The Templar Revelation
by Lynn Picknett, Clive Prince

THE MOST CLOSELY GUARDED SECRET OF THE WESTERN WORLD IS ABOUT TO BE REVEALED -- AND YOU WILL NEVER SEE CHRISTIANITY IN THE SAME LIGHT AGAIN.

In a remarkable achievement of historical detective work that is destined to become a classic, authors Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince delve into the mysterious world of the Freemasons, the Cathars, the Knights Templar, and the occult to discover the truth behind an underground religion with roots in the first century that survives even today.

Chronicling their fascinating quest for truth through time and space, the authors reveal an astonishing new view of the real motives and character of the founder of Christianity, as well as the actual historical -- and revelatory -- roles of John the Baptist and Mary Magdalene. Painstakingly researched and thoroughly documented, The Templar Revelation presents a secret history, preserved through the centuries but encoded in works of art and even in the great Gothic cathedrals of Europe, whose final chapter could shatter the foundation of the Christian Church.

LYNN PICKNETT and CLIVE PRINCE are writers, researchers, and lecturers on the paranormal, the occult, and historical and religious mysteries. They are the authors of Turin Shroud: In Whose Image? Picknett and Prince live in London, England.

Excerpt:
Page 144:
The Levitikon, which had been translated from Latin into Greek, consists of two parts. The first contains the religious doctrines that are to be given to the initiate, including rituals concerning the nine grades of the Templar Order. It describes the Templars' 'Church of John' and explains the fact that they called themselves "Johannites' or 'original Christians'.

The second part is like the standard John's Gospel except for some significant omissions. Chapters 20 and 21 are missing, the last two of the Gospel. It also eliminates all hint of the miraculous from the stories of the turning of the water into wine, the loaves and fishes, and the raising of Lazarus. and certain references to St. Peter are edited out, including the story of Jesus saying 'Upon this rock I will build my church'.

But if this is puzzling, the Levitikon also contains surprising, even shocking material: Jesus is presented as having been an initiate of the mysteries of Osiris, the major Egyptian god of his day.

Page 249:
Many commentators have pointed out that the complete silence on the part of the New Testament about Jesus' marital status is very odd. Chroniclers of his time and place routinely described people in terms of what made them different from others - and for a man of over thirty not to have been married would have been virtually unique. It must be remembered that we rely on the picture of Jesus that was painted by the Gospel writers and their sources; their perspective was essentially Jewish. The Jews regarded celibacy as improper, for it suggested an unwillingness to father the next generation of the Lord's chosen people and was a matter for rebuke from the elders of the synagogue. Some second-century rabbis, according to Geza Vermes, 'compare deliberate abstention from procreation to murder.'

This INCREDIBLE book has a 15 page index! The multi-faceted subjects covered are varied, well researched and fascinating! This is a MUST READ. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
