The intriguing mystery of a stained glass window in Kilmore Church, Dervaig, on the Scottish Isle of Mull

This striking stained glass window shows a young man portrayed with the usual features attributed to Jesus with a halo above his head, holding hands with a woman without a halo. In iconography, a halo with a cross (as seen in the above stained glass window) uniquely symbolises Jesus the Christ. The woman can clearly be seen to be portrayed pregnant with her girdle painted below her abdomen rather than around her waist. The key to the identity of this woman is made plain by the gospel text which appears immediately below the pregnant woman. It reads: “Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her”. This statement, made by Christ himself, which directly relates to Mary Magdalene, sometimes referred to as Mary of Bethany, can be found in the Gospel of Luke, ch. 10, v. 42.  Read more

The Wave of the Future
The Spiritual Truth of the Light and Sound Teachings and the true Gospel of Jesus the Christ
Barry Dunford

In the ancient mystery schools there was always an inner and outer teaching, i. e. the esoteric and exoteric teaching. The innermost esoteric teaching was known as the Light and Sound – the inner sound or Word (Logos) of God. This esoteric corpus is clearly identifiable as the core of the mystery teachings in the Gospel attributed to St. John the Apostle. This Gospel commences “In the beginning was the Word” (Sound), and the writer then goes on to mention the Light, which is clearly secondary, as an outworking or effect of the primary Divine Cause which in Greek is called the Logos or Divine Word, a universal Sound Current which is at the heart of all creation and sustains all Life.  Read more
