He was the former president of International Exchange School and has taught school 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.
The Tribe of Dan: Traveler/Merchant - Continues
by Glenn Kimball
I am impressed by the fact that when Montezuma was looking for a place to build his great city (Mexico City) that what he was looking for was an eagle with a serpent in his talons. Montezuma was an Aztec whose people said they came from a far away land and conquered the peaceful-merchant Toltecs. I can only imagine that the first visits of the Aztecs to Mesoamerica came on a merchant voyage from the Far East. The Aztecs called themselves the “Red Men” and the only other people to call themselves “Red Men” were from India, Egypt and the ocean-merchant Phoenicians. It is critical to note that the Phoenicians mixed with their captives, the tribe of Dan, and sailed the world. They were the ones who took the original alphabet to the Greeks and who were the Saxons (meaning sons of Jacob) who invaded Britain and left us with the Kolbrin Bible. http://www.ancientmanuscripts.com/books/kolbrin.htm The Kolbrin is a first and foremost a book of wisdom. From the hundreds of you who have read the Kolbrin and made comments I am impressed with one common element. Many of you have said that it didn’t matter if the Kolbrin was the “Word of God” or not because the advice from the Kolbrin was worth every penny. Many have suggested that the Kolbrin could not have been written by one man alone. No one has that much wisdom. The serpent of Dan is the symbol for wisdom.
The serpent/dragon of Mexico was named Questzaquatl, the symbol of the fair bearded God creator of the world who promised he would someday return and bring an era of peace to His people. The Native Americans didn’t have beards and were not Caucasians. That is why Christopher Columbus records in his diary that the natives on the isle of San Salvador greeted him with honor as if he were a god. Apparently this was not the first time the natives had seen white men. Jacob finished his special blessing for Dan by saying “I have waited for thy salvation oh Lord”. Jacob was waiting for the return of God too, a tradition which matches the Native American tales exactly. The tribe of Dan was prolific and by the time they left Egypt the numbers of their warriors were in the tens of thousands. Jacob's prophecy in Genesis 49:17 says: "Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward." It was one of the princes of the tribe of Dan replaced the serpent with an eagle.
“Dan's position in the journey from Egypt was on the north of the Tabernacle, with Asher and Naphtali. The standard of the tribe was of white and red, and the crest upon it, an eagle, the great foe to serpents, which had been chosen by the leader instead of a serpent, because Jacob had compared Dan to a serpent. Ahiezer substituted the eagle, the destroyer of serpents, as he shrank from carrying an adder upon his flag. It may prove worthwhile to consider the possible connection to the tribe of Dan whenever an eagle is used as the symbol of subsequent leaders or nations." (Church, J. R. GUARDIANS OF THE GRAIL...AND THE MEN WHO PLAN TO RULE THE WORLD! Oklahoma City, OK: Prophecy Publications, 1991.)
In the 12th century, a Jewish writer in Spain whose works influenced the Kabbalah, named Antares, the brightest star in Scorpio, "Kesil" or "Akrabh" the crowned serpent. By this designation, Aben Ezra indicated that Jews understood the serpent to be the actual emblem of Dan. "Sir William Drummond asserted that in the zodiac which the patriarch Abraham knew [Scorpio] was an eagle... "Aben Ezra identified Scorpio or Antares, with the Kesil; although that people generally considered these stars as a Scorpion, their Akrabh, and it is claimed andcribed it on the banners of Dan as the emblem of the tribe whose founder was 'a serpent by the way.' When thus shown it was a crowned snake or Basilisk." (Allen, Richard Hinckley, STAR NAMES: THEIR LORE AND MEANING, NY: Dover Publications Inc., 1963)
“To this day, the scorpion is said to be the archenemy of the constellation Orion for whenever Scorpio rises in the East, Orion sets in the West: "...Orion was placed among the stars in such a way that when Scorpio rises, Orion sets. Orion, the Hunter is the heavenly representation of the earthly Nimrod, "a mighty hunter before the Lord"—whose spiritual deception of the post-flood civilization was frustrated by God, who is consequently vilified as Scorpio. (Gen. 11:1-9) This interpretation of Scorpio is presented by Alexander Hislop in The Two Babylons, which also identifies the constellation Orion and Babylonian god, Nimrod, as the Egyptian god, Osiris:
"The name of a scorpion in Chaldee is Akrab; but Ak-rab, thus divided, signifies 'THE GREAT OPPRESSOR,' and this is the hidden meaning of the Scorpion as represented in the Zodiac. That sign typifies him who cut off the Babylonian god, and suppressed the system he set up. It was while the sun was in Scorpio that Osiris in Egypt 'disappeared' (WILKINSON), and great lamentations were made for his disappearance. Another subject was mixed up with the death of the Egyptian god; but it is specially to be noticed that, as it was in consequence of a conflict with a scorpion that Orion was 'added to the stars,' so it was when the scorpion was in the ascendant that Osiris 'disappeared'."
The rest of the amazing story of Dan is contained in the small volume . I can’t imagine any library being complete without a copy. It is as important to have a copy of this volume as it is to have a copy of “Drama of the Lost Disciples”. http://www.ancientmanuscripts.com/books/drama.htm . With the “Kolbrin Bible”, “Drama of the Lost Disciples” and this tome on Dan the world of religious history takes on new meaning. These are the three of the most important books on my site.
When you add to these three volumes the precious “He Walked the Americas” by L. Taylor Hansen from USC and Maya Cosmogenesis 2012 suddenly there is new meaning to the tribe of Dan and the secret to the spreading of the understanding of God to the whole world. I have a special Easter treat for those of you who obtain any combination of these books. If you call me on the phone I have found some copies of the teachings of the Apostle John in the Far East. I have had to buy these out of used book stores around the country because they are out of print. There are just a few of them and first come first served. Remember that that in John 21: 25 John said that “Many things Jesus did, I suppose if they were all written the world itself could not contain all the books that should be written.” These are some of those books to which he was referring. The verses in John just before that read John 22-23, “Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? Follow thou me. Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that this disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall not die; but, what is that to thee?” talking to Peter. Jesus was telling Peter this after his resurrection. What comment could there be more important than one made by the ascended Jesus? Of course John would know about the many things Jesus did in the world. He didn’t die. John survived the boiling in oil incident on the Isle of Patmos where he wrote the Book of Revelations. His post crucifixion mission was to the Far East. He took with him “The Bee Bible”. The Beehive was the symbol of all the twelve tribes collectively. That book still survives in our day as part of the Eastern Christian Canon.
