Gebo means "Gift" in Proto-German and it is written as an "X", probably because the X was pronounces as the sound "gs".

The Cross is represented by the letter X, this is why we say X-mas. Christ is Greek for "Annointed one". In Greek, Christ is written like this "Χριστός" (xristos). In Greek, "Ch" (when it is pronounced hard like a "k") is written as "x" in Greek.

Gebo represents a Gift, Generosity, and a Sacrifice.



Christ taught people knowing that he was going to be accused by the religious and called "blasphemous". It was a self-sacrifice and he carried The Cross (notice how him carrying the Cross looks like the rune Gebo):



Here is an old Anglo Saxon poem associated with the symbol of Gebo (X) translated into English:



Generosity brings credit and honour, which support one's dignity;
it furnishes help and subsistence
to all broken men who are devoid of aught else.


May Jesus Christ grant you Wisdom and Understanding to grow and learn more.

X

The X Is Actually The Cross. The Cross Is Symbolic Of The Planet And The X Is What The Cross Looks Like As A Sphere Yet Also Planted.

The Cross Pre-dates Christ. I'm gathering it was just another Roman symbol added to Christianity just like Christmas falls on Saturnalia sort of thing.

The Dang Connection is that Almost All Religions can Trace Their "Lineage" Back to Zoroastrianism.

I can follow your view when we think of the Abrahamic religions and I would think Zoroastrianism influenced probably Hinduism but also that Hinduism probably influenced Zoroastrianism.

In a way all spiritual knowledge is a evolutionary evolving understanding that seem to become clearer and more spot on at times to later become unknown again and people being more concerned about the words describing the spiritual instead of seeking out the spiritual that the words can be used as a tool to find.

Indeed!

Before Jesus was born, before Mary and Joseph were born, Romans were using coins that looked like this, in honor of the deified Julius Caesar, known for his forgiving nature.



Clementiae, or clemency means forgiveness. Clementiae Caesar mean "Caesar forgives". Sound familiar?



An ancient depiction of the wax effigy of Caesar on a cross, above his resting place.

Gebo is a bit more complex than that, especially when used in context in a reading. It's more "partnership" than anything else. Normally it means there is an imminent partnership forming or to be expected. Now, where your interpretation comes in, is the secondary meaning of it which is the possibility of that union being with the divine.

A relationship with the divine is normally where all blessings and gifts flow from. So Gebo doesn't necessarily represent gifts, generosity, and sacrifice but rather the relationship with the divine that may lead to those things.

I think looking at it like that might make Gebo even more interesting for you.
