There is another powerful connection between the stories of Mari, Joseph and Jesus. The link is Skilly Pit of Ab-aton. The Gospel of Luke says Jesus’ father Joseph (E.A) was a son of Hel.1 This is strange. In Judeo-Christian terminology Hell is a place to be avoided at all costs. Originally, however, Hel was the goddess’ fiery furnace or womb of transformation; a place where men were transformed into gods.2

The Book of Revelation3 calls Hel the Pit of Abaddon or Ab-atton, the home of Apollo, the serpent-deity, who periodically returned to Tula to gather sacred knowledge. Significantly, the meaning of the Egyptian word ab, the heart-soul that came from the Mother Goddess, was reversed in Hebrew; ab was redefined as “father.”

Hel was also the Greek word for the Sun. The Greeks called themselves Hellenes meaning “chidlren of the Sun.” Today we have the words heliocentric (to be measured from the sun’s center), helix, the spirals of human DNA.

In the feminine Gnostic tradition, Mary’s husband Joseph was a carpenter who assembled the Pillar upon which Jesus was crucified. The feminine teachings relative to the heart-soul of the Pit of Abatton were suppressed, as were the Joseph’s secrets of the Pillar. They were not, however, completely erased. References to the feminine teachings appear in veiled form throughout the Gospels and in Christian tradition.

For example, Jesus spent his three days between Crucifixion and resurrection in Joseph’s tomb.4 Some Christians believe Jesus spent these three days fighting demons in Hell.

If we follow the linguistic lead suggesting that Hell is the same as the Pit of Abatton, the womb of transformation of the goddess, and investigate this Pit’s possible role in the Crucifixion, we find strange and persistent legends linking the family of Jesus to this Pit. Rather than a tomb, Jesus would have spent three days in a womb of transformation. One result of this process was the soma, the wise blood.

As we have seen, the word Druid means ‘skilled’. The etymology of this word suggests that when Joseph went into the Abatton Pit he emerged with skill or wisdom, hence the name Skill or Skilly. If Jesus entered this Pit, or wormhole, as I have proposed, then we should be able to find evidence of this in the linguistic record.

In Godseed: The Journey of Christ,5 Dr. Jean Houston presents what I consider a major revelation when she notes that Christos and Chrestos were interchangeable terms to the early Christians. Chrestos means simpleton, great silly or blessed one. She says that, in one of the apocryphal traditions, Pontius Pilate is supposed to have said to Jesus upon the Pillar, “Ain Chrestos!” or “You are the great silly.”6

When the interchangeability between silly and skilly, both words mean “blessed,” is taken into account, might Pilate have meant to say, “You are the great Chrestos or Skilly?” Did this mean “You are the Druid of great wisdom!“ or “You are the great Blessed One!?” Paul affirms this notion that Jesus is the incarnation of the divine Wisdom when he says, “he is the power and the wisdom of God.”7


In John 10:19 Jesus said:

“I am the door. If anyone enters through Me, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”

In the mythological Language of the Birds (Bards) duir and door are phonetically similar in English, and therefore, interchangeable. As duir means ‘druid’, in this case Jesus is saying, “I am the Druid.”

In Mark 14:61-62, at his trial Jesus is asked directly by the high priest and Sanhedrin, “Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed (‘skill’)?” Jesus’ reply was equally direct. “I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.” With that the charge of blasphemy against Jesus was affirmed.

Recalling that Mount Meru was the home of the Blessed Ones, we may safely assume these Blessed Ones, the people of Saba or ‘wise blood’, were the Druids or the Daruvids, the People of the Pillar. The name Scala Dei, Ladder of God, was given to this Pillar as a reference to its owner, who was called Skilly, Blessed One.



Skilly is the linguistic key that links us to evidence of the Druid involvement in the Crucifixion. Skilly is also the key that ties Jesus’ attire at the Crucifixion with the coat, hat and other garments worn by Mari when she went ‘far into the universe’. There is additional evidence for the use of Skilly as the word to describe Jesus.

According to Grail historian Andrew Sinclair, in the French History of the Grail the cup, dish or platter used to collect the transformed Blood of Christ on the Pillar was called the escuele (pronounced ‘skool’, ‘skiel’ or ‘skill’).8 In its Christian dimension the escuele is the Holy Grail --the mystic receptacle used by Christ to perform the Eucharist at the Last Supper when he poured wine for the disciples to drink, saying, “this is my blood.” The next day the escuele appeared at the Crucifixion with Joseph of Arimathea or Mary Magdalene as the Grail-bearer.

Sinclair claims the History was the first description of the Grail as the literal Word or Name of God.9 The History makes it clear that this Name or title was not Jesus Christ. It was Escuele, ‘skill’ or ‘Scill(y)’.

The Grail heresy further states that, after the Crucifixion, a few drops of the blood of life (soma or Sa Ba) spilled out of Jesus’ body while Joseph tended his wounds. Joseph collected these drops in the escuele and took them to Glastonbury Tor in England. If Skill is the actual (Druid) Name or title of Christos, it makes perfect sense why the escuele (skill) receptacle in which Joseph collected the Holy Blood was so named. It too referred to its owner. This is akin to a doctor labeling a vial containing a blood sample with a patient’s name. The vial containing the blood of the patient shares the name of the patient because they are the same. In this case, the flowering rod of Joseph is the blood of Christ.

Flowers and the word Skill(y) strangely go together. For example, near Mexico City there is a “lake of flowers” where “xochil or socheel (‘skeel’),” the Aztec word for flowers, are sold.10 The Skilly/Jesus connection may explain why. Tula, the name of the sacred city of the Druids, is located near Mexico City. It is the sacred name for Atlantis. The Hopi, who are descendents of the Aztecs of Mexico City tell of the white teacher Massau or Messiah and Tula. Petroglyphs from Eagar, Arizona show possible Massau figures. He is shown as a skull (skill) like figure including a triangular V nose and gnashing teeth (symbolizing ‘tooth’ or ‘thoth’).



Understanding that escuele is the blood of life (or the wise soul of Sa Ba) explains why it was taken to Glastonbury Tor. Today Glastonbury Tor is a popular tourist attraction. In Jesus’ time it was counted along with Salisbury (near Stonehenge), Bristol, Bath and Dorchester as principle Druid centers of learning. They contained as many as 60,000 students who represented the nobility of the country. It required over 20 years to complete the rigorous academic curriculum of Druidic knowledge, which included philosophy, astronomy, arithmetic, geometry, jurisprudence, medicine, poetry and oratory.11

It is claimed that Jesus studied at a Druid university at Glastonbury.12 When he arrived it was evident that he was a Druid. During this time he worked part-time in his uncle’s tin mines. Even into the 20th century miners and tinners of this area chant and sing a song that contains the words: “Jesus was in the trade.”

I have already pointed out the correspondences between the Druidic Tau cross and the Christian (S)tau-ros Pillar and how the coming savior was identified as Yesus hundreds of years before the time of Jesus. The more Druidism is studied the more obvious is its relationship to the teachings of Jesus. This may explain why the Druids so quickly accepted Jesus into their inner mysteries and why Joseph of Arimathea chose Glastonbury Tor as the place to store the ‘blood of life’.

One reason most Christians may not have previously considered the connection between Jesus and the Druids is that the Roman political machine viewed Druidism as one of its greatest threats. It was largely wiped out by emperors Augustus, the founder of the Roman empire and its sole ruler from 31 B.C. to A.D. 14, and Tiberius both Caesars who outlawed the religion of the Druids, declaring its practice a treasonous offense.

Tiberius was the Caesar mentioned by Jesus in response to a question about taxes. Jesus held up a Roman coin, saying,

“Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”13

Tiberius’ profile was stamped on the coins. His 23 year reign (A.D. 14-37) spanned the entire ministry of Jesus. Tiberius’ rule has fixed the date that John the Baptist began his ministry: “in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar”14 or A.D. 29. During that reign, Tiberius appointed Pontius Pilate as governor of Judea.

The Roman invasions of Britain by Julius Caesar (whose assassination catapulted Augustus to the throne at the age of 19) and Emperor Claudius (who ruled from A.D. 41 to 54) were largely designed to exterminate the Druids. These religious purists had long been rivals of Rome’s desire to control the minds of its people. Claudius also persecuted the Jews. The Book of Acts says, “Claudius had commanded all the Jews to leave Rome.”15 He forbade them to hold religious meetings.

A Roman historian, Seutonius (c. 69-140) wrote that,

“the Jews constantly made disturbances at the instigation of Chrestus, so Claudius expelled them from Rome.”

Seutonius appears to be stating that the Blessed One, Chrestus/Skilly, was alive and well and stirring up trouble in Rome in A.D. 49!


Aquila and Prisca, two Jewish tent makers accompanied him. After their banishment from Rome they went to Corinth and lived and worked with the apostle Paul.



Once apprehended, my “Jesus is the Druid Skilly” hypothesis finds immense support in the Bible. The most amazing parts of this evidence are linked to what blatantly appear to be stargate stories.

The key word fossil to reference is Escuele and words of a similar resonance. Another word is wood and its usage in reference to Jesus as a poor carpenter. If we make the small adjustment from Jesus as a wood worker to a word worker it would begin to align us with the skilled word worker Jesus who matches Dead Sea Scroll scholar Geza Verme’s ‘carpenter’, which, he says, stands for ‘scholar’ in certain Talmudic sayings.

Obviously, skill and scholar are not that far apart. For example, in the Old Testament we find the word Eschol.16 Like escuele, when we remove the vowels from Eschol we are left with schl or skl, both phonetically sk-il. Bearing in mind that once vowels are added they are interchangeable, might we render Eschol as Eschil or E-Skill?

Remember Eschol? This word fossil appears fourteen hundred years before Jesus in the Old Testament book of Numbers 13:21 as the name of the outpost of the Anunnaki (“the Tula boys”). The valley of Eschol, Joshua declared, “eateth the people up!”

Might this description equally suggest a pit or stargate of some kind? Given that Joshua was the grandson of Joseph could this people-eating angelic outpost have housed the transformative Pit of Abatton which ‘devoured’ both Joseph and Jesus and transformed them into a Skilly? Did Joshua son of Nun, the Old Testament Jesus, undergo a similar nuclear experience?

Once ‘crushed’, the ‘grapes or Blue Apples of Eschol ’ became the wine of the Eucharist, the blood of Chrestus (which is the Blood of Skill or the Wise Blood), used by Jesus as the Last Supper and caught in the escuele.

The Eschol-Skill connection reinforces the idea that these grapes would have played a vital role in Jesus’ journey into the Pit of Abatton during the Crucifixion.

At Rennes-le-Chateau, located in the wine country of Southern France, these grapes of Skill are called the Blue Apples and are the logo for the Grail heresy. They represent the secret of immortality. They are the ‘blue stones’, or the Druid ’serpents eggs’ that turn an ordinary person into a Shining One.



Another key biblical word resonant with Escuele or Skill is skull (or skll with the ‘u’ removed). Accurate or not, Jesus is widely believed to have been crucified at Golgotha, the Place of the Skull -- or Skill.

The Knights Templar, who claimed to guard the secrets of Christ, said they possessed, and worshipped, the head or skull of God that they called sophia or ‘wisdom’, which is the same definition as skill. No one can say for certain what this skull is or where the Place of the Skull where Jesus was crucified is located.

The overwhelming weight of Christian history says it was somewhere in Jerusalem. Linguistic evidence I have presented says it was the Great Pyramid. Might “the Place of the Skull,” and the Templar skull of God or wisdom, both actually be a reference to the Son of God’s name: Skull or Skill(y) and also the location of the Pit of Abatton which transforms a man into a Druid Skill, a wise man?

Incredibly, there is a pit beneath the Great Pyramid. Up until Vatican II each day the Roman Church called upon Jesus the Father and the Master of the Ages to come:

Jesus pater futuri SAECULI

Because of the nature of the secrets of the Skull of God the Church massacred the Templars. Was this secret the real Name of God? Did the Templars steal a trick from the Gospel writers and cleverly conceal this Name, Skull or Skill, while at the same time tell those ‘in the know‘ exactly what it is? Did they count on future seekers to investigate the meaning of the word Skull or Skill and connect the Crucifixion with the stargate events of the past?

Who cares? After all, what difference does it make if the Son of God’s real name is Jesus or Skill(y) or if the Crucifixion was the opening of a stargate so long as the result of his life is the same?

There may be a world of difference. If the real name of Jesus (or its Druid origins) was switched, obscured, or kept secret altogether (largely to support Roman political purposes), then why not other crucial parts of his story, including details about the Crucifixion? Or what about special knowledge that Jesus brought forth that could benefit humanity or aid individuals on their path to ascension? In other words, where’s the stargate secrets?

As we have noted, the Grail conceals the mystery for transmuting, fashioning or forming matter. Grouped together, these definitions force a question: was the Crucifixion an event designed to bring the Christ Light from the core of Tula to Earth, the secret of transmuting matter? Was the Stau-ros Pillar, the Pillar of Love, the device which enabled this transmutation?

The ladder symbolism brings us back to the central goal of the Grail mysteries: how to find the gate to Heaven and transform ourselves into a being capable of entering this gate.

In 1773, while the American colonies were preparing to separate from the British Empire the Coptic document Pistis Sophia mysteriously appeared in England. The Copts, the descendants of the Egyptians who became Christians, wrote it.

In this famous Gnostic-Christian gospel, which contains what are alleged to be some of Jesus’ esoteric teachings to his disciples, Jesus talks about the afterlife in terms that have been borrowed heavily from the Egyptian Book of the Dead.10

Jesus gives what may be the first stargate lesson.

“You are to seek after the mysteries of the Light, which purify the body and make it into refined light exceedingly purified.”11

Jesus implores us to:

“Cease not to seek day and night and remit not yourselves until ye find the purifying mysteries which will purify you and make you into a refined light, so that ye will go on high and inherit the light of my kingdom.”12

In the Pistis Jesus expounds the doctrine of reincarnation as a universal law governing the lives of all humankind.

“Put not off from day to day, and from cycle to cycle, in the belief that ye will succeed in obtaining the mysteries when ye return to the world in another cycle.”13

He further states our world and worlds in higher realms are intimately connected “from within outwards.” This statement refers to a transformation of consciousness that opens the door to other worlds.

Scientists have recently concluded we only perceive ten percent of the universe.14 The rest is “dark,” invisible to humans. Our purpose is to open our spiritual vision to see into this darkness.

What is our reward for developing such vision? The Biblical version of opening our sacred vision is described by Isaiah:

“For look, I am going to create new heavens and a new Earth, and the past will not be remembered.” 15

Jesus taught the reality of this new Heaven and Earth when he described himself as a Good Shepherd who alone could lead the sheep out of their fold.

When we acquire our H we will perceive a new reality and hence see or have the power to create a new Heaven and a new Earth. This is the powerful reward the ancient prophets said we would receive during the time of destiny.


In John 10:19 Jesus said:

“I am the door.
If anyone enters through Me, he shall be saved,
and shall go in and out,
and find pasture.”

As we have seen, the key to decoding the esoteric meaning of Jesus as the “door” is found in the Sabala and the Emerald (S)tones of Thoth. The bulk of the myths used to explain this process of climbing the Ladder to Heaven are derived from Sumerian, Egyptian, Greco-Roman and Judeo-Christian myth.

Properly understood, these myths describe the step-by-step procedures for increasing awareness, love, and attaining enlightenment, revelation.

These procedures were artfully and intentionally disguised using figurative terminology so as to be transparent to all but the initiated. Throughout this book I am working from the premise that the most significant mythological tales originally had a foundation in astronomy, physiology, psychology or history.
