Book Description

1 Dec 2000
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.

By Iona Main Stewart TOP 500 REVIEWER
Initially, I found this book less readable than the sequel "They walked with Jesus", but as I progressed the book became more and more readable and in fact fascinating.

Dolores regresses her subject, Katie, back to a life as an Essene, Suddi, at a time that proved to be contemporary with Jesus, though Suddi was born some years before Jesus. She talks to Suddi at different periods of his life, from the age of 12 to subsequent to his death when he was over sixty.

Suddi lives in the community of the Essenes at Qumran. At first, he describes his occupation as studying the laws of the Torah (the Jewish religious book) and Hebrew law, but later he teaches. The Essenes adhere strictly to the "law" (the laws of Moses) and the Torah.

The community obtains its water from two fountains. They have a complex water system within the community including two baths. They have two types of lights, one containing oil, which is lit, but also lights with no flame. These apparently contain dry cell batteries and work by means of a sort of electricity!

The Essenes are an advanced and liberal community. For instance, the members of the community are not obliged to stay there but can leave if so desired. They do not believe in blood sacrifices, and women are regarded as being on a par with men and entitled to the same education. The Essenes compile astrological charts to determine, for instance, whether persons are suitable for each other with regard to matrimony. They do not condone slavery, but some choose to do menial work for a time as an act of penance.

The community houses a library comprising a vast collection of scrolls in numerous languages. The library also contains a model of the solar system (orrery) that moves constantly.

5.0 out of 5 stars A deeply inspiring read 16 Aug 2009
If you have ever had doubts about the message that is generally presented about what Christ actually said and meant all those years ago as he engaged in his ministry, then read this book for a different perspective. It also gives a very comprehensive look into the lives of the Essenes, a religious group who seem to have been conveniently written out of the bible. Not only were they an important group, but it was with them that Jesus and John the Baptist did most of their early schooling, some of which is described in the book.
And if you are concerned about past life regression (particularly as a christian) and the obvious connotations with reincarnation, then bear in mind that Christianity only changed its view on this around 500 AD as it suited them not to believe in reincarnation any more.
Read this with an open mind. If you are seeking an understanding of how to be in closer syncronisity with God, then read this book. Think carefully on what it has to say. If you want further reading, read 'The Essenes - Children of the light' by Stuart Wilson and Joanna Prentis. This adds strong validity to all that is said in this book.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A very good introduction to Dolores Cannon's work. Easy to read. Suitable for all, irrespective of religious belief (or none). Best read with an open mind (blinkers removed). Start at the beginning and read right through to the end. Some people might have some of their long held beliefs challenged. Others may start to question and review their own personal beliefs. No bad thing in this day and age. This book gives an insight into the life and times of the Essene community, many aspects of which have yet to be uncovered by archaeological and historical investigation. Hopefully, in time, Dolores Cannon's work will be accepted as yet another strand of evidence in the search for the truth.

5.0 out of 5 stars An interesting truth!? 14 Nov 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've always had doubts about the conventional religious view of Jesus and his ministry. This book gives an alternative view that rings true to me. Found it very interesting and quite exciting! Maybe this is the time for the real story to emerge at this particular time in history. Well worth reading if you find that a rigid 'religious' view is not for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars I won`t tell you too much but.... 12 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Another great collection from the catologue of regression. If you you have read Dolores Cannon, then you`ll be ready for this. It is fasinating to get this incredible `inside information` from those around the time of Christ and those who knew his family and comunity. It is of imense historical value to learn about the structure of Mary`s roots too, her background and why Jesus was educated in the way he was. We are taught he is God, He will say we all are! This indepth look at his life-setting really gives an understanding into why things happened the way they did and what kind of a person he was, because he was a man like any other. It also bears witness to the wisdom of the ancients as there were some very special teachers dotted around the globe that had a hand in shaping the man. Whatever your religious beliefs, this is a factual historical record and another moving illustration of someone special in the history of our planet. I would read the same of any great religious teacher, but as Christ never meant to start a religion, he comes out top for me!-Enjoy!

By Tando
My advice is to buy this book and then buy "They walked with Jesus," by the same author. Both are like pure gold to me, and i am not a church goer, or a born again evangelist. I bought this because i am curious about Jesus,and somewhat dubious of the Bible's accuracy, and i wanted to learn more about him as a man and a healer, to hear more of his words and his true life,and these two books are fabulous in their detail and,in my opinion,in their authenticity.I am a natural sceptic but Dolores Cannon is an incredible woman and the work she has done and the books she has written about past life therapy are essential reading for our time. The Bible story of Jesus is not complete and so if you want to know more, then buy this book.I just wish she would write another on the subject if there is more material to be written. I would give this 100 stars if i could. Just be aware that it begins with an account of the Essene community first, and then moves on to the part they played in the life of Jesus. But there was a reason for Dolores doing that, and in my opinion it enriches all that follows.
