Mysteries…

 

*

There is mystery upon mystery here.

We can begin to see why the Bards of Erin

might have been so enamoured of these stories.

They would certainly have ‘nutted out’ the names

of Abraham’s man servants…

*

In this vein, though, history may be set against us.

We will probably never be able

to give you a date for

Abraham’s sojourn in Moriah,

but we might well be able to tell you what day it was!

*

At the time this story was first told,

which was a long time before it found itself in the pages of a book,

the divinity of the people who later styled themselves Hebraic

was still seven-fold, as their seven-branched candlestick, the Menorah, will attest.

*

The binding… the knife… the ram…

are all clues to help ascertain

which of the seven aspect’s of the god-head appeared to Abram.

*

It was the God of War!

So, it must have been a Tuesday.

*

By the time this story did find its way into a book,

Abraham’s God had become something very different…

  1. This is fascinating. Is this in another book of yours (I do know one similar version was in the Bible) or is this a new study? Or a continuation of one ongoing? I have seen several others recently that seem to relate to characters/stories that have also been in the Bible. Curious minds want to know. We have come a long way from stone circles, castles and churches and other ruins. . .

      1. Whoo hooo! There are a lot of kind of mysterious things in the Bible, and who knows what will come up. You two are so amazing. You will keep me reading for the rest of my life and I am not at all complaining. I could continue to study too, so perhaps that will come with your other books. So much to look forward to, and at my age, etc., that is wonderful!!! I will need to live a LONG time to do it all.
