Neil Douglas-Klotz on The Aramaic Jesus


Neil Douglas-Klotz on The Aramaic Jesus

July 28, 2021– “This is, what I would say, the beauty of the approach that I have used is common when looking at the teachings in Semitic language of various prophets. It is common among Sufis today, it is common among Jewish mystics, that when you look at the words of a prophet or a mystic or a teacher in the Semitic languages, the language itself allows you to look at it in different ways, from several different points of view, several different levels … And I think that’s the richness of this, that it doesn’t it has to be fixed as a particular translation, or a particular meaning. It doesn’t have to be the whole and the ending or the only meaning. So that’s what I’ve really tried to do in my work, for example my first book, Prayers of the Cosmos, [I translated] each line of the Our Father, of the Jesus prayer, five or six different ways. So these are possibilities. No translation is the final translation. But there is a wealth. There is a breadth there. There is a depth there where people can hear what they need to hear and still connect, you could say, through breathing, through spirit to the person who said the words. “Tami Simon speaks with Neil Douglas-Klotz , a world-renowned scholar in religious studies, spirituality, and psychology, and the author of ‘Prayers from the Cosmos: Reflections on the Original Meaning of Jesus’ Words’ and’ The Hidden Gospel: Decoding the Spiritual Message of the Aramaic Jesus. ‘ episode, Tami talks to Neil about body prayers and how to appreciate the multiple interpretations of the biblical text.184 reads)
