For the first time ever in print, The Virgin and The Priest unravels the Infancy Narratives of the New Testament to reveal how they were compiled to protect the truth of Jesus' parentage from those deemed incapable of receiving it. An ancient formula, explaining why "holy births" in the messianic lineage resulted from questionable sexual relationships, was insinuated into the gospel narratives. These trysts of the Old Testament heroes were necessary in order to "purify" Jesus' ancestry and allow his genetic inheritance to be "sinless." Far from advocating a miraculous birth, the New Testament informs us that Zacharias, the priestly father of John the Baptist, was Jesus' biological father.
