Christianity MUST Reconcile Leviticus 17: 10 with Jesus’ Direction to Do Something Which Turns God’s Face Away and Excommunicates One from God’s People

It’s not that I’m not interested in your book Orthodox Corruption of Scripture, I’m interested in the scholarly treatment of the most weighty issues. In Misquoting Jesus (your trade book equivalent to the scholarly work), an amazon reviewer quotes you from page 207-208 of that book:

Was Jesus an angry man?
[of interest to me, even if in Orthodox Corruption of Scripture (OCS)]

Was he completely distraught in the face of death?
[of interest to me, even if in OCS]

What should get me a publishing contract are these issues:

1) Was he distraught about the impending destruction of the Temple if you address that somewhere.

2) I, as an essayist and public speaker, have a problem with Jesus not sweating blood over Jerusalem surrounded by armies and the Temple being destroyed. He probably was distraught over that [emphasis being added] and then came up with the cannibalistic remembrance and the consumption of blood which turned God’s face from him, his Son of Man movement, and the followers which stayed with him after he instituted that affront to Lev. 17: 10. According to John’s gospel he did that way before the Last Supper which puts a whole different spin on why Orthodox Temple Authorities needed to get rid of him for just cause. And the Babylonian Talmud would be absolutely correct in finding fault in Jesus for leading people astray: leading people away from the face of God.

Textual Criticism is woefully incomplete until we reconcile Lev. 17: 10 and the Jesus of the Gospel of Matthew and wherever else Jesus is linked to scriptures in the Hebrew Bible. Jesus’ affront to Leviticus 17: 10 causes one to lose the Sunshine of God’s Face and to get excommunicated from God’s people. (This needs to be in edited scholarly and trade/mass market books, in Wikipedia, discussed at the Society of Biblical Literature, and much more.) Writing to be famous? This is the issue that can come forward. My time spent with Jewish scholarship shows there is a need for the issue to be discussed in that circle as well. This is a major (big, big, big as Oprah would say) theological issue.
