Dear Rab, I am a Mexico City student of Kabbalah, I met you in Guadalajara last year, and I have the next set of questions for you related to Yeshua as a Kabbalist.
In the preface of the Zohar by Nuro de Manhar it says the next about the Kabbalists system as a secret society:
These occult societies were generally distinguished by the wearing of some special badge or emblem indicative of the peculiar occultism of which they were the professed followers and adherents, such as a raven or hawk, eagle or dove, a lion, a wolf, an ox or a Iamb. Their members, whenever sent out on any benevolent expedition or political mission, always went in couples.
You said in a YouTube question about the 72 Shemhamphorasch names of the creator, that this is an spiritual attainment that is very special and few Kabbalist had it. It is said that when Moses received Kabbalah on Mount Sinai, he also received the spiritual attainment of the 72 names of the Creator, so when he lifted up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and swore by Him that liveth for ever, it was him who opened the sea.
Then regarding to this subject, I found this on the New Testament on Lucas 10:
10 After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go. 2 He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.3 Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. 4 Do not take a purse or bag or sandals; and do not greet anyone on the road.
5 “When you enter a house, first say, ‘Peace to this house.’ 6 If someone who promotes peace is there, your peace will rest on them; if not, it will return to you. 7 Stay there, eating and drinking whatever they give you, for the worker deserves his wages. Do not move around from house to house.
8 “When you enter a town and are welcomed, eat what is offered to you. 9 Heal the sick who are there and tell them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’ 10 But when you enter a town and are not welcomed, go into its streets and say, 11 ‘Even the dust of your town we wipe from our feet as a warning to you. Yet be sure of this: The kingdom of God has come near.’ 12 I tell you, it will be more bearable on that day for Sodom than for that town.
13 “Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackclothand ashes. 14 But it will be more bearable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment than for you. 15 And you, Capernaum, will you be lifted to the heavens? No, you will go down to Hades.
16 “Whoever listens to you listens to me; whoever rejects you rejects me; but whoever rejects me rejects him who sent me.”
17 The seventy-two returned with joy and said, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name.”
18 He replied, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. 19 I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.20 However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”
21 At that time Jesus, full of joy through the Holy Spirit, said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do.
22 “All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows who the Son is except the Father, and no one knows who the Father is except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.”
23 Then he turned to his disciples and said privately, “Blessed are the eyes that see what you see.24 For I tell you that many prophets and kings wanted to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it.”
This seems to me a very clear depiction of the spiritual attainment of the 72 Shemhamphorasch names of the Creator given to Yeshua just as it was given to Moses. But then people will ask, the New Testament was written in Greek, so it cannot be a factual Kabbalist document. Nuro de Manhar states in the preface of the Zohar that the tools of the Kabbalist texts are:
Which are mostly related to the particularities of the Hebrew language, but then how come the Zohar is the seminal book of Kabbalah when it was written in Aramaic? That means that other Kabbalist texts that where written in other languages can be considered Kabbalistic books. Which to me prompts the question of, why no Kabbalist has taking the time to review the New Testament and make a commentary on Yeshua as a Kabbalist when there are such clear hints just like in Lucas 10?
I also beg you to clarify in the emotional context of the Misterious Stranger in the Zohar how come a passage that states the next, could not be an extremely clear depiction of Yeshua as a sage and Kabbalist:
After hearing these words from the unknown stranger, they embraced him, and said:
Possessed of such knowledge of the secret doctrine, you must not follow behind, but go before us. What is thy name?
Ask me not, he replied. But let us go forward discoursing on occult mysteries, each of us giving utterance to words of hidden wisdom which shall lighten the way.
Said they: How came you to follow us ?
Yod, he replied, made war against two other letters, Caph and Samech (ch and S), in order that they might become attached to me. Koph was unwilling to be joined to one without whose help it could not subsist a single moment, and Samech was equally unwilling to become bound to Koph, and thus he unable to help those who stumble and fall.
Then Yod, coming to me, embraced me, caressed me, wept with me, and said: My child, what can I do for you? I aim about to ascend on high, and shall acquire amongst many good things secret letters. all capitals, and valuable. I will then come back to thee and help thee and give thee other letters, better and stronger than those who have forsaken and left thee, even Ysh (blessing), who will he to thee treasures filled with good things. Go, therefore, my child, and mount thy ass. And this is why I am here.
Rabbi Eleazar and Rabbi Abba were greatly pleased, and said: Go on before and we will follow after thee.
Replied the stranger: have I not told you it was through the King s orders that I have come hither?
They said: But you have not told us your name. Where de you dwell?
My habitation is a fine and strong one, a high tower, in which the Holy One and myself only reside. Just now I am here riding on my ass.
Then Rabbi Eleazar and Rabbi Abba pondered awhile and meditated on these sayings and the meaning of them, which to them were as honey and manna.
Then said they unto him: Who is thy father? If thou wilt tell us we will make obeisance unto thee.
Wherefore should I? he answered. It is not usual with me to impart occult science to anyone. However, my father lives in the great sea, and was a great fish. He was great and strong and full of years, so that he swallowed up all the other fishes of the sea and then sent them forth living and filled with all the good things of the world. His power is such he can run through the sea in a moment, and he sent me forth as an arrow from the how of a skilled archer and concealed me in the place of which I have spoken; but he himself has returned, and remains hidden in the sea.
Rabbi Eleazar, after reflecting a moment, exclaimed: Thou art the son of the great mystic teacher Rabbi Hammenuna, the Aged, the great initiate in the secret doctrine!
Then they embraced him and went forward, saying: Let it please thee, Oh, master, tell us thy name?
Then, said he, it is written, Benaiah, Son of Jehoida. We have already expounded the signification of these words. It will, however, be profitable to consider the deeply occult meaning of them, which has reference to human life. To continue, Son of a living man ; that is, of the just one the life of the world.
I think this among Daniel 12:7:
7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he lifted up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and swore by Him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and a half; and when they have made an end of breaking in pieces the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.
Are the most clear examples of the authority of Yeshua as Kabbalist but most important as the son of the creator as the Mysterious Stranger beautifully and poetically explains. Dear Rab I look forward for your commentary on this topics. Thanx for your time.
