A Message From Glenn Kimball:
My first book was entitled "Hidden Stories of the Childhood of Jesus", which was strictly the historical accounts of the childhood of the most famous man who ever lived. This is the greatest non-fiction book for Christmas ever. At the time I always wondered why more people didn't know about the rest of the life of Jesus. I had studied the early life of Jesus after meeting two priests in South America who were in a sort of exile from the Vatican Security Force. They would tell me of manuscripts and histories that lay buried in the seventeen miles of vaults beneath the Vatican around a poker table. The book is the real Christmas Story beginning with the great grandfather of Jesus and ending with the death of Jesus' father Joseph when Jesus was about fourteen years old.
The "Hidden Story of the Childhood of Jesus" comes directly from the records written by Jesus' two brothers. They were included in the body of documents called the "Only Rule of Our Faith", which was the original Bible before the Bible. The first half of the book is a historical explanation of the ancient texts and the second half of the book contains the actual story of the family of Jesus translated from the ancient manuscripts themselves. The book is deliberately very small. At the time I felt one of the reasons more people didn't know about the histories of Jesus' life was because they were buried in huge ponderous anthologies and unintelligible scholarly texts. The scholarly historians, who have verified the ancient manuscripts, have largely been atheists and therefore not credible to believers. The Believers have shut the doors to Extra-Biblical documents and therefore haven't looked for additional history for themselves. This book is purely historical, and though I am a believer, it allows "the cards to fall where they may".
WHY HAVEN'T WE HEARD OF THESE THINGS BEFORE?
The ancient Jews from 300 BC began the exclusion of ancient manuscripts. They invented the word "heresy" and from the time of the Macabean movement all the books outside the five books of Moses were banned from synagogues. The Christian Old Testament came in 73 BC when a council of 84 Priests had to travel to the great Library of Alexandria in Egypt to retrieve copies from the 740,000 scrolls that were there before the great fire in 63 BC. Amazingly the Old Testament was located in Palestine at the time. They had to travel to get copies of the Old Testament because of the ban on the rest of history. However, that delegation left the majority of Jewish and Christian history on the table at that time. That is why the Bible refers to some 84 ancient books that are not included in the Bible.
The Christians largely came from the population of Jews who already were accustomed to banning books. There were more fragmented Christian Churches after the crucifixion than there are today. Each little town had their own collection of writings and traditions. The reason for the Nicene Council was to stop the warring factions on the church and vote of the most popular of the documents found among the local churches. Books that were left out include but are not limited to:
The rest of the letters of Paul that were not so popular.
Most of the books written by the brothers of Jesus.
There was a large conflict between the churches of Rome and Greece and the church of Jerusalem where His brothers lived and governed. This included the original Bible called the "Only Rule of Our Faith" and the Gospel of Thomas recently rediscovered.
The second half of the Gospel of Mark.
The three apocalyptic books written by James.
All the books written by women, including the Gospel of Mary Magdalene.
The books that contained the birth, life and marriage of Joseph and the Virgin Mary.
All the books written by Jesus, that largely came from societies that were still foreign to early Christianity.
Rome knew of the great Druid University where Jesus lived and taught for a short time. There were many leaders in Rome, including Pontius Pilate, who were educated in England and knew about additional ancient works of Jesus.
Jesus' grandmother "Saint Ann" was born in England where her family (Joseph of Arimathea) owned a large interest in the tin and lead mines.
The writings of the Essene movement, from which we get the Dead Sea Scrolls. The Essenes were communal societies who were far too liberal for the conservative churches after Jesus.
The Gnostic scriptures, which came from a group that by the third century AD of the Bible were in disarray and had fallen from the respect of their peers. The Gnostics left us in the second century AD the magnificent Nag Hammadi Library on the banks of the Nile River.
The Roman stories of Jesus, which came from the converted members of the Roman Army at the time of the death of Jesus. We have great copies of the writings of Nicodemus from these texts.
The Nicene Council was designed to resolve the conflict between great Arius who advocated and investigation of the extensive number of books still left in local churches and libraries, and the second and third generation apostolic fathers who advocated a very conservative position with very few books.
The second book is "Hidden Politics of the Crucifixion", which is the amazing account of the real Pontius Pilate, Caesar, Herod and the three men who were responsible for the actual death of Jesus. This book contains the letters of Pilate to Rome at the death of Jesus, the letters between Herod and Pilate over the death of Jesus and excerpts from the writings of Nicodemus who chronicled the story of Joseph of Arimathea during the events of the crucifixion. Joseph of Arimathea had been the "acting father" of Jesus by Jewish law after the Virgin Mary's husband Joseph had died. These letters will shock the world. They tell the whole world that Rome and Herod knew a great deal more than we have credited them with. This book has not yet been released from the press, but will be in the next 45 days.
My new book will be called the "Hidden King" or the real story of King Arthur. I could spend days telling you BANNER HEADLINES about that one. King Arthur was the first of the Princes of Wales from which we derive European and Asian royal bloodlines. This second King Arthur was a direct descendant of the family of Jesus. He continued the great mining tradition of the family of Jesus from England.
My research has appeared on the Discovery Channel, Arts and Entertainment Channel (Ancient Mysteries of the Bible) and on the Learning Channel. They have even shown the cover of my first book. I have been feeding them research for a couple of years through David Stirland.
I have a new web site "ancientmanuscripts.com, which will eventually house a portion of the five million ancient manuscripts on this subject. At this moment the site is the home of the Ancient American Magazine, which chronicles the most recent of the archeological discoveries in the country. Most archeology takes 20 years to come to the attention of the public and longer to get into our textbooks. The discoveries of this year are amazing. That is a subject for many completely different shows. That web site is only a month old and is still in the creation phase.
I have been the guest on 50 radio shows around the country in the last year including CBS nationwide with Elliot Stein. I have just begun to get exposure in television with the syndicated program on KUSK out of Arizona with Tanya Mock.
It is important to note that we are really talking about a huge--diverse group of histories and interests of Ancient Manuscripts and myself. The first are the Christmas stories of the childhood of Jesus and His family, contained in my first book "Hidden Stories of the Childhood of Jesus". The second is the Easter story of the politics surrounding the crucifixion. The third is the great story of King Arthur. The forth are the stories of Archeology in the Americas from the Ancient American Magazine.
