Up to now, I haven't openly shown some of the things I've been researching. This one is burning in me, I can't contain it. I've tried seeing if online I can find anything about it, but can't.
Hope for some 'serious' answers vs sarcasm.
Acts 1:23-26 - The apostles are looking for a replacement for Judas Iscariot. Up for it is JOSEPH (also known as BAR'SABBAS, JUSTUS) and the other is Mattias. After casting lots it falls on Mattias. (We assume the matter is over then)
Acts 4:36 - JOSEPH also known as BAR'NABAS, meaning SON OF COMFORT, a Levite, native of Cyprus.
Acts 18:7 - A man name Titius JUSTUS
Colossians 4:10 - JESUS called JUSTUS and Mark a cousin of Bar'NABAS
Acts 15:22 - Bar'SABBAS also known as JUDAS
Acts 11:27 Barnabas and Saul worked together
Acts 12:25 Mark sent with Saul and Barnabas, Mark is also surnamed JOHN.
The big part is about to come up, but right now, it 'appears' , this 12th apostle who was NOT selected, JOSEPH is also known as Bar'Sabbas, Justus, Jesus, Judas, Bar'Nabas, Son of Comfort
Now PAUL/SAUL - Acts 9:22 - we know he was an intelligent man, because it says he proved 'logically' about the Christ
All of this culminates when reading Acts 13:6-11, (Again we know PAUL and SAUL are the same man), and from the scriptures listed above, there are links to (Joseph, Bar'Nabas, Bar'Sabas, Jesus, Justus, Judas all sharing the same name).
We have a meeting between a Sorcerer/false prophet/Jew called Bar'Jesus and with him a proconsul, intelligent man, Sergius PAULus. Who call Bar'Nabas(Jesus) and Saul (Paul) to him to learn the truth. The sorcerer is also known as EL'ymas, who tried to turn the proconsul (Sergius PAULus) away from the faith. Paul/Saul told him, "O man full of every sort of villainy, you son of the Devil, you enemy of everything righteous, will you not quit distoring the right ways of Jehovah? Well then look, Jehovah's hand is upon you, and you will be BLIND, not seeing the sunlight for a PERIOD OF TIME. Instantly a thick mist and darkness fell upon him, and he went around seeking men to lead him by the hand.
This also bears striking similarities to Acts 9:4-9 when Paul/Saul himself was blinded for a few days.
Is this all a coincidence? Did somebody corrupt this book and trying to trick people? Is this a hidden message trying to reveal a hidden truth?
