A young Jesus lays the smack down on the elders and priests at the synagogue in one New Testament scene but you never are told where he gained all that knowledge. This book helps make that clear.
Do you know where the sharing of wine and bread as seen at the Last Supper came from? You will after you read this book.
There is a completely different view of what Jesus was attempting to do through the Crucifixion and Resurrection than what is taught by mainstream religions based on the literalist views of Christianity created by Rome through the Council of Nicaea. Did you know that those "gnostics" you hear about did not believe in "original sin" and he did not die to "save you from your sins". You will understand that a lot better after you read this book.
Do you have a clue who Joseph of Arimethea is? He just pops up out of nowhere and takes Jesus off to be buried. Did you know that such a burial is really only for the well to do? Bet you didn't... If you read this book you will find out a TON about Joseph of Arimethea and his relationship to Jesus. Oh yeah -- you fans of the whole "Merovingian Kings" thing... you really need to learn about Joseph of Arimethea.
This book also lends a LOT of credence to the "Jesus in India" storyline. After the scene in the New Testament where Jesus lays the smack on the priests and elders at the synagogue, it would seem that Jesus just toddled back to his home and built furniture with Joseph, Mary and his siblings. Nothing could be further from the truth. Jesus was quite the world traveler. Bet you wonder who he was travelling around the world with, huh? You will learn about that in this book as well.
Oh, and for those who think Druids are wild-eyed pagans, you get to learn a bit of truth about that nonsense as well. It seems the Romans invented that tale because they were having issues trying to conquer those "pagan savages". Bet you didn't know that the Druidic belief system is remarkably similar to Judaism and that Jesus studied with their masters during his world travels.
I have always suspected that the tales told were not quite right. Dolores' book opened my eyes with some ground-level, on-the-scene truth about what was really going on.
I bought this book with David Wilcock's "The Synchronicity Key". In an interesting bit of synchronicity, I read this one first. And one of the topics David talks about is the gross manipulation of Christianity by the Romans to suit their needs. Huh. Funny how that one worked out...
I HIGHLY recommend this book (and David's book as well as his "Source Field Investigations") to anyone who has honestly felt like there were things missing in the nice stories, that they'd been told only part of the story or worse had been told outright fabrications. If you at least remotely familiar with the idea of "the gnostics" and wondered how more of those ideas did not make it into the mainstream religions, well, read this book. It will help answer those questions.
