So, there I am listening to Lars Larson today and I hear him mention this scripture, Luke 22 : 36, in which Jesus says, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.” This was interesting to me because it fits my historical profile of Jesus but of more concern was the word he used for “cloak”.
Cicero said, “Cedante arma, togae”. Which means that War garb must yield to the garment of Logic and Reason or the Toga. The Toga is the Greek version of the Hindu Sari and the Buddhist Kasaya. In ancient Greece, Leisure was associated with education because it had a positive connotation. They wore lose fitting garb that was comfortable and ill suited for war.
Western Civilization came from the Augur cult which inspired the body of law of ancient Greece and Rome. They rocked the toga and read bird omens. They are also accepted by Jews as Cohanim Rabbi.
So, I wanted to know which word Jesus used when he said, “sell your cloak” and it turns out that the word is Himation. I hoped it would be “toga”, but look at the definition of “Himation” :
himations (plural noun)
an outer garment worn by the ancient Greeks over the left shoulder and under the right.
What Jesus was actually saying is the opposite of what Cicero said. He was communicating that if the Meritocracy of Logic and Reason should fail then you should sell your garment of peace and buy a sword. Jesus wasn’t the nutless pussy that he was depicted as. He was a Rational, Philosophical, Pragmatist. He was the reincarnation of the math cults of Pythagoras. Jesus followers practiced martial arts which is why they weren’t constantly assaulted by highway men when moving about on the Roman Roads. The word “Rumor” comes from the Roman Roads and Christianity spread rapidly because of the existence of the Roman Roads. If Christians were constantly being robbed and murdered their message wouldn’t have spread. The Knights Templar protected Christians that were journeying to the Holy Land… on the Roman Roads.
Our entire civilization and even our thought processes have been influenced by the Augurs. Our neural myelination comes from our ancestors because of epigenetics and we presuppose their conclusions. Mercy is for the Righteous not the Sinister (Left Handed).
