(New Post will correct problems, date TBD - sgw 7/2/2013)
The fundamental problem with the description above is my lack of understanding of the impact of the reading of the stars and constellations. which was closely associated with Judaism, Zoraostorism, and Christianity. The eclipses of 29 CE, 59 CE, 71 CE, 118 CE, and possibly even 197 CE, all played a role in the development of theology. The interpretations of these events is hinted throughout the New Testament. I will do a blog post in July on the various references to the stars, moon, sun, and planets and show which event each applies. It is an interpretive swamp, but we have to wade into it if we wish to understand the why and how Christianity was born.
