The Christian faith blossoms from roots of Judaism. We can better understand and know Jesus in the context of his Hebrew identity. Jesus was called Rabbi.

Mysticism in the Christian experience is rooted in the transcendent reality of God beyond rational thought, reaching back to the desert fathers and mothers, blossoming in St. John of the Cross, Meister Eckhart, the Quakers, the contemplative practice, and centering prayer.
