In the past Venus was very star like. It’s epithets include the Great Torch of Heaven. And the Lady of the Eternal Flame. It’s number of rays or discharged jets varied. At one time it took the form of a triskelion. Then it transformed to a cross. It also took the appearance of a swastika. And a celestial wheel.
Every nation worshipped Venus as a God. Ishtar, Innana, Isis, the Queen of Heaven and the Mother Goddess are all common motifs.
Venus was situated in front of Saturn and between Saturn and Mars. Thus Venus was heralded as the wife or daughter of Saturn. And as mother or sister of Mars.
Venus and Mars were also seen as lovers.
Mars is the smaller orb and in religion as well as myth is visualized as a child on his mother’s lap.
Mythological literature abounds with stories about the birth of Venus. Could this mean it was recently expelled from Saturn? Logic dictates that the many other moons that now circle around Saturn were ejected from their primary. Since Venus is intensely charged with an extraordinarily high temperature the notion of recent birth gains validity.
Mars was situated in front of Venus at the top of a celestial tree or mountain.
Mars came down this Axis Mundi to Earth as God Incarnate. Mars is considered as the Coming One. The Messiah.
He is portrayed in myth as the Hero, Strongman and Trickster.
In religion he is the only begotten Son of God sent by the Father to save the world.
Festivals, religious rituals and dances of various societies primitive and developed alike commemorate this approach or descent.
In order to create a religion Jesus was given Martian attributes. As the Savior and the Son of God.
He was accorded with the ability to do superhuman feats. The same ones as his Martian predecessor such as walking on water and rising from the dead.
The belief of walking on water arose because Saturn’s cosmos was looked upon as a celestial ocean.
For instance Poseidon (Saturn) taught Orion (Mars) to walk on water.
The belief of rising from the dead came about because when Mars ascended in front Venus he was regarded as Lord of the Netherworld. Which is the abode of the dead. And then in his final position in the Lap of Mary (Venus) was imbued with power. He then was seen as becoming beautiful or coming to life.
Horus (Mars) suckled at the breast of Hathor (Venus) and was transfigured and rejuvenated.
Jesus was a member of the Essenes. This was a communal monastic order that was concentrated around the Sea of Galilea. Qumran was it’s center and Nazareth where Jesus grew up was nearby. A Nazarene was typically an Essene. Men and women were treated as equals. They believed money was inherently evil for it created greed and dishonesty. That is why he overturned the money changer’s tables in the Temple. It is also why he said go sell all your belongings and come follow me.
This Essene belief is the reason why Jesus said it is easier for a rope (the Greek word for rope is camelos which is incorrectly translated as camel) to enter the eye of a needle than for a rich man to inherit the kingdom of god. When you translate it as rope the verse immediately makes sense.
John the Baptist was also an Essene and was looked upon with high regard. That is why Jesus said there is no man greater than John.
The Essenes believed in reincarnation. They thought they could channel souls of divine origin into their group. Thus they endeavored to bring a deliverer or savoir into the world.
Jesus’ belief that his father was God was from his Essene upbringing.
