Aquarian Age Gospel of Jesus
Chapters 1 - 7
Birth and Early Life of Mary, Mother of Jesus
Palestine. Birth of Mary, Joachim's feast. Mary is blessed by the priests. His prophecy.
Mary abides in the temple. Is betrothed to Joseph.
AUGUSTUS Caesar reigned and Herod Antipas was ruler of Jerusalem.
2 Three provinces comprised the land of Palistine: Judea, and
Samaria, and Galilee.
3 Joachim was a master of the Jewish law, a man of wealth; he
lived in Nazareth of Galilee; and Anna, of the tribe of Judah,
was his wife.
4 To them was born a child, a goodly female child, and they
were glad; and Mary was the name they gave the child.
5 Joachim made a feast in honour of the child; but he invited
not the rich, the honoured and the great; he called the poor the
halt and the lame, the blind, and to each one he gave a gift of raiment,food or other
6 He said, The Lord has given me this wealth; I am his steward by his grace, and if
I give not to his children when in need, then he will make this wealth a curse.
7 Now, when the child was three years old her parents took her to Jerusalem, and
in the temple she received the blessings of the priests.
8 The high priest was a prophet and a seer, and when he saw the child he said,
9 Behold, this child will be the mother of an honoured prophet
and a master of the law; she shall abide within this holy temple of the Lord.
10 And Mary did abide within the temple of the Lord; and Hillel,
chief of the Sanhedrim, taught her all the precepts of Jews, and she delighted in the
law of God.
11 When Mary reached the age of womanhood she was betrothed to Joseph, son
of Jacob, and a carpenter of Nazareth.
12 And Joseph was an upright man, and a devoted Essene.
Birth and Infancy of the Harbinger, and of Jesus
Zacharias and Elizabeth. Prophetic messages of Gabriel to Zacharias, Elizabeth and
Mary. Birth of John. Prophecy of
NEAR Hebron in the hills of Judah, Zacharias and Elizabeth
2 They were devote and just, and every day they read the
Law, the Prophets and the Psalms which told of one to come,
strong to redeem; and they were waiting for the king.
3 Now, Zacharias was a priest, and in his turn he led the
temple service in Jerusalem.
4 It came to pass as Zacharias stood before the Lord and
burned the incense in the Holy Place, that Gabriel came and
stood before his face.
5 And Zacharias was afraid; he thought that some great evil
was about to come upon the Jews.
6 But Gabriel said, O man of God, fear not; I bring to you
and all the world, a message of good will, and peace on earth.
7 Behold, the Prince of Peace, the king you seek, will quickly
8 Your wife will bear to you a son, a holy son, of whom the
9 Behold, I send Elijah unto you again before the coming of the
Lord; and he will level down the hills and fill the valleys up,
and pave the way for him who shall redeem.
10 From the beginning of the age your son has borne the name of
John, the mercy of the Lord; his name is John.
11 He will be honoured in the sight of God, and he will drink no wine, and from his
birth he will be filled with Holy Breath.
12 And Gabriel stood before Elizabeth as she was in the silence
of her home, and told her all the words that he had said to Zacharias in Jerusalem.
13 When he had done the service of his course, the priest went home, and with
14 Five months passed by and Gabriel came to Mary in her home in Nazareth and
15 Hail Mary, hail! Once blessed in the name of God; twice blessed in the name of
Holy Breath; thrice blessed in the name of Christ; for you are worthy, and will bear a
son who shall be called Immanuel.
16 His name is Jesus, for he saves his people from their sins.
17 When Joseph's daily task was done he came, and Mary told him all the words that
Gabriel spoke to her, and they rejoiced; for they believed that he, the man of God, had
spoken words of truth.
18 And Mary went with haste to tell Elizabeth about the promises of Gabriel; together
19 And in the home of Zacharias and Elizabeth did Mary tarry ninety days; then she
returned to Nazareth.
20 To Zacharias and Elizabeth a son was born, and Zacharias said,
21 Most blessed be the name of God, for he has opened up the fount of blessings
for his people, Israel.
22 His promises are verified; for he has brought to pass the words which holy
prophets spoke in olden times.
23 And Zacharias looked upon infant John, and said,
24 You shall be called the prophet of the Holy One; and you will go before his face,
and will prepare his way.
25 And you will give a knowledge of salvation unto Israel; and you will preach the
gospel of repentance and the blotting out of sins.
26 Behold, for soon the Day Star from on high will visit us, to light the way for those
who sit within the darkness of the shadow-
land, and guide our ways to the feet of peace.
Birth of Jesus. Masters honour the child. The shepherds rejoice.
Zacharias and Elizabeth visit Mary. Jesus is circumcised.
THE time was nearly due for Jesus to be born, and Mary longed to see Elizabeth, and
she and Joseph turned their faces toward the Judean hills.
2 And when upon their way they came to Bethlehem the day was done, and they
must tarry for the night.
3 But Bethlehem was thronged with people going to Jerusalem; the inns and homes
were filled with guests, and Joseph and his wife could find no place to rest but in a
cave where animals were kept; and there they slept.
4 At midnight came a cry, a child is born in yonder cave among the beasts. And lo,
the promised son of man was born.
5 And strangers took the little one and wrapped him in the dainty robes that Mary had
prepared and laid him in a trough from which the beasts of burden fed.
6 Three persons clad in snowwhite robes came in and stood before the child and
7 All strength, all wisdom and all love be your, Immanuel.
8 Now, on the hills of Bethehem were many flocks of sheep with shepherds guarding
9 The shepherds were devout, were men of prayer, and they were waiting for a
strong deliverer to come.
10 And when the child of promise came, a man in snow-white robe appeared to
them, and they fell back in fear. The man stood forth and said,
11 Fear not! behold I bring you joyful news. At midnight in a cave in Bethehem was
born the prophet and the king that you have long been waiting for.
12 And then the shepherds all were glad; they felt that all the hills were filled with
messengers of light, who said,
13 All glory be to God on high; peace, peace on earth, good will to men.
14 And then the shepherds came with haste to Bethlehem and to the cave, that they
might see and honour him whom men had called Immanuel.
15 Now, when the morning came, a shepherdess whose home was near, prepared
a room for Mary, Joseph and the child; and here they tarried many days.
16 And Joseph sent a messenger in haste to Zacharias and Elizabeth to say, The
child is born in Bethlehem.
17 And Zacharias and Elizabeth took John and came to Bethlehem with words of
18 And Mary and Elizabeth recounted all the wonderous things that had transpired.
The people joined with them in praising God.
19 According to the custom of the Jews, the child was circumcised; and when they
asked, What will you call the child? the mother said, His name is Jesus, as the man of
Consecration of Jesus. Mary offers sacrifices. Simeon and Anna prophesy. Anna is
rebuked for worshipping the child. The family returns to Bethlehem.
NOW, Mary took her son, when he was forty days of age, up to the temple in
Jerusalem, and he was consecrated by the priest.
2 And then she offered purifying sacrifices for herself, according to the custom of the
Jews; a lamb and two young turtle doves.
3 A pious Jew named Simeon was in the temple serving God.
4 From early youth he had been looking for Immanuel to come, and he had prayed
to God that he might not depart until his eyes had seen Messiah in the flesh.
5 And when he saw the infant Jesus he rejoiced and said, I now am ready to depart
in peace, for I have seen the king.
6 And then he took the enfant in his arms and said, Behold, this child will bring a
sword upon my people, Israel, and all the world; but he will break the sword and then
the nations will learn war no more.
7 The master's cross I see upon the forehead of this child, and he will conquer by
8 And in the temple was a widow, four and eighty years of age, and she departed
not, but night and day she worshipped God.
9 And when she saw the infant Jesus she exclaimed, Behold Immanuel! Behold the
signet cross of the Messiah on his brow!
10 And then the woman knelt to worship him, as God with us, Immanuel; but one,
a master, clothed in white, appeared and said,
11 Good woman, stay; take heed to what you do; you may not worship man; this is
12 This child is man, the son of man, and worthy of all praise. You shall adore and
worship God; him only shall you serve.
13 The woman rose and bowed her head in thankfulness and worshipped God.
14 And Mary took the infant Jesus and returned to Bethlehem.
Three magian priests honour Jesus. Herod is alarmed. Calls a council of the Jews. Is
told that prophets had foretold the coming of a king. Herod resolves to kill the child.
Mary and Joseph take Jesus and flee into Egypt.
BEYOND the river Euphrates the magians lived; and they were wise, could read the
language of the stars, and they divined that one, a master soul, was born; they saw his
star above Jerusalem.
2 And there were three among the magian priests who longed to see the master of
the coming age; and they took costly gifts and hastened to the West in search of him,
the new-born king, that they might honour him.
3 And one took gold, the symbol of nobility; another myrrh, the symbol of dominion
and of power; gum-thus the other took, the symbol of the wisdom of the sage.
4 Now when the magians reached Jerusalem the people were amazed, and
wondered who they were and why they came.
5 And when they asked, Where is the child that has been born a king? the very
throne of Herod seemed to shake.
6 And Herod sent a courtier forth to bring the magians to his court.
7 And when they came they asked again, Where is the new born king? And then they
said, While yet beyond the Euphates we saw his star arise, and we have come to
8 And Herod blanched with fear. He thought, perhaps, the priests were plotting to
restore the kingdom of the Jews, and so he said within himself, I will know more about
this child that has been born a king.
9 And so he told the magian priests to tarry in the city for a while and he would tell
them all about the king.
10 He called in council all the Jewish masters of the law and asked, What have the
Jewish prophets said concerning such a one?
11 The Jewish masters answered him and said, The prophets long ago foretold that
one would come to rule the tribes of Israel; that this Messiah would be born in
12 They said, The prophet Micah wrote, O Bethlehem Judea, a little place among the
Judean hills, yet out of you will one come forth to rule my people, Israel; yea, one who
lived in olden times, in very ancient days.
13 Then Herod called the magian priests again and told them what the masters of
the Jewish law had said; and then he sent them on the way to Bethlehem.
14 He said, Go search, and if you find the child that has been born a king, return and
tell me all, that I may go and honour him.
15 The magians went their way and found the child with Mary in the shepherd's
16 They honoured him; bestowed upon him precious gifts and gave him gold, gum-
thus and myrrh.
17 These magian priests could read the hearts of men; they read the wickedness of
Herod's heart, and knew that he had sworn to kill the new born king.
18 And so they told the secret to the parents of the child, and bid them flee beyond
the reach of harm.
19 And then the priests went on their homeward way; they went not through
20 And Joseph took the infant Jesus and his mother in the night and fled to Egypt
land, and with Elihu and Salome in ancient Zoan they abode.
Herod learns of the supposed mission of John. The infants of Bethlehem are
massacred by Herod's order. Elizabeth escapes with John. Because Zacharias cannot
tell where his son is hidden, he is murdered. Herod dies.
NOW, when the magian priests did not return to tell him of the child that had been born
a king, King Herod was enraged.
2 And then his courtiers told him of another child in Bethlehem, one born to go before
and to prepare the people to receive the king.
3 This angered more and more the king; he called his guards and bid them go to
Bethlehem and slay the infant John, as well as Jesus who was born to be a king.
4 He said, Let no mistake be made, and that you may be sure to slay these
claimants to my throne, slay all the male children in the town not yet two years of age.
5 The guards went forth and did as Herod bade them do.
6 Elizabeth knew not that Herod sought to slay her son, and she and John were yet
in Bethlehem; but when she knew, she took the infant John and hastened to the hills.
7 The murderous guards were near; they pressed upon her hard; but then she knew
the secret caves in all the hills, and into one she ran and hid herself and John until the
guards were gone.
8 Their cruel task was done; the guards returned and told the story to the king.
9 They said, We know that we have slain the infant king; but John his harbinger, we
could not find.
10 The king was angry with his guards because they failed to slay the infant John;
He sent them to the tower in chains.
11 And other guards were sent to Zacharias, father of the harbinger, while he was
serving in the Holy Place, to say, The King demands that you shall tell where is your
12 But Zacharias did not know, and he replied, I am a minister of God, a servant in
the Holy Place; how could I know where they have taken him?
13 And when the guards returned and told the King what Zacharias said, he was
enraged and said,
14 My guards, go back and tell that wily priest that he is in my hands; that if he does
not tell the truth, does not reveal the hiding place of John, his son, then he shall die.
15 The guards went back and told the priest just what the king had said.
16 And Zacharias said, I can but give my life for truth; and if the king does shed my
blood the Lord will save my soul.
17 The guards again returned and told the king what Zacharias said.
18 Now, Zacharias stood before the alter in the Holy Place engaged in prayer.
19 A guard approached and with a dagger thrust him through; he fell and died before
the curtain of the sanctuary of the Lord.
20 And when the hour of salutation came, for Zacharias daily blessed the priests, he
did not come.
21 And after waiting long the priests went to the Holy Place and found the body of
22 And there was grief, deep grief, in all the land.
23 Now Herod sat upon his throne; he did not seem to move; his courtiers came; the
king was dead. HIs sons reigned in his stead.
Education of Mary and Elizabeth in Zoan
Archelaus reigns. Mary and Elizabeth with their sons are in Zoan and are taught by
Elihu and Salome. Elihu's introductory lesson. Tells of an interpreter.
THE son of Herod, Archelaus, reigned in Jerusalem. He was a selfish, cruel king; he
put to death all those who did not honour him.
2 He called in council all the wisest men and asked about the infant claimant to his
3 The council said that John and Jesus both were dead; then he was satisfied.
4 Now Joseph, Mary and their sons were down in Egypt in Zoan, and John was with
his mother in the Judean Hills.
5 Elihu and Salome sent messengers in haste to find Elizabeth and John. They found
them and they brought them to Zoan.
6 Now, Mary and Elizabeth were marvelling much because of their deliverance.
7 Elihu said, It is not strange; there are no happenings; law governs all events.
8 From olden times it was ordained that you should be with us, and in this sacred
school be taught.
9 Elihu and Salome took Mary and Elizabeth out to the sacred grove near by where
they were wont to teach.
10 Elihu said to Mary and Elizabeth, You may esteem yourself thrice blest, for you
are chosen mothers of long promised sons,
11 Who are ordained to lay in solid rock a sure foundation stone on which the temple
of the perfect man shall rest--a temple that shall never be destroyed.
12 We measure time by cycle ages, and the gate to every age we deem a mile stone
in the journey of the race.
13 An age has passed; the gate unto another age flies open at the touch of time.
This is the preparation age of soul, the kingdom of Immanuel, of God in man;
14 And these, your sons, will be the first to tell the news, and preach the gospel of
good will to men, and peace on earth.
15 A mighty work is theirs; for carnal men want not the light, they love the dark, and
when the light shines in the dark they comprehend it not.
16 We call these sons, Revealers of the Light; but they must have the light before
they can reveal the light.
17 And you must teach your sons, and set their souls on fire with love and holy zeal,
and make them concious of their missions to the sons of men.
18 Teach them that God and man are one; but that through carnal thoughts and
words and deeds, man tore himself away from God; debased himself.
19 Teach that the Holy Breath would make them one again, restoring harmony and
20 That naught can make them one but Love; that God so loved the world that he has
clothed his son in flesh that man may comprehend.
21 The only Saviour of the world is love, and Jesus, son of Mary, comes to manifest
that love to men.
22 Now, love cannot manifest until its way has been prepared, and naught can rend
the rocks and bring down lofty hills and fill the valleys up, amd thus prepare the way,
23 But purity in life men do not comprehend; and so, it, too, come in flesh.
24 And you, Elizabeth, are blest because your son is purity made flesh, and he shall
pave the way for love.
25 This age will comprehend but little of the works of Purity and Love; but not a word
is lost, for in the Book of God's Remembrance a registry is made of every thought, and
word, and deed;
26 And when the world is ready to receive, lo, God will sent a messenger to open up
the book and copy from its sacred pages all the messages of Purity and Love.
27 Then every man of earth will read the words of life in language of his native land,
and men will see the light, walk in the light and be the light.
28 And man again will be at one with God.
