Visual archetypes are the DNA of culture. In artefacts and artworks, where archaeo-astronomers see ancient star maps, archaeologists see cultural traditions, and anthropologists see initiation secrets, appear a standard sequence of types, on an axial grid. Structural archaeology uses constellations as myth maps to find the structure of our perception. All inspired artists, in the Stone, Ice, Bronze and Iron Ages; Babylonians, Egyptians, Chinese, Celts, Mayans, Vikings and moderns, subconsciously express mindprint, our eternal artefact. The sixteen clusters of attributes are demonstrated in 200 examples of famous art and rock art works from every continent and culture. Archetypes are statistically proven, and their 'camouflage' is explained in terms of archaeology, anthropology, art history, psychology, philosophy, archaeo-astronomy, esoterica and spirituality. Readers will never look at art, artists or culture as a cumulative, learned or evolved craft again.
While Ehrman seems oblivious to the import of Jesus's words, Caiaphas and the
council that condemned Christ were not! Far from saying that the end of the world
was at hand, Jesus employed the Old Testament symbolism of clouds to warn ...

Hank Hanegraaff reveals the code to Revelation. Breaking the code of the book of Revelation has become an international obsession. The result, according to Hank Hanegraaff, has been rampant misreading of Scripture, bad theology, and even bad politics and foreign policy. Hanegraaff argues that the key to understanding the last book of the Bible is the other sixty-five books of the Bible — not current events or recent history and certainly not any complicated charts. The Apocalypse Code offers sane answers to some very controversial questions: What does it mean to take the book of Revelation (and the rest of the Bible) literally? Who are the “Antichrist” and the “Great Whore of Babylon,”and what is the real meaning of “666”? How does our view of the end times change the way we think about the crisis in the Middle East? Are two-thirds of all Jews really headed for an apocalyptic holocaust? The Apocalypse Code is a call to understand what the Bible really says about the end times and why how we understand it matters so much in today’s world. “Provocative and passionate, this fascinating book is a must-read for everyone who’s interested in end-times controversies.” — Lee Strobel, Author, The Case for the RealJesus “This book is a withering and unrelenting critique of the positions of apocalyptic enthusiasts such as Tim LaHaye. Every fan of theLeft Behindseries should read this book. The fog will clear, and common sense will return to our reading of the Bible.” — Gary M. Burge, Professor of New Testament, Wheaton College and Graduate School

This book, I believe, for the first time reveals knowledge that has been buried in the Bible under a secret code. There have been many attempts to uncover this code, and all previous attempts have contributed in a positive way to this writing. The book is my personal contribution to improvement of mankind through the acknowledgment of the truth and the defeat of falsehood. I am not, though, writing this with rose-colored glasses. There will always be those who hate the Truth for personal worldly gains, those who take comfort in falsehood, those who would follow blindly what their ancestors believed (true or false), those who worship at the altar of their base desires, and those who benefit from evil in the world. The ultimate victory of Truth over falsehood is with God Almighty, and I wish that the reader is guided to the Truth. This book is also a way to thank God Almighty for guiding me away from falsehood, and this book is for others like me.

Beginning late in the Old Testament period and continuing for the next six hundred years, the Jewish high priests were often the most important members of Jewish society. They not only possessed religious authority but also exercised political control. This book gathers and assesses the surviving evidence about each of the fifty-one men who served as high priest from about 515 BCE until approximately 70 CE when the temple in Jerusalem was destroyed.

Blue Magic, the latest designer drug linked to a rash of overdoses, might explain the needle mark on the arm of a young woman found dead in her Kansas City apartment. But when Star reporter Rich Azadian digs deeper, the clues point to a far more explosive story: MaryLee Stock was a special protégée of evangelical megapastor and power broker Cobalt Becker, who is poised to deliver his followers and the presidency to a firebrand right-wing senator in the next election. When Azadian sets out to prove that MaryLee’s death was no accident and she may have been carrying Becker’s genetically enhanced baby, the stakes become life itself. In 2023 America—bankrupt, violently divided by the culture wars, and beholden to archrival China—the rules of the game are complicated. With the danger mounting, the dead bodies of young women piling up, Chinese agents circling, and the US Department of National Competitiveness moving in to quash his investigation, Azadian’s only option is to go rogue, assemble a team of brilliant misfits like himself, and begin the fight of his life to find out who is killing these women and why, and if any others like them may still be alive.

Here is the story we are all familiar with, turned upside down and inside out, revealing events that force us to rethink our entire understanding of the story we thought we knew. The Caiaphas Letters looks at those years in Jesus's life that changed the world and presents them from a perspective that is both unique and crucially revealing. What really happened that night when Jesus, messianic claimant for an oppressed people, was taken into custody and crucified the next day on Procurator Pontius Pilate's command? After so many centuries can an answer truly be achieved. The answer is yes, especially when the living memories of Caiaphas, High Priest of the Jerusalem Temple are kept alive by one of his descendants. The Caiaphas Letters is one of the most important books of our times. Once and for all there are answers for questions that have persisted for over two millennia. The death of Jesus was not the ending but only the beginning of the battle between Procurator and High Priest as each leveled charges against the other for seeding the devastation and destruction that occurred in Judaea and Samaria during those last few years of Tiberius's reign. For years they presented their case before the Senate in Rome, only to raise a further question as to whether the crucifixion of one man could eventually bring about the downfall of an Empire? Now you are the jury about to make that decision based upon the evidence presented.

As the Roman-appointed high priest who had a hand in orchestrating Jesus's Crucifixion, Caiaphas secured his place in infamy alongside Pontius Pilate. Viewing Caiaphas as more than just a one-dimensional villain, Adele Reinhartz offers a thorough reconsideration of representations of Caiaphas in the Gospels and other ancient texts as well as in subsequent visual arts, literature, film, and drama. The portrait that emerges challenges long-held beliefs about this New Testament figure by examining the background of the high priesthood and exploring the relationships among the high priest, the Roman leadership, and the Jewish population. Reinhartz does not seek to exonerate Caiaphas from culpability in the Crucifixion, but she does expand our understanding of Caiaphas's complex religious and political roles in biblical literature and his culturally loaded depictions in ongoing Jewish-Christian dialogue.
