Book Description

This extraordinary document represents a new form of historical research, and straightens out many open questions and misinterpretations. It takes the form of direct dialogues between a modern researcher and a member of the Qumran Essene community, alive around the time of Christ.

The Qumran Essene community has become the focus of ideas about the connection of Jesus' teachings to earlier traditions. This book gives a full description of the nature and purpose of the community, and the birth and upbringing of Jesus and John the Baptist. Also, it gives Essene renderings of Key Old Testament stories, concerning Moses, Ezekiel, Daniel and others, plus startling insights into ancient history.

This information is candid and real, even about the Dead Sea Scrolls, and many Biblical images and statements are corrected and added to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique Wisdom April 19, 2001
Format:Paperback
I have never been a Jesus "freak," however, I do know he existed and one should strive to live life according to his teachings. The sad fact is I didn't remember much about what he taught (even after going to a Catholic school for 10 years). This book has sparked my interest to (re)learn about one of the greatest and most influential teachers that ever lived. When reading this book, it doesn't matter whether or not one believes in reincarnation. It also doesn't matter whether or not the female subject of this book was REALLY regressed into a past life as a man who was a teacher of Jesus. (I happen to believe this DID happen - I have studied reincarnation enough to know this could easily be true, and Cannon does an excellent job validating her research). What DOES matter is that people read this book for the lessons that will be learned. There are wonderful insights on biblical references (Old and New Testaments), the power of knowledge, as well as meditation techniques and the chakras. Also, the history of the Essene community at Qumran is explored in great detail. Even if one was to read this in the frame of mind that it is fiction, there would still be plenty gained from this book.

Read this book! It offers more fresh insight into the origins of Christianity, the early education of Christ, and the Essene community as a whole, than a dozen scholarly tomes whose depth and breadth could fill a thimble with their own enlightening, or in the very least, pertinent, conclusions.
Cannon's book is based on conversations she had with an Essene named Suddi, who lived in the Qumran community at the time of Christ. She had these conversations through regressionist therapy. They are a record of a past life of one of her patients. I, personally, do not believe in reincarnation, but I do believe we can and do experience, first-hand, the lifetimes of other people. I have no doubt this interview with Suddi is truly that -- a 20th century interview with a Qumran Essene. The repercussions of that, coupled with the statements made by Suddi in this book, are startling. The true origins of Christianity, its teachings, as well as the lifestyle and learning of the Essene community, are brought into a whole new light. This, coupled with genuine 20th century research, shakes the very foundations of our assumptions concerning Christianity and the Essenes and asks us to delve further into the issues which surround them.
Even if you do not believe in past lives, I would recommend you're reading this book. The perspective alone, even if it is totally made up in the mind of the author, is worth the cover price and more. If you're interested in the Essenes or the origins of Christianity, don't miss this book! It will bring all the rest of true scholarship into startling clarity, and may even help you formulate some new conclusions of your own.

5.0 out of 5 stars JESUS AND THE ESSENES September 21, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This extraordinary document represents a new form of historical research, and straightens out many open questions and misinterpretations. It takes the form of direct dialogues between a modern researcher and a member of the Qumran Essene community, alive around the time of Christ. The Qumran Essene community has become the focus of ideas about the connection of Jesus' teachings to earlier traditions. This book gives a full description of the nature and purpose of the community, and the birth and upbringing of Jesus and John the Baptist. Also, it gives Essene renderings of Key Old Testament stories, concerning Moses, Ezekiel, Daniel and others, plus startling insights into ancient history. This information is candid and for real, even about the Dead Sea Scrolls, and many Biblical images and statements are corrected and added to.
Only about 8 percent of Dolores' subjects are somnambulists and this source was one of them. It makes the story even more incredible as this subject, while in a deep trance answering questions, actually took on the personality of an ancient Essene man. This combination gave some very credible and useful information about that time period that has been such a mystery.
The discovery of the Dead Sea scrolls in 1959 was news for about a year and then sort of disappeared from the news lists. Why weren't they pursued? This book suggests a cover up because of the information that came forth from this ancient Essene source.
Where was Jesus and what was he doing between the ages of 12 and 30, the period that is blacked out in the Bible? What educational training did he get? Why was he so different? Can we really be more like him? This book gave some astonishing answers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cannon does it again! March 18, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a most enjoyable book. If as a child you had Christ beaten out of you by the Christian fundamentalists as I did, this book will heal many wounds and give your spirit a chance to reconnect with the Christconsciousnes that is within us all. If you're a Jerry Falwell-type, you won't like this book. But if you practice loving one another as Christ taught, then this book is a must read!

5.0 out of 5 stars INCREDIBLE & BREATH TAKING!! May 11, 2006
By Bunken
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I can not endorse or recommend this book any more than to say it is 10 stars on a 5 star scale! I have studied Jesus and the Essenes for over 30 years and I found this information enlightening. There are many mysteries explained about the Dead Sea scrolls, Moses, Ezekiel, creation, the Magi, and other Bible characters and stories. The information on the education and youth of Jesus is amazing. The revelations about Mary and her uncle Joeseph of Arimathea confirm information only now being written and speculated about. There are astonishing disclosures about the miracles in the Bible and the life of Jesus! Plan enough time to read this in one sitting or two at most. This book has the potential to change your life.
