Prophetesses in the Jewish world

In the Jewish world, there have been prophetesses consulted by the priests. Among these, have remained renowned Deborah and Hulda. The latter (Hebr. Huldâh) lived to the northeast of Jerusalem, in a new district (2Kin. 22, 14; 2Chr. 34, 22). At the time of King Josiah (638-609 B. C.), she was consulted by a commission of priests about the recovery of the “Law of the Lord” in the Temple. This commission went to Hulda to hear the answer of God. The prophetess confirmed the authenticity of the text that had been found. She predicted a suitable reward for the reforming zeal of King Josiah, and grave threats to who did not conform to it. The episode was decisive for the Jewish religion, and happened in 621 B. C., 18th year of Josiah’s reign. No less important was Deborah, also a prophetess, poetess and judge, heroine, wife of Lapidoth; she dwelt at Rama and Bethel, to the north of Jerusalem, in the land of the tribe of Ephraim. According to the Bible translated by the Seventy and to the Vulgate, Debbora or Débhôrah means “bee”. Because of her authority as a prophet, she sat under a palm tree, and to her had recourse the priests and the people of Israel (Judges, IV, 1-51).
To be a prophet one must have special gifts, because the Holy Spirit cannot make use of just anybody.
The four daughters of Philip, one of the twelve apostles of the Lord, were prophetesses. Luke, in the Acts of the Apostles, recalls them when they dwelt with their father in Cesarea of Judea: “We came to Cesarea, and having gone into the house of Philip the Evangelist, who was one of the seven deacons, we stayed with him. He had four virgin daughters who prophesied” (Acts, 21: 8-9) Continue Reading

THE MYSTERY OF THE RESURRECTION AND THE WOMAN

Another episode which bears witness to the importance of the woman is the resurrection of Christ. The fact is known by all. Here we want to emphasize the first meeting between the Avatar and a human being: the meeting of the resurrected Messiah did not take place with the men, with the apostles. It was the pious women who looked for him in the sepulcher, to anoint him, and not finding him, informed the most significant apostles, the truly intimate: Peter and John. But, Jesus was not there even for them. The privilege of seeing him was given to Mary of Magdala, as she was alone again in the sepulcher (John, 20: 1-18), and to her alone Jesus revealed that he was resurrected, only to her did he confer the missionary task to let all know: “I ascend to my Father and your Father, my God and your God.” And, a little before, it was Mary of Magdala to hear first the call of the resurrected Lord: – Mary!! – And she, turning around, answered in Hebrew: – Rabbuni! – that is: – Master!”. After the episode of the Samaritan, it is the moment of another woman: Mary of Magdala.
The Resurrection is one of the greatest among the Mysteries of the initiatic way, and this Mystery was unveiled to the Woman Mary of Magdala.
We find important information on the feminine Initiation and on her mission of Adept also in other traditions. In India, for example, not only can the woman be an Initiate, but she can also confer the initiatic grades to other people, men and women. So, the initiator of the great Shri Ramakrishna, Master of Swami Vivekananda, was the Bhairavi Brahmani. Continue Reading
