A New Light Dawns!


QUESTION: Did ZEBEDEE, who in three of the gospels appears to be only the owner and operator of a FISHING BOAT with "sons" and hired fishermen, have much more to do with the ORIGINS of CHRISTIANITY and the Charismatic Movement of that day than what the Bible is saying about him?  And if SO, what's being hidden and covered-up? 



ANSWER: YES, he did INDEED have a great deal to do with the ORIGINS of CHRISTIANITY, and was indeed the first Christian "Pope" after Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection.

Part of what is being "covered up" in the gospels and Acts is that Simon Magus, was Jesus' religious and political partner for 3 1/2 years, and they were crucified together as both being responsible for what 3 Zealots did who were all leaders of the Essenes.

 Simon Magus 

was one of those 3 Zealots, and one of his other names was

      Simon Zelotes  Luke 6:15 "Matthew and Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon called Zelotes, --"  Acts 1:13 "And when they were come in, they went up into an UPPER ROOM, where abode both Peter, and James and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James."

(also known as)

Simon the Canaanite

Mark 3:18 "And Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Canaanite, --"  Matthew 10:4 "Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him."

Soon after Jesus' crucifixion and resur-rection a decision was made to make Simon Peter the executive leader of the "Twelve Apostles" and not "Lazarus" (Simon Magus) also known as ZEBEDEE.   A cover-up of the true identity of Simon Magus was performed in the other gospels and by Luke in the Book of Acts.

  And YES, we can rightly assume that Jesus himself knew about this cover-up and agreed it should be done.


of SIMON MAGUS, also

known as "LAZARUS"

in the Gospel of John!

And "ZEBEDEE" the

Fisherman in the other

Three Gospels!


QUESTION: Did Simon Peter ever cooperate with Simon Magus ("Lazarus") during Jesus' active ministry and after his crucifixion and resurrection?

ANSWER: Yes, he did, but not under the name of "Lazarus" but under another of many names for this same person.  Under the name of "Zebedee".   In all the other gospels besides "John" Simon Magus is called "Zebedee"




   It may shock a lot of Christians to discover:

   That Simon Magus as "Zebedee" was FISHING FOR MEN in the Dead Sea, with a fishing boat he quite likely had brought down to the Dead Sea from the Sea of Galilee, and with 2 fishermen named Simon Peter and his brother Andrew, who had fished for real fish (not men) in the Sea of Galilee  ---


    That Jesus Christ "borrowed" this idea of "Fishing for Men" in the Dead Sea (which has no real fish --- too salty for fish to live in it) -- and also that he also "borrowed" Peter and Andrew, and two others that Simon Magus had "hired" for this "magical work" of "fishing for men".

WHY HE WAS ABLE TO DO THIS WAS    That Jesus was able to become the Real "Messiah" of the ESSENES for a period of 3 1/2 years from 29 to March of 33 AD.

Simon Magus as "Zebedee" became Jesus' religious and political "partner" for this period of time -- This "Fishing Boat" was now their joint enterprise!

NEXT QUESTIONS: How was the PROMINENT ROLE played by SIMON MAGUS in the Gospel Years covered up during the crucifixion and afterwards?

Where is the real story told SYMBOLICALLY by Jesus himself?

How and why did Peter get Simon Magus, his early teacher, excommunicated?

His "magical" reappearance as ANANIAS in Paul's conversion story.
