The old testament israelis camp's shape while the israelis followed moses ( after being delivered from bondage and out of egypt ), was in the shape of a "cross".

Early chuch writers were able to find the cross in all sorts of places in the old Testament.

For example, when Jacob blessed Ephraim and Manasseh, they were placed in front of him with the elder son ready to receive his right hand.
Jacob wanted to give the better blessing to the other son, so he put his right hand on the head of the boy kneeeling on the left, and his left hand on the boy kneeling on the right.
Thus making the sign of the cross with his arms.

The cross has been a common and widely used symbol since well before Christianity adopted it. Is this suppose to prove something?

I made this thread to try to get help for myself, with finding a better understanding about this subject.

The Israelis were passing over the dry desert as they followed Moses ( and daily used this symbol of a cross in their camp ), after their having just been made free by the actions of the Passover lamb.

Jesus Christ is supposed to be the real Passover Lamb for everyone's sin.

You should put that in your OP...


There is no evidence of the "biblical exodus"... It may have happened but certainly not in the way the bible describes it...

Jesus was actually made the "Passover lamb"... by John... who changed the date of the event to suit prophecy...Take a look at Mark's version of his execution, and then see what John said

The cross is the symbolic representation of the 4 natures that create physical manifestation, fire, earth, air, and water. The center of the cross being the source of those 4 natures, also known as the ether, and the 4 arms representing thus stated 4 natures emanating from it, or stemming from it. The ancient meaning of "take up your cross" was the renunciation of the physical body, to sacrifice all that attaches your sense of "self" to the human organism. It would not be uncommon during those times for the cross to be used as a holy means of forming camps, gatherings, etc.

Remember, Moses came before Jesus, Moses was a bodhisattva and his actions paved the way for Jesus, who is a buddha, and his teachings to reach fruition within society.

Those 4 points also were the faces of the cherubim with the flaming sword as the center point (see the Gen 4 cherubim), also seen as the pillar of fire.

The cross was the Tau, the sign of Thoth. Thoth is also known as Nebo. Moses died on Mt. Nebo outside the promised land.

Nebo/Thoth is also known as Hermes. Jesus was transfigured on Mt. Hermes (Mt. Hermon)

Nebo/Thoth/Hermes is also known as Buddha.

Isaac the forerunner promise seed is I-Saac or Y-Saac. Saac is also Saka or Sakya

Sidhartha was known as Sakya-muni Buddha. The sakyamuni clan is the solar clan.

Look at what Peter says about the transfiguration


16 For we did not follow cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty.

17 For he received from God the Father honor and glory, when there was borne such a voice to him by the Majestic Glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased:

18 and this voice we [ourselves] heard borne out of heaven, when we were with him in the holy mount.

19 And we have the word of prophecy [made] more sure; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day-star arise in your hearts

Exodus didn't happen. There is absolutely no evidence that up to two million Hebrews lived in the desert for 40 years. Not one shard of pottery .. not one dead body ... not one bone ... not one animal carcass .... nothing. The Egyptian Army wasn't 'wiped out' like the bible says. We know this because the Egyptians went on to win great battles after Exodus supposedly happened. And the Egyptians were excellent record keepers and they have nothing written down about hundreds of thousands .. or even millions .. of Hebrews 'slaves' leaving.

There is no way to know that Moses camped in a cross ... because there is no evidence that an exodus even actually happened.

Serabit El Khadim, the temple of Hathor is probably the inspiration for Mt. Sinai

No it probably did not happen literally the way its written, but that is not the point. It is not meant to be scientific history. It is a mythological story that is "inspired" by real events.

It was never meant to be taken literally, just like the creation story is not meant to be science. That is a very modern view of ancient literature. The exodus is a bunch of oral stories codified into a national epic, for the purpose of telling a story.

And there is much truth in the story of exodus. It is dead literally but the spirit gives life.

Its' just like a childs bed time fairy tale story that has a moral lesson to it. The problem is that there are millions upon millions of people who take Exodus literally. And to base religious beliefs off a lie like that is dangerous.

There is a moral level but something much greater than that. The pattern of the tabernacle is a universal archetype.

I agree with you it's foolish for the mainly Americans who believe it's literal story. Also dangerous. BUT that doesn't negate the esoteric gold found hidden within the exoteric field of dirt so to speak.
