Christian Kabbalah

Christian Kabbalah is based off of Jewish Kabbalah, or at least strongly influenced by it. Pico della Mirandola uses Cabalan principles to prove that the name IESU (Jesus) signifies the Son of God. Because in his (and his contemporaries’) opinion the Cabala can be used to show this, it should be accepted by Christians. As with “regular” Spanish Cabala, there are two parts: ars combinandi: the art of combining Hebrew letters. And the other part is to ‘capture the power of superior things’. Used to invoke angels. I’m currently gathering my sources together to do a podcast on Kabbalah including Christian Cabala and other systems of numerology and how they tie into Alchemy. So bear with me.
