Subject: On Mary..... the backstory


Okay..... i'm doing this from memory..... so a few of the details might be a bit fuzzy.

When Jesus was about 5, his family and protectors returned from egypt..... for the threat against the boy had passed.  Still it was thought that they should keep a low profile..... so it was decided to relocate the family up north in galilee.  His mother had a very dear cousin living up there..... and nazareth had a very strong essene community.  Mary's cousin was elizabeth...... and elizabeth was married to the local high priest, zacharias....... who also had strong essene sympathies. Zacharias had been murdered over a charge of blasphemy..... leaving elizabeth alone with their own 5 year old child, named john...... so elizabeth welcomed the return of family.

So Joseph settled the family in nazareth, and Jesus was raised with his dear cousin John....... and the family was cared for by a network of protectors.

During this youth..... besides his cousin, Jesus' best friend in all the world was lazurus.  They would play together, and help each other with chores, play tricks on the merchants and craftsmen at the market...... they would sleep over at each other's houses...... and were the best of close friends that are cemented by this childhood bond.

There were many children blessing the streets of nazareth...... and those years were a joyful time to be alive.  Lazurus had an older sister named martha..... and a young baby sister named mary....... this is the mary we are speaking of.

The 12th year of life is very important in the life of a jewish boy...... and this was no different for Jesus...... it was even moreso for Jesus.  Everybody knows the story about him discussing scripture with the teachers at the temple in Jerusalem.... but few know the elements which made that discussion possible.  First of all, months before the trip to jerusalem.... Jesus had been bar mitzvah'd.... which allowed him equal right to speak in the synagogue...... and he had been well trained through all of his years....... even his years in egypt were spent with very special teachers.

Following that twelfth year (the lost years) everything changed for the three good friends from nazareth...... Jesus, John, and Lazurus.

John was sent off to school in quamron...... home of the essene monastery and home of the true temple.  Jesus was to travel to syria and bagdag and india and tibet..... and other diverse places...... to increase his knowledge...... and learn the truth through diverse eyes.  Lazurus remained in nazareth..... taking on a trade.

Jesus went into the employ of his uncle joseph of arimethea...... who was a rather wealthy merchant...... who owned many caravans..... which happened to travel to all these diverse places...... imagine that!

As the years went by...... Jesus passed through or near nazareth every however few or many months..... and he would visit his mother and siblings.... and his father..... and always his dear friend lazarus.  And with each return visit.... he would notice how his friend's young sister was growing...... remember?  This is a story about mary.

Jesus saw john sparsely in these year..... only when their visits home coincided.  When he was 17, he made sure to be home for john's return having completed the essene school.  This was a big event..... and the whole community celebrated... this is when Jesus really started noticing the young 13 year old mary.

John announced that he was returning to quamron to join the monastery..... Jesus would not see john again for 13 more years.  John returned to quamron..... and Jesus embarked upon his longest journey yet..... to india and tibet..... to learn with the masters.  He returned home every few years.... and kept close with his friend lazarus.... and his little sis.

As he got older.... the visits home became less frequent..... after a while lazarus moved to bethany to be close to the work available in jerusalem..... martha went to live with him when their parents died..... and mary..... dear mary kinda dropped out of sight.

Jesus was 30 years old when he last returned from tibet.... upon his return, his sister informed him that John was in town.... that he was down at the river.... baptizing the people.  Jesus ran to meet him.

I am crying now..... for it is such a joyful meeting.....and well recorded in scripture.

And Jesus made his way to bethany as often as he could..... to see his dear friend lasarus..... and martha...... but nowhere to be found was little mary.

One day while in jerusalem....... Jesus came upon a big ruckus...... the men were going to stone the madame from the local bordello...... she had become the keeper of the secrets....... and used her persuation perhaps one too many times.  When Jesus approached...... he found a face that was still so familiar..... it was mary.

We know the story of the repentence..... and mary returned to bethany.... and lived with her brother, lazurus.... and sister martha.

Peace forever,
Amminadab
