Jonah’s Tomb of Templar Treasure

jonah2 jonah3 jonah4

On July 21st. I wrote the following poem bidding Knights to come to Rose Mountain. I speak of ISIS defacing Jonah’s tomb. A few days later, they blew it up – destroyed this famous symbol of Christianity in Iraq. This act is the call for another Crusade. Our President is putting together a internation force. Then, ISIS found gold statues and other treasure in the rubble. I believe this is a treasure the Knights Templar hid. I believe I know who hid this treasure. It is time to write my book.

Islamic State (IS) militants have found golden statues under the tomb of the prophet Jonah known as ’Nabi Yunus’ in Mosul. There are claims that the statues could be worth as much as $1 million.

Our Lord Jesus Christ: “An evil and adulterous generation seeketh a sign: and a sign shall not be given it, but the sign of Jonah the prophet.” St. Matthew 12:39

After the destruction of Jonah’s tomb by IS, some archaeologists have spoken about the possibility of there being pieces of jewelry under the tomb. Investigations are starting as there are concerns that any treasure may become a further source of income for the insurgent group.

Capturing Similde

Who dare climb
humanities loftiest peak
to capture beauty
adorned in universal peace
Who will take the risk
to own a spiritual transcendence?

Why has no poet or artist gone
to see the treacherous rocks
where from the Rose of the World
was washed away
And with serene brow
and a love for the truth
rendered a work of art
a forgiving sonnet?

Theodoric accepts the challenge
and comes to the Rose Garden
to rescue the beautiful Similde
captured by a dwarf
with an invisible cloak
Brave knights follow
the clue of the crushed roses
and render their foe
visible.

What is there to see
when we chose to rise
above it all
all that is base
lacking grace
and civility?
Youth challenges youth
while wisdom old in years
authors chivalrous poetry
for grandsons un-born

There must be a mystery
and a clue
a broken thread
that marks the point
of no return.
For our destiny awaits
where we dare not go
and we go
to see
if we are truly alive
and are not a mirage
and life a cruel fantasy

According eyewitnesses in Mosul, IS extremists have paraded three golden statues as well as pieces of gold and silver jewelry which they discovered under the tomb.

Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) spokesman in Mosul, Saed Mamuzini, told BasNews, “It is true that a large amount of gold and jewelry has been found including golden statues. According to our information, IS insurgents have transported the finds to Raqqa, Syria.”

“According to archeologists, the statues come from a time before and after the birth of Jesus. There are many Christian archaeological sites in Mosul,” said Mamuzini.

Archeologist Ali Bani Shari told BasNews that the Kurdistan Region and wider Iraq have many archaeological sites of interest although finding gold and jewelry in the sites is unusual. There have, however, been similar finds in the Kurdistan Region which are kept in Kurdish Museums because of their value, said Shari.

He said that although the statues are worth around $1 million, they have no value on the legitimate international market as they should be returned to their original site by law.

“If these statues are sent to any country of the world and then seen, they have to be returned back to Mosul, Iraq,” said Shari.

“From 1991 onwards, no investigations or explorations have been conducted which has resulted in a limited understanding of the history of these artifacts,” added Shari.

 

Jonah is also mentioned in a few incidents during the lifetime of Muhammad. In some instances, Jonah’s name is spoken of with praise and reverence by Muhammad. According to historical narrations about Muhammad’s life, after ten years of receiving revelations, Muhammad went to the city of Ta’if to see if its leaders would allow him to preach his message from there rather than Mecca, but he was cast from the city by the people. He took shelter in the garden of Utbah and Shaybah, two members of the Quraysh tribe. They sent their servant, Addas, to serve him grapes for sustenance. Muhammad asked Addas where he was from and the servant replied Nineveh. “The town of Jonah the just, son of Amittai!” Muhammad exclaimed. Addas was shocked because he knew that the pagan Arabs had no knowledge of the prophet Jonah. He then asked how Muhammad knew of this man. “We are brothers” Muhammad replied. “Jonah was a Prophet of God and I, too, am a Prophet of God.” Addas immediately accepted Islam and kissed the hands and feet of Muhammad.[12]

One of the sayings of Muhammad, in the collection of Imam Bukhari, says that Muhammad said “One should not say that I am better than Jonah”.[13] This is understood by both mainstream Muslims and historians to have been stated by Muhammad to emphasize the notion of equality between all the prophets and the law of making no distinction between any of the messengers. The Arab tribes of the time may have begun to exalt Muhammad above Jonah because of the recent revelation Muhammad received, which recounted the story of Jonah’s fleeing from his mission. Muhammad, by saying this, clearly made it a point to the Arabs to not make any distinction between the great apostles of God.

Tomb at Nineveh[edit]

At the present time, Nineveh‘s location is marked by excavations of five gates, parts of walls on four sides, and two large mounds: the hill of Kuyunjik and hill of Nabi Yunus (see map link in footnote).[14] On Nabi Yunus there was a shrine dedicated to the prophet Jonah,[15] which was revered by both Muslims and Christians, as it was believed to hold Jonah’s tomb.[16] The Tomb of Jonah was a “popular place of pilgrimage for people who would come from around the world to see it, before the arrival of ISIS in Mosul”.[17] On July 24, 2014, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant destroyed the masjid containing the tomb as part of a campaign to destroy religious sanctuaries it deemed to be idolatrous.[18]

The First Preceptor of La Fontenotte

The fifth son of Guy II of Til Chatel and Guillemette de Coublant,
Etienne de Til-Chatel was lord of Pichanges. In December 1265, having
recalled the donations made to the temple by Aimon IV and Guy II, he
gave to the Templars, with the agreement of his elder brother, Jean,
Lord of Til Chatel, the right of pasturage on his lands of Pichanges
and Spoy. He died in 1271 and was buried before the altar in the
chapel of Fontenotte and conferring his Templar rank of Preceptor
(priest-templar).

After the death of Etienne, Jean de Til-Chatel had to confirm in 1274
the rights of the Templars over Fontenotte. In 1278 his younger
brother, Guy, who had been curate of Til-Chatel in 1242 then
archdeacon of Le Tonnerois in the church of Langres, succeeded him at
the head of the lordship of Pichanges.

In May, 1274, Jean de Til-Chatel, Marshal of Burgundy legally
recorded “for the repose of his soul and that of his elder brother,
Etienne de Til-Chatel, who lies in the cemetery of the said Temple,
and of the souls of his forebears”, granted to Henri de Dole,
Commander of the House of Fontenotte:

The Magistral Grand Priory of The Holy Lands
(Notre Dame, Saint Mary of Magdalene)
Ancient Templar Treasures of the Magistral Grand Priory
The Magistral Grand Prior and Officers of our Magistral Grand Priory
are pleased to announce that after lengthy negotiations, we have
acquired and brought back to their original Order, the museum
artefacts comprising of the Seal of Etienne de Til-Chatel lord of
Pichanges, Preceptor of La Fontenotte ( see Etienne’s reference
page ) and also the early Grand Seal of the Order as used by Hugue de
Payne and the Duke of Champagne.
