Much has been written recently about the marriage of Jesus and Mary Magdalene, who Jesus was, whether he and Mary had children, and what became of them. The Hidden Descent of Jesus is the first book that can answer those questions in amazingly accurate detail. Unique to any book on the subject, this contains full genealogical charts that trace the messianic offspring, historically named Tamar, Joshua and Joseph, and their lineage through 600 years through to Arthur Pendragon.
Gardner's unrivalled access to Vatican archives reveal Christian manuscripts dating back to the 2nd century that document Mary as the 'bride of Christ' and Jesus's heirs who became very influential within the Roman Empire. In the years following the crucifixion they were hunted down. Four hundred years later, the New Testament gospels of Mathew, Mark and Luke were compiled removing all reference to the messianic marriage and bloodline, but the older gospels still document their legacy.
Tracing the messianic line through 600 years since Jesus's crucifixion, Gardner explains how documentation of the messianic line moved into Grail romance literature of King Arthur, through and how the mythology of Arthur was therefore aligned with that of Jesus in messianic tradition as both Once and Future Kings.
Using new and previously unpublished documentary archives, The Hidden Descent from Jesus traces the detailed history of the descendants of Jesus and how the main ambition of the Roman Church, was to destroy the most fundamental elements of the original Christian movement.
