Summary

This extraordinary document represents a new form of historical research and straightens out many open questions and misinterpretations. It takes the form of direct dialogues between a modern researcher and a member of the Qumran Essene community. Alive around the time of Christ, this community has become the focus of ideas about the connection of Jesus' teachings to earlier traditions. This book gives a full description of the nature and purpose of the community and the birth and upbringing of Jesus and John the Baptist. Also, it gives Essene renderings of Key Old Testament stories concerning Moses, Ezekiel, Daniel, and others, plus startling insights into ancient history. This information is candid and for real, even about the Dead Sea Scrolls, and many Biblical images and statements are corrected and added to.

I've listened to this so many times

One of my favourite audiobooks of all time. I enjoy Dolores' work immensely and always feel like I've had my brain stretched every time. Fascinating and incredible.

A reassessment of biblical history

Many years ago I recall having read a book about someone who, under hypnosis, recounted a past life as one who lived in the Essene community. It wasn't until I came across this audio book that I realised it was the same title by Dolores Cannon, and I found it every bit as stimulating as the printed version.

This book is essentially one that is divided into two parts. The first section details the customs, beliefs and practices of the Essenes as they were recalled by a subject under hypnosis. It is intriguing that Dolores was able to extract a number of details about what life was like in that particular time period, as little is known about the Essenes and information from both archaeology and the Dead Sea Scrolls only provides a limited picture.

The second half of the book focuses on the life and ministry of Jesus and challenges a number of popularly accepted and dogmatic concepts, in particular the true origins of Christianity and the need to accept him as a guide and not a deity. The connection that Christ had to the Essenes has not been widely acknowledged, for which there may be reasons to do with how the church has attempted to control the narrative about his life and purpose. This book will make you rethink what you have been taught.

Feels Authentic

Content is probably 80% on the Essenes and 20% (the last 20%) on Jesus. The conversation between Dolores and the Essene comes across as natural and believable. Plenty of interesting relevations and things unlikely to be made up.

A ‘must read’

I have listened to this so many times & have not tired of it. I highly recommend it and you don’t have to be a very spiritual person for it to appeal to you, just open minded.

Full of fascinating details

Great story. Love Delores Cannon. Poor choice of male narrator for the part of Sadee. Heavy southern accent did not match well with the character in my opinion.

Finally some sense - it all resonates

It so resonates and makes sense. I was always at a loss with many of the different religious institutions teachings and “knew” in my heart that things have been misinterpreted - as so much was contradictory (eg I never understood that the church was supposed to teach about love but then used fear to stay in power and control, and much worse in older ages, and so much more). It is heartening to hear another version where women and men were considered equal and marriage, diverse or sex and other choices about life were seen a lot more sensible in terms of mutual consent and agreements with an elder system making decisions. So much kindness and love and compassion. A fascinating account and it helped me a lot. I feel like I can breathe. I so wish more of us can be open to other viewpoints and really see how history has been changing us humans - that we can all understand more and more what’s happened to us and why we are now where we are with our planet suffering where it is. I just love Dolores apt way of questioning the subject and so skilfully navigating the many difficult and surprising revelations. She is a master at work uncovering so much information, many hypnotists would miss. Plus all the extensive research she has spent doing to aim to verify as much as is possible to find. Astounding work. A must read.
