Is The Scriptures Just Myth?

Is The Scriptures Just Myth?

In the PBS series, The Bible's Buried Secrets,  archaeologist William Dever of the University of Arizona stated: "It challenges the Bible's stories if you want to read them literally, and that will disturb many people."   In further examining the problem it was asserted: "The farther you go in the biblical text, the more difficult it is to find historical material in it," says David Ilan of the Hebrew Union College in Jerusalem. "The patriarchs go back to Genesis. Genesis is, for the most part, a compilation of myths, creation stories, things like that. And to find a historical core there is very difficult."   For instance, archaeologists have found evidence that a small group of Canaanite slaves escaped from Egypt — not the mass migration described in Exodus.   
Is the scriptures nothing more than "...a compilation of myths, creation stories, things like that"?  What both the believers and the critics have yet to understand and acknowledge, is the fact that the biblical authors who were Mystics, purposely wrote the scriptures with unhistorical assertions and events intertwined into the text, in order to inhibit the people from reading them literally or historically -- thereby forcing the intelligent seeker to look beyond what Paul portrayed as the "letter that killeth", and seek the inner esoteric meaning. 
Unless a Fact or a Truth is made appropriate to the people it is intended to reach, then its propagation will be useless.  When we instruct elementary school students, we present the information in an age and grade-level appropriate manner.   In the words of the Church Father Origen we find his assertion that the Word takes on a form which is appropriate to a certain group of people, that it might begin the process of bring those people to a spiritual level of maturity.  Thus, Origen writes that “If a Greek wished by wholesome instruction to benefit people who understood only Egyptian or Syriac, the first thing that he would do would be to learn their language; and he would rather pass for a Barbarian among the Greeks, by speaking as the Egyptians or Syrians, in order to be useful to them, than always remain Greek, and be without the means of helping them. In the same way the divine nature, having the purpose of instructing not only those who are reputed to be learned in the literature of Greece, but also the rest of mankind, accommodated itself to the capacities of the simple multitudes whom it addressed. It seeks to win the attention of the more ignorant by the use of language which is familiar to them, so that they may easily be induced, after their first introduction, to strive after an acquaintance with the deeper truths which lie hidden in Scripture. For even the ordinary reader of Scripture may see that it contains many things which are too deep to be apprehended at first; but these are understood by such as devote themselves to a careful study of the divine word, and they become plain to them in proportion to the pains and zeal which they expend upon its investigation” (Origen Contra Celsum).
Pythagoras, Giordano Bruno, Gurdjieff are among those who stated that the Laws and the Foundation of Creation were all composed in Mathematics and Numbers.  In the below subheading entitled The Original Spiritual Language Of The Gospels, I  will demonstrate that the Original Gospels were written in Hebrew Characters, and in this language each letter is also a number.   What this means is that every name not only has a meaning in what the name portrays, but also has a numerical equivalent that when used and understood in conjunction with the other names of people, places or things, can portray an esoteric meaning that is not at all apparent to the readers who believe they are reading either a myth, or an historical account.   What this means is that the authors of the scriptures re-engineered the common beliefs of the people -- many of which can rightly be portrayed as founded upon myth or folklore -- and by using the meaning of the names and numbers they were able to conceal and preserve important truths of the mind and spirit that a sincere seeker will need to know to prevail over self, and bring about their own spiritual regeneration.  We often hear the complaint with respect to the more ancient copies of the scriptures, that the spelling of names and places is often rendered differently.  But what is not understood is that the variations in the spelling is used to reveal and conceal a different esoteric truth.  
Throughout the below I will demonstrate that the authors of the scriptures were the Essenes who authored the Old Testament as an outreach project to assist in the development of the nomadic animal-sacrificing heathen Jews.   What the Torah and Old Testament therefore is, is the beliefs, myths and folklore of the heathen tribe of Jews that was re-engineered into a sacred writing that employs allegorical symbols which develop the mind, and uses mental-catalysts which connect the outer person with their inner Self, and ultimately the Indwelling Logos (Mind of God - aka Son of God).  When the Church Father Origen wrote that: “Scripture contains an unhistorical element in-woven with the history, in order that the worthlessness of the latter may drive us to seek the spiritual meaning” (Origen quoted under Origen Adamntius; The Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics) -- what he was making reference to was the fact that the literal body of the scriptures were little more than "Jewish fables" (Titus 1:14).  Why?  Because the Jewish fables and folklore were the basis of the people's beliefs.  And while those who only saw the literal interpretation of the written word can be portrayed as having been (in the words of Paul) slain by the "letter that killeth", those who sought to understand the underlying truth beneath the cloak of the written text, were able to perceive the Living Word of God.  
It has been noted and pointed out by Atheists and critics of the Bible that on the surface -- and because of the similarities -- it would appear that the authors of the scriptures copied the Gospel accounts from other religions.   Quoting one such source: "The Jesus of the Gospels bears a striking resemblance to other ancient heroes and the figureheads of pagan savior cults" (see The God Who Wasn't There).    The web site the Pagan Origins of the Christ Myth, this question is posed:  Did Christianity borrow ideas from other religions?   And the answer provided to the reader: Our Christianity doesn't come from Jesus and a big bang. It comes from the accumulation of legends and theologies by people who believed in Jesus. The origin of those ideas wasn't Jesus. The origin was the myths, legends, philosophies, prejudices, literature, superstitions, and primitive cosmology of ancient western culture. Christianity was a product of its time and place.  
In the CNN Blog article named The Jesus Debate: Man Vs Myth, we can observe the above ignorance with respect to the true nature and reality of the scriptures taken to new heights.   (quoting)  Timothy Freke was flipping through an old academic book when he came across a religious image that some would call obscene.  It was a drawing of a third-century amulet depicting a naked man nailed to a cross. The man was born of a virgin, preached about being “born again” and had risen from the dead after crucifixion, Freke says.  But the name on the amulet wasn’t Jesus. It was a pseudonym for Osiris-Dionysus, a pagan god in ancient Mediterranean culture. Freke says the amulet was evidence of something that sounds like sacrilege – and some would say it is: that Jesus never existed. He was a myth created by first-century Jews who modeled him after other dying and resurrected pagan gods, says Freke, author of "The Jesus Mysteries: Was the ‘Original Jesus’ a Pagan God?"     In the first place neither Timothy Freke, the scholars in support of the New Testament, as well as the scholars and critics against the validity of the Gospel accounts, comprehend the difference between Myth and Allegory!!!   Even when an account begins as myth or folklore, and is then re-engineered into an allegorical account where the original myth or folklore is used as a cloak containing an important body of esoteric information, the end allegorical account can no longer be portrayed as myth or folklore.  But because the linear-based thinking and interpretation of the supposed experts and scholars are incapable of utilizing their undeveloped and academically-atriphoed intuitive spheres of mind are incapable of perceptively understanding the inner meaning that is composed in allegorical symbols, catalysts and the meaning of the names and numbers to perceive the inner spiritual meaning that is not apparent to those who read the text as literal accounts.   And if any of these authors -- i.e., believer, pseudo-gnostic philosopher, scholar or critic, possessed any higher perception and understanding of his own Cosmology of Mind that was referenced by the ancients in the words: Know Thyself -- then each of them would immediately reject their own words as utter ignorance.  
What the Atheists and critics have never considered is this:  The fact that what is presented is in the scriptures is not at all an historical account (see An Inconvenient Truth) -- but rather, what is presented is a series of Universal Allegorical Symbols of Laws, Natural Forces and Higher Consciousness that is totally relevant to every person who has ever walked upon the face of the earth -- and can therefore be rightly portrayed as the Cosmology of Mind and Being.   What this means is that such allegorical symbols as the Virgin Birth,  the Twelve Disciples, the symbol of Joseph that is not at all understood, the crucifixion, and even the name Jesus, all portray realities and conditions of mind that are as universal to the Ebionite Nazirene authors of the Gospels, as these universal allegorical symbols are to all the people's of the earth -- even those who live on a remote island.   What is the meaning of the name of the person, place or thing?  What is its numerical equivalent?  What numbers are used in conjunction with the allegorical symbols that blend and mold the names written into the body of the text?
As a mystic begins to comprehend the reality of what is portrayed as the Illusions of Plato's Cave -- and he begins to discover that what is portrayed as illusions, are in fact allusions -- and all the forms of nature are imbued with aspects of mind impressed into the forms that man sees and interacts with on a physical level -- only then can such a mystic begin to evolve to the degree that they fulfill the statement in the Gospel of Thomas: (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you . For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest."    The fact that this world is very much a mental-womb (see The Womb Of Mother-Earth) -- and what man observes in the outer world are aspects of mind projected into the forms of nature that when rightly understood, have the power to nourish him in the Gospel objective of bringing about the Heightening And Expansion Of Mind -- culminating in the initiation of the next stage of soul-birth where the person you are in this world as an Embryonic Image Of Your Higher Soul-Self (see also The Reality Of The Soul), is then able to be nourished by the higher impressions of the soul which act as food for the mind, in conjunction with the Universal Laws and Forces of Consciousness acting within the Cosmology of Mind which has been preserved in the esoteric base of knowledge concealed within the allegorical scriptures (see An Inconvenient Truth) -- as the seeker/disciple brings about that condition of mind portrayed in the name Jesus (Yeshua/Joshua), as the prodigal son/daughter is reborn in the Edenic Kingdom of Origination (see ).
          What believers, critics and pseudo-intellectuals all fail to understand is the reality that man does not make up the allegorical symbols that are used in the scriptures -- but rather, he interprets from a higher state of mind what already exists.   In the analogy of Plato's Cave, the forms and images that are danced upon the wall of the Cave that those imprisoned erroneously believe are real, are created by objects of a higher twelve-dimensional reality that are real.   And this is why the Gospel of Thomas declares the necessity to "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you..."   The fact that EVERYTHING that you observe in Nature is aspects of mind allegorically impressed into the forms that organic man observes with his very limited physical senses -- and the meaning of these allegorical symbols are the expression of Divine Providence -- the authors of the scriptures merely used what is called the"language of the soul" to compose the scriptures in a language that already exists and is Universally Comprehended by the higher soul-self of each person that is not manifest in the physical body (see  Man As An Embryonic Image Of Your Higher Soul-Self ).   That the symbolism themselves in their original scriptural native environment has the power to act as a catalyst that connects the seeker/disciples mind with what these symbols represent within the Mind of the Soul-Self  -- and that as a catalyst, the allegorical scriptures composed in the language of the soul has the potential to bring about the Heightening And Expansion Of Mind -- is a reality that those who reject the scriptures as mere myth, do not at all understand.
