Jesus Speaks About Women

In 1887 Russian anthropologist Nicolas Notovitch travelled to India in the hope to study Hindu culture.   Notovitch arrived in Ladakh which is located on the northern border of India, as this was the point from where he would make his journey back home – through Karakorum and Chinese Turkestan. 

During his stay in Ladakh, Notovich had been told about a Buddhist monastery where manuscripts recording the life of Jesus were to be found.  These manuscripts were in Lhasa and was prohibited to ‘white’ man, as was the entire country of Tibet at that time.   

During that specific point in time whilst Notovitch was in Ladakh, it was known that the British government were suspicious that any russian who set foot in India was suspected of being either an agitator or spy, hence Notovitch began his journey home as the British authorities were getting nervous about Notovitch’s presence there. 

Notovitch did not make it too far when he fell from his horse, broke his leg and this forced him to stay at the Himis monastery. 

It was here that Notovitch took advantage of his stay and asked for the manuscript on the life of Jesus be brought to him. 

Notovitch showed the text to leaders of the Russian Orthodox church and this was not received well.  In fact he was advised that printing it could cause a litany of ‘problems’ so to speak. 

And then a year later Notovitch presented it to a cardinal who offered to pay him for his efforts in exchange for the text to be suppressed. 

In time though Notovitch did publish his findings The Unknown Life of Jesus Christ.    The following is an extract of the original Text of Nicolas Notovitch’s Discovery in 1887 and is of Jesus speaking about women. 

When I read this excerpt for the first time, it brought tears to my eyes as I had always intuitively known that religions have played an integral role in keeping  many ‘truths’ hidden from us – especially where women are concerned and their rightful place- their divine inheritance.


An old woman, who had approached the group to better hear Jesus was pushed aside by one of the disguised men, who placed himself before her. 

Jesus said:  ” It is not good for a son to push away his mother, that he may occupy the place which belongs to her.  Whoso doth not respect his mother – the most sacred being after his God – is unworthy of the name of son.

Harken to what I say to you:  Respect woman; for in her we see the mother of the universe, and all the truth of divine creation is come through her.

She is the fount of everything good and beautiful, as she is also the germ of life and death.  Upon her man depends in all his existence, for she is his moral and natural support in his labors.

In pain and suffering she brings you forth; in the sweat of her brow she watches over your growth, and until her death, you cause her great anxieties.  bless her, and adore her, for she is your only friend and support on earth.

Respect her; defend her.  In so doing you will gain for yourself her love;you will find favor before God, and for her sake many sins will be remitted to you.

Love your wives and respect them. for they will be the mothers of tomorrow and later the grandmothers of a whole nation.

Be submissive to the wife; her love ennobles man, softens his hardened heart, tames the wild beast in him and changes it to a lamb.

Wife and mother are priceless treasures which God has given to you.  They are the most beautiful ornaments of the universe, and from them will be born all who inhabit the world. 

Even as the Lord of Hosts separated the light from the darkness, and the dry land from the waters, so does woman possess the divine gift of calling forth out of man’s evil nature all the good that is in him

Therefore I say unto you, after God, to woman you must belong your best thoughts, for she is the divine temple where you will most easily obtain perfect happiness.

Draw from this temple your moral force.  There you will forget your sorrows and your failures, and recover the love necessary to aid your fellow men.

Suffer her not to be humiliated, for by humiliating her you humiliate yourselves, and lose the sentiment of love, without which nothing can exist here on earth.

Protect your wife, that she may protect you – you and all your household.  All that you do for your mothers, your wives, for a widow or any other woman in distress, you will do for your God”
