Publisher's Summary

The Safed and Alexandrian Essene Scrolls agree in respect to the fact that Jesus never died on the cross, but was taken down, unconscious, and later revived by his Essene brethren who, in the middle of the night, carried him from the tomb where he was laid, thus creating the false impression among those who came later to see him, but found him gone, that he had risen from the dead and was resurrected.

Together with his faithful companion, Mary Magdalene, disguised as an elderly couple, they then fled to India, where they devoted themselves to the study of Eastern wisdom. Later, they traveled as far as Japan, where they died, a memorial erected in their honor.

Poorly Written Poppycock

The story begins in a Hollywood B movie way: an old man gives a Russian doctor a scroll that says a sect of Jews, the Essenes, faked the sacrificial death of one of their own to win the sympathy of their oppressors. (A scheme that definitely backfired for the Jewish people, were it true.) Ooh ahhh. The narrator makes the point over and over that Yeshua (aka Jesus) was a heckuva mensch who took one for the team but, otherwise, was nothing to write home about. Despite this bold and antagonistic claim, nothing in this poorly written, repetitive little diatribe is supported by evidence. Unless you are a student of ignorant propaganda, save your money for a more enlightened and enlightening listen.
