‘There is a new understanding about the real meaning of Christianity, and many books have been published about the New Theology.’

 

With over one hundred line illustrations, this 275 page book is digitally printed and perfect bound in a square 210 mm format. The cover also features a colour picture of The Earth Goddess, or Lady Wisdom.

Lady Wisdom – the Lady of the Doves – was the Goddess believed in by the family of Jesus and Jesus’ followers. They also believed in the Father God El, rather than the God Yahweh, and this book attempts to tell the whole story.

Independent scholar Frances J. Grant has spent several years researching, writing and illustrating this beautifully produced book.

 ‘Quelle’. The Hidden Gospel

It had been noticed for hundreds of years that there were numerous parallel passages in the Gospels of St. Matthew, St. Mark and St. Luke, but it required the tenacity of Canon B.H. Streeter almost 100 years ago to extract the verses concerned and to re-establish that St. Matthew and St. Luke used St. Mark's Gospel plus an original text available at the time.

Streeter referred to this original document as "Q".  "Q" being a shortened form of "Quelle", meaning 'the source' in German.

It is important to remember that many thousands of Jewish people were on Jesus' side of the arguement. The arguement, which clearly appears in "Q", was with the Jewish authorities.

As these first writings were in use throughout the Roman Empire for at least the first thirty years after the death of Jesus, many of the congregation listening to "Q" would have been 'living witnesses' to Jesus Himself. So these writings are likely to be extremely accurate.

These words were thought to be of such importance by St. Matthew and St. Luke that they obviously felt compelled to hide these words until someone like Streeter would realise their truths.

Digitally printed 61 page booklet with commentary and illustrations by F.J.Grant.

The Compassionate One

 

The Compassionate One - the Female Divine  -  the Holy Spirit - as refered to by Jesus, was deliberately confused by the Christian Elders!

 So we became lost!

The Great Goddess of Europe, with Her Temple as one of the seven Wonders of the World, was destroyed !

Mary the mother of Jesus took Her titles.

The Holy Spirit was referred to as male ! The Patriarchy under Paul had won!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Compassionate One                                                   Icon of the Virgin Mary

From an ivory statue

6th century BC Syria

 

Jesus had wanted us to worship the Father God  El and the Mother Goddess - the Holy Spirit .

 When the first followers fled Jerusalem, and Jesus’ uncle Joseph of Arimathaea taught Jesus’ beliefs in Glastonbury, it fitted so exactly with the beliefs of the  Britons – that they immediately claimed that their Mother Goddess Brigit was the 'Holy Spirit' of Jesus and had been the Midwife at Jesus’ birth.

 Whilst interestingly - ‘El’ in Welsh means the - ‘the Shining Ones’.

The Celtic Druids studied  the Greek language and the Greeks had been in control in Palestine previous to the Romans. Jesus and His relatives would know of the Greeks religious opinions.

 The Great God El and the Holy Spirit!

 

We make hand printed books to increase people’s understanding of the Early Celtic Church at Glastonbury.
