THE HOLIEST                                 Saint John (Explained)


Tablet Three

Chapter 2

"And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of
Esa was there:"

"And both Esa was called, and his disciples, to the marriage."

"And when they wanted wine, the mother of Esa saith unto him, They have no wine."

"Esa saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come." (John 2:1-4)

<1>Esa did not want to start his miracles, "mine hour is not yet come."

<2>Also he called his mother "woman."  That shows again that he was beyond the earthly bonds and even his mother to him was not any different than other women.  That is, he was now only the Son of God (in Pure Consciousness) and had no earthly bonds.  <3>Furthermore, there is no differentiation for him.  All are equal in his eyes. Only the more righteous is higher.


"His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it." (John 2:5)

<4>But his mother insisted.


"And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece."

"Esa saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim." (John 2:6-7)

<5>To show his respect to his earthly mother, he conformed to her request.


"And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it."

"When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,"

"And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse; but thou hast kept the good wine unto now." (John 2:8-10)

<6>Esa made the water wine, but the true meaning of it is that the wine he made, through His Grace, was different than the earthly wine.  When a person reaches the blissful state of overcoming the lower nature (the first three chakras), there is a liquid-like fluid which will be experienced in the throat and body which is known as "nectar."  The bliss of this experience is so incredible that the person looks very drunk and ecstatic.

<7>Because of the presence of Esa at the feast, through his powers over the three gunas, and because he was asked to make wine for them, he caused the water to affect the people in such a way that they tasted the bliss of experiencing their spirit (eating manna).  <8>The bliss of the spiritual experience is far greater than being made drunk by earthly wine.  That is why the "governor of the feast" was so surprised by the excellence of the wine (blessed water) he received.

<9>Therefore Christ never approved of earthly wine.  In fact anywhere in the Scriptures that wine or liquor is mentioned in any sense is referring to that spiritual experience (nectar).


"This beginning of miracles did Esa in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him." (John 2:11)

<10>Esa himself did not want to make people believe in him because of his miracles, but because of his teachings.  However, in order to make people believe in him, miracles were used.   <11>As history has shown, people become so attached to the miracles of the Prophet that they forget about the teachings.  <12>Miracles are for those who do not understand the reason behind how they are manifested.  For he who knows the Laws behind all things, there is no miracle, and all things are miracles!


"After this he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples: and they continued there not many days." (John 2:12)

<13>Esa left his home.


"And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Esa went up to Jerusalem," (John 2:13)

"And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:"

"And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables;"

"And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise." (John 2:14-16)

<14>The temple is a place of meditation, quietness, and where people should remember God and read about Him.  It is not a place of worldly exchanges and activities.

<15>That is why Esa started his purification of the Jewish religion with this act of reminding them that the temple is a place of worship, not a place of business.


"And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up." (John 2:17)

<16>After Christ did this act, the meaning of the Scripture was revealed to his disciples, and they understood why God had said this and what He meant by it.


"Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?"

"Esa answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up."

"Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?"

"But he spake of the temple of his body." (John 2:18-21)

<17>The temple as a building is an external symbol of the temple of the body. When a building is designed and known as the temple and kept for worshipping, people will think and remember God when they enter it.  They will quiet the worldly passions in themselves when they are there. <18>So in fact the effect of the building as a temple should be an internal effect on the Soul.

<19>This is why when a person engages himself in many activities or allows his worldly passions to run wild and does not even go to religious activities, he is bound to fall into his lower nature and be drowned in the grip of Maya.

<20>The true temple of man is his own body.  If man keeps his body, mind, and environment pure, so also will his temple (body) be pure.  But those who are drowned in worldly activities should go to the temples as buildings so that they might give themselves a chance to quiet their passions for some time and feel the peace of the Lord.

<21>Now if even the temples and places of worship become areas of worldly activities, then where is there hope for man to find the peace of God?

<22>That is why Esa was giving them a lesson by his actions.  <23>Also he was referring to the temple of his body which he said he would raise after three days and nights as a sign of his legitimacy of being Christ.


"When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the Scripture, and the word which Esa had said." (John 2:22)

<24>Even his disciples did not understand him completely until later on.


"Now when he was in Jerusalem at the Passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did."

"But Esa did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men,"

"And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man." (John 2:23-25)

<25>Those who truly believed in him, he initiated to his name, "...believed in his name,..."  He wanted them to understand his teachings.  However, the majority only believed in him because of his miracles and that is why he did not accept them as his disciples (did not initiate them), "But Esa did not commit himself unto them."

<26>"Because he knew all men." Esa knew that they were in their lower natures and would try to make him commit himself to them.  Then they would bind him to their ways, and then judge him with their filthy minds and concepts.
