THE PRE-CHRISTIAN JESUS
THE INTUITIVE RECOVERY OF HIS EARLY LIFE AND ORIGINAL TEACHINGS
Contrary to common expectation, the hundreds of books published, and the many preachings about the man Jesus offered from countless pulpits around the world, are not based upon sound historical fact. They were prepared by those who evangelised and wrote about him two or more generations after he died. The original documents, almost totally lost or destroyed, were replaced by a heavily biased accumulation of legends, myths, even fantasy and exaggerated historical accounts. The earliest Christian church fabricated them largely from religious hearsay and political motivations, not from actual history, in support of its political agenda of evangelism, expansion and power.
What we know today as the Christian religion has been a powerful transformer of Western civilization for nearly two millennia, for which we may all be grateful. However, its accomplishments have come at the cost of excluding the deeper spiritual message Jesus had been espousing during his life, and even most of the factual events of his youth, education and upbringing. We are left now with only a few valid crumbs, hidden within secular history, the Christian Bible, a few recovered “Gospels” and mystical writings from later centuries. These y preserve only a little of Jesus’ original, profound teachings. Even a cursory examination of these fragments reveals the seriousness of this loss, for they paint a much more credible and acceptable philosophy than the Christian theological tradition has maintained for nearly two thousand years. We will do well to explore these deeper teachings more closely and try to learn what they have for mankind today.
If we are to understand what has been lost about this exceptional human being we must seek “another means of knowing” besides the traditional historical one. This means lies in the human capacity of direct knowing or innate knowing, also called intuition. This is the natural human faculty that allows access to deeper realms of knowledge beyond those obtained by reasoning and sense perception alone. This relatively unused capability of the mind can be readily activated to acquire information in almost every area of human activity which relies on new knowledge for its activities and advances. Once developed, intuition is a powerful tool for providing lost or otherwise inaccessible information, not only in science but in the humanities, liberal arts, commercial activities and even for deep personal knowing. It is now being explored to recover various bodies of important knowledge that have fallen from contemporary awareness. In particular, it may be used to regenerate the missing biography and teachings of Jesus.
Over the last century much biographical information about Jesus and details of his original teachings have been recovered by highly skilled or “expert” intuitives. In these pages we examine this material, and add more of our own, for whatever it can contribute to a reconstruction of the pre-Christian Jesus and his message for Christians and others today. This includes especially portions which he offered only verbally to his disciples, for these were not preserved for posterity in documents or commentaries.
This recovered knowledge can serve both Christian and non-Christian readers. Their reconstruction of Jesus’ life is quite different from the message being presented in pulpits, seminaries and dozens of new books about him published every year. It is a fresh and inspiring body of fresh knowledge that can be directly applied in each reader’s daily life as a personal upgrade of his present beliefs about Jesus and what he espoused. It provides a more positive and much expanded view of human life itself, beyond its familiar limitations, struggles, sacrifices and suffering so prevalent in the Christian tradition. These teaching imply a new wave of awareness, individually enabled, from which each human may understand his or her place on earth, his reason and purpose for living, where he is headed in his personal evolution and his main opportunities for a healthy, creative, helpful and joyous life and future.
