The Holy Grail, The Da Vinci Code, and Sacred Geometry
By Brian Thomas Johnston
I first started studying about the mystery surrounding the idea of the bloodline of Jesus just after Holy Blood, Holy Grail was published. There are mysteries upon mysteries that are outlined in the book and subsequent videos and books on the subject. Many churches around Europe have strange astronomical alignments and symbols. Of course Rosslyn Chapel is always at the center of these mysteries. Rosslyn Chapel was built by Sinclair, who was most likely from a line of Christianized Jews who had been expelled from England in 1099. In 1099 all Jews were expelled from England and many went to Scotland. If has been found that the male Y DNA in Scotland has a large Jewish component. In 1100 in the registries of Scotland there first appear the names, Sinclair, Fraser, and Johnston. We can presume then that these families were Jews who had been expelled from England and had assumed Christian names and migrated to Scotland. These names are associated with properties held by people with those names on the far Northern Coast of Scotland. Earlier registries have no mention of those places. The name Fraser is a mystery as no one knows where it comes from. It just appears in 1100. However, the Tribe of Judah was made up of two clans one of which was Phares. This is the same as Fraser with just the juxtaposition of the ‘r’ and the ‘s.’ This would then be a simple way for a Phares to become a Fraser and melt into the landscape.
In a document dated to about 1325 a Lord Sinclair applies to the King of Scotland to have the first Masonic Lodge and to initiate candidates into Masonry. This same family of Sinclairs built Rosslyn Chapel about a hundred years later. As the Masonic degrees are all associated with Jewish legends, at least in the lower degrees, it is not difficult to imagine that Masonry was started by Christianized Jews to preserve and promote their own heritage.
The next phase in this discussion leads us to Da Vinci’s “The Last Supper.”
The features that have attracted Grail Seekers to “The Last Supper” are the ‘V’ formed between Jesus and what is supposed to be Peter to His right. This is suggestive of the ‘V’ between a woman’s legs, or of sexual union. Peter to Jesus’ right is definitely feminine in appearance and this suggests that as in the Gnostic texts Mary Magdalene is a disciple of Jesus, or even his wife. I examined the painting myself to reveal any other hidden geometry and I found that in fact the whole painting is geometrical in nature. The first thing I noticed is that there is hidden circle above Jesus and around Him.
You can see the outline of the circle in lighter color above the window behind Jesus. I used this as a starting point for the image below.
Once we trace the circle and then take the six tangents from the circle we get a circle within a square, or the squaring of the circle. In many hermetic texts of the period Jesus is referred to as the squaring of the circle. Perfection in human form. We can also see that Jesus is within a pyramid The base of which is the edge of the table. This indicates a connection to Egyptian Mysticism. Before the painting was restored the circle had been covered up by an arch painted above the window, which not in the original. There are many geometrical alignments that are revealed in this analysis that show that Da Vinci was applying his “Man in a Circle” to the ‘Last Supper.” The center of the circle is Jesus’ right eye. This also marks the center line of the pyramid. The geometry around Jesus very suggestive of the “G” the the Dividers and Square as the Masonic Symbol with Jesus as the “G” at the center. The Dividers point down from the top of the circle and the Square has the 90 degree angle on the center line below the pyramid. We could also see this as the “Eye in the Pyramid” as seen on the American Dollar bill and other places. God’s All Seeing Eye. Everything is centered on Jesus’ right eye. Jesus as God.
We can also see that the disciple to the left of Peter has his hand across the throat of Peter and this is the sign of the First Degree of Masonry revealing the Da Vinci was an initiate. Many of the other hand positions of the disciples are also signs of various degrees. Perhaps most revealing of all is that the disciple on the far left, who is supposed to be Bartholomew, after the restorations, has what appears to be a Chalice seated on his head.
We can also notice that the angle at the base of the pyramid is not quite a right angle. If we extend the line and then make a right angle the new line then bisects the chalice on Bartholomew’s head. The Chalice representing Mary Magdalene’s womb. Then if we take a line straight up from the right angle it bisects Peter’s, or rather Mary Magdalene’s left eye. We can see this in the image below.
The image below details the salient features. The resemblance to the Masonic Symbol is quite apparent as is the significance of Mary Magdalene.
We can also take the symbolism one step further and we can see that Jesus is at the center of a Star of David with his filing the apex. The top line of the Star also bisects Jesus neck, symbol of the first degree. His position with the light behind him is exactly the same as when the candidate has his blindfold removed at the end of the ritual of the First Degree and a bright light is behind the Master of the Lodge. This is the same as the large window behind Jesus.
We can also note the usual checkerboard tiling of a Masonic Lodge as the pattern of the ceiling, but Leonardo has turned this all upside down. The Master of the Lodge is the Bright Light of the East. The circle with a dot (eye) in the center is the symbol for the sun. The sun rises in the east. The eye is Horus in the Egyptian Pantheon. From this then we are lead directly into Egyptian mysticism. Jesus then becomes like Moses leading the Captives out of Egypt. It is also worthy to note that the earliest records of Memphis Misraim comes from Italy much later as documents that were found and then put into use again.
This seems to suggest that the “Last Supper” is indeed a painting about the “Holy Grail.” The upwards pointed finger of the Disciple to the right of Jesus is a Degree Sign from the Grand Orient Masonry where the Holy Grail is presented to the “Pilgrim” and it is filled with gall. The Grand Orient has no relation to The Scottish Rite Masonry, but has now been widely adopted by Masonry around the world and is made up of of the 34th to 99th Degrees. Egyptian Masonry is about mysticism and magic.
There is another mystery more recent involving Scots who came to Canada is the mid to late 1700’s. My family was involved and they were presbyterians and likely Masons. They settled in Norwood in the early 1800’s. They had escaped from Scotland after the civil was and were initially Jacobites who converted to Presbyterianism. They built a large Presbyterian Church in Norwood out of yellow bricks. The same yellow bricks were used to built the the Presbyterian Church in Peterborough which is on George Street. About the same time the same brick was used to rebuild the Presbyterian Cathedral at Church and King Streets in Toronto which had been destroyed by a fire. The altar is what is important here and also that the Frasers and the Sinclairs donated large sums of money to build the Cathedral. Above the massive altar area is a large stained glass window of Jesus on the cross with the three Marys. Mary his mother, Mary her cousin and Mary Magdalene. The whole edifice is made of black walnut and so is a priceless work of art. The altar itself is a large slab of black walnut with Da Vinci’s “Last Supper” carved in bas relief. While I do not have an image available with me at the moment Peter in the carving is definitely feminine and assuredly has breasts. I plan to travel there soon and I will take some pictures to add as an addendum.
As this reveals the Da Vinci code is a lot more real than the ‘debunkers’ and scholars have figured out. There really is a massive code and many strange goings on over the last two thousand years regarding all of this. It would seem that the Jews who emigrated to Scotland and became Christianized carried a mythology surrounding Mary Magdalene and the possibility that she was the mother of Jesus’s child. Perhaps this mystery is why they were expelled from England at that time as an attempt to squash the heresy. It is very hard deny that Da Vinci wa a mason. In the book “The Da Vinci Code” there is a list of the ‘Grand Masters of the Priory of Sion. The hoaxers who created the Priory of Sion revealed that the list came from a ‘magazine.’ In fact the ‘magazine’ was a publication of the Rosicrucian Order, AMORC called the Mastery of Life. The 1950’s versions had a list of the Imperators of the Rosicrucian Order over time. This is the same list as was put in the depository as the “Dossier Secrete” in Paris in 1956, with a few additions. Da Vinci in both lists is included. The Rosicrucian Order’s Christian origins is said in legends to be that St. Mark went to Alexandria after Jesus was crucified and started a secret school of the Inner Wisdom. He gave his disciples a small cross with a rose on it. Sub Rosa was a common term in the Roman Empire meaning to keep something secret.
As one final thought we also can consider the fact that Jesus was of the Tribe of Judah, the Tribe of King David and that Fraser is most likely derived from Phares, one of the Clans of the Tribe of Judah. Thus, the same bloodline as Jesus. Is this that they are Tribe of Judah and thus, the true heirs to the throne of David, or are they the true bloodline? This is made a point in fact in that the diaspora are Israel and the Tribe of Judah and the Levites returned to the Land of Judah after the release from Babylon. Are they trying to say they are the true Kings of Judah? This would seem to make sense in that the first degrees are about the building of the Temple in Jerusalem and they rebuild the temple in the lodge. Quite a secret if so, as it is a secret from the Christians Jews and Moslems and they did not want to reveal who they really were. The symbols then were to lead the tribe back to “The Promised Land.” To find out who they really are. Are the Frasers then the Line of Kings and the Sinclairs, the Levites? It would make sense as they built Rosslyn Chapel as a replica of the Temple in Jerusalem.
Side note: I am a Fraser/Johnston and the Johnston’s too were Jacobite’s and they moved to Northern Ireland before the civil war and they fought the English from Northern Ireland and were not of the Church of England, not Catholics, but rather Presbyterians and Masons. Many of our family have darker complexions and curly hair. My father often pondered over it saying we were like Mediterraneans. As we know the Johnston’s were Scots to begin with only migrating later to Ireland, they too as do most Scots have Y chromosome DNA with a relatively high percentage of Jewish blood.
Another point to ponder. After the initiation into the first degree of Egyptian Masonry the candidate is covered in a blue robe. The disciples are wearing blue and red and Jesus and Mary Magdalene are wearing both. The Red in Rosicrucian Medicine and healing is positive energy, while the blue is negative energy. The positive, red is most often used in healing, while the blue is calming and gives you greater awareness. Mary wears a more feminine pink. Jesus’ red is the deepest, indicating he has the greatest power. Some of the disciples are wearing gold, the alchemical colour of the elixir of life. One disciple wears white, the colour of the robes of the Manchiens and St Augustine was a Manichean before he became a Christian due to the laws forbidding his religion. The Knights Templar, whose histories are recounted in the last degrees before the 33rd degree, als wore white and so were the Brother’s in White. However, they also had a red cross of healing. There are many wild roses in Rosslyn Chapel. This harkens back also to the comment that Christianity is a wild Olive grafted onto a domestic olive tree. All over Europe, The Americas and Asia, wherever there are Cathedrals there are Rose Windows and thus they become the Wild Roses grafted onto the domestic one.
The reason why it is called Masonry, is not because they were once masons as tradesmen, it is because the Mason’s Guild closely guarded their secrets on how to build these magnificent buildings from traditions passed down from ancient times stretching back to Egypt. They were Masonic the respect that they had to keep these secrets until the end times when they would find their true heritage. The whole initiatory process and drama ensured it’s survival as people will always want to be privy to a secret. Like at the end of the First Degree when your blindfold is removed and you are looking up at a bright light behind a seated figure in full regalia. The light blinds you and the sight of the Master shocks you so you never forget.
The Holy Grail, The Last Supper, The Bloodline of Christ and the Masonic Order
After finding the astonishing geometry found in Leonardo Da Vinci’s, “The Last Supper” I began further analysis of the painting and I enhanced the restored images of the painting and the amazement was even more profound. There are so many hidden messages in this painting that it staggers the imagination. The image above was taken from the ‘handout’ image of the newly restored, “The Last Supper,” housed by the refectory of the Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan, Italy, and then greatly enhanced.
This image is of the painting and the disciples to the left of Jesus. Notice that the tablecloth has a pattern on it and all the food is visible. The bread looks very fresh. It appears to be a fish on the platter, Perhaps another piece of meat on the plate to the right. All the disciples have small bowl shaped cups.
To the right of Jesus is Bartholomew at the end standing. John on the far right and Judas seared next to him. It is John that is being suggested as Mary Magdalene by many authors. I feel that this is truly the case after all the analysis. Here we can see one disciple with his hand like a knife across ‘Mary Magdalene’s’ throat like a knife. This the sign of the First Degree of Masonry. It means you would rather have your throat slit than reveals the secrets. Judas is seated next her. He is looking up at something. His right hand is grabbing for a piece of bread and his right hand brabs a money bag. Behind and emerging from behind him is a hand clutching a ‘trowel.’ or a butter knife. The hand belongs to know one as it can’t be Mary’s as it is too far away and it does not seem to be anyone else’s either. It seems as if Mary is being threatened not to reveal her secret.
Mary here appears very feminine and she has a woman’s eyelashes. The disciple to her right appears to be telling her a secret while threatening her at the same time. Judas listens intently.
Above Bartholomew’s head is what appears to be a chalice on the wall, but perhaps even more astonishing is the fact that there is a man’s head and shoulders on the wall as well. His mouth is just above the chalice and his nose is in alignment with the centerline of the cup. Both his eyes are clearly visible the rest of his head and shoulders are faintly outlined on the wall. He may be wearing a hood. He has a sort of half-smile expression on his face.
The Chalice in the modern Grail mysteries represents the womb of Mary Magdalene who was carrying Christ’s child at the time of his crucification. Some say that Joseph of Arimathea spirited her away to the South of France, or perhaps even to England.
This image takes the corners of the roof as the base lines and it shows how the line passes through Jesus’ right eye. The “All Seeing Eye” of Masonry. The eyes of the three disciples on the far left line directly up with Jesus’ eyes. Mary, the disciple who threatens her and Judas are all under the line. It would seem that the disciple second to the left of Jesus is Thomas, as he has a doubting look on his face and he looks similar to Jesus being called Didymus, or the Twin. His face is in a small triangle all by itself. The angle at which Mary sits is used to make the cross below the table which frames Thomas’s face. These are Crosses of St. Andrew, the Patron Saint of Scotland, where were the origins of Masonry.
This image shows the sight lines of various features in the painting. The lines are drawn according to where the fingers point. The Disciple to Jesus’ right has his finger pointing straight up, the Sign for the First Degree of Egyptian Masonry. The disciples to the right of Jesus all point to Jesus’ right eye, as does the finger slicing across Mary’s throat. The disciple to the right of the one threatening Mary points right to Jesus heart and the two lines form a cross of St. Andrew on Mary’s throat. If we take a point at the ‘plumb line from the disciple pointing upwards across Thomas’ finger tip to the left it points straight to Jesus’ mouth. The Word. Judas is not listening to Jesus as he seems engrossed in his own concerns. Does his duplicity lie in his knowledge of Jesus and Mary? The line pointing to Jesus heart goes right through Judas’ eyes.
Now we rework the circles and the lines and triangle and we have what appears to be a rendition of the Giza Plain with it’s three pyramids. Jesus forms the great Pyramid, the triangle around Mary would be Khufu’s and there is a third small pyramid with the ‘knife’ at it’s center. The makings of very good mystery story. In fact, however the square of the is slightly offset to Jesus’ right and the line goes down his right cheek. He looks down and to the left, the traditional positions of Jesus’ head when he died on the cross.
If we now superimpose the plumb lines that center on Jesus’ right eye we get the full masonic symbol with the ‘G’ in the center starting from Jesus’ right eye and the Square at the bottom starts at the left at the top right corner of the Chalice and then down to the bottom of the painting where it intersects with the plumb line from Jesus eye, and then proceeding at 90 degrees to the top right of the picture. If we examine ‘Khufu’s’ pyramid it has a problem. The angle is too shallow. It is at 45 degrees, rather than the normal 52 degrees. This makes the top however, to be a 90 degree angle. This may symbolize that Mary Magdalene is the foundation of the Masonic Order. In Masonry everything is centered upon God rather than Jesus. Da Vinci seems to be turning this all upside down, represented by the checkerboard pattern being on the roof rather than the floor. The painting may his way of showing displeasure at the Masons for keeping it all secret and it is his way of him revealing their secrets without getting murdered. Da Vinci died in 1519 over two hundred years before the official start of the Scottish Rite in London. The Scottish Rite has always had royalty as its Grand Master. 1519 was also 100 years before Kepler published his Harmony of the World which geometricizes nature. Kepler was the Head of the Music Department at Tubingen University where modern Rosicrucianism began with the publication of Christian Rosenkreutz and The Chymical Wedding. The motto of the Masons is, “God Geometrizes.”
In this image the back wall sight lines have been removed and we use Mary Magdalene’s eyes as the sightline for the ‘caps’ of the pyramids. We also take the tangents from the circle at 45 degrees from the bottom axis and then we take the line from where Mary’s pyramid intersects with Jesus’ pyramid and when we emphasize the pyramid lines with the new lines we get the Giza plateau with a Star of David over the Great Pyramid of Jesus.
In the First Degree of Egyptian Masonry the Candidate is asked:
Da Vinci seems to be revealing a ‘crime’ here hidden in the creation of the Order itself and he returns Jesus to his rightful place as the source of “Light” rather than the Worshipful Master of the Lodge. The pyramids state the claim by both the Rosicrucians and the Masons that “it began in Egypt.” Alexandria, Egypt is where Mark historically set up his Secret School giving his disciples a Golden Cross with a Rose on the axes symbolizing Sub Rosa. “Keep it Secret. Keep it Safe!” The Star of David represents Jesus role as King of Israel and King of the World. For Masonry God is not an active participaant in the world, but rather is, “The Great Clockmaker.” He sets the universe in motion and then lets it play out. The Architect, rather than the King of the World. Deism. In Deism God made all the laws at the beginning of the universe and has no further interaction. As a King, God rules with Justice and can change it all as He pleases.
Soon after the candidate is asked:
Many are the ‘Plumb Lines” in the painting, as are the “Square and the Compass,” the trowel may be the ‘butter knife” held in a hand coming from nowhere. I can find no “Rough Ashler” and no “tassel” which may indicate that Leonardo had no connection to the Order. Give me the Sign:
Then the Candidate is asked:
In this final image we have the Star of David, The Giza Plateau and the lines from the cup. If we take the line from the “ghost” image of the man above the Chalice’s mouth right at the center line of the cup, to the point of the Magdalene Pyramid and onwards to the center line of the Star of David it is right on Jesus’ heart. The “cup’ is dear to Jesus’ heart and is then the “bloodline” of the King of Israel. His progeny.
Does this all mean that Jesus had a child with Mary Magdalene. We cannot tell from this. Did Leonardo believe that He did? That too is uncertain. It seems rather that he sought to expose the ‘Secrets” of the Masons in such a way that it would not get him killed and that he thought the fact that the Order was keeping these Secrets was a “Crime.” If the true bloodline of Jesus was intact, then Leonardo may have felt it should be remade and that the “illegitimate kings” of Christendom would have to bow to their “True and Rightful King” who was of the Royal Bloodline of Jesus Christ. The Sang Real. It may too be that Chretien in his original telling of the Quest for the Holy Grail was presenting Masonic Secrets in a different way over three hundred years before in 1190. The Grail was considered a bowl or dish when first described by Chrétien de Troyes. There, it is a processional salver, a tray, used to serve at a feast. We see a silver platter in front of Jesus. In the late 12th century, Robert de Boron wrote in Joseph d’Arimathie that the Grail was Jesus’s vessel from the Last Supper, which Joseph of Arimathea used to catch Christ’s blood at the Crucifixion. That would indicate that the “ghost” man on the wall was Joseph of Aramathea. Was then the Grail a cup that caught Jesus’ blood, the “Sang Real” or the womb of Mary Magdalene? In Cretien’s incomplete poem, dated sometime between 1180 and 1191, the object has not yet acquired the implications of holiness it would have in later works. While dining in the magical abode of the Fisher King, Perceval witnesses a wondrous procession in which youths carry magnificent objects from one chamber to another, passing before him at each course of the meal. First comes a young man carrying a bleeding lance, then two boys carrying candelabras. Finally, a beautiful young girl emerges bearing an elaborately decorated graal, or “grail” Is the beautiful young girl the one seated at Jesus’ right hand? Is it Mary Magdalene?
Da Vinci leaves us with a very great mystery and a far greater one than any scholar has presented before with this masterpiece, “The Last Supper.” Much more analysis of the painting is required to ferret out any other hidden details and their meanings, as I know there are still several ‘secrets’ to be revealed. One last very interesting item is derived from another painting, “The Grail Castle,” by Hans Toma in 1899. The painting is obviously of the Cathars castle where they made their last stand against the Crusaders. The Cathars have long been considered to be the “Defenders of the Grail.”
One final image of the Grail from Quimper Cathedral In Brittany. Notice it is surrounded by Wild Roses. The cross at the top is standing on a rose.
The Shakespeare Code, Bacon Wrote Shakespeare, The Truth about the Priory of Sion, Shakespeare’s Self Written Eulogy, Sir Isaac Newton and the Bloodline of The King of the Jews.
As we follow the clues to the true story behind all of smoke and mirrors we have seen so far we need more proof to assuredly claim that a Priory existed to secure the true bloodline of the Christ. Above is the plaque at Shakespeare’s Monument. For the astute from what we have learned thus far in the investigation it should pop right out at you.
The top line has PS Genio Maronem. The secret was kept with the mythical Nuns of the Maronites. It seems to quite simply read I am one of the Priory of Sion who protects the offspring of Mary. Spencer Lewis said he got the name for the Rosicrucian Order from his Master in France. It is the Ancient and Mystical Order, Rosae Crucis, AMORC. The word with the raised “S” is Socratem, a misspelling, and if we don’t use the “S” we AMORC with “TE” left over. However then CROMAT is ancient Egyptian for The Very Truth, the then would mean all, or all the very truth.
On the next line we have PS SENG ER WHY, which of course in code is P-riory of S-ion Blood (Seng) Royal, (RE) YHWH, if we use the “H” twice like Leonardo. So we have now the Priory of Sion, AMORC, CROMAT, who protects the Royal Blood of The Offspring of Mary, YHWH.
In the image above was also circled Page Then, but it looks like Page ten so we can use a ten skip code as well.
Here with the skip ten code we have R OY (U) SOHPIH, Roy SOPHIE, the code name for Mary Magdalene. Queen Mary Magdalene.Then we have Leave Living to Serve.
Then we use another word skip code to decipher the rest that I have until now.
Diagonally to the top right: But see all whose name Shakespeare with envious death thou By so Fast:Maronem (MARY M.)
To see whose this monument if thou canst PS.
He hath writ far more than quick nature did with whome in this monument death has plast read if thou canst Sofa PS.
By utilizing the skip codes in the Shakespeare Sonnets we take 1 and add ten to ge to Sonnet 11
As fast as thou shalt wane, so fast thou grow’st
In one of thine, from that which thou departest;
And that fresh blood which youngly thou bestow’st,
Thou mayst call thine when thou from youth convertest.
Herein lives wisdom, beauty, and increase;
Without this folly, age, and cold decay:
If all were minded so, the times should cease
And threescore year would make the world away.
Let those whom nature hath not made for store,
Harsh, featureless, and rude, barrenly perish:
Look whom she best endowed, she gave the more;
Which bounteous gift thou shouldst in bounty cherish:
She carved thee for her seal, and meant thereby,
Thou shouldst print more, not let that copy die.
Then we add the number of degrees of the opening of the Masonic Calipers, 53 to one and we get 54
When I have seen by Time’s fell hand defaced
The rich proud cost of outworn buried age;
When sometime lofty towers I see down-razed,
And brass eternal slave to mortal rage;
When I have seen the hungry ocean gain
Advantage on the kingdom of the shore,
And the firm soil win of the watery main,
Increasing store with loss, and loss with store;
When I have seen such interchange of state,
Or state itself confounded to decay;
Ruin hath taught me thus to ruminate
That Time will come and take my love away.
This thought is as a death which cannot choose
But weep to have that which it fears to lose.
The in another application of the skip code we now go to Sonnet 71 as we add 17, the number of the Rose in the First Sonnet. Also, from the first sonnet we get three score, or 60 plus one, skip 10 and we get 71.
No longer mourn for me when I am dead
Than you shall hear the surly sullen bell
Give warning to the world that I am fled
From this vile world with vilest worms to dwell:
Nay, if you read this line, remember not
The hand that writ it, for I love you so,
That I in your sweet thoughts would be forgot,
If thinking on me then should make you woe.
O! if, I say, you look upon this verse,
When I perhaps compounded am with clay,
Do not so much as my poor name rehearse;
But let your love even with my life decay;
Lest the wise world should look into your moan,
And mock you with me after I am gone.
So, from the clue we have found Shakespeare’s own eulogy. We also have “The hand that writ it,” from the code on the Tomb.
Rose in Latin surrexerunt and the head of the Rosicrucian Order is called the Imperator, or Pontus. Now we can see that Plantard’s misreading of the significance of the PS is not Priory of Sion, but rather Pontus Surrexutant, The Rose Pontiff. The sign of the Imperator. The memorial was placed there by the Imperator of the Rosicrucians, who was not Shakespeare, but by either the compiler of the Sonnets into their number system and order, or by someone close to him. The text was collated by two of Shakespeare’s fellow actors and friends, John Heminge and Henry Condell, who edited it and supervised the printing. They appear in a list of the ‘Principall Actors’ who performed in Shakespeare’s plays, alongside Richard Burbage, Will Kemp and Shakespeare himself.
The date the monument was erected is not known exactly, but it must have been before 1623; in that year, the First Folio of Shakespeare’s works was published, prefaced by a poem by Leonard Digges that mentions “thy Stratford moniment” [sic]. John Weever transcribed the monument inscription and grave epitaph, and H. R. Woudhuysen’s analysis of the undated manuscript suggests that his visit to Stratford was made not much later than 1617–18.
It could have been none of these men and in fact the answer to the Mystery of Mysteries surrounding the relationship between Bacon and Shakespeare has been here all along right in front of our eyes, if we canst see. It appears in the decoding below:
We look for the only “B” and skip back three yo “A”, go up one and take the next three letters NCO to the left and you get an anagram for Bacon then we complete the sentence. Bacon dide this monument Shakespears with whome whose name doth deky Tombe All he hath Writ to serve his wit. Thi seems like a confession to Bacon having written all the Shakespearean works with Shakespeare. With this discovery, then I must eat by words as it seems that Bacon did write the Shakespearean plays and Sonnets and they collaborated. This would explain so many mysteries and it seems to be in the author’s own words.
Now we have both Shakespeare and Leonardo association with the PS, not Priory of Sion, but rather the Rosicrucians. I have not been able to find good information on the grave monuments of succeeding Imperators and Bacon’s does not seem to reveal much so far.He may have felt everything that needed to be said was said on Shakespeares and the eulogy could have been for both of them. Are they each other the subjects of the Sonnets? I think actually the Sonnets are for a few different lovers whereas the eulogy is to all of us. I am sure they did not think it was going to take so long for us to hear it. Now we will take a look then at Sir Isaac Newton’s monument and the scales will fall off our eyes.
On the left we have the letters CRC, Christian Rosencruetz as it is in the Rosicrucian documents. At the top center we have a “S” and then two lines down we have a “p” Then we take the “R” and the “s” at the other end of the and then the two “S”s at the ends of the line below the space. Then we get from the “p” PR, PS, PS, PS and PS. He didn’t want us to miss it. Then we start to draw some lines.
Now we get a pentangle with the letters with CRC on the left side.
Now we draw a line down the middle and trace lines for the ‘p’ to the other points of the pentangle to get a pentagram, the Sign of Venus and Mary Magdalene.
Now this tells us who Isaac newton was. PS Primus, RC. The Imperator of the Rosicrucian Order.
Then we join all the lines starting with the S for Supreme Being and we get the Sephiroth of the Kabbalah. The Tree of Life.
Now we can also trace the Star of David from the points of PRS with the X for 10, the number of the points on the tree of life. This could not in the wildest stretch of anyone’s imagination be coincidence and it not only links Newton directly with the Rosicrucians, but it puts him right at the head as the Leader of the Organization, Under the imperator is the Grand Master, who we know not who they are yet. No one has ever been able to directly link Newton to the Rosicrucians before, let alone that he was Imperator, as claimed.
Now AMORC as it is now is not directly related to the lineage of the the 19th century Order due to a period of low activity during the succeeding periods. When Freemasonry came into being in the early 18th century the Rosicrucians were badly damaged by this fraudulent organization. The way that the Freemason’s came into being was that they found some old manuscripts from the Scottish Rite and updated to them to their liking and then added another 30 degrees over the next 200 years. These degrees were found gradually over time in old records and then added as they were discovered. There is no ancient ties beyond the 18th century with the Freemasons to the Masons of previous centuries. The Masons were very few in numbers and they too went into decline with the rise of Freemasonry. Freemasonry was centered on Royalty, not the secret lineage of Jesus, who they dismissed. The present AMORC has no idea about any of this for reasons I will explain later and all knowledge of this has been lost since just after Newton’s time for reasons that will become clear and it may be the reason for Da Vinci’s outrage.
How does this all tie into the lineage of Jesus?
In the genealogy Jesus is a Phares of the tribe of Judah. Fraser was one of the names recorded on the North Coast of Scotland in 1100. This detail was found on an old map made from the census of that year. Three names appear for the first time. Sinclair, Johnston and Fraser. All on the North Coast of Scotland. There are now a few studies which show the presence of Jews in Scotland in the early 11th Century, in the book, “When Scotland was Jewish,” they reveal that the evidence of Jews in medieval Scotland is scanty. In 1180, the Bishop of Glasgow forbade churchmen to “ledge their benefices for money borrowed from Jews”. This was around the time of anti-Jewish riots in England so it is possible that Jews may have arrived in Scotland as refugees, When Scotland was Jewish : DNA evidence, archeology, analysis of migrations, and public and family records show twelfth century Semitic roots. As wee Y-chromosome DNA studies have shown a small percentage of Jewish DNA in the general population. This would explain the much earlier presence of Masons in Scotland than in other places. It is very likely that the general system as it become originated in Scotland for arcane reasons. Some of which may have been to protect the bloodline of Jesus’ family as the true line of Jewish KIngs.
During the reign of Domitian he had some of Jesus’s family arrested what follows is a report of what happened.:
There still survived of the kindred of the Lord the grandsons of Judas, who according to the flesh was called his brother. These were informed against, as belonging to the family of David, and Evocatus brought them before Domitian Caesar: for that emperor dreaded the advent of Christ, as Herod had done.
So he asked them whether they were of the family of David; and they confessed they were. Next he asked them what property they had, or how much money they possessed. They both replied that they had only 9000 denaria between them, each of them owning half that sum; but even this they said they did not possess in cash, but as the estimated value of some land, consisting of thirty-nine plethra only, out of which they had to pay the dues, and that they supported themselves by their own labour. And then they began to hold out their hands, exhibiting, as proof of their manual labour, the roughness of their skin, and the corns raised on their hands by constant work.
Being then asked concerning Christ and His kingdom, what was its nature, and when and where it was to appear, they returned answer that it was not of this world, nor of the earth, but belonging to the sphere of heaven and angels, and would make its appearance at the end of time, when He shall come in glory, and judge living and dead, and render to every one according to the course of his life.
Thereupon Domitian passed no condemnation upon them, but treated them with contempt, as too mean for notice, and let them go free. At the same time he issued a command, and put a stop to the persecution against the Church.
When they were released they became leaders of the churches, as was natural in the case of those who were at once martyrs and of the kindred of the Lord. And, after the establishment of peace to the Church, their lives were prolonged to the reign of Trajan.
— Eusebius of Caesarea, Historia Ecclesiae, 3:20
As we can see the claim on the throne was very real to the Romans and worried them a great deal. It is uncertain why Domitian did not execute them,.but he showed them mercy if the Kingdom was on spiritual. I think the real reason was that they did not have any money to pose a threat and he may have went after bigger game, such as Mary Magdalene’s offspring. It is very hard to believe that a Jewish man of about thirty would not be married and have children, however it states that Mary Magdalene was one of his funders. She was donating large sums of cash to keep the movement going. As the legends go she went to France and brought with here another Mary, which could have been Jesus’ daughter, even if it was not her own.
The question of the Madonna’s virginity was always a matter of dispute, so let’s examine the whole scenario in more detail:
From the Gospel of Luke KJV
23 And it came to pass, that, as soon as the days of his ministration were accomplished, he departed to his own house.
24 And after those days his wife Elisabeth conceived, and hid herself five months, saying,
25 Thus hath the Lord dealt with me in the days wherein he looked on me, to take away my reproach among men.
26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,
27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary.
28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favored, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favor with God.
31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.
32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:
33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
34 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?
35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
36 And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.
37 For with God nothing shall be impossible.
38 And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.
39 And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda;
40 And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth.
41 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:
42 And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.
43 And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
44 For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.
45 And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.
46 And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,
47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
Many sources, including the Bible state that Jesus had brothers and sisters and that the disciples were married with Children. That would make all of the family of Jesus in line for the Throne of David and in many ways then as he True Pontifex Maximus of the Roman Empire and that is why Domitian was so afraid of the family. As Kepler showed us that the key to the code of the Rose and Lily centered around sex we will explore these venues in the next section.
Da Vinci’s Last Supper, The Building of the Temple, and the Movement of the Masonic Order.
The geometry of “The Last Supper” is as precise as a complex engineering drawing. It may well be that this very complexity is what has kept the secrets hidden for so many centuries. In this next section of discoveries in the remarkable painting we will explain how Leonardo expressed how Jesus was in the Temple of Solomon in the Temple. The Star of David over a man is an old Hermetic symbol where the position of the body and arms form the triangles of the star. It is called “The Hermetic Seal of Solomon,” as seen below.
However, Da Vinci uses the arms of Jesus to form the downward pointing triangle and other features in the painting to define the whole. We will see how by moving the starting circle to focus on the heart of Jesus a whole new story is revealed and told by the painting. Leonardo must have been a supreme genius to be able to encode not only was was revealed in the first two sections of this investigation, but what will be uncovered in this phase of the research. The painting is so precise it is like drawing for a complex machine.
I noticed that the opening behind Jesus was a door rather than a window and then that on either side of the door were then pillars. There are two pillars in the Temple of Solomon and the Second Degree of Masonry is about the building of the Temple of Solomon and the murder of Hiram Abif and it’s subsequent cover up. Hiram Afi’s body is cut up into twelve pieces and scattered around. This is obviously a reworking of the Osiris myth. In the Osiris myth Osiris is killed by his brother Seth and cut up into twelve pieces and scattered around the Nile Valley. Isis finds Osiris Penis and impregnates herself with Horus. This is the image of Mother and Child that is the Model for Mary and Jesus as Mother and Child. Isis was a very popular goddess in Rome. The Eye of Horus in Egyptian mythology is the eye in the pyramid. In Da Vinci’s painting then Jesus becomes Horus as everything is centered on his right eye. His all seeing eye. In ancient times it was often reasoned that the sun could not be God as it was not always in the sky. However, Horus was ever present and his Eye was always All Seeing.
The Eye of Horus
In the image above the pillars on either side are traced out. The pillar on the right is Boaz and it is duplicated in the pillar on the left, Jachin. The pillars are placed at the right hand edge of the pillars in the painting. This corrects for perspective. The perspective for the whole painting is centered on Jesus right eye as will be demonstrated. The paintings center line plumbed down through Jesus’ right eye is traced as is the far edge of the painting. The far side of the table is the foundation for the pillars. The line for that edge of the table is traced out.
Now we add the lines down the outside of Jesus’ arms to the outside bottom corners of the pillars. This forms the upwards pointing triangle and the Great Pyramid of Giza. In some legends Abraham is the architect of the pyramids. I think he is portraying here Jesus as the Architect of the Universe.
From the near side of the right hand pillar to a line in the painting between Mary and her questioner we trace a line and then a plumb line down between the two to the edge of the table and we get a perfect right angle. This seems to suggest that Mary Magdalene is the foundation of Masonry. In Gnostic texts Mary Magdalene is called beloved of Jesus and he often kisses her. In the Bible it states that Jesus beloved disciple sits next to him. Could it be that there never was a John and that it was always Mary Magdalene and that John was a place name for Mary Magdalene as redacted by the later Catholic Church which only wanted male priests and no priestesses. We know from archaeological evidence that many of the early Christians in Egypt and to the east towards Palestine were lead by women. To compete this deception then the Church would have added in Paul’s letter where he wrote that Jesus only had male disciples and so priests should be women. This is directly contradicted by all other sources outside of the gospels where Mary Magdalene is perhaps the closest confident of Jesus. The secret then is compounded in the fact that like the Elohim, the Church should be a reflection of the Creator, both Male and Female. This has then lead to the catastrophic imbalance of men in women in the world today. The Catholic Romans wanted women to be little more than slaves who spoke when they were spoken to. In Judaism the line is carried by the woman and not by the man. If your mother is a Jew, then so are you.
Now we place a circle centered on Jesus’ right eye with a diameter the same as the outward sides of the pillars. This represents the sun setting in the west over the pyramids at the equinox. Due west from Memphis. The west bank of the Nile is the realm of death. Jesus is going to die.
The we add a line half way up the pillars which is the exact height of Mary’s eyes. From the point where the line intersects the circle we draw a line down to the center line of the painting to form the Star of David, or rather the Great Hermetic Seal of Solomon. The we take a line from the top of the right angle covering Mary following the line made by the back of Mary’s questioner to the edge of the table forming another right angle triangle, but this time at 30 degrees, rather than 45. Jesus throat is cut by the crossbar of the downward pointing triangle of the star. Next we draw a larger circle whose edge just touches Mary’s triangle and the edge of the table centered on Jesus right eye. Then we draw a line at 90 degrees straight up from the 30 degree triangle which is the same line as the center line of the Chalice. It also divides the Ghost Man’s face exactly in half.
Next we extend the line made by the 30 degree triangle to the top of the painting. It interests exactly with the point where the circle intersects the centerline of the painting. Then we take a line that intersects with the top of Mary’s triangle and down to the plate of fish. Notice how it intersects with the Star of David. On the table now we have the loaves and fishes.
Now we trace lines along the top of each of the panels on either wall to the centerline where they intersect exactly on Jesus’ right eye. The we take a line along the top of the small panels on the right wall and they too intersect exactly on Jesus’ right eye. They also intersects with Mary’s questioners eyes indicating that he is watching Jesus’ eyes as he questions Mary. Line also cuts across the throats of the two disciples next to Mary’s questioner who are looking at Jesus. Bartholomew’s throat is not cut by this line, but is but by the plumb line down the center of the Chalice. All of them would die.
Next we place another star of David centered on Jesus’ right eye which then expanded to the size of the outer circle. The celestial kingdom thereby being represented as well as the earthly one represented by the edge of the table. This then makes him King in both Heaven and earth. It is also the First and second Degree of Masonry, Sun and Moon.
Then we trace sight lines from across the painting from the top and bottom of the Chalice.
Now we add a third circle, centered on Jesus right eye to the outside edge of the windows and another Star of David to match. Now we have the first three degrees of Masonry. Sun, Moon and Star, or rather Sun Moon and the Master of the Temple. At this point you become a Royal Arch Mason and we have an Arch at the center bottom of the picture. The redactors of the painting had covered up most of the salient features of the painting, but did paint an Arch above Jesus above the doorway. This Arch has now been removed after restoration. The Master has been returned to his rightful place. Jesus is Master.
Now we remove the sight lines, the extra stars and circles and retain the Chalice Lines. We remove the new triangles and replace them with the Giza pyramids. We then trace the diagonal on the right side of the painting of the rectangle formed by the remaining lines. This then forms a cross of Saint Andrew. Saint Andrew is the Patron Saint of Scotland and the rectangle with a cross of St Andrew on it is the Flag of Scotland. Now we have a story told. The left hand side of the painting is Egypt. The Giza Plain. The right hand side is Scotland where the secret was taken. Now it is legend that Joseph of Arimathea took Mary Magdalene to Glastonbury, but could he have taken her to Scotland instead? It was not even part of the Roman Empire and she might be safe there. The follows the Motto: ”It Started in Egypt.” We must also remember Mary and Joseph’s Flight to Egypt when Herod was going to assassinate them. We also then draw a line from the mouth of the Ghost Man to the top of Mary’s pyramid and it intersects with the centerline at Jesus’ heart. Then we take a line to the top of the third pyramid and it intersects with Bartholomew’s heart. It also crosses Mary’s heart.
If we take the center line of the rectangle on the right hand side and trace both axes we get the combined flags of England and Scotland, perhaps representing the travel of the Grail through England, possibly Glastonbury and thence to Scotland.
Now for the final image we re add the sight lines of the panels on either wall and lines that intersect with each point of the star. This tells the story of how through Jesus the mystery and the Secret which originated in Egypt and then traveled to the “Ultimate Thule” of Scotland.
Jesus is the sum of all Sacred Symbols at the center of all things. The Symbol now over Jesus is very much like a Rose Window combined with The Star of David. The whole becoming like stained glass.
When we use the room as a whole there are no apparent correlation with any of the objects in the painting as we observed with the other starting points.
If we trace the diagonals all we are left with is the Cross of Andrew, the Flag of Scotland.
These are the legends of St. Andrew from Scotland:
The Apostle Andrew, son of Jonas, the Galilean fisherman and brother of Simon Peter, traveled as a missionary through the whole of Asiatic and European Scythia finally arriving in Achaia. He was arrested at Patras on the Gulf of Corinth and, by order of the Roman Consul, crucified being bound with ropes to a cross decussate (diagonal cross or saltire). Early in the fourth century, his remains were carried to Byzantium and honorably interred by order of the Emperor Constantine. During the same century and following the instructions he had received in a vision, the monk Regulus (St. Rule) set sail from Patras with the relics of Saint Andrew. He and his companions were shipwrecked off the east coast of Scotland and in fulfillment of his vision, he built a shrine on the spot where they landed at Kinrymont, placing the relics therein. While there may be some controversy between the traditionalists and the historians regarding the century of this occurrence, the fact remains that pilgrims devoutly visited St. Andrew’s Shrine throughout the centuries. During her lifetime in the 11th century, Scotland’s saintly Queen Margaret greatly encouraged such pilgrimages and not only instituted a free-passage ferry across the Firth of Forth (North and South Queensferry) to aid the pilgrims but also provided dwellings near to the shrine for their shelter. The site of the shrine eventually became the royal burgh of St. Andrews, known for its magnificent cathedral, which was founded in the twelfth century but, due to many adversities, was not finally completed until 1318 when it was consecrated in the presence of Robert the Bruce, four years after the Battle of Bannockburn. Today, only ruins remain of what was once one of Scotland’s finest cathedrals and the relics of the Apostle Andrew have long vanished but thanks to its University, the oldest in Scotland, and the Royal & Ancient Golf Club, the town of St. Andrews still remains world-renowned.
With reference to a second legend, which relates to the winning of a battle by Pictish and Scottish warriors against Athelstane of Northumbria’s army, the following inscription on a simple memorial stone located in the quiet parish churchyard of Athelstaneford in East Lothian, Scotland describes the details: “Tradition says that near this place in times remote Pictish and Scottish warriors about to defeat an army of Northumbrian saw against a blue sky a great white cross like St. Andrew’s and made in its image a banner which became the flag of Scotland. “
It is related that on the eve of the battle, King Fergus of the Picts had a vision in which Saint Andrew told him to be of good courage and promised him a glorious victory. Thus, according to the legend, Saint Andrew became the patron saint of the Picts and later a united Scotland.
It is interesting to note that shortly after the completion of Saint Andrew’s Cathedral that Sinclair applied to the king to establish Masonry. The association of the Cathars with the Grail is perhaps only peripheral, as they were a sort of Gnostic sect that considered the world to be evil and that the God of the Old Testament was Satan. For them it was Satan who created the world. This is similar to the Zoroastrian demiurge and Zoroaster was considered to be a previous incarnation of Jesus as reported in the book, “Mansions of the Soul,” by Spencer Lewis the former Imperator of the Ancient and Mystical Order, Rosae Crucis. Just before the completion Saint Andrew’s Cathedral after several decades of harassment and re-proselytising, and, perhaps even more important, the systematic destruction of their religious texts, the sect was exhausted and could find no more adepts. The leader of a Cathar revival in the Pyrenean foothills, Peire Autier was captured and executed in April 1310 in Toulouse, just before the completion of St, Andrews cathedral in Scotland. It said by some that one of their sacred texts was spirited away and that it related to the grail. We can also note that the Pistis Sophia and The Gospel of Mary (Magdalene) were both Gnostic texts.
This renders the whole of Gnosticism and Masonry to be a reaction to the idea that Jesus had a wife and had children. In the Rosicrucian Imperator Robert Fludd’s Summum Bonum the inscription reads, “The Rose feeds the Bees.”
The secret meaning of the Bee’s is Virgin Birth as the Romans thought that bees were asexual as they found them all to be female. The secret meaning of this symbol then is the Virgin Mary, or here perhaps Mary Magdalene. The super hidden meaning may be that Mary Magdalene became full with Jesus’ child even though they did not have intercourse. By the time of Leonardo and the Rosicrucians bees were known to have a Queen that gave birth to all the bees. In this way Mary Magdalene becomes the Queen. This is entirely in contradiction to the Catholic Church which consider the Madonna to be the Queen of Heaven who in more ancient times was Astarte. In several places the Gnostics discuss a spiritual form of reproduction which they call “The Bridal Chamber” which does not involve sex. The Chymical Marriage of Christian Rosenkreutz may also be related to this. However this all plays out for Da Vinci it is not far fetched to find him influenced by such ideas when he painted “The Last Supper.”
Some may doubt the antiquities of the Mysteries presented here and the ancient nature of the Order and that it started in Egypt, but here is a confirming letter from Clement of Alexandria:
From the letters of the most holy Clement, the author of the Stromateis. To Theodore.
You did well in silencing the unspeakable teachings of the Carpocrations. For these are the “wandering stars” referred to in the prophecy, who wander from the narrow road of the commandments into a boundless abyss of the carnal and bodily sins. For, priding themselves in knowledge, as they say, “of the deep things of Satan”, they do not know that they are casting themselves away into “the nether world of the darkness” of falsity, and boasting that they are free, they have become slaves of servile desires. Such men are to be opposed in all ways and altogether. For, even if they should say something true, one who loves the truth should not, even so, agree with them. For not all true things are the truth, nor should that truth which merely seems true according to human opinions be preferred to the true truth, that according to the faith.
Now of the things they keep saying about the divinely inspired Gospel according to Mark, some are altogether falsifications, and others, even if they do contain some true elements, nevertheless are not reported truly. For the true things, being mixed with inventions, are falsified, so that, as the saying goes, even the salt loses its savor.
As for Mark, then, during Peter’s stay in Rome he wrote an account of the Lord’s doings, not, however, declaring all of them, nor yet hinting at the secret ones, but selecting what he thought most useful for increasing the faith of those who were being instructed. But when Peter died a martyr, Mark came over to Alexandria, bringing both his own notes and those of Peter, from which he transferred to his former book the things suitable to whatever makes for progress toward knowledge. Thus he composed a more spiritual Gospel for the use of those who were being perfected. Nevertheless, he yet did not divulge the things not to be uttered, nor did he write down the hierophantic teaching of the Lord, but to the stories already written he added yet others and, moreover, brought in certain sayings of which he knew the interpretation would, as a mystagogue, lead the hearers into the innermost sanctuary of that truth hidden by seven veils. Thus, in sum, he prepared matters, neither grudgingly nor incautiously, in my opinion, and, dying, he left his composition to the church in 1, verso Alexandria, where it even yet is most carefully guarded, being read only to those who are being initiated into the great mysteries.
But since the foul demons are always devising destruction for the race of men, Carpocrates, instructed by them and using deceitful arts, so enslaved a certain presbyter of the church in Alexandria that he got from him a copy of the secret Gospel, which he both interpreted according to his blasphemous and carnal doctrine and, moreover, polluted, mixing with the spotless and holy words utterly shameless lies. From this mixture is drawn off the teaching of the Carpocratians.
To them, therefore, as I said above, one must never give way; nor, when they put forward their falsifications, should one concede that the secret Gospel is by Mark, but should even deny it on oath. For, “Not all true things are to be said to all men”. For this reason the Wisdom of God, through Solomon, advises, “Answer the fool from his folly”, teaching that the light of the truth should be hidden from those who are mentally blind. Again it says, “From him who has not shall be taken away”, and “Let the fool walk in darkness”. But we are “children of Light”, having been illuminated by “the dayspring” of the spirit of the Lord “from on high”, and “Where the Spirit of the Lord is”, it says, “there is liberty”, for “All things are pure to the pure”.
To you, therefore, I shall not hesitate to answer the questions you have asked, refuting the falsifications by the very words of the Gospel. For example, after “And they were in the road going up to Jerusalem” and what follows, until “After three days he shall arise”, the secret Gospel brings the following material word for word:
“And they come into Bethany. And a certain woman whose brother had died was there. And, coming, she prostrated herself before Jesus and says to him, ‘Son of David, have mercy on me.’ But the disciples rebuked her. And Jesus, being angered, went off with her into the garden where the tomb was, and straightway a great cry was heard from the tomb. And going near, Jesus rolled away the stone from the door of the tomb. And straightaway, going in where the youth was, he stretched forth his hand and raised him, seizing his hand. But the youth, looking upon him, loved him and began to beseech him that he might be with him. And going out of the tomb, they came into the house of the youth, for he was rich. And after six days Jesus told him what to do, and in the evening the youth comes to him, wearing a linen cloth over his naked body. And he remained with him that night, for Jesus taught him the mystery of the Kingdom of God. And thence, arising, he returned to the other side of the Jordan.”
After these words follows the text, “And James and John come to him”, and all that section. But “naked man with naked man,” and the other things about which you wrote, are not found.
And after the words, “And he comes into Jericho,” the secret Gospel adds only, “And the sister of the youth whom Jesus loved and his mother and Salome were there, and Jesus did not receive them.” But the many other things about which you wrote both seem to be, and are, falsifications.*
This contradicts all Church teachings that declare that nothing hidden, esoteric, or secret.
The disciple seated next to Mary and threatening her is most likely Peter as in the Pistis Sophia we have: Simon Peter, annoyed at Mary’s dominance of the conversation, tells Jesus, “My master, we cannot endure this woman who gets in our way and does not let any of us speak, though she talks all the time.” Mary defends herself, saying, “My master, I understand in my mind that I can come forward at any time to interpret what Pistis Sophia [the divine being who gives wisdom] has said, but I am afraid of Peter, because he threatens me and hates our gender.” As the Pistis Sophia is Gnostic it would have been a banned book in Leonardo’s day and he probably would have held it as a heresy, as he probably held Masonry to be as well.
The Catholic Church founded by Peter only accepts men as priests. No priestesses are allowed. The meaning of the Rose is also from the most ancient of times as the the Second Scorpion King’s glyph was preceded by a seven petaled Rose. This symbol was used up until the third dynasty to represent kingship. Therefore the meaning of Mark’s Rosy Cross was both Sub Rosa and the King of the World. The Rosy Cross then has two meanings as both the need to keep secrets and Christ as King. This is also related to the Song of Solomon 2:1 where it says: I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys. The cross below is from the 1500’s and a Rosicrucian symbol. It states: I am a flower of Sharon and a Rose in the Valley.
We also find that the Seal of Martin Luther was a rose and a cross:
We also find that the Seal of Martin Luther was a rose and a cross:
In the image of the Grail from Quimper Cathedral In Brittany we have both roses and lilies.
In closing the sign for the first degree of Memphis Misraim is the upwards pointing finger.
The image here is Leonardo’s John the Baptist, One of his last paintings and what a wry smile he has. Notice also the two fingers at the heart. In the First Degree the aspirant must also show the sign of a caliper pointed at the heart resting on the chest.
I will continue the detective story as there is more Information I can wring out of the geometrization of “the Last Supper.”
End note: There are those who are trying to cover up what the Letter of Clement says. They say it is gnostic and the Innermost Sanctuary Hidden by Seven Veils is a previously used pagan and gnostic symbol, but I have studied virtually all of the gnostic texts and can find no reference to this. If there is any possible references they come a long after the time of Clement. In fact centuries later. This is not the only place where Clement speaks of himself as an initiate:
Haste, Tiresias; believe, and thou wilt see. Christ, by whom the eyes of the blind recover sight, will shed on thee a light brighter than the sun; night will flee from thee, fire will fear, death will be gone; thou, old man, who saw not Thebes, shalt see the heavens. O truly sacred mysteries! O stainless light! My way is lighted with torches, and I survey the heavens and God; I become holy whilst I am initiated. The Lord is the hierophant, and seals while illuminating him who is initiated, and presents to the Father him who believes, to be kept safe for ever. Such are the reveries of my mysteries. If it is thy wish, be thou also initiated; and thou shall join the choir along with angels around the unbegotten and indestructible and the only true God, the Word of God, raising the hymn with us. — Clement, Exhortation to the Heathen, xii
Also, Pseudo Dionysis in the “Names of God” and the “Celestial Hierarchy” states that he too is an initiate and what he is writing about is taught by the Masters. He speaks of the Secret Teaching being a long standing Order. All of these writings are not considered to be heretical and all speak of initiates and secret teachings.
