Jesus Created the Greatest Apprenticeship System

Jesus Created the Greatest Apprenticeship System

 
RE: The Agenda Series – Education in 2030

 
Let me open by paraphrasing Buddha, “When the student is ready the teacher will appear”. It is my belief that the teacher is both an internal stimulus and peripheral force.

Jesus’ disciples were for the most part fisherman, one a tax collector and the other a political dogmatist. What transformed these simple men into a theological force was “inspiration”. Jesus transformed simple men into revelatory muses by bestowing upon them the gift of empowerment.

I do not believe that students know more today than they may have known 5,000 years ago or even 500 years ago. Education today, for lack of a better word, is “controlled programming” overseen by a “nepotistically controlled fraternity”. Schooling in a time long ago was a life-long passion. Learned individuals spoke many languages, were able to read ancient artifacts, built their own laboratories, developed new sciences and mathematics, studied human behavior, pursued the arts, and were politically in tune. In other words, they and not the media were the “aether” that propelled the world.

The ancients and our centuries old predecessors had access to profound “esoteric” knowledge. It is that knowledge that is gradually being relinquished to the so-called “curriculum”.

Any human being can become a doctor, scientist or lawyer. The difficulty is that the curriculum has been intentionally designed to distract the enquiring mind.

The apprenticeship system would allow anyone to graduate between the ages of 14-18 with doctoral qualifications. Our goal should be to route the mind in the direction of its predestined enlightenment, and not distract it by temporal panaceas.

Unfortunately the system, teachers and organizations have become part of the problem. It is more about what’s in it for them than what is in it for the student. Finally, fraternity (Freemasonry) has fully corrupted the system by rewarding and promoting internal membership incompetence rather than external genius. I know hundreds of examples of this if not thousands.

I have deliberately omitted the impact of technology on education because technology can be an instrument of good or evil. I will however say this; if we allow technology to eradicate the written text humanity will be doomed – for the truth will perish with it.

Thank you,
Joseph Pede
