A Lost Message From Jesus – Respect, Love and Cherish Women

April 21, 2014

I have been embarking on a new research project – this time more deeply into the life of Jesus, and more specifically into his life experiences, education, culture, and message. Piecing together the truth is difficult because little authoritative or first-hand information has survived the elements and decay of time, or the political manipulations of the last two thousand years. From the remaining source material, Jesus was clearly a remarkable man – truly one of a kind – and his message had authority and relevance that has transcended eons. Imagine that. Can we say the same of virtually any other learned person who has added to our body of knowledge since the beginning of time? Consider: Would you like to be treated by a medical doctor who was teaching at a medical university in 1776 – well before the advent of antibiotics or even the concept of washing one’s hands to prevent the spread of disease? Physics lessons from Newton himself might be an interesting experience, but it’s not likely to teach you anything that we actually know now about the way the universe truly functions. And of course the list goes on.
Jesus had many powerful messages – not just a singular message and far more than is published in the ‘approved’ doctrine of the Western world’s bible – and he was widely recognized as one of the most authoritative teachers, even in his own time when news traveled painfully slow; often via merchants on the backs of camels. For both political safety reasons and for effect on his audience, Jesus often taught by making comment on his observed surroundings; to show people that they could be better or their government or religious leaders should hold themselves to a higher standard and faithfully perform the sacred mission in which the people had entrusted them. While reading one of these “lost” accounts of Jesus, I was especially touched by one such impromptu sermon he gave after observing a man push aside an elderly woman so that he could be closer to hear this miraculous teacher speak. And Jesus said,
“Whosoever does not respect his mother – the most sacred being after his God – is unworthy of the name of son.
“Hearken to what I say to you: Respect women; for in her we see the mother of the universe, and all the truth of divine creation is to come through her.
“She is the fount of everything good and beautiful, and she is also the germ of life and death. Upon her men depends in all his existence, for she is his moral and natural support in his labors.
“In pain and suffering she brings you forth; in the sweat of her brow she watches over your growth, and until her death you cause her greatest anxieties. Bless her and adore her, for she is your only friend and support on earth.
“Respect her, defend her. In so doing you will gain for yourself her love; you will find favor before God, and for her sake many sins will be remitted to you.
“Love your wives and respect them, for they will be the mothers of tomorrow and later the grandmothers of a whole nation.”
“Be submissive to the wife; her love ennobles man, softens his hardened heart, tames the wild beast in him and changes it to a lamb.
“Wife and mother are the priceless treasures which God has given to you. They are the most beautiful ornaments of the universe, and from them will be born all who inhabit the world.
“Even as the Lord of Hosts separated the light from the darkness, and the dry land from the waters, so does woman possess the divine gift of calling forth out of man’s evil nature all the good that is in him.
“Therefore I say unto you, after God, to woman must belong your best thoughts, for she is the divine temple where you will most easily obtain perfect happiness.
“Draw from this temple your moral force. There you will forget your sorrows and your failures, and recover the love necessary to aid your fellow man.
“Suffer her not to be humiliated, for by humiliating her you humiliate yourselves, and lose the sentiment of love, without which nothing can exist here on earth.
“Protect your wife, that she may protect you – you and all your household. All that you do for your mother, your wives, for a widow, and for any other woman in distress, you will do for your God.”
These are amazing words from an amazing teacher who only sought to bring peace and betterment to His beloved peoples on earth.
