Esoteric Online

Esoteric Christianity is an ensemble of spiritual currents which regard Christianity as a mystery religion,[1][2] and profess the existence and possession of certain esoteric doctrines or practices,[3][4] of which the public is unaware (or even to which they may be denied access) but which are understood by "enlightened", "initiated" or highly educated people.[5][6]
 
These spiritual currents share some common denominators, such as:


 heterodox or heretical Christian theology;
 the four canonical gospels, various apocalyptic literature, and some New Testament apocrypha as sacred texts; and
 disciplina arcani, a supposed oral tradition from the Twelve Apostles containing esoteric teachings of Jesus the Christ.[7][8]

                    I agree, anything to do with Christianity is esoteric!...From the Genesis to revelations, Gospels or the story of Jesus Christ himself whose name was changed from Jesus of Nazarene like the many other things which is changed in time being a mystery therefore esoteric.

                 

               His life begins with astrology and he disappears for 18 years.  Then he becomes superior to all the high priests from Aaron's lineage & and all the prophets as he has the power to forgive sins while the rest had to use sacrificial rites. As he conquered death he removed the fear of the devil. 

                     

            Many things in the bible including the letters of his apostle's cannot be understood unless people have done their homework, educated or enlightened as you say!  And the Bible itself has many versions usually the King James version is best used for the Old Testament and the New International Version for the New.

     

                    But at the same time many educated beings complicate the bible within its codes and have misunderstood and segregated the Church while his message being only Love.

Thankyou many Blessings!!!

 I really like the fact that you state that his life started with astrology as the Magi, who were basically astrologist who's sect may go back to Zoroastrianism, were looking for what was prophesied in the scriptures(Old Testament). The English word magic is derived  from Magi.

     I will disagree with text versions as the King James was derived from the largest collection of manuscripts and transcripts of the time , even with the great undertaking is one of the worse translations by interpretation ever. The New International Version is another where the interpretation is being modified to make sense to logic like were they changed the singular eye into eyes in these verses.

            This is the first text to do so!

New International Version
"The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light.

New Living Translation
"Your eye is a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is good, your whole body is filled with light.

“The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light,

"The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light.

"The eye is the lamp of the body. So if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light.

"The eye is the lamp of the body. If then your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light.

New International Version
Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are healthy, your whole body also is full of light. But when they are unhealthy, your body also is full of darkness.

New Living Translation
"Your eye is a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is good, your whole body is filled with light. But when it is bad, your body is filled with darkness.

English Standard Version

New American Standard Bible

King James Bible
The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body alsois full of darkness.

Holman Christian Standard Bible
Your eye is the lamp of the body. When your eye is good, your whole body is also full of light. But when it is bad, your body is also full of darkness. 

 

   We want to look at things like this with our eye(spiritual,androgynous mind, ect.) not with our eyes or rational only.

I also agree with these matters. I've experienced it first hand. I'm currently working on cracking the multitude of astrological and Biological codes set forth in the Original traditional texts and scriptures of all Religious texts world wide. The process of Alchemy is encoded into the stories using extra filler details to conceal the hidden truths within them All. Egypt and Atlantis are the best two civilizations to start with when decoding these matters for their truths have been carried through time into the many religious works. Understanding the numerical significance is one half of the process. It takes one who's pure of Heart to be initiated into these inner hidden truths for only the Great Spirit conscience can guide one through the Gateway of illumination. The deep inner spiritual connection to the Entirety of the creation is a must.

Let your perception be complete/whole and you will be enlightened.

When we see things as they really are..........

When the perceptual filters are removed.........

When the perceptual reducing valve is opened wide...........

When the blinders are taken off..........

When we see completely, that which we normally see only dimly............

When we see the big picture, rather than merely a piece...........

When we see the unity, the underlying harmony, rather than the duality or the chaos.........

That is when our perception is complete.............made whole (single).

 

Then we have a light which reveals the path and we will know which way to go...we will see the pitfalls before they become a problem.

 

 

Quote:

Matthew 6 King James Bible

 

22 The light (1) of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light(2). 23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light(3) that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

The word evil in Greek is "poneros" which means "hurtful" and is derived from the word "ponos" which means "anguish or pain or toil" which has its roots in the word "penes" / "peno" (to toil for daily subsistence)....starving/needful/poor/distressed.

 

The word darkness in Greek is "skotos" which means obscurity/shadiness, and it is derived from the word "skia" which means shade or shadow (ie: the darkness of error).

 

The word light is actually 3 different greek words:

1) "photeinos" = lustrous / transparent / well illuminated

2) "luchnos"- a portable lamp/illuminator (like a candle)

This comes from the root word "leukos" = light or white

3) "phos" = to shine or make manifest, espec. by rays (luminousness)

fire / light

This word comes from the root "phemi" = "to show or make known one's thoughts (speak, say).

 

So building upon this: the luster of the self is in your perception. When your perception is complete you will be an illuminator.

If you are deprived/starved of perception you will be trapped in error/shadow.

If your thoughts based on your perceptions are in obscurity, then how great is the degree of that obscurity?

 

 

Isn't English wonderful?

It reduces meaning and obscures the path and fosters misinterpretation.

So to really comprehend the bible one must read the language the text was written in and do extensive word studies.

There is no other easier way that leads to understanding,

But take the broad and easy path if you must.

Millions of lemmings can't be wrong................can they????

Very true. Your wisdom is far reaching and with great depth. I am humbled to hear your words of truth. We must look to the origens to see the distorted ripples of systematic evolution playing out through time as is also the form of the creation. We must look to the creator to have understanding of its creation. He who hath an ear let him hear what the Great Spirit says unto the congregations.
