    Renaissance scholars, searching for esoteric and ancient wisdom to confirm the truth of Christianity, fastened on the Jewish kabbalah. The body of ideas that emerged, the "Christian kabbalah," made for some remarkable episodes in the history of Jewish-Christian relations, and eventually interested even such unlikely figures as G.W. Leibniz. Demystifying Kabbalah Symbols Kabbalah is an ancient series of mystical teachings. Originally intended to clarify the true meaning of the Tanakh (Hebrew Bible) and demystify Jewish religious traditions, it has undergone various adaptations over the centuries: Jewish (both Karaite and rabbinic), Christian, New Age, and even Occultist.

    The Freemason occult is based upon occult mysticism (a bunch of hodge-podge) from the Zohar. Kabbalah is a branch of Jewish mysticism, which is thought to have originated in the 13th century. Its teachings come from an ancient volume book called the Zohar, which offers interpretations of the inner meaning of the Torah. Book Overview Christian Kabbalah is the great scholar Ernst Benz's introduction to the relatively little-known but fascinating subject of Christian Kabbalah. Christian Kabbalism is the interpretation of Jewish Kabbalistic themes in the context of the Christian faith, or an interpretation of Christian doctrines utilizing Kabbalistic methods and.

      Blavatsky would have been the first to take issue with his contention that she was a follower of “Christian kabbalists,” though he probably means that she, like them, saw the Kabbalah as a key to symbolic interpretation. HPB certainly had an interest in the Kabbalah, and it is mentioned as an authoritative source in her writings.   In fact, regarding this fanciful construct, see my earlier essay titled "Christian/Hermetic Kabbalah, the Christian Saviour and Truth" dated 20th January For the sake of clarity, I am happy to reiterate the stated details which I published in " The Book of Sacred Names " regarding the deliberations, mystical or otherwise, on the letter.
