Names of apostles and gem stones of Heavenly Jerusalem.
Information of this page can be interesting in a context of astrology and divinity or theology, and also in mineralogy and jeweler art. Because seminary students or theologians can realize personal characteristics of twelve apostles, and jewelers can understand values and qualities of jewels or precious gem stones according to parities with zodiac signs and planets within astrological circle.
The biblical chronological cycle is similar to Chinese cyclic calendar of twelve
zodiacal animals. Because chronological basis of biblical cycle is formed of
five spatial spheres according to which hexagrams of the Book of Changes i-ching
correspond with twelve zodiacal animals in the Chinese calendar, as it has been
told on 3rd and 4th pages in this section of website.
But chronologic table of biblical cycle has essential difference, because hexagrams i-ching in five spatial spheres have other geometrical order or otherwise to tell another zodiacal positions rather than within traditional Chinese calendar, that is shown on charts.
|Dark figures on charts correspond with serial numbers
of hexagrams i-ching according to consecutive order in the Chinese Book of Changes.
White figures in dark circles specify numerical values according to cells or mathematical positions of hexagrams i-ching in the magic square.
Also charts show physiognomic symbols or images of facial emotions which correspond with Chinese hexagrams.
Look information about serial numbers and numerical values of sixty four hexagrams of the Chinese Book of Changes i-ching on 3rd page in this section of website.
Thirds of astrological circle in each sphere correspond with physiognomic
symbols which have four versions of emotional expressions of three levels of human face.
For example, first third of astrological circle in the fifth spatial sphere, namely zodiacal signs Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Crab correspond with physiognomic symbols which correspond to hexagrams i-ching with serial numbers 45, 32, 42, 26 or numerical values 46, 57, 33, 54, that corresponds to four versions of emotional expressions of three levels on human face.
Eyebrows - 45 sad - 32 open - 42 quiet - 26 joyful.
Eyes - 45 joyful - 32 quiet - 42 open - 26 sad.
Mouth - 45 open - 32 joyful - 42 sad - 26 quiet.
And also each third of astrological circle in other spheres contains physiognomic symbols which have four versions of emotional expressions of three levels of human face, that is the principle or rule according to which consecutive order of hexagrams i-ching within calendar table of biblical chronological cycle is organized, as it is possible to see on the following chart.
|The shown chart is equivalent to the image on 4th page
in this section of website, namely figures mean serial numbers, and
lines specify symmetric geometrical parities or interrelations
of paired hexagrams i-ching in five spheres.
Pairs of hexagrams in four spheres are interconnected by geometrical parities within the circle.
Pairs of hexagrams in the third sphere have only internal parities which are not connected with other spheres within the circle.
Detail parities of physiognomic symbols of human facial emotions and hexagrams of the Chinese Book of Changes i-ching with the biblical chronological cycle are shown on following page, and also in the calendar.
Hexagrams in the context of biblical chronological cycle are compared to names of
apostles, that differs from the Chinese cyclic calendar where symbols of the
Book of Changes i-ching correspond with denominations of twelve zodiacal animals.
Names of apostles are specified in the New Testament in Gospels of Matthew 10th, Mark 3rd, Luke 6th chapters, also Acts of apostles 1st chapter.
Simon who is named as Peter and his brother Andrew.
James son of Zebedee and his brother John to them he gave the name Boanerges, which means Sons of Thunder.
Philip and Bartholomew.
Matthew the tax collector and Thomas who was named the Didymus or "twin".
James son of Alphaeus, and Thaddeus.
Simon who was named the Zealot, and Matthias who is chosen on a lot instead of Judas Iscariot.
It is possible to assume that names and characters of twelve apostles correspond with astrological signs of zodiac how is shown on the chart.
Signs of zodiac according to rules of astrology are symmetric within
astrological circle, that on the chart is shown by dark lines.
Leo and Crab - Thaddeus and James son of Alphaeus.
Virgo and Gemini - Matthew and Thomas.
Libra and Taurus - Bartholomew and Philip.
Scorpio and Aries - Simon Peter and Andrew.
Sagittarius and Pisces - Simon Zealot and Matthias.
Capricorn and Aquarius - James and John sons of Zebedee.
Latin letters on the chart designate astrological planets which dominate in zodiacal signs: SL - Sun, LN - Moon, ME - Mercury, VE - Venus, MA - Mars, UP - Jupiter, SA - Saturn, UR - Uranus, NE - Neptune, PL - Pluto, PR - Proserpine, XR - Chiron.
Simon Peter corresponds with the zodiac sign Scorpio. As keys from the
Kingdom of Heaven are given to this apostle, that corresponds to astrological
characteristics of the planet Pluto which symbolizes posthumous or afterlife
world and dominates in zodiac sign Scorpio.
Andrew is the brother of Simon Peter and consequently corresponds with zodiac sign Aries which is symmetric to Scorpio.
The zodiac sign Aries has dominating planet Mars which from the view point of astrology symbolizes superiority or aspiration to be the first, and consequently Andrew was the first apostle who was called by the Christ.
Phillip was the third apostle who has been called after Andrew and Simon Peter, and consequently he corresponds with zodiac sign Taurus which within astrological circle is the following after Aries. Namely Aries is the beginning of astrological circle and corresponds to Andrew, and also is symmetric to Scorpio which corresponds to Simon Peter. And Taurus is following zodiac sign after Aries and consequently corresponds to apostle Phillip who has been called after Andrew and Simon Peter which have been called by the first.
Bartholomew was the relative or the friend of apostle Phillip, and consequently he corresponds with zodiac sign Libra. Because zodiac signs Libra and Taurus are symmetric according to rules of astrology.
Researchers of Bible and New Testament believe that original name of this apostle was Nathaniel. And in essence researchers believe that Bartholomew has been called by the fourth as Nathaniel who appears in the Gospel according to John as being introduced to Christ by Phillip. And Jesus characterizes him as "Here is a man in whom there is no deception" or "Here originally the Israeli in whom there is no slyness".
Thomas is the apostle who was named the twin or Didymus, and consequently he corresponds with the one-nominal zodiac sign Gemini.
And also apostle Thomas was called as Doubting because he has not believed in revival of the Christ. But Thomas believed when Jesus let see and touch his wounds, that corresponds to astrological characteristics of the planet Mercury which dominates in zodiac sign Gemini and symbolizes logic perception of world reality.
Matthew was the tax collector and then became the apostle, and consequently he corresponds with the zodiac sign Virgo. Because this zodiac sign together with Gemini symbolizes logic perception of world reality, and also commercial and financial relations of people from the view point of astrology.
Matthew the tax collector and Thomas Didymus form pair in texts of Gospels, namely they are mentioned together in lists of apostles, and also zodiac signs Gemini and Virgo are symmetric.
Thaddeus or Lebbaeus son of Alphaeus corresponds with the zodiac sign Leo. Because the nickname Lebbaeus is equivalent to the animal name of Lion which personifies this zodiac sign.
In the gospel from Luke there is mention on Judas of James instead of Thaddeus, but among researchers of Bible and New Testament there is opinion that original name of this apostle was Judas son of Alphaeus. Namely he was the brother of James son of Alphaeus, but he is named the Thaddeus or Lebbaeus.
James son of Alphaeus is brother of Thaddeus and consequently he corresponds with zodiac sign Crab. Because zodiac signs Crab and Leo are symmetric according to rules of astrology.
Researchers of Bible and New Testament believe that James and Thaddeus or Judas sons of Alphaeus were tax collectors, but actually brothers could not pay taxes and have lost property, and then became apostles of the Christ.
The tax collector there was apostle Matthew, but brothers James and Judas sons of Alphaeus could not pay taxes.
Brothers James and John sons of Zebedee correspond with zodiac signs Capricorn and Aquarius where the planet Uranus dominates which is a symbol of thunder or electricity in the context of astrology .
Therefore apostles James and John sons of Zebedee are named as children of thunder or Boanerges.
Simon Zelotes or Kananites corresponds with the zodiac sign Sagittarius. Because the name Zelotes or Zealot means zealous or radical observance of traditional religious norms, that there corresponds to astrological characteristics of the planet Jupiter which dominates in Sagittarius. And also the name Kananites means a cane measuring rod for measurement of geometrical sizes, that too symbolizes observance of traditional laws and religious norms.
Matthias corresponds with the sign of zodiac Pisces which is symmetric to Sagittarius.
Judas Iscariot who became the traitor should correspond with zodiac sign of Pisces, and apostle Matthias has been chosen as a result of cast lots.
Look additional information about twelve apostles on pages of other website www.wordgame.64g.ru on the fifth page in section which has the name: signs of gods.
Revelation to Saint John has information that names of apostles correspond with jewels or precious gem stones which form wall foundations of Heavenly Jerusalem, that can be compared to twelve signs of zodiac, as shown in the chart.
|Letters XZO on the chart designate signs of zodiac to
which there correspond precious and semiprecious gem stones or otherwise
to tell natural minerals which are versions of quartz, chalcedony and beryl.
X - quartz. Z - chalcedony. O - beryl.
Pay attention that the shown chart considers not all existing precious and semiprecious gem stones or otherwise to tell natural minerals, because signs of zodiac correspond to jewels which are specified as walls of Heavenly Jerusalem in Revelation to Saint John in the King James Version, and also in Russian translation of the New testament of the Bible.
In particular there is no nephrite or greenstone which from the view point of mineralogy is a variety of calcium. Or there is no turquoise which is phosphate of copper. Also there are no some other jewels or natural minerals of precious and semiprecious gem stones.
Aries - jasper - Andrew.
Jasper as precious stone is a variety of quartz and chalcedony.
Taurus - sapphire - Phillip.
Sapphire and ruby as gemstones are versions of corundum.
Gemini - chalcedony - Thomas.
Chalcedony as gemstone is a variety of quartz.
Mineral versions of chalcedony and quartz are sardius or carnelian, chrysoprase, heliotrope, agate, aventurine, onyx, jasper.
Crab - emerald - James son of Alphaeus.
Emerald as precious gemstone is a variety of beryl.
Leo - sardonyx or onyx - Thaddeus.
Onyx as precious gem stone is a variety of chalcedony and quartz.
Sardonyx or black onyx as gem stone is a variety of carnelian.
Virgo - sardius or carnelian - Matthew.
Carnelian or cornelian as precious stone is a variety of chalcedony.
Libra - chrysolite or chrysoberyl - Bartholomew.
Mineral version of chrysoberyl is alexandrite.
Scorpio - beryl - Simon Peter.
Mineral versions of beryl are emerald and aquamarine.
Beryl as gemstone is a variety of quartz.
Sagittarius - topaz - Simon Zealot.
Topaz as precious stone is a variety of quartz.
Topaz forms joint crystals with fluorite and tourmaline.
Capricorn - chrysoprasus or chrysoprase - James son of Zebedee.
Chrysoprase as gemstone is a variety of quartz and chalcedony.
Aquarius - jacinth - John son of Zebedee.
Jacinth as precious gem stone is a variety of zircon.
Zircon is a mineral version of quartz.
Pisces - amethyst - Matthias.
Amethyst as gemstone is a variety of quartz.
It is possible to assume that walls of Heavenly Jerusalem consist of crystal or crystalline solid which is a variety of quartz. Because from the view point of mineralogy all jewels and natural minerals or precious and semiprecious stones of twelve foundations of Heavenly Jerusalem are varieties of quartz, except for sapphire and ruby which are versions of corundum or crystalline form of aluminum oxide.
Namely Revelation to Saint John has information that walls of Heavenly Jerusalem are constructed of jasper.
"And the building of the wall was of jasper, and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass".
But this jewel gem or natural mineral also is specified as precious stone of the first foundation, and consequently it is possible to assume that original building material for walls of Heavenly Jerusalem should be crystal or crystalline solid which symbolized spiritual clarity in ancient civilizations, and which from the view point of mineralogy is quartz.
Also it is possible to assume that central point of astrological circle and Heavenly Jerusalem should correspond to ideal stone or diamond which is not named in Revelation to Saint John among other precious jewels. But diamond can symbolize Glory of God which shines all holy city as a stone most precious. Because diamond is a variety of carbon which is the basis of physical life and organic matter. Or otherwise to tell that diamond is a mystical crystal of immortality and eternal life.
