    In the importation of symbols and things from the East, Jesus' cousin John, returning first, brought with him the river washing purification ritual of the Ganges; prior to this others had brought the symbol of heaven enclosed, the shield of David, from Tibet; after this came Jesus with instantaneous healing through "non-partial beingness and doingness," and just plain righteousness and miraculous behaviors -- and now we look back and muse at what might have been, had the then Israelis been more receptive, and look we forward to a time, when ever they shall so be, Love, and the Bride of Christ descend where ever for ever, with its river of Life from the Throne and John washing our heads hearts and hands
