BACK COVER #
The Egyptians invented it. The Bible records its formulation and use. It was an ointment made from precious herbal medicines that caused "visions and dreams." For 1000 years every Hebrew high priest and king was sanctified by it. The ancient Jews called the ones so-consecrated "Messiahs," meaning "Anointed Ones."

One day the Messiah Medicine was ground to ashes beneath the rubble of war, persisting only as a dim memory decaying into myth. More than 500 years later, a man named Jesus resurrected it. He was anointed and called "Christ," meaning "Anointed One." He used it to consecrate his Disciples, the "Christians" or "Anointed Ones."

It was lost again... Yet only by learning its secrets can the true origins of Judaism and Christianity be known.
