[Editor's Note: There are undeniably, many oddities, distortions,
and misinterpretations in the hundreds of published versions of the Bible.
A person who can be duped into believing that "the" Bible is the
infallible, written 'Word of God' is going to be played like a fiddle
night and day by evangelical charlatans and British
Israel front men like Pat Robertson, or Billy
Graham, or the carnival barkers seen on TBN, etc. In searching the Internet,
I thought this book was going to be a good example of exposing those distortions,
however I now have strong reservations about this book after reading a brief
description of the "untold
story" of Jesus' "twin brother, Judas Khrestus" and the
promotional blurbs at the publisher's web site.
While TV evangelical pitchmen like Robertson or Paul Crouch
suck in the gullible with their unctuous piety, there is another Christ-centered
Illuminati disinformation campaign going on that is attempting to rewrite
the history of Jesus and create a 'bloodline' for Him. The main promoter
of what is allegedly the 'bloodline' of Jesus (the Merovingians of France)
is none other than Sir
Laurence Gardner, Knights Templar bigwig, satanist, and shape-shifting
Other recent books, such as The DaVinci Code, help promote
the notion that Jesus didn't actually die on the cross, but rather escaped
and sired a family (the Merovingians) with-guess who- Mary Magdelan! Holy
Smokes, Peyton Place had nothing on those ribald Jesus Freaks of AD33!
Here's a blurb from the publisher's web site .
BEHIND THE BIBLE FRAUD -
What was the Church trying to hide?
Recent TV and radio programs on the Holy Blood Holy Grail
by Michael Baigent and The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown have caused outbursts
from parties of various faiths. An article from New Dawn Magazine by Roberts
Adams about The Bible Fraud was recently posted on Rense.com and it attracted
similar responses. To read more, click here
Anyway, whenever you see a book endorsement by such "Illuminaires"
as JZ Knight, the Ramptha 'enlightenment' guru, watch out!...Ken]

What Was the Church Trying To Hide?
"How well we know what a profitable superstition
this fable of Christ has been for us."
-- Pope Leo X (1513-1521)
When I first spoke to a close Christian friend of mine about
the publishing of Tony Bushby's "The Bible Fraud," her reaction
was one that many Christians have expressed, and one that made me aghast.
She didn't want the book available because it would "persuade them
away from the Bible and the word of God."
Further discussions with her and many other Christians around
the world about The Bible Fraud all result in the Bible being quoted as
the ultimate reference for the apparent "words of God," and therefore
the basis for their arguments. The problem lies in that they believe the
Bible is infallible.
If we examine the oldest known Bible to date, the "Sinai
Bible" housed in the British Museum (I believe that, during his many
years of research, Tony had a private viewing of this priceless book), we
find a staggering 14,800 differences from today's Bible and yet it still
remains the word of God?
As Tony points out, the history of our 'genuine' Bibles is
a convoluted one.
Firstly we cannot be sure that we have the full version as
it was originally intended.
In 1415 the Church of Rome took an extraordinary step to destroy
all knowledge of two second century Jewish books that it said contained
the true name of Jesus Christ.
The Antipope Benedict XIII firstly singled out for condemnation
a secret Latin treatise called "Mar Yesu" and then issued instructions
to destroy all copies of the book of Elxai. The Rabbinic fraternity once
held the destroyed manuscripts with great reverence for they were comprehensive
original records reporting the life of Rabbi Jesus.
Later, Pope Alexander VI ordered all copies of the Talmud
destroyed, with the Spanish Grand Inquisitor Tomas de Torquemada (1420-98)
responsible for the elimination of 6,000 volumes at Salamanca alone.
Solomon Romano (1554) also burnt many thousands of Hebrew
scrolls and, in 1559, every Hebrew book in the city of Prague was confiscated.
The mass destruction of Jewish books included hundreds of copies of the
Old Testament and caused the irretrievable loss of many original handwritten
The oldest text of the Old Testament that survived, before
the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls" was said to be the Bodleian
Codex (Oxford), which was dated to circa 1100 AD.
In an attempt by the church to remove damaging Rabbinic information
about Jesus Christ from the face of the earth, the Inquisition burnt 12,000
volumes of the Talmud.
In 1607, forty-seven men (some records say fifty four) took
two years and nine months to re-write the Bible and make it ready for press.
It was, by the order of King James, issued with a set of personal 'rules'
the translators were to follow.
Upon its completion in 1609, it was handed over to the King
James for his final approval. However, "It was self evident that James
was not competent to check their work and edit it, so he passed the manuscripts
onto the greatest genius of all time... Sir Francis Bacon"
The first English language manuscripts of the Bible remained
in Bacon's possession for nearly a year. During that time ... "he hammered
the various styles of the translators into the unity, rhythm, and music
of Shakespearean prose, wrote the prefaces and created the whole scheme
of the Authorized Version.
At the completion of the editing, King James ordered a 'dedication
to the King' to be drawn up and included in the opening pages. He also wanted
the phrase 'Appointed to be read in the churches' to appear on the title
The King James Bible is considered by many today to be the
'original' Bible and therefore 'genuine' and all later revisions simply
counterfeits forged by 'higher critics'. Others think the King James Bible
is 'authentic' and 'authorized' and presents the original words of the authors
as translated into English from the 'original' Greek texts.
However, as Tony points out, the 'original' Greek text was
not written until around the mid fourth century and was a revised edition
of writings compiled decades earlier in Aramaic and Hebrew. Those earlier
documents no longer exist and the Bibles we have today are five linguistic
removes from the first bibles written. What was written in the 'original
originals' is quite unknown. It is important to remember that the words
'authorized' and 'original', as applied to the Bible do not mean 'genuine',
'authentic' or 'true'.
By the early third century, it became well noted that a problem
was occurring . politics! In 251AD, the number of Presbyter's (roving orator
or priest) writings had increased dramatically and bitter arguments raged
between opposing factions about their conflicting stories.
According to Presbyter Albius Theodoret (circa 255), there
were "more than two hundred" variant gospels in use in his time.
In 313, groups of Presbyters and Biscops (Bishops) violently clashed over
the variations in their writings and "altar was set against altar"
in competing for an audience and territory.
When Emperor Constantine conquered the East in 324, he sent
his Spanish religious advisor, Osius of Cordoba, to Alexandria with letters
to several Biscops exhorting them to make peace among their own.
But the mission failed and Constantine, probably at the suggestions
of Osius, then issued a decree commanding all Presbyters and their subordinates
"be mounted on asses, mules and horses belonging to the public and
travel to the city of Nicaea" in the Roman province of Bithymia, the
country of Asia. The Presbyters were instructed by the Emperor to bring
with them the manuscripts from which they orated to the rabble (that's us!)
"wrapped and bound in leather".
Constantine saw in this developing system of belief the opportunity
to make a combined state religion and protect it by law. The first general
church council was thus convened and the year was 325.
On 21 June, the day of the Summer Solstice, (and under those
cult conditions) a total of 2048 "presbyters, deacons, sub-deacons,
acolytes and exorcists" gathered at Nicaea to decide what Christianity
really was, what it would be, what writings were to be used and who was
to be it's God.
Ancient church evidence established that a new 'god' was to
be approved by the Roman Emperor and an earlier attempt (circa 210) to deify
either Judas Khrestus or his twin brother Rabbi Jesus (or somebody else)
had been 'declined'. Therefore, as late as 325, the Christian religion did
not have an official god.
After a long and bitter debate, a vote was finally taken and
it was with a majority show of hands that Judas Khrestus and Rabbi Jesus
both became God (161 votes for and 157 votes against).
The Emperor effectively joined elements of the two individual
life stories of the twin brothers into a singular creation. The doctrine
of the Celtic / British church of the west was democratically attached to
the Presbyters stories of the east.
A deification ceremony was then performed 'Apotheosis'. Thus
the deified ones were then called 'saviours' and looked upon as gods. Temples,
altars, and images with attributes of divinity were then erected and public
holidays proclaimed on their birthdays.
Following the original example set by the deification of Caesar,
their funerals were dramatized as the scene of their resurrection and immortality.
All these godly attributes passed as a legal right to Emperor Constantine's
new deity, Jesus Christ.
The Emperor then instructed Bishop Eusebius to compile a uniform
collection of new writings "bound together as one" using the stories
from the large collection of Presbyters as his reference source. Eusebius
was to arrange for the production of "fifty sumptuous copies ... to
be written on parchment in a legible manner, and in a convenient portable
form, by professional scribes thoroughly accomplished in the art".
This was the first mention of finished copies of a Christian 'New Testament'
in the history of mankind.
As one can imagine, to condense the real life of the Jesus
Christ, the Church and His teachings with supporting evidence into a short
article is very difficult. It is therefore wise for those who wish to have
supportable evidence to read and study Tony Bushby's epic work, The Bible
Fraud, along with it's detailed blood lines (family trees) and over 869
references. (see www.thebiblefraud.com)
However, attempting to summarize what Tony has written.....
in 325 AD, the first Christian council was called at Nicaea to bring the
stories of twin brothers, Jesus 'the Rabbi' and Judas Khrestus into one
deity that we now know as Jesus Christ.
Tony says they were not born of virgin birth but to Nabatean
Arab Mariamne Herod (now known as the Virgin Mary) and fathered by Tiberius
ben Panthera, a Roman Centurion. The brothers were raised in the Essene
community and became Khrists of their faith.
Rabbi Jesus later was initiated in Egypt at the highest of
levels similar to the 33rd degree of Freemasonry of which many Prime ministers
and Presidents around the world today are members. He then later married
three wives, one of whom we know as a Mary Magdalene, a Druidic Princess,
stole the Torah from the temple and moved to Lud, now London.
Tony believes the reason Jesus stole the Torah was that he
said it contained "a very special secret", which he was going
to reveal that secret to the world. He was stoned to death and the Torah
taken from him before he could.
The elder brother, Judas Khrestus, with his "Khrestian"
followers conspired to take the throne of Rome, his royal birthright, and
was captured, tried, and was sentenced to be crucified.
The "Khrestians" and the Essenic army, the Nazarenes,
would today be likened to terrorists. At the trial, Judas exercised his
royal birthright to have a replacement in Simon of Cyrene (Luke 23:41) and
then was sold as a slave to live out his days as a carpenter in India.
Rabbi Jesus spent a considerable amount of time at the Palace
of the British in Rome and sometime around 48 AD, he left for Egypt to pursue
his greatest esoteric goal.
The spiritual knowledge from his secret education in the Essene
and Druid movements was soon to be elevated to the highest level possible
- initiation into the innermost rite of the Egyptian temples.
It was probable that Rabbi Jesus' earlier initiation into
both the Essene and Druid schools played a major part in his acceptance
into the Egyptian school.
The Druids could claim a very early origin and the essence
of their wisdom was also that of the Essenes. In the case of the Essenes,
it is possible to show that their movement was specifically established
to preserve secret information, for they knew and used the sacred writing
of the Initiates.
The full meaning of the point being made by Bushby is that
in the case of all Secret Schools, the inner and ultimate Mystery was revealed
only to a High Initiate.
Those who were initiated into the Ancient mysteries took a
solemn oath never to reveal what had passed within the sacred walls. Every
year only a comparatively few Egyptian initiations were conducted, and the
number of persons who knew their secrets was never at any time large.
The initiations always took place with the onset of darkness
and the candidate was entranced for periods of varying length, depending
upon the level of the degree for which he had entered.
The first initiatory step involved a forty-day procedure that
basically involved purification, not only in physical form, but dissolving
all tendencies to evil thoughts, purifying the mind as well. It appears
that he would have fasted, alternatively on vegetables, juices and very
special herbal concoctions.
The New Testament recorded that this happened to Rabbi Jesus
who "was led into the desert.... and he fasted forty days and forty
nights" (Matt. 4:1-2).
This trial period involved more than just fasting. During
the forty days and nights' ordeal, Tony says the candidate was required
to study astronomical charts to supplement his skills in astronomy and memorize
charts of the heavens. They were also given a particular ritual from which
to memorize certain passwords, secret signs and handclasps, skills that
are still practiced to this day in Freemasonry.
These initiations were not limited to Egypt. The ancient civilizations
inherited these Mysteries from a remote antiquity and they constituted part
of a primitive revelation from the gods to the human race. Almost every
people of pre-Christian times possessed its institution and tradition of
The Romans, the Druids of Britain, the Greeks, the Cretans,
the Syrians, the Hindus, the Persians, the Maya and the American Indians,
among others, had corresponding temples and rites with a system of graduated
illuminations for the initiates.
The modern world knows little of these ancient rites yet they
were conducted in a huge variety of buildings the world over.
The 'Towers' that are found throughout the East in Asia were
directly connected with the Mystery-initiations. The candidates for initiation
were placed in them for three days and three nights, whenever there was
no temple with a subterranean crypt close at hand.
In this aspect of the initiatory procedure, Tony points out
a direct Gospel parallel with Rabbi Jesus saying, "After three days
I shall rise again", for he knew the finishing process he was to undertake
would take three days being a symbol of the period of time required to complete
a condition of development. The ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic texts speak
of an initiate as 'twice-born', and he was permitted to add to his name
the words 'he who has renewed his life', so that on some ancient tomb-inscriptions
archaeologists still discover these phases descriptive of the spiritual
status of the deceased person.
So little did the later Gospel writers understand the initiatory
process that they never perceived they were developing a story that included
a Rabbi's (and Arch Druid of Britain) experience in an Egyptian Mystery
St Austin (c. 380) asserted that it was generally known in
church circles that Rabbi Jesus had been initiated in Egypt, and that "he
wrote books concerning magic". In the Gospel of Nicodemus, the Jews
brought the same accusation before Pontius Pilate, "Did we not tell
you he was a magician?"
Celsus (c. 178) spoke of the same charge. In the Clementine
Recognitions, the accusation was brought against Rabbi Jesus that he did
not perform any miracles but practiced magic and carried about with him
the figure of a seated skeleton.
Jewish tradition invariably asserted that Rabbi Jesus learned
'magic' in Egypt. Bushby says the kernel of this persistent accusation may
perhaps be reduced to the simple historical element that Rabbi Jesus went
to Egypt and returned with far wider and more enlightened views than those
of his former religious associates.
Now, I'm sure that many of you are having trouble grasping
some of the ideas presented in this article and I congratulate you on taking
the effort to read this far.
We all need to demand our local Church, the Church scholars,
theologians and media make an open examination of the evidence compiled
in Tony Bushby's "The Bible Fraud."
It may rattle some core beliefs but what is more important
to you . the truth or what sits comfortably because it's what you've known
all you life?
I leave you with a quote from one of the conspirators
"How well we know what a profitable superstition this
fable of Christ has been for us." Pope Leo X (1513-1521)
