John the Baptist who became Jesus the Christ

For two thousand years John the Baptist has been seen as the one who first predicted the coming of the Messiah and then recognized Jesus as “the Lamb of God” at his baptism in the Jordan River.
John the Baptist, however, was not merely the herald of Jesus. He was Jesus. He became a Christos, an anointed one, after his process of God-realization, symbolized by his baptism in the Jordan.

He became the very Messiah for whom the Jews had waited so long. But this Redeemer was expected to fulfill a long list of prophesies that had been penned down by ancient prophets. John the Baptist did not correspond to these prophesies. The evangelists, therefore, gave him posthumously a new name and a new identity, one that referred to a character from the Old Testament: Joshua son of Nun, which translated liberally, means Son of God.

This book shows how this volatile concept is covertly woven into the fabric of the gospel stories — for “those who have ears and want to hear.” And when we unravel this grand secret, we also find solutions to many other inexplicable Biblical mysteries. The reader will discover the true identity of the enigmatic Manna, which God caused to come from heaven to sustain the Israelites on their forty year trek through the wilderness. The rather unbelievable story of Jonah, who emerged alive and well after three days in the belly of a great fish, will be clarified. And we’ll learn why the disciples of Jesus were told to cast their fishing net on the right side of their boats. And much more!

Through the ages there has always been a small group of initiated who guarded the secret that John the Baptist was Jesus. This book contains many paintings of old masters such as Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael and Correggio, in which this knowledge is secretly expressed.

About the author

Anne-Marie Wegh writes books about spirituality. She specializes in the symbolic imagery of the Bible. Through the centuries, much of the symbolic meaning of the Bible has been lost in translation. Her mission is to expose the deeper layer of the Bible and to share this with her readers.

Many of the Bible stories center on a process of spiritual rebirth which eastern traditions call kundalini awakening. Anne-Marie combines her insights into the deeper layers of the Bible with firsthand knowledge about this spiritual path of transformation.

In her own words:

The Bible can be regarded in several distinct ways. Many readers prefer to take the stories of the Bible literal and aim to live their lives according to the example of Jesus and the instructions he left us. Others see the Bible as a wholly human product and study it scientifically and anthropologically, or admire it as the great depository of narrative archetypes that still carries artistic expressions today. Many, however, have abandoned the Bible and seek solace in Far Eastern traditions.

I want to show you an additional and exiting way to look at the Bible. In my books you will discover amazing parallels between the stories of the Bible and the esoteric principles of other spiritual traditions. Hidden in gruesome stories about war, slavery and animal sacrifice, we find a universal roadmap to self-actualization and spiritual awakening.

The deeper layers of the Bible rise to the surface when we review the figurative and symbolic qualities of the Biblical stories. They teach us how we can realize the Kingdom of God. Not after death, somewhere in another dimension, but here and now on earth, within ourselves; how we can make of ourselves a temple for God to live in.

‘In this book 25 paintings by famous painters like Da Vinci, Michelangelo. Raphael and Correggio in which they showed that John the Baptist was Jesus!’

Johannes pulls out his camel-haired garment and puts on the clothes of Jesus (red cloak). The mountain path up, which is emphasized by the loose stones, represents the (narrow) road to God, which John has traveled.

John the Babtist, by Bernardo Strozzi, 1620.

John holds the Ecce Agnus Dei banner (see the Lamb of God) in his hand and points to himself instead of Jesus.

Boekbespreking

Met haar derde boek dat over Johannes de Doper gaat die Jezus de Christus werd slaat Anne-Marie wederom de spijker op de kop. Religieuze verhalen zijn mythen die een ander verhaal vertellen in symbolen taal. En deze mythen moet je beleven en ondergaan door af te dalen in de onderwereld respectievelijk het onbewuste. Wat zich dan afspeelt is de oversteek van het profane naar het sacrale, waardoor de religieuze of spirituele mens kan doorstoten tot het goddelijke wat in ieders ziel in oorsprong aanwezig is.

Met de bijbel als handleiding neemt Anne-Marie ons mee op weg naar dit spiritueel ontwaken om het “Koninkrijk van God” in ons te realiseren. Hoe kunnen wij van onszelf een tempel maken van God om in te wonen. En is dit niet toevallig ook wat wij als Soefi’s willen bereiken!

Geïnspireerd door het gnostieke christendom en de wijsheid van het oosten laat zij ons kennis maken met het Hieros Gamos, het heilig huwelijk, waarin de vereniging van de mens met de Schepper plaats vindt. Na dit innerlijk huwelijk wordt het Goddelijk kind – het Christuskind – in onze ziel geboren. In christelijke termen heet dit wedergeboorte, verrijzenis of opstanding. De werkzame, Goddelijke kracht in dit proces van spirituele wedergeboorte wordt in oosterse tradities kundalini-shakti genoemd; het nieuwe testament noemt dit de Heilige Geest.

Anne-Marie laat ons via velerlei teksten in de bijbel zien dat de transformatie van Johannes naar Jezus via dit kundalini-ontwaken plaats vindt. Werkelijk een subliem voorbeeld van zelftransformatie, dat alleen verstaan kan worden door het hart, want het hart is immers een intelligentie die de ratio te boven gaat, een weten dat op een onbewust niveau opereert. Idem dito geldt dit ook voor haar verhaal over de profeet Elia en de vis als symbool voor Jezus.

Met de vele prachtige foto’s van de schilderijen van oude meesters als Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Rafaël en Corregio – die intuïtief wisten dat Johannes de Doper Jezus was – is dit boek niet alleen in kwaliteit en inhoud toegenomen, maar ook geschikt gemaakt om cadeau te geven aan uw dierbare naasten.

What readers say

I was especially impressed with your kundalini teachings and connections found within the Bible. I believe this is how we can Unite Western and Eastern religious views by finding the common ground we share. Also the sections on Elijah and Moses both being succeeded by Elisha and Joshua, and this is why they appear to Jesus on the mountain of Transfiguration was just brilliant. I truly hope your books sell so the world can benefit from your insights and findings. Best of luck to you. And Thanks for your excellent work.

I am not religious, but despite having little knowledge of the bible (or perhaps because of it!) it was great fun reading. It seems to be very compelling evidence that Nazareth was not a town at the time of Jesus’s birth and that Nazeraios can be translated as being one who consecrates–therefore that both Jesus and John both (one and the same?) were baptists and enlightened.

Most interesting was just how many Kundalini metaphors you have found in stories throughout both new and old testaments. I think you have certainly made your case 100 fold. I especially love the Kundalini “translations” of the stories of Jonah and Manna from heaven. All of this is really fascinating. It always seemed to me that ALL religious founders: Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha, Joseph Smith, etc. were all kundalini activated. Your book rather solidifies this for me.

Maybe your book can open some eyes to other, less literal interpretations of the bible. Unfortunately, Ramana Marharshi’s statement of “Each one sees his own Self only, always and everywhere. He finds the world and God according to what he is” probably applies also to the reading of the bible.
