It took almost two thousand years to come to light but the 'gospel truth' is finally revealed ... all thanks to an overlooked Christian relic in the Basilica di San Marco in Venice, Italy.

The Throne of St. Mark tell us the true story of Christian origins. We just have to learn to understand how it was designed to 'speak' to us and future generations.

Remember the Da Vinci Code?

This is the real thing.

The Throne of St. Mark was established some two thousand years ago as a giant encoded message in ancient Hebrew letters and symbols. Now that the code has finally been cracked it will likely rank as the most important Biblical artifact ever.

So what does the Throne of St. Mark tell us?

Utterly amazing things.

It announces for all who can hear that Jesus wasn't the Christ. Indeed he never claimed to be this figure. This was something entirely made up by western Churches.

It is a truth still known to the descendants of Jesus' first followers in the contemporary Middle East. Ask any of them who Jesus was and they will tell you that Jesus wasn't the one predicted by Moses and the Jewish prophets. Indeed, Jesus was only the messenger for someone else.

Indeed if you look carefully at the earliest gospel references you'll see that Middle Eastern people have always known this truth:

A) Those sayings where Jesus was understood to deny that he is the messiah:

• “But what about you?" Jesus asked. "Who do you say I am?" Simon Peter answered, "You are the Christ." And he rebuked Peter and enjoined His disciples that they should tell no man that He was the Christ.” [cf Mt. xvi: 20; Lk ix:19 – 21; Orig. Comm. Matt. xii; Tert AM iv:26]

• Those who were healed shouted out ‘Thou art the Messiah, the Son of God’ and Jesus rebuked them much.’ [Diat. vi:52 - 54; Mk iii. 9f, Lk vi. 18f]

• And those that had plagues and unclean spirits, as soon as they beheld him, would fall, and cry out, and say, Thou art the Son of God. And he rebuked them and ordered them to be silent. [Lk iv:41 from Tert. AM iv:8]

• And the demoniac and cried with a loud voice and said, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, Son of the most high God? … and Jesus commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man [Mk v:1-20; Lk viii: 26 – 36; cf Tert. AM iv 20]

• a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging. When he heard that Jesus was coming he began to shout, "Jesus thou Son of David, have mercy on me!" … Jesus stopped and said to him, "What do you want me to do for you?" The blind man said, "Rabbi, I want to see." "Go," said Jesus, "your [new] faith has just healed you." [Mk x:46 – 50; Lk xviii:35 – 40; Tert AM iv:37]

• Jesus said “Many will come claiming that I am the Christ and will deceive many. Do not follow them.” [Mt xxiv:5 from Tert. AM iv:39 cf. Lk xxi:8; Mk xiii:6]

• And the chief priest and teachers of the law said “If you are the Christ, tell us." Jesus answered, "If I tell you, you will not believe me.” [Lk xxii:67]

• Pilate asked Jesus, "Are you the Christ?" Jesus replied ‘that is what you say” [Lk xxiii:3 from Tert AM iv:42 cf Matt xxvi:62,63]

B) Those sayings where Jesus was understood to announce someone else as the messiah:

• Jesus said “I have come and ye have not received me: when another shall come him ye will receive.” [Iren Haer v:25:4 cf Jn v:43]

• Jesus said “the Father will give you another Paraclete to be with you forever … The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives among you …” [Jn xiv:16f]

• Jesus said “I will not leave you bereaved; I will come to you in another little one.” [Jn xiv:18 Peshitta]

• Jesus said “when I will go I will send you the Paraclete.” [Jn xvi:7 from Coptic Manichaean Kephalaia19:7]

• Jesus said “I will go to my Father and will send the Paraclete straightaway to you.” [Jn xvi:10 from Act Arch. 31]

• Jesus said “If I go not away, that Paraclete shall not come to you; but if I go away, I will send Him to you.” [Jn xvi:7]

• Jesus said “I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now; but when the Paraclete is come, He will teach you all things, and will bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” [Jn xvi:12 from Act Arch. 28]

• Jesus said “Whosoever shall deny me and my sayings in this sinful and adulterous generation, the Son of man also will deny him when he comes. For the Son of Man is about to come and reward each man according to his works.” [cf. Diat. xxiii:49,50; Mk viii:38]

• Jesus said “the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him” [Lk xii:40]

• Jesus said “when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?" [Lk xviii:8]

• Jesus said “whoever acknowledges me before men, the Son of Man will also acknowledge him before the angels of God.” [Lk. xii:8]

• Jesus said to his disciples “I tell you the truth, you will not finish going through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes.” [Mt x:23]

• And Jesus said unto them, “Verily I say unto you, There be here now some standing that shall not taste death, until they see the kingdom of God come with strength, and the Son of man who cometh in his kingdom.” [Diat. xxiv:1 - 3; Mk ix. 1,Mt. xvi. 28b]

• Jesus said “… the Son of man shall sit on his throne” [cf Mt xxv:31]

• Jesus said “Watch at all times, and pray, that ye may be worthy to escape from all the things that are to be [in Jerusalem] and that ye may stand before the Son of man” [Lk xxi:36]

• The high priest said to him, “I adjure you by the living God to tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God.” Jesus said to him “You say that. But I say to you that after me you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of power.” [Mt. xxvi:63, 64 Peshitta]

All of these passage just listed have always been understood to prove that Jesus came to announce someone else. This is the very message of the Throne of St. Mark. Its secret codes which adorn each side of the object explicitly identify that St. Mark himself was the original messiah of Christianity. Yes folks, this is a real live Da Vinci Code founded in historical reality.

Someone designed an ancient throne to commemorate the historical enthronement of St. Mark the original author of the gospel and put the whole message in a secret code later borrowed by the likes of Leonardo Da Vinci and others.

There's an inscription on the front of the object written in ancient Hebrew mirror letters.

There is also a word embedded in that 'backwards inscription' written in the obscure alphabet of the Samaritans - you know the ones who appear in the 'Good Samaritan' story of the gospel.

When all the codes and symbols on the back, side and front of the throne are put together they tell a secret and ultimately repressed story about the origins of Christianity which have never been revealed until now.


A fascinating read with surprising twists and turns as the argument develops. Stephan Huller pulls together information from pertinent sources--historical writers of the first and second century, Jewish and Pagan religious practices of the time, archeological insights, Christian artifacts--and proposes an intriguing new interpretation of the formative period of the Christian movement. Imaginative, thrilling, intriguing, daring, and enlightening.

‘The Real Messiah’ is one of those too-rare achievements: a completely new paradigm that reshuffles the scholarly deck and that by a genuine reconsideration of the evidence, not by substituting fantasy for evidence.

Stephan Huller has been thoughtfully pursuing the questions of Christian origins by looking into some interesting connections with parallel Samaritan events. Now he has come up with some startling conclusions about Mark. Well researched and well written. A scholarly book that reads like a murder mystery. Well done!

Huller’s command of the primary sources is phenomenal. You might still be unconvinced of his claims but you will have to work hard to refute them.

Stephan Huller has written one of those rare books one sees once or twice in a decade. The Real Messiah lays hold of and unfolds a completely new paradigm or model of reality; and sheds unexpected new light on virtually everything it touches. It touches all aspects of the core values and master story of our culture, from that critical creative moment in which both Christianity and Rabbinic Judaism were born 2000 years ago, down to this very present moment of Judeo-Christian efforts at rapprochment. Huller proposes that the biblical Jesus story must be reconsidered in the light of evidence regarding the true nature the real Messiah of Judaism and Christianity. His argument is pristinely and meticulously developed, and illustrated with demanding empirical evidence. The Real Messiah is well written, an engaging narrative, an entertaining ride through a vital phase of ancient history. It will challenge and perhaps unseat most everything that you took for granted in your philosophy and theology. This work must not be ignored.
