Thanks for your responses Larry and Johnnybones,

The google search hits all seem to be UB text or derivatives. And I can't find anything on squarecircles.com by Matthew Block on Paper 126. (Which is why I posted the question.)

Any more ideas anyone?

Thanks,
kiwi

Hi all,
Quote:
126:2.3 ... It remained always true that Jesus “sat at no man’s feet.” ...

Does anyone know what this UB passage is quoting? Presumably it is quoting something as it has quotation marks.
Thanks,
kiwi

Yes I agree - we need to get the talented people like Richard Jernigan on board and make something cool. The lost years of Jesus' life is a great idea. There is also some fantastic material in the earlier parts, like the Lucifer Rebellion, the Caligastia 100, Van and Amadon, Adam & Eve's default...

Hi Robert, I started watching the first video, and struggled with your premise that Jesus used the popularity of the mysteries as a vehicle for his teaching. 121:5.12-13 But do not make the mistake of confusing the teachings of Jesus with the mysteries. The popularity of the mysteries reveals man’s ...

Hi all, Wondering if anyone else has noticed the following: 51:5.2 Usually the violet peoples do not begin to amalgamate with the planetary natives until their own group numbers over one million ... 77:2.2 ... The Life Carriers had planned a new type of mortal embracing the union of the conjoint off...

Hi all, It strikes me as strange that the following paragraph: (553.4) 48:6.23 You should consider the statement about “heaven” and the “heaven of heavens.” The heaven conceived by most of your prophets was the first of the mansion worlds of the local system. When the apostle spoke of being “caught ...

Hi Bart,

I guess it's entirely possible, and it would make sense that they would, but I really don't know. I'll have to look into it more.

123:2.13 It was the custom of the Galilean Jews for the mother to bear the responsibility for a child’s training until the fifth birthday, and then, if the child were a boy, to hold the father responsible for the lad’s education from that time on. This year, therefore, Jesus entered upon the fifth ...

Interesting topic - thanks J.Barry. I'm fairly fundamentalist, although I allow that there could potentially be errors due to human contact. For me, if there are (problematic) errors, then it isn't reliable, end of story. And I do agree that people can differ in their interpretation. But I don't thi...

Hi Bart, yep, cool, I see what you're saying now. Hi boom, it's fair enough that you believe the authors deliberately put (or omit) things in order to make us look deeper, but applying that idea to this issue isn't really helping the discussion much. It doesn't support your view (that the Spirit of ...

Hi Bart, I'm pretty sure the Week of Unleavened Bread always followed Passover, not led up to it. Hi boom, I'm surprised at the way you talk about the bible, and not sure what to make of it. I don't see the authors of the UB giving the bible the high standing (on facts) that you do. But if you want ...

Thanks for your post, Bart. Yeah I agree that it's only really a possibility. But to me that's better than what other people are suggesting, which are mental gymnastics to explain how the UB isn't actually saying what it seems to be saying. Kiwi TUB goes through the Bible chapter by chapter. Why wou...

… How did you get Essene Passover at 5 April? Hi Kiwi. You said Essene Passover was on a Wednesday, so I simply took the first Wednesday before April 8, 30 AD (the date of passover in TUB). But you’re right, March 29 would also be a Wednesday and it would be exactly 50 days before the date of Jesus...
