the unique Israelite civilization provided no facts of getting had a paranormal initiatory culture of any style. certainly, famous Kabbalah students resembling Gershom Scholem have famously insisted that there has been no mysticism in any respect in biblical Israel.
It is that this unaccounted-for peculiarity that introduced a painstaking research, the result of that are mentioned during this e-book. The examine sought to foreground what has been dubbed the "second channel" in the Pentateuch and the ebook of Joshua, a story stratum hypothesized to include ideational and a few concrete information about the conjectured lacking initiatory procedure of the monks of the 1st Temple.
The Sôd speculation substantiates that the authors of the Pentateuch and the ebook of Joshua meant to speak to destiny generations the very fact of the life in their another way hid esoteric approach. The temple clergymen in Jerusalem (Kingdom of Judea, or Judah, the "Southern Kingdom") who created this communique sought after it to outlive any unexpected calamity, possibly once they had witnessed the destruction of the dominion of Israel (the "Northern Kingdom") via the Assyrians in 720 BCE. With that during brain, they encrypted their communique in and during the categorical shape that the Pentateuch and the ebook of Joshua took. Their pondering most probably used to be that the differently complicated, vague esoteric fabric captivatingly provided in semihistorical settings and in very good, spellbinding literary-narrative kinds might make sure the work's long term survival.
The priestly conversation was once now not coded in a manner that may have required a distinct key or "code" (since then the duty of restoration by means of destiny readers might end up to be unfeasible and therefore now not serve the last word goals of the authors). fairly, it was once embedded when it comes to literary-allegorical and symbolic-esoteric capacity. to guarantee a concise and particular details move, an complicated approach of linguistic-semiotic-esoteric correspondences used to be constructed; hence, if the meant recipient(s) controlled to understand at the least one very important component of the method, the remaining may spread, developed out of logical inferences fascinated about the rising method of intentionally shaped correspondences.
As to who could have been the meant particular recipients (here, paraphrasing Derrida): "the mystery" used to be made public but with no revealing it. The Hexateuch endeavors to create either coded esoteric directions to person initiates, in part through parabolic projection onto Exodus and different narratives, and in addition, at the same time, a countrywide exoteric application of transformation of a complete humans into what will be referred to as "a country of clergymen and a holy people," in impact, a kingdom of initiates and non secular aspirants--a feat fairly unheard of in history.
The hid inner-core esoteric wisdom matters a paranormal transformation of attention of a would-be Israelite priestly start up who thereby profits entry to the nationwide deity, with the latter's notable powers. Even the very fact of the lifestyles of the priestly mystical-initiatory process, not to mention its contents, was once a secret.
