Arthur Edward Waite wrote that in the Zohar, which is the foundational work of the Jewish Kabbalah, there lie embedded fragments of a mystical work, Sepher ha-bahir, an anonymous work of Jewish mysticism, attributed to the 1st century, behind which Waite discerned “a single radical and essential thesis which is spoken of in general terms as 'The Mystery of Faith'.” The Mystery of Faith, he said, is represented by the letter of the Tetragrammaton and is identical with the Mystery of Sex. He saw the Mystery of Faith as underlying also popular Christian devotion, such as the veneration of relics, and the doctrine of the Eucharist, and the legends of the Grail as telling that “the secret words, which were of the essence of the Mystery of Faith, had passed out of all common knowledge”.
