Jesus and Sabachthani

The last words of Jesus end with “Sabachthani”—there is some dispute about what this word means, because it doesn’t seem to appear in any known language. It is a word Iike “abandoned”, but somewhat mangled.

It is a quote, in part, by Jesus of Psalm 22:2, “My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?”. But the word here that corresponds to “abandoned” in Hebrew is nasavtani.

What then is Sabachthani? It is the mantra of Jesus—it is his “words of power”, his “writing in light” so described by magicians and by the Hindus. It is the magical word that corresponds to the true nature of reality and that word is always slightly mangled, so as to be in no language any man could ever recognise—or, rather, that the profane could never recognise.

These words are “names without a sign”—words that can only be perceived by the spirit freed from the physical bond in a moment of sudden illumination, and this is why Jesus speaks them as he dies.

We call them the magical sounds or the nomina arcana (the secret names)—in Greek, the “causal words” or, in Hindu, “the mantra”. It is the very essence of the thing, the perfect language. For every thing in existence there is not only a sound but also a form—a signature, proper to itself and no other. In kabbalah, these are “the names of light” or “the letters of light”.

So why does Jesus insert his magical word, his mantra, his logos, into this quote from Psalm 2:22? Because 2 + 2 + 2 = 6 and “6” is the number of love in numerology, and so he quotes 2:22 because Jesus came for the love of the Jews—and is himself love.
