Christian Fish Symbol = Female

It’s a beautiful idea but I think it’s a lot simpler than that.

The fish theme, is seen many times throughout Jesus ministry and is one of the main reasons it is used as a Christian symbol.

There are many other verses about are just a few of them...

Matthew 14:17

"But we have only five loaves of bread and two fish!" they answered. ...

Jesus feeds the 5000 with only 5 loaves and 2 fish…

Fish symbolizes Miracles

John 21:4-6

Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus.

He called out to them, “Friends, haven’t you any fish?”

“No,” they answered.

He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish.

Fish symbolizes the power of God.

Matthew 4:19

Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men”

Fish symbolizes that believers are disciples of Christ.

Similar to the times when people worshiped the Bull....Taurus....during the age of Taurus.

Canaanite El God....was a Bull God. If Im not mistaken...Mithra's stories about 'killing the Bull' was in a time that the age of Taurus was ending. Then you have the age of the 'ram' (Aries)...inbetween the age of Taurus and and Pisces....and there was times when sacrifices of the 'rams' was a part of religions.

A particular zodiac sign dominates the world for about 2200 years, moving in retrograde. This affects religion, then culture, and then history interpretation.

The Spiritualist religions for instance are like Christianity 2000 years ago.

The Gnostic texts are all late frauds by tiny fringe groups or even lone individuals. Anyone reading this would be well advised to trust the Bible as it came down from Orthodoxy, rather than someone who accuses Wikipedia of being an "accessory before the fact to genocide" and "criminal negligence resulting in genocide."

Many of the gnostic texts date back to the same time, if not earlier, then the gospels. There were different sects that had different beliefs after the time of Jesus.

Control and power doesnt suggest truth by any means.

I'm not siding with one or the other...I'm just saying.

The texts that were buried in Egypt and found are not frauds. Its just showing that different groups had different ways of relating their 'ways' of life to the man called 'Jesus'.

This stems from the fact that different sects viewed the OT differently. So their interpretations of 'Jesus' and his purpose are seen then, differently.

2000 Years ago there were about as many Christian sects, as what there are now. (Persecutions of Christians continued after Emperor Constantine's conversion. This time of other Christian sects.)

Gnosticism was advanced teachings, not meant for the general public. (It's like the Kaballah in Judaism, and Sufism in Islam.) The Vatican tried to wipe these out, as part of their desire to control the masses.
