Backstory: The Judeo-Christian sequence of Bibles started in the Babylonian Kingdom [Iraq] and Harran [Turkey], areas obedient to Anunnaki Prince Marduk. In 1393 BCE Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar conquered Jerusalem, scattered Jewish commoners and brought the Israeli elite and to Babylon and the Jewish scholars to Harran. The captive scholars in Harran wrote Genesis. In Genesis, the scholars conflated the roles of our creators–Enki (Lucifer), Ninmah (Lilith) and Ningishzidda (Thoth)–with that of Nibiran Goldmining Expedition Commander Enlil (Yahweh) who opposed our creation and ordered us drowned. The Bible-writers spun Enlil’s attempts to assert divine direction to his orders to exterminate us Earthlings, his hatred of women and his resistance to obeying him blindly and to his order to kill followers of other Anunnaki Royals who also posed as gods. “Our species’ internecine violence is a product of Babel-factoring for crowd control that has carried through to great wars and the religious mayhem of crusades, jihads, inquisitions and persecutions and not intrinsically of human nature.” The Bible’s compilers “make Enlil their single monotheistic deity. Religious, military and political controllers suppressed the knowledge about the alien presence.” [Freer: Manifesto for the Children of the 21st Century]. Genesis spun allusions to the Anunnaki scientist Enki, who generally supported Earthlings and was, in the older writings an Anunnaki called Adonai and did good things to or for the Hebrews as though he was just Enlil being nice. When Enlil perpetrated his many murders, the Israelite Bible writers called him Yahweh, whom they wrote, should be worshipped in fear. They “sublimated Enlil–a disagreeable, harsh, peevish individual, cruel toward humans–into a cosmic being.
JERUSALEM TEMPLE #2
In 539 BCE, CYRUS, King of Persia, whom Marduk welcomed, conquered Babylon. Cyrus returned the Israelite elite and the writers of Genesis from Babylon and Harran to Jerusalem. He built a new temple for them from 538 to 515 BCE.
Greeks, whom Alexander of Macedon led, defeated Cyrus’s successor, Xerxes. Alexander’s successors, the Ptolemys and Selecuids, brought Jerusalem into the Greek world of commerce. Peace prevailed in Jerusalem for centuries. Jerusalem became a hub of commerce for the Greek world. Jerusalem expats sent annual taxes back to the Temple in Jerusalem. Jews from Jerusalem traded and settled throughout this Hellenistic world. Many Jews settled in the bustling Greek city of Alexandria in Egypt.
Cyrus’ successor, CAMBYSES, conquered Sumer, Mari, Mittani, Hatti, Elam, Assyria, Egypt and the Persian Empire. But in 522 BCE, DARIUS murdered Cambyses and ruled the extended Persian Empire.
This second temple narrowly avoided being destroyed again in 332 BCE when the Jews refused to recognize Alexander as a god. >>>
