Jesus Christ, Sun of God: Ancient Cosmology and Early Christian Symbolism

Front Cover
Quest Books, Oct 1, 1993 - Religion - 448 pages
The early Christian Gnosis did not spring up in isolation, but drew upon earlier sources. In this book, many of these sources are revealed for the first time. Special emphasis is placed on the Hellenistic doctrine of the "Solar Logos" and the early Christian symbolism which depicted Christ as the Spiritual Sun, the illumination source of order, harmony, and spiritual insight. Based on 15 years of research, this is a unique book which throws a penetrating light on the secret traditions of early Christianity. It clearly demonstrates that number is at the heart of being. Jesus Christ, Sun of God, illustrates how the Christian symbolism of the Spiritual Sun is derived from numerical symbolism of the "ancient divinities."

I give this book a 5 Star rating. VERY Few people will naturally understand why I do so but these are Flatliner PhD's who are called Theologians and OR Mathematicians and KNOW not that they know not.VERY Few scientis for example KNOW where and why the Mean Diameter of the SUN, the Moon and the EARTH is given us in Luke chapter One or why we are given the Cosmic Harmonic of 4320 in 56638 as well as the SPEED of LIGHT when this Harmonic is squared. FOOLS all of them. They call transitionals in science CONSTANTS and or Absolutes in their NOT knowing framework of reference when ignorant of the ONE and the ONLY Universal Absolute eternal in the NAME of Jesus Christ in Hebrew Gematric science as 7920 (the Mean Dia. of tyhe EARTH where he placed His NAME) and why, when NOT in this NAME, nothing can be in LIFE.
