Some day you need to learn to think outside the box of the Bible. If you memorize one book, you limit your field of literacy to being lead by the
nose like a beast.
Anyone knows Mt. Zion is the high ground, strategic. Anyone knows that the Temple didn't exist in David's time, but the ark did and it was kept on
Mt. Zion, the high ground.
Thus, making when David died that he wanted to be burnied under that Temple location, which is Zion's, and the location of his fathers was the high
Then, making this a highly significant observation:
Let us now look at an important observation made by Benjamin of Tudela when he got to Jerusalem. He reports an event that occurred 15 years before he
visited the city during which some workers on the southwestern hill called by Christians "Mound Zion" (while working on rebuilding a wall of a
Christian church) accidentally came upon a cavern which was filled with tombs and other finery that was interpreted by a Jewish resident of Jerusalem
as being the tombs of David, Solomon and the other Kings of Judah. The Jewish person who made the interpretation was named Abraham al-Constantini. So,
this means (if the story is factual – and later Jews took it to be) that this Abraham al-Constantini must have been in Jerusalem in the year 1054
C.E. (some 15 years before Benjamin of Tudela talked with him about the discovery of the so-called tombs of David, Solomon and the Kings of Judah when
he visited the city). Before that period of Abraham al-Constantini (and for a period of at least 52 years) there had not been a single Jew who could
enter into Jerusalem. The city had been empty of Jews for over five decades. Indeed, in 1129 C.E., the Spanish Rabbi Abraham Hiyya said: "Not even one
Jew is to be found in Jerusalem in our own days" (see Prawer, ibid., p.48).
So, this is palusible and would be the sort of discovery the Knights Templars would value, as well as the Essene, and make keeping the real site for
the King's Tombs in these Mt Zion caves and chambers, the best understanding from these times, secret to keep them from being plundered until times
were good for folks to discover them.
This story parallels, to some extent, the story for Rennes Le Chateau in Southern France where the Tomb of Jesus is seen to be similarly hidden and
the key there is finding things like the treasure of Solomon. One idea unlocks the other because of similarity.
Jesus, being an Eseene and associated with Guardians for the Tomb of David, would be doing similar styled tomb thinking in association with the
Templars and Southern France big secrets. The Templars may have even moved Jesus boned back to Jerusalem, long after death to have him with his
family at the Lost Tomb of Jesus.
It is this type knowledge that the Templars likely dug up in digging for the secrets and finding out where the Tombs of the Kings was located, and
good amount of the treasures. This knowledge would certainly upset the powers of the time that the real special location was not the Solomon's
temple, and that the Essenes were right, but not telling the whole story of the underground crypts. Knowledge in common between Jesus, the Essene,
and the Templars was the location for the real treasures of the King's.
Such were the secrets that put the Essene and the Templar on the map of real biblical secrets.

alive and dead.
