She uses the well known 'pesher' technique to extract a very different story about the life of Jesus from the New Testament. (he died in Rome an old man, for everything else you will have to read the book!) Thanks for the tip, I have posted on this thread that Jesus was a member of sects - the Essenes, the Nazarene's and the order of Melchizedek, there's a tradition that he came to England and spoke with the Druids and the Buddhists have a record of Jesus going East to study with them and then took the teachings back home. I've heard before that Jesus did not die, of course there was Holy Blood, Holy Grail that wrote about it. And of course the Muslims believe that Jesus lived and did not die on the cross and they have his tomb in Kashmir. The spiritualists have it that Jesus was actually a man called Apollonius and again, he died of old age. Interesting the author is working off Dead Sea Scrolls because again, as posted above, another scholar (John Allegro) working off the Dead Sea Scrolls has published that Christianity is partly based on Magic Mushroom Cult or Sect. This illustrates what I have been trying to say that the Bible is like a tapestry that tells a story and has other information encoded into it. The main framework is Sun and Nature worship, there seems to be Magic Mushroom references and Fertility Cult references taken from earlier Pagan traditions and it also incorporates Moral lessons for the 'Babes' or as said by other's taking the Bible literally is like 'Milk for the Babes' and only when your ready or initiated to a high enough level that you can learn the Meat or spiritual lessons woven into the book. Looking up about the book I think I have seen the Documentary made about it - The Riddle Of The Dead Sea Scrolls, found it on YouTube so I'll post it here. Thanks.
