HERE is a book review - posted on this site to prove that anything, once again, to do with Rennes is rubbish. But look at the last few lines of the review. It says - 'Regarding Saunière and the treasure of Rennes-le-Château he has nothing new to say. He tries to impress us with material about the Merovingians and the Priory of Sion, but these are obviously things that he only knows about at second or third hand. As for his theory about Jesus, I won't even bother to discuss it here, so implausible is it. Personally I prefer the works of Robert Ambelain who, at least, knows what he is talking about'.
Have you read the work of Robert Ambelain? Did he really know what he was talking about? And seeing as the comment of the reviewer is related to the theory of Jesus - here is Ambelain's theory about Jesus, to which the reviewer of Holy Blood Holy Grail presumably concurs with:
1. Jesus was a Zealot leader, opposing Roman occupation, after his father, Judas the Galilean or Judas of Gamala, the leader of the 6 a.D rebellion against the Romans, had died. Jesus was of royal ascent, belonging to the line of David, and fought for the leadership of Israel.
2. Jesus would have been born around 17 or 16 b.C and was crucified around 33 or 34, when he was aged around 50.
3. Both the Cathars and the Templars knew this, and that has caused their dismay.
4. The Templars, in particular, didn’t worship the cross nor Jesus Christ and apparently some confessions were obtained under torture, but their neophytes were to refuse the common Christian beliefs and pious practices. With the passing of time this refusal of the Templars to worship Christ would have turned them into simple monotheism, and they tried to unify Christians, Jews, and Muslims'.
The whole thing though still smacks of a 'secret pertaining to Jesus that the Cathars and Templars knew ....' - which, for some, is the basis of the story at Rennes .....
Another observer wrote:
' [Ambelain] who left our world in 1997, was a master of some great masonic lodges and occult orders. He wrote dozens of books on different topics. Fluent in ancient hebrew, greek, latin, aramean, and copt languages (maybe more...) he translated a lot of gospels related texts. He found that the historical Jesus really existed, but in a way nobody could figure out. His theory is that he [Jesus] was the son of Judas de Gamala, a revolutionary of royal blood who led a hebrew campain in -33 to knock down roman domination in Judah.His studies use the direct copt, aramean an hebrew texts and translations, with the numerous french studies made on his life, to make a light on the numerous contradictions of the texts.
Here are some ideas translated from the book;
For Ambelain, the historical Jesus is not the same as the Aeon Christ concept present in every religion (called Yeshouah in hebraic Kabalah). He still keeps the concept of an initiate, but one who used his knowledge for his own goals. The after-Jesus christians of the 2nd to the 10th centuries modified the Gospel texts to meet the needs of a religion dogma.
The genealogy of Jesus is different in every gospel.
It is true that Nazareth never existed before the 7th century, created to meet the needs of increasing travellers in holy land.
Thomas Didyme is supposed to be his twin brother (from the older manuscripts...) All his life, Jesus disowned his mother who disagreed with him. Mary did have other children (luke 2,7)
The Zealots were an activist faction of the Essenes.
This Jesus took revenge for the death is his father by creating a group of rebels with the goal to reinstall a king on the hebrew throne.
Joseph is a late add to the story (to hide his criminal side), as a lot of the stuff in it... The Jerusalem ass and palms was a set-up easily feasible to fit the Isaie predictions and gain popular support. When he says: go find a fish, you will find a dime in his mouth, its is applicable in the context where the custom is to put a coin in the mouth of the dead to assure their passage to the underworld. Their financial support were assured by eating and sharing with pharisees, who then collected money from the people; it is the reason why jesus tried to steal the temple (his "holy" anger...) and was frequently going around with "sinners" who collaborated to steal and kill those who were not of his side.
The translation of Judas Ishkariot, "ish-sikarioth" is "man of murder", the sicaire being a type of blade used by the assassins. He lost popular support at the end of his life.
They crucified political activists head down, but bandits head up. Useless to say that his resurrection is taken from various accounts of initiates like Appolonnius of Thyana, whose legend was really strong at this time. Life of Saul-Paul is definitely of a great importance for the creation of the christian religion. He[Paul] is the real creator of the Christian religion. And Apocalype attributed to John were written by Jesus himself during his life, as a letter to his apostle John, predicting the coming of the king of jerusalem. (This contradiction is still in the common bible)
The Templars and Cathars (these last were against Christianism) really did required the abjuration of Christ divinity and the cross. If they did not avowed homosexuality or adoration of an idol, they did so for this point'. [http://www.dailygrail.com/blogs/amora/2006/7/Priory-ScionMary-Magdalene-and-Sangreal]
