The Book of the Holy Grail
Joseph of Arimathea, J.R. Ploughman; Translated by Thomas Jefferson & Henry Mercer
For those of you who have been skeptical about the authenticity of The Book of the Holy Grail, this December 20, 1999 interview by J. Neil Schulman with the book's editor, J.R. Ploughman, the Merovingian Patriarch, should answer your questions. Click to listen to it in RealAudio. Part 1 and Part 2.
It reveals the origins of the universe, the sources of good and evil, and the purpose of human life. Its authenticity can be validated mathematically in American English, independent of its original language or historical documents.
It was first translated into English by Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence, and himself a Grand Master, the Strict Observance—Knights Templar, The United Orders of the American Rite.
This is the Bible of Gnostic Christianity, the original source for the legends of the Holy Grail, of Freemasonry, even of the Mormon Church. Its text contains the most attacked and suppressed alternative gospel of the life of Jesus. It disputes the accounts in the traditionally accepted gospels regarding what Jesus’ mission was on Earth, what Jesus taught, and how Jesus died.
It has been waiting for the turn of the third millennium, and authority from prophecies made 146 years ago, for it finally to be published. Forget The Passover Plot, The Gnostic Gospels, The Celestine Prophecy, or Conversations With God. If you’re looking for the New Age book which was planned for publication before time itself began, you’ve been waiting for The Book of the Holy Grail.
Whatever you believe, it is time that this book surfaces into the public consciousness, so it can finally stand alongside the other great books of human faith and human history.
In 1982 the book Holy Blood, Holy Grail by Michael Baigent, Henry Lincoln, and Richard Leigh hit the bookstands with a vengeance causing controversy within the theological theatre and unrest amongst traditional churches. The book presented a single idea, which was greatly supported by both hard core evidence as well as conspiracy theory.
Plainly, the theme of the book was that Jeshua ben Jusef (Jesus) may not have died on the cross, and that the Christian religion, devoted to that idea, was thus a hoax.
It is plain to see that as we near the millennium, church attendance has fallen drastically and belief in biblical tenets is no longer common. The church as a whole has become a billion dollar a year industry complete with accountants, press agents, bankers and well groomed stars who preach from lavish television studios, and whose emphasis is on liberating the congregation from their money as opposed to liberating them from sin.
If we are to believe the information revealed for the first time in Holy Blood, Holy Grail (and we do for it is all as they have said), then the religion which has been taken so matter-of- factly, is a lie based upon a hoax. The social toll that organized religion has taken on society throughout history is well documented.
We are rapidly approaching the millennium, and now it is time for certain truths to be revealed. Holy Blood, Holy Grail was correct for the most part. It helped pave a new road to theological truth. It also made people aware of the Holy Grail, for the first time in centuries.
The Holy Grail has been hidden and well protected since Joseph of Arimathea wrote down the Grail doctrine as it was dictated to him by the Neutral Angels, Rheddae, France in 54AD. The doctrine has always been hidden. Waite called us ‘the Hidden Church’. Its veils have only been able to be penetrated by those on the Quest who were/are, pure of heart. It was protected by the family of Jeshua ben Jusef (Jesus), from where we get the Grail Bloodline and protected by the Cathars at Montsegur, the Knights Templar, the old witches of Scotland in the 1500’s and finally the Illuminati in America in 1776. Each of these groups has been the target of the church, not for what we do, but for the secret we hold. But the church could never reveal that aspect of their purpose, for it would alert seekers, who would in turn seek us out.
The Holy Grail is the single most important mystery of creation. Its doctrine holds the key to life and explains where we come from, why we are here, our purpose etc. It will also answer the question many distraught people ask after a needless death or unfortunate circumstance, ‘why did God do that’. In simple terms it explains why and how people are as they are. It shows the reason why we have different races and what the strong points are of each race, and puts the racial question into a perspective, never before revealed. This allows for better understanding. It explains the purpose and pitfalls of reincarnation, which explains many aspects about people.
This holy book was translated into English in 1787 by Thomas Jefferson, who was a Grand Master, Strict Observance-Templar, or simply, Illuminati. It is the only true American religion. The teachings, doctrine, philosophy of the Grail were in fact planned for the Chosen land which is the United States of America. Ours is the Chosen language, and this fact is well illustrated by how the Divine Mathematics apply to our language, and support Grail doctrine. This was all planned during the pre-existence in the Celestial Realm.
This book will reveal the how and why of the Holy Grail which has been drawn from The Book of the Holy Grail. It is the introductory discourse which gives the seeker on the Quest their beginning. It is the basics of the theology which have been prepared by the Patriarch specifically for the seeker. The ideas expressed within these pages have never been made public before. But it is not new-age pop culture adhering to politically correct thought. It is simply the facts with no embellishment or opinion.
This book is a series of chapters which explain the Grail doctrine and give a basic idea of each part of the Grail plan, so the seeker can become oriented with the Quest, and be put on the right path.
J.R. Ploughman, author of Keys to the Quest, by right of inheritance and lineage, is a very private person, being the current Patriarch of the Merovingian Gnostic Church, Order of the Holy Grail, and the current Grand Master of the Strict Observance—Knights Templar/Illuminati, The United Orders of the American Rite. He is married to a Grail Princess and has two sons, Edward 16 and Reginald 11 months. J.R. has been a writer and publisher of rare esoteric books since 1975. He is a staunch libertarian and defender of First and Second Amendment rights. He has written, published and edited many traditional magickal books as well as penned some Discordian/ Erisian texts of bombastic humor. His current and most engrossing project is his band, Cat Chaser Conspiracy, a blend of punk, goth, and babydoll music.
Thomas Jefferson, the original translator of The Book of the Holy Grail into English, was born April 13, 1743, in Virginia, which he called home for most of his life, serving as its governor and authoring its Declaration of Rights. Jefferson was also the primary author of the American Declaration of Independence in 1776. Thomas Jefferson served as governor of Virginia, a congressman, minister to France, secretary of state, and the third President of the United States. In addition to his political career, he was a lawyer, a classical scholar and linguist, a musician, a farmer and horticulturist, an inventor, and an architect, as well as having been Grand Master of the Strict Observance—Knights Templar, The United Orders of the American Rite. In addition to his translation of The Book of the Holy Grail, Jefferson also edited his own version of the traditional Christian gospels from textual sources in several languages. One of Thomas Jefferson’s most famous statements, inscribed on the Jefferson Memorial in Washington D.C., is, 'I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.' He died July 4, 1826, the 50-year anniversary of the Declaration of Independence.
Henry Mercer (Henri Mercier) was a Grand Master of the United orders of the American Rite, Strict Observance 1787. In 1853 he Americanized the Thomas Jefferson translation of The Book of the Holy Grail for the Chosen peoples, speaking the Chosen language (American English) in the Chosen Land (the United States of America). He was a Patriarch of the Merovingian Gnostic Church, Order of the Holy Grail.
