Many of us love stories, me included. Recently on the forum I was discussing a story that I know that is an alternative to the recognised Jesus story. So this morning I have decided to share it with all you story lovers. I was told a small part of this story by a friend who was a monk of the order of St John of Jerusalem and then I filled in the blanks.
As the other story that exists about this man, I cannot confirm this one is true and to me, it is nothing more than a story, as in truth, the other story only is.
I have kept this as brief as possible, as you could easily write a book on this subject and I haven’t even finished the first one yet, but who knows!
A little over two thousand years ago a ruling set of tribes (12 in all) where having problems with the worship of many gods carrying on from the Egyptian dynasties they had descended from. A civil war had ravaged Egypt and the ruling families had to flee across the water to a place called Lios, occupying the northern part of this land, but the problem of worship of many gods had followed them and was also already present in their new home. The problem was that each faith had differences between them which caused rivalry and division and made the law impossible to enforce. Fast losing patience the families had to construct something that would outlaw the many gods and bring all worshippers under one umbrella a kind of interfaith so to speak, monotheism.
As hard as they tried they could not enforce this and they knew there were always going to be far less controllers than there were controlled, it was simple common sense. The families already had the Roman armies on their pay roll for security and they had already recruited the Jewish sects as accountants and bankers as temple taxation was already under way. Even with the Roman legions they were still outnumbered by at least 400-1 and havoc reigned even though crimes were being punished harshly and cruelly, but this made no difference, the multi god syndrome was still at play and was proving very difficult to bring under control. The main reason they wanted control was to apply the taxation, but on the back bone of this create a class division system that would ensure the cogs of the commercial construct (taxation) they wanted to introduce would always turn and they remained at the top of the pile.
One ruling family elder had a son named Jesus. Jesus was a bright intelligent diligent student who was particularly bright when it came to the matters of politics and was a keen student when it came to history. He studied a pharaoh called Akhenaten and what he was accused of, which in effect, had caused the civil war to rage.
Akhenaten was accused of sun worship and accused of bringing into existence monotheism (the worship of one god) the peoples of Egypt rose against him according to historical accounts, because they were still convinced there were multiple gods. But because Jesus was of the ruling families he had access to another set of records that contained a different version of events.
This record proclaimed that Akhenaten had told the truth regarding any gods, that it was all for control purposes and no gods actually existed and never had. He proclaimed that a ball of energy like the sun was in us and that was the true us that powered the bodies we were trapped in. He also proclaimed that temples were not needed and nor was any form of worship or obedience to a god or its servants, because the temples, the servants of the god were in fact acting as god so they could maintain their positions – it was simply based on lies. The families had already put the temple above the pharaoh and the records had recorded this. But the word monotheism stayed with Jesus and the fact the temple was actually god. Not feeling these records were relevant or of any significance, none of the other family members had ever taken notice of them.
For months Jesus contemplated what he had read and started to see how this could be used as a ultimate system of control and what’s more it would net the controllers of this system everything, or so he made everyone believe he had. A meeting was called between the elder males of the families and their oldest sons on Jesus’ request and they all met. That day Jesus was to give a corporate sales pitch like none before, because he could see a system, a simple system based on what he had read and a book by the name of the book of the dead he had studied, but he kept very crucial part out deliberately, that you will discover later. He stood before the families and on that eve what we all live in now was created a commercial construct run by corporations. This is what he suggested.
We will start a rumour, create a story that says there is only one god and he has a set of rules you have to obey. To do this we will make this law and we will enforce it. But these laws only apply to them (of lower status) and not too us. We will have our own set for us alone and to use as enticement (privileges) to get those we need too, do what is needed to be done. This structure is called hierarchy and the all we maintain the few.
Once we have done this we can create more laws based on taxation and enforce them with harsh consequences. We will create a book of our own and list what must be done and adhered too and this is where the story comes in.
The story shall say I, Jesus, had 12 followers called disciples and only 12, because those of the numbers will recognise the significance of this. The story shall say I will go against you and the temple and pronounce you wrong in your doings and the disciples will tell my words of the same. The story will be full of words that I say that are moral and good but with a twist the most powerful twist, that will be known to us as the myth of Jesus Christ the king of kings. We shall add a character called god into this and call him the farther, not just mine, but everyone’s and you must do as I say to reach his house which we will call heaven. A place of perfection that you will return too when you leave this earthly plane.
This story will say that I am against the temple and through my teachings I will turn everyone against it. Then one of the disciples will turn against me and you will arrest me, try me, convict me and crucify me upon a cross. From the cross I will be taken to a cave where in three days time I will come back to life and the temple will fall at my feet because of this and because of miracles we will tell them I performed that are nothing more than illusions. I shall walk on water, turn water into wine, feed 5 thousand and we shall say I was born of a virgin who we shall call Mary.
The temple will claim I died for mankind’s sins and thus we have created a means by which we can do as we please as someone has already paid the price. The image of me on a cross shall be present in every temple for those worshipers to fall at their knees too, to ask forgiveness and for help and they will accept my word and the word of my servants (the temple) over and above everything and never will they question. We shall use dead speak (corporation) to hide our intentions and a language called the language of the shadows, because everything we do and say shall have dual meaning, one meaning to them (the unworthy) and one to us that they shall not know of. The corporate hierarchal structure will infect everything and we shall receive the profits of this (taxation). We shall own all land and all those who dwell upon it and they will serve us, they will have no choice as they fear us and the words we say. Let this be the template. later we shall tell them that I will return when what we have created starts to turn upon itself, because in time it will because it is based upon a lie. Then we can move to reassert ourselves through law, because we shall own the word and all it can deliver to benefit us. We must own all words and there meanings and change them at will to suit our needs and tell them that when I return the temple, my servants, shall be rewarded for their service.
It will be proclaimed, by he who says he is I (as the king of kings) that I have returned to save humanity and all will fall at my feet and fall to my law which will be the law they already know and adhere too. By this happening you will then truly rule the world.
Note; please understand this is a very brief version.
The families had listened and to be honest liked what they had listened too, but wanted to know what was in for Jesus who told them that he just required his name to go down in history as a messiah and that was payment enough along with all the riches he could wish for and a new life in a new land. The families agreed all accept one man sat there, who was Jesus’ brother, a man by the name of John.
John, although he was a member of the ruling families, was horrified by what he heard and fully realised the implications of what Jesus was suggesting, even if no one else did, possibly not even Jesus. He realised that this system could enslave all of humanity in time based on a lie and in the end bring humanity to the verge of self destruction.
John was a gentle man who was for ever getting in trouble with the temple and not only his own family, but the other eleven as well. He did not want long hair as he had to wear it, because he preferred short hair, long hair just wasn’t him. He wanted to be with a servant girl and was beaten at times because he would not stop seeing her and in the end she disappeared, breaking his heart. Many were brought to him of equal, but none were her.
Only days after the meeting John cut hair short and acquired work man’s clothes from friends, because John’s friends were those who truly worked, even though both John and his workmen friends kept this their friendship very secret. Gathering a few things and some food John left his home and then the city and started walking south working on building sites and learning the trades. No one came looking for him, to be honest they were glad to be rid of him, even his own mother and farther.
Five years passed and Jesus’ plan was working, but the rumour hadn’t quite taken off as first expected and there were those already offering political disagreements that added to the problem. Those that lived where the story was based called it a lie and said no such occurrence had ever taken place. A war was waged against them to hush them and they were massacred. There were rumours spreading of a man who tells of what really is going on and how it come about and by whom. This was causing talk of revolution, the law and politics within the church was being questioned, as taxation was being increased all the time. They were under attack from all sides.
John by now was nearly as far south as he could be and had been working for those five years and had picked up quite a few skills, carpentry being one of them. He also had quite a following because of a story he was telling, the story of what really was happening and how he knew.
Jesus was summoned and arrived in Lios incognito and met with the rest of the families. After being told what was happening Jesus and the families realised that they needed to find this man, for obvious reasons and two templar were dispatched to find him. This didn’t take long as everyone seemed to know his name and where he was heading and the story he had told. Jesus and the families did not want the man killed when he was found, so the templar were told only to find out who he was and where he could be found.
After reporting back with the information desired, Jesus’ left with an escort of Romans soldiers and templar to arrest his own brother, who he had now worked out could be the only man doing this – to have the knowledge of what had been said it that meeting and also the templar had reported back it was in fact John who they sort.
They found John on a building site surrounded by hundreds who were listening as he rested and talked of what he had been witness too and the fact that all they claimed was nothing more than a lie. This building site was across a bay from a hill surrounded by trees where John would rest his head at the end of the day, where he had a small shelter he had built for himself hundreds surrounded him on this hill side and stayed there listening to his words. John spoke of not only what happened in the meeting, but the fact that life could be so different and they listened.
Jesus decided not to try and arrest John until he had more soldiers to help quell any insurrection that would probably occur if they did try. He realised his cousin had a massive following that stretched the length of the land. Jesus sent word that he needed as many soldiers as could be spared and told of the reason why he needed them. They were dispatched.
Weeks later they arrived and camped some miles from the hillside and a meeting was held between Jesus, the templar and the commanders of the Roman legions. They decided that they would wait until John was asleep in his shelter upon the hillside after working all day before they would attempt his arrest. With everyone asleep they would have the element of surprise and there would be no chance John could escape. A templar scout was sent out and reported back that all but a few were asleep and the opportune moment would be now. They set off leaving enough time in hand so they would get to the hillside just before dawn still cloaked by the darkness. When they arrived they met with a small amount of resistance, which was easily quashed, which took place at the foot of the hillside.
When they arrived at the top of the hillside where John’s shelter was, John and many others were already awake after hearing the commotion at the foot of the hill. John realised what was happening as he heard the armour they were wearing and had told everyone not to offer any resistance at all, only to remember what they witnessed this day.
John offered no resistance and was soon surrounded by the templar and roman soldiers. The 200 approx on the hillside were outnumbered 5-1 by soldiers and templar’s who had come for a fight, not one of John’s companions were armed and the majority were women and children.
John stood alone in the centre of all of this and a hooded man approached him, stopping in front of him head down. The hooded man lifted his head and lowered his hood and revealed that he was John’s brother Jesus. Silent gasps could be heard as all that stood there, that had listened to John, realised everything he had said was true and Jesus did not in fact die upon a cross, in some far off land, as he stood before them now. John could tell many wanted to voice objection and shout liar with all their might, but John asked them not too.
John was arrested and clamped in irons and was escorted from the hill side and as he was taken tears feel from his eyes, as he realised what was to become of all those who stayed with him there. As they left that hillside the soldiers and the templar attacked and all upon the hill side, were massacred. Those in the surrounding towns and villages were also placed under guard as Jesus and the templar had brought thousands of Roman soldiers with them. The bodies upon the hillside where then collected up, the bodies of men, women and children, collected and heaped. Wood was brought from the forests and large pyre’s where built and also a large cross from oak.
John was taken to the encampment and was questioned and tortured, so he would agree to fall at Jesus’ feet and then tell everyone he had lied and that the story of Jesus Christ was true and he had been mistaken. Jesus knew if John did this and he was proven to be a liar they would regain the control and the original story about him would in fact work. But John refused and said nothing.
John knew he was going to die and was becoming weaker as the pain he was enduring became intolerable and spoke. looking straight at Jesus he said ‘what you are about to create will be the death of you, as you will not be able to bear the burden of it when you realise what you have created. You will one day tell the truth of what has happened here, even though it will bring about your demise. I am sadden for you brother, because all you will do and all you will create and all that is created from it will end, when the one who bears the mark is here.’
Jesus asked about the mark, but john would not answer and Jesus became angry and took a sword from one of the guards nearby and brandished it near Johns face – still he would not speak. Pushing the sword tip into one of the many wounds his body was covered with John grimaced and let a cry of pain and as this subsided he spoke what would be his last words.
‘The mark that he will carry, will be the mark of the ‘burning cross’ and he will undo all that will be created from what you have done and how do I know this, because I read more than you did brother and one day they will find out this wasn’t your idea, it was an idea you stole. Upon that hillside where I slept, a cross will burn.’
On hearing this Jesus lashed out in temper at John with the sword and lashed out four times and as he stood back covered in his own brothers blood, John’s head lay before his body, lay before where he was kneeling, severed. Jesus stood just looking at what he had done thinking how he could use this to his best advantage. What he had just done could cause a backlash as John’s followers could quite easily revolt against the temple and the families and they had nowhere near enough soldiers to stop this, but he had a answer and called for the army physician. He told the physician to sew the head back on the best he could and then the body of John was taken to the hillside and put upon the cross and the cross was erected.
At dawn all were taken from the towns and villages and marched to the hillside to see John’s body crucified upon the cross and Jesus spoke to them.
‘Now you have a crucifixion and bear witness to it and know this, whoever of you deny the story of Jesus Christ, then this will happen to you and if you forget, then turn to the temple and you will see this image so you remember. Let this image serve as a threat, that if you do not obey us and accept our words as truth, then this will be your fate, or worse.’
A guard was set and on that eve the pyre’s where lit so all could see the silhouette of John on the cross. The fires raged for 3 days and no one attempted to go near the cross to recover John’s body and the guard became slack, bored with standing there. On the forth evening the guards were overcome by a few who had bore witness to what had happened. Wood was stacked high at the foot of the cross and it was lit, but before this his head was removed.
Jesus was alerted by a guard that the cross on that hill in Lios was alight and burning well and could be seen for miles around, also he was told that 2 templar had gone missing and they were the ones who had been sent to find John. Also the head of John was also not upon the body and could not be found.
That was last anyone ever saw of Jesus until a story was told that a man claiming to be Jesus Christ turned up Londinium many many years later trying to tell a story of how in fact he was the creator of Christianity and that it was created to enslave humanity and that it was based on lies. He was arrested by the authorities and put to death for blasphemy.
In his later years Jesus suffered because of what his brother had told him and the fact that the cross on that hill had burnt, which was lit by two templar, who witnessed what Jesus did to his own brother and had listened to what John had said – the two templar sent to find him.
Just over 900 years later the templar would be disbanded because of this story, because those two knights told the truth of what they had seen on that hill side in Cornwall and the truth of Christianity. One side remained loyal to the church and those who knew the truth went to ground taking all the templar wealth with them, their sole objective to never allow the truth of that day and the real truth of Christianity to be forgotten. But that is another story for another time.
The hillside was later named the mount by the Cornish people, where John was mounted on a cross. The catholic church soon changed this to St Michaels mount in around 500ad after two fisherman claimed St Michael appeared to them from upon the mount, but the Cornish people still just call her the mount and many of them, I am sure, don’t know why they do.
It is said that a family of templar’s emanating from Cornwall have handed down this story and others like it for centuries which was to make sure they were never forgotten, because one day it will be needed. Because this story is not about hocus pocus and events that are not possible by any stretch of the imagination, this is simply about telling the truth about what happened on the top of that hill and why it happened, but again, that is another story for another time.
Please remember this is just a story like the other version is, a story of who was involved and what they did and why and of course what we landed up with because of it!
