This book dissects 6.000 years of history. Like peeling an onion we traverse through different layers: physics, history, geopolitics, economics, cultural aspects, and finally religion. The world’s story harmonizes ancient wisdom from the Torah with modern historical and scientific discoveries. This bridge of the past with the future is the key to revealing what has been hidden before our eyes all along. The novelty of this work has been the creation of a new perspective, not only by projecting the patterns of past history into the present but by trying to place the events in their total context by examining not only the political and economic aspects as is commonly done, but by bringing in the cultural and biblical insight as well. The result is that not only will we see history differently, but also the bible. This harmonization opens up a truly unique and revealing perspective, a new Big Picture, which provides an explanation of how and why we arrived at the situation in which we now find ourselves.

How the Bible Begins: A Sociological Study uses a Dramaturgical Approach, borrowed from Erving Goffman. This theatrical metaphor has readers imagining society like a play in five acts: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. The curtain goes up in Genesis to an empty, dark stage that, shortly afterwards, has its first performers appear—Adam, and then Eve. The foundation of this book rests on six fundamental questions which are answered within its pages: who, what, when, where, why, and how. Readers learn how many people populate each biblical book, each book’s theme, when events took place, where action happened, what each book’s purpose was, and how each book was composed. These books chronicled the passage of travelers who first departed Mesopotamia in search of the promised land, and later they left Egypt after four hundred years of slavery. Guided by God, these people formed a nation out of these epic journeys.

The Bible says that there was a beginning of things, and that there will be an end. Near the end we will see a hero and a villain arise, the son of God will battle the son of Satan. The prophecies in the Bible have a great deal to say about this, but one prophecy has been overlooked... until now. "I will explain to you the mystery of the beast who once was, now is not, and yet will come. This calls for a mind with wisdom (Revelation 17: 7- 9)." Here we are told that the Beast, the son of Satan, once lived, but at one time he was not alive, and that he would live again. The Beast will seem to recover from a fatal wound (Revelation 13: 3). Not a nearly fatal wound. He will seem to recover from death! In the end times he will be seen to rise from the grave in imitation of Jesus Christ. Who was the Beast? But more importantly, why is that mysterious fraternity of Freemasons preparing to come to his aid? We will examine their own writings and rituals to confirm that they are devoted to the Beast who once was.

This study considers the historical, cultural, and literary significance of some of the most important Ancient Near East (ANE) texts that illuminate the Hebrew Bible. Christopher B. Hays provides primary texts from the Ancient Near East with a comparison to literature of the Hebrew Bible to demonstrate how Israel's Scriptures not only draw from these ancient contexts but also reshape them in a unique way. Hays offers a brief introduction to comparative studies, then lays out examples from various literary genres that shed light on particular biblical texts. Texts about ANE law collections, treaties, theological histories, prophecies, ritual texts, oracles, prayers, hymns, laments, edicts, and instructions are compared to corresponding literature in the Pentateuch, Prophets, and Writings of the Hebrew Bible. The book includes summaries to help instructors and students identify key points for comparison. By considering the literary and historical context of other literature, students will come away with a better understanding of the historical, literary, and theological depth of the Hebrew Bible.

Everyone in the world is familiar with the Great Pyramid in Egypt, but only a few realize it was ordained by the hand of God. The prophet Isaiah tells us it's an altar and a witness for the one true God. Josephus, the Jewish historian, says it was built by the children of Seth before the great flood. Egyptian legend calls it the "Pillar of Enoch" after the Patriarch who walked with God. Early Jewish writings, Egyptian hieroglyphs, and ancient historians provide clues to the secrets within the Great Pyramid. But first you must ask yourself, what is Truth? Are you willing to set aside your preconceptions to understand the Truth? The Middle of the Earth: Genesis in Egypt reveals astonishing truths that can transform our world and beckon all who read it to the call of Christ. Western civilization has pushed God out of the picture and filled us with false ideas. Author Allen Austin urges you to reject the false absurdities and embrace our true history. It lies in the middle of the earth.

A study on Freemasonry, Illuminati, Esoteric and Anagogical developments, extending to the two lost continents of Mu and Atlantis to the Maya, Uyghur and the Egyptian civilizations, Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Where are the roots of monotheism? Who were the first monotheistic believers? Where are the roots of today's heavenly religions? This research is about a doctrine that has deeply influenced the belief systems since the dark periods of human history within the context of processes of historical development of esoteric beliefs. In addition to the birth of monotheistic religions, the esoteric teachings that enable the rational thought system to reach the present and allow us to be in the Era of Reason, reveal that God is love and not fear, and that the power of intuition is led by reason. The greatest deficiency of our time is that this great love is not boldly revealed. The real purpose of this work is to bring this sublime expression of love out of its narrow frames to reach out to the masses.
