Darlison, Bill


"Who is the man in the factually inconsistent Gospel stones? And who is the man who makes a brief appearance carrying a jar of water? This extraordinary study by Unitarian minister Bill Darlison suggests that Jesus never existed historically; he was simply a representation of an astrological theology. In The Gospel and the Zodiac, Reverend Darlison demonstrates that the Gospel of Mark - considered the primary document of Christianity - is deliberately structured around the signs of the zodiac. Darlison argues that the Gospel was originally an esoteric, rather than a historical text, and that its stories were never intended to be interpreted in a literal sense. Rather, they are dramatic representations of stages in spiritual development, and repositories of arcane wisdom." "This argument shows how Christianity relates to other world faiths and as such is deeply ecumenical. It aims to rediscover Christianity's dynamic character by interpreting the Gospels in the light of the culture in which they were created, rather than viewing them through the distorting lens of contemporary prejudices. It is a radical new interpretation of the Gospels, and makes an important contribution to the contemporary debate about the existence and significance of Jesus."--BOOK JACKET.Darlison, Bill is the author of 'The Gospel and the Zodiac', published 2008 under ISBN 9781590200377 and ISBN 1590200373.
