Earliest reference describes Christ as ‘magician’

Finally, more proof that shows what I suspect is more likely the truth. Lots of competition back then and now for who can better amaze the uninitiated.
No way the son of a god, just filling ancient predictions, see Holy Blood, Holy Grail and GenIsis for starters.
Remember Simon Magus?
“The apocryphal Acts of Peter gives a legendary tale of Simon Magus’ death. Simon is performing magic in the Forum, and in order to prove himself to be a god, he levitates up into the air above the Forum.
The apostle Peter prays to God to stop his flying, and he stops mid-air and falls into a place called the Sacra Via (meaning, Holy Way), breaking his legs “in three parts”.”
“Simon Magus was born in Samaritan town of Gitta, he was later the founder of the Simonian sect of Gnostics, and was contemporary with the Apostles. His writings and almost all direct sources of information were destroyed by hostile early Christian in the first five century. Only distorted facts and legends are available.
By the time Simon Magus comes into the light of recorded history, he is already an accomplished teacher of extraordinary influence.
The Simon’ powers to heal and perform wonders were astounding. He was turning stones into bread, traveling through the air, standing unharmed in fire, assuming various shapes, causing heavy objects to move and opening locked doors without contact.” – Source
He was the chief rival of Jesus at the time and they continually tried to outdo each other with ‘miracles’. Imagine what Chris Angel, David Copperfield, David Blaine and the like could be back then……. But good tricks lead to all kinds of cultic behavior.
There are followers of Simon Magus to this day and I understand his gospels survive. Years ago, I read something about how he achieved levitation. I think it was in a Phd thesis about the life and times of Magus.
The claim was he went to a valley between very large mountains, dug a hole in the ground, laid face down at the bottom of the deep hole all night, breathing the air from the earth. This air was negatively charged.
When he arose that morning, his body had absorbed the negative electrical charge and since like charges repel, he weighed much less, sufficient to allow him to swim through the air with a pair of artificial wings.
It was an interesting claim so I never forgot it no matter how incredible it might sound.
They are finally showing ‘The DaVinci Secret’ here in Mexico though I have it on DVD. For those who have been studying such things for years, its nothing new and some errors, but I always get a kick out of the Sangre Real being related to the lineage of Saint Claire…which just happens to be one of my grandmothers family lines, but theirs is from Ireland.
Here is the article that was in my drafts folder that I am catching up on now;
“A team of scientists led by renowned French marine archaeologist Franck Goddio recently announced that they have found a bowl, dating to between the late 2nd century B.C. and the early 1st century A.D., that is engraved with what they believe could be the world’s first known reference to Christ. If the word “Christ” refers to the Biblical Jesus Christ, as is speculated, then the discovery may provide evidence that Christianity and paganism at times intertwined in the ancient world. The full engraving on the bowl reads, “DIA CHRSTOU O GOISTAIS,” which has been interpreted by the excavation team to mean either, “by Christ the magician” or, “the magician by Christ.” / (There is a lot more to this that most people don’t have a clue about…see my blog in couple of days from now. – JWD)” – Source
