going out of their way to make this impossible to do now. You have to have your id and it sent to your smartphone so you can't just outside the venue and sell it so you're they're just preventing people from being able to see the concerts. They want to see yup yup. So in forty five julius. Caesar discovered that almost one third of the roman citizen re was receiving their grain supply for free from the state so they created the problem. Where one third of the people were basically sucking off the government teat. You know what that was the inevitable result of giving away the food that they needed to survive so to deal with the financial cost of these supplies of wheat the roman government resorted to debasement of the currency that is to say inflation price-fixing of grain shortages of supply rising budgetary problems for the roman government monetary debasement and resulting worsening price inflation were continual occurrence through long periods of roman history. Well obviously i mean they. They can't actually pay for this sort of thing without inflating the currency without increasing.

There are people who are rich and there are people who are poor. And the and. The bible says james as pastor of the church. He addresses this one issue. He says that people who come into your congregations. That are two kinds of people that come one comes with a car. That is a badge. Car car is something that you drive from eight to be. That's what it is and any cow will do that. But a certain badge gives you a sense of. I've arrived the other car. Just gets you there. But certain badge i have arrived and everybody knows i have a right. That's the difference so he says safe. For example somebody comes through the certain of and they come and they and the whole notices the. Wow that must cost them a lot and then when they come out they come with such nice suit. Say it's our money. I don't know why i've money but anyway money and loose you look at it. It's like nice italian leather shoes. The belt is from another country. The smell is from another country. Everything about them is fantastic. Every every every accessory is matching and they walk in and people already know. Here's a million dollars. Walking in and the moment they see it what happens is they gravitate towards it and they say come come come come. Come sit in this place. Sit in the prominent place and the same time you see somebody who's just coming in a car that stopped halfway. They had to push halfway and then they start again and push again start again push again and then finally they reach year and it looks beaten down and the whole world also knows they arrive because the sound is loud to to to to to like bomb explosion. You know i've even one such guy you know what i'm talking about. It's like amazing. You're thinking you're mike mountains cars on explosion here. It's exploding but the reality is they come when they come your your the way you look at them and the way you think where. They should be seated. You have already judged and the bible says. Isn't that evil. You have pre conceived ideas. You have prejudice against somebody. You have already discriminated in your heart. And because of the way they appear to you you already started to differentiate the way you treat them and the bible says that one was the one that he brought it out as an issue.

"That exhausting time. For jesus and his disciples during our last couple of podcast episodes. Jesus has been teaching in jerusalem during a festival. And then he's been teaching in the synagogue. He's healed several men. Some of whom may have been planned by the pharisees and the religious leaders and he's healed on the sabbath day that has created much friction between jesus and these leaders but when he tries to get away he is followed by the crowd. Maybe more like a mob of people people from all over the region from miles and miles away so he continues to heal and dr demons out of people. Then luke tells us that jesus went up auto mountainside to pray. He stays all night long and prayer with god. At daybreak he calls his disciples to him that we have no idea how many people were following. Jesus at this time it may have been a few dozen or even a few hundred. We're just not told. But we are told that jesus chooses twelve men to be apostles and then luke names them for us. I we have simon who jesus would later call peter. We met him in episode eight when he loaned his boat to jesus for teaching purposes jesus then rewards him with a massive catch andrew. Who is peter's brother assignments brother james and john. These are the fishermen sons of zebedee that we met an episode eight along with simon philip. Barth allah you matthew. Matthew we met before he was collecting taxes by the road in episode nine. And then thomas james yes another james. This would known as the son of alpha's simon simon has zealot. He's one who advocated the violent overthrow the roman government judas in here judas blamed as the son of james. This is not the judas who is a betrayer of jesus. That's judas iscariot who is the betrayer and he is one of the apostles too. So what so special about these guys. They were labeled apostles and that term is a direct transliteration from the greek word apostolos. That word means to send off in other words and apostle is a messenger. This is also a special appointment from jehovah. God through jesus christ apostles were among the foundations of the church. And i'm talking about the universal church not eating one denomination. That's according to paul's letter to the church emphasis and one of the qualifications for this appointment is that they have the resurrected jesus. We'll talk about resurrection in a future episode but for our purposes today an apostle is one who is seen jesus after his been raised from the dead and he has been sent off to tell of that story. All of these men except for judas iscariot could and would make this claim there will be a couple of others added to this list but for now these men are the apostles appointed directly by jesus while he lived physically on the earth. with the exception of judah. Scary it and john. All of these men would be executed for telling this story. Luke tells us that jesus and his apostles good down the mountain and stand on a level place..

"Now, for many years, I've been fascinated by this culture who were described in the fourth century B C E by Julius Caesar and other Roman writers. Druitt orders or suppressed by the Roman government under a that first century Roman emperors and had disappeared from the written record by the second century. I wanted to know the facts about the Druids. I finally found a book on this subject that I could trust. It's called Secrets of the Druids. From Indo European origins to modern practice, and the author Theresa Cross is our guest for two hours tonight. After reading it, I discovered how much I had been miss informed. I have to admit this book was a great challenge in particular due to the many words and Gaelic Irish Welsh language is etcetera. I guarantee I will embarrass myself a couple of times tonight, Or maybe more than that. Because I have to struggle through them. But I am so happy I did because it was well worth the struggle to relearn everything I thought I already knew. Drawing on comparative mythology and linguistics, archaeological evidence in Entomology. Theresa crawls offers readers a comprehensive course in the history and development of the Celtic spiritually tradition and its lower reconstructing the diuretic faith. From the remnants that have survived and the dedicated study of scholarly sources. She also reveals parallels with other Indo European traditions, such as the similarities between Celtic and basic Hindu beliefs and practices. She chronicles the ethics and spiritually teachings of Drew. It is, um and the Celtic faith and examines what happened to these beliefs during centuries of Christian ization. Theresa Cross has been a Celtic scholar since 1982 and was a member of numerous Celtic cultural organizations, including the Scottish Society of Dallas Southwest Count Celtic. Music Association, clan Mackenzie Society and the Irish P E. C. She is the author of the Truth about the Druids and a frequent contributor to the independent Kilt. She lived in Kingman, Arizona. Welcome the 21st Century Radio Theresa Cross. Thank you very much. I really enjoyed reading your book. It was a little tough for me, but I really enjoyed it. Druids. Oh, off. It wasn't too tough.

And it was first by the well and it was rush and they did a They did, huh? Okay job on it, but This time on a new addition, they decided to call it secrets of the Druids. And, uh, This fight. The title, the secret forms of secrets of the dirges that they didn't probably realize themselves that they were, they were inheritors of an Indo European tradition. I don't know if they could have been aware of it or not, but certainly the word into European Has a name for language family. Was not created until the late 18th century. And 19th century. So Even that Well, I will reveal what the biggest secret of the druids are is rather, um Later on the program because it has to deal with Uh, Class of poets called the Feely F A l I f I l I dhe and more Modern Irish. Um Who are you? Poets, but the were originally meant fear. And we'll find out more about them as we go. Well, Druids and their magic Laura and rituals fascinate everyone with images of standing stones, mistletoe, golden sickles, white robed priests and powerful sorcerers. But Who were they really tell us Theresa, who were the Celtic peoples and who were the drew? It's Well. Nowadays people who are descended from Gaelic speaking Irish and Scots gales of the highlands and islands.

And Dawlish was a P Celtic language drug. It too, that the different strains P Celtic and cute help, but Uh, Julius Caesar. Of all the Classical commentaries. Have the in my opinion, the best information on Dawlish Druids. Um Because he knew a druid named this the occupants of the Eid way. Two and 60 VC came to the Roman Senate. Because they were having trouble out of neighbors. They wanted to join. Roman Empire and address the Roman Senate and 60 VC DeBakey Our kiss himself came there. He was turned down.

"That's why luke did as well although luke. He emphasizes mary's part of the lineage. But either way. We see then that this anton is pointing to jesus as both the ancestor of david. And the descendant of david. And because of the incarnation god and man in that big church word the hypothetic union that just means the union between christ's divinity and his humanity. That hyper static. Union is indicated in this. Oh anton aerobics jesse so. He is a son of david and interestingly millennia ago in the ancient times of jacob and rachel bethlehem was called froth. Jacob buried his beloved wife rachel. They're the one. He waited for seven years. Actually it was more than seven His father-in-law actually tricked him into marrying the the oldest daughter. I because he knew that he wanted to marry rachel really badly But jacob buried rachel in this land of effort and it means beyond the tower well the scriptures actually say that he buried her beyond the tower of eater after she died giving birth to benjamin the youngest of his sons that's in genesis chapter thirty five versus nineteen through twenty one and the tower of eater where jacob buried rachel was called the migdol eater or the tower of the flock. It's probably ater actually the way they pronounce those vowels but ruth and boaz gleaned wheat and they married in that very same area we see that in route chapter four verses eleven through thirteen king david was born and crowned king of israel. Right there by samuel and we just read part of that and i mean sixteen and bethlehem efforts with meaning. The house of bread of fruitfulness later came to be known as the city of david and it was shortened to just bethlehem and we all know. Then joseph and mary as david's descendants were in bethlehem at the time of jesus's birth because the roman government had ordered everyone to their ancestral hometown for census and taxation and as was prophesied. Jesus was a direct descendant from the line of david born in his city. And that as i said was a prophecy out of mica chapter five verse two which says but you bethlehem f though you are little among the thousands of judah yet out of you ca shall come forth to me the one to be ruler in israel who's going forth are from old from everlasting in that cool so you see that prophecy Way back of.

It has been An enemy of faith. And that is politics entering the church. In the very early days of the church. Ah, during My days on this planet. The government didn't care. The Roman government didn't care. The ones that cared were Religionists. Those who wanted to focus on the controlling of people. Make sure that the message Stayed in the focus of their beliefs and their believes only The amount of Political influence that the church had. Hey, and, uh, starting I always had a place but starting in the Early nineties. Is when it really started to take hold. And become this place of I'm focusing on the politics of it in the assumption that Being conservative or being Republican. Was synonymous with being a Christian. Is now a place where it's become a problem. And it is genuinely becoming an idol. That doesn't mean there aren't wonderful beliefs on DH parts of conservatives in the same way there are for liberalism. But neither one of them Hold some sort of strength or favour with God in the slightest. And I think until the church realizes that And recognizes that there are Men and women that stand behind. Pump it. That have a political agenda. And not the agenda of God. That there's going to be a real sickness. And a huge cancer. In the church. And it was never Ever meant to be. Entangled.

"Yeah. And if you can't serve them out. Well, then you finally break the siege and destroy them. But it's a multi year process usually released was back then. Yeah. So then you have the Pharisees and the Saturday sees these were the two major Jewish sects at the time within Judaea the scenes, basically would separate themselves out from society. Whereas the Pharisees insurgencies were competing for control of the people and it in one way, you can view them as competing political parties. But there were also religious movements. And yeah, so they would disagree over things. Like, the Pharisees were very opposed to any and all Helen ization, whereas the Saudis were in favor of it because if you can maintain a good government with a good relationship with the Roman government life will be easier for you and best way to have a good relationship with the Roman government is to become acceptable to the Romans which Hellenism was the model. They're going for that part of the empire. You have the Pharisees emphasizing the mosaic laws, whereas the seas were focusing almost exclusively on temple rights and the Pharisees were they weren't opposed to people engaging in the temple rights that was part of what unity needed to do to to follow the mosaic laws. Right. But they wanted the big focus on living a good life in the eyes of God. Whereas the sad UC's big focus was on sacrificing goats to satisfy God. Yeah. Circa Faisal's goats doesn't again. All this knowledge. All these things I have okay. Oh, you're human. Okay. Good. No, it just it. Almost sounds no joke like a gay a game at this point. You have to look at the different players involved in the game. Yeah. So the Pharisees, they also they accepted the Torah the prophets and the writings so the books of Moses the books of prophecy. And the writings is the section of the Hebrew bible. The includes the the history texts and psalms proverbs. Ecclesiastes. These you're saying all these things like, I know. Oh, yeah. I've kind of heard about the basically the Pharisees accepted everything that is generally or that is currently accepted as the old test. How K whereas the only accepted the first five books of the modern Old Testament. The modern Old Testament. Yeah. Now, the Pharisees were the more successful of the groups because they were focusing on trying to live a life acceptable to God, they were better and not just focused on the temple rights, right? Their existence didn't rely on the existence of the temple. So after the second temple was destroyed in sixty nine CE by the Roman government after the Jews revolted, the sad, you see ceased to exist. It's hard to have a temple based movement without attempt. Hey, it's shoot. Whereas the Pharisees. Ended up becoming modern rabbinic Judaism. And that there is a direct line from them to the modern Jewish religion. Cool. And then, you know, there's all those different forms of Judaism. Yeah. But those are all modern from what What does. does what have been, you know, historic? Judaism, the historic rabbinic Judaism which had developed from the Pharisee movement. Right. So then moving outside of the Jewish world. There is myth resum, which was a religion that was rising up around the same time. As Christianity it depending on which of the very few limited. Sources are available it either dates back hundreds of years e. E earlier than that time period for it was just brand new starting in the first century. A lot of those records were intentionally destroyed. So it's hard to tell or lost the history. Right. But they had a son God they worshiped on Sunday. They believe that their God died on the winter solstice and then was resurrected slash reborn on December twenty five. That's where Christmas the date for Christmas comes from..

"Of broken pottery. That's Tom Rankin. He's an architect and tour guide who has lived in Rome for over twenty years. We're at the bottom of Montas touch a hill made of terra cotta emperor, which are discarded olive all parts from the Roman era. It's taken me about twenty minutes to walk around it and looking up it's hard to believe it's just made of waste pottery. It's huge, and Tom, and I going all the way up to the top. Climb. Monte the statue you can hear the sound under our feet of the pottery over a century of broken. Era which were piled up here because they were one of the few things for which they had no other use. In fact, found a way of reusing just about all the building aerials. If they were. For a used for grain that could be reused practically infinitely. But in this case used to carry olive oil imported olive oil from Spain and Africa. The oil would go rancid after just a couple of uses and couldn't be recycled. So what do they do? They couldn't use it as building material because the biological components would cause the buildings to become unhealthy. And so they laid them in in strata with quick lime on top of them to kill the biological growth and year after year piled higher and higher till get to where we are now, which is partway up this hill. It's about sixty sixty five meters tall and occupies a fairly large piece of Rome. Hundred meters by two hundred meters or so within the ancient city walls. So this was an agreed way of getting rid of these flora or where is the official or unofficial official official earlier on they unofficially through them into the river. And that didn't work out for very long the river started getting clogged up, so the Roman government officially sanctioned a spot where things would be brought. So it doesn't matter that we're walking all this ancient material for geologists today. This is just waste when we work on an excavation. Even in the Roman forum, finding pieces of broken pottery like this is very normal. What's important about it isn't the value as material this no museum in Rome. That would be interested in even intact amphora of this period. There's so many of them. What is interesting is its value for information? The team of archaeologists which for years now has been excavating here on Monday to stature is gleaning information about Rome's economy about the geographic provenance of the olive oil. Lots of very important information the material itself, though. You might think this is a pretty impressive piece of pottery here. But. It's.

"Hebrews is a is a a Jewish teacher of the highest order. He was taught by Jewish teacher of the highest order and a part of that calling as God's covenant people was to separate yourself from the influences of the pagan of the gentile world. But as a symbolic gesture to show, you know, when Jesus loses his temper in the temple when he sees that they've turned the alter of God into a marketplace any quotes from the prophet Isaiah. And he says my house, she'll be a house of prayer for all nations. At the time would come that. God would open his coveted up to all of his people. And that this is a symbolic gesture moving us to that reality to see. One of the most preeminent Jewish thought leaders of his day is now the apostle to the non Jewish world is he is taking what he believes is not a replacement, but the fulfilment. Of the calling of the Jewish people. The call the the the the compiling of the Torah and the law and the prophets in the proverbs in the psalms. And that and that he is taking the fulfilment of all those things that he believes she's crisis. And he is now taking that fulfillment of the Jewish faith through Christ. He's now going to take it to the gentile world the rest of the world. I guess this is God's way of saying only Nixon could go to China in a way, and we also pointed out that you know, they didn't just spin the wheel of destiny and heaven one day, and they plug it noses and close their eyes and Jehovah pointed at the board, and it was pinned the Dale pin the tail on the Jew, and this was that you that got picked to be the apostle to the gentiles. Now, there's a reason here Paul as both of respected Jewish scholar and a Roman citizen. Keep in mind, the Jewish people are oppressed by the Roman government at this time. All right. So there they are an oppressed people. And they've only been given some limited religious freedom. Because they have shown such a commitment and zeal to the to the purity of their faith, even to the point of the Maccabi rebellion that helped eventually lead to the shrink in of the of the Romans, conquering the Jewish people that they've shown such commitment to the purity of their religion that the Romans just decided we're going to give you some form of religious freedom because we're tired of killing you and you killing us, and we'll, you know, we'll meet you halfway you still have to report to our prefect. That's what punches pilot was Eastill have to you know, we will appoint your king. We'll still give you a quote, unquote, Jewish. King Herod is actually the Amine. He's descended from east saw meeting. Not jacob. Okay. So we'll we'll give we still we will appoint your king. You will have to respect the law. The the authority of our prefect. You can't you can't practice capital punishment. That's why they needed to bring Jesus to Pontius pilot. There were limits on their freedom as as Jews because they were an oppressed people. But they were given some unlimited accommodation that other conquered cultures within the Roman empire were just told to simulate worship Cesar is God. Or you know, we just crucify all y'all. And so this is the environment. That Paul comes out of is that he is a rarity among the oppressed Jewish people. He is also a Roman citizen. Here's why that's important because it gives him a freedom to go to places like Colosio to go to places like Corinth to go to places like ethicists when when when we first encounter Paul the first time we encounter him in the New Testament, he is holding the cloaks in tunics of those who are stoning the first martyr of the church. Saint Stephen didn't. We just have like his commemoration. Stephen Christmas day. Good king Wenceslas came out on the feast of Steven Wright, that's a Chris old school Christmas, Carol. Okay.
