With today’s interpretations encouraged by its preachers “It must have been a miracle.” or “It did not happen” Both are wrong, But It is true! Do you believe? Looking at the life of Christ and comparing it to what was happening at the time, along with what was happening before and what happened after. With testimony from witnesses who knew the gospel truth, we can unravel the tangled web that shrouded this man in mystery, and answer many questions by bringing about rationality to the first miracle. The virgin birth of Jesus. But to understand why this has been passed down as truth, one must allow for the fact that the people of the time believed it was true. The truth has not changed, we have. At the time Christ was indeed born of a virgin and son of a god. The perception of Virgins and Gods were, slightly different back then.
The conversion to Christianity inevitably had a profound effect on this socio-religious system from the 5th century onward, though its character can only be extrapolated from documents of considerably later date. By the early 7th century the church had succeeded in relegating Irish druids to ignominious irrelevancy, while the filidh, masters of traditional learning, operated in easy harmony with their clerical counterparts, contriving at the same time to retain a considerable part of their pre-Christian tradition. What survived of ancient ritual practice tended to be related to the traditional repertoire of the filidh, or to the central institution of sacral kingship. A good example is the pervasive and persistent concept of the hierogamy (sacred marriage) of the king with the goddess of sovereignty: the sexual union, or banais ríghi (“wedding of kingship”), which constituted the core of the royal inauguration, seems to have been purged from the ritual at an early date through ecclesiastical influence, but it remains at least implicit, and often quite explicit, for many centuries in the literary tradition. en.wiki.
Including within the bible? Lets look at sacred marriage and what the ritual represents, to see if Jesus participated in such a practice and weather this could have anything to do with his “god given ways”.
a “Sacred Marriage” with the High priestess was a union with theTriple Goddess Mari-Anna-Ishtar who was popularly worshiped at the time of Christ. This Goddess was noted for her triple-towered temple or “magdala.” It is important to note that much of the imagery in the Gospels, especially regarding the Marys, corresponds to the worship of this Goddess Mari-Anna-Ishtar. This will be explored in more detail in the following sections.
You can’t have a marriage without a woman right? Without one it would take a miracle. Wait!
In the gospels several women come into the story of Jesus with great energy, including erotic energy. There are several Marys—not least, of course, Mary the mother of Jesus. But there is Mary of Bethany, sister of Martha and Lazarus. There is Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and Mary the wife of Clopas. Equally important, there are three unnamed women who are expressly identified as sexual sinners. the woman with a “bad name” who wipes Jesus’ feet with ointment as a signal of repentance, a Samaritan woman whom Jesus meets at a well and an adulteress whom Pharisees haul before Jesus to see if he will condemn her.
www.smithsonianmag.com… Taking onto account the churches later persecution of the atributes of these women it is suggestive that the three “unnamed” women in the bible are representatives the guardian triple goddess in individual form. what I mean is the prostitute(priestess) is the Samaritan woman at the well(temple) is the church accused adulteress. The well priestesses in Celtic tradition were highly regarded in society. They accumulated wealth by honouring the request of the needy and accepting the offerings to the goddess that they represented. The hoards preserved the water from being polluted. While tending to the well these women assumed the role of, and were considered divine or the personification of a divinity. Such beliefs were not peculiarly Celtic and held throughout the world. The last remnants of this practise that the church adopted can be found in monasteries and the symbolism of the nun… A symbol that the doors to the earlier temples were firmly closed, making the birth of a virgin, a thing of the past.
Sacred Temple Prostitutes were often called Virgins. In addition, children of The Sacred Marriage, a ritual union of a temple priestess and a king willing to die for his people, were often called “virgin born” or “divine children,” just as Christ was. It is possible that Mother Mary was dedicated to a Goddess temple when she was a child.
Perhaps she was born through temple ritual, herself being a immaculate conception.
Perhaps Mother Mary was a temple priestess, thus making Jesus (or Yeshua) a divine child. There is even stronger evidence that Mary Magdalen was a temple priestess, so perhaps this is the true connection between Mother Mary and Mary Magdalen. Next, Mary is known as a prostitute, just as the Goddess priestesses were titled “Sacred Prostitutes,” although a more recent and accurate translation titles them “Sacred Women” or “hierodulae” (B, p. 29). Such prostitutes were considered evil by Jewish leaders of the time. That Jesus/Yeshua would associate with such a woman would indeed invoke the scorn of his disciples, as is recorded in the New Testament. Thirdly, Mary Magdalen is identified in Mark and Luke as the woman who was possessed by seven demons, which Yeshua cast out of her. The seven demons were a symbolic part of a temple ritual known as “The Descent of Inanna,” one of the most ancient ceremonies known, recorded in the Epic of Gilgamesh. This ritual was known to be practiced in the Jerusalem temple of Mari-Anna-Ishtar. The last, and perhaps strongest, piece of evidence is the anointing of Yeshua with the sacred oil, an event which (uncharacteristically) was recorded in all four New Testament Gospels, pointing to its significance. The anointing of the Jesus’ head with oil (as described in Mark 14:3-4) is an unmistakable symbol of The Sacred Marriage, a ceremony performed by temple priestesses.
Yet another layer of symbolism lies in the fact that the human/divine partner is the king. The sacred marriage brings together the king and the goddess in the most intimate possible ways, and thereby allows the king access to the world of the gods impossible for other humans to achieve…
But should be a piece of cake for a son of god, born of a virgin.
