Welcome back, last week I briefly mentioned the drainage system for the roof that was decorated in an ornate manor. You can see on the outer walls of Hathors Temple, these beautiful lion sculptures with extensive heiroglyph. The water that would collect on the roof of the Temple would drain between the paws of the lions. When you are on the roof, you see that these drains are all positioned at the base of a Ka Door. Flowing water, false doors, lions in Egypt? Is this symbolism that’s flying over my head? Or is this just relative decoration for the period and culture? Would there have been extensive rainfall just 2100 years ago in Qena, Egypt? Enough rainfall to justify this level of architectural design?

The Residue Thereof He Maketh A god. Isaiah 44

The Residue Thereof He Maketh A god. Isaiah 44

God is the make of Israel as a man is a maker of a graven image. God will redeem Israel and forgive them of their sins and man worships a burnt left-over chunk of wood.
