Place me as a seal upon your heart, for love is as strong as death (Song of Songs)
“Jesus said unto her: I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?” She said unto him, “Yes Lord: I believe, that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who is coming into the world.”
In the beginning and always, conscious being which is Word articulates a world: ‘Let there be light, and there was light’. (Genesis 1.3) Biblically The Christ is the eternal cosmic ‘uncreated light’ at the heart of all universes and our world. It is the unbearable lightness of being of all Life and has become human. This is the realisation of the One who is Christ Jesus so that you might know that you too are That. “For God who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, has shined in our hearts, to give the light of consciousness of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ”. 2 Corinthians 4.6
This is at the heart of the mystery of the death of Jesus on the Cross in Jerusalem over 2000 years ago and his resurrection as the ‘light of the world’.
This was witnessed by Mary Magdalene whom Jesus commissioned as the Apostle to the Apostles to attest to his resurrection: Yeshua said to her, “Miryam”. She turned and overcome with joy said to him,”Rabbouni”. Yeshua said to her, “Miryam, do not hold to me for I am not of the flesh, yet neither am I one with the Spirit. But rather go to my disciples and tell them you have seen me so that all may know that my words are true and that anyone who should choose to believe them and keep to my commandments will follow me on their last day………Only from the truth I tell you, those amongst you who understand and believe his words will not know death. I am Miryam called the Migdalah, the Beloved Companion”. From: ’The Gospel of the Beloved Companion’ translated by Jehanne de Quillan.

Six days before the Pesach, Yeshua came to Bethany. Then Miryam, the Beloved Companion took a jar of oil of pure and expensive spikenard and poured it upon the head of Yeshua and anointed him and the house was full of the sweet fragrance of the ointment. Yeshua said: “ She has anointed me for what I am come to do and done what she is appointed to do ……..whenever they speak of me what she has done will also be told in memory of her.
