Video of Dennis Price speaking about his book

More and more people are writing to me about my book The Missing Years of Jesus, and the vast majority have had nothing but praise and kind words for it. I appreciate this very much and I’m glad that so many people are enjoying reading it, while I’m far less concerned about anyone agreeing with my conclusions.

I made this short video a few years ago with the kind assistance of my friend Frank Somers, so for those of you who haven’t see it, it gives you some idea of who I am. It also contains a brief description of my book, but you can find more details about this publication elsewhere on this site. These details can be found on the static page bearing the title of my book, while there’s also a page giving a preview of the book’s foreword and another with reviews.

I’ve written numerous posts on the subject of the ‘missing years’ of Jesus since my book was published. Some deal with new information that’s come in since publication, while others simply refer to or mention some aspect of this mystery, but you can find them all on the right-hand side of this site in the AD 12 – 30 category.

Thank you for visiting my site. If you’ve read my book, then I simply hope you’ve enjoyed it and thank you for buying it.

Watched you by chance this morning on Gardiner’s World – immediately struck by your tone of voice – continued watching. Fascinated by your discoveries – I’ll get your book – read lots along similar lines since my conversion FROM Christianity – (on my blog). It is a travesty that our true history has been manipulated and many scholars refuse to acknowledge that we have been ‘lied’ to – and so the deceit continues. I hope I’m not being too fanciful when I say that this cover-up and denial, fostered by the ‘church’, is to prevent us from seeing who and what we really are… Another story… which I am attempting to write about…Then there’s crop circles…!

Hello Poppy,

Thank you for taking the time and the trouble to write in. It’s difficult to listen to oneself and to be objective, but perhaps my tone of voice during the interview with Phil Gardiner was notably different from the tone in the recent BBC interview, as I’d been awake for much longer.

As for the other things you mention, the simple truth is that I do not know for a fact that JC existed, but on balance, I’m inclined to think he did. I’ve spent some years now, looking into the seemingly vexed question of his ‘missing years’, and I’ve yet to find a shred of persuasive evidence that he was anywhere other than what is now the West of England and South Wales during this time. I’ve gone into all this before now on several occasions here on Eternal Idol, while every now and again, some new piece of information comes in, but there are a great many informed discussions here about early Christianity in Britain if you care to look.

Given that there’s zero evidence for JC being anywhere else and in my view, a great deal of persuasive and thought-provoking evidence that he was here in Britain, I often wondered why the ‘church’ didn’t take far more of an interest in this matter. I long ago concluded that it was because any stay in Britain by JC in ancient times logically means that he was on warm terms with the heathen locals, which would be perfectly in keeping with what we know of his character and disposition, because he was on warm terms with just about everyone he ever met, apparently, even Romans, with the notable exception of many of the priesthood in his own country.

For what it’s worth, that’s my take on the matter, but I’m really not concerned either way. However, as I mentioned in passing during my interview with Trevor Fry, I’m aware that a many people around the world are intrigued by these West Country legends, so I’m sure that the region and the populace would benefit greatly if they were better known. Glastonbury notably benefits from the legends of King Arthur, whether they’re rooted in truth or not, so I ask myself “Where’s the harm?” in the legends of JC in Britain being better known and discussed.

Dennis,

I was very pleased to see you and your book cited under “Britain” in this entry about Joseph of Arimathea. I’m also embarrassed to admit that, until recently, I was unaware that you had this video clip here (though I’d seen it on YouTube).

Dennis January 13, 2014 at 5:48 pm

Aynslie,

Thank you very much for bringing this to my attention, because I was pleased to see I’d had such a solid if brief mention, beneath a picture drawn by the great William Blake. You must not be embarrassed by being unaware of the clip of me speaking, because at a rough guess, I’ve written 95% of the posts on this site and I’ve forgotten where 95% of them are. You, by contrast, know this site far better than I do and I’m most grateful to you for all the work you do here to help everyone else who visits the site. Thank you.

Dennis, I think you are spot on. I wonder if the Church/Royalty has always known it is true. Maybe they are keeping it secret because it’s so huge but also because of this; his spirit will return not in Israel but in England one day? As you know British means covenant man.
I also wonder if the successful Roman invasion ten years after his death was partly to kill any children he might have fathered?

Dennis January 14, 2014 at 11:21 pm

Peter, thank you for your vote of confidence, but in this era of Boundless Informant and others, I think that real secrets are few and far between; in any case, my book was published in 2009 and there’s been a huge amount of publicity and discussion as a result, while I’ve also received a lot of correspondence from Christians – devout and otherwise – from around the world.

As I see things, the idea of Christ visiting Britain is not only perfectly plausible but virtually inevitable if you care to look at the evidence in my book, as well as the information that’s come in since its publication and also the information available in books written by others. I think that the ‘ecclesiastical hierarchy’ probably secretly admires and even approves of what I’ve written, but it’s a case of everyone waiting for everyone else to be the first to ‘dip a toe into the water’ because no one wants to risk looking stupid or becoming a social pariah.

I can point out an almost identical parallel, which is the idea of the Druids having any links with Stonehenge. This notion has been strenuously denied by The Archaeological Establishment for over a century, despite the mass of information in the public domain to the contrary. At some point last year, however, some enthusiastic cognoscenti were gathered on a radio show hosted by a singularly shrewd presenter and mirabile dictu, they had a think about it and decided it was indeed perfectly possible that the ancient Druids had some link with Stonehenge. From what I gathered, they enthused about this idea without presenting anything very convincing by the way of evidence, but it’s better than nothing, I suppose.

As it seems to be such an enduring and hot topic, I’ve decided to put together my thoughts on this for future possible publication. I’m also in the fortunate position of not having an axe to grind over either the idea of JC in Britain or the Druids at Stonehenge, which makes life easier when it comes to being objective [and having a decent night's sleep].
