In the novel, ‘INTELLIGENCE CODE‘, several Bible phrases were quoted to explain the background of the Haredi’s prophecy, to be known as what was told by the prophet, Yuz Asaf.
In the novel, Yuz Asaf is the same prophet as Yeshua, who is also the same figure with Jesus Christ from Christianity.
Moreover, in the novel, Marry Magdalene appeared as one of the primary apostles after Yeshua was saved by Joseph of Arimathea from the Roman’s crucifixion trial on Jesus. Jesus was injured but saved, and then he was treated by Marry Magdalene in the Chapter #49 of ‘INTELLIGENCE CODE’.
Let’s see which Bible phrases were quoted in the specific novel parts: the blue coloured texts are the novel parts and the Italicized ones are the Bible parts:
INTELLIGENCE CODE #35
[About Jesus Private Life from his 12 to 30 – Where Jesus was and what he did?]
“… Do you know what he did and where he was during the time? Well, there have been many theories, but no one knows exactly what he did because the New Testament compilers and editors, probably Roman Catholics, didn’t want to let others know about Jesus’ private life…”
[Inside the Endnote]
“And Jesus increased wisdom and ‘stature’ and in favor with God and Man.“ [The Gospel of Luke 2-3, http://www.biblegateway.com/]
INTELLIGENCE CODE #39
[What Jesus learned and what he enlightened from his practice in India]
Through his meditating on himself for several months, Yeshua finally realized his faith to God lies in himself. There is no difference or discrimination in awakening yourself, becoming into the ultimate ‘Oneness’.
“Once, on being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, “The coming of the kingdom of God is not something that can be observed, nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is in your midst.” [Luke 17, 20-21, Ibid.]
“The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!” [Matthew 6, 22-23, Ibid.]
INTELLIGENCE CODE #50
[Jesus’ Description of New Jerusalem in Kashmir/ Accompanied by Saint Thomas]
Before Yeshua was leaving for Kashmir, he appeared in front of the disciples and ate with them, demonstrating his flesh and bones, displaying he was not a ghost.
“See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself. Touch me, and see. For a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have.” [Luke 24:39, Ibid.]
Yeshua showed up at a church at the Golgotha Hill, and tried to persuade people to leave Israel for a new kingdom. However, they thought Yeshua meant to go to heaven, near Yahweh because Yeshua’s description of Kashmir was so perfectly beautiful, peaceful, and dream like. Also, Yeshua couldn’t explain where he was going and asked them to join directly because the Romans could chase after them. Yeshua described Kashmir as a new heaven:
“Then I saw ‘a new heaven and a new earth’ for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.’ He who was seated on the throne said, ‘I am making everything new!’ Then he said, ‘Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” [Revelation 21, 1-5, Ibid.]
Most of his followers including apostles didn’t understanding his meaning; only Saint Thomas understood what Yeshua meant.
INTELLIGENCE CODE #52
[Gospel of Thomas – What Saint Thomas learned from Jesus/ Yeshua]
“Okay, let me recite his teachings a little bit more. Issa emphasized inner awakening rather than external flamboyance or attractiveness because outer shape could easily delude and daze your mind very easily. Issa also said,
‘Wretched is the body that is dependant upon a body, and wretched is the soul that is dependent on these two.‘
[The Gospel of Thomas No.111,The Nag Hammadi Library Version, http://www.gnosis.org/naghamm/gthlamb.html ]
He also emphasized the awakening of your self. He answered his disciple’s question of when the kingdom will come:
“It will not come by waiting for it. It will not be a matter of saying ‘here it is’ or ‘there it is.’ Rather, the kingdom of the father is spread out upon the earth, and men do not see it.”
[The Gospel of Thomas No.113, Ibid.]
Indeed, Saint Thomas deeply understood the inner awakening as well as faith and sincerity toward God. After then, Saint Thomas left for South East India to follow Yeshua’s will to evangelize more Indian people.
In this section where the phrases of the Gospel of Thomas were quoted, it is possible to see how our internal awakening was emphasized by Jesus through Saint Thomas. Similarly, some phrases of Luke and Matthew show how much Jesus emphasized our inner awakening rather than outer commandment or order from Yahweh, or God.
In the novel, INTELLIGENCE CODE, I tried to liberate the meaning of Bible with a wider scope as well as to overcome the politically limited meaning of Judaism, so called under the political scheme of Zionism.
