...being the original answer of Peter in the Earliest Gospel: ''The men say that Thou art the Christ''.27 And Jesus went out, and his disciples, into the towns of Caesarea Philippi: and by the way he asked his disciples, saying unto them, Whom do men say that I am?
28 And they answered, John the Baptist; but some say, Elias; and others, One of the prophets.
29 And he saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Peter answereth and saith unto him, Thou art the Christ.
30 And he charged them that they should tell no man of him.
Now, what precedes the answer of Peter in Caesarea Philippi is the following episode:
22 Jesus and his followers came to Bethsaida. There some people brought a blind man to Jesus and begged him to touch the man. 23 So Jesus took the blind man’s hand and led him out of the village. Then he spit on the man’s eyes and put his hands on the man and asked, “Can you see now?”
24 The man looked up and said, “Yes, I see people, but they look like trees walking around.”
25 Again Jesus put his hands on the man’s eyes. Then the man opened his eyes wide and they were healed, and he was able to see everything clearly. 26 Jesus told him to go home, saying, “Don’t go into the town.”
The allusion behind ''men as trees walking'' is to a passage in Judges 9:8-15
Now it is clear why all the people (and not only Peter and the 12, as in the our falsified Mark) called Jesus as ''the Christ''. They wanted that Jesus was their ''King of Jews''.8 One day the trees decided to appoint a king to rule over them. They said to the olive tree, ‘You be king over us!’
9 “But the olive tree said, ‘Men and gods are honored by my oil. Should I stop making it and go and sway over the other trees?’
10 “Then the trees said to the fig tree, ‘Come and be king over us!’
11 “But the fig tree answered, ‘Should I stop making my sweet and good fruit and go and sway over the other trees?’
12 “Then the trees said to the vine, ‘Come and be king over us!’
13 “But the vine answered, ‘My new wine makes men and gods happy. Should I stop making it and go and sway over the trees?’
14 “Then all the trees said to the thornbush, ‘Come and be king over us.’
15 “But the thornbush said to the trees, ‘If you really want to appoint me king over you, come and find shelter in my shade! But if not, let fire come out of the thornbush and burn up the cedars of Lebanon!’
Jesus was not, for the people, ''John the Baptist, or Elias, or one of the old prophets''. He was simply the davidic Christ.
Since the vox populi in a Gospel is not vox dei, then the contrary is perfectly true for the Earliest Gospel: Jesus was not the Christ predicted in the Jewish Scriptures.
