Was JESUS a FREEMASON - YES - he tells us himself in the Bible
This journey takes us through CHURCHES of all denominations, CATHOLIC, ANGLICAN and UNITING CHURCHES. It continues on to Mosques and on to Synagogues and Temples.
The principles of FREEMASONRY are founded on the choosing of Abraham the Father of Judaism - ISLAM- CHRISTIANITY, to follow the MASONIC path of there being one Creator of the Universe.
For the past two decades the Life of JESUS has been put through the magnifying glass to try to interpret just who he was and what he stood for
A variety of books explain his family History - HIRAM KEY written by Knight & Lomas and more recently THE DA VINCI CODE written by Dan Brown
Various Films such as THE PASSION OF CHRIST and REVELLATION have recently been in the spotlight due to their controversial nature
Watch as JESUS is raised to that GRAND LODGE above.

Out of sheer curiosity, what do you guys think of this? I know it’s one of the ads on the side of the screen there, but I figure there must be people like me who mentally block out all the damned advertising on the internet. I haven’t read too much about this, but my first instinct is to say “Yeah, right.”.
I’m just curious to hear some thoughts and opinions on this.
Freemasons are explicitly instructed never to worship the Sun, Moon or Planets in the higher degrees of Freemasonry - The Royal Arch.
The Gnostic Movement is the synthesis movement of the new Age of Aquarius.
The Seven Schools of Yoga are present in Gnosis, but in a synthetical and fully practical form.
There is Tantric Hatha Yoga in Maithuna (Sexual Magic). There is practical Raja Yoga in the work with the chakras; there is Gnana Yoga in the mental tasks and disciplines we have been cultivating in secret for millions of years. We have Bhakti Yoga in our prayers and rituals; Laya Yoga in meditation and breathing exercises; Samadhi (Oneness of mind ) in our practical work with Maithuna and during deep meditation. We live the way of Karma Yoga in fair action, thought and feeling.
The secret science of the Sufis and dancing dervishes is present in Gnosticism, as well as the secret doctrines of Buddhism and Taoism. The Sacred Magic of the Nordics is also found here, as is the wisdom of Hermes, Buddha, Confucius, Mohammed, Quetzalcoatl, and so on. The Doctrine of Christ is Gnosis.
Jesus of Nazareth, is, in fact, the Synthetical Man. He was an Essenian who studied Hebrew knowledge; he had two rabbi masters during his childhood. Moreover, besides his profound knowledge of the Zohar, the Talmud and the Torah, he was an Egyptian Initiate, an Egyptian Mason, who studied in the Kefren pyramid. He is an Egyptian Hierophant, who also travelled to Chaldea, Persia, Europe, India and Tibet. These journeys of His were not pleasure tours, Jesus travelled for study purposes.....

I've checked out the website you're always advertising for. It is a stew made by combining a bunch of other religions and willfully misinterpreting various teachings and downright "making stuff up" in the grand Blavatsky tradition.
New Age stuff like that is always a hoot. It is sort of the reader's digest abridged version of world mystical systems. Jesus was a Jew (which the website hints around is not true.) but wait, he was also an Egyptian (thus a gnostic christian), a Buddhist, and a traveling salesman for the fuller brush company of glastonbury, England!
The purveyors are basically selling the old theosophy-mail-order-school line of thinking, kind of like AMORC,
that "hey, learning Hebrew and Heiroglyphics and Sanscrit and stuff is too durn much work--we'll do all the thinking for ya!
Surprised you didn't link to Madonna's Ka-bolla website or something. Hey, why not?/???
"Much has been stated about the Hierophant Jesus, however, the fact is that nobody knows his personal biography. The tendency to castrate the Hierophant Jesus exists. The Christian sects depict an infrasexual Jesus, effeminate, weak; yet at times angry, like a whimsical woman. Naturally, all of this is absurd. The fact is that nobody knows the personal life of Jesus, because we do not have his biography. Only with the faculties of objective clairvoyance can we study the life of Jesus in the Akasic Records of Nature... We know the life of the Great Master and we know that Jesus was really a complete man in the fullest sense of the word. Jesus had a priestess wife, because he was not an infrasexual. The wife of Jesus was evidently a complete Lady Adept, endowed with great secret powers. Jesus travelled through Europe and was a member of a Mediterranean Mystery School. Jesus studied in Egypt and practised Sexual Magic with his priestess inside one of the pyramids. That is how he recapitulated the initiations and later achieved the Venustic Initiation. Jesus travelled through Persia, India, etc. Thus, the Great Master was a Master in the most complete sense of the word. Jesus lived the drama of the Passion; nonetheless, he was not the only one who has lived it. Prior to him, some Initiates like Hermes, Quetzalcoatl, Krishna, Orpheus, Buddha etc., lived it. After Him, a few others have lived it. The drama of the Passion is cosmic. Jesus was the son of a Roman soldier and a Hebrew woman. The Great Hierophant was of medium stature and with fair skin, lightly tanned by the rays of the Sun. The Great Master had black hair and a beard of the same color. His eyes were like two ineffable nights. The word Nazarene comes from nazar, meaning “a man with a straight nose.” Jesus did not have the hooked, Jewish type of nose. The Great Master had a straight nose. This is typical of the white European race. Jesus was only Jewish on the side of the Hebrew Mary; however, on his father’s side he was of the white Celtic race. His father was a Roman soldier. The priestess wife of the Master Jesus was also of white race and had great esoteric powers, as she demonstrated when travelling with the Nazarene through the countries of the Mediterranean in the lands of Europe. Jesus was a complete man. Jesus was not the castrated one who many religions depicted. Jesus followed the Path of the Perfect Matrimony. Jesus formed the Christ within himself by practising Sexual Magic with his wife. What we are stating will shock fanatics. Nevertheless, when scientists have the Akasic records of nature in their power, then these people will see that we were right, because they will be able to see for themselves the life of Jesus by means of ultramodern television (it does not matter what name will be given to those devices in that age)." - from The Perfect Matrimony

Matthew refers to Jesus as "ho tou tektonos uios" which is usually rendered as "son of a carpenter."
But "tektonos" is literally a builder, with stone being the implied medium. It is where we get our term for the study of how layers of rock are built up within the earth: tectonics. The word did naturally imply woodworking, since so much wood had to be used to convey the stones to the worksite and then raise them into their places.
So was Jesus then the son of a stonecutter? a mason?

It is not clear to me how Jesus is a part of this concept, as Christianity is not the abiding faith of Masonry, I have a problem with him claiming that throne.
I like to keep my Faith and my masonry seperate and distinct.
That way I can be a Christian and have no problem with anything within Freemasonry.
Jesus has been named the top black icon by the New Nation newspaper. Their assertion that Jesus was black has raised eyebrows in some quarters - so what colour was he? Just as no one will ever produce proof for the existence of God, the question of Jesus's colour may always be a matter for personal belief. Was he white, white-ish, olive-skinned, swarthy, dark-skinned or black? There are people who believe he was any one of those shades, but there seem to be only two things about the debate that can be said with any degree of certainty.
First - if the past 2,000 years of Western art were the judge, Jesus would be white, handsome, probably with long hair and an ethereal glow.
Second - it can almost certainly be said that Jesus would not have been white. His hair was also probably cut short.

Being monotheistic is one criterion that Christ would meet now if he petitioned to be a Freemason. I would probably vote him in OK, so long as he promised not to levitate and disrupt meetings, or cast out any tax collectors that were there on masonic business. He'd be great for feeding large refectories where the Lodge is on a shoestring budget, too.

A little off topic, but in the same vein, I am currently engaged in somewhat of a debate with a dear friend of mine about the ethnicity of Jesus Christ. I believe that Jesus (and indeed the Isrealite race) was a caucasian.

Firstus, there is no such thing as an "Israelite race." However, the people who live in the Mediterranean area are all Caucasians. This can be proven by genetic typing and blood typing and a whole boatload of other things.

As we know from history, Jesus was Aramaic...

I was of the understanding that the Freemasons, as a group, were largely founded during the dark ages, originally from (who'd have guessed) stonemasons and other joiners, etc. To say Jesus was a Freemason is pretty much like trying to claim he was a boy scout as a kid.... The organization came way after his death....
