BOOK REVIEW: 'THE TWIN DECEPTION' by TONY BUSHBY
The Twin Deception is the fourth book in an ongoing series by Australian author and researcher Tony Bushby. This series involves information on how the Vatican, through its’ agents, have rewritten, censored, or plagiarized outright – certain aspects of the story of the life of Jesus Christ, as presented in the pages of the Holy Bible. In Bushby’s three previous books – The Bible Fraud (2001), The Secret in The Bible (2003), and The Crucifixion of Truth (2004) – deep research that he has performed since 1985 has raised plenty of eyebrows in both the mainstream religious circles, and in esoteric research circles, as well. As an intelligent person who has always paid close attention to details, I have had many questions about the matters as discussed by Bushby in these books. After reading all four, I have to say that to my own satisfaction, many of my own questions now appear to have been answered.
The central theme of ‘The Twin Deception’ concerns a deep secret from early Christianity that had come to be excised from the Bible itself, and from the story of the events in the life of Jesus Christ, and how this secret had appeared in the oldest known Bible, the First English language copy of the Vulgate Bible from 1563, and then later disappeared through a series of Papal orders and ecumenical council edits of future editions of the Bible. This secret involves the curious basis of twin children appearing in early artwork, statuary, paintings, and carvings by men such as Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci. Many examples of this appear within the books’ pages.
From where did Bushby get his information?
As it states on pg. 57 of The Twin Deception; his research comes from “combining First Century Roman records with New Testament narratives, extracts from the Dead Sea Scrolls, and the de-coded secret ciphers of a 16th Century Knights Templar initiate.” Bushby also examined records within the Vatican Secret Archive, the tens of thousands of apocryphal texts, and the ancient records of the various ecumenical councils, which were tasked with altering the Bible narrative, so that the connection between Ancient Egypt and Christianity remained concealed.
Although it is not mentioned by Bushby directly, I find it to be very intriguing that the self-same face on the Shroud of Turin, which is supposedly the image of Christ embedded into this so-called burial cloth, can be found within the William Henry books, Ark of the Christos (2002), pg. 316 and Blue Apples (2000) pg. 110. As Christ was known to have been initiated as a high-priest in Egypt, as covered in the apocryphal Book of Jasher and other sources, this is certainly an interesting connection between these two seemingly unrelated subjects.
Why does the face from the Shroud of Turin appear in an ancient Egyptian temple, as reported by esoteric historian and researcher William Henry?
So, what is this big secret that Bushby reveals?
Part of this secret involves the inserting of hidden ciphers and other forms of codes and concealment into the Bible verses by none other than Francis Bacon, who Bushby points out, used the number 33 as his personal numeric signature, which had been embedded into every manuscript with which he had personal involvement. Another aspect of this secret are the numerous unexplained appearances of Mary holding twin boys in artwork throughout the centuries, such as the 48 sets of twins in the artwork on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, the twin of Jesus at the Last Supper, and Bushby states that the twins-on-horseback symbol of the Knights Templar was designed as such to communicate to inside initiates that the Templars were in possession of this secret. With all that I have learned about occult (secret) symbolism, this idea behind the Templar twins-on-horseback certainly makes logical sense.
The Knights Templar symbol of twins on horseback indicates that the Templars were in possession of the secret of Jesus' twin brother, Thomas. Bushby points out that Tomas is a Greek word for 'twin.'
Bushby also dips into the ancient historical writings of the Popes, and reviews their statements in the context of this self-censorship. For example, he presents a highly provocative quote by Pope Leo X (1513-1521), which was a toast at a Easter Friday banquet in the Vatican in 1514:
“How well we know what a profitable superstition this fable of Christ has been for us, and our predecessors.”
And, at other times, Pope Leo X had been quoted as saying the following, which is a variation of above:
“Quantum nobis prodest haec fabula Christi.” [Translation: "It has served us well, this myth of Christ."]
I had read an online review of Bushby’s first book, The Bible Fraud, where the reviewer attempted to claim that the above quote was patently false, and was the product of some conspiracy to in some way harm or damage the Christian religion or the Church itself. However, there were seven witnesses to this toast, two of whom were Cardinal Pietro Bembo and Cardinal Jovius, who recorded this rather extraordinary statement in their own personal diaries and records, even publishing them in two books that each man had authored. For the 493 years since this statement has been made, the Vatican has tried to invalidate it as a matter of historical record, and a revelation concerning the true basis of the Christian faith.
Bushby then goes on to say that the Vatican devoted two and a half pages in the very first edition of The Catholic Encyclopedia (1907) to attempt to invalidate this highly damaging statement by the head of the Church in 1514. A semantical argument was proffered, stating that what Pope Leo X really meant when he said ‘profitable,’ was ‘gainful,’ and ‘fable’ was meant to be ‘tradition.’ Thus, their interpretation of what Pope Leo said was: “How well Christians have gained from this wonderful tradition of Christ.”
But, as Bushby immediately points out, “that isn’t what he said.”
If I can offer my own interpretation, Pope Leo’s usage of the two words ‘superstition’ and ‘fable’ connote that there is something FALSE about the story of Christ. His usage of the word ‘profitable’ seems to indicate that this FALSITY has delivered untold amounts of money to the Church. As the specific nature of this falsehood is beyond the scope of this document, however, I encourage all curious people to investigate the concept of astrotheology, and the role IT plays in the system of global comparative religion for more on the possible answer to WHY any Pope, as the head of the Christian Church and religion, would have made a statement calling Christ a fable AND a superstition.
Personally, I believe that authors and researchers such as Tony Bushby and Ralph Ellis are doing the right thing by questioning the religious establishment, as people deserve to know more about the nature of their own religious worship other than the pat answer “It is a matter of faith, so stop asking questions.” It is always a good thing to question authority, and when it comes to religion, it is especially important to do so. With so much of the Christian story coming from Ancient Egypt, all Christians have the right to know more about this previously hidden connection.
Bushby also reveals that Jesus Christ was a high-priest who was initiated inside of the Great Pyramid on the Giza Plateau, and as a result of this, several books were authored by Christ that concerned the magic of what ultimately became the Egyptian Mystery School. These books were suppressed and censored by the Vatican, under the orders of the Pope himself. Likewise, early Christian artwork shows Jesus holding a magic wand, which was also suppressed and censored by the Vatican, because of their belief that the so-called common man does not deserve to have access to this information.
Thus, now you should understand why they refer to non-initiates as “the vulgar” and “the profane.”
Even with his in-depth research, there are going to be those out there who will simply not be able to handle the truth as Bushby reveals it. This is to be expected, as there are a great many who place on faith alone, all of their religious “truths.” There are some who simply cannot face the reality of the basis of their very own faith being questioned. For instance, the twenty-year old son of my closest friend is an aspiring Christian recording artist. He had asked me on Christmas Day itself, what I thought Jesus Christ represented. When I gave him my answer, which was the result of nearly thirty-years of my own research, his response told me that he was not expecting the answer I offered.
However, the most interesting aspect of the entire book ‘The Twin Deception’ was Bushby’s description of the role that Francis Bacon played in the King James Authorized Bible. Bushby described how Bacon inserted many forms of ciphers in his copyist work, and how evidence of this can still be found today, nearly 400 years after the fact. Bushby also displays an artist rendering of Francis Bacon on pg. 272, which was from a 1656 tract, and this artwork is IDENTICAL to known renderings of William Shakespeare! Furthermore, Bushby translates many of these ciphers, which reveal the presence of hidden information in the biblical texts.
There have been fanciful texts such as ‘The Bible Code,’ ‘The Bible Code II,’ and ‘The Da Vinci Code,’ that have posited the existence of secret information enciphered into the Bible and in the story of Jesus Christ itself. The difference with Bushby is that the data he presents is supported by a 14 page bibliography, which lists Bible dictionaries, encyclopedias, and concordances – along with many other historical and analytical religious texts. There are no theories here, only verifiable and verified facts, according to the Church’s own heretofore hidden records and texts.
In summary, I highly recommend this book, The Twin Deception, and the entire series by Tony Bushby to those curious about how a major global religion moved from myth to faith.
