Bloodline of the Holy Grail
Extract from the Ancestors and Descendants of Jesus, from King David to King Arthur, illustrating Jesus' marriage to Mary Magdalene and their children Tamar, Jesus II the Justus, and Josephes ha Rama Theo.
The current publicity given to the subject of Jesus' marriage to Mary Magdalene and subsequent children, by the publication and over 10 million sales of the novel The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown, gives us a good reason to put the genealogical record straight. The source for this information comes from the scholarship and research conducted by Laurence Gardner and documented in his book - Bloodline of the Holy Grail - published in 1995.
Laurence Gardner has highlighted the existence of the Chronology of the Acts of the Apostles, which give a detailed chronology of important events throughout Jesus' mission, which includes the dates of birth of his three children.
It is important to remember that the one secure record, which has survived the ravages of time, persecution, library fires and wanton destruction, are the family trees of the many related branches of families all over Europe, from the time that people first cared about their ancestry. We have reproduced with Laurence Gardner's permission, this segment of the genealogical record, which relates directly to Jesus' close family. Genealogical research has therefore provided the most reliable means of cross referencing the wealth of records on this subject, in order to establish the genealogical truth.
In this area of research, together with his exceptional links and knowledge through fine art restoration, Laurence Gardner has established a reputation which is second to none - His work also highlights the importance of, and the essential links between, the tradition of Monarchy, the Grail Code, and Good Government. His books, which blend so well to the O'Brien scholarship are featured on our website www.goldenageproject.org.uk and are available from the website bookshop.
Bloodline of the Holy Grail is not restricted in content
to genealogies and tales of political intrigue, but its pages
hold the key to the essential Grail Code: the key not only
to an historical mystery but to a way of life. It is a book
about good government and bad government. It tells how the
patriarchal kingship of people was supplanted by dogmatic
tyranny and the dictatorial over-lordship of land. It is a
journey of discovery through past ages, with its eye set firmly
on the future.
what has all this to do with the Grail ? Everything. The Grail
has many guises and many attributes - as will be revealed.
Yet, in whatever form it is portrayed, the Grail quest is
governed by an overriding desire for honest achievement. It
is the route by which all can survive among the fit, for it
is the key to harmony and unity at every social and natural
station. The Grail Code recognizes advancement by merit, and
acknowledges community structure - but above all things it
is entirely democratic. Whether apprehended in its physical
or its spiritual dimension, the Grail belongs to leaders and
followers alike, enjoining that all should be as one in a
common, unified service.
Taken from The Bloodline of the Holy Grail by Laurence Gardner
Once upon a time
Once upon a time in the civilized world, the monarch and the public servants, who honoured their oath of allegiance, delivered to the people, freedom, justice, leisure and instruction.
By facilitating instruction and apprenticeship, the state encouraged each individual to develop special skills appropriate to the ascribed, natural or genetic abilities of that individual, to meet the many needs of the wider community. The pursuit of excellence in each department was a matter of honour, where self interest led to a duty of care towards fellow citizens and the overall success of that community.
