The infamous arrest of the Knights Templar was carried out on FridayÂ the 13th of October, 1307. The day lives in the memory of Westerners,Â though they may not know why it is so “dangerous.” It actually goesÂ back to the Hebrew Bible, the book of Esther, when the evil HamanÂ persuaded Esther’s husband, the King of Babylon, to arrest and execute herÂ people, the Jews, en masse. Ultimately, I think scholars will agreeÂ that the faith of the Templars was based on ancient “Ebionite” orÂ “Judaic-Christian” roots that included the full humanity of JesusÂ (including marriage and parenthood).
I’ve just finished reading two very interesting books, following up onÂ the recent airing of a documentary on the History Channel called “TheÂ Grail in America.” The basic text supporting the film was ScottÂ Wolter’s “The Hooked X,” while the novel, Cabal of the WestfordÂ Knight by David S. Brody, is a very informative follow up. BothÂ books fully support the idea that the “great secret” described in myÂ Tarot Trumps and the Holy Grail was the survival of descendants ofÂ Mary Magdalene and Jesus.– It’s interesting that artifacts on theÂ east coast of the US (New England) and Canada have surfaced andÂ support the claims that heirs of Templar traditions (engineering andÂ sacred geometry, among others) attempted to settle in the “New World”Â a century before Columbus. Assertions have been made for decades thatÂ some Templars survived and fled by ship to Scotland (which was underÂ interdict at the time of their arrest). Perhaps their descendants wereÂ eager to find a place that was beyond reach of the Vatican and theÂ Inquisition… why not sail west?
peace and well-being,
