Many still think, that the Son of God was born with all knowledge. He, the Son, never said so. In fact it is a recorded fact that he went through the stringent tuition by an ancient Jewish ascetic sect of Essenes. It is indeed strange that having been brought up under conditions characterized by the practice of severe self-discipline and abstention from all forms of indulgence, suddenly, without any apparent reason, the youngster Yeshûa disappeared from any historical reference for eighteen years.
That’s a long time.
We have but one hint as to what was happening with him. Luke, the evangelist, states (2:52):
“And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.”
No mention where, why, or wherefore, but at least we know that he wasn’t born “all-knowing” as becomes ‘a god’, let alone “The God”, as Allah is perceived by Islam. Paradoxically, Islam’s divine image is based on Hebrew tradition, and Elohim is a grammatically plural noun for ‘gods’.
As for his divinity, there is no argument there. In John’s gospel (10:34) Yeshûa confirms this himself.
“Is it not written in your law, I said, You are gods?”
He repeated the words of the Psalmist (82:6): "You are gods, and all of you are sons of the Most High.”
That, dear friends, embraces you and me, and everyone who becomes aware of the fact that “the Father is in Heaven and Heaven is within you.” Yet, apparently, even for Yeshûa this concept was so difficult as to take him all of 18 years to accept it. To make it his own.
Perhaps, this was Yeshûa’s greatest challenge: how to restore the concept of divinity to its rightful place. Luckily for us, he did grow in wisdom and stature, even though both Islam and Christianity forgot about his teaching.
Edgar Cayce, the American mystic, who drew his knowledge from the Unconscious, reminded us of the Truth. To him I owe my book.
As the story unfolds Satia, the son of a wealthy caravan owner, meets the 12-year-old Yeshûa as the latter flees in rebellion from his Essenes teachers. The two become fast friends and stay that way for the 18 years not covered in the Bible.
