Derivation of the Spar Yah.ya (Book of John) mythology from Minuan-Kurenai:kan mythology


Minuan-Kurenai:kan mythology; Seper B-Re>sit; Maha-bharata

Spar Yah.ya; various Khenoboskion books; Nabiy>iym

Eu-phemos married Hera-klees's sistre La[w]o-nane 'Folk Midget' (DCM, s.v. "Euphemus", p. 156a). {Heroine Revati's stature was "shortened" (Vis.n.u Puran.a 4:1 -- VPHHW, p. 357) by her husband, after the passage of maha-yuga-s , also known as kala-cakra-s 'time-wheels'. A grinding-wheel is cheese-shaped : cf. derivation of the word for 'cheese', (Strong's 8194) /s^apah/, from (Strong's 8192) /s^apah/ "to abrade".}

{The term /nanos/ (G-EL) also hath the meaning 'cheesecake', a term which may relate to the "cheese" shape-designation of the fruit of the mallow (MH, s.v. "Mallows") whose seeds are known in the Channel Isles as (WP, s.v. "Lavatera arborea") "petit pains", or "little breads".}

The shortening of KaKuDMin's daughter Revati's (otherwise known as SaMudra -- /samudra/, a collective designation in the Puran.a-s for beverages, such as syrup, ghee, etc.) stature was (as explicated by Brahma) necessitated due her listening to divine music.

KaDMos's daughter SeMele ('dining-table' or the 'meal' upon it -- G-EL) was lightninged by Zeus : in order to liberate Zeus, Kadmos himself had (Nonnos : Dionusiaka 1.140 sq -- DCM, s.v. "Cadmus", p. 83a) "bewitched ... by playing the lyre".

Battos (founder of the city Kurene) was grandson of Leuko-phanes 'White Apparition', whom Eu-phemos had fathered on the Lemnian {i.e., Lamanite} woman Malakhe 'Mallow' (DCM, s.v. "Euphemus", p. 156a).

{The term /MALaKHe/ (G-EL) is applied to 3 distinct- species of mallow : this triplicity being implicit in the name Tri-MALCHio, whose form (omitting the 2nd /-a-/) may be Thraikian.}

Eu-phemos is a son of Poseidon, (DCM, s.v. "Euphemus", p. 155b) "who had given him the gift of walking on water." {Walking on water by a hero is likewise known on the Geelvink Bay.}

Walker-on water Petros -- Strong's 6622 /patar/ 'interpreter (scil, of a dream)' -- amputated an ear of MALKHos.

Eu-phemos while aboard ship "launched the dove" (loc. cit.).

'Dove' (/YOWNah/) is the name of a hero who while aboard ship became imprisoned temporarily in the belly of a whale,

Karn.a ('Ear', so named because he ripped open his own ears {cf. Malkhos}) is son of the Sun-god.

but when escaped thence launched on a preaching-campaign whereto many (in Niynweh) lent their ears.

From the body of YUVANa-as`va {cf. /YOWNah/} was extracted (MBh, "Dron.a Parvan" 6:23 -- PE, s.v. "As`vinikumaras", p. 71) MANDHAtr.,

Cognate with /MANDHAtr./ is the name /MANDA< d-h.ayye/ of the AntiChrist.

who was impaled {cf. crucifixion} while the world remained supernaturally covered with darkness.

Cf. the supernatural darkness covering the world during the crucifixion of Khristos.

Qayin, "whom generations of people call the sun" (GB, p. 147) {so that his son = Surya the sun-god's son (according to the Maha-bharata), the hero Karn.a}, had a 'mark' (taw) set on his forehead. The forehead is the origin of nad.i Pingala, which is regarded as solar.

The Sun-god enquired from Yah.ya concerning "three [head-] bands". {Perhaps these three refer to the rivers Ganga, Yamuna, and Sarasvati, supposedly confluent at Prayaga, or when regarded as nad.i-s (as indicated in Kun.d.alini yoga) at Ajn~a.}

Aristoteles (DCM, s.v. "Battus", p. 75a) of Lemnos (Ibid., p. 73b) is styled "Battos". The meaning of /Battos/ is Libuan is 'king' (Ibid., pp. 73b & 75a, citing Herodotos 4.150 sq).

Yah.ya asserted to the Sun-god : "may the Perfect (pl.) watch o'er thy crown. {Various crowns were worn by the king of TL-MRJ, including the red crown as 'bee-king'.} ...

Themison "swore that he would" transport Phronime aboard his ship to "the open sea."

On the vessel that sails 'twixt the waters, the seal of the King has been set.

To king Eteo-arkhos (the Eteo-kretan king of Axos, cf. /axo-/ 'fracture of bone') his own daughter Phronime had been accused "falsely ... that she led a debauched life" (DCM, s.v. "Phronime"). {Perhaps >adam's "daughter" (fractured from his rib-bone?) H.awwah is thus accused of the behaviour propre to Lilit.}

She who in thy [the Sun-god's] house plays the wanton, goes hence" (John Book 19 & 20 -- "UMBJP"). {Sun-god Helios is father of (DCM, s.v. "Ocyrrhoe 1") Phasis < */Bhati-/ (similar to /batto-/ 'king'?); but that river's allegedly earlier name /Arkt-ouros/ 'Bear's Tail' is the same as Cymry /Arth-ur/.}

(B-Re>sit 34) H.amor was required to marry Dinah because he had impraegnated her, and had his father arrange with her father the prospective wedding; but before this could fulfilled, he was treacherously murdered by her brethren. At this point in events, she must have "aborted" her son -- though this "aborting" may be merely a figurative designation of her inability to provide for him an inheritance from her ancestors.

The ship of Yah.ya is constituted of mas^kil, a word meaning (Strong's 7921) 'she who causeth herself to abort' : which is the action by Pistis ('Faith', i.e., heroine Dinah), whence (according to On the Origin of the World -- GB, p. 415), in "childbirth, emerges the demiurge Yaldabaoth, who is expelled, the text emphasizes, like an aborted fetus (as in ... the Secret Book of John)."

Also cf. S^pupam, whose name (related to /s^apah/) supposedly signifieth "serpent-like" (Strong's 8197) = Strong's 8195 /S^pow/ 'Baldness'-- apparently a reference to the becoming-bald by Heraklees whilest within the belly of a whale -- + Strong's 6371 /pimah/ 'collop (meat tenderized by being beaten)'. But he could (better than with Tupho/Tuphoeus) be aequated with A-sopos ('not keeping silence', from Dorian /sopao/) : (Bibliotheka 3.156 -- "PA") "Zeus sent him back to his own waters with thunderbolts (whence to this day coal is mined from this river)."

This Yalda-ba[h]ut (Secret Book of John -- GB, p. 146) "changed into the figure of a snake with the face of a lion. Its eyes were flashing bolts of lightning." [Cf. (according to GB, p. 146, fn. 37) Tuphon : as concerning Tuphoeus, (Hesiodos : Theogonia 820 sq -- "GT") "up from his shoulders there grew a hundred snake heads ... : from all his heads fire flared from his eyes' glancing"; (Nonnos : Dionusiaka 1.145 sq -- "GT") "the snakes that grew from him waved over his leopard's heads, licked the grim lions' manes".]

A-sopos "had ... twelve ... daughters" (PA).

12 progeny (who "probably correspond to the signs of the zodiac", GB, p. 147, fn. 40) are ascribed to Yalda-ba[h]ut.

A-sopos married Metope (/meta-ope/) = /metopon/ (/meta-ops/) 'the space between the eyen; galbanum', the latter of which ("GFG") "is used to keep snakes and insects at bay." Kemetic god JTM sent forth from his forehead his single eye, which became a water-serpent, and returned in this guise.

Yalda-ba[h]ut "mated with the mindlessness in him and produced authorities for himself" (GB, p. 147). This 'mindlessness' is (GB, p. 147, fn. 38) "Coptic aponoia, from Greek". {Cf. the trance of no-thinking achieved by the Buddha, whose space-betwixt-eyebrows glowed.}

A-sopos is ("PA") "heavy-kneed" (Kallimakhos : Hymn 4 to Delos 75 sq), or "stiffknee" (Nonnos : Dionusiaka 13.201 sq), perhaps indicating him as deity of arthritis, and of the supposed causation (more accurately, the treatment) of this by means of electric stimulation (thunderbolts of Zeus) : a use for [arkhaiologically-discovered] Parthian electric cells.

Among the angels in the retinues of the progeny of Yalda-ba[h]ut are several who each praeside over a "joint" (GB, pp. 152-4) of the human body. {Cf. the also Dayak bodily-joint "souls".}

Because derived from descendants of Yalda-ba[h]ut are "365 angels" (GB, p. 147), therefore the Secret Book of John ought to be categorized as [proto-]Basilidean.

The sons of sun-god Helios had as their mother the nymph Rhodos ('Rose'). Of these Heliades, several emigrated abroad; and Helios's other son (by an Okeanid) Phae:thon charioteered astray ("left his ordained path", DCM, s.v. "Phaethon") much as Qayin wandered in the land of Nowd 'Wandering', B-Re>s^it 4:16). Orpheus was dismembred by Kikonian women (DCM, s.v. "Cicones", p. 102b), who are descendants of Kikon the son of Rhod-ope.

Cf. "rose" as mystery of the human body -- allegedly because both "decay" (Book of John 42 Could this imply plucking of rose-petals (cf. Romance of the Rose) as repraesentative of dismemberment of human body?

Tubal-Qayin (B-Re>s^it 4:22) the instructor in iron-smithery = maker of the sandal for Rhod-opis, delivered by eagle (DCM, s.v. "Rhodopis") to king Psammetikhos.

An eagle delivered an epistle to the king who had forgotten his mission. Is this how Hibil-Ziwa obtained the "iron shoe" (mentioned in Book of John 40

According to the Puran.a-s, that Manu {cf. Maori /manu/ 'bird'}, who is named for his wife, was protected by a fish which had been reared in an aquarium : cf. the aquarium-reared divine fish who spake to the heroine rearing it (N~an~igo secret-society of the Abakpa).

Fishes and water-fowl assembled to be instructed by instructrix Miryay (Book of John 35

On 21 occasions, all the male ks.atriya-s were massacred by Paras`u-Rama.

21 sons of Yus^amin were slain, mostly by Yawar-Ziwa (Book of John 3 :

24 military generals are named (in 1st Dbrey ha-Yamiym 24:3-19), as having been appointed.

in retaliation, Yus^amin slew 24,000 <utre (Book of John 3).

Much as Odusseus voyaged aboard a Phaiakian ship to the cave of the nymphs in Ithake, so likewise Rhada-manthus from Krete had voyaged (Odusseia 7.323 sq -- DCM, s.v. "Rhadamanthys") aboard a Phaiakian ship to seek Tituos in Abantia/Eu-boia, where [perhaps oracular, similar to the oracle-cave dedicated to Trophonios at Lebadeia] "there was a cave where a cult was dedicated to" (DCM, s.v. "Tityus") Tituos. Tituos was hidden underground with his mother Elara the daughter of Orkhomenos, who is son of Minuas the son of Khruses the son of a daughter of (DCM, s.v. "Minyas", p. 293a) Halmos -- cf. /halmeion/ 'public meal (in Krete)'.

The halmeion is the source of the Christian eucharist. Solar eucharist :

"The Sun sat in an isolating halo,
And the moon was in eclipse
The four winds of the house grasp one another’s arms and do not blow
The sun takes his sacred bread to his mouth" (
Book of John 20

To the city Orkhomenos fled (DCM, s.v. "Agamedes", p. 24a) Trophonios with Kerkuon, after they had burglarized the tholos which they had constructed [supposedly in far-off Elis of Apia, more likely in Huria of A[w]onia/Boiotia].

Bread is sought by Yah.ya instead of the "extravagant dome" proffered by his wife >anhar (Book of John 31 ).

An epithet of /daphne/ is /solo-eides/, comparable with /tholo-eides/ 'dome-shaped'.

Goddess Epinoia "Afterthought assumes the form of a tree, just as Daphne changes into a laurel tree" (GB, p. 158, fn. 75) : this is supposedly "the tree of the knowledge of good and evil".

Stiros or Sturos {evidently the eponym of the province /Styria/ in Austria} "claimed the hand of" heroine Medeia of Kolkhis. But, inasmuch as Skuthian "king Anausis also wanted to marry the girl", neither of them obtained her.

The name /Anausis/ < */ANAUTis/ is etymologically cognate with the name of />NOWS^/ (mentioned in B-Re>sit 4:26 as son of S^eyt); and with Aramaic />ANOWS^/. Sturos may possibly be the shape-shifter (appearance-changer) Mas^iyah. (Yes^uwa<) who

Afterwards, when Medeia eloped out of Kolkhis with Iason instead of either of the other twain suitors, Stiros/Sturos pursued {along with her brother Apsurtos?}. (Valerius Flaccus : Argonautica 3.497, 5.459, 6.265 sq, 8.299 sq & 328 sq -- DCM, s.v. "Stirus")

is mentioned (in Spar Yah.ya 76) along with >anows^, who may well be Iason.

Iason's father is Aison; and

If so, S^eyt (>aramaic /S^eyt ->eyl) = Aison;

Aison's father is Kretheus.

and >adam = Kretheus.

Kretheus's son Amuthaon was his immediate successor to the throne in Iolkos.

>adam'son Hebel (>aramaic /Heybeyl/; <arabic /Hubal/ = 'vapor-bath, sauna', DMWA, p. 1192b) was his heir-apparent.

Kretheus's son Pheres founded and imparted his own name to a city in Thessalia (DCM, s.v. "Pheres 1") [; another city /Pheres/ being that of Dio-klees in (DCM, s.v. "Nicomachus") Messenia].

>adam'son Qayin founded, and imparted his own son's name /H.nowk/ to, a 'city' /<IYR/ (B-Re>sit 4:17), whence /<IYRad/ (H.nowk's son's name).

A later personage, also named /Pheres/ was, along with his brother Mermeros ['baneful, mischief, captious'; perhaps a pun on /marmara/ 'marble; the Propontis'], a son of Iason-and-Medeia. [The name /Mermeros/ is also reminiscent of /Mormoi/ (DCM, s.v. "Mormolyke"), a goddess redundantly eponymous to the Mormon faith (which is mainly Malagasy & Swahili).]

A later personage, also named /H.nowk/, instructed <iyrad's son Mh.uya>el ("the place Mahujah" in Moses 7:2). (That folk "murmured", in the translation of S^emowt 16:2, concerning Mows^eh, may be a reason for inclusion of /Mermeros/.)
