Hi Nebankh and all,

Thanks for your interesting post. I would like to add a few quotes out of Tom Harpur’s book "The Pagan Christ", chapter 5, pages 85, 86 and 87.

Begin of quotes

"Both Horus and Christ, and all the other Christ figures, come of age spiritually in a special rite at twelve"

"Both Horus and Jesus were accompanied by twelve disciples, as were Mithras and Dionysus."

"A vast flood of light is let in upon Gospel interpretation if it is understood that the twelve disciples of Jesus symbolised the twelve powers of spiritual light energy to be unfolded by man in twelve labours (or stages) of growth, all imaged by the twelve signs of the zodiac,"

"In the old religions of Egypt, Chaldea and Greece, the twelve rays of genius in humans were variously represented by:

- the twelve saviours of the treasure of light,
- the twelve reapers of the golden grain,
- the twelve harvesters in the fields of Amenta,
- the twelve builders,
- the twelve carpenters,
- the twelve potters,
- the twelve weavers of the patterns,
- the twelve fishermen,
- the twelve rowers of the boat of Ra (with Horus at the prow),
- the twelve sailors in the ship of Ra, the Sun,
- The twelve labours of Hercules,
- the twelve sons of Jacob,
- the twelve tribes of Israel,
- the twelve apostles,
- the twelve knights of King Arthur's round table,

all have the same zodiacal, evolutionary, and theological derivation."

"And then there were twelve months of the year."

"It was no accident that there were twelve gods with Odin in Norse mythology."

"The whole Bible, as anyone familiar with it knows, is permeated with the number twelve and multiples thereof. Twelve times twelve times 1000 gives the figure of 144.000, the symbol for all the elect of God in the Book of Revelation."

End of quotes.


What can I say, coincidence?

Regards,

Kees
