Was Jesus an Initiate into the Dionysian Mysteries?

Lord of the Dance

I’ve hinted about this idea, before, on these pages. The idea just won’t go away.

The Son of Man, on the other hand, feasts and drinks, and you say, ‘He’s a glutton and a drunkard, and a friend of tax collectors and other sinners!’ But wisdom is shown to be right by its results.

Matthew 11:10 (New Living Translation)

Here Jesus is comparing his own ‘loose’ ways with John the Baptist’s ‘strict’ life. People thought John had a demon. Was he comparing Dionysus and Orpheus, perhaps?

    This contradiction, the author explained, could be best understood if the idea of the Gnostic Christ is accepted as the basis of Jesus’ behaviour: The task of the messianic messenger was to help human beings discover who they truly are, and to assist them in overcoming the inimical cosmic powers and rejoin the fullness of the true light. “Salvation” thus became synonymous with “liberation,” and the way to this state was envisioned not as consisting of faith but of interior liberating experience facilitated by the teachings of the Liberator and by the sacramental mysteries he entrusted to his followers.
