The Family of God – Desposyni (des-po-zee-knee)

http://herebedragons.weebly.com/desposyni.html

“There is now written evidence that Jesus was married to Mary the Magdalene and that they had children together…. Gathering dust in the British Library is a document that takes us into the missing years of Jesus’s life…. According to the document that we uncovered, sometime during this period he became engaged, got married, had sexual relations, and produced children. Before anyone gets his/her theological back up, keep in mind that we are not attacking anyone’s theology. We are reporting on text.”

The text in question is called the Ecclesiastical History of Zacharias Rhetor, written on treated animal skin, which was brought to the United Kingdom in 1847 when the British Museum bought it from an Egyptian monastery.

Who were The Desposyni?

Sextus Julius Africanus’s reference to The Desposyni is preserved in Eusebius of Caesarea’s Ecclesiastical History:

For the relatives of our Lord according to the flesh, whether with the desire of boasting or simply wishing to state the fact, in either case truly, have handed down the following account… But as there had been kept in the archives up to that time the genealogies of the Hebrews as well as of those who traced their lineage back to proselytes, such as Achior the Ammonite and Ruth the Moabitess, and to those who were mingled with the Israelites and came out of Egypt with them, Herod, inasmuch as the lineage of the Israelites contributed nothing to his advantage, and since he was goaded with the consciousness of his own ignoble extraction, burned all the genealogical records, thinking that he might appear of noble origin if no one else were able, from the public registers, to trace back his lineage to the patriarchs or proselytes and to those mingled with them, who were called Georae. A few of the careful, however, having obtained private records of their own, either by remembering the names or by getting them in some other way from the registers, pride themselves on preserving the memory of their noble extraction. Among these are those already mentioned, called Desposyni, on account of their connection with the family of the Saviour. Coming from Nazara and Cochaba, villages of Judea, into other parts of the world, they drew the aforesaid genealogy from memory and from the book of daily records as faithfully as possible. Whether then the case stand thus or not no one could find a clearer explanation, according to my own opinion and that of every candid person. And let this suffice us, for, although we can urge no testimony in its support, we have nothing better or truer to offer. In any case the Gospel states the truth.” And at the end of the same epistle he adds these words: “Matthan, who was descended from Solomon, begat Jacob. And when Matthan was dead, Melchi, who was descended from Nathan begat Eli by the same woman. Eli and Jacob were thus uterine brothers. Eli having died childless, Jacob raised up seed to him, begetting Joseph, his own son by nature, but by law the son of Eli. Thus Joseph was the son of both.” Eusebius of Caesarea, Historia Ecclesiae, 1:7:11, 1:7:13-14

This was written in the early third century, and it corresponds EXACTLY with The Milesian Legend stories of “Milesius and Scota” (Or “Niul and Scota”) when it says…

And to those who were mingled with The Israelites and came out of Egypt with them“…

Excerpt…
By these exploits Milesius found great favour with Pharaoh, who gave him, being then a widower, his daughter Scota in marriage“…

Eusebius has also preserved an extract from a work by Hegesippus (c.110-c.180), who wrote five books (now lost except for some quotations by Eusebius) of Commentaries on the Acts of the Church. The extract refers to the period from the reign of Domitian (81-96) to that of Trajan (98-117), includes the statement that two Desposyni brought before Domitian later became leaders of the churches:[9]

There still survived of the kindred of the Lord the grandsons of Judas, who according to the flesh was called his brother. These were informed against, as belonging to the family of David, and Evocatus brought them before Domitian Caesar: for that emperor dreaded the advent of Christ, as Herod had done. So he asked them whether they were of the family of David; and they confessed they were. Next he asked them what property they had, or how much money they possessed. They both replied that they had only 9000 denaria between them, each of them owning half that sum; but even this they said they did not possess in cash, but as the estimated value of some land, consisting of thirty-nine plethra only, out of which they had to pay the dues, and that they supported themselves by their own labour. And then they began to hold out their hands, exhibiting, as proof of their manual labour, the roughness of their skin, and the corns raised on their hands by constant work. Being then asked concerning Christ and His kingdom, what was its nature, and when and where it was to appear, they returned answer that it was not of this world, nor of the earth, but belonging to the sphere of heaven and angels, and would make its appearance at the end of time, when He shall come in glory, and judge living and dead, and render to every one according to the course of his life. Thereupon Domitian passed no condemnation upon them, but treated them with contempt, as too mean for notice, and let them go free. At the same time he issued a command, and put a stop to the persecution against the Church. When they were released they became leaders of the churches, as was natural in the case of those who were at once martyrs and of the kindred of the Lord. And, after the establishment of peace to the Church, their lives were prolonged to the reign of Trajan. Eusebius of Caesarea, Historia Ecclesiae, 3:20

A meeting between Sylvester (Pope Sylvester I) and the Jewish Christian leaders took place in 318….The vital interview was not, as far as we know, recorded, but the issues were very well known, and it is probable the Joses, the oldest of the Christian Jews, spoke on behalf of The Desposyni and the rest. …

That most hallowed name, Desposyni, had been respected by all believers in the first century and a half of Christian history. The word literally meant, in Greek, “Belonging To The Lord.” It was reserved uniquely for Jesus’ blood relatives. Every part of the ancient Jewish Christian church had always been governed by a Desposynos, and each of them carried one of the names traditional in Jesus’ family—Zachary, Joseph, John, James, Joses, Simeon, Matthias, and so on. But no one was ever called Jesus.

Neither Sylvester nor any of the thirty-two popes before him, nor those succeeding him, ever emphasized that there were at least three well-known and authentic lines of legitimate blood descent from Jesus’ own family…”

The Desposyni demanded that Sylvester, who now had Roman patronage, revoke his confirmation of the authority of the Greek Christian bishops at Jerusalem, in Antioch, in Ephesus, and in Alexandria, and to name desposynos bishops to take their place. They asked that the practice of sending cash to Jerusalem as the mother church be resumed… These blood relatives of Christ demanded the reintroduction of the Law, which included the Sabbath and the Holy Day system of Feasts and New Moons of the Bible. Sylvester dismissed their claims and said that, from now on, the mother church was in Rome and he insisted they accept the Greek bishops to lead them. …This was the last known dialogue with the Sabbath-keeping church in the east led by the disciples who were descended from blood relatives of Jesus the Messiah. – Irish Priest Malachi Martin

The term Desposyni [des-po-zee-knee] is applied to purported descendants of Jesus and his surrounding family, all of whom were of the House of David. Clearly this is an explosive claim in certain circles because it directly threatens the Roman Church’s claim of rule through an Apostolic Succession rather than through inheritance via the House of David. Furthermore it indicates that there were heirs to Jesus’ claim to be the King of the Jews, a claim that has been supported by a number of more-adventuresome scholars recently. And the concept that Jesus had a wife/consort and children gives a very different picture, one of a human and one who could well be spiritually a son of God but certainly not physically.

Martin, Malachi. The Decline and Fall of the Roman Church. New York: Bantam, 1983. 30-31.
“A meeting between Silvester and the Jewish Christian (sic) leaders took place in 318….The vital interview was not, as far as we know, recorded, but the issues were very well known, and it is probable the Joses, the oldest of the Christian Jews (sic), spoke on behalf of the desposyni and the rest.

That most hallowed name, desposyni, had been respected by all believers in the first century and a half of Christian history. The word literally meant, in Greek, “belonging to the Lord.” It was reserved uniquely for Jesus’ blood relatives. Every part of the ancient Jewish Christian church had always been governed by a desposynos, and each of them carried one of the names traditional in Jesus’ family—Zachary, Joseph, John, James, Joses, Simeon, Matthias, and so on. But no one was ever called Jesus. Neither Silvester nor any of the thirty-two popes before him, nor those succeeding him, ever emphasized that there were at least three well-known and authentic lines of legitimate blood descent from Jesus’ own family. One from Joachim and Anna, Jesus’ maternal grandparents. One from Elizabeth, first cousin of Jesus’ mother, Mary, and Elizabeth’s husband, Zachary. And one from Cleophas and his wife, who also was a first cousin of Mary.

There were, of course, numerous blood descendants of Joseph, Mary’s husband, but only those persons in bloodline with Jesus through his mother qualified as desposyni….”

This passage, of course, reflects the Catholic view that Miryam and Yosef had no children. So while Martin exposes the Catholic church, he still promotes its mythology and the myth of some continuity between Paulistic religon and Messianic Yahwism. The desposyni were soon to be dispossessed by Silvester who had his authority from Emperor so much responsible for Christianity as it is today, Constantine.

“Ever since the Emperor Hadrian had conquered Jerusalem in the year 135, all Jews, and that included Jewish Christians, had been forbidden to enter Jerusalem under pain of instant death….”

Gentile Christians then had Jerusalem, that is Aelia Capitolina, as their own.

“They therefore asked Silvester to revoke his confirmation of Greek Christian bishops in Jerusalem, in Antioch, in Ephesus, in Alexandria, and to name instead desposynos bishops….”

Rome fully ruled these areas and Silvester was given authority in religious enforcement.

“Silvester curtly and decisively dismissed the claims of the Jewish Christians. He told them that the mother church was now in Rome, with the bones of the Apostle Peter, and he insisted that they accept Greek bishops to lead them.

It was the last known discussion between the Jewish Christians of the old mother church and the non-Jewish Christians of the new mother church. By his adaptation, Silvester, backed by Constantine, had decided that the message of Jesus was to be couched in Western terms by Western minds on an imperial model.

The Jewish Christians had no place in such a church structure. They managed to survive until the first decades of the fifth century. Then, one by one, they disappear…. But most of them die—by the sword (Roman garrisons hunted them as outlaws), by starvation (they were deprived of their small farms and could not or would not adapt themselves to life in the big cities), by the attrition of zero birthrate….The desposyni have ceased to exist. Everywhere, the Roman pope commands respect and exercises authority.”

Constantine and his lackey, Silvester, were justly rewarded for their evil.

“…within twenty years of Silvester’s death, the Roman legions were defending Constantinople, which Constantine had only finished building. The mortar was still wet….Constantine’s dynasty lasted sixty years, during most of which time he was busy repelling Goths, Franks, and Alemanni from the borders of the empire. (All the effort he put into building Constantinople didn’t help much.) After his death in 337, his three sons succeeded him. The last of these, Constantius, died in 361. By the time of Emperor Gratian’s death (383), the Balkans had been ceded to the Goths. By 405, the Romans had evacuated Britain. Soon Spain fell to the Vandals. In August of 410, Rome itself was plundered by the Goths under Alaric.”

The sweetest part of this justice is that many of these “barbarians” were Arian Christians! Arians denied the divinity of “Christ.”

Did you know that the early Christian Church for well over a hundred years was led by “The Desposyni” (Which means, “Belonging To The Lord”) And The Descendants Of King David?

The Desposyni (and The Descendants Of King David) went on to The British Isles, and throughout the world (Even into The United States)…

“As the host of heaven cannot be numbered, neither the sand of the sea measured: so will I multiply the seed of David my servant, and the Levites that minister unto me” – Jeremiah 33:22

AD 397 – Final 12 verses of Mark 16 added (beyond Mark 16:8) (106) Council of Carthage (more works approved).

5th Century: Prince Nascien of the Septimanian Midi was a direct descendant and senior successor of the Fisher Kings of Gaul, and (214) a Desposynic ancestor of the Merovingian Kings of the Franks, from whose line sprang Vivian d’Avallon del Acqs (the Lady of the Lake) and her son Lancelot, the father of Galahad.” Josephes’ son, Josue, had placed a supernatural shield with Nascien, whose descendant would do many marvelous deeds. (206)

“In the 3 rd Century, King Aminadab (grandson of Mary Magdalene’s son Josephes) had married Eurgen, the great-great-granddaughter of Bran the Blessed and Anna. This historically significant marriage had cemented the fraternal lines of Jesus and James (his brother), so that Meroveus, Nascien and the eventual Merovingian Kings were dually Desposynic. By the time of their 6th-century reign in France, the Magdalene legacy was individually realized by the way of a separate matrilineal dynasty in Burgundy . This was the House del Acqs of the Viviane Queen of Avalon.” (215)

[“Kings of the original Grail dynasties in Britain and France always operated on this basis. They were common fathers to the people, never rulers of the lands. Territorial kingship was a feudal and Imperial concept that completely undermined the code, and was enforced in Europe after the fraudulent AD 751 Donation of Constantine .” (219)]

AD 574 – King Aedan of Dalriada installed by St Columba. His youngest son and heir was Arthur (born in 559). (225)

AD 575 – Arthur became Sovereign Guletic. By the union of Aedan of Dalriada and Ygerna del Acqs (daughter of Queen Viviane I, Lady of the Lake and descendant of Jesus and Mary Magdalene), “the line of Jesus and Mary Magdalene was linked to the line of James/Joseph of Arimethea. Arthur was the first product by such a Desposynic marital union in 350 years, which is why he became so important to the Grail tradition.” (226) Morgaine was the daughter of Ygerna as well, but by her former husband – making Morgaine (Morganna or Morgan le Fay) Arthur’s half sister. (229) [Note that the implication of Arthur and Morgaine having a child – i.e. a brother and his half-sister – is fully in keeping with the traditions of the House of David, including Jesus and Mary Magdalene, and also in keeping with the Anunnaki practice – i.e. the “gods”. All of the subsequent negativity of such a union was purely at the instigation of the Catholic Church.]

AD 603 – Arthur, Prince and Sovereign Guletic of the Britons, fell (at the age of forty-four) alongside Maeluma mac Baedan. Also killed at Dawston was Arthur’s son Modred, archpriest of the Sacred Kindred of St. Columba, described in the annals as Modred son of the King of Scots.” “The Sacred Kindred of St Columba held Arthur responsible. He had failed in his duties as Guletic and High King.” (228)

AD 844 – Aedan’s famed descendant, King Kenneth MacAlpin united the Picts and Scots as one nation. MacAlpin was a descendant of the Queens of Avallon . The Avallonian dynasty – a direct heritable estate of Mary Magdalene – was perpetuated in the female line, with the queen’s daughters holding the senior positions, rather than their sons. (229)

15th Century – King Rene d’Anjou: “Who drinks well, God shall see. Who drains at a single draught, Shall see God and the Magdalene.”

“The inference of Rene’s inscription is that disconnected aspects of learning are sufficient to present an image of Jesus as determined by conventional doctrine. But when the scriptural records are embraced as a whole, Mary Magdalene moves equally into the picture.” (305)
