My fourth book isolates this topic from the history of my third, which finds the origins of the Bible in Greek Stoicism and Egyptian mysticism. From Egypt comes the metaphor of the Star of Bethlehem’s judgment and eternal life pointed out by the pyramids (I go into it deeper). From Greek Stoicism comes the knowledge that our creator reigns everywhere and is not isolated to a sexist and genealogically xenophobic temple. However, such a place would also be sacred. Jesus explains, Solomon in all his glory does not compare to the beauty of the lilies of the field. In my opinion, Egypt’s Alexandria put together the metaphor of the cracked pot in the non-canonical Thomas’s Gospel, explaining other metaphors and how the temple’s pretention causes the meal, the good stuff, to be lost, or more precisely, to be strewn on all roads and freely available to all. In my opinion, Rome edited these Alexandrian writings, which reject all priestly intercessors, as did Jesus, to allow a Roman authority (the Catholic Church).
Due to the limited scope of the topic, my fourth book is short but does include the overarching context of Parthia’s proxy war against Rome. Jerusalem was caught in the middle. I hope you’ll enjoy my book!
