Part of the training for Home Temple Episcopate, T:.H:.G:. guides Initiates through seven First-Order Empowerments that are done on lunar cycles after Easter-Passover Vigil and Wesak Initiation. This book contains the preliminary instruction required for orientation to these plus an application form for admission to annual Vigil, Initiation Rite, and acceptance into First Order.


"Rarely in the annals of history has a new concept come as powerful as T:.H:.G:. The Grail Master is one of the most learned men that I have ever known who has been able to remain in contact with humanity in order to spread love and benediction."

Eugene Whitworth, M.A., Ph.D., D.O.J.S.
Author of The Nine Faces of Christ, Genesis, The Jaguar Prince, et.al; Founder of the Great Western Brotherhood and Great Western University; Supreme Minister, Temple of the Jade Sun; Bishop Templar T:.H:.G:.


"The reason the Temple of the Holy Grail has to be taken seriously is that its Empowerments really do work. I have done a great many esoteric spiritual practices in my seventy-odd years, but I have never found anything to compare with the power and efficacy of the Temple Empowerments. It is in that fact that the true authority of the Temple lies."

H. E. Count George Boyer, D.D., Th.D., C.C.M.S.
Grand Master and Lord Abbot, The Healing, Teaching, and Chivalric Order of St. Michael and St. Raphael; Bishop Templar, Knight, and Pontifex, OSMTH (Knights Templar); Bishop Emeritus, Apostolic Episcopal Church; Superior, Guardians of the Way


"I found the Temple of the Holy Grail when I was researching topics of Templar spirituality, on a personal Quest for further Light in my spiritual life. Even that I was fascinated by the teachings, I found the spiritual practices even more meaningful and more profound. Through the practices, I gathered a sense of a balanced discipline which allowed me to reconnect with the forces of nature and the basic energies of the Planet on one side, and the higher spiritual forces on the other. Through the practices, I was able to make contact with the Egregor of the Temple, an intensely luminous spiritual force, clean, powerful, a real promise for the future of the Servers of Humanity which are being trained by the T:.H:.G:.

"In summary, the Temple is firmly rooted in the past through deep connections into the Initiatic and Apostolic chains of power of the Western tradition; but is looking into the future as an innovative, fresh and vital Esoteric School."

THE AUTHENTIC JESUS: a Guide to Aramaic Idioms, Recent Research, and the Original Message of Jesus Christ, Lewis Keizer (Home Temple Press)  Included as part of the Diaconate Study materials. Available as E-book from the WISDOM SEMINARS site for $12.

The basic textbook used in the Home Temple Diaconate Studies for introducing the historic background and teachings of the Master Jesus. Based upon Aramaic language concepts and the background of historical Jewish mysticism without which the teachings cannot be understood. Originally written in 1976 and revised in 1998, this book anticipated the work and many of the conclusions of the controversial Jesus Seminar—an ecumenical research project of scholars to recover the historical teachings of Jesus. Keizer’s understanding and evaluation of the sources, however, represents a more profound and constructive spiritual understanding than was achieved in most publications of the Jesus Seminar, many of which focused upon merely debunking Christian theology.

Keizer’s inspired translation and paraphrase of the teachings of Master Jesus following the Marcan Gospel order and amplified by all extant historical logia of Jesus from canonical and non-canonical sources. Clarifies one level of spiritual meaning for non-scholars that is otherwise inaccessible from standard Bible translations, as it is based on original Aramaic language studies and the historical Jewish mysticism and setting out of which Jesus taught. Used with the Lectionary for Home Temple Liturgy of the Chalice.
