How I wish I had been able to research the many references in this book!. I have studied the history of the Bible most of my life and there seems to be no doubt that the entire New Testament is a fabrication created by Edict of Constantine, a ruthless dictator not unlike Saddam Hussein.

Once one recognizes that there is not just one distortion but also thousands of distortions, how can any statement be honored??. The Bible Fraud should be read by everyone. Whether Jesus was one of twins, a first report to me, is relatively immaterial. That he lived and was the foundation for the Myth of Christianity is the fascinating story. The fact is that facts in the Bible are not facts!!

Intelligent thinking individuals need to read this. I have made it required reading for all my students.

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 infallible.

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 documents...

"In the First Century, the Druidic institutions were the largest in the world, both in size and in attendance. In Britain, alone they had a recorded number of sixty universities and over 60,000 enrolled students....Ancient Britain had acquired a stature with institutions of learning that rivaled those of today and many elected to study there. Greek and Roman testimony stated that the noble and wealthy of Athens and Rome sent their children to study law, science and religion in Britain ..."

As the population becomes more sophisticated, the Internet faster, and the connections between political alliances break down, it becomes possible for many researchers to get access to documents heretofore buried in the realms of antiquity, and, of course, the basement of the Vatican.

The dusty realms of the past seem to be shaking away the clouds of time, and the most curious information glistens. Those of us brave and curious enough are enchanted to have discovered a golden vein of data that can change how we view ourselves and the world.

Ancient manuscripts, from the dead sea scrolls and India, to almost forgotten writings of the Druids, tell a far different story about the beginnings of Christianity - a story deeply interesting, intriguing, and fascinating.

There is a truth about a man named Jesus, and his story, not only is inspiring, but leaves us wondering -- exactly what did he really discover, where did his quest eventually lead him, and what burning message did he really have?

The Author, Tony Bushby, of The Bible Fraud, has written a masterpiece. He fills in major blanks of history, and describes an unbelievable panorama of political intrigue, marriage, and bloodlines, that brings light to the entire political structure of our world, as well as the earliest beginnings of Christianity. Apparently the real Jesus lit a fire, a fire that inspired others to the point of fanaticism, which turned the world into a religious political nightmare - and through that nightmare, what is known as The New Testament was born - not out of any love of the truth, but out of a desperate need to stop the religious insanity that had developed over 300 years after the real Jesus left his life.

And, Jesus didn't leave like we're told. In a twisted story that begins in Israel, and takes us to Britain and then to Egypt we find an honorable, spiritual man on a holy quest. A man who, it seems, discovered something that he did want to tell the world, but hardly got the chance. A man who wanted to share all the secrets with the People, but who became so embroiled in the "control and domination" political structure of that time, that he was unable to give us more than just a hint. A man who seemed to have defied everything and everyone, but the question remains, what was it he really wanted to tell us?

The political masters of the time buried it, burned it, destroyed it in every way they could, and what we have left is the New Testament - pieces of a story that when put together make no sense, even to biblical scholars - until now. Mr. Bushby does the impossible; he has given us many of the missing pieces about a story that had the potential to change the world.

The good news for Christians is that Jesus was literally, at that time, the Son of God, but the bad news is that the title "Son of God" meant something entirely different then than it does today.

The Emperor Constantine, in 325 A.D. established the Christian religion, but how many people have had the privilege to know what that entailed, what records were brought to the meeting, who argued for what cause, and how it was all settled? How many people know the political and religious strife at the time, and what it meant to burn books, and records - records that apparently had already been corrupted through the religious competition of the day.

Who knows how bloodthirsty Constantine was? How many people he killed, including members of his family. And, what was at stake?. The time period between the real Jesus and the fabrication of the truth in the Council of Nicaea was full of turmoil, for apparently, some of what Jesus wanted to say did get out, and the crowd that heard it repeated it, embellished it, and then the ignorant made stories up about it. There were confused versions, and heated debates, because by the time Constantine made use of it, it was already a big moneymaking event.

Although I'm familiar with the ever-growing stories of the Merovignian Blood Lines in books such as "Holy Blood, Holy Grail,"  I found The Bible Fraud to offer far more factual and pertinent data, along with a much-needed explanation of many areas of our past that need to be thoroughly understood.

One question that will be asked by readers of The Bible Fraud is "Who is Tony Bushby?", the author of this momentous work. In a way it is like an earlier generation asking "Who is John Galt?" Tony Bushby, after twelve years of painstaking research, has questioned and challenged the system and its commonly held religious beliefs and has set out his findings in detailed form.

The Bible Fraud, as is stated in its introduction, may be the book foreseen by Nostradamus. It may not. But whether foreseen or not, it will be long remembered. In its extensively documented 272 pages with its 710 endnotes and over 850 bibliographic references, and in the genealogical charts, Tony Bushby challenges, and puts out his proofs, the fundamentals of the belief basis of the institutional Church (or rather Churches). This book is not a theological treatise as such; it is more a historical expose, which reads like a political thriller.

The author puts forward a thesis that the Christian world has been mistaken, has been deceived, for most of the last two thousand years. The basis for his assertions came from original Church documents, which he has carefully pieced together to come up with some somewhat startling conclusions. Some of his sources are well known and include The Forgotten Monarchy of Scotland (itself well worthwhile reading), the Chronicles of Geoffrey of Monmouth and The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, both of the latter being standard reading for me as a child. Others are less well known, and some have been hidden away for centuries. But they are all there and are listed.

You will have to read the book before it is banned or burned (the author tells of book burnings from the second century onwards) to get the full story, but a little can be told here. The first shock is that, as documented by the author, Jesus was fathered by a Roman who later became the Emperor Tiberius, and his mother, the Virgin Mary, was a royal princess by birth. The second is that Jesus was a twin, the other twin being Judas Khrestus.

Tony Bushby sets out to show how the Church managed to merge the two persons into one. And, as naturally follows from the above, Jesus was not really Jewish! The author explains the role played by James the Just, Salome, Mary Magdalene, Lazarus and Martha. He points out that Jesus married three times, once being to his half-sister, Mary Magdalene (who was, in fact, a Princess Maria). Tony Bushby states quite unequivocally that Jesus was not crucified, but that his twin brother Judas was the one to be crucified. The revelations here are quite astonishing.

The King James version of the Bible gets a special mention, as, according to the author, it was redrafted by Sir Francis Bacon (also alleged to have written Shakespeare's plays) who inserted a cipher system of code into the work. This aspect is fascinating.

The suggestion that members of the early Church migrated to Britain has been discussed before but here the author gives very clear specifics of the exodus to Britain and Southern France, and the institution of the Celtic Church in about the year AD37. Glastonbury (of special interest to Grail researchers) is named as the burial place of Joseph of Arimathea and it is stated that "The British Church took precedence over all other Churches" (a position which is consistent with what is contained in Magna Carta). It is stated Jesus became King of Britain and the author documents clearly the residence in Rome where Prince Caradoc, the son of Jesus, lived for some years. He sets out to show the definite connection between Rome and Britain and the involvement of Emperor Constantine and his mother in the institutional development of the Christian Church.

It will be no surprise to reveal that the author queries who actually wrote the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, and states that the Gospel of St. Peter was suppressed by the Church. The role of the Druids in Britain and their involvement in the Church and the early universities (60 in Britain in the first century) is well covered. The above sounds somewhat fantastic, but then so are most revelations.

To answer the inevitable question as to why a Catholic not only read the book but also reviewed it, I can say that I believe all points of view should be made available, no matter how inconvenient or awkward such may be. I may be influenced by my training as a barrister-at-law in this respect, or by my parents, or by both. But the book deserves attention and so does the inevitable debate, which will follow.

There is another message in the book itself. I found it. I hope you do too.

What has been passed down to us as the New Testament is a very confused historical account, yet these facts as presented by the Church of Rome have become matters of faith and dogma based on the deliberate concealment of the truth - a deception the Church is keen to uphold today.

Now, Australian publisher / entrepreneur Tony Bushby has uncovered some of the deceit of the last two millennia in The Bible Fraud - the result of 12 years of painstaking fulltime research. The central thesis is one that other scholars and mystics, as far back as Michelangelo and Sir Francis Bacon, have known about and referred to in codes and ciphers: that the figure we know as Jesus Christ is a composite character.

According to Bushby, the real story is about the twin brothers, the illegitimate sons of the Roman Emperor Tiberius and Princess Mariamne Herod, the granddaughter of King Herod, who has Nabatean Arab/Hasmodean ancestry. The two boys were brought up in the Essene community; indeed, the Essenes had a prophecy about twin Messiahs, so the brothers seemed to fit the bill. The elder, Judas Khrestus, became a sword-wielding Galilean revolutionary ("the Wicked Priest"), while the younger, the Rabbi Jesus (or Yeshu’a), had a ministry with strong links with the Druids of Gaul and Britain and actually became a Druid King.

Bushby analyses many Gospel passages where it seems that two completely different personalities were interwoven. He charts the early genealogies showing that the genetic heritage of the Rabbi Jesus mingled with the Druidic/Celtic lines and was reseeded into the Roman Imperial line several times down to Constantine, and thus he dovetails along the way with Laurence Gardner’s narrative. He also delves into how the Church, along with its dogma and official texts, was created.

Bushby’s thought-provoking book is recommended reading for anyone who is on the search for truth in history.
