Jesus and the Young Man

From the Secret Gospel of Mark:

This letter by Clement of Alexander was found by accident by researchers in a monastery in the middle east. The following passage, Clement says, was inserted between Mark 10:34 and 35; after the paragraph where Jesus on his journey to Jerusalem with the disciples makes the third prediction of his death, and before Mark 10:35.

This is remiscent of the Masonic 3rd Degree, in which the candidate, who is lying in a "grave" is taken by the hand, pulled up, and restored to life.

The young man appears again in Mark 14:51-52 in Gethsemane:

And he appears for a third time in Mark 16:5

There is no way of knowing who this young man was, though there is reason to believe it was the Apostle Mark himself as a young man. Its pretty certain Jesus was an Essene, and not much is known about their secret practices. But they might will have been tantric/sexual in nature. Whatever the initiation he underwent with Jesus, it was powerful enough for him to stay with his master even unto death.

As Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientoloegy said: "let me take the opportunity to disabuse you of some lovely myths. For instance, the historic Jesus was .... a lover of young boys and men...."
