The Cross symbol
The Cross symbol
Jesus on the Cross is a well known symbol
in the Christian world.
We have to keep in mind, that the Cross and
the crucified Saviour are mentioned in many
ways and in many religions around the world.
The symbol is not unique for Christianity.
But it is in Christianity a main and central symbol.
The Sorrowful God with pain and suffering is an element of the
Goddess religion as it existed in Old Europe from
9000BC until 800BC.
Among Christian scholars there is no unity
about the structure of the Cross.
The main discussion is about:
-was the cross where Jesus died, just a simple
tree trunk, without a horizontal layer?
-was the cross a T symbol, with only a horizontal layer
on top of the standing pole?
-was the cross a complete X symbol,
with the horizontal layer crossing the
There are also very good arguments,
that Simon van Cyrene not only carried
the pole of the Cross,
but took the place of Jesus on the Cross,
which makes Simon van Cyrene
a real hero and friend of Jesus.
It is specially the newly found Gospel of Judas
that gives a new light on the death of Jesus.
The divine God the Child incarnated into the body of his earthly appearance.
By the death of the earthly appearance
the divine Child was freed to start the work
of leading the way into the Heaven.
The people are called out to start the journey home.
The Goddess religion of Old Europe has direct connections with ancient Egypt.
In the Goddess religion the cross was indicating the fullness
of the universe, the four corners of the Earth.
The cross symbol can be found in ancient Egypt in a very special way.
When we look towards the Egyptian ancient religion
we see that the T-cross was carried by hand.
A circular strip was meant to hold the T-cross in hand,
hanging down from the circular hand hold.
The symbol was in ancient Egyptian also
a hieroglyph,called the Ankh.
The T-cross including the circular strip was pictured
everywhere on temples, on statues, on jewelry.
It is sure, that the handheld T-cross was
a major symbol in ancient Egyptian religion.
The Amen temple of Karnak is not only the largest
temple in the world, used for 5000 years of worship
to the unvisible and unknown god Amen,
but is also shaped as a T-cross.
This is not the case for any other Egyptian temple.
Maybe a few other Amen temples have a T-cross shape,
but it is unsure whether that played a role
in the daily worship.
In the Amen temple of Karnak one route of worship
is from West to East, and this is the Hodos
Jesus was pointing at.
Perpendicular upon this main axis was
the South-North axis, a long ceremonial
way, coming from the Amen temple in Luxor,
through an alley of sphinxes into the Karnak temple,
going through four big pylons and
courtyards ending sideways at the main entrance
of the Amen temple in Karnak.
The long pole of the T-cross is the South-North axis
and the horizontal layer of the T-cross
is then the West-East axis of the Amen temple.
The T-cross shape must have been an important part
of the temple services, because the T-shape route
was part of the temple from the very first
start of the construction in the Middle Kingdom.
The conclusion that the Christian religion is
strongly related with this Karnak temple.
The T shaped structure of the routes of processions
along these main axis were a major and unique
feature of this temple, dedicated to the
invisible and unknown creator god Amen.
To the left was the temple of God the Child Khonsu and to the right
along the cross was the temple of God the mother Mut.
This is the way the Invisible Spirit wants itself to be known to us.
