    Matthew 26: 53
    Do you think I cannot call on my Father, and he will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels?

    Dr. Robert Eisenman, Author of James the Brothers of Jesus
    John the Baptist was of the Qumran culture if not of the Qumran community who believed in bathing because they believed angels would join them in camps.

    Steve Campbell, Author of Historical Accuracy
    Jesus is baptized by John the Baptist which connects him to the belief of angels joining the militant, anti-Roman, anti-Herodian Essene camps.

    Dr. Robert Eisenman
    The works of Josephus survive because the works were not anti-Roman.
    The Greco-Roman gospels survive because they were not anti-Roman.
    The Dead Sea Scrolls as anti-Roman as they were would not have survived if they were not hidden away in jars.

    Steve Campbell
    Matthew 26: 53, as well as his baptism by John the Baptist, is letting us know Jesus was not so distant from the militant, War-Scroll-reading community–
    who of course, with their legions of angels, lost the Battle of Galilee and the First Jewish-Roman War: they lost the battle and the war.

    There was no show-down, no Jewish Revolt on Pilate’s watch. Now, Jesus speaks of his military capacity (capacity for violent war) at Matthew 26:53 before his trials. Who was there to hear this? The answer is at Matthew 26: 47, a large crowd armed with swords and clubs sent from the chief priests and elders of the people. Those people would have reported back to the chief priests and elders.

    Of course, Jesus had committed sacrilege with his Last Supper (see Leviticus 17: 10), God, his Father, had turned his face away from Jesus; so, Jesus would not have had one legion at his disposal. The chief priests, elders, and Romans would look and say to Jesus, you and what army? Jesus would turn around and ask, Father, why have you forsaken me?

    Judas would have told the chief priests about the Last Supper. The priests would have discussed Leviticus 17: 10; and, as we read in Jesus in the Talmud by Peter Schafer, Jesus would have been deemed a teacher who went astray, misleading anyone who would listen to him. Those who loved him and stayed with him in the end, ate a poisoned Last Supper to the extent God was true to Leviticus 17: 10.

    I’m sure the Essene community would not want to be caught up in the Talmudic net of Leviticus 17:10.

    Second, Jesus’ fate was sealed at Matthew 26: 53, so far as being a threat to Rome.

    QUESTION: Mr. Campbell, Jesus was a composite character of historical fiction.

    Steve Campbell, author of Historical Accuracy
    Even if a person wanted to hold on to the Biblical Jesus, that Jesus crossed the line of Judaism at the Last Supper and crossed the line of high priests and elders who did not want a threat to Rome to rise in their community.
