Of course there is. However, you seem to have stepped in some misinformation along your way. Allow me to explain.
From what I am now hearing is that there was and is a group called the Priory De Scion (if I spelled it right) and that they protected the
ancient secrets of Christianity.
No. There is not and never has been a "Priory of Sion" (there are various spellings); it is a fictional organization popularized by Dan Brown's
book "The DaVinci Code."
I am also hearing there are some documents that Jesus wrote himself and are hidden?
Perhaps; who knows? Are you referring to the Dead Sea Scrolls, or the Nag Hammadi Library? These are documents discovered relatively recently that are
contemporary with the original manuscripts of the Bible (what survived the chopping block, as it were). They are widely believed to be genuine and
some place their value even greater than the Bible due to the tampering done to the latter by the "Councils." I don't know if any of it is
attributed to Jesus Himself... I don't think so though.
Actually, many believe that Jesus was an Essene -- a very orthadox Jewish sect -- which is widely considered to have been a Gnostic Brotherhood/Order.
Indeed, the Red Words are cryptic and can lend themselves to many an interpretation. It's interesting to me to see how different people see it and
how they differ in their opinions. I have a rather... "unorthodox" conception of Christianity, but I do consider myself Christian.
Look up "Gnostic Christianity" or "Gnosticism" in Google and you'll find plenty to keep you reading for a while.
Personally, I don't believe any of it but could this be why "Christian" Masons consider themselves as Christian Masons?
No. They call themselves Christians because that's what they are.
And could this have anything to do with the templar letter that I discovered written by Hugh Mccurdy?
Never heard of him. Who is he?
Oh and I think Mr. Toasted is mistaken. It doesn't sound to me as though he found the right answers, whatever road he went down.
