“Will the REAL Jesus Please Stand Up?”
No historical figure has been more studied, scrutinized and examined as the person known as Jesus the Christ. Yet most of what we have learned has been told strictly through the written works of the Bible. Many Christians today take this book to be the written word of God. However, anyone who has truly studied history and the Bible know that much has been altered and misinterpreted over time through language translations and the intentional “revisions” of church priests, Caesars and councilmen with less than best intentions.
This book about Jesus is an effort to tell the most accurate depiction possible from an eastern mystic point of view. Unfortunately, the Orthodox church has attempted to make sense of and elaborate on metaphysical matters they hardly understood. Some call this occultism, gnosticism or secret esoteric doctrine but the yogis state this is ancient wisdom that has always been available to the sincere Truth Seeker!
This work was written in an honest effort to expound on the mystical interpretation of Jesus’ teachings. To remain as authentic as possible we’ve made an effort to present Jesus in a way that is most likely accurate to the culture and climate of his times. Firstly, we’ve decided to address Jesus by his Aramaic birth name of Yesoshuah in which the more common alternative spelling is Yeshua. Yeshua of course means “God is Salvation.”
Yeshua proclaimed “not to throw pearls before swine” because those that don’t understan and appreciate the True meaning will merely “trample” on the message. He often spoke in parable and this presentation will seek to shine the Light on the Eternal Truth of man’s spiritual Being!
