Gnostic Mysteries 11 Resurrection the Sign of Jonah.mp3
The Bible tells the story of Jonah being "swallowed" by a "great fish," and Jesus indicated its importance, but the real meaning of these symbols has only been known to the initiates. By studying Hebrew and Kabbalah, you can learn what these beautiful stories really teach.
“An evil and adulterous generation seek after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonah: For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” - Matthew 39-40 :12
“This exotic narration, apparently somehow confused with the marvelous book of Jonah, has an esoteric foundation. It is in regards to a very ancient symbolic ceremony that consisted in leaving the initiate for three days and three nights within the unutterable mystery of a cavern or coffin, similar to a fish in its shape. It is disclosed in some old traditions that are lost within the frightful night of all centuries, that during this interval, while the body of the initiate was laid down as a cadaver within the coffin, the soul that was absent from the dense human form directly experienced in the superior worlds the ritual of death and life (Muth VaChayim מות וחיים).” - Samael Aun Weor
