Rex Deus Theory

Marilyn Hopkins, Graham Simmons, and Tim Wallace-Murphy in their 2000 book, Rex Deus have the following theory:
The Rex Deus sagas recount how the children of Jesus were parted in an attempt to ensure their security and the continuation of his bloodline. James, his two-and-a-half-year-old son, was entrusted to the care of Judas Thomas Didymus, Jesus' twin brother. They sought immediate sanctuary with King Abgar of Edessa, who was a supporter of Jesus. Mary Magdalene, who was pregnant at the time, fled in the opposite direction, to a refuge of comparative safety among a community whose silence and protection could be relied upon, the Therapeutae in Egypt.
