The Promised Seed of the Woman
So why start here? Believe it or not — one reason is that ancient mystery called the Sphinx. For untold centuries men have said that the secret of the universe lay in solving the riddle of the Sphinx, which is found in so many different ancient cultures. There is not just that ONE Sphinx in Egypt. There are actually many representations of this ancient symbol, a two-natured beast with the body of a lion and the head of a woman. That’s right — a woman! The one in Egypt DOES have the head of a man, but it is not in agreement with most sphinxes found around the world. (See picture below)
There was one culture that we know of that put the Zodiac and the Sphinx together — the Egyptians. Check out the figure below. It’s a copy of a tracing made by Signor Bossi before the turn of the 20th Century. The real tracing, which is held in the British museum, came from the Temple of Esneh in Egypt. This portion of the tracing (it was actually a complete Zodiac) shows a part of the circle where Leo ends and Virgo begins. Right there inbetween the two is a Sphinx. Could it be that the sphinx is nothing more than a way to remember to always begin the story at Virgo and end it at Leo? Perhaps. It does, at least, give us a clue where to start a journey that will lead to the One who is Power and Wisdom.
The Big Picture
Here is the picture of a virgin, holding a branch with four sections in her right hand. Jesus is predicted by the Bible prophets as the Branch of David, the Branch of My Servant, the Branch of Man, and the Branch of Jehovah. In the virgin’s left hand is an ear of grain. He is Lord of the Harvest.
The Gospel Truth
The good news of God’s love for man begins with a promise to a young virgin named Mary. Never touched by a man, she is to be the mother of the long-awaited Messiah. From her womb comes the One who will be perfect man, for he will have no inherited sin nature. Through Him, the justice of God will be fully satisfied as He gives His own life as a substitute for man.
