Books and Rosslyn

Talking about books. Anyone interested in having a sense of the history behind Da Vinci Code should look at the books written by Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas. I start with the Hiram Key and then read The Second Messiah. I let the visitors a connection to both books in Amazon, here and here. They are both enjoyable but I prefer the first one. The narrative is strong the hypothesis well presented. Anyone that progress through the High Degrees of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite perceives that there is "something" around the way the Knights Templar disappeared almost without leaving a trace. Something that was not well explained by history and historians. Another passionate subject is the human dimension of Jesus Christ. We freemasons don’t discuss politics or religion in our lodges, but this landmark doesn’t forbidden us to search for a proper way to understand history and its heroes. The scriptures were written by people that were contemporaries of Christ or it's companions. They were written for the purpose of charming people to the universal and liberating dimensions of Christianity and to evangelize. The divine dimension of Christ was later defended and defined as one of the basic tenures of the Christian dogma in a very controversial conference, the first council of Nicea in 325 a.C. The Nicene Creed of 325 explicitly affirms the divinity of Jesus, applying to him the term "God". The 381 version speaks of the Holy Spirit as worshipped and glorified with the Father and the Son. The Athanasian Creed describes in much greater detail the relationship between Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The Apostles' Creed, not formulated in reaction to Arianism, makes no explicit statements about the divinity of the Son and the Holy Spirit, but, in the view of many who use it, the doctrine is implicit in it.
But was this deliberation of the Church about the dual dimension of Christ unanimous? No. There was a part of theologians gathered in these conferences that haven’t accept that version of the historical events. For them, Christ was really human, have a family, as any Jew would have; He was a marvelous creature, a leader of the former Christians, the so-called Jerusalem Church or the Gnostics. This is the other part of the story unknown by many people that is narrated by Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas.
