Jesus didn't use cannabis oil the lies exposed

2.10.2003 Chris Bennett wrote in High Times media an article called Was Jesus a stoner? Bennett claims that holy anointing oil contained cannabis (kaneh-bosem) in the book of Moses. His claim is that Jesus anointed people with oil that contained cannabis. The High Times article says that ancient Christian texts (The Acts of Peter, Twelve Apostles) record that Jesus gave His disciples unguent box and a pouch full of medicine that they would go to heal the sick ones. The article says that ancient text (The Acts of Thomas) record about using of holy oil in a purpose of healing the sick ones. The article says that Jesus and His disciples spread healing effects of cannabis in the ancient world.

Bennet said that if cannabis was one of the main ingredients of the ancient Christian anointing oil, as history now indicates, and receiving this oil is what made Jesus the Christ (anointed) and his followers Christians, and to persecute those who use cannabis, could be considered anti-Christ.

The High Times article says that Gnostic texts indicate that Jesus used anointing oil added with cannabis and other entheogens that also used in shamanic rituals and ceremonies. The high Times article says also that Gnostics used cannabis, mushrooms, and other substances as sacraments, a means of achieving spiritual gnosis (wisdom and understanding).

Ex 30:
23 Take thou also unto thee principal spices, of pure myrrh five hundred shekels, and of sweet cinnamon half so much, even two hundred and fifty shekels, and of sweet (besem - bosem) calamus (qaneh) two hundred and fifty shekels,
24 And of cassia five hundred shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary, and of oil olive an hin:
25 And thou shalt make it an oil of holy ointment, an ointment compound after the art of the apothecary: it shall be an holy anointing oil.

The Hebrew word qaneh (calamus) refer to reed plant that grow near ponds, lakes and river and also on dry land. This plant (qaneh) did not grow in Israel, and according to researchers it was imported to Israel from Arabia and India. Researchers say that this reed plant was known in India as lemongrass or gingergrass. Some Bible scholars as famous Jewish rabbi Jarchi thought that probably this reed plant was brought more likely from Saba or some parts of Arabia than India, because Saba and Arabia was very near to Israel and India was very far off from Israel. Nowadays no one knows that what reed plant qaneh bosem was, but it is sure that it is not cannabis, because cannabis come from hemp plant that is not reed plant species.

Qaneh bosem or besem don't mean cannabis, but some sweet reed plant, whose origin we can't know for sure. The High Times article used Gnostic texts that it holds as ancient Christian texts. The truth is that Gnostic Christian texts are not the same thing than the Biblical text of the New Testament. Gnostic held Christianity as rival sect and they think that Gnosticism is the much better belief than Christianity. The purpose of Gnostic Christian text was to distort the message of the Biblical New Testament texts and therefore Gnostic Christian texts have not the authority of the Bible. For this reason Gnostic Christian texts have not connection to Jesus of the Bible and claims about Jesus and cannabis are false and untruthful claims.
I was not even aware of that false claims : )

any way, in war, there is propaganda, misinformation....

it takes a lot of time to explain: defense...., why not take an offense instead....

the best defense is a good offense.... that is: share the Gospel : )
Luke 5:17 ¶ And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to heal them.

According to the teaching of the Bible, Jesus healed the sick ones with the power of the Lord (the power of God). Anointing oil has a symbolic meaning, but the people were healed by the power of God. The testimony of the Bible says that in OT and NT did not used anointing oil mixed with cannabis. Jesus is the Messiah (anointed one) for the sake of God's thoughts and plan, not for the sake of receiving anointing oil as Bennett falsely claims. Jesus' disciples are Jesus' followers, because they believe that Jesus is the Messiah and the Saviour and it has nothing to do with anointing oil as Bennett falsely claims. Jesus' disciples say that using cannabis is a sin, and the question is not persecution, but saying sin as sin, because sin breaks and destroys the people. History and the Bible don't indicate that cannabis was an ingredient of Biblical anointing oil, but the wrong and false claim says so.

The claims of High Times that cannabis was one ingredient of Biblical anointing oil is a lie and wrong information. The agenda of High Times media is legalizing the drugs, so that is the reason why they try every way to recommend cannabis to the people. The people who have strong agenda act very often in a way that they try get people to believe that Jesus did the same thing as what is their agenda. Many people claim falsely that Jesus practice yoga, but that is not true. Some people say that Jesus was a gay, but that is not true. Many people who have some agenda try to avail Jesus' name, saying that Jesus did the same things (sin) what they are doing, although it is not true. Connecting Jesus to cannabis is an equal lie as to say that Jesus was a gay and practiced yoga.
