The Sacred Mushroom and the Cross: Was Jesus Really a Big, Red Mushroom?

July 28th, 2020

An old book that still sells big is The Sacred Mushroom and the Cross by original scrolls team member John Marco Allegro (1923 - 1988).  His is a strange story indeed: in a very convincing manuscript, Allegro sets out to prove that Jesus was never a person, but a mushroom that was, supposedly, when eaten, hallucinogenic!  That got this Aramaic expert, the only non-Catholic on the team, expelled and exiled as an untouchable.  Actually, his book - which I spent some real money to obtain for YOU - is a well-thought out and annotated treatise on anthropology and especially of the use of hallucinogenics to provoke visions.   In the Apocalypses of Peter and Paul I put up shortly before this, I wouldn't doubt that these fellows were on mushrooms when (and if) they wrote their visions of Hell.  Of course, I don't believe in it, yet recent discoveries have revealed that the Temple crowd did indeed use marijuana in their temple services.  Actually, if they did that in the church these days, I could probably stay wake in there.   Here are some excerpts of the premise of the book, and some takes from Allegros actual interviews.
