Sacred Waters

2 Now there is in Jerusalem by the sheep gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew Bethesda, having five porticoes. 

3 In these lay a multitude of those who were sick, blind, lame, and withered, waiting for the moving of the waters; 

4 for an angel of the Lord went down at certain seasons into the pool and stirred up the water; whoever then first, after the stirring up of the water, stepped in was made well from whatever disease with which he was afflicted. 

 (John 5:2-4. -- New American Standard Bible)


This particular passage has been partly excised and mangled by revisions of the text by religious authorities -- based on disputed scholarship that parts of 5:3 and 4 are not in earliest manuscripts.

In any case, the "stirred" (or "troubled") waters are, in our view, waters expressing energy of the angel -- energy that creates vortices in the waters.
