BUT the scholars, you tell me. No true scholar would ever give the Letter of Lentulus a second glance, you say. The scholars have proven it to be a medieval forgery and we should listen to the scholars more often. Because the scholars understand His-Story better than we do. Because they paid a Jesuit institution money to receive their degree and then make educated guesses which might inform our reality. That’s why we should listen to them. Because they know what they’re talking about, and so, let’s not question them. Did I get that right?
Look, I’m not saying the Letter of Lentulus is legitimate. I really don’t know either way. I do find it fascinating though. The fact that it apparently derives from the Middle Ages would have me automatically discrediting it only a couple of years ago, which is probably the intent. I’ve come to learn a thing or two since then, and here’s what I can tell you. The more I come to knowledge about the reality of the realm, which our Controllers are desperately attempting to hide from us, via indoctrination at every level (including but certainly not inclusive to the academic), the more I realize how much I don’t know.
It is only after coming to terms with the mud flood event that I decided to give extra-Biblical literature another chance. I had formerly written most of it off as a counterfeit enterprise. Forgeries of a darker age. Probably just as my Controllers had intended. But then something unexpected happened. There was wisdom to be discovered in them. Not simply confirmation of what we already deem acceptable in Seminary. No, missing puzzle pieces. We’re talking peripheral vision. There’s a reason why our Controllers have gone out of their way to discredit a great number of works. They don’t want to be exposed.
I’ll admit, describing Yahusha HaMashiach as this so-called Lentulus does seems a little suspicious. Why would any Roman official go out of their way to describe him as one might in a painting? Also, you will tell me the letter accredits Publius Lentulus as the Governor of Judea, and that there was no such Lentulus in the books. Do you seriously think the forgers of the Middle Ages didn’t know that? Were they that stupid? I mean, if they wanted to create a forgery with a certain fragrance of authority, why not just make up a letter by Pontius Pilate? Something like that would sell. And anyways, the earliest letter of Publius Lentulus never mentions him being a Governor. He simply identifies himself as Publius Lentulus. Who is Publius Lentulus? We aren’t told. Seems odd for a forgery.
For all I know, Publius Lentulus was Intel. Even though Roman spy networks were perhaps not as sophisticated as the NSA, why underestimate Rome’s network of spooks? They were keeping tabs on anybody of importance, and that includes the Herod’s. If a “prophet” arrived in any providential city of Rome, especially in Yerushalayim, you can be sure the boys down at the local Lodge would want to know if he was “one of theirs”. And if not, keep tabs on him. Better yet, warn top brass. And before anyone points out the sentimentalities presented by Lentulus, as if that cancels everything, I wouldn’t be in the least bit surprised if Rome was always on the lookout for the next “Dei.”
I understand, Oh Caesar! you wish to learn some things about the virtuous man named Iesus Christus, who the town considers like a prophet and like Dei, and who, his disciples say, is the Son of Dei, maker of heaven and earth.
