Lightbulb Scrolls


"Today, in your hearing, the scriptures are fulfilled."



A scroll is a roll of papyrus, parchment, or paper which has been written, drawn or painted upon for the purpose of transmitting information or using as a decoration...In Dynastic Egypt scrolls were made from papyrus... The way a scroll was read by being unrolled meant scribes were sometimes confused; for example, there are versions of the Egyptian Book of the Dead with repeated sections.

Lightbulb Guide To The Afterlife

The Book of the Dead is the modern name of an ancient Egyptian funerary text, used from the beginning of the New Kingdom (around 1550 BC) to around 50 BC. The original Egyptian name for the text, transliterated rw nw prt m hrw is translated as "Book of Coming Forth by Day".



There was no single or canonical Book of the Dead. The surviving papyri contain a varying selection of religious and magical texts and vary considerably in their illustration. Some people seem to have commissioned their own copies of the Book of the Dead, perhaps choosing the spells they thought most vital in their own progression to the afterlife. The Book of the Dead was most commonly written in hieroglyphic or hieratic script on a papyrus scroll, and often illustrated with vignettes depicting the deceased and their journey into the afterlife.

Arrow Flesh Eating Stone

A sarcophagus is a funeral receptacle for a corpse, most commonly carved or cut from stone. The word "sarcophagus" comes from the Greek σαρξ sarx meaning "flesh", and φαγειν phagein meaning "to eat", hence sarkophagus means "flesh-eating"; from the phrase lithos sarkophagos (λιθος σαρκοφάγος). Since lithos is Greek for stone, lithos sarcophagos means 'flesh eating stone'. The word came to refer to a particular kind of limestone that was thought to decompose the flesh of corpses interred within it...


They were wrapped with strips of white linen to protect the body from being damaged. After that, they were wrapped in a sheet of canvas to further protect them. Many sacred charms and amulets were placed in and around the mummy and the wrappings. This was intended to protect the mummy from harm and to give good luck to the Ka of the mummy. Once preserved, they were lain to rest in a sarcophagus inside a tomb, where it was believed that the mummy would rest eternally. The mummy's mouth would later be opened in a ritual designed to symbolize breathing, giving rise to legends about resurrected mummies...

The first evidence of intentional mummification in Egypt dates to 3500 B.C... Parts of mummified human bodies recovered from Hierakonpolis exhibit evidence of resin and linen wrappings...

And they took away the body of Yeshua and wrapped it in linen and in sweet spices...



Dead kings, queens, and nobles were prepared even more carefully. Instead of being buried without clothes, they were wrapped in linen, which is a type of cloth made from the flax plant. To protect the body even further, melted resin (a sticky plant extract that hardens to a varnish-like finish) was used to coat the linen bandages. After the resin dried, the body was placed with jewels and treasures in a tightly closed coffin and buried even deeper than an ordinary grave...

People weren't the only kind of mummies-- cats, crocodiles, baboons, and a legion of other animal species were immortalized as well...

Arrow Freemasonry and the doctrine of reincarnation

Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold I shew you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed in a moment .... for this corruptible must put on incorruption and this mortal must put on immortality .... then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory."

- 1 Corinthians, XV, 50-4.


It is a somewhat saddening reflection that in spite of the presumable millions of years of human life on this planet, there is no general belief as to whence we come and whither we go, or indeed as to why there is any coming or going at all. The meaning and purpose of life are still beyond the scope of physical science; they are matters of faith at best and not infrequently of despair. The pain of the world, the transparent ruthlessness of Nature, the amazing inequalities of human existence, the seeming grave injustices in the lives of the majority, are, as far as our reason goes, as great enigmas to us today in the twentieth century as they have ever been so long as we have any trace of human history. In such a state of affairs we cannot afford to cast aside without hearing any theory that attempts seriously to throw light on the darkness.

'Man is the master of his own destiny'. What he has sown, that must he also reap...

Among the many unusual theories presented in this book is that both the Celtic Druids and the Jews originated in India – and that the name of the Biblical Abraham is really a variation of the word Brahma, created by shifting the last letter to the beginning...

Lightbulb The Essene Revelations on the Historical Jesus

With the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls, new and exciting theories about the historical Jesus have arisen in the form of intriguing books such as Jesus in the House of the Pharaohs, which poses the idea that Jesus was indeed the Teacher of Righteousness referred to in the Scrolls and revered by the Essenes, a secret Jewish sect that removed itself from mainstream Jewish thought and tradition. Author Ahmed Osman also offers up a fascinating argument for a totally new concept of when Jesus actually lived and preached – almost 1400 years before the Christian New Testament places his birth.

In fact, using solid documentation with quotes and references from the Old and New Testaments, the Scrolls, the Nag Hammadi texts, Talmudic sources and the Koran, Osman states his belief that Jesus was, in fact, the same person as Joshua of the Old Testament, and a contemporary of Moses, AND that Jesus was also known as Tutankhamun, the pharaoh ruler of Egypt between 1361 and 1352 B.C.. Now, if this all sounds confusing, you have to read the book, which details the long history of the mythology of the Christ story, and shows how this story has been told again and again throughout “biblical” history with different names attached, told long before even “biblical history,” as in the story of Isis/Osiris and other pre-Christian creation and hero stories.

What is so mind-blowing about this theory is the fact that Osman supports his ideas with actual comparisons of passages in holy texts that often counter the history of Christ that we are most familiar with, yet are there in plain sight for anyone who wants to look them up and see for themselves. The Old Testament is filled with references to a Messiah figure just like Jesus, with exact parallels of the Christ saga, yet uses either no name or different names to portray what the ancient Essenes believed to have been a person who actually had suffered, died and rose from death MANY CENTURIES BEFORE JESUS OF THE NEW TESTAMENT. I use capital letters hear because this is a fascinating and provocative concept backed up, again, by plenty of textual evidence, that most orthodox Christians and even Jews will pass off as pure heresy, yet Osman shows again and again how the Old Testament refers to the coming of the Messiah as an event that had already taken place. This is backed up by many other Talmudic sources, and Osman also gives good argument for the fact that some of the stories about Jesus that later appeared on the scene had obviously been doctored to do away with this shocking truth (he is not alone in this - other scholars believe this, as well). After all, what modern Christian would want to believe Jesus was an Egyptian pharaoh, or that the story of his life is not really the story of his life?

But for many scholars who study mythology, comparative religion and objective history, and are not tied to the orthodoxy of the Catholic Church’s demands for revisionism, this book offers a new way of seeing the older stories of the Bible and other religious texts that talk about a Jesus-like figure, born of a virgin, died and risen again, yet without the actual name Jesus attached. Perhaps indeed, as Osman states, Jesus was originally a different person operating his ministry in a much earlier time, but whose presence was utterly needed again 1400 years later, when Jerusalem struggled to be free from Roman rule, and a new Messiah would have come in quite handy in the historical scheme of things. Hmmmm…food for thought.

Osman also digs into the historical background of Moses, whom he believed was a contemporary of Jesus (Joshua) and also the life and importance of John the Baptist, a man whom many still believe to have been the real Messiah. In addition, there is plenty of food for thought about the Essenes themselves, who believed they were the true inheritors of the teachings of Christ, the Teacher of Righteousness mentioned in the Scrolls, as well as the identity of the true King David (there were actually TWO Davids!) of the historical bloodline that led directly to Jesus.

Several interesting photos of the Egyptian pharaohs and ancient art add to this ongoing mystery of the true identity of Christ. One thing is for sure, upon reading Jesus in the House of the Pharaohs, it is hard to think of Christian history in the same way again. Kudos to Osman for his courage and his great research abilities, which will no doubt open the floodgates to more debate, and perhaps, ultimately, to the complete release of the remaining Dead Sea Scrolls, now being kept under wraps, which may once and for all reveal the truth about a man we all seek to know more about.

Lightbulb The emblematical meaning of the Sun

The christian religion and Masonry have one and the same common origin: both are derived from the worship of the Sun. The difference between their origin is, that the christian religion is a parody on the worship of the Sun, in which they put a man whom they call Christ, in the place of the Sun, and pay him the same adoration which was originally paid to the Sun, as I have shown in the chapter on the origin of the Christian religion. [NOTE: Referring to an unpublished portion of the work of which this chapter forms a part. -- American Editor, 1819 [This paragraph is omitted from the pamphlet copyrighted by Madame Bonneville in 1810, as also is the last sentence of the next paragraph. -- Editor.]

In Masonry many of the ceremonies of the Druids are preserved in their original state, at least without any parody. With them the Sun is still the Sun; and his image, in the form of the sun is the great emblematical ornament of Masonic Lodges and Masonic dresses. It is the central figure on their aprons, and they wear it also pendant on the breast in their lodges, and in their processions. It has the figure of a man, as at the head of the sun, as Christ is always represented.

At what period of antiquity, or in what nation, this religion was first established, is lost in the labyrinth of unrecorded time. It is generally ascribed to the ancient Egyptians, the Babylonians and Chaldeans, and reduced afterwards to a system regulated by the apparent progress of the sun through the twelve signs of Zodiac by Zoroaster the law giver of Persia, from whence Pythagoras brought it into Greece. It is to these matters Dr. Dodd refers in the passage already quoted from his oration.

The worship of the Sun as the great visible agent of a great invisible first cause, "Time without limits," spread itself over a considerable part of Asia and Africa, from thence to Greece and Rome, through all ancient Gaul, and into Britain and Ireland.

Smith, in his chapter on the antiquity of Masonry in Britain, says, that "notwithstanding the obscurity which envelopes Masonic history in that country, various circumstances contribute to prove that Free-Masonry was introduced into Britain about 1030 Years before Christ." It cannot be Masonry in its present state that Smith here alludes to. The Druids flourished in Britain at the period he speaks of, and it is from them that Masonry is descended. Smith has put the child in the place of the parent.

It sometimes happens, as well in writing as in conversation, that a person lets slip an expression that serves to unravel what he intends to conceal, and this is the case with Smith, for in the same chapter he says, "The Druids, when they committed any thing to writing, used the Greek alphabet, and I am bold to assert that the most perfect remains of the Druids' rites and ceremonies are preserved in the customs and ceremonies of the Masons that are to be found existing among mankind." "My brethren" says he, "may be able to trace them with greater exactness than I am at liberty to explain to the public."

This is a confession from a Master Mason, without intending it to be so understood by the public, that Masonry is the remains of the religion of the Druids; the reasons for the Masons keeping this a secret I shall explain in the course of this work.

As the study and contemplation of the Creator [is] in the works of the creation, the Sun, as the great visible agent of that Being, was the visible object of the adoration of Druids; all their religious rites and ceremonies had reference to the apparent progress of the Sun through the twelve signs of the Zodiac, and his influence upon the earth. The Masons adopt the same practices. The roof of their Temples or Lodges is ornamented with a Sun, and the floor is a representation of the variegated face of the earth either by carpeting or Mosaic work.

The Masons, in order to protect themselves from the persecution of the christian church, have always spoken in a mystical manner of the figure of the Sun in their Lodges, or, like the astronomer Lalande, who is a Mason, been silent upon the subject. It is their secret, especially in Catholic countries, because the figure of the Sun is the expressive criterion that denotes they are descended from the Druids, and that wise, elegant, philosophical religion, was the faith opposite to the faith of the gloomy Christian church. [NOTE: This sentence is omitted in Madame Bonneville's publication. -- Editor.]

Lightbulb Holy Thutmoses

The Hiram Key: Pharoahs, Freemasons, and the Discovery of the Secret Scrolls of Jesus, by Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas, was born of the curiosity of these two initiated Freemasons to understand the source and meaning of the baffling rituals of their order.



The result is a book with revolutionary implications for our understanding of the roots of Judaism and Christianity, and it calls into question the validity of the claims these religions make for themselves today.

The authors' researches led them to ancient Egypt. These two are certainly not the first or last to see the source of Judeo/ Christian/ Islamic tradition in the religion of Egypt, but they have unearthed a fascinating story which I summarize here.

Abraham, the recognized father of the tradition, was from the Sumerian city of Ur. The Egytpians referred to the Semitic nomadic tribes which originated from Sumer as the 'Hibaru', from whence 'Hebrew'. Abraham was likely one of these, and like Moses it is said that he saw himself as leading ones to the 'promised land' of Canaan. The Bible says he also went into Egypt.

The dates historians give for Abraham of about 1900-1600BC coincide with the Hyksos takeover of Egypt.of 1786-1567BC.

Though the Bible suggests differently, and understandably so, given its writers' attempt to come up with a cogent history and theology centuries after the fact, it is Moses who introduced YHWH to the wide world, and not Abraham. People in Sumer worshiped their local and even familial deities at this time. The "god of the fathers' is a uniquely Sumerian concept. The 'god of Abraham' was uniquely that, and certainly not the Midianite YHWH.

"...the evidence shows that the Jews are not a race or even a historical nation...they are an amalgam of Semite groups who found commonality in their statelessness and adopted a theological history based on a Sumerian sub-group."

Encrypted in Masonic ritual up to this day is the story of the assassination of Pharoah Seqenenre Tao of Thebes by the then-ruling invader Apophis, in order to wrest the Egyptian secrets of kingly succession from him in the attempt to legitimize his claim as pharoah over Egypt. The Hyksos ('desert kings') ruled Egypt briefly, but they knew that the true power over people's hearts and minds would always remain in Thebes as long as they did not have access to the mysteries, i.e. the death/rebirth ritual which was simultaneously the funeral for the old Pharoah, and the coronation of his successor.

"The king's right to rule was based on the story of the murder of Osiris [son of sky Goddess Nut, both man and god!] by Set and told of how Isis reconstructed Osiris's body and then had a son Horus, by him. Horus went on to take the kingdoms of Egypt back from Set in a mighty battle. Each king thereafter was considered to be an incarnation of Horus, literally a "son of God'. When the king died he merged with Osiris (God the Father) and went to live in the kingdom of the dead and his son became Horus the next mighty god-king."

"...the central crucial process of king-making involved the candidate travelling to the stars to be admitted a member of the society of gods and there to be made the Horus, possibly being crowned by the dead king-the new Osiris. At some point in the events of the night the old king and the new king journied to the constellation of Orion together, one to remain in his celestial home and one to return to rule the land of men."

The ritual is mentioned in the Pyramid Texts which are 4300 years old, but the ritual itself is at least 1000 years older.

The authors realized that modern Masonic ceremonies ape this ritual. Where did they get this information?

1780BC marks the beginning of the Hyksos reign, and a likely timeframe for Abraham's entry into Egypt. Was Abraham one of these Hyksos?

1570BC marks the reign of Hysksos 'Pharoah Apohis, and, interestingly, dovetails nicely with the story of Joseph and his brothers. Remember in Genesis it says Joseph became vizier to the Pharoah-could he have been vizier to this Apophis? Yes, according to dates.

It was also at this time, 1550BC or so, that chronicles begin to tell of 'Habiru' slaves.

Joseph may have been the vizier to the Hyksos pharoah Apophis, and thus likely involved in planning the plot to wrest the secrets of kingly succession from Seqenenre Tao. The thugs who were sent to Thebes clearly botched their mission. The Masonic ritual of the 3rd Degree dramatizes the attempt to extract the secrets, the king's refusal, and the subsequest brutal murder, to which the mummified remains of Tao attest. Genesis 49:6 refers to the murder by Joseph's brothers of a man while trying to wrest secrets from him-did Joseph send his brothers on such a 'suicide mission' for revenge on them? It is told in the Masonic rite that the murderers were caught and killed.

Shortly after the assassination, the Hyksos were defeated, and these may have been the 'Hebrew slaves' of Moses' time-the Egyptians were not in the habit of making slaves, but what to do with the defeated Hyksos who still lived in Egypt? And so now comes Moses.

The story of Sargon I, king of Sumer centuries before Moses, is the obvious source of the 'bullrushes' story, and this indicates attempts by the authors of the Bible to mythologize the story of Moses. So who was he?

Well whoever else he was, Moses was an initiate into Egyptian 'mysteries', and the Bible is clear on this. Of course the true mysteries of kingly succession were lost with the assassination of Seqenenre Tao. Logically, these new 'mysteries' were probably centered around a retelling of the events around the assassination of Tao, as the third degree Masonic rites reflect.

It is important to remember that there was no such thing as a 'Jew' at this point, and none until the Babylonian Captivity. But there were probably a few thousand of these Hibarus/Hyksos, and though they spoke a Semitic language they worshiped Egyptian gods. YHWH also is nowhere in sight-they had not heard of him. He was the local deity of storm and war of Mt. Sinai/Horeb, of the Midians. When Moses was on the run for the murder he committed, the Bible tells us Moses took a Midian wife, and when he led the 'Hebrews' out of Egypt, he went to his father-in-law with them, who told Moses to go up to the mountain to talk to the local god who lived up there. There is only one language the commandments could have been written in, and that is Egyptian.

One of YHWH's first orders was for Moses to slay the 3000 'sinners' whom he found worshiping the golden calf (the Egyptian. Apis).

"Whoever Moses actually was, he became a murderer in Egypt and spent the rest of his life killing huge numbers of people, both strangers and those who had placed their trust in him. We found it difficult to reconcile this man and his view of God with the God of modern Jews and Christians, To us this disparity proves the idea of God is not a static entity but a social focus that grows and evolves as he intertwines with other gods, slowly evolving into an idealised figurehead who reflects the morality and needs of the time. It is not so much that God made man in His image;it is more that man continually recrafts God in his image."

Throughout the Old Testament it is easy to see that YHWH was by no means the only god worshiped. Maybe they called on him in times of war...which were many. Even Solomon turned away...

The secrets brought from Egypt by Moses were transmitted through the Levite priests. The ark of the covenant as it is described is of Egyptian style and ornamentation.

The building of the Temple was an attempt at a literalization of the Egyptian mysteries, 'a reconstruction of the Egyptian concept of political stability through unity.' The two pillars that had at first symbolized the unity of upper and lower Egypt became " Israel (foundation) and Judah (establishment) and when united, stability.

What would a secret 'king-making' ritual do for a stateless, cultureless people? It would give them an identity. The pillars are a symbol of this that passed from Egypt through Moses.

Judaism did not cohere as a faith until the return from the Babylonian captivity. The word 'Jew' itself was coined during this time. Those who returned came back to an Israel that worshiped many gods. They, through their experience in Babylon, saw the strength of a coherent theology on display in Mesopotamia, and set about making one of their own.

"Contrary to popular belief, the Jews of this period were not monotheistic and even if they did hold Yahweh to be the special god of their nation, they would have worshiped Babylonian gods upon enforced arrival in their new home. Then it was quite normal to show respect to the god or gods of an area one visited as a matter of prudence. Yahweh's zone of influence lay in Jerusalem and from all the evidence available it seems that even his strongest supporters never created a shrine to him in the entire period of their captivity.

Whilst most of these Jews got on with life as it came to them, a small numbers of the deportees were philosophical and fundamentalist priests from Solomon's Temple who can only be described as 'inspired people with a thwarted sense of destiny', and they sought to rationalise the situation as best they could. It is now generally excepted that is was here, during the Babylonian captivity, that most of the first five books of the Bible were written down in a passionate search for purpose and heritage. Using information about the beginning of time from their captors the Jews were able to reconstruct the way that God had created the world and mankind, as well as gain details about later events such as the Flood [dated at about 6000 years ago]."

What these authors wrote are full of both Sumerian and Egyptian influences: The pillars for example: 'Jacob' comes from the Sumerian word IA-A-GUB, which means 'pillar'. Through Ezekiel, the story of Tao is translated to the time of the building of the Temple of Solomon, and Seqenenre Tao becaomes Hiram in Masonic ritual, said to be the architect of Solomon's Temple. Ezekiel's visions make great sense if they refer to the 'Egyptian-style' secret rituals that the Levite priests performed in the Holy of Holies of the Temple.

One of the first things the returning Jews did was to ban marriage outside the 'race.' They also banned women as priests, and instituted strict dietary laws. And of course, they rebuilt the Temple. It is now 600BC, and perhaps this date can rightly mark the beginning of Judaism as a coherent theology and cultural glue.

The Greek influence around 400BC also swept through the Jewish world. 'Diaspora' Jews established conclaves in many Greek-controlled cities and were seen as betrayers by those who remained at home. The worst thing they did in orthodox eyes was to invent the 'synagogue' (Gr:'bringing together') The ones at home believed God could only be worshiped in His temple in Jerusalem.

"The religion of Yahweh was by now coming to the attention of occultists who were fascinated by the magical properties they saw in it and who took a very different view of its meaning. The numerological seized their attention and even the Hebrew name of God, pronounced Yahweh but written JHVH, took on a special meaning. The Greeks called this name of God the 'Tetragrammaton' and treated the Jewish texts as a source of supposedly ancient, esoteric wisdom. New cults arose in the Hellenistic empire, basing themselves on the scriptures of Yahweh yet not being themselves Jews. These gentiles took what they wanted from Judaism and it was these groups...who were a breeding ground for a later Greek mystery cult called Christianity."

The Jews were only "Jewish' for 600 years before the Romans scattered them. The Roman invasion further refined the tenets of the faith. Is it a principle that outside pressure is what gives rise to a concretized religious system? Is Judaism itself a 'paranoid' response to captivity and invasion? Fundamentalism in the three 'Book' religions is popularly seen as an unfortunate response to the advent of modernity, but what if the truth is that the tendency to literalize spiritual truths and respond to challenge in an embattled and paranoid manner is intrinsic to these religions, and perhaps the most original and aithentic thing about them?

Look at the Old Testament as history-who are these Hebrews? In their own book it says they came into Canaan and did not leave even an animal alive. They were brutal invaders, and they were by no means united by a theology at this point. The whole Old Testament tells again and again of the 'idolatrous' nature of most of the 'children of Israel.'

Once they got to Canaan, they still could not find unity among themselves, and within 200 years split into the two kingdoms of Judah and Israel. The Bible says Israel continued in its pagan ways, while in Judah an attempt was made, by the building of the Temple in Jerusalem, to concretize a national religion. Judaism itself may be seen in light of this story I am telling as the attempt to literalize a necessary inner process, the secrets of which had been lost to them. Look how this plays out in the 'Promised Land' covenant with which Israel seeks to bludgeon the world,even to this very day. And the two religions which use Judaism as their source engage in the same errors, of course. They have become invaders in their own right, in this same attempt to make literal the 'KINGDOM" which is only to be properly understood as an internal spiritual condition. These religions do not have 'fundamentalist' tendencies-they are fundamentalist at their core. And based on a very basic error.

From the time of Abraham, and through most of their history except for that brief time in Canaan as conquerors, the 'Jews' have always been nomadic.

The Qumranians, who lived 'in the wilderness' in the Judaean hills around the time of the birth of Jesus, seem to have constituted a very Orthodox Jewish community with these same Egypt-derived secret teachings at their center. During the time of the Roman occupation, they saw themselves as the only true Jews, rejecting the Pharisees and Saducees of Jerusalem as liars, hypocrites and fools, little better than the collaborator Herods, puppet kings of Israel. And it is two members of this community, Jesus and his brother James, who sought to fulfill the promise of Judaism as the two-fold Messiah (again the two pillars), with Jesus as the worldly Davidic king, and James the foundation pillar, the Levite priest, Was James the 'Jesus Barabbas' whom the Jews spared that day on Calvary?

He went on to become the head of the 'Christian' church in Jersalem, until his death by stoning in approximately 67AD. The explosion of civil unrest that his death precipitated led to the Romans' destruction of the Temple and slaughter and scattering of the Jews in 70AD. The authors draw on much evidence, both historical and from existing Masonic ritual, to conclude that scrolls containing the secret teachings which originated in Egypt were buried beneath the Temple, to be unearthed by the Knights Templar 1000 years later. How else could Masonic rituals, which are in effect mystery plays which tell the story of the assassination of Tao, the revised Egyptian king-making ritual, and the discovery of the scrolls beneath the Temple, reflect this history?

The book tells of Paul and the Romanization of the Christian teaching too, the one the Dead Sea Scrolls call 'The Spouting Liar," the implication being that the 'true church' as Jesus and the Qumranians saw it never made it into Roman Christianity. The legitimacy of the Christian church as most understand it today is thus called into question. These authors are certainly not the first or last to do so. Robert Eisenman, a principal Dead Sea Scrolls scholar does a devastating job of this in his book James: The Brother of Jesus.

The Qumranians and their descendents, the gnostics and Nasoreans, were closer to the essence. They rejected the divinity of Jesus, the virgin birth, and the 'resurrection' as a literal event. The Egyptian rite was designed to take the new Pharoah through a spiritual 'death/rebirth' cycle, and there is evidence that this rite was practiced widely in Egypt, and not only among the Pharoahs. The Greek Eleusinian Mysteries may well have the same source in Egypt.

The wilderness dwellers at Qumran clearly possessed some sort of 'secret teaching', the secret history really, of the attempt to highjack Egyptian knowledge and claim it as 'Hebrew'.

The implications of the Dead Sea Scrolls and Nag Hamadi discoveries have not been appreciated in their fullness. A good question is why did Egypt's 'two pillars' come to mark a civilization of stability and tolerance while the attempts of their imitators have failed? Clearly, the Hyksos and those who came after never understood the values they saw in Egypt. They thought in terms of crude brute force and dominance through the submission of others. This is the Western history that unfolds as a result of these errors of spiritual understanding. Here is the one-ton gorilla, the origins of the 'New World Order.'

About the Authors,

Christopher Knight was born in 1950 and completed his education with a degree in advertising and graphic design in 1971. He has always had a strong interest in social behavior and belief systems. For many years he has been a consumer psychologist involved in the planning of new products and their marketing. In 1976 he became a Freemason and is now the managing director of a marketing and advertising agency.

Dr Robert Lomas was born in 1947 and gained a first class honors degree in electrical engineering before taking up research into solid state physics. He later worked on guidance systems for Cruise missiles and was involved in the early development of personal computers and has always had a keen interest in the history of science. He currently lectures at Bradford University Management Centre. In 1986 he became a Freemason and quickly became a popular lecturer on Masonic history in lodges in West Yorkshire.

also,

Whilst researching The Book of Hiram Robert had created an electronic database of a lot of the early ritual material he was using, to make it easier for him to search and sequence it. Speaking to the Webmaster he described the website he created as 'rather like a Masonic rubbish heap, which had all the old embarrassingly dirty washing that United Grand Lodge of England had been trying to hide for the last two hundred years'.

Arrow Tau

The Cross of Tau, named after the Greek letter it resembles, is suspected to have originated with the Egyptians. When a King was initiated into the Egyptian mysteries a tau was placed against his lips. It has been a symbol to many cultures before Christianity and is strongly identified with the bull in the astrological sign of Taurus

The Tau Cross (pronunciation: rhymes with 'how'). Where the Latin Cross often symbolizes New Testament teachings, the Tau Cross symbolizes the Old Testament.


The Tau Cross is so named from the Phoenician and Hebrew alphabet's last letter 'X', which was pronounced 'Taw'. This same sound transliterates to the Greek letter 'T'. Both the 'X' and 'T' shapes are used in forms of the Chi-Rho Cross.

Arrow No One Here Gets Out Alive



In the Ancient Mysteries the aspirant could not claim a participation in the highest secrets until he had been placed in the Pastos, a bed or coffin. The placing him in the coffin was called the symbolical death of the mysteries, and his deliverance was termed a raising from the dead. “The mind,” says an ancient writer, quoted by Stobaeus, “is affected in death just as it is in the initiation into the mysteries. And word answers to word, as well as thing to thing; for is to die, and to be initiated.” The coffin in Freemasonry is found on tracing boards of the early part of the eighteenth century, and has always constituted a part of the symbolism of the Third Degree, where the reference is precisely the same as that of the Pastos in the Ancient Mysteries...
