||Glenn Kimball is an author, educator and lecturer. He has successfully completed all course work for a Ph.D. in Communications. He was the former president of International Exchange School and has taught at Southern Illinois University. He has been collecting ancient texts since the age of fifteen and is famous for being able to integrate very diverse texts into a contiguous story line. Due to the censorship of time and doubt, most of the documents and oral stories chronicling the early life of Jesus were destroyed, lost, or forgotten. After 25 years of research, during which Kimball visited museums, Indian tribes, medicine men, and universities, he assembled some of the missing links and unsolved mysteries of Christianity.
Scota: Namesake of Scotland
by Glenn Kimball
There is another critical reason the Kolbrin Bible ancientmanuscripts.com has such a pristine story of the Exodus of Moses. The story of Moses in England comes from a firsthand-eyewitness of the Exodus. However, to understand the source one must return to the time of Moses and locate the people who carried it to England.
By the time of the birth of Jesus the world had accumulated a wealth of prophecy about the coming of the Messiah. The stories had been told and retold for thousands of years to the point where they had been colored by culture, tradition and time. Jesus came into the world like a match to an already existing powder keg and exploded onto the human scene like the cataclysms of old. Each culture, tradition and geographic division integrated the story of Jesus and the Bible to merge into their individual beliefs and ancient traditions. The explosive entry of Jesus into the world didn’t function like the amalgamation it should have been. It didn’t bring people together. It didn’t gather traditions into a common pool for reassessment and realignment. It actually separated the world farther from each other. By the time of the Nicene Council, three hundred years after the death of Jesus, there were more Christian religions than there are today. In addition the history of Jesus had merged with every single culture and religion on the earth. Jesus became the greatest of the Buddha’s in the East, the prophet of Judaism and Hinduism, and the great prophet of Mohamed. Jesus became the fare-skinned prophet of the Americas and the hometown hero for the descendants of the Druid/Magi fraternity in Western Europe.
We have to thank Catholicism and the British born and educated Caesar Constantine for institutionalizing the life of Jesus in our Holy Bible, though he admittedly didn’t send out an edict to gather the story of Jesus from the four corners of the world. That was his greatest mistake. Had Constantine not institutionalized the life of Jesus the history of Jesus would be even more fragmented today. Constantine wasn’t a convert from Roman-based paganism. He was the descendant of Bishop Linus who had lived in Rome and returned to Britain to be the first bishop of the Culdean-based Christians in the first Century. (See “Drama of the Lost Disciples” http://www.ancientmanuscripts.com/books/drama.htm ) Constantine had been preconditioned to Christian conversion by the traditions of his ancestors in England. He eventually merged the two Roman Caesarships back together as one and moved the capital of the Roman Empire to Constantinople for a very important reason. Constantinople was both the gateway to the silk trade routes to the Far East and the crossroads of the story of Jesus from East and West. It made more sense to establish Christianity at the crossroads of tradition rather than to leave it in Rome where Christians had been persecuted or in his homeland in England where the British Christians dominated the story of Jesus for three hundred years after Jesus’ death. (See “Celt Druid and Culdee” http://www.ancientmanuscripts.com/books/celt.htm ) The British Culdee were the legitimate first above ground Christians after the death of Jesus. Christianity was first launched from Britain and her Christian following and not from Jerusalem or Rome.
Did Moses Influence The British Isles In His Day?
One of the very first biblical influences in Britain came at the time of Moses. According to an encyclopedic account of Scottish history, Pharaoh's daughter Scota in the time of Moses (1300 BC) married one of Judah's sons and traveled to Ireland in search of a place to settle. The couple was given land by the Irish king. The land became known as Scotland in honor of Scota.
Arthur C. Clark - Ireland's Cleopatra
“Does the blood of Egyptian pharaohs run through Irish veins today? Did an Irish Cleopatra lead a Gaelic army into battle in County Kerry? Is that her tomb over there across the stream? That hoary stone sunk into the ground amid the gorse in Foley's Glen?...
According to some sources, the story of Ireland's Egyptian princess dates back to 1700 B.C. when, says T.J. Barrington in Discovering Kerry, Gads - "with their iron spears" - invaded Ireland from Spain to avenge the death of a clansman who had gone over from Spain to explore Ireland and had been killed by the inhabitants. Those who organized this expedition were from the family of Miles, or Milesius, depending on the source consulted. Miles - a word meaning "soldier" in Latin - was a member of a warlike, aristocratic Gaelic family in Spain, with roots in Scythia, an area northwest of the Black Sea, now in the U.S.S.R. One source says Miles was "supposedly descended from Scythian nobles who had been expelled from Egypt and settled in Iberia [Spain]." Another, The History of Ireland to the Coming of Henry II, by Arthur Ua Clerigh notes that when Miles grew up "he went on his wanderings (from Spain) first to Scythia... and afterwards to Egypt where he married Scota (Scota ) the daughter of the Pharaoh Nectonibus."
Back in Spain, Scota bore Miles six sons. But then Miles, on the eve of his invasion of Ireland to avenge his uncle's death, died and his mantle fell on the shoulders of his Egyptian princess. Like Cleopatra, another renowned Egyptian woman, Scota did not shirk her responsibilities: with her six sons, and two other of Miles' sons from another union, she set out in a fleet of 30 ships some time about 1300 B.C.
Casualties, writes Barrington, were incurred almost immediately. "As they sailed westward, Erannan, the youngest of the sons, climbed the mast first to see Ireland, but fell and was drowned ...Ir, a third son, was rowing so hard that his oar snapped and he fell back into the boat and died..."
The fleet sailed on, however, and three days later landed at Kenmare Bay in County Kerry. The Gaels fought their way to Tara, their enemy's capital and, later, the place where the High Kings of Ireland were crowned.
There, they demanded surrender or battle - but got neither. Somehow, the enemy got the Gaels to withdraw in their fleet and while they were offshore a tempest sank many ships and drowned most of the surviving sons.
Enraged at their losses, the remaining Gaels beached their craft on the north shore of the beautiful Dingle Peninsula and the army began to march through the foothills of the Slieve Mish Mountains, hard by Ireland's Atlantic coast and not far from the present city of Tralee. It was there, in the most ferocious battle with the inhabitants, that the Gaelic invaders lost their Egyptian princess. "In yon cool glen, beside the mount, close by the wave," says one 17th-century poet, "fell Scota while pursuing the enemy across the hills."Though Scotad early in the fray, her forces went on to victory and it is she that is remembered. Says Thomas I. O'Sullivan in his 1931 Romantic Hidden Kerry, "Though she failed to stay the career of the foe, she died and gave her name to the land, for our island was Scota long before it was known as Hibernia."…
On the other hand, even modern scholars leave a bit of room for those of us with imagination… It is certainly true, moreover, that the Gaels did come to Ireland by the Late Bronze Age, and that they did bring with them the skills of iron-mongering. And some of the dates and names in the legend do accord with some of the accepted history of both Ireland and Egypt.
Though Scota's father, for instance, is called the "Pharaoh Nectonibus" by Ua Clerigh in his 1910 Irish history, a name not to be found among the lists of ancient Egyptian kings, his name bears a striking resemblance to those of two much later rulers: Nectanebo I and Nectanebo II, described by Martha Ross in Rulers and Governments of the World as "among the last Egyptian Pharaohs."
These rulers, moreover, "made attempts to gain Greek alliances" to stave off invaders from the East. It is not beyond the realm of possibility, therefore, to suggest that they could have also made alliances with the Scythians who, in the preceding centuries, had penetrated the Middle East as far as Palestine, and thus were on Egypt's border.
In A Folk Register, A History of Ireland in Verse, contemporary historian
The day of poets and iron men
Had dawned, and with a clang...
Long had they coursed, the sons of Mil
From Scythia's Black Sea shore,
Goidels (Gaels) who journeyed to fulfill
Their destiny of yore...
Extract from the book - "The Roots and Blood of the Scots"
An Overview From The Gaelic Annals (1500 BC To 2000 AD)
Around 1500 BC, in the Middle East there lived a man, one the Gaelic annals called "Fenius Farsa". He was born to be a "Prince of his people". Alas his twin brother was chosen before him, so although the elder of the two he decided that it would be wise to leave his homeland for greener pastures.
Five sons were born to Fenius Farsa. Two of these sons and their families followed the middle-aged patriarch on his travels. Leaving the area of the Middle East, this close knit tribe of family and servants migrated North to the area known as "Ancient Scythia". Finding either the climate too harsh, or the Scythians too warlike, the tribe of Fenius Farsa traveled South again to the warmer waters of the Aegean and the Ionian Seas. They settled in this area of Greece for a short period until hostilities with neighbouring tribes forced them to leave the mainland for the safety of the island of Crete.
Here in Crete, Fenius Farsa's tribe began to train themselves to be a band of mighty and powerful warriors, for if they were to survive as a tribe, they would have to defend themselves or face slavery.
It was in Crete, the ancient annals say, that Gaythelos, the grandson of Fenius Farsa became known as a great warrior and leader of a formidable force of mercenaries. His renown as a "Fighting Prince" gained the attention of the Pharaoh of Egypt, who hired Gaythelos and his mercenary force to fight his wars in the South and East of Egypt. Over the years Gaythelos became victorious and was appointed the Commanding General of the Egyptian army.
Meanwhile more and more of Fenius Farsa's people left Crete to enlist and bask in the amazing favor and wealth of the Egyptians. Eventually the majority of the tribe left Crete altogether to enjoy the pleasures and comforts of the worlds richest nation. So successful were Gaythelos and his forces in his wars for Egypt that Pharaoh rewarded him with his daughter's hand in marriage. The Egyptian Princess called Scota and her husband Gaythelos (Mil) were to have a tremendous influence on their people - the family and tribe of Fenius Farsa that had migrated from their ancient homeland in the Middle East. It was from the Princess Scota that the very root (etymon) of the tribal name Scot is derived, and it was the great-great-grandson of Scota who would call himself Heber Scot. (Eber is the father of Peleg and Joktan the biblical origins of all Hebrew nations) He was the prince and leader of his tribe at the time his people took on the tribal name Scot. It was from her husband's name Gaythelos or Gadelius that the people derived the name Gael.... So it was from this union of a warrior Prince from Crete and an Egyptian Princess that a national name was born.
