DESCRIPTIONWhy are there scores of confusing, mysterious, and even seemingly contradictory scriptures in the Bible? Why does Jesus appear so differently in each of the four Gospels? Why does he continually insist that our focus should be on God, not on him? Why do Mark and John gloss over the Nativity, the world-altering event that justifies all that comes afterward? Why does Paul make no mention of the empty tomb, the very cornerstone of the mainstream Christian Faith? Why does Jesus never use the word “atonement”? Why is he said to have been born in a town called the “House of Bread,” and why is he shown growing up in Nazareth, a city that did not exist in the 1st Century A.D.? What do the mystical Essenes and Gnostics have to do with the original Christian Church, and why were their names purposefully left out of the Bible? If there is only one Christ why did Paul say “Christ is in all,” and if there is only one God why did Jesus say “we are all gods”?Why did Paul say that he preached “the hidden wisdom of God in a mystery”? Why did Jesus acknowledge that he taught “the mysteries of the Kingdom of God” openly to an inner secret circle of initiates, but parabolically to the general public? Why did the Master Carpenter teach that the Kingdom of God is “within” us and that John the Baptist was Elijah? Why did the Church Fathers insist that Christianity has always existed, and that it was practiced by Pagans long before the birth of Jesus? What do the Cana Wedding, the Eucharist, the Logos, the Tree of Life, the Serpent, the Virgin Birth, the Resurrection, the Holy Trinity, the Exodus, original sin, Golgotha, the Devil, Noah’s ark, Melchizedek, the Son of Man, and the Upper Room, all have in common? Why are such Bible stories and elements as the Fall of Man, the Great Flood, the Virgin-Mother, the Three Wise Men, changing water into wine, raising of the dead, the 12 Apostles, the heraldic star, the Massacre of the Innocents, the Flight into Egypt, walking on water, and the crucifixion and resurrection of the Son of God found in countless pre-Christian religions and myths all around the world?You are not likely to get the answers to these questions from any mainstream Church, but you will find them in Seabrook’s Bible Dictionary of Traditional and Mystical Christian Doctrines, by Bible authority, spiritual educator, and award-winning historian Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook. This one-of-a-kind, easy to use, 300,000 word reference provides a detailed yet clear examination of the Bible as seen through the eyes of Christian mysticism. By comparing both the outer (exoteric) meanings and the inner (esoteric) meanings of the many sometimes strange and bewildering figures, stories, themes, symbols, words, and allegories in the Good Book, the author provides the missing key to understanding its most cryptic teachings.This illustrated introductory work, steeped in intriguing historical references, seldom-discussed scriptures, and forgotten arcane doctrines, will appeal to anyone - Christian or non-Christian, believer or non-believer - with an open inquiring mind and a desire to gain a deeper more complete understanding of the Bible; one that goes far beyond what is typically taught by the mainline established Church. The result of decades of study and research, and with nearly 5,000 endnotes and a 1,200 book bibliography, Seabrook’s Bible Dictionary is sure to enlighten, educate, and fascinate. Whether you are a Liberal Christian or a Conservative Christian, this landmark volume is a must-have for both serious Bible students and casual readers, as well as for preachers, theologians, scholars, and the clergy. Available in paperback and hardcover. “An uplifting and highly informative celebration of all that it means to be Christian, based on the long suppressed mystical teachings of Jesus and his first followers.” - The Publisher.Click on “Reviews 2” to see what people are saying about this book (coming soon).
