Jesus the Stranger
According to author Tony Bushby in "The Bible Fraud: An Untold Story of Jesus Christ" The British Chronicles record that King Tenvantius was the father of a man called Cunobeline, who was absorbed into the family by marriage. The name means cuno- 'hound' and 'Belenos' (the god) Belenus (also Belenos) was the Celtic sun god. The word 'British' actually means 'Covenant man.' He identifies this person as Rabbi Jesus. Wikipedia describes Cunobeline as a late 1st century BC - 40s AD historical king in pre-Roman Britain. His life is comemorated by references by classical historians Suetonius and Dio Cassius, and from his many inscribed coins. He appears to have controlled a substantial portion of south-eastern England, and is called "Britannorum rex" ("king of the Britons") by Suetonius. He also appears in British legend as Cynfelyn (Welsh), Kymbelinus (Medieval Brito-Latin) or Cymbeline (Shakespeare, et al.). From numismatic evidence Cunobelinus appears to have taken power around 9 CE, minting coins from both Camulodunum (Colchester, capital of the Trinovantes) and Verlamion (later the Roman town of Verulamium, now modern St. Albans), capital of the Catuvellauni. Cunobelinus disappears from the narrative, most likely because he died, sometime before 43 CE. It is reported that a Group from Bethany, not referred to as Christians, which became known as the Culdees landed in Britain. The name Culdee refers to 'Essene Initiates.' There is no record that Jesus Cunobeline ever returned to the Middle East.

Jesus is absent for 18 years in the gospel accounts if you go by the reported age of Jesus in the Synoptics. However, Jesus left Israel after 6 CE and never returned. Yet, in the gospels we find Jesus living in Israel c 30 CE but he was not recognized by members of his own community. This seems to indicate that he had been away living somewhere else for quite sometime, or this person was not Jesus. This also represents the same period of time which is not covered by Josephus.

"And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt fine of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee."—Matthew 17:24-27

Although Jesus was a son of David, for some strange reason he pays the strangers tax. Why?

John the Baptist, who was Jesus' cousin, and spent time with Jesus as they grew up, was very uncertain as to Jesus' identity at his baptism. If Jesus had spent the "lost years" in Judea, he and John would certainly have seen each other at the three yearly Feasts. "And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost."—John 1:33

From "The Mandaeans: Ancient Texts and Modern People" in the book of John we find: Jesus was the disciple of the Devil, who fooled John the Baptist. The “liar” Jesus tricked John into baptizing him by use of a satanic ruse that seemed to come from heaven. “Yahya (John) baptized the liar in the Jordan”, he baptized “the false prophet Yishu Meshiha (Jesus the Messiah), son of the devil Ruha Kadishta."

Then we find other accounts of Jesus' identity being questioned. "Is this not Joseph's son?" "Brought up here?"—Luke 4 "Is not this the carpenter's son?"—Matt 14, and in John 1 we find that Nathaniel, who only lived five miles from Nazareth, doesn't know Jesus. "Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me?"—John 1:48

"Even Jesus' own brothers did not believe in him."—John 7:5

"Jesus entered a house. Again a crowd gathered. It was so large that Jesus and his disciples were not even able to eat. His family heard about this. So they went to take charge of him. They said, "He is out of his mind."—Mark 3:20-21

"Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet,...they went up into an upper room, where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James. These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren."—Acts 1:12,14

So, it was the crucifixion and the resurrection and not the message that earned their belief much like the Greek Prometheans required. If these people were as religious as we are led to believe, why did they only start praying after the crucifixion. Who were they and what did they do before?

We also find that he is not recognized after the crucifixion, first in the empty tomb narratives of John by Mary Magdalene: "Now when she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, and did not know that it was Jesus." and in Luke by his uncle ben Cleopas: "...while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them. But their eyes were holden that they should not know him. And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another,...And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem,..."

After the resurrection he meets the Apostles in Galilee where again he is not recognized: "Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them. And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted."—Matthew 28:16,17. This scene from Matthew stands in stark contrast to Luke where he meets the eleven in Jerusalem. In John, we find the following: "...Jesus shewed himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias (Galilee);...There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples. Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing....They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing....when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus."—John 21:1-6. The meeting near the Sea of Galilee, probably near Capernaum, makes sense as this was near the passage to the Silk Road which began in Bhagdad and was accessible by a route just north of the Sea of Galilee, where Apollonius embarked on his first trek to India.

The fact that no one recognizes Jesus, indicates that there must have been a person who the people were led to believe was Jesus, but did not recognize him as such. It is obvious that this person could not have been Yeshu, the Essene 'Teacher of Righteousness' since he had been dead for nearly 100 years. Therefore, this person, whom they did not recognize, must have been the Jewish Messianic twin Yeshai beth Halachmee, the righteous person known as Zadok.
