John the Baptist, or John of the Waters, studied with the mystical Essenes at Qumran, as did his cousin, Jesus the Nazarene. Both were trained in the metaphysical arts of shamanism at an early age. The Nazarene was the Nazareth-Essene, or the Essene from Nazareth. Jesus was born in Nazareth, NOT Bethlehem. That detail was a lie.
Jesus later traveled the world during his lost years with his Great Uncle, Joseph of Arimathea, the richest private citizen in the world, and also an Essene Jew. He owned a fleet of trading ships and supplied valuable raw tin from the mines of England to the entire Roman Empire and beyond. It was also his fancy tomb that the body of Jesus was wrapped in the Shroud of Turin and placed into on Good Friday, before rising that night from the dead. He is Risen.
Mary Magdalene was a High Priestess in the Egyptian Cult of Isis, and was highly trained as a Tantric master in the Art of Sex Magic. When her eyes met Jesus at the well, they both knew their lives would forever be changed. Mary was the Primary Disciple who would often "kiss Jesus on the lips." Jesus was a revolutionary Jew for accepting all people as equal, including lowly women, lepers, adulterers and even evil tax collectors! All humans were welcome into his version of heaven and God's Love.
The real bombshell: Jesus and Mary had two children, one girl and one boy. Jesus' son is the biggest secret in human history, the proverbial Holy Grail.
The Essenes were refugees from Atlantis after it exploded in the north Mediterranean Sea. They formed a new community in Alexandria, and soon spread north to Qumran and Damascus. Their entire culture centered around training and preparing John the Baptist and Jesus the Messiah for their history-changing roles. Jesus traveled with his uncle to England to study with the Druids and to Tibet to study with the Buddhists. As a shaman, he was trained in the different types of demons from the underworld and also how to perform exorcisms of those demons. That is traditional shaman work.
After the Crucifixion, Jesus and Mary went to Syria with the children, and legend has it, Mary and her daughter migrated to France on Joseph's fleet of ships where she died, but the son's life is a grand mystery, even to me, and Dan Brown.
(it took years of study and a solo trip to Israel to unravel this story. Shroud photo was colorized by a single wave of the hand of Sri Satya Sai Baba in India in front of a Christian visitor who brought it to the temple.)
