Re: Revisiting Philo's Therapeutae ...

rgprice- I'm working on it - and I have my work cut out for me. The gist of it is: Philo's exegetical sermons are not random; rather he is addressing groups of Jews and non-Jews - persuasion along certain lines. So when he talks about the Logos and other topics related to Melchizedek, he's actually ...

Re: Sleeper awake! (Gnostic/Hermetic)

An interesting passage in Ephesians: Ephesians 5: 12 “Sleeper, awake! Rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” This doesn't come from the Jewish scriptures. Any ideas? Looks like kabbalic necromancy. ... The jewish groups that didn't see Jesus and Christ joined into Jesus Christ. Right. A...

Re: Martin Bodinger's “L'énigme de Melkisédeq” 1994 essay, translated.

330 Epistle’s author made him another hypostasis of the ancient divinity, the embodiment of mankind’s continuing hope in righteousness and salvation.

326 is identified with Michael: simply, this one receives the name of ‘Melchizedek’ (which amounts to saying that there is no link between the two characters, of whom the Prince of Light is Michael, and not Melchizedek91).

322 The ease with which solar mythology was integrated into the Hebrews’ religion (despite a struggle against idolatry) shows the depth of this cult’s tradition. At the same time, the important place occupied by notion of Justice and the righteous in Judaism aided this integration. In eschatological...
