Yeshua Ben Joseph
- It is my contention that Jesus is but one entity. And that entity is
the Luke Jesus. The Luke-Jesus was the Ego of Christ, and thereby is
the Jesus we mean when we reference our Savior. The other Jesus (of
the Solomon line) was used merely to impart knowledge to the Luke
Jesus via his astral body.
The astral-body contains the imaginary and intellectual life of
consciousness but is not consciousness itself, the I AM. The Luke
Jesus is the One who washed his robe in the blood of the lamb, the
Man who suffered the scourges of Roman and Jewish whips, the One who
was hung mercilessly on the cross at Golgotha, who cried for the
salvation for all mankind, who suffered, laughed, cried, desired,
willed, danced, drank, ate, and finally died that we may be saved
through his sacrifice. The idea that Jesus was two people is true
only to the extent that the Solomon-Jesus was an inner source of
knowledge and power, but a power under Luke-Jesus's command.
Of the first to recognize Jesus's Solomonic knowledge, according to
the Bible, were the Hebrew rabbis in Jerusalem. Suddenly the meek,
mild, innocently-radiant little boy of Jerusalem started exposing
powerful, arcane knowledge that he taught as the rabbis listened in
awe and amazement. The strange event merged together two opposite
life-lines running parallel to each other through the Bible, one in
the Luke Gospel and one the gospel of Matthew, both seemingly in
contradiction with the other and irresolvable.
The "Dead Sea Scrolls" call the two Jesus' The Messiah of Aaron and
the Messiah of Israel: the priestly Messiah and the kingly Messiah.
Most Christians would be revolted by the idea that Jesus was some
kind of composite being or a fabric of personalities sewn together
like a rag doll. That idea doesn't resonate with my experience of
Christ, as well---and I think it didn't with Rudolph Steiner. I
believe his words have been misinterpreted, in other words. He
taught that the astral body of the "Jesus of Egypt" was absorbed by
the "Luke Jesus" in order to prepare him for the monumental trials
that he endured in his life time, and without which he would not have
been fully capable of expressing the Christ impulse with such
perfection. But that doesn't mean Jesus was two different, opposing
personalities, two I AMs.
The Trinity of Jesus can be summarized as follows.
One Ego (God), One Hypostases (Jesus, unifying the human and divine
natures), Two Natures (the human and the divine).
