Description

Mary the Mother © Jo Jayson 2012

– Mary (Greek) Maryam/Miriam (Aramaic Hebrew of the 1st Century AD) . Mary was an ordinary Israelite Jewish girl from Nazareth in the Galilee. What we know of her from sacred texts, is her devoutness to her Jewish traditions of her family at that time.
The Roman Catholic Dogma of The Immaculate Conception, is the belief in the moment when Mary herself was conceived in the womb of her mother Anne, and was cleared and free of all original sin, leaving her pure and of sanctified grace. This is not universally believed throughout all corners of Christianity, but what is traditionally believed in the Christian Church is that Mary was a Virgin, and that her miraculous conception of her son Yeshua, while remaining a virgin, was proof that Jesus was conceived via the planting of Divine seed into Mary’s Immaculate womb.
Many Gnostics and scholars of mystical texts and those that have looked beyond the boundaries of Christianity, believe very much that Mary conceived 7 children, including Yeshua, and that she was betrothed and married to Joseph, and was for all intent and purposes the quintessential Jewish wife and mother. The story of Yeshua and his suffering, made it easy for others to empathize with his Mother’s subsequent suffering, and she therefore became, within the Roman Catholic Church and doctrines…the symbol, the face and the character of the Divine Mother. The Doctrine of her Assumption , and her claim to the Throne of Heaven, offered her the name of Queen of Heaven, Queen of the Angels, and Divine Mother of God. What is interesting is that over time, and centuries she has taken on the role of many pagan Mother Goddesses before Patriarchal religion was predominant in the world.
In much research , connections with what we know as The Shekinah (Feminine Face of God) and The Sophia ( Feminine Divine Wisdom) are incredibly intertwined with Mary the Mother . She slowly took on the role as the Holy Spirit, the Divine Mother of All , realms and attributes also seen in Isis, Asherea, Innana, and many other Mother Goddess archetypes of different cultures of our time. The Dove, the Lily, the concept of her Wisdom, the Throne on which she sits, all originate from the idea of The Shekinah and can be seen in all preceding Mother Goddesses before patriarchal religions became the norm.
Many believe that Mary was herself a Priestess of Isis/Ashera and taught Yeshua along with Mary Magdalene the lessons of the Isis School of Mysteries. Many images of Isis and her son Horus suckling at her breast are widely thought of as the very first Madonna and child and as we know became the most beloved representation of Mary and her son. There is a interesting relationship between Mary and the Angelic realm, not only that she is given the title Queen of Angels, but her close connection and association with Archangel Metatron, (Enoch) who is thought of as the highest of Angels and the Celestial Scribe. Close association also with the Chinese Ancient Goddess of Compassion and Mercy, Quan Yin, is also very clear, and the symbolism of the lotus/lily and serpent/Dragon make this association even stronger.
Whatever our beliefs of this incredible mother figure of compassion and love, and whatever end of the story we wish to hold on to, without doubt, this Lady Mary has become to so many “a woman clocked with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars above her head “ Revelations 12:1
