Jesus Was Born In September or October While The Shepherd’s Were Still Out In the Fields With Their Flocks By Night


Pagan customs and traditions were so popular in the days of Noah’s  great-grandson, Nimrod, that when Jesus was born approximately 3,000 years later, Christians tried to convert pagans by placing the birth of Jesus on the major holiday celebrating the pagan god of the sun.

What was the result of mixing the teaching of Jesus, God’s only Son, with the false sun god?

How many people know what these week long celebrations elevating Nimrod, as Mithras, the beloved sun god entailed?

This knowledge would send a chill down the spine of any human being with a pulse.

MYSTERY OF THE STURBRIDGE KEYS, subtitled, CHRISTMAS UNLOCKED, takes its characters back in time to discover first-hand where all of these popular and no-so-popular traditions and customs originated.

This historical fiction book also depicts how many of these insidious traditions still exist today, imbedded in the maligned rendition of the birth of Jesus. There is another reason for the season.

MYSTERY OF THE STURBRIDGE KEYS is based on accurate world, ancient, antediluvian and Bible history. It may be purchased as an eBook and softcover through iUniverse.com.

White Supremacy and Slavery vs Abolitionism and Freedom of Slaves in the USA is Featured in MYSTERY OF THE STURBRIDGE KEYS


White Supremacy fueled the start of the Civil War in the United States of America. The human ideal of the Union States of the North that people did not own people, won the war with the Confederate States of the rebel South who had years of slave holding heritage. During these years, the Underground Railroad was alive and well in the greater Sturbridge, Worcester, Northampton, area.

The Underground Railroad began in 1780. By the time reflected in the living museum at Old Sturbridge Village in Sturbridge, Massachusetts, 1830’s, the safe houses, called stations, were well traveled by Harriet Tubman and her soon to be freed former slaves.

Although slavery was not legal in the northern states, if a southern slave owner came looking for his runaway slaves, there was a penalty for people of the North who helped the fugitive slaves escape, since slavery was legal in the south.

Meet Harriet Tubman who led the way for over 300 former slaves; and Harriet Beecher Stowe who was so upset by the idea that people owned people and treated them unfairly, that she wrote about “Eliza,” based on a slave girl she had met.

Read about former Presidents Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Van Buren, the Battle of 1812, and the Seminole Indian Tribe at the time in Spanish Florida.

Meet Robert Carter III, a wealthy and prominent member of the planter class in Virginia, who owned hundreds of slaves going back to 1791. Carter had a change of heart and later released many slaves as freed men and women. He was so wealthy that President Jackson borrowed money from him, and President George Washington’s nephew proposed to Carter’s daughter.

Former President Jimmy Carter is a descendant of Robert Carter III, who was also known as King.  Carter III descended from William Strother, on his father’s side. Everyone at that time knew Carter III was descended from English royalty, going back to Charlemagne and William the Conqueror, and many other English kings. Presidents Zachary Taylor and John Tyler were also defended from Strother. President Jimmy Carter is also related to President Barack Obama. They are eighth cousins.

History has a way of repeating itself when we do not take heed of the lessons of the past.

This is a must read for people of all ages. This is a book based on accurate history, ancient history and Bible history. It is available in softcover at $13.00, and as an EBook at $3.99. http://www.iuniverse.com/Bookstore/BookSearchResults.aspx?Search=Mystery%20of%20the%20Sturbridge%20Keys
