By Larry Fyffe
So-called ‘Dylanologists’ have yet to realize that many of the songs written and sung by Bob Dylan contain hidden clues to the “Dylavinci Code”, a code that reveals that the American born singer/songwriter/musician has been searching quite some time now for the burial site of Mary Magdalene, and her child by Jesus Christ.
That search is a dangerous undertaking because authorities of the established canon of the Holy Bible want no biological link made that leads back to the Saviour; their positions on the interpretation of the Scriptures would be completely undermined.
Dylavinci clues abound in many lyrics, obviously written by Dylan in a transfigured, time-travelling state of mind.
Below, he’s Jesus speaking, revealing that Mary Magdalene goes off to France after the couple were tracked down in Durango, Mexico:
Shakespeare, he's in the alley With his pointed shoes, and his bells Talking to some French girl Who says she knows me well (Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again)
Clear it be that Ruth, a guardian of the ‘lagoon’ of biblical lineage, attempts to divert Dylan-as-Jesus (“discovered beneath the church”) from joining Mary in France, the ‘land of oaks’, encoded, as noted, in another song “Duquesne Whistle’:
When Ruthie says come see'er In her honky-tonk lagoon Where I could watch her waltz for free 'Neath the Panamian moon (Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again)
Ruthie marries wealthy Judge Boaz, and their offspring uphold the Jewish Davidian line.
Something fishy is going on.
The Dylavinci Code unfolds.
Roman emperor Nero plays a fiddle as Rome burns, and sets scapegoat Christians on fire (they identified by the symbol of a fish):
Praise be to Nero's Neptune The Titanic sails at dawn And everybody's shouting "Which side are you on?" (Desolation Row)
Fiery Nero tips off Robert Zimmerman that girlfriend Joan Baez, a descendant of Judge Boaz, is not on his side:
The fiddler, he now steps to the road He writes everything's been returned that was owed On the back of the fish truck that loads While my conscience explodes (Visions of Johanna)
Things start getting interesting right about now – it’s Memphis in Egypt, near the Great Sphinx, not the city in Tennessee, that’s referred to in the lines below:
Oh mama, can this really be the end To be stuck inside of Mobile With The Memphis blues again
Apparently, the Sphinx on the Giza Plateau in Egypt holds the secret to the location of Mary Magdalene’s tomb.
This could really be the end to the search!
