21. The Shrine of Baal-Zephon [Aeon Journal $]
... shrewdly replied that were the Israelites to hold their religious rites in Goshen, they might offend Egyptian sentiment and even cause a riot. (11) And there is, again, nothing unbelievable about this, especially since the Israelites were not exactly popular during that time. So again Moses told Pharaoh: "We will go three days' journey into the wilderness, and sacrifice to Yahweh Elohim, as he shall command us." (12) Brick making with foreign labor in Egypt. Although those depicted here are identified as Syrians and Nubians, the scene is reminiscent of the enforced labor of the Israelites as described in Exodus 1:14. (From a painting in the tomb of Rekhmire, vizier of Thutmose III, at Thebes.) And Pharaoh finally replied: "I will let you go, that ye may sacrifice to Yahweh Elohim in the wilderness; only ye shall not go very far away." (13) I shall not here review the many times that Pharaoh supposedly changed his mind-- nor shall I pretend that the ...

... was troubled by Hazael, king of Syria, who came and took Gath and 'set his face to go up to Jerusalem'. Like Hezekiah was to do some centuries later, holed up in Jerusalem and surrounded by much stronger forces, Joash paid off his adversaries with the treasures of the holy city. II Kings 13 records how Israel under Jehoahaz was delivered into the hand of Hazael, king of Syria, but then: 'And the Lord gave Israel a saviour, so that they went out from under the hand of the Syrians; and the children of Israel dwelt in their tents, as beforetime.' [II Kings 13:5 The Bible fails to record the name or nationality of this 'saviour' but a hint of it may be had from the unusual Hebrew word used. Could it have been Shoshenq I, who restored order in Philistia and the ascent to Jerusalem, and who reconquered the fallen cities of the Northern Kingdom? This idea has already been published in Centuries of Darkness. It would seem, therefore, that the Rohl and ...

... also the territory in Sicily, with the territory in Cilicia, for he says that Typhon lies beneath Aetna: 'Once he dwelt in a far-famed Cilician cavern; now, however, his shaggy breast is o'er-pressed by the sea-girt shores above Cymae and by Sicily.' And again, 'round about him lies Aetna with her haughty fetters,' and again, 'but it was father Zeus that once amongst the Arimi, by necessity, alone of the gods, smote monstrous Typhon of the fifty heads.' But some understand that the Syrians are Arimi, who are now called the Arimaeans, and that the Cilicians in Troy, forced to migrate, settled again in Syria and cut off for themselves what is now called Cilicia. Callisthenes says that the Arimi, after whom the neighbouring mountains are called Arima, are situated near Mt. Calycadnus and the promontory of Sarpedon near the Corycian cave itself. [12 Though formerly called Typhon, its name [of the Orontes; MAS was changed to that of Orontes, the man who built a bridge across it. ...

... . He also states that knotwork interlacing was "peculiar to the Pictish School of Celtic Art," and that Pictish key patterns were similar to key patterns "found in the Ukraine and Yugoslavia dating from 20,000 BC to 15,000," but not like classical Greek key patterns or frets. Borders and panels of interlacing "are to be found in the art of most peoples surrounding the Mediterranean, the Black and Caspian Seas. Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Moors, Persians, Turks, Arabs, Syrians, Hebrews, and North African tribes have used interlacing." According to Bain, "the finest achievement of knotwork interlacing are by the Pictish School," and that "interlacing humans, animals, birds, and reptiles each with interlacing top-knots were developed in East Pictland and Ireland to migrate at a later date to Scandinavia to become a decadent art." Dave Replies:... I am highly skeptical of the author's interpretation. In all cases I can think of, enduring design elements trace to sacred activity, ...
25. Thutmose III: A Different Perspective [Aeon Journal $]
... Damascus, and extracting tribute from as far south as Tyre, Sidon and Gubla. There is no evidence that Shalmaneser captured these cities. Thus it is extremely difficult to argue that this is the period of the el-Amarna correspondence. In 844, the Battle of Ramoth Gilead was won by a coalition of Judah and Israel. Jehu was anointed in the war camp at Ramoth Gilead and he immediately dispatched his two rivals, Jehoram and Ahaziah. In 842, Jehu was eventually forced to pay tribute to Assyria, but it was the Syrians whom the coalition had fought at Ramoth Gilead. Payment of tribute to Assyria would therefore indicate that the Assyrians were the real force behind Hazael of Damascus-- he who "cut short Israel." There thus appears to be good evidence that Shalmaneser had not lost interest in Palestine, at least as far as tribute was concerned. The year 838 saw the last visit by Shalmaneser to the area. His wars were not yet over, but he was by then concentrating on the north and western localities. It would appear ...

... Chaldeans, (3) and Manda is the name of Saturn. (4) The Phoenicians regarded El-Saturn as their chief deity; Eusebius informs us that El, a name used also in the Bible as a word for God, was the name of Saturn. (5) The different names for God in the Bible reflect the process of going through the many ages in which one planet. superceded another and was again superceded by the next one in the celestial war. El was the name of Saturn: Adonis of the Syrians, the bewailed deity, was also, like Osiris, the planet Saturn; but in the period of the contest between two major planets, Adonai, which means ? my lords ? became the appellative of the dual gods; then, with the victory of Jupiter, it came to be applied to him alone; thus Adonai and also Zedek was the name of Jupiter, and in the days of the patriarch Abraham, the cult of Jupiter was prominent in Jerusalem of the high priest Melchizedek (my king is Zedek) ...

... Jerusalem to her honor, were in memory and in thankfulness for the miracle she performed for their ancestors: Therefore the women of Jerusalem regarded the prohibition of this usage by the king Josiah and probably also by his son Zedekiah, under the influence of Jeremiah, as an offense for which their temple was destroyed; they went into refuge in Egypt, when the other remnants of the people were carried into Exile in Babylonia. The custom of bringing bread (flour) and honey to the queen of heaven was practiced also by the Syrians in the second century before the present era, as Lucian tells in his book De Dea Syria. And in Greece, on the spring feast of libations of flour and honey were poured into a crevice in the ground, in memory of the flood of Deukalion, in which the population of Greece was destroyed almost to the last; this flood of Deukalion, according to tradition conserved by the fathers of the Church, occurred in the days of the Exodus (Eusebius) Also in the Western Hemisphere the spring feast in honor ...

... the chief, with the same word meaning a thousand, and thus a correction of the text is required in the story of twenty-seven thousands killed by the wall of Aphek. 124. Ahab was faithful to the Egyptian protectorate. Ben Hadad, supported by Shalmanassar, inspired Mesha to revolt. 125. The capture of Ben Hadad and a covenant signed between him and the King of Samaria are events also related in the Letters. 126. The sieges of Samaria, the negotiation about sending Egyptian detachments, and the flight of the Syrians at the spreading of a rumor about the arrival of the Egyptian troops, can also be read in the Letters. 127. King Ahab was not killed at Ramoth in Gilead, but merely wounded. He survived Jehoshaphat by two years. The version 2 Kings 3, 2 is erroneous, and the rival version 2 Kings 1, 17 is correct. 128. Many events ascribed by the Scriptures to Jehoram, son of Ahab, or to the undefined ? king of Israel ?, happened in the days of Ahab. ...

... . (24) The Phoenicians regarded El-Saturn as their chief deity; Eusebius informs us that El, a name used also in the Bible as a name for God, was the name of Saturn. (25) In Persia Saturn was known as Kevan or Kaivan. (26) The different names for God in the Bible reflect the process of going through the many ages in which one planet superseded another and was again superseded by the next one in the celestial war. El was the name of Saturn; Adonis of the Syrians, the bewailed deity, was also, like Osiris, the planet Saturn; but in the period of the contest between the two major planets, Jupiter and Saturn, the apellative of the dual gods became Adonai, which means ? my lords ?; then, with the victory of Jupiter, it came to be applied to him alone.

... be quoted. (29) (i) In the late reign of Mursilis II, 26+ years, Syria once again broke out in revolt, and on this occasion Amurru was involved. (30) A revolt was deemed an act breaking the oath of fealty that bound both parties to the relevant treaty of vassalage, i.e., the recognition, temporary or otherwise, of another party, whether freely or under coercion. On such occasions the vassal prince was summarily replaced. There is no need to assume that the Syrians were in actual revolt against the Hittites, for which there is no evidence, but we may assume tribute had been paid to a foreign power. The dates agree very well with the campaigns of Adad Nirari III, variously given as 805, 802, and 796 B.C. He claimed the tribute of Hatti, Amurru, Tyre, Sidon, Israel, Edom, and Philistia, and on two occasions, that of Damascus. In Ugarit sources it is revealed (31) that on the death of Aziru of Amurru ( ...
