In The Mushroom in Christian Art, author John A Rush uses an artistic motif to define the nature of Christian art, establish the identity of Jesus, and expose the motive for his murder Covering Christian art from 200 CE common era to the present, the author reveals that Jesus, the Teacher of Righteousness mentioned in the Dead Sea Scrolls, is a personification of the HIn The Mushroom in Christian Art, author John A Rush uses an artistic motif to define the nature of Christian art, establish the identity of Jesus, and expose the motive for his murder Covering Christian art from 200 CE common era to the present, the author reveals that Jesus, the Teacher of Righteousness mentioned in the Dead Sea Scrolls, is a personification of the Holy Mushroom, Amanita muscaria The mushroom, Rush argues, symbolizes numerous mind altering substances psychoactive mushrooms, cannabis, henbane, and mandrake used by the early, experimentally minded Christian sects.Drawing on primary historical sources, Rush traces the history and face of Jesus as being constructed and codified only after 325 CE The author relates Jesus s life to a mushroom typology, discovering its presence, disguised, in early Christian art In the process, he reveals the ritual nature of the original Christian cults, rites, and rituals, including mushroom use The book authoritatively uncovers Jesus s message of peace, love, and spiritual growth and proposes his murder as a conspiracy by powerful reactionary forces who would replace that message with the oppressive religious political system that endures to this day Rush s use of the mushroom motif as a springboard for challenging mainstream views of Western religious history is both provocative and persuasive.The package includes an informative DVD with 252 striking color images depicting Christian art, with key motifs indicated by the author.

No Wasson? And yet he cites himself five times in his own bibliography. One has to slog through a dangerous jun [...]

Amanita muscaria is a hell of a drug!
