(Part 1 of 2)
Christianity, or the following of Christ and his teachings. The moral lessons the bible entails and the obligations of its followers. The ten
commandments, or laws, and the seven deadly sins and the punishments that go along with them.
These moral codes and teachings, along with it's over-zealous following have ravaged humanity for nearly 2000 years, and show no sign of stopping.
But what is Christianity? What does it mean to be Christian? These are questions that hold many answers, and many complexities. Let us explore this,
in a simplified manner, to try and uncover some truths.
Christ was born on the 25th day, of the 11th month. Or somewhere about this time, seeing as how even this is contested in debate.
He was born of the virgin Mary, and three kings adorned him with gifts upon his birth.
He was a teacher at 12, and baptized at 30 by John the Baptist. He had 12 disciples who followed him, and spread the his teachings and moral
He was known by many names such as the "Son of God", The "King of Kings", and others like the "Alpha and Omega".
Once betrayed by his disciple Judas for 30 silver pieces, he was crucified by the Romans, placed in a tomb, and was resurrected 3 days later and
ascended into Heaven.
This is all common knowledge to most people, and shouldn't be anything new. Now I will refer to someone also from biblical times, Joseph. Joseph:
Was of 12 brothers
Was sold for 20 silver coins by his brother Judah
Began work at 30
Was also crucified and killed.
Any coincidences anyone?
So I have a few questions:
1. What is the significance of 12?
2. What is the significance of the Orion's Belt?
3. What is the significance of the 25 of December?
4. What is the significance of the resurrection of Christ?
5. What about his ascent into heaven?
1. The Number 12's Significance:
The number 12 has significance in astrology, or the study of the stars. There are 12 Zodiac signs, derived form constellations seen in the stars. The
constellations where personified by the ancient peoples of the world and given great meaning through myth and lore. In Christianity and Judaism the
number 12 has a very strong significance. 12 Apostles, 12 Tribes of Israel, 12 Great Patriarchs, etc.
Why is this? Mainly due to the fact that we have 12 zodiac signs, seen throughout the year in certain intervals at different times of the year. Aries,
Taurus, Gemini, etc. These references to the number 12 are merely references to the zodiac signs, and their placements in our year, and the ages. For
every age there is a sign to depict it. We live in the age of Pisces, or the fish. Hints why one of many Jesus's signs is the fish, seen every where
from bumper stickers to shirts. The new age will be the Age of Aquarius, or the pitcher bearer. Aquarius is the bringer of water, hints the pitcher of
water he carries. He is the sign of spring.
The end of the world as we know it is more probably the end of the age as we know it, when the new age of Aquarius comes. The end of the world is
actually an error in interpretation, with Aeon, or Age, mistaken for World. The end of the world is actually the end of the age.
