Re: [orion-list Trinity before Cristianity?]
I am not familiar with the works that you quoted, however, I do
know of a concept where the Father is Jehovah (God), the Holy
Spirit is the Shekinah, Jehovah's wife (the Goddess, the Mother)
and the Son symbolizes the heir to the throne. It has been said
that the Messianic/Davidic line started with the Jehovah and the
Shekinah and this is why Joseph, Mary, and Jesus are known as the
Holy Family, since they were descendants of King David himself and
Jesus was hailed as the Messiah (or the David). It seems to be all
You might want to check into the Babylonian Genesis, which begins
with a brief reference to the time when nothing existed except the
divine parents, Apsu and Ti-amat (accents omitted since they are
not on my keyboard!), and their son Mummu existed. This story
supposedly predates the mainstream, Biblical account of Genesis
but it seems to follow the same theme..Father, Mother and Heir.
I hope this helps...I know it's not much.
