THE SCROLL OF HEAVEN

 

 

(The original signification of the constellations

according to ancient Semitic star names.)

 

 

 

 

 

Act 1: Yeshúas first coming

 

I. The constellation of the Virgin (Virgo) with its bright blue star Spica reveals Yeshúa as the Seed of the Woman, born by a pure virgin. „Behold, the virgin shall conceive and shall bring forth a Son, and she shall call His name Immanuel ‚God with us‘“ (Is. 7:14; Gen. 3:15.)

 

The constellation Coma Berenices, "the hair," expresses in one word the secret of the overcoming life of Yeshúa, how He lived so holy, without any sin. (Cf. the secret of Samson's strength, Judges 16:17, 19; Num. 6:5, 7; Song of Songs 7:5, 5:11; I. Cor. 11:1‑16; John 5:19; 8:29.)

 

The lowly constellation of Centaurus shows us Yeshúa, the King of the Jews, humbly riding on an ass. Palm branches are spread around Him. Centaurus means "pierced," because He was pierced on the Cross. (Zech. 9:9; John 12:13; Ps. 22:17; Zech. 12:10; John 19:34‑37.)

 

The constellation Boötes "He who Comes," high up on heaven, shows us our glorious Messiah, whom we despised. He is the Lord and Keeper of the Heavens, to whom all power in heaven and on earth has been given. He will come again in glory and majesty, clothed with a garment dipped in Blood:
