The mystical theology of Nicea (The Nicene Creed) and of the Trinity (God is one and three at the same time), as taught by Athanasius, are well known. But the mystical legacy of the Alexandrian Mystics, as taught by Athanasius, Cyril, and subsequent Alexandrian bishops and monks (The Jesus Paradox), is relatively unknown. The Jesus Paradox brings Christian mystical theology full circle, tempering dualistic extremes and ushering in holistic understanding.[1]

The point of The Jesus Paradox is to “Exalt the One over the dyad—the single over the dual—and to free its nobility from all commerce with dualism…to bring into unity what was divided and to reconcile all things.”[2] These words of eleventh century monk, Nikitas Stithatos (d. 1090), resonate powerfully today. With all the scientific and technological advancements of our postmodern world, there seems to be more fragmentation of the soul than ever. The early monks may have had blind spots by twenty-first century standards, yet they name our blind spot more precisely than any. The Jesus Paradox and the unitive state of mind that produced its mystical theology can heal the fractured twenty-first century soul.

I’ve attempted to make the theology of Jesus as understood by early Mystics as contemporary as possible. This work isn’t the meat. It’s the salt in the meat. It isn’t the loaf. It is the leaven in the loaf. It isn’t the floodlight. It’s the candle. It’s not the teaching of mainstream Christianity. It’s the teaching of the lineage of the Alexandrian Mystics in contemporary language.

[1] In my book, Healing The Divide, I have no intention of dishing out the master theology that must be accepted in toto. Theology’s depth is beyond the human mind’s scope and cannot, I believe, be grasped in toto. Healing The Divide is also not about solving Christianity’s problems by simply plugging in the correct formula. The Jesus Paradox (Miaphysite) gets at something much deeper. And that’s the exquisite symmetry of God’s human incarnation—of finding that primal balance, which frees us from the choke hold of dualistic thought, tempers extremes, and invites the peace that passes understanding.
