The authorised version of the origins of Christianity, and of the content of Jesus' teaching is the result of political wrangling in the early Church. The emergence of the Dead Sea Scrolls, carefully kept quiet, has opened Pandora's Box, and has shown how much dogma and censorship there is in the Church. Jesus and the Essenes gives a detailed account of Jesus as a person, of his acts as they were, and of the daily realities of Israel of that time. The Qumran Essene community has become the focus of ideas about the connection of Jesus' teachings to earlier traditions, of an international and gnostic flavour. 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 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, through a person who has accessed far memory, through regression into a former life. This information is candid and for real, even about Dead Sea files, and many Biblical images and statements are corrected and added to. This book marks the beginning of a new revelation of the life and work of Jesus, a person who has had a larger role than many in the building of our modern world.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
