December, 32 AD

     "(December, 32 AD) ---"This season was a less happy one for some of (Jesus') associates.  It was at this time that Pilate "mingled the blood of the Galileans with their sacrifices".  It was one of several occasions when the Young Lion of Wrath behaved with complete insensitivity to Jewish religious feelings, possibly the time when there was a protest about his spending money from the sacred treasury for building works.  He ordered his soldiers, carrying clubs, to dress in Jewish garments  and mix with the protesting Jews.   The soldiers bludgeoned them indescriminately, killing many." 

      "The three zealot leaders, Simon Magus (Pope), Judas Iscariot (his Second), and Theudas (Barabbas), led the uprising of nationalists.  They were structured as a triarchy of Priest, Prophet, and King, and in their minds they formed a reproduction of the triumvirate that had formerly ruled Rome.   When their protest failed and their followers were routed, they themselves escaped, but had to go into hiding.   Theudas-Barabbas had blood on his hands; he had killed a Roman soldier, "committed murder in the uprising".

     "From this time, Pilate's orders were to find and round up the zealot triarchy; if he succeeded in this, he would gain credit for having put down a constant source of harassment of the Romans."
