Josephus says that they adopted children for instruction, but Philo says that there were to be no children because they would be a hindrance. 23 With regard to marriage, Philo affirms that the Essenes banned marriage because women were selfish, jealous, deceitful, seducing, and leading the sovereign mind into bondage to her and the care of children. 24 But Josephus says that marriage was important for the. 17 Thou shalt greet the angel of the water on the sixth morning, 18 Thou shalt greet the angel of the air on the seventh morning. 19 All these angels of the Earthly Mother shalt thou greet, and consecrate thyself to them, that thou mayest enter the infinite garden where stands the tree of life. Essene Book of Revelation - REJECTED SCRIPTURES The Essene Book of Revelation The original text of the Essene Book of Revelation is available within The Gospel of the Essenes by Szekely, a translation of old manuscripts that exist in both Aramaic and Old Slavonic. The Essene version is a short and easy to understand description of the End Days. As we will see in later paragraphs, the authentic scriptures of Jesus are today available - after a period of suppression by worldly powers - in such texts as The Essene Gospel of Peace (a four book set) and The Gospel of the Holy Twelve. But before we examine the above, we must set the stage.

Greece is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. With over sixty inhabited islands, historic sites that span four millennia, idyllic beaches and towering mountain ranges there is a wide variety of tourist attractions in Greece to explore. And despite the debt crisis with credit downgrades and protest by day, Greece as a travel destination is as popular as it has ever been.
Mount Athos is a mountain and a peninsula in northern Greece. The peninsula, the easternmost “leg” of the larger Halkidiki peninsula houses some 1,400 monks in 20 Eastern Orthodox monasteries. An autonomous state under Greek sovereignty, entry into Mount Athos is strictly controlled and only males are allowed entrance.
Situated near ancient Sparta, Mystras served as the capital of the Peloponnesus in the 14th and 15th centuries, ruled by relatives of the Byzantine emperor. The site remained inhabited throughout the Ottoman period but was abandoned in 1832, leaving only the breathtaking medieval ruins, standing in a beautiful landscape.
Lindos is a medieval village on the island of Rhodes that is made up of a network of cobbled streets amid whitewashed houses.

The Samariá Gorge is a 16 km (10 miles) long canyon in southwest Crete. Walking the Samariá Gorge is extremely popular and more than a quarter million tourists do so each year. The walk takes 4 to 7 hours and passes through forests of ancient cypresses and pines, then cuts between vertical cliffs through the mountains to emerge at Agia Roumeli on the Libyan sea.
Located in the north-west of Kefalonia, Myrtos Beach is world-famous for the magical colors of the water. The blue and turquoise colors of the sea contrast sharply with the bright white of the smooth marble pebbles of the beach. The steep mountains and tall cliffs behind Myrtos beach only add to its beauty. For all these reasons Myrtos has previously been voted 12 times as the best beach in Greece.
In ancient times Delphi was the most important site in ancient Greek religion, home to the sanctuary and oracle of Apollo. The ancient theatre of Delphi was built on a hill giving spectators a view of the entire sanctuary and the spectacular landscape below. It was originally built in the 4th and could seat 5,000 spectators. Today it is one of the top tourist attractions in Greece.
Metéora (“suspended in the air”) in central Greece is a collection of six monasteries spectacular situated on top of several rock pillars. The first monastery in Metéora was founded in the 14th century. Access to the monasteries was deliberately difficult, requiring either long ladders or large nets used to haul up both goods and people. This required quite a leap of faith – the ropes were replaced only “when the Lord let them break”.
