Where was Jesus for the first thirty years of his life? Where and what was he taught? Who were his teachers?

This fascinating volume offers startling new evidence culled from hard-to-find Vatican texts, theosophical classics, legends and hermetic symbolism to construct radical new picture of Jesus and his times. McCannon postulates that Jesus spent at least seven years in Egypt, a number of years in England, and visited both India and Tibet before beginning his public ministry in Palestine.

This is a wide-ranging examination of the direct links and similarities between Jesus’ teachings and the teachings of various mystery religions and sects that were popular during his lifetime, including the Essenes, Buddhists, and Druids. McCannon offers compelling evidence that places Jesus’ life and mission firmly in the context of the deeper spiritual teachings that came before him.

From the book:
“We all know the beginning of the tale when the magical child is born, and we all know its ending… but a vast portion of the middle chapters of the epic are missing… Where did he live before the age of twelve, and afterwards in the decades before his ministry began? Did he have teachers who know of his deeper mission? How did they help to prepare him for it? This book will answer all these questions.”

Tricia McCannon is a writer, teacher, and speaker about various facets of the world’s mystery religions. She has been a guest on more than 150 national TV and radio shows, including the popular series Sightings, Unsolved Mysteries, and Strange Universe.
