Divine Comedy reveals who Jesus really was, where he came from, what he hoped to accomplish, and his place among the world’s great spiritual leaders. This is the definitive book about Jesus Christ and what actually took place during the decades and centuries following his crucifixion. Among the controversial points detailed in this book are:
• Jesus believed in reincarnation, but this view was played down by the early apostles who wanted to keep the message simple to convert as many people to Christianity as possible.
• Jesus never claimed to be the Messiah, but rather the son of the Father in the same sense we all are. He had achieved a level of spiritual perfection and his main mission was to bring the truth about existence to everyone to bring them closer to the Creator.
• Anti-Semitic passages were deliberately introduced into the New Testament by early church translators to deflect the blame for the crucifixion from the Roman authorities to the Jews. The reality was that Jesus was causing disturbances in Judea, posing problems for Rome.
• The 20th century “sleeping prophet” and psychic healer, Edgar Cayce, revealed through his own readings that Jesus came from a long line of mystery religions, including the Jewish cabala, which predated Jung’s secular views of the conscious mind, the personal subconscious, and the universal unconscious.
• Jesus could not have been born of a virgin since he came from the line of David, which passed through his father Joseph, not Mary. He also had several brothers and sisters, a fact played down by the early church.
Jesus appeared to Mary Magdalene first in spirit form, non-corporeal, since she was the woman he loved more than any other and was the first among his disciples. His appearances to the other disciples also took the form of a spirit-body, which they did not recognize at first, not the flesh-and-blood man they had known in life.
