Overview

This methodical research diary has been a classic 'go to' in this genre for years. Updated in October, 2013, this edition is densely packed with pictures, maps, and historical sources. Her amazing ability to pull together a comprehensive view of the people behind Islamic fundamentalism is bound to change many views.
There is an undeniable Jewish and Christian history in India. By examining India's place in Biblical history the author has created a bold new view of Jesus, the crucifixion, the Rod of Moses, his real marriage (surprisingly not to Magdalene) his children, and the past, present, and future of the religion he founded, Christianity.

Olsson's DNA of God Project nearly brought together two countries on the brink of war. She traces Grail legends to Prester John's escape from India with the Holy Grail. Her list of firsts is extensive. If the DNA of God Project succeeds, this will change the world. The information is that powerful.
As guest speaker at Washington, DC Peace Conference, she offered solutions to Kashmir terrorism and efforts to rescue Roza Bal tomb. She has been a frequent radio commentator, and guest contributor to several International film documentaries about her research, including the Film Board of India.

Internationally established as the leading world expert on the tomb of Roza Bal, this is cutting edge research in a huge well illustrated book about the missing years of Jesus, written by a legend whose real adventures exceed her nickname Indiana Sue. This book will ripple through the future with chilling consequences.

    Jesus Had a Life AFTER the Crucifixion

    Suzanne Olsson has written a plausible, more robust picture of the personality known as Jesus in the West which deserves the attention of both serious scholars and believers who wonder about the veracity of some of the claims about his life. Not an arm-chair scholar, Suzanne has spent years with Persian, Afghani, Pakistani, Kashmiri, Indian, and Sri Lankan professionals and ordinary people in a search for the Jesus beyond the Gospels. She was caught up in the aftermath of '9/11' on the other side of the Kyber Pass. She often traveled by foot and animal power to identify the legendary sites associated with the major figures of Hebrew history and the Eastern ministry of Jesus and some of his disciples beyond the Tigris and Euphrates and down through India to Sri Lanka. Old documents and artifacts accessed by Suzanne, with the assistance of indigenous scholars, reveal numerous corroborations of the life of Jesus and his family before and after his crucifixion. Material written in ancient Persian, Pali-Prakit 'ancient Indian languages', Sanskrit, Vedic, Hebrew and other regional scripts fleshes out 'literally' the saga of Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Solomon, David, and Joseph and Jesus. This historical evidence, unknown to all but a few Western scholars, place these legendary archetypes, along with their female partners like Sarah, Mary, and Marjan, in real time and actual places. These mystical figures are grounded in history by their actual homes, temples, and tombs whose existence has been lost to the Western mind for almost two millennia. A Timely Book. The recent plethora of sensational books in Europe and America about Jesus and Mary Magdalene, their bloodlines, the Mother Mary and Jesus' siblings, the angel Gabriel, and a virgin birth demonstrates that millions now question the unsubstantiated assumptions of the supernatural theology of Western religions. However, such speculative books would have a small market of credulous readers if the public had general access to the more authentic Hebrew and Buddhist literature and artifacts of the East in Olsson's book. This review provides only a sample of Olsson's well-documented answers to the questions unanswered by Western historiography. The questions include: Who was the angel Gabriel who announced to Mary her conception of Jesus? Who were the magi who visited Jesus at the time of his birth? Why would the birth of an 'illegitimate' son of a 'poor' carpenter attract the attention of magi from afar and from Herod the local Roman governor? Gabriel was likely one of the beings described in the Bible as the 'gods who had intercourse with the daughters of men.' The magi who visited Jesus appear to have been Hebrew kings or kings-in-waiting who were members of Jesus' own royal family tree descended from Noah. They acted as if Jesus was a son of one of the Biblical gods who was destined to become a magi-priest-king. Why was Jesus described as physically different form others? Where did he spend the years between age 12 and 30? What was his Egyptian connection? Jesus, described as one with unique physical features, and light hair and eyes, was associated with the beings responsible for Adam and others considered progeny of 'miraculous' conceptions. As a member of the ruling elite he was reportedly educated in Egypt in preparation for assuming his birthright as the king of the area known as Kashmir. What did the title 'King of the Jews' mean as it was reportedly inscribed above Jesus' head on the cross? Why was Jesus missing from the tomb provided by Joseph of Arimathea after the crucifixion? And why could his disciples see and touch him later? What happened that led to the myth of resurrection? His expected future as the king of the Jewish colony in Kashmir merited the title used in irony by his Sanhedrin opponents who wanted him killed. Taken from the cross before dusk by Pontius Pilate's soldiers who had been ordered to go eas

    A reviewer

    Suzanne Olsson is to be commended for her perseverance in trying to get the world community involved in the scientific and archeaological study of these graves and the people of Kashmir. This book is so much more than her personal travel journal, which it started out to be. The ideas and ancient eastern history are fascinating to consider. Any one who is on their own personal journey to understand and appreciate the historical Jesus will gain much from reading this book. The world thanks you, Suzanne!!!

    This is An Entirely New Jesus

    The author lived in India and Paksitan where she gathered the information for this book. By the time I got to the last page, I had to sit quiet for a while and digest everything I just read. It was all news to me and it was all mind boggling. Although the book could have used a better editor, this did not detract from reading it. I am not a 'religious' person, but I am a philosopher with an abiding interest in ancient cultures, including Biblical history, archaeology and astrobiology. I have been pleasantly surprised to find this elucidation to be not only straighforward and accessible, but also receptive to and willing to consider other viewpoints from scholars and critical thinkers outside of tradition. The Christian and Jewish historians, the Hindu philosophers, and even scientific non-religious ideas offers a multi-dimensional perspective. This is good reading for anyone who shares my unique interests. Jesus' education at Taxila was one of the best chapters for me. I could not imagine how advanced the education system really was even before the first century of Jesus. Our modern education system still follows the guidelines that worked in ancient times and explains how Jesus got to be Jesus the thinker and philosopher and founder of a new world religion. The Buddhist and Hindu connections is something that no one in the west has much knowledge about, at least it's something I didn't know about but I intend to study more thoroughly. The Greek Ptolymies who ruled India at the time of Jesus makes for understanding why he would have a reason to return to India. She fit the missing pieces together brilliantly and now it all makes sense. The author laid out a very convincing argument for Jesus surviving the crucifixion and returning to Kashmir. Yet she handled this delicate Christian article of absolute faith with grace and without demeaning Jesus or Christianity. In fact I came away with the impression that the author is very pro-Jesus without being an inconoclast about traditional Christianity. Finally, in the end when the author talks about the destruction of ancient relics and places, and her lifetime commitment to getting the DNA, I could feel anger and sadness welling up inside of me as I cheered her on silently in my heart. Like looking for DNA on the Shroud of Turin for comparison, the author begs to let science not dogma determine the truth. All in all, I would say this book brings a whole new perspective on Christianity and Jesus. Overwhelming with new ideas this was far and above a unique and interesting read.

    Newest Research Proves Jesus' Real Tomb in India

    This book is amazing in the new information and new perspectives offered about Jesus surviving crucifixion, and his real grave in Kashmir. A must read for all religions. New information about the Buddha's Hebrew family connections. Humankind's knowledge of the historical Jesus is buried under mounds of political power play over the millennia. Uncovering this knowledge and the true significance is no small task. Over time it will liberate all major religions, but requires perspectives from lost generations, which author has excitedly touched upon. In years to come we will still reference these contributions, follow the trails she blazed, and uncover new things, as we throw back our veils of illusion. She has properly muddied the waters. Includes 37 original maps and photos, plus first hand accounts of author's years of dangerous travels on the Old Silk Road.

    I read the second edition (2012) of this book and want to revise

    I read the second edition (2012) of this book and want to revise my initial impression of the previous edition. The author has put tremendous effort into addressing the problems with the previous edition and it shows. The most dominant thing that springs to my mind when I sum up this book is; The accumulation of research presented is phenomenal, and now it is backed up with sources. The author obviously has a passion for this subject to have done so much work in presenting data gathered from archives, monasteries, forgotten tomes of history, cultural facts, little known and difficult to access documents, etc. I say "this subject" but it is difficult to narrow down the broad scope represented in this book to one focus. The idea that Jesus survived the crucifixion is, of course, not new. The idea that he returned to India to travel and minister to those there, even though it has been written about many years ago, is a strange, even heretical, idea to contemporary Christians. Yet there are ancient documents found and recorded in the area of Tibet and Kashmir that compel one to at least consider the possibility. Then she introduces 'cultural conflicts' that emphasize the ongoing and relentless attacks upon the churches that Jesus founded. It was a shocking eye-opener for me. I do not want to unravel the mystery of this book, but leave that to the next reader. There are so many bits of collected facts, myths and legends here, that each reader will have to take his time and consider what it could mean NOW. I say now, because this may be the time for this great mystery to be revealed.
    This doesn't represent the whole of it. She also dangles before us the fascinating idea of a data bank of DNA from the remains of early Christian tombs, including those reputed to be of the family of Jesus. How can one resist such an appealing prospect? When I read of the entombed remains that still exist, I yearned for such testing to be performed before these same remains are destroyed by war or enemies of the Christian faith. The author rightly describes the urgency of getting this job done. Politics, governments, religious antagonism have stood in the way but perhaps now is the time. Of course, even if dna is found and the results become a matter of record, and that DNA is compared to others, ancient and still living, what will it solve?
    One thing that made a real impact on me was when the author spent Christmas huddled alone in the Roza Bal tomb, surrounded by soldiers and terrorists. I would not have had the stamina or courage under any circumstances to remain as long as she did- just to gather every shred of evidence. And she did a superb job of it! Several things stated in the New Testament books took on a whole new slant for me. This book was an educational experience for me, and I'm glad I read it and will be interested in any further research done in this area. The book remains on my shelf as a valuable resource.
    Many of the questions asked of the reader can't be answered yet, but the questions needed to be asked. This provocative book offers enticing avenues that we should explore further. I DO recommend this revised edition. It will probably astound you.

    Sapan Kapoor, Journalist, via Delhi, India, 05 June 2010 at 20:07 Re: Review of `Jesus in Kashmir.'

    I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate this author for the wonderful book she have written. I was quite inspired by her findings, especially in Chapter 14 about Cultural Terrorism. I really appreciate the fact that she actually acknowledged the stand of India on the issue of Kashmir. We feel vindicated.I would like to thank Sue Olsson on behalf of the people of India. We in India strongly believe the partition was a mistake that should have been avoided and must not be repeated because there will be severe consequences for the world at large of another partition of India. Please understand Kashmir won't remain independent for long as she is aware that groups with 'other interests' are waiting to snatch it and then control it at any given time. The day Kashmir is gone India will also be gone. No government in India will survive even for an hour if Kashmir is lost to those 'other' interests. India cannot under any circumstances allow this to happen. As she rightly mentioned in the book it is a big game being played by outsiders. You can not solve any issue by using militancy and terrorism. Can you? As she rightly mentioned in this book if it is indeed established that Jesus had actually spent his last moments in Kashmir it will be good news for the people of Kashmir. That will open the new gates of opportunities for them. For this we need to preserve those sites of historical importance. This book does a wonderful job for this noble cause. I hope many and many Kashmiris read this book of hers. In the end I again congratulate her for the efforts put in writing this inspirational book. This book can do wonders if more and more people can read it especially Kashmiris. Thanks and Regards, Sapan Kapoor.

    (note: Sapan could not post this directly from India and asked for assistance to make this review available. His articles appear in India and can be located throughout the Internet)
