Hidden Wisdom of the Bible (Volumes 1 & 2) Author: Geoffrey Hodson
Format: Two paperbacks
Pages: 515 total
Abridged edition in two volumes.
The Bible belongs to a special category of literature. Mystics, Kabbalists, and students of sacred texts regard the Scriptures as allegorical, constructed of symbols, analogies, and parables, woven into a tapestry of meaning that holds the age-old truths of existence.
In this insightful interpretation of the Holy Bible, the profound spiritual and power-bestowing secrets of the sacred language of these allegories are liberated in the revelation of divine truth.
The first volume explains and illustrates:
How a literal reading of the Bible misses rich meaning concealed in the stories.
How Biblical symbols were used to encode esoteric truths.
How the parable of the Prodigal Son illustrates the soul's cycle of forthgoing and return.
How the life of Christ can be viewed as an initiatory journey.
Volume two is an esoteric exegesis of Old Testament stories such as:
The Flood and the Tower
The life of Joseph as a Mystery Drama
Moses and the Exodus
