Re: Wise Men

DEar Friends,

Acording to the Dead Sea Scrolls Scholar and historian of the early years of
Christianity, Dr Hugh Schonfield, the 'Three Wise Men Story' used in
Christian tradition lwas a direct steal from an earlier tradition.
Schonfield claims, and other scholars support this, that this story was
first used about the birth of John the Baptist  and was only adapted to the
Jesus mythology after the fall of Jerusalem.

Suggest we all tread carefully on this one.

Best wishes
