C. Baxter Kruger – Incarnation, Unity, and the Femininity of God

C. Baxter Kruger

“There are 200 references in the Hebrew bible to
Rauch or which can be translated breath, wind, or spirit
and of the 89 (there’s always scholarly
debate about these things) but generally
89 times refers to the Holy Spirit of the 89: 80
times is feminine, and followed I think forty-five, [or] forty-four
times, something like that by feminine verbs, so the very second
verse in the in the bible, Rauch– feminine
spirit. Although one of the ones
that blew my mind was, all through the
Book of Judges, when ‘the Spirit of the
Lord came mightily,’ you know it’s all feminine.
I wasn’t taught that. I didn’t learn that
until I started [to] study Hebrew, but even
then nobody made anything of it,
and then there’s the fact that Jesus
spoke Aramaic. In both Hebrew and in
Aramaic to this day
Rauch is feminine so
you know my question is
why haven’t we ever been told this?”

The Mediation of Jesus Christ –by C. Baxter Kruger, Ph.D.

Union or Separation? It is an important question. Many of us, maybe most of us, started with separation from God because the Western Church has preached separation for so long we didn’t even realize there was an alternative way of looking at things. But, once you take off the glasses of separation and put on the glasses of Union, Oh My! How everything changes. Dr. C. Baxter Kruger has been making this point for over 30 years. His new essay “The Mediation of Jesus Christ” is the result of a life-time of study, preaching, discussion and living life from the vantage point of union. Union of the Father, Son and Spirit, union of Jesus with all humanity, indeed, union with all creation.  You may download it and send it to friends or provide them with the link to read it for themselves.
