BOOK 3 – GENESIS REVELATIONS SERIES
An in-depth examination of the life of Jesus, the myth and the man.The various ancient archetypes and celestial phenomena that the man and the myths are modelled on and the progressive exclusion the feminine over time as monotheism took form in established religion.
Alchemical Christ is an in-depth exploration of the life of Jesus, the man behind the myth and the myth behind the man. We need to unpack the multiple contradictory statements about his tribal affiliation, genealogy, date of birth, priestly lineage, whether he had brothers or sisters, and most importantly, the revolutionary aspect of his story to get a clearer picture of exactly what was going on at the time of his journey. Why were Zealots and assassins amongst his disciples? Did he die for our sins, and was it God’s will?
The persona attributed to Christ is modelled on archetypal Gods that can be found in various cultures that the Hebrews engaged on their journey to the Promised Land, from Mesopotamia to Egypt, Canaan, Phoenicia, Persia, and Babylonia. Jesus is not unique in his representation as a fertility deity, connected to the death and rebirth of nature and the cycles of time. Many of these cultural deities were based on celestial phenomena related to the sun, moon, planets and stars. The Bible condemns all knowledge gained from the observation of the heavens, but could the reason behind this taboo be an attempt to hide the stellar identity of the Gods?
The Sacred Marriage between the God/Sun and Goddess/Venus was enacted inside the Temple of King Solomon in Jerusalem based on these astro-theological beliefs. The Israelite God, Yahweh, was married to the Goddess Asherah for most of Hebrew history, forming the foundation for the myths related to Jesus and Mary Magdalene. As monotheism solidified after the Babylonian captivity and the destruction of Jerusalem, God became the sole deity, while the priestesses and the Goddesses were turned into prostitutes. Women were forbidden from speaking or teaching in churches and synagogues and forever banished from the Temple.
