Judaism and Greek Drama in The Great Pagan Mysteries of the INITIATED

Think only, the Greeks and Romans celebrated “the MYSTERIES?”

I must be INITIATED, ere I die!!
—Aristophanes, Eirene (“Peace” Comedy).

The INITIATED, are the “just.”—Aristophanes.

“Open your ears, O ye Initiated, and receive the most sacred mysteries!”—Philo Judaeus of Alexandria, The Works of Philo Judaeus: Allegorical Interpretations, III.

‘I show you a MYSTERY—the ‘WISDOM of God’ in a Mystery—THE HIDDEN WISDOM!’

“But we speak the WISDOM of God in a mystery, even
THE HIDDEN WISDOM, which God ordained before the world unto our glory.” (1 Corinthians 2:7)

“Moses will be summoned upwards, the Steward and Guardian of the ‘Sacred Mysteries of the living God’.”—Philo Judaeus of Alexandria.

“If they hear not Moses and the Prophets, neither will they be persuaded if one rose from the dead.” (Luke 16:31)

A brave SOUL steps forth, and speaks: —

WASH me thoroughly from mine iniquity,
And cleanse me from my sin.” (Psalms, 51:2)

Utters the STUDENT

“This is the gate of Iao,
Let the Zadakim (the Just, the INITIATED, THE PRIESTS) enter through it.” (Psalm, 118:19, 20)

Says the priest.

“Many shall be purified and made CLEAN and tried.” (Daniel, 7:10)

“Al (El) is terrible in the great SOD (assembly, MYSTERIES) of the Kedeshim (the priests, the holy, the INITIATED).” (Psalm, 89:8)

“And his Sōd (arcanum, MYSTERIES) are for the Isarim (the GOOD, the Initiated).” (Proverbs, 3:32)

“We have together made sweet the SOD (Mysteries);
In the house of the Alahim we have walked with the THRONG.” (Psalm, 55:14)

Foreseeing the BLESSINGS of the ELYSIAN FIELDS, then meets, the INITIATED, the end of the holy drama; final apocalypse (INITIATORY PURIFICATION), ἐποπτεία, epopteia. Then, the Chorus lapses into silence.

“INITIATED into the most blessed of all MYSTERIES,
being ourselves PURE (Chaste).”—Plato, Phaedrus.

“Constantly perfecting himself in perfect MYSTERIES, a man alone becomes truly perfect.”—Plato, Phaedrus.

“I would advise all in general that they would take into serious consideration the true and genuine ends of knowledge; that they seek it not either for pleasure or contention, or contempt of others, or for profit, or for fame, or for honour and promotion, or such-like adulterate or inferior ends; but for merit and emolument of life, that they may regulate and perfect the same in charity.”—SIR FRANCIS BACON, Advancement of Learning, preface, 1674 edition.
