History or mystery?
Ancient records researcher Karola Kautz observed that archeologists often unearth clay tablets or scrolls that are broken and incomplete. Yet these ancient writings, even when without author identification, tend to claim high value.
How does one judge the accuracy of such records? Were they made by wise and virtuous prophets who recorded only truth, or by paid scribes who wrote to please their kings?
No one seems to question the difference between these two possibilities.
Kautz’s ground-breaking discovery of the ancient symbolic language addresses this problem. She learned that all ancient texts written by inspired or enlightened authors were written in symbolism. Ancient symbolism was the language of the educated class, the language of science that explained materiality as well as the invisible/spiritual aspects of life.
Kautz believed the Bible’s poor reputation among historians and scientists is due to ignorance of this universally-used language of symbolism.
We’ve been without a well-informed interpretation of this symbolism for centuries and the literal assignment of meaning has turned valuable biblical history into myths and mysteries.
When the Bible’s symbolic language is understood, its value as accurate historical and scientific information is indisputable.
The course in the ancient system of symbolism raises our awareness of our past, informs us about how we fell so deeply into ignorance, and inspires us with the truth about our capacity to create a new world.
