A question that has plagued biblical scholars and historians for centuries is why Plutarch wrote
nothing about Jesus or Christianity. He lived in the midst of the most successful groups and
churches determined to bring the new religion to the Greco-Roman world. He was born just a
decade or so after the crucifixion. His Pythagorean philosophy mirrored the lifestyle and doctrine of
Jesus and his closest disciples. He would have been profoundly interested in the acts and
movements of someone who was teaching Pythagorean philosophy to Jewish communities. He was
famous during his own lifetime for writing biographies and histories of people whose lives
impacted the Roman Empire and the Mediterranean world.

Plutarch's silence on Jesus and the Christian movement is deafening!
And it is among the strongest of the clues that lead to his door when searching for
the real identity of the man whose gospel became known as
Luke.

I believe Plutarch named his gospel "LUX" pronounced with a long
U. LUX and Luke's are homonyms;
both mean "
Light." It was the Sacred Knowledge of the Secret of Light as the foundation of Creation
that traveled the underground stream from mystery school to mystery school over the millennium --
until it was forced deep underground by the "Official Church" for almost two thousand years. It is
the Sacred Number, 432, that identifies Luke and Plutarch as members of the neo-Pythagorean
movement that became Christianity. The Victors in the second, third and forth centuries -- and
today's Christians whose religion was built on theirs -- practice a corrupted form of the
neo-Pythagorean philosophy espoused by Jesus the Nazarene. But it is from the root of that tree,
the Tree of Life, that Christianity had its genesis. And it is to that Tree of Life that the Christian world
must return if it is to find the Salvation promised.

There is abundant evidence that supports my thesis that Plutarch wrote Luke's gospel. The
evidence has been available for decades;
some of it has been available for centuries. I've done nothing more than compile the research
and reporting of biblical and historical scholars, linguists, and church tradition dating to the first
and second centuries.

Perhaps the most compelling and convincing way to present this information is to lay some of it
down side by side, point by point.
Both books, "
Gabriel's Gift" and "Plutarch's Parable"
examine these similarities in depth.
