I was going to try and do a little more research so I could take part in this conversation, especially after a History Channel "Nostradamus Effect" show that recently aired, I found this topic interesting.
From what I understand the book/religion that produced it, is legit (?!)
The Kolbrin Bible is truly special. This copy of the Kolbrin comes from the version from India. It was originally called the Bronze Book which survived the burning of the Glastonbury Abbey in 1184 AD. That is critical, because the Glastonbury Abbey is located squarely on the ground that was gifted to Joseph of Arimathea and the Virgin Mary by Christian King Avaragus after the crucifixion of Christ. The family of Avaragus launched all our western versions of Christianity, from Catholicism to Protestant churches. His family owned the Palace of the Britains in Rome, which still stands today across from the Vatican, where Paul and Peter lived and launched Christianity as we know it. The Glastonbury Abbey site became a sovereign nation almost until the time of the burning of the Abbey. This is where Joseph of Arimathea began building a library which eventually survives in the form of Cambridge and Oxford to this day. Edward the First of England tried to destroy this document for several reasons. Though no one can really know his mind set, we can presume that this version of the Bible challenged the Catholic Bible as being the only word of God. It also told a much broader story of the creation of the earth and Adam and Eve than the Bible and therefore was considered blasphemy. The Kolbrin may not mimic our versions of the Bible, but it is the farthest thing from blasphemy. This is the surviving document taken from the original tales told by the Virgin Mary and Joseph of Arimathea. The story of the creation of the world and the people who were here when Adam and Eve came to the earth is vindicated by modern geology, astronomy, scientific theory and other surviving manuscripts from all four corners of the world. It is my opinion that this is the lost Bible of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel who were captured by the Assyrians in the 8th Century BC and taken all along the length of Europe into Britain before Joseph of Arimathea returned with the Virgin Mary. Their story is clear in this document and extends backwards in time to the exodus from Egypt before the tribes were lost. That perspective is priceless beyond measure. The moral codes of this book are worth the effort.
Over the years, the abbey has become the gravitational center of Britain's legendary universe, largely because of its role in the creation and development of the legends of Joseph of Arimathea and King Arthur. We will attempt to show how and why the abbey came to play the role that it did and to evaluate the importance of Joseph and Arthur to Glastonbury's place of prominence. Along the way, we have found it necessary to make certain speculations. We have endeavored to ensure that none of them are of the "wild and baseless" variety, but they are speculations, nonetheless, and we have tried to label them as such. Joseph, a Jew from the town of Arimathea, was an early first century figure who played a small supporting role in the swirl of events surrounding Christ's crucifixion, as recounted for us in the Biblical Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John (1). Arthur was the great King of the Britons, according to legend, who successfully led his armies against the Saxon invaders of his homeland, and who established his glorious and far-reaching empire based on the, then revolutionary principles of nobility and chivalry.
Stories of a sacred vessel dear to the Celts became entwined with the story of Christ's Last Supper and the Christian Holy Grail which inspired quests and crusades across England, Europe and the Far East. The Glastonbury and Somerset legends involve the boy Jesus together with his Great-Uncle, Joseph of Arimathea building Glastonbury's first wattle and daub church. These legends gave rise to the continuing cult of the Virgin on the site of the present Lady Chapel and inspired the title 'Our Lady St. Mary of Glastonbury', which is still used today. After the crucifixion of Jesus lore has it that Joseph of Arimathea (who according to the Bible donated his own tomb for Christ's interment after the Crucifixion) came to Britain, bearing the Holy Grail - the cup used by Christ at the Last Supper and later by Joseph to catch his blood at the crucifixion. When Joseph landed on the island of Avalon, he set foot on Wearyall Hill - just below the Tor. Exhausted, he thrust his staff into the ground, and rested. By morning, his staff had taken root - leaving a strange oriental thorn bush - the sacred Glastonbury Thorn. For safe keeping, Joseph is said to have buried the Holy Grail just below the Tor at the entrance to the Underworld. Shortly after he had done this, a spring, now known as Chalice Well, flowed forth and the water that emerged brought eternal youth to whosoever would drink it. Intertwining the myths and legends of Glastonbury Abbey's history, it is widely believed that finding The Holy Grail Joseph is said to have hidden was years later the purpose behind the quests of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.
On May 25, 1184, a devastating fire swept through the monastery, destroying all buildings and treasures except one room and the bell tower. Reconstruction began immediately, funded by the abbey's significant income supplemented by generous donations from King Henry II. Excavations indicate the ruined nave was patched up enough to host services for nearly 30 years while the new church was built. But within only a five years of the fire, in 1189, the Lady Chapel was completed and consecrated. It still stands at the west end of the site, its unusual position due to the fact it replaced the old Church of St. Mary, the most ancient and sacred site on the abbey grounds. In 1191, the monks of Glastonbury Abbey claimed to have made a very important discovery during the reconstruction work: the grave of King Arthur. They described a Celtic grave and a lead cross with a Latin inscription identifying the body as Rex Arthurus. The full inscription on the cross, which does not survive, was recorded as:

Egyptian Texts of the Bronzebook: The First Six Books of The Kolbrin Bible The Egyptian Texts of The Bronzebook: The First Six Books of The Kolbrin Bible is all that remains of a 3600-year old anthology penned by Egyptian academicians and scribes after the Hebrew Exodus. The result of a regional search for the one true G-d of Abraham, it offers alternate accounts of Exodus and Noah's Flood. Written in Egyptian Hieratic, first translated to Phoenician and then into English, it describes a planet the Egyptians called the "Destroyer." According to recently translated Sumerian texts, this object (also known as Nibiru or Planet X) is in a 3600-year orbit around our sun. The Egyptians say it caused Noah's Flood and the Plagues of Exodus. Like the Druids, Sumerians and Mayans, they also warn us of its imminent return and of yet another Biblical tribulation.
Celtic Texts of the Coelbook: The Last Five Books of The Kolbrin Bible Authored by Celtic priests when the first Gospels of the New Testament were being created, the Celtic Texts of the Coelbook (the last five books of The Kolbrin Bible) documents the fusion of Celtic and Druid mysticism, Judaism and Egyptian anthropology. Some regard it as a key Celtic wisdom text because it includes a revealing biography of Jesus with several never-before published first-person quotes. This work is rooted in a 3600-year-old Egyptian text (the first six books of The Kolbrin Bible) written following the Exodus. It describes how Noah's Flood and the Ten Plagues of Exodus were caused by a planet (also known as Nibiru or Planet X) that orbits our sun every 3600 years. The Egyptians called it the "Destroyer" and the Celtic priests called it the "Frightener."
