The Vegan Christ's Brother James the Just Marginalized by Paul & his Underlings. By Dr. Chapman Chen
For 2000 years, Jesus the Vegan Christ's family, including His brother James the Just, have been muted by Paul and his underlings. Although, thank God, some residues do remain, even in the mainstream canonical Gospels, they end up in the blind spot of many a Christian:-
"“Isn’t this the carpenter’s son? Isn’t his mother’s name Mary, and aren’t his brothers James, Joseph, Simon and Judas? Aren’t all his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all these things?”" (Matthew 13:55-56 NIV)
"Jesus left there and went to his hometown, accompanied by his disciples. When the Sabbath came, he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were amazed. “Where did this man get these things?” they asked. “What’s this wisdom that has been given him? What are these remarkable miracles he is performing? Isn’t this the carpenter? Isn’t this Mary’s son and the brother of James, Joseph,[a] Judas and Simon? Aren’t his sisters here with us?” And they took offense at him." (Mark 6:1-3 NIV).
"They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers." (Acts 1:14 NIV)
"Then after three years, I went up to Jerusalem to get acquainted with Cephas and stayed with him fifteen days. I saw none of the other apostles—only James, the Lord’s brother. I assure you before God that what I am writing you is no lie." (Gal.1:19 NIV).
