This book The Secret Truth of Jesus reveals the hidden truth of Jesus' teachings, and thereby can fully decode the Da Vinci's piece of art. The Da Vinci Code indirectly shows Jesus' secret doctrine of eternal life. By nature and by intention, the truth of Jesus' teachings must be kept hidden, so that only "the true seekers" could be found and "the Secret Goddess" could be maintained. The Father (Originator) Creator is Dualistic Parent. "He" is dynamic and also static. His Static Counterpart is the so-called "Secret Goddess". God possess Dynamic Power and Static Virtue...
Shortly before being crucified on the Cross as the end of his Holy Mission, Jesus* declared to his disciples: “I am the way, the truth, and the life**: no one comes to the Father, unless by me.”1 And to Roman governor Pontius Pilate he said: “…To this end I was born, and for this cause I came into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Every one of the truth hears my voice.”2
The Joyous News of Salvation – the way to God by the truth of life – brought to humankind by Jesus was written in the four canonical Gospels according to four Saints of the 1st century: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Among these four Saints, only Matthew (Levi), a tax collector, and John, a fisherman,were directly-chosen disciples of Jesus. Naturally, therefore, Matthew Gospel and John Gospel should be valued as the primary sources in studying Jesus’ teachings of God’s Salvation.
* Yeshua (in Aramaic, the old Semitic language of Jesus), the Jewish prophet and spiritual teacher, who is honored by the Christians and the Islamists as Christ or Messiah, the Savior ordained (“anointed”) and sent to humans by God.
** The way, the truth, and the life are the terms used by Jesus to express God. Love is another intrinsic nature of God (1 John 4:16), thus these three include the sympathetic traits of tender but strong affection such as compassion, mercy, forgiveness...
Matthew version openly, yet summarily as a synopsis (Chapter 5, 6, and 7 of the Gospel) shows Jesus’ God-given Commandments of Salvation to all regardless of whom, while John version does not, except only ambiguous statements and minor commandments that just indicate there are other important commandments13. Thus, keeping Jesus’ cryptically-arousing method of searching to find and gather14 God-chosen people (that were “lost” because of sinning), Saint John would teach15 the heavenly teachings of Jesus to only the seekers of God’s Salvation; one would have to be his true follower (disciple) before learning the secret Truth of Jesus.
Jesus’ intriguing conversation with the Samaritan woman at Jacob’s well clearly shows his will of teaching(“giving”*) of eternal life (Salvation) only upon serious request16 of the believer. And what had Jesus taught the Samaritans in 2 days that many of them believed that “he indeed is the true Savior of the world”17?Of course Saint John knew.
As stated above, the obscure Gospel from John was issued after AD 80, at least 20 years after (instead before) the appearance of the three summarily-teaching Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke). And being seemingly faith-based due to its crypticness, it must be used with caution18, otherwise it would cause a wondering and wavering bewilderment (at-a-loss puzzlement) among believers toward Jesus’ teachings of Salvation, where, according to Saint Matthew, Salvation (eternal life in God’s Kingdom) comes [not from faith alone but] from faithful learning to live by God-commanded righteousness19, the truth of life**.
* Note the future tense of the verb “to give” in these sayings of Jesus.
Saint John says that when the Savior Jesus was asked by the crowd (general followers) what they have to do so they might work “the work of God for the food of eternal life”, he [bluntly] answered them: “…believe on the one (him) whom God (he) has sent…”20 Jesus later repeated the half-hidden message, calling: “Truly, truly, I say to you, the person that believes on me has everlasting life.”21
“Believe on him” about what, and how, Jesus would not readily tell the public. He confidently said that if any of them was seriously seeking God, he or she would be led22by the Spirit of God to him [to learn].*
The Savior Jesus told his disciples: “…the words that I speak to you, they are spirit and they are life…”49 “If you keep following (continue in) my word, then you are my disciples indeed, and you surely will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”50 Thus, it is not necessarily the individual of Jesus or his holy power, but the truth of his word of life51 known by Heaven-given Revelation (Insight) after some time of faithful practicing that saves the followers by delivering (liberating) them from life-destructive sinning that corrupt (degrade) their spirit. Jesus has saved his true followers by teaching them the way how to free themselves from “slavery of sin”52 that causes spiritual death.
Again, to find God seekers, beside wise sayings58(including allegorical metaphors) and parables59,Jesus has also preached the life truth of God in a gnomic way*: “Truly, truly, I say to you: If a person keeps my saying, he [or she] surely will never see death.”60 Which saying? It was bluntly truthful, yet vaguely incomplete statement that would arouse only the curiosity of interested listeners.
“A new commandment I give to you: That you love one another.”68
Then, where are the old ones?
“Keep my commandments if you love me”69.
But what are they?
Jesus says: “The one who has my commandments and keeps them is the one that loves me, and the one that loves me surely will be loved by my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.”70
Chapter 1 Jesus the Savior offered* by God
1 The human Son of God
1:1 Here is the beginning of the Joyous News** of Jesus the Messiah (Christ), the Savior Son of God1, God’s Word of life2 in the Creation of Heaven-and-Earth system.3
1:2 Life was in him, and his [godly] life was the light for mankind.4
1:3 He was the true light that [would] enlighten every human born into the world.5
1:4 And the Light [Jesus] shined in darkness*** [evil], but the darkness [sinners] did not understand him6; he came to his own people, and they did not receive him.7
1:5 But from his fullness of [God’s] grace and truth, [through learning] his disciples all have received8 [the graceful truth]; he “gave them the [spiritual] power”**** to become the children of God9,
1:6 because the Law of God was given by Moses, but the grace and truth [of God] came by Jesus.10
* Given (Review Introduction; John 3:16). Jesus said God has sanctified and sent him (John 10:33-38).
Chapter 6 The Secret Truth of Jesus: Twelve Commandments of Salvation
(JESUS’ IRON LAW: THE MAIN CONTENTS OF “THE HIDDEN CUP OF ETERNAL LIFE”)
Jesus’Commandments are God’s Commandments of Salvation because they came from God to save humans from spiritual death caused by own sins (unrighteous violations against God’s Law of life). Jesus has said: “I have come [like] a light into the world, [so] that whoever believes on* me should not abide in darkness [evil]. And if anyone hears my words, and does not believe, I don’t judge him [or her]: because I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. The person that rejects me, and does not receive my words, has one that judges him [or her]: the word that I have spoken, surely will itself judge him [or her] in the last day**. Because I have not spoken by myself, but [God] the Father that sent me, he gave me a Commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. And I know that his Commandment is everlasting life: therefore, whatsoever I speak, I speak just like the Father said so to me.”1
The Holy Spirit (God) that dwells in Jesus’ “heart” had told him the least Commandments of Righteousness2, so that he could teach them to his disciples to help them fulfilling the moral requirements to be saved and have eternal life.
6.1 JESUS’ OBJECT LESSONS
In AD 30 (the 1st century of our Common Era), God sent his Son Jesus to teach humans his New Commandments* to save them, because the Jews at that time, like many people today who don’t attempt to obey Jesus, had all violated (sinned against) God’s Law** given through Moses.3 Jesus told the sinners about this compliance (obedience) failure: “Did not Moses give you the Law, and yet none of you keep the Law?”4 ...
The Jews most had broken God’s Old Law given through Moses because, as said before, Moses’ and other prophets’ God-given Commandments (i.e. the Ten Commandments and others) are only subject matters, and to them, without the “How to” object lessons, were too hard to keep (obey), even to Jesus’ disciples per Saint Peter’s statement6. Only Jesus the Savior Son of God could provide them the solution: The way7.
6.23 JESUS’ PARADOXICAL TEACHINGS
The opposite effects of “feminine Negativity” and “masculine Positivity” in Jesus’ teachings are discreetly encoded232 in the famous painting of Leonardo da Vinci: “The Last Supper”. The contrary color contrast and transposition of the robes of Jesus and John*** intriguingly but affirmatively indicates that the obvious V shape in the art, showing “the union separation” of Jesus & John, should mean Versus (Against or As opposed to one another like Jesus’ palm-up left hand and palm-down right hand on the dinner table that St. Peter amazingly looked at while Jesus was explaining the Truth). The much less obvious M shape**** should mean Matthew (rather than Mark or Mary Magdalene), hinting the paradoxical teachings of Jesus in this Synoptic Gospel. Philip’s Gnostic Gospel cryptically reveals this dualistic truth.233

6.26 THE SECRET TRUTH OF JESUS IN THE LAST SUPPER
In the privacy252 of the Last Supper, [Jesus reviewed to those who had asked him to know and revealed to those who had not, the secret Truth – the Holy Grail that gives eternal life-] although they all then had learned from him the 12 least Commandments of Salvation:
[He has taught them to behave like the serving Sun of God that is the central Lord of all heavenly hosts around. ... “If by God, on the horizontal plane, positive Spring counteracts to balance negative Fall then it means: The warm months of Spring, say, January, February, and March, counterbalance the cool months of Fall,July, August, and September, and vice versa.]
[Jesus continued to reveal God’s Truth of life to make his disciples fully understand the dualistic Commandments he has given them: “In the same way, on vertical plane, if positive Summer counteracts to balance negative Winter then it means the hot months of Summer, April, May, and June, counterbalance the cold months of Winter, October, November, and December, and vice versa.]
This Positive Commandment #1 on serious fellowship (brotherly love) is dualistically balanced by the Negative Commandment #7 on subtle charity (benevolent love), as also mentioned by Saint Peter374. ...
This Positive Commandment #2of no lusting (no hidden sexual desire) is counter-balanced by the Negative Commandment #8of secret praying(hidden needful asking). ...
This Negative Commandment #10of Fasting in discreet disguiseis counterbalanced by the Positive Commandment #4of Communicating in simple honesty.
This Negative Commandment #11 of quietly storing (keeping) Heavenly goodnessis antagonistically complemented by the Positive Commandment #5 of openly enduring (tolerating) earthly evil.
