                                     THE ZIGZAGS OF OUR HISTORY

 

       The trip on which we are inviting you now is absolutely unusual.

       The historian-reformers contend that Christ was born after the millennium... A.D.  That is, he was born, lived and was crucified not 2,000 years ago, as the traditional chronology maintains, but in the epoch of the 10th-11th centuries A.D. At the same time, the scientists are producing a mass of tremendously interesting facts, evidence and assumptions.  One can find them in the numerous volumes of the works of G. Nosovskiy and A. Fomenko, in the works of academician M. Morozov, and in the books of a whole series of Western scientists.  Many of them have been published and still will be published on the pages of the RevisedHistory.org Web site.  Let us then, armed with their conclusions, set off on a trip though the places connected with Christ's work.

     Our trip runs not toPalestine, not to present-day Jerusalem, but to Turkey. To Istanbul!  To that very Istanbul which several centuries ago was called Constantinople and was the capital of the huge Byzantine Christian Empire. In which connection it also was called New Rome and...Jerusalem. Then, in those centuries, in the opinion of the historian-reformers, the word "Jerusalem" meant "Holy City." No more, but also no less. It is here that Jesus Christ lived and preached.

    The Star of Bethlehem, referred to in all kinds of sources, let alone the New Testament, points to the fact that he was born in the 11th century. In 1054, the brightest star flared up-there was a colossal explosion of a supernova millions of parsecs from Earth. The so-called Crab Nebula, which is studied by all the world's astronomers, still remains from it to this day. In the century in which, in the opinion of the traditionalists, Christ was born, there was no such flare-up in space.

    Believers have connected the explosion of the supernova with the birth of the Messiah. And this explosion can serve as a reliable reference point of Christ's life.  

     According to the Gospel, after 33 years he was crucified at Golgotha near Jerusalem. When they equated the Jerusalem of the Gospel with the present in the 17-18th centuries, then, essentially, they tried to find this Golgotha itself. But that which is being proposed to us now as Golgotha in modern Palestine, it's a little hill. One can find such hills wherever they like.

   At the same time, outside of Istanbul there is a place which one can rather reliably equate with the Golgotha of the Gospel. The highest mountain in the Upper Bosphorus. Today it bears the name Beykoz. And at its summit (180 meters above sea level) is situated a giant symbolic grave which is called "the grave of Jesus." In Turkish, Jesus-Yusa.

    It is unlikely you have heard about it. Therefore, let's get better acquainted with it.

    The official Christian church has declared it the grave of another Jesus - of Jesus Navin.((1)) But in particular, the crusaders came here with maniacal persistence all the way up to the last crusade (1453), so as to seize the Holy Sepulchre by storm. They went all out for Constantinople, and not modern Jerusalem. It also is known for certain that Russians sailed in particular to Czarigrad=Constantinople to Christ's grave.

     What does it look like today?

     A flat, rectangular earthen rise 17 meters long and 2 meters wide. It is surrounded with a high cast-iron grate, enclosed by means of an iron netting. The point is that the local inhabitants consider the grave miraculous and come here in order to be healed of their illnesses. But, the iron netting doesn't allow the pilgrim to touch the holy ground inside the fence.

  The ground is overgrown with thick grass. Several high trees grow. At the opposite end of the grave are two circular cylindrical stones, which are reminiscent of small millstones. In the center of one of them are seen a quadrangular opening and a very noticeable fissure. All this is enclosed by a stone wall, in which two doors and several windows have been made. The pilgrims enter one of the doors, pass around the grave in a circle and exit outside through a second door.

      Nothing has changed here in several centuries. In the well-known Old Russian text, "The Pilgrimage of Abbot Daniel," a description is given of the Jerusalem of the Gospel. In modern Russian translation, a fragment of this text reads thus: "The place of the crucifixion of the Lord is found on the eastern side on the stone. It was high. The stone itself was round, not unlike a small hill, and in the middle of that stone, on the very top, a socket-hole is carved out nearly a cubit in depth, and the width is not less than a foot in diameter.  It is here that the cross of the Lord was erected. In the ground itself, beneath the stone lays the head of the first Adam. . . And that stone has broken up above Adam's head. . . And there is this fissure in the stone even to this day. . . The place of the Lord's crucifixion and that holy stone are enclosed all round with a wall. . . there are two doors."

     Everything agrees precisely with the present appearance of the grave on Mount Beykoz on the outskirts of Istanbul. Daniel further notes that is it about five sajenes ((2)) from the Lord's crucifixion to the descent from the cross. Actually, at the other end of the grave is a second stone approximately the very same size, but without the fissure. Most likely it marks the place of the "descent from the cross," that is, the place where they laid the body of Jesus after taking him down from the cross.

     And then it becomes understandable why the grave is so huge. The place where Jesus was crucified also ascribes to it. As regards the famous Holy Sepulchre, which the crusaders recaptured from the Turks, today it apparently is no longer on Mount Beykoz. Daniel saw it and described it as a sarcophagus:  "Out of the rock a grotto small,"   that is, "a small cave hewn from the stone." In which connection, with small doors:  "it hath doors which are small." One could enter only on hands and knees.

    According to Daniel and other sources of the Middle Ages, the Holy Sepulchre was at the separate Church of the Resurrection. Some kind of a small building has been built onto the wall now. There are no other buildings. There is information that at some time the ruins of some kind of Byzantine buildings were found here.

      Alongside the grave of Jesus are several common graves. There are huge ones, too, but somewhat lower. The historian-reformers are expressing the supposition that the disciples of Jesus, his apostles, are buried in some of them.

      There also is one more stunningly majestic and splendid monument of Christianity in Istanbul=Constantinople. This is the Hagia Sophia Temple. In it is the famous golden mosaic which depicts Jesus Christ. They call it "one of the greatest works and triumphs of mosaic art in Constantinople." Gold, precious and semiprecious stones. According to the new reconstruction of history, the Hagia Sophia Temple is not so different than the Biblical temple of Solomon. In the modern view, it was built in the 16th century by the sultan Suleyman (Solomon) the Magnificent. In the subsequent two centuries, the temple was remade into a mosque.

    Starting from the 11th all the way to the 15th centuries, Czarigrad=Jerusalem was considered the center of the world of that time.  It is also portrayed so on maps. On one of them, dated 1581, Jerusalem is located in the center of the world. It is drawn in that place where the three continents come together, symbolically depicted by three petals:  Europe, Asia and Africa. Such a portrayal agrees with the location of Istanbul on the Bosphorus Straits. The straits also separate Europe from Asia exactly, and Africa lies to the south.

     If understood, the discovery of Jerusalem in Constantinople is not such a surprise. The fact is that the Christian Church itself was the first to begin a search for Biblical locations other than those which are indicated in the Gospels. Starting from the 13th century, the Catholic Church has claimed that the very house where the Virgin Mary lived and where the Archangel Gabriel appeared to her is in the Italian city of Loreto. The earliest document concerning the "House of Loreto" is a Bull of Urban VI (in 1387.) In 1891, Leo XIII published an encyclical on the occasion of the "600th anniversary of the miracle in Loreto." That is, he dated this miracle in 1291!  So, when then was Christ born?  And where?  The zigzags of history take one's breath away.  Making them more interesting for investigation.
