What You Don't Know About The Hebrew Scriptures

Reader comment on item: Britain's Encounter with Islamic Law
in response to reader comment: Ianus and our way of life

There are seventy two levels of meaning in the scripture as it is written in the Hebrew tongue. No translation has ever penetrated more than two levels at the most. The greatest of Talmudic scholars has never penetrated more than sixty at best and yet there are a lot of wannabes in our world who think themselves knowledgable in the Holy Writ. "AMAZING!"

To wit: At one level the story of the exodus from Egypt is an epic journey of a people out from slavery. On a deeper level it is an account of the souls journey to ultimate realization in the beingness of G-D. In many ways it is like the Buddhas ascention into Nirvana. It is a detailed account of the "process" of enlightenment. In any event, it's objective goal is a final synthesis and the realization of the G-D Being that exists as a potential within each of us. Rabbi Yeshua knew this. Why do his followers not know it.

The true path is not an 'ISM' or an 'ITY'. It is not a philosophy to be debated in the market place. It is a discipline of the mind to achieve clarity of perception. Only then can wisdom be gained.
