The spiritual and psychological symbolism of hidden in the stories of Shem, Ham, and Japheth, Noah, Jonah, and more.

Lecture quote:

"...anybody who wants to know the hidden wisdom of the scriptures – the bible –has to study the tree of life. Otherwise we start building towers of Babel – and creating confusion, because what is written in the Bible – Gnosis - cannot be understood without Kabbalah. The famous Tower of Babel is mentioned by many, and it is because in that tower (according to the book of Genesis) is where the many languages that we speak in the world started; of course every symbol, every story - whether in the Bible or in the scriptures of Buddha, or the Hindus i.e. the Bhagavad-Gita, the Mahabharata, or The Koran or any other sacred book of any other religion, all of them - are written in symbols. Thus, in order to comprehend any sacred book, we need to understand that each symbol can be interpreted in seven ways, in seven manners. The science of the Bible, which is the science of Kabbalah, is the esoteric science given to the western world in order to understand the wisdom of the path. So, remember that the Bible is the sacred book given to the Westerners, in order for them to understand how the path of the self realization is. Thus, when the Bible mentions a tower, we Gnostic's always refer to it - as everything written in the Bible or any other holy book - as something that is always related to the human being, because the goal of life is to create the human being into the image of God."

This is a lecture from the free online course Kabbalah of Genesis

Course Description:

The book of Genesis (Hebrew: Bereshit) is a book of Kabbalah that hides profound and ancient knowledge. Only those who have been educated in the language of Kabbalah can perceive the meanings hidden in the Hebrew letters and words, and the symbolic stories and events. This course will help you enter into the real meanings of Genesis.

"The book of Genesis is a Gnostic book written by Gnostics; the whole book hides the mystery of Daath, the Hebrew word for knowledge, which in Greek is Gnosis. So, Genesis is 100% Gnostic, whose myths hide a lot of knowledge." - The Tower of Babel Part 1
