What's Really Hidden in Yeshu's Parables? Expanding Food and Walking on Water, Miracles, not for Yeshu only!
What is the secret of the Kingdom of Heaven? Why must it be a secret? What's the big deal? If the message is spiritual, then these are valid questions. If, however, the Kingdom of Heaven is indeed the code name for a planned insurrection against Roman rule, then all the secrets, hints and parables suddenly make perfect sense. Over and over again, when read in this light, the parables about the Kingdom make sense and subtle teachings about gathering an army for rebellion. Also, reference is made to the enemies who will not support the revolution, they are to burn.
Whether or not Yeshu actually feed the masses or walked on water is not an issue. To this day, there are Jewish miracle workers who have performed similar types of miracles. Baba Sali performed his own version of “feeding the masses” with his specially blessed bottle of Arak. The Abuhatzera family found, Rabbi Shmuel (?), was known as the “master of the carpet,” for taking a prayer rug, placing it on the water, and traveling upon it out to a ship. Miracles of this nature are indeed possible, but those performing them are still, nevertheless, human beings, and not Divine, or messianic.
