Thanks for the link, it was a good read. I am just wondering why Purucher didn't mention the Sambhogakaya - the Middle Realm of the Triple Realms of the Mahayana which is the Realm of the Bodhisattva ,the other being the Nirmanakaya (which can be the Physical or the Subtle or both intregral) and the Dharma Realm. Maybe he did and Pratt just didn't mention. Also The Teacher of Rightiousness or the Righteous Fellow who I always read was Melchilzidek as in the appearance of the same to Lot at Sodom predating the Jesu references. There are limitations once the Bodhisattva has irrevocably taken residence of the Sambhoga Realm. The Visica Piscis symbol is also a part of the Gnostic Graphic i sent to you a few years back and is also featured with the "Agape" state I mentioned earlier. I quite enjoyed Mr. Pratts paper.

Who Was the Real Jesus?
by David Pratt
The story of Jesus as presented in the four gospels of the New
Testament is essentially a piece of fiction. There are no authentic
references to such a figure in the works of any historians of the
early 1st century CE (common era). The pre-gospel writings of the
early Christians also make no reference to the life and teachings of
a recent historical Jesus. Paul, for instance, was supposedly Jesus'
contemporary, yet he never claimed to have met him in the flesh or to
have met anyone else who had done so; he encountered him only in
visions, as a spiritual being. The Christian groups of the 1st
century CE held extremely diverse theological views, and this would
be hard to explain if they were the followers of a single, recent
teacher. Remarkably, they showed no interest in the holy sites and
relics associated with Jesus' alleged earthly career; it was not
until the 4th century that pieces of the 'true cross' began to
surface, and that the first shrine was set up on the supposed mount
of Jesus' death.
