The Secret Family of Jesus

The following is a video clip from The Secret Family of Jesus, a special BBC program narrated by Robert Beckford.

This documentary examines the real nature of Jesus as believed by his followers and the Early Christian Jews. Taking a close look at early Christian history, it examines the rise of Paul's version of Christianity vs. the rival group of Christian Jews who were the followers of Jesus. The video is about 41 minutes long.

A well researched and excellently written book on this topic is "The Jesus Dynasty: The Hidden History of Jesus, His Royal Family, and the Birth of Christianity" by James D. Tabor. I highly recommend it. It's fascinating, makes a lot of sense, and is a quick read.

The Real Jesus no-one knows personally. He left the earth 2000 years ago. soon the world will know the real "Christ" Jesus, but, not, until the apostasy has run its course. We have been Christian Apostasy (Error)for nigh on 2000 years. There will never be peace on this earth or for that matter in the entire Universe until His return to planet earth, and coronated King of the Planet earth. The historical Count-down is on....

A celestial!

No one knows the real jesus personally?

Wow! What about all of the christians who insist that they have a personal relationship with christ?

I guess they're all deluded idiots - or you're a deluded idiot. Either way, if the "count down" is on, then we better get busy partying while we've still got the chance.

lol, imagine 2000 years into the future and...still no jesus. Just like there was no second coming of marduk, isis, nekhrizor and the billions of other saviour characters that were foretold to return. I bet christians'll just go rooting around in historical and astronomical texts and say "whoops, sorry, we were a hundred years off, jesus is coming back *next* century, fingers crossed folks!" for eons and eons untill we all get wiped out by a solar radiation wave (the technology for preventing which was banned by the church, of course) and the universe keeps on going...

As a special New Year treat for us all, would one of you Christians who visit this site actually like to address the original posting, instead of simply making a general statement of faith, which is just about all we seem to get from you people these days.

In this case, for example, you could comment on the claim in the video that the role of Jesus's family, and especially that of James the Just, has been deliberately down-played in the New Testament at the expense of Paul and his message.

Perhaps you think that there's a good reason for this. If so, let's hear it, and we can have a proper discussion.

Sorry!, that should have been: 'to the benefit of Paul and his message.'

Jesus is already here!I really saw him!

He mows the lawn next door to my house. Wow,..that's a humble savior.
*I guess he got bored with carpentry,...he now prefers landscaping.
