How I wish I had been able to research the many references in this
book!. I have studied the history of the Bible most of my life and
there seems to be no doubt that the entire New Testament is a
fabrication created by Edict of Constantine, a ruthless
dictator not unlike Saddam Hussein.
Once one recognizes that there is not just one distortion but also
thousands of distortions, how can any statement be honored??. The Bible Fraud should be read by everyone. Whether Jesus
was one of twins, a first report to me, is relatively immaterial. That
he lived and was the foundation for the Myth of Christianity is the
fascinating story. The fact is that facts in the Bible are not
Intelligent thinking individuals need to read this. I have made it
required reading for all my students.

BEHIND THE FRAUD
What was the Church trying to hide?
When I first spoke to a close Christian friend of mine about the
publishing of Tony Bushby’s
The Bible Fraud, her reaction was one that many Christians
have expressed, and one that made me aghast. She didn't want the
book available because it would "persuade them away from the Bible
and the word of God." Further discussions with her and many other
Christians around the world about The Bible Fraud all
result in the Bible being quoted as the ultimate reference for the
apparent "words of God," and therefore the basis for their
arguments. The problem lies in that they believe the Bible is
If we examine the oldest known Bible to date, the "Sinai Bible"
housed in the British Museum (I believe that, during his
many years of research, Tony had a private viewing of this priceless
book), we find a staggering 14,800 differences from today’s
Bible and yet it still remains the word of God?
As Tony points out, the history of our ‘genuine’ Bibles is a
convoluted one. Firstly we cannot be sure that we have the full
version as it was originally intended. In 1415 the Church of Rome
took an extraordinary step to destroy all knowledge of two second
century Jewish books that it said contained the true name of Jesus Christ.
The Antipope Benedict XIII firstly singled
out for condemnation a secret Latin treatise called "Mar Yesu"
and then issued instructions to destroy all copies of the Book
of Elxai. The Rabbinic fraternity once held the destroyed
manuscripts with great reverence for they were comprehensive
original records reporting the life of Rabbi Jesus.
Later, Pope Alexander VI ordered all copies of the Talmud
destroyed, with the Spanish Grand Inquisitor Tomas de Torquemada
(1420-98) responsible for the elimination of 6,000 volumes at
Solomon Romano (1554) also burnt many thousands of Hebrew
scrolls and, in 1559, every Hebrew book in the city of Prague was
confiscated. The mass destruction of Jewish books included hundreds
of copies of the Old Testament and caused the irretrievable loss of
many original handwritten documents...

"In the First Century, the Druidic institutions were the
largest in the world, both in size and in attendance. In Britain,
alone they had a recorded number of sixty universities and over
60,000 enrolled students....Ancient Britain had acquired a stature
with institutions of learning that rivaled those of today and many
elected to study there. Greek and Roman testimony stated that the
noble and wealthy of Athens and Rome sent their children to study
law, science and religion in Britain ..."
As the population becomes more sophisticated, the Internet faster, and
the connections between political alliances break down, it becomes
possible for many researchers to get access to documents heretofore
buried in the realms of antiquity, and, of course, the basement of the Vatican.
The dusty realms of the past seem to be shaking away the clouds of
time, and the most curious information glistens. Those of us brave
and curious enough are enchanted to have discovered a golden vein of
data that can change how we view ourselves and the world.
Ancient manuscripts, from the dead sea scrolls and
India, to almost forgotten writings of the Druids,
tell a far different story about the beginnings of Christianity
- a story deeply interesting, intriguing, and fascinating.
There is a truth about a man named Jesus, and his story, not only is
inspiring, but leaves us wondering -- exactly what did he really
discover, where did his quest eventually lead him, and what burning
message did he really have?
The Author, Tony Bushby, of
The Bible Fraud, has written a masterpiece. He fills in
major blanks of history, and describes an unbelievable panorama of
political intrigue, marriage, and bloodlines, that brings light to
the entire political structure of our world, as well as the earliest
beginnings of Christianity. Apparently the real Jesus lit a fire, a
fire that inspired others to the point of fanaticism, which turned
the world into a religious political nightmare - and through that
nightmare, what is known as The New Testament was born - not out of
any love of the truth, but out of a desperate need to stop the
religious insanity that had developed over 300 years after the real
Jesus left his life.
And, Jesus didn't leave like we're told. In a twisted story
that begins in Israel, and takes us to Britain and then to Egypt we
find an honorable, spiritual man on a holy quest. A
man who, it seems, discovered something that he did want to tell the
world, but hardly got the chance. A man who wanted to
share all the secrets with the People, but who became so embroiled
in the "control and domination" political structure of that time,
that he was unable to give us more than just a hint. A
man who seemed to have defied everything and everyone, but the
question remains, what was it he really wanted to tell us?
The political masters of the time buried it, burned it, destroyed it
in every way they could, and what we have left is the New Testament
- pieces of a story that when put together make no sense, even to
biblical scholars - until now. Mr. Bushby does the
impossible; he has given us many of the missing pieces about a story
that had the potential to change the world.
The good news for Christians is that Jesus was literally, at
that time, the Son of God, but the bad news is that the title
"Son of God" meant something entirely different then than
it does today.
The Emperor Constantine, in 325 A.D. established the
Christian religion, but how many people have had the privilege
to know what that entailed, what records were brought to the
meeting, who argued for what cause, and how it was all settled? How
many people know the political and religious strife at the time, and
what it meant to burn books, and records - records that apparently
had already been corrupted through the religious competition of the
Who knows how bloodthirsty Constantine was? How many people he
killed, including members of his family. And, what was at stake?.
The time period between the real Jesus and the fabrication of the truth in the Council of Nicaea was full
of turmoil, for apparently, some of what Jesus wanted to say
did get out, and the crowd that heard it repeated it, embellished
it, and then the ignorant made stories up about it. There were
confused versions, and heated debates, because by the time
Constantine made use of it, it was already a big moneymaking
Although I'm familiar with the ever-growing stories of the Merovignian Blood Lines in books such as "Holy Blood,
Holy Grail," I found The Bible Fraud to
offer far more factual and pertinent data, along with a much-needed
explanation of many areas of our past that need to be thoroughly

One question that will be asked by readers of
The Bible Fraud is "Who is
Tony Bushby?", the author of this momentous work. In a way it is
like an earlier generation asking "Who is John Galt?" Tony Bushby,
after twelve years of painstaking research, has questioned and
challenged the system and its commonly held religious beliefs and
has set out his findings in detailed form.
The Bible Fraud, as is stated in its introduction, may
be the book foreseen by Nostradamus. It may not. But whether
foreseen or not, it will be long remembered. In its extensively
documented 272 pages with its 710 endnotes and over 850
bibliographic references, and in the genealogical charts, Tony
challenges, and puts out his proofs, the fundamentals of the belief
basis of the institutional Church (or rather
Churches). This book is not a theological treatise as such;
it is more a historical expose, which reads like a
The author puts forward a thesis that the Christian world has
been mistaken, has been deceived, for
most of the last two thousand years. The basis for his
assertions came from original Church documents, which he has
carefully pieced together to come up with some somewhat startling
conclusions. Some of his sources are well known and include The Forgotten Monarchy of Scotland (itself well worthwhile
reading), the Chronicles of Geoffrey of Monmouth and The Anglo-Saxon
Chronicle, both of the latter being standard reading for me
as a child. Others are less well known, and some have been hidden
away for centuries. But they are all there and are listed.
You will have to read the book before it is banned or burned
(the author tells of book burnings from the second century onwards) to
get the full story, but a little can be told here. The first shock
is that, as documented by the author, Jesus was fathered by a
Roman who later became the Emperor Tiberius, and his mother,
the Virgin Mary, was a royal princess by birth. The
second is that Jesus was a twin, the other twin being
Tony Bushby sets out to show how the Church managed to merge
the two persons into one. And, as naturally follows from the above,
Jesus was not really Jewish! The author explains the role
played by James the Just, Salome, Mary Magdalene,
Lazarus and Martha. He points out that Jesus
married three times, once being to his half-sister, Mary
Magdalene (who was, in fact, a Princess Maria). Tony Bushby
states quite unequivocally that Jesus was not crucified, but that his
twin brother Judas was the one to be crucified. The
revelations here are quite astonishing.
The King James version of the Bible gets a special
mention, as, according to the author, it was redrafted by Sir
Francis Bacon (also alleged to have written Shakespeare's plays)
who inserted a cipher system of code into the work. This aspect is
The suggestion that members of the early Church migrated to Britain
has been discussed before but here the author gives very clear
specifics of the exodus to Britain and Southern France, and the
institution of the Celtic Church in about the year
Glastonbury (of special interest to Grail researchers)
is named as the burial place of Joseph of Arimathea and it is
stated that "The British Church took precedence over all other
Churches" (a position which is consistent with what is contained
in Magna Carta). It is stated Jesus became King of
Britain and the author documents clearly the residence in Rome where
Prince Caradoc, the son of Jesus, lived for some
years. He sets out to show the definite connection between Rome and
Britain and the involvement of Emperor Constantine and his mother in
the institutional development of the Christian Church.
It will be no surprise to reveal that the author queries who actually
wrote the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, and states that
Gospel of St. Peter was suppressed by the Church.
The role of the Druids in Britain and their involvement in the
Church and the early universities (60 in Britain in the first
century) is well covered. The above sounds somewhat fantastic, but
then so are most revelations.
To answer the inevitable question as to why a Catholic not only read
the book but also reviewed it, I can say that I believe all points
of view should be made available, no matter how inconvenient or
awkward such may be. I may be influenced by my training as a
barrister-at-law in this respect, or by my parents, or by both. But
the book deserves attention and so does the inevitable debate, which
There is another message in the book itself. I found it. I hope you do

What has been passed down to us as the New Testament is a very
confused historical account, yet these facts as presented by the
Church of Rome have become matters of faith and dogma
based on the deliberate concealment of the truth - a deception
the Church is keen to uphold today.
Now, Australian publisher / entrepreneur Tony Bushby has
uncovered some of the deceit of the last two millennia in
The Bible Fraud
- the result of 12 years of painstaking fulltime research. The
central thesis is one that other scholars and mystics, as far back
Michelangelo and Sir Francis Bacon, have known about and
referred to in codes and ciphers: that the figure we know as
Jesus Christ is a composite character.
According to Bushby, the real story is about the twin brothers,
the illegitimate sons of the Roman Emperor Tiberius and
Princess Mariamne Herod, the granddaughter of King Herod, who has
Nabatean Arab/Hasmodean ancestry. The two boys were brought up in
Essene community; indeed, the Essenes had a prophecy
about twin Messiahs, so the brothers seemed to fit the
bill. The elder, Judas Khrestus, became a sword-wielding
Galilean revolutionary ("the Wicked Priest"), while the younger, the
Rabbi Jesus (or Yeshu’a), had a ministry with strong links with
the Druids of Gaul and Britain and actually became a Druid King.
Bushby analyses many Gospel passages where it seems that two
completely different personalities were interwoven. He charts the
early genealogies showing that the genetic heritage of the Rabbi Jesus mingled with the Druidic/Celtic lines
and was reseeded into the Roman Imperial line several times down to
Constantine, and thus he dovetails along the way with Laurence
Gardner’s narrative. He also delves into how the Church, along with
its dogma and official texts, was created.
Bushby’s thought-provoking book is recommended reading for
anyone who is on the search for truth in history.
