This is the narrative of the intrigue that Dan Brown failed to address. More important than the Da Vinci Code it's an account of past events that has been invisible for more than 2,000 years. It takes us right back to the very root of Christianity and if accurate, could shake almost everything that Christians take for granted. It's the account of the people who were dearest to Jesus, the people who shared his lineage.

In this film Robert Beckford will decrypt the Bible and other ancient scriptures to tell for the first time the actual story of Jesus' bloodline because he thinks Jesus had brothers and sisters, cousins, aunts, uncles and nephews. A huge widespread family tree that was there for at least 300 years after his demise and took large part in the establishment of Christianity, that the authentic idea was too threatening for the new religion, and that the formal Church kidnapped their campaign and then made an attempt to remove them from the story.

The very first words of this new belief, as uttered by Jesus and his followers, are contained in the Bible. For many people, it's truly the word of God. But dispersed across the pages of this book are some puzzling allusions to a group of people very close to Jesus, his own clan and his dearest associates. But strangely, they barely get recognition at all.

One of the Roman Catholic and Orthodox Church's largest annual celebration day is that of the birth of Mary, the mother of Jesus. Feasts are held all over the world, her portraits are proudly displayed, but one thing is never commented - her actual blood family. The whole inquiry about the existence of Jesus' brothers and sisters in the gospels is very much explained and associated with the identity of Jesus and his mother. And as Jesus starts to be evermore perceived as godlike and Mary transforms evermore into eternal virgin, then it becomes unorthodox to say that these are typical brothers and sisters.

I've watched this and you are relying on the children of the devil to get information. This is deception.

Please read everything on my FB page..."Dawnswansophia Marie Kellerwisdom". I tell you who the Antichrist is. I prove also who is the two witnesses. To prove to you that I'm telling the truth, please Google Jewish, English, and simple gematria. There is a site that has all three. Put my full name in, it will equal = Jesus Christ, and = Holy spirit, and Sophia wisdom. I'm not saying I'm Jesus. I'm Sophia wisdom. My ex boyfriend Mario Foxbaker = Mary Magdalene. Mario has had a Nick name from an early age. Which was Chicken. If you put Mario Foxbaker Chicken it equals =two witnesses. My Nick name from around the same age that Mario got him was Swan. If you put in Greg Charles Dawn Marie it = two witnesses. Greg = Noah. And he is my Wonderful Uncle.

If only one could go back in time to view events of history first hand... until then it will be most difficult (or impossible) to know the accurate history of much of anything. Starting at an early age, when I knew first hand of an event being reported on in a newspaper or tv news, the reporting was inaccurate. To expect otherwise from 2000 years ago is ridiculous.

Even so the reporting does denote that something occurred. God gave us all a brain to use. Or for the arrogantly anti-deist, God designed us to each have a brain. Some choose to stop short in their thinking, even if that is the result of much research or very little.

It seems one of the most difficult position of mankind or man in particular to take is: "I don't know because there are a number of things that cannot be known...or known for sure." (hard and fast like knowing there is a rock in your hand because you can see it and feel it).

Two traits of the nonbelievers are: 1) Arrogance of their claimed knowing there is no God, which is ridiculous since they cannot know if there is or isn't a God of some type, possibly not accurately described in the old texts. 2) The claim that religion is the cause of all or most human suffering. This is as ridiculous as saying guns kill people. It is the evil people that hide behind a banner of a religion that cause all the damage, just the same as the requirement of a person to pull the trigger of a gun. Who is to say that such evil people would not have found some other way to cause destruction and mayhem? I believe they would, they will, and they have. There is a certain sect of lucifarians who desire to wipe out the majority of the planets population. Read their plans for you on the Georgia Guidestones. Just do a search for that and you can read them without traveling to Georgia. Many of the wars were and are corporate wars. Greedy weasels standing behind their corporations going after resources that didn't belong to them.

What ever the problem, it is a person behind it.

Religion has been at the center of enlightment. A force for good in a community. A true person of faith is humble, helpful, conscientious, tolerant, patient, and so forth. Many people fall short. Is that the fault of the religion?

Now the socialists of the world want to destroy God, religion, etc. blaming it for all the worlds ills. Yet what is more ill than socialism? WW2 was not a religious war but an anti religious war. Prior and during. Stalin wiped out about 60 million, many of who were believers. True socialism, govt being the god of man, cannot coexist with the idea of a higher power than govt so it endeavors to wipe out religion and separate man from God.

You see this in the socialist run media. The elites who own the media and most everything else deny God to be their own god and desire to force their will upon the rest of us.

And the arrogant nonbelievers are jumping head first, welcoming this enslavement to someone else's rule, finding it more palatable than the occasional misguided religious person who dares to mention that a nonbeliever is making unwise choices. Brilliant.

I have not seen this documentary before and I appreciate the fact that it is here and that I get a chance to watch it. To the people that think it's a waste of bandwidth..why are you here watching the "waste of bandwidth"? So you can have something to complain about ? There are many more people that need to see this and get an idea as to what has been taking place. I am sure there are a great many more that feel they have been hoodwinked, as I certainly feel that way. Thank you for keeping the documentary up!

Jesus is true man and true God. He was no angel who can deceive people by acting a role just like in the book of Tobit. He is a normal human being, biologically part of the animal kingdom. Fact is he was born in a manger, which is a place where livestock is kept. All else about his becoming human like waiting time for adulthood had to happen; No instant transformations or short cuts for Jesus.

About his being true God is more about having the fullness of God in him. He does not separate himself from God but rather showed the WAY to the Father instead. This was his mission. He did declare that we are "gods" but that means we are living hosts or temples of the Holy Spirit. We exist to do the Will of God and persevere in love for one another.

No way did he act independent from the divine. Instead, he had to accomplish his mission by fulfilling the Word, or the written prophesies about his arrival as messiah. Unlike Moses who patterned the rise of the nation of Israel to Egyptian rule by Law, Jesus wrote God's Laws in the hearts of men. He taught men how to be holy.

I have no doubt in my mind that Jesus or Yeshua ben Josef or Jmmanuel had family. There are more interesting subjects on Jesus that is not discussed here namely that of his origin and actual life events. For one, it seems recent findings have seen that Jesus never actually was on the cross. This may come as a total shock to most Christians but may sound completely logical to most Asians whose first objection to the whole idea of Christianity would be why the savior wouldn't save himself. Of course that is a very non-spiritual viewpoint, but nonetheless, it would seem more in character for a spiritual Master to flee in to hermitage or other lands rather than to subjugate himself to torture and a gastly death. I think the martyrdom that he is bestowed is more a side-effect of his presence, the followers wanted it and thought that the people needed it, even though Jmmanuel wanted nothing of it. And so someone did die in his place, just not him. Later on most of his teachings were hijacked and used. His teachings was originally much more gnostic. "We are all God", would be a centerpiece in his teachings, hence the phrase: 1 Chorintians 16:9 "Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you". For any of you who would like to know more about this see: "The Crucifixion ruse" by Courtney Brown, Ph.D on YouTube. I haven't found a book released on this yet, as this is so new information. But there are other public people who have supported this idea, for instance Andrew Bartzis, an akashic record channeler. You can also find "The Talmud of Jmmanuel", as a book or on Youtube which is an interesting contribution to a version of his story, albeit still portraits his traditional death many new views of his teachings are described there, of course from the subjective view of Billy Meier, a renowned alien contactee. In the end, it all comes down to what you care to believe. Evidence is short on either side of the story.

The Bible doesn’t need defending or protecting from historical criticism. The Bible stands on its own when it comes to historical perspective. This is because the New Testament documents are better-preserved and more numerous than any other ancient writings. NAME ONE THATS MORE ACCURATE.... I DARE ANYONE... and show academic solid proof not some looney bin Documentary...

Here's is a few tests EVERY SCHOLAR ON THE GLOBE uses to figure out if ANY document is of authenticity. The Bibliographic Test, The Internal Test, The External Test. I could go on and on BUT, Basically, Bib test- is the document in question the original and how long before we have another copy. (Yes less that 100 yrs.), Int test: Do we have eyewitnesses, and do we have eyewitnesses that were NOT WITH the values of the document in question. (yes), Ext Test- does archeology and SECULAR writers support the document in question (Yes). Just a few tests we have here. This is what modern science and the latest Forensic document examination analysis has give us. Homer and Sophocles in reliability and accuracy.

Interesting documentary. Several pretty good books have come out on this subject in the last few years.

Despite thousands of books and billions of words, little proof for the existence of Jesus exists.

I do agree with the theme of this documentary of the changes by the Roman Empire christians from the Jewish christians. How much historical accuracy any of the gospels contains people will debate for centuries.

While whether Jesus had brothers and sisters remains an interesting question, nothing at this point will change the story as written by the Roman Empire and believed by billions.

And in my opinion, the rabbinical Jews didn't reject the Jewish Christians because the Jewish Christians deviated too much from traditional Judaism, but the opposite. Jewish Christians pretty much adhered to other Jewish theological views, as the Dead Sea scrolls show. But the rabbinical Jews no longer resembled traditional Biblical Jews, because they had become Romanized.

People need to keep in mind that the Romans ruled Palestine before the birth of Jesus and had expansionist imperialist ambitions all the while. The Romans expected obedience and enforced this with the sword. Watch Life of Brian if you don't believe me.

Some Jews like the Dead Sea Essenes and Jesus rebelled, but the wealthier Jews cooperated with the Roman Empire, just like the wealthier dictators today cooperate with the American Empire, while it slaughters the citizens of various countries.

Rabbinical Jews made some major changes to Jewish laws to fit in with the Roman Empire, including abolishing God's prohibition against charging interest, by Rabbi Hillel inventing the prosbul, a contract where the borrower agrees to allow the lender to charge interest.

People should remember that "organized" religion always serves the powerful.

Sorry, but JESUS did not have any children-HE IS the Creator Who came in the flesh to die for sinful humanity. Obviously people will believe anything. Those who "hate" God or who do not believe in Creationism, will try their "best" to do pump out enormous amounts of systematic lies to bate humans into thinking that there is no Creator Who made the heavens & the earth & all that is in them. The Creator created a race called humans so that like the natural family structure that we see, this Awesome and Mighty, Majestic, Wonderous CREATOR too wanted a family. We show very little interest in this Mighty Creator because most people heads can't fathom this, but in reality, He intended that we see Him through the eyes of our heart, which is faith. There comes a Divine Supernatural pull to know this Wonderous CREATOR in EVERY human heart, which if given rightful place, the emptiness that humans fill up with silly pleasures that only last for a minute or two would be completely gone. There is no emptiness in knowing our Creator, no fear, no guessing at everything, Just the pure bliss of knowing how safe and sound you are in His LOVE.

Hmmmm....... All believers in one of the thousands of gods and goddesses that men have created over the thousands of years of human evolution, I see. If humans have been evolving for thousands of years, how is it 'God' waited until just a couple of thousand years ago to show up? Think of all the pain and suffering that humans have and will experience, and for what? Children not old enough to walk picked up by a Tsunami and ........ Well, answer me just one more question regarding 'God', and that is, why would a perfect 'God' create creatures that all must eat each other to survive, and usually alive until we mastered fire. How can perfection create imperfection? Reality fits rather awkwardly with religion I find, but someone has to bring you high flyers back down here to earth.

Come to think of it, the mission of Jesus was to show God in man. He had to be born of a woman. weaned, raised and even worked to survive. He was quite ordinary and not outwardly privileged in any sense. His tithe was his ministry and he devoted 3 years or so after he turned 30 years old.

When Jesus touched the hearts of his disciples and apostles with deep respect and love, he declared that whatever you do to the least of his brethren, you do it to him. Thus the mission of Jesus is removed from a personality cult. In effect, Jesus could be in any follower of Christ who is no longer guided by his fellow man but by the Holy Spirit. The Son of God or Christ is a collection of individuals who are spiritually connected with one another.

Fact is the second coming is not an individual's arrival but the fulfillment or completion of Christ’s body on Earth. Peace on Earth happens as an effect of men uniting with God. There is no need for so many conditions to attain peace because God is one, and if all would unite with God, then they would be one or united in good work as a consequence.

When one doesn't meet God, Sri Krishna, with his/her spiritual practise it's simply useless. There is only one reason to become a disciple of Jesus Christ and that is to meet the Father, Sri Krishna. Hare Krishna!

Jesus was the son of Cleopatra and Centurion Titus Pullo ( but
thought to be the son of Julius Caesar ) ...

Mary and Joseph were Cleopatra's most trusted servants , and
they took young Jesus on the silk road , to go hide from Octavian
and study in an Ashram in Kashmir !!!

As far as religious documentaries go, this is a great presentation,
because it goes to the heart of the issue; who was Jesus Christ, and what did he stand for. By exposing the falsification and corruption of what Christianity has become, it does not diminish the divinity of Jesus, but instead embraces the divinity in all of us, and what it is we should be striving for. (the message is more important than the messenger himself) As Bruce Lee so eloquently stated in Enter the Dragon, "it is like a finger pointing a way to the moon. Concentrate on the finger, and you miss all the heavenly glory". Take care, and best wishes everyone!

This is the falling away and has never happened before . All of the naysayers that are being so logical with their "there is no G-d".. This is one of the prophesies of the end times. The world is turning away from G-d because they claim there is no such thing and only idiots would believe in such a thing. These are wonderful times !

Although the falsely attributed quote to Buddha, "Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.", it does make a great deal of sense considering that all tralatitious scripture is both apocryphal and redacted.

"One of the Roman Catholic and Orthodox Church's largest annual celebration day is that of the birth of Mary, the mother of Jesus." The above article stated. Can anyone tell me where is it in the Bible mentions when Mary was born? To celebrate her birth, you must know the date. I do not want to watch something for 1hr and 40 min. based on personal opinions.

Why are "we" still wasting time, energy and resources. On a topic that is now widely understood as a corrupt fallacy, designed to conquer and control society?

Furthermore one that continues to perpetuate war and terror.
All in the face of preventable hunger, and other such sufferings.

All these "closed religions" only teach hoarding, amongst their own communities. But as well indoctrinate hate and intolerance. Hate and ignorance that Breeds entire societies of mental disorders / dysfunctions...

{puke}

I really don't mean any offence, and I understand why people don't seek / adopt Current moral laws and value systems... learning "new stuff" requires energy.
