This lecture continues the previous lecture "Abraham the Innermost," and explains the symbolism of his wives and children, as well as the meanings of mount Moriah, Mount Sinai, and the Mount of Olives.

There is more to us than a physical body; learn about the internal bodies created through alchemy, that "Second Birth" described by Jesus when he said, 

"Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the pneuma, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the pneuma is pneuma. The pneuma bloweth where it listeth. . . . So is every one that is born of the pneuma." - John 3

And Paul wrote,

"All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of anthrōpos humans, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. There are also epouranios heavenly bodies, and epigeios terrestrial bodies: but the glory of the epouranios is one, and the glory of the epigeios is another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differs from another star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: It is sown a psychikos soul body; it is raised a pneumatikos spiritual body. There is a psychikos body, and there is a pneumatikos body. And so it is written, The first anthrōpos human Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a giving life spirit. Howbeit that was not first which is pneumatikos, but that which is psychikos; and afterward that which is pneumatikos. The first man is of the earth, choïkos earthy: the second man [Chokmah] is the Lord from ouranos heaven. As is the choïkos, such are they also that are choïkos: and as is the epouranios, such are they also that are epouranios. And as we have borne the image of the choïkos, we shall also bear the image of the epouranios. Now brothers, I tell you this: Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, and corruption cannot inherit incorruption. Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye [the pineal eye], at [Binah] the last trumpet: for [the seventh angel sounded] the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our [Inner] Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as you know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord." - 1 Corinthians 15: 39-58
