Behind The Bible Fraud - What Was The Church Trying To Hide?

When I first spoke to a close Christian friend of mine about the
publishing of Tony Bushby's The Bible Fraud, her reaction was one that many
Christians have expressed, and one that made me aghast. She didn't want the
book available because it would "persuade them away from the Bible and the
word of God." Further discussions with her and many other Christians around
the world about The Bible Fraud all result in the Bible being quoted as the
ultimate reference for the apparent "words of God," and therefore the basis
for their arguments. The problem lies in that they believe the Bible is
If we examine the oldest known Bible to date, the "Sinai Bible"
housed in the British Museum (I believe that, during his many years of
research, Tony had a private viewing of this priceless book), we find a
staggering 14,800 differences from today's Bible and yet it still remains
the word of God?
As Tony points out, the history of our 'genuine' Bibles is a
convoluted one. Firstly we cannot be sure that we have the full version as
it was originally intended. In 1415 the Church of Rome took an extraordinary
step to destroy all knowledge of two second century Jewish books that it
said contained the true name of Jesus Christ. The Antipope Benedict XIII
firstly singled out for condemnation a secret Latin treatise called "Mar
Yesu" and then issued instructions to destroy all copies of the book of
Elxai. The Rabbinic fraternity once held the destroyed manuscripts with
great reverence for they were comprehensive original records reporting the
life of Rabbi Jesus.
Later, Pope Alexander VI ordered all copies of the Talmud destroyed,
with the Spanish Grand Inquisitor Tomas de Torquemada (1420-98) responsible
for the elimination of 6,000 volumes at Salamanca alone.
Solomon Romano (1554) also burnt many thousands of Hebrew scrolls
and, in 1559, every Hebrew book in the city of Prague was confiscated. The
mass destruction of Jewish books included hundreds of copies of the Old
Testament and caused the irretrievable loss of many original handwritten
The oldest text of the Old Testament that survived, before the
discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls" was said to be the Bodleian Codex
(Oxford), which was dated to circa 1100 AD. In an attempt by the church to
remove damaging Rabbinic information about Jesus Christ from the face of the
earth, the Inquisition burnt 12,000 volumes of the Talmud.
In 1607, forty-seven men (some records say fifty four) took two
years and nine months to re-write the Bible and make it ready for press. It
was, by the order of King James, issued with a set of personal 'rules' the
translators were to follow. Upon its completion in 1609, it was handed over
to the King James for his final approval. However, "It was self evident that
James was not competent to check their work and edit it, so he passed the
manuscripts onto the greatest genius of all time... Sir Francis Bacon"
The first English language manuscripts of the Bible remained in
Bacon's possession for nearly a year. During that time ... "he hammered the
various styles of the translators into the unity, rhythm, and music of
Shakespearean prose, wrote the prefaces and created the whole scheme of the
Authorized Version. At the completion of the editing, King James ordered a
'dedication to the King' to be drawn up and included in the opening pages.
He also wanted the phrase 'Appointed to be read in the churches' to appear
on the title page.
The King James Bible is considered by many today to be the
'original' Bible and therefore 'genuine' and all later revisions simply
counterfeits forged by 'higher critics'. Others think the King James Bible
is 'authentic' and 'authorized' and presents the original words of the
authors as translated into English from the 'original' Greek texts. However,
as Tony points out, the 'original' Greek text was not written until around
the mid fourth century and was a revised edition of writings compiled
decades earlier in Aramaic and Hebrew. Those earlier documents no longer
exist and the Bibles we have today are five linguistic removes from the
first bibles written. What was written in the 'original originals' is quite
unknown. It is important to remember that the words 'authorized' and
'original', as applied to the Bible do not mean 'genuine', 'authentic' or
By the early third century, it became well noted that a problem was
occurring . politics! In 251AD, the number of Presbyter's (roving orator or
priest) writings had increased dramatically and bitter arguments raged
between opposing factions about their conflicting stories. According to
Presbyter Albius Theodoret (circa 255), there were "more than two hundred"
variant gospels in use in his time. In 313, groups of Presbyters and Biscops
(Bishops) violently clashed over the variations in their writings and "altar
was set against altar" in competing for an audience and territory.
When Emperor Constantine conquered the East in 324, he sent his
Spanish religious advisor, Osius of Cordoba, to Alexandria with letters to
several Biscops exhorting them to make peace among their own. But the
mission failed and Constantine, probably at the suggestions of Osius, then
issued a decree commanding all Presbyters and their subordinates "be mounted
on asses, mules and horses belonging to the public and travel to the city of
Nicaea" in the Roman province of Bithymia, the country of Asia. The
Presbyters were instructed by the Emperor to bring with them the manuscripts
from which they orated to the rabble (that's us!) "wrapped and bound in
Constantine saw in this developing system of belief the opportunity
to make a combined state religion and protect it by law. The first general
church council was thus convened and the year was 325.
On 21 June, the day of the Summer Solstice, (and under those cult
conditions) a total of 2048 "presbyters, deacons, sub-deacons, acolytes and
exorcists" gathered at Nicaea to decide what Christianity really was, what
it would be, what writings were to be used and who was to be it's God.
Ancient church evidence established that a new 'god' was to be
approved by the Roman Emperor and an earlier attempt (circa 210) to deify
either Judas Khrestus or his twin brother Rabbi Jesus (or somebody else) had
been 'declined'. Therefore, as late as 325, the Christian religion did not
have an official god.
After a long and bitter debate, a vote was finally taken and it was
with a majority show of hands that Judas Khrestus and Rabbi Jesus both
became God (161votes for and 157 votes against). The Emperor effectively
joined elements of the two individual life stories of the twin brothers into
a singular creation. The doctrine of the Celtic / British church of the west
was democratically attached to the Presbyters stories of the east.
A deification ceremony was then performed 'Apotheosis'. Thus the
deified ones were then called 'saviours' and looked upon as gods. Temples,
altars, and images with attributes of divinity were then erected and public
holidays proclaimed on their birthdays.
Following the original example set by the deification of Caesar,
their funerals were dramatized as the scene of their resurrection and
immortality. All these godly attributes passed as a legal right to Emperor
Constantine's new deity, Jesus Christ.
The Emperor then instructed Bishop Eusebius to compile a uniform
collection of new writings "bound together as one" using the stories from
the large collection of Presbyters as his reference source. Eusebius was to
arrange for the production of "fifty sumptuous copies ... to be written on
parchment in a legible manner, and in a convenient portable form, by
professional scribes thoroughly accomplished in the art". This was the first
mention of finished copies of a Christian 'New Testament' in the history of
As one can imagine, to condense the real life of the Jesus Christ,
the Church and His teachings with supporting evidence into a short article
is very difficult. It is therefore wise for those who wish to have
supportable evidence to read and study Tony Bushby's epic work, The Bible
Fraud, along with it's detailed blood lines (family trees) and over 869
references. (see www.thebiblefraud.com)
However, attempting to summarize what Tony has written..... in 325
AD, the first Christian council was called at Nicaea to bring the stories of
twin brothers, Jesus 'the Rabbi' and Judas Khrestus into one deity that we
now know as Jesus Christ. Tony says they were not born of virgin birth but
to Nabatean Arab Mariamne Herod (now known as the Virgin Mary) and fathered
by Tiberius ben Panthera, a Roman Centurion. The brothers were raised in the
Essene community and became Khrists of their faith. Rabbi Jesus later was
initiated in Egypt at the highest of levels similar to the 33rd degree of
Freemasonry of which many Prime ministers and Presidents around the world
today are members. He then later married three wives, one of whom we know as
a Mary Magdalene, a Druidic Princess, stole the Torah from the temple and
moved to Lud, now London.
Tony believes the reason Jesus stole the Torah was that he said it
contained "a very special secret", which he was going to reveal that secret
to the world. He was stoned to death and the Torah taken from him before he
The elder brother, Judas Khrestus, with his "Khrestian" followers
conspired to take the throne of Rome, his royal birthright, and was
captured, tried, and was sentenced to be crucified. (The "Khrestians" and
the Essenic army, the Nazarenes, would today be likened to terrorists.) At
the trial, Judas exercised his royal birthright to have a replacement in
Simon of Cyrene (Luke 23:41) and then was sold as a slave to live out his
days as a carpenter in India.
Rabbi Jesus spent a considerable amount of time at the Palace of the
British in Rome and sometime around 48 AD, he left for Egypt to pursue his
greatest esoteric goal. The spiritual knowledge from his secret education in
the Essene and Druid movements was soon to be elevated to the highest level
possible - initiation into the innermost rite of the Egyptian temples.
It was probable that Rabbi Jesus' earlier initiation into both the
Essene and Druid schools played a major part in his acceptance into the
Egyptian school. The Druids could claim a very early origin and the essence
of their wisdom was also that of the Essenes. In the case of the Essenes, it
is possible to show that their movement was specifically established to
preserve secret information, for they knew and used the sacred writing of
the Initiates. The full meaning of the point being made by Bushby is that in
the case of all Secret Schools, the inner and ultimate Mystery was revealed
only to a High Initiate.
Those who were initiated into the Ancient mysteries took a solemn
oath never to reveal what had passed within the sacred walls. Every year
only a comparatively few Egyptian initiations were conducted, and the number
of persons who knew their secrets was never at any time large. The
initiations always took place with the onset of darkness and the candidate
was entranced for periods of varying length, depending upon the level of the
degree for which he had entered.
The first initiatory step involved a forty-day procedure that
basically involved purification, not only in physical form, but dissolving
all tendencies to evil thoughts, purifying the mind as well. It appears that
he would have fasted, alternatively on vegetables, juices and very special
The New Testament recorded that this happened to Rabbi Jesus who
"was led into the desert.... and he fasted forty days and forty nights"
This trial period involved more than just fasting. During the forty
days and nights' ordeal, Tony says the candidate was required to study
astronomical charts to supplement his skills in astronomy and memorize
charts of the heavens. They were also given a particular ritual from which
to memorize certain passwords, secret signs and handclasps, skills that are
still practiced to this day in Freemasonry.
These initiations were not limited to Egypt. The ancient
civilizations inherited these Mysteries from a remote antiquity and they
constituted part of a primitive revelation from the gods to the human race.
Almost every people of pre-Christian times possessed its institution and
tradition of the mysteries. The Romans, the Druids of Britain, the Greeks,
the Cretans, the Syrians, the Hindus, the Persians, the Maya and the
American Indians, among others, had corresponding temples and rites with a
system of graduated illuminations for the initiates.
The modern world knows little of these ancient rites yet they were
conducted in a huge variety of buildings the world over.
The 'Towers' that are found throughout the East in Asia were
directly connected with the Mystery-initiations. The candidates for
initiation were placed in them for three days and three nights, whenever
there was no temple with a subterranean crypt close at hand.
In this aspect of the initiatory procedure, Tony points out a direct
Gospel parallel with Rabbi Jesus saying, "After three days I shall rise
again", for he knew the finishing process he was to undertake would take
three days being a symbol of the period of time required to complete a
condition of development. The ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic texts speak of
an initiate as 'twice-born', and he was permitted to add to his name the
words 'he who has renewed his life', so that on some ancient
tomb-inscriptions archaeologists still discover these phases descriptive of
the spiritual status of the deceased person.
So little did the later Gospel writers understand the initiatory
process that they never perceived they were developing a story that included
a Rabbi's (and Arch Druid of Britain) experience in an Egyptian Mystery
St Austin (c. 380) asserted that it was generally known in church
circles that Rabbi Jesus had been initiated in Egypt, and that "he wrote
books concerning magic". In the Gospel of Nicodemus, the Jews brought the
same accusation before Pontius Pilate, "Did we not tell you he was a
magician?" Celsus (c. 178) spoke of the same charge. In the Clementine
Recognitions, the accusation was brought against Rabbi Jesus that he did not
perform any miracles but practiced magic and carried about with him the
figure of a seated skeleton.
Jewish tradition invariably asserted that Rabbi Jesus learned
'magic' in Egypt. Bushby says the kernel of this persistent accusation may
perhaps be reduced to the simple historical element that Rabbi Jesus went to
Egypt and returned with far wider and more enlightened views than those of
his former religious associates.
Now, I'm sure that many of you are having trouble grasping some of
the ideas presented in this article and I congratulate you on taking the
effort to read this far. We all need to demand our local Church, the Church
scholars, theologians and media make an open examination of the evidence
compiled in Tony Bushby's The Bible Fraud. It may rattle some core beliefs
but what is more important to you . the truth or what sits comfortably
because it's what you've known all you life?
I leave you with a quote from one of the conspirators
"How well we know what a profitable superstition this fable of
Christ has been for us." Pope Leo X (1513-1521)
