Yet, although their military prowess and skills in the martial arts have been studied exhaustively, an understanding of their belief system still eludes many. This original and exciting work examines the spiritual world of the samurai, from their attachment to Japan' s mainstream religions of Shinto and Buddhism, to their involvement in Confucianism, Christianity and Folk Religion. Samurai expert, Stephen Turnbull, examines important topics such as Zen and the martial arts, modern militarism, the cult of the sword, revenge and suicide, hara kiri and the kamikaze pilots - the suicide bombers of their day. He also looks at the fascinating issue of Japanese religious terrorism, as well as the growing cult status of the Samurai both in Japan and in the West. The fierce loyalty and self-sacrificing attitude of the Samurai have made them both a legend and a cult.

Неудивительно, что после указания о необходимости служения Богу- "Небесному уважаемому" (тянь цзунь), на втором месте стояло служение земным властям - "мудрым верховным" (шэн шан), которые являются "божественными порождениями" (шэнь шэн). [Вэн Шаоцзюнь, стр. 91. В переводе Саэки : " ow, all he Sacred Superiors are o o her ha gods bor i o his world" (Saeki P.Y. he es oria docume s a d relics i Chi a. (1937), p. 134)] В "Каноне Иисуса Мессии" обращают на себя внимание "три дела" - служение Богу, правителю и родителям. Нетрудно заметить, что в Заповедях Моисея не было заповедовано служение вышестоящему начальству. Подобное новшество можно достаточно уверенно истолковать как творческую адаптацию христианского вероучения к социально-политическому контексту и конфуцианскому учению о "служении Небу, служении правителю и служении отцу". Тот же процесс китаизации и адаптации несторианства к китайской этике можно усмотреть в повышении статуса ветхозаветной пятой заповеди о почитании родителей, которая была передвинута в "Каноне Иисуса Мессии" на второе место.
