Metaphysical meaning of Barabbas (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Barabbas (mbd)
Barabbas, bär-ab'-bas (Gk. from Heb.) --son of father; son of my father; father's son.

A prisoner, charged with insurrection and murder, who was held at Jerusalem. The Jews demanded that he be released instead of Jesus (Matt. 27:16-26).

Meta. The adverse consciousness (rebellion and hatred) to which man gives himself when he allows himself to oppose the Christ. Man gives free rein to this adverse consciousness when he would destroy the Christ, or true spiritual I AM in himself, since it is through Christ alone that an overcoming can be gained over the Adversary. This adverse state of thought (Barabbas) is of its father--the Devil.
