PHASE TWENTY FOUR
Section I--The First Temptation
ND as he appeared inside the Women's Court, which was also called in the Hebrew-Aramaic: the house of man`ana [which is the house of question and reply], for it was used for public debate; there came to him the ancient chancellors and the official secretaries of the Temple, who had marveled at his words. For they too were men of compassion; and wanted him to expand upon his philosophy.
02 And fearing that he was the true lord of the house, (that is to say, the incarnation of Solomon), and that he might catch them in their replies, the chief priests sent to him instead, some of the Pharisees and the chief Herodians among the Sadducees, as they had done when he was testifying in Galilee. For they are the browbeaters who devour the minds and hearts of men.
03 Who first questioning him, one of the Pharisees, said to him in a most flippant manner: Baal, we too have also heard the news that thou art a true dovemaker, and carest not for the person of any man. For thou regardest not the possessions of men but their dreams, and leadest the way to true happiness in poverty. But tell us: Is it right to give tribute to Caesar? Or shall we not give it?
04 And remembering how they swarmed about him, when they were sent to spy and watch over him, he saith to the lord of the bees: Why tempt you me, by calling me a dreamer? Bring me a Roman coin, that I may see it. And they gave it to him! And turning it over in his hand, he saith to the sons of Raah [sons of vultures]: Whose image and inscription do you see on the face of it?
05 And fearing the stern looks of the chief priests who praised Caesar and supported paying the Roman korbanas, reversing their Galilean position, the worshipers of Ra, answered him, saying: Why Caesar's, of course.
06 And remembering how the pharisees had followed him to the synagogue of Chorazin, and had watched him to see if he would steal the bread of proposition, on account of his disciples who had eaten some grains of wheat; being most masterful, he saith to the swarm of them in his reply: Render to Baal the things that are Elah's; and to Herod, the things that are Caesar's: But not in Bath'u'elah, for Yah is my baal, and the Maown Ba`ali is Beth lehem.[Which is here being interpreted: Render to the Mother those things which belong to the Father. And on the earthly plane, you may give to Herod those things which are Caesar's. But not in the House of God: For Yah is my master, and the Temple of the Lord is the Daughter of Bread].
07 And like flies inhabiting a hornets nest, they were caught by his stunning reply; For they thought inside of themselves, that by calling Naomi a daughter of dread, they like Cephas, might also accuse him of being a son of Asherah; and then tempt him to renounce Caesar's authority, thereby giving the chief priests false cause to arrest him as an infidel and prevent him from teaching inside the Men's Court.
08 But is it not written concerning the house of dread: 'How reverent is his place called Yirah! surely the Lord lives here.* This is both the house of Zebul and the Bath-Sheba';* [which is being interpreted: the house of my habitation and the gate of heaven]. And completing the prophesy of Isaias, he too called the name of this place 'Married Forever', because on this day, the Lord of the house and the daughter of God were remarried here.*
09 For is it not written by the great master dreamer himself: "I am Ba`ali, the Lord of dreams, and before I appeared to you as a Mighty Hand,* I appeared to Abram as a den of habitation between the mountains of Bal and the valley of Ali, [that is to say, between the heart of Sheckem and the valley of dreams); to Isaac as a fountain, and to Jacob as a heavenly gate;"; but by the masculine name of God Almighty, the Lord of Jerusalem was not yet know to them, because the Chaldeans wrote in stone instead of drawing on the strength of burning oak. For I am the Book of Appearances, said the Lord to Moses, when he had seen the power of charcoal in hand. [And that is how Elah-Yad (Mighty-Hand), became the God of Scripture and the curse of Pharaoh].*
Section II--The Second Temptation
10 And in an attempt to uphold the harlotry of Herod the Ahab, and of the unholy father [who is here being identified as Joseph Caiphas]; the chief pharisees, having utter contempt for the son of Adam, questioned his brightness, saying: Booz, is it not shameful for a man to buy his woman? tempting him once more with their Herodian vices.
11 But remembering how the unholy father terrorized his own mother Ruth, by calling her a cursed and bitter woman, agitated by their silly trap, he saith to the true sons of Booz [ sons of disrespect], who were still trying to have him cast out of the Temple on account of the proud widow who refused to relinquish her marriage vows: What does the law command of you?
12 Who answered, but not correctly: Moses permitted us to write a bill of divorce, and to cast her out, the way we would a worn out old rag;* and Hosea said that we should not have mercy on her, and shall count her name as Nothing.*
13 To whom Bozez (David) replied, with a brightly shining heart: Because of your iniquities and the failure of your heart Moses wrote you that precept;* and for your sins of omission your mothers were called Not of the people', and your wives were not counted in the genealogies.*
14 But from the beginning of the Chaldean creation story, the Father-Mother God made them male and female, after the seat of Their own soul, They created them; female and male, bal created them, as if in a dream: equally perfect in every way.
15 But on the great 'day of Havah'; which is the moment of trembling, that is to say, on Mother's Day or the true day of separation (birth): Havah the Self-Existent One formed the first soul-mates from the very heart of Her Shining Presence. And She vitalized them with the bread of life'; and the first androgyny became a living dream. But Bozez the Shining-one did not yet have separate bodies, because they were still living in a dream-state or in a state of heavenly Chavvah [paradise].
16 Then the Father-God queried the Mother-God with his non-existing Spirit and said: It is not good for our soul-mates to have one androgynous form like us for we are the Sole-Mates of the Universe.* Then the Mother-God replied: Out of your Nothingness [Darkness], and out of my Whatness [Whiteness], I will awaken for you another Shining [Dreamer] so that our house of dreams' does not become a place of ruin.*
17 Then Havah, the Self-Existent One, created the first 'man with a womb'; and She called the first 'womb-man' Chavah [Eve] because she was created out of Her own likeness. And when Eve awoke from her dream and when she expelled her first-born 'man of blood', looking up to heaven She said: 'See ye a son!' But Havah, the Eternal-One, replied: Behold, his name is Adam, (and not Reuben) because your soul-mate was built out of the rosiness of My adamah [earth]. And from the strength of your seeing cometh the 'sons of Friendship'.
18 For Her cause Adam was cast out of the Bath Eden [Daughter's Womb]; and the son shall cleave to his wife; and they two shall become one flesh. In addition, did not Adam say to Yehavah, the God of Existence: I am chay of Chavvah; and ben of Lebenah;* [which is here being interpreted to mean: I am Yesaf, the additional life of thy womb plus the son of thy dove]. Therefore now, they are not differing spirits, but one; for She is Rachel! the matrix of us all. And from Her brightness cometh the 'sons of Compassion'.
19 And having explained the origins of the name Boaz (Bozez) to the sons of Booz (sons of disrespect), the sons of compassion replied: 'May the Lord make the dove who is coming into your house, like Rachel and Leah, who together built up the house of Israel'.* For is it not written in the book of Friendship: 'The day you redeem Naomi the mistress of the house, you will also redeem Reuth [Ruth]'.*
20 'And confirming his words of adoration, seven women took hold of him as they placed a garland of fresh roses upon his head, singing: From this day forward, we will eat your bread, and wear your apparel, for only Boaz the redeemer hast called us by thy right name, and hath taken away our reproach'.* And with one accord, all of the women in the house replied and said: Amen! For is it not written in Solomon's book of Proverbs: 'Wisdom has set up Her house, She has set up Her seven pillars;* and happy is the son of Ruth who has listened to Her'.*
21 And upholding John's condemnation of Herod, replying, he saith to the chief pharisees: Whosoever shall put away his lawful wife and take another, committeth adultery against the Mother of all. What therefore God hath joined together, let no man brush aside, not even a king. For Havah is the 'Mistress of the House', and Yah is Her husband.
22 And knowing full well that they had renounced John the Beloved as the rightful king' for the sake of Herodias, the Jezebel who deprived Naboath out of his rightful inheritance,* he saith to them in the reverse: And if the wife shall put away her lawful husband and be married to another, she also committeth adultery against God. For Elah is the 'Master of the House', and BAL is His wife.
23 And their babbling was brought to naught; and their attempt to call him Baalam, a false dreamer, is without profit.* For he not only unveiled the original name for the Lord at the oak of Morah, and all that belongs to the 'Daughter of God';* but the name for the Dreamer as well. For behold, it was this Mary [widow Naomi] who came from Beth`lehem.* And it was the brightness of Bozez who redeemed it.*
Section III--The Third Temptation
24 And having conspired with queen Herodias to have John killed, there came to him some of the Herodians among the Sadducees, who, having no conscience at all, do not believe in the transmigration of the soul, [that is to say, they do not believe in the doctrine of rebirth]; for they were unwise men of little faith,* who sought to do violence by oppressing both the poor and the dovemakers.*
25 And comparing him to a married man, 'so that the blessed widow with her newly begotten son, might be their prey',* causing yet another controversy, they questioned him, saying: Husband, baal, Moses wrote unto us, that if any man's brother die, and leave his wife behind him, and leave no children, his surviving brother should take his wife, and rise up seed in his brother's name.*
26 And having blotted out John's name from the Book of Remembrance, by reversing the story of the seven women who shall confirm one man in the 'day of visitation'* they said to him in their perverse postulate:
27 Now there were seven brothers. And the eldest brother took her to wife, and died leaving no offspring. And the second took her to wife, and died: and neither did he produce any offspring. And the third in like manner. And the seven masters all took her in like manner; and did not produce any offspring. Last of all the mistress died.
28 And having no respect for the Mother of us all, as symbolized by the name of Bilhah,* they said to him in their upside down philosophy:* Now in the resurrection therefore, when they shall all rise again, whose wife shall she be to them? for the seven owners had her to wife?
29 And answering, he saith to them in his reply: 'You do err, because this thought of yours is perverse, as if the man of white clay should think himself against his Creatress'.* Nor do you understand about the transmigration of the Holy Spirit.* For when they shall all rise again from the dead, in the 'final resurrection'; they shall neither be born anew, nor be married, but are as the angels who art in heaven, spirits of white light without a body: For is it not written in the book of Psalms: 'Blessed is the Lord, O my Soul;* who maketh thy angels into thy Holy Spirit'.* But you would rather believe that God would breathe life into dead men's bones.*
30 And as concerning the dead; that they are born anew, have you not read in the book of Exodus, how in Mount Horeb, the Holy Tetragrammaton spoke to Moses, saying: 'I am the great em [Mother] and 'She Who Is', has sent me to you'.* And furthermore, did not God also say unto Moses: 'Say ye to My children Israel: I am the wife of your father Adam, the Lord of Abraham, the Lord of Isaac, and the Lord of Jacob'.* Therefore said God to Moses: 'I am the Mother-God who gives life to all, for Behold: I exist! and Ye Ha-vah-hay [Y-HVH] is My name'.
31 And putting an end to this ridiculous spelling B, he saith to them in truth: In the Hebrew, Yehovah is not the god of ruin; but the 'God of the living'.* Therefore by rejecting the transmigration of the Holy Spirit and the Chaldean name Yehavah, you do greatly err: 'For none of the kings had any other beginning of birth. For all reincarnating spirits have but one entrance into life and the like going out'.*
32 And resurrecting John from the dead, he saith to those among the Herodians who do not believe in the rebirth of the soul: Tell me, why then did the priests say, teaching in the Temple, that the Baptist is the Lamb of God. For David himself saith by the Holy Spirit in truth, that he would restore the Lamb of God fourfold.* Because scripture says: it was a daughter to him.* If David himself hath called him Rachel, whence then is she his son?
33 And because they had no pity and did not repent for their sins, Solomon was made a King forever, for is it not written in the book of Hosea: 'The children of Israel shall return in another incarnation and seek El'melech the Lord their God, and David their king'.*
Section IV--The Contender
34 And hearing him struggle to gain entrance into the Men's Court, and seeing that he had answered the Pharisees and the Sadducees among the Herodians well, coming near to him, I asked him the very same type of question he asked of me when I first met him beyond the meeting of two ways, saying: Which is the first commandment of all? For I knew that no Israelite, whosoever he should be could be denied his right to teach inside the men's section of the Temple, if he believeth in One God.
35 And answering in the traditional Hebrew he saith aloud: The first commandment of all is: 'Hear, O Israel, the lord, our God Yahweh, is One God.* And thou shalt love thy lord thy God, with they whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with thy whole strength'.*
36 And being most apologetic to me,* he saith to me in his doctrine, (which is also the same as John's doctrine, or the Doctrine of the Dove): And the second most important is like to it: 'Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thy Self, and thou shalt not be jealous of his possessions'.* There is no other commandment greater than these two which ought to be first.
37 And knowing that I was a friend of God, with a beam of light in his eye he added telepathically: That a compassionate man set aside his life for a friend. For he knew that I had come near to him in order to vindicate him.
38 And in a day most acceptable to the Lord,* contending together with him,* I said to him in a friendly tone: Perfectly taught, Good Master, thou hast said in truth, that there is but One God, and there is no other besides Yah ha-vah-hay (God-of-Life). And that Yahwey (YHVH) should be loved with the whole heart, and with the whole soul, and with the whole strength; and with thy whole understanding to love one's mother as thy Self, is a greater treasure than all commandments. [For Jehovah is the 'God of all life', and Her Grecian name is EVE].
Section V--The Exchange
39 And knowing that I had taken him into my heart, answering he saith to me: Thou art indeed not far from the Kingdom of God. And in order to fulfill his dream, after unloosening them, he took off his sandals, for this was holy ground,* and rising them far above his head, he saith to the people in his exchange:
40 'You are my witnesses on this day of confirmation, that I have redeemed the name of Ruth, and all that belongs to the children of Israel and to Rachel, and all that belongs to Leah. Also, Naomi the widow I have redeemed to be my mother to perpetuate the remembrance of the name of John from the dead in his inheritance; that the mighty name of John may not be cut off from his brethren and from Babah, the heavenly gate of his nativity: You are my witnesses this day'.*
41 'And all the peacemakers, both men and women alike, who were in the house of Ana' [house of Doves], replied: We are your witnesses!'*
42 And having stilled the minds and hearts of men, without a tumult, no man after that doth question his remembrance anymore.* For this was his last temptation; which really centered around Anna, the apple of his eye and the gate of John's nativity. And leaving the sons of "man," [which is here, and only here being interpreted to mean: the sons "in" question], he ascended the Nicanor Gate and was granted his right to teach inside the men's house of prayer.
