The name Saul and the latin word Sol, meaning ‘sun’ are practically the same word. Is it possible that what has been interpreted as ‘Sun Worship’ is actually symbolism for King Saul.
Anyone can find the connections that identify the history of the Saul with that of the Egyptian New Kingdom Dynasty by studying the scripture carefully. In fact, the scriptures do reveal that Saul’s sister, immediately after the death of Saul and his sons, married the’ King of all Judea. This meant that she was Queen of ‘all Judea’, including Jerusalem and David himself. Her name was Abyza and she was married to the Pharoah. Abyza is the same name that is described as the Beja tribe of Northern Africa. She is probably the person known as the Queen of Sheba, in a reversal of the syllables typical of Arabic, from Beja to Sheba.
A recent discovery about the trade routes between Denmark and the ancient civilizations in Egypt and Mesopotamia in the Bronze Age 3,400 years ago, has been made by the Danish-French research team from Moesgaard Museum in Aarhus, the National Museum of Denmark in Copenhagen, and Institut de Recherche sur les Archéomatériaux (IRAMAT) at Orléans, France.
Calling this the “Sun” cult of the Nordic Bronze Age, they are surprised to find Egyptian connections. I find that some liberty is taken with the interpretations of the symbols and that the Sun symbol may be misunderstood by these archaeologists. It is possible that the Sun Symbol refers to the Salic Tribes, and that the sun symbol worldwide is a play on the word Saul.
The analyses of grave finds revealed the first typical Egyptian cobalt glass to be discovered outside the Mediterranean area. The glass beads found in the grave originate from the same glass workshops that supplied the Egyptian Pharaoh. Tutankhamun took these with him to his grave in 1323 BC.
The old amber route to the countries in the Mediterranean thus now has a counterpart: cobalt glass route to the North. The investigations have shown that there was a trade connection to Egypt and Mesopotamia in the years 1400-1100 BC.
This time period corresponds to the Old Testament Books of Kings which details the split of the tribes between David and Saul. It is not stated clearly which of the tribes went one way as the Salic Tribes other than Benjamin of course; but it is clear that the Davidic tribes consist of the House of Judah and various Edomite, Canannite and Moabite ancestors as listed in scripture. The basic division of people that concerns Acadian history are the two tribes whose names are based on King David and King Saul.
A superficial reading will give you to think that David was unfairly pursued by Saul because Saul was jealous of him.
A close and careful reading of the Books of Kings and Samuel, especially if using an annotated study Bible, reveals a traitorous David, living with a band of thieves in a breach in the city wall, worming his way into the palace and inciting the children of Saul to traitorous actions against their father, and possibly homosexual love with the prince Jonathan.
It shows a David who is so untrustworthy that even the Philistines will not allow him to fight in their battles. It shows a David who demands protection money from the Israelites, who is an enemy to the Israelites from beginning to end, even while fearing and acknowledging the legitimacy of the anointed King Saul. Finally, the scriptures reveal a David whose army has all the power over him, a David who runs on foot away from his palace when threatened, the list of embarrassments goes on.
Playing on David’s credulity with fortune telling device, Nathan knows that David loves to hear this divination: 7:16 Your house and your kingdom shall be made sure for ever before you: your throne shall be established forever. 7:17 According to all these words, and according to all this vision, so did Nathan speak to David. 7:18 Then David the king went in, and sat before Yahweh;
No one ‘sits before Yahweh’ unless Yahweh is another name for the Sybil, the ancient source of divination that was forbidden to the Israelites.
It’s no wonder Jesus’ disciples were angry when the people called him ‘Son of David’. And no wonder Jesus made it clear that he was not a descendant of David, and in the same breath scolded the scribes for putting such nonsense in the scripture.
A deeper understanding reveals a story of repeated attempts to genocide or at least limit the population of the Tribe of Benjamin by David through his minions.
Then there are specific slanderous scriptural texts, made from portions lifted directly from the Jewish Talmud and inserted into the old testament that are designed to discredit Benjamite men.
The most notorious example of this is when the men of Sodom and Gomorrah who were supposedly Benjamites demanding entrance into Lot’s house. This is absurd because Lot was in Edomite territory, far to the South and East of Benjamin and the very enemies of the Benjamites. Therefore the men who were demanding entry into Lot’s house would have been Edomites of the tribe of Judah, not Benjamin.
There is a very interesting video about Ron Wyatt’s discovery of the remains of Sodom and Gomorrah, where even the windows of the buildings can still be seen. What seems to be mountains in the distance, when examined more closely, are actually the remains of huge buildings. What appears to be solid rock is actually compacted and fused human and building remains that are nothing but ashes that crumble in the hand. Bits of a rare type of brimstone are embedded in the ash.
Certain verses of the Quran mention the falsification of scripture concerning the cities of Sodom/S’Edom and Gomorrah and what Lot actually said that night of the destruction of the city.
The question that Lot really asked the homosexual Edomites was, “What is wrong with you that you want a man instead of a beautiful maiden like my daughter here for example?” This was mistranslated to have Lot offering them his daughter and the rest is a typically Talmudic distortion of the situation that I don’t care to repeat and it should be removed.
Kings 1-4, two books called Paralipomenon which are included in the Douay Rheims Bible, go into all the detail of the story of Saul and David. Not every bible has all four books, but they are all essential to understanding. The Douay Rheims does not contain the books of Samuel and scholars do agree that it is a corrupted text.
It is a fact that one of the practices of the Protestants that horrified the Catholics was the singing of the Psalms of David, though I haven’t been able to ascertain why that was.
The story of David and Saul begins long ago as tribal issues, but we can pick it up where Judges 21:23 states: “And the children of Benjamin…took away to themselves of those that led the dances, every one his wife and they went into their possession, building cities and dwelling in them. The children of Israel also returned by their tribes and families into their tabernacles [tents]. In those days there was not a king in Israel but everyone did that which seemed right to himself.”
One group stayed in tents, another built cities. This building of cities became Pergamom, which was Bergamon, which we know of as Benjamin. It is best known to us as Byzantium, or Abyssinia. It held together throughout the Roman Christian Empire and stretched from North Africa to the Constantinople and had Northerly trade routes that may have gone around the globe.
“But the servants of David struck of Benjamin, and of the men that were with Abner, three hundred and three score, who also died…
The Second Book of Samuel
The two books of Samuel are not included Catholic bibles, but since many people refer to it, let’s examine what it says.
1:1 It happened after the death of Saul, when David was returned from the slaughter of the Amalekites,
[to David, Amalakite is code word for the Israelite tribes that are not with the tribe of Judah. For more evidence of this, read on.]
a man came out of the camp from Saul, with his clothes torn, and earth on his head: and so it was, when he came to David, that he fell to the earth, and did obeisance. 1:3 David said to him, Where do you come from?
He said to him, I have escaped out of the camp of Israel. 1:4 David said to him, How did it go? Please tell me. He answered, The people have fled from the battle, and many of the people also have fallen and are dead; and Saul and Jonathan his son are dead also. 1:5 David said to the young man who told him,
How do you know that Saul and Jonathan his son are dead? 1:6 The young man who told him said, As I happened by chance on Mount Gilboa, behold, Saul was leaning on his spear; and behold, the chariots and the horsemen followed hard after him. 1:7 When he looked behind him, he saw me, and called to me. I answered, Here I am. 1:8
He said to me, Who are you? I answered him, I am an Amalekite.
I took the crown that was on his head, and the bracelet that was on his arm, and have brought them here to my lord. 1:11 Then David took hold on his clothes, and tore them; and likewise all the men who were with him: 1:12
and they mourned, and wept, and fasted until even, for Saul, and for Jonathan his son, and for the people of Yahweh, and for the house of Israel; because they were fallen by the sword. 1:13David said to the young man who told him, Where are you from? He answered, I am the son of a foreigner,
[foreign to David but not foreign to Saul, he’s already stated that he comes from the Israelite camp, that he is an Amalakite and therefore Amalekite is Israelite, translated roughly as Family of the Arch of God which would describe the family of King Saul. David kills him.]
How were you not afraid to put forth your hand to destroy Yahweh’s anointed? 1:15David called one of the young men, and said, Go near, and fall on him. He struck him, so that he died. 1:16 David said to him, Your blood be on your head; for your mouth has testified against you, saying,
I have slain Yahweh’s anointed.
- 1:19 Your glory, Israel, is slain on your high places!
- How the mighty have fallen!
- 1:20 Don’t tell it in Gath.
- Don’t publish it in the streets of Ashkelon,
- lest the daughters of the Philistines rejoice,
- lest the daughters of the uncircumcised triumph.
- 1:21 You mountains of Gilboa,
- let there be no dew nor rain on you, neither fields of offerings;
- For there the shield of the mighty was vilely cast away,
- The shield of Saul was not anointed with oil.
- 1:22 From the blood of the slain,
- from the fat of the mighty,
- Jonathan’s bow didn’t turn back.
- Saul’s sword didn’t return empty.
- 1:23 Saul and Jonathan were lovely and pleasant in their lives.
- In their death, they were not divided.
- They were swifter than eagles.
- They were stronger than lions.
- 1:24 You daughters of Israel, weep over Saul,
- who clothed you in scarlet delicately,
- who put ornaments of gold on your clothing.
- 1:25 How are the mighty fallen in the midst of the battle!
- Jonathan is slain on your high places.
- 1:26 I am distressed for you, my brother Jonathan.
- You have been very pleasant to me.
- Your love to me was wonderful,
- passing the love of women.
- 1:27 How are the mighty fallen,
- and the weapons of war perished!
Shall I go up into any of the cities of Judah?
[This passage describes David consulting a diviner, which is forbidden to Israelites. There is no precedent for this type of question being asked and answered except by a Sybil. How interesting that this is exactly what David accused Saul of having done and gave David justification for his own usurpation! This is classic.
In fact there is an ancient Gregorian Hymn which mentions this exact fact in a song about the Judgement day. What is seen on Judgement Day it asks, but David and Sybil and the testament of truth:
Dies iræ, dies illa, Solvet sæclum in favilla, Teste David cum Sibylla! Quantus tremor est futurus, quando iudex est venturus, cuncta stricte discussurus!
It will be known that David was fooled by the false prophet Nathan and by his Commander of Armies and perhaps by the Sybil itself in revenge for unjust accusations of Saul, and the hypocrisy of David.]
Yahweh said to him, Go up. David said, Where shall I go up? He said, To Hebron. 2:2 So David went up there, and his two wives also, Ahinoam the Jezreelitess, and Abigail the wife of Nabal the Carmelite. 2:3 His men who were with him did David bring up, every man with his household: and they lived in the cities of Hebron. 2:4
The men of Judah came, and there they anointed David king over the house of Judah.
They told David, saying, The men of Jabesh
[Jabesh is the name Abyza, the sister of Saul who is married to the Egyptian Pharoah, overlord of all Judea]
Gilead were those who buried Saul. 2:5 David sent messengers to the men of Jabesh Gilead, and said to them, Blessed be you of Yahweh, that you have shown this kindness to your lord, even to Saul, and have buried him. 2:6 Now Yahweh show loving kindness and truth to you: and I also will reward you for this kindness, because you have done this thing. 2:7 Now therefore let your hands be strong, and be valiant; for
Saul your lord is dead, and also the house of Judah have anointed me king over them.
[The house of Judah is not the same thing as the territory of Judea. The house of Judah is a tribe. Judea is a territory of the Egyptian Empire, whatever it was called at that time, it was subject to the Pharoah. Therefore, it is only a tribal kingship that is conferred on David at this time, by the tribe of Judah only.]
Abner the son of Ner, captain of Saul’s army,
[in another version of the story, a betrayal of Saul by his General Abner had secretly set Saul up for failure, and had not only taken the young crown prince but apparently crippled his ‘feet’ to make him impotent or not dangerous. This version doesn’t mention anything about it. It only says that Saul’s son is made king over all Israel at the same time as David is voted head of the tribe of Judah. The crown prince, Son of Saul’s name contains the root word ‘Bosh’ or Byz within Ishbosheth/Isa-Byzha-ata.]
had taken Ishbosheth the son of Saul, and brought him over to Mahanaim; 2:9 and he made him king over Gilead, and over the Ashurites, and over Jezreel, and over Ephraim, and over Benjamin, and over all Israel. 2:10
Ishbosheth, Saul’s son, was forty years old when he began to reign over Israel, and he reigned two years.
The time that David was king in Hebron over the house of Judah was seven years and six months.”
Here it says that the Son of Saul reigned as overlord over the House of Judah. So yes, David did reign for 7 years, but only over the single tribe of Judah. It appears that the tribe of Judah is occupying a secret hide-out within the walls of the city which was their base from which they robbed for a living, if my understanding of the scripture is correct. This hide-out was at Mello and the destruction of it was a source of anger for those followers of David who used it. I invite others to read the scripture carefully and decide for yourself if this is in fact what the words are saying
By this account, there was scarcely a moment, when Saul’s crown ceased to be worn by a member of his family, even as David’s followers managed to twist the written records that have come down to us in the Bible. However, these twists have all been recognized and pointed out by bible scholars over the years and the best record of them that I’ve found is in the annotated Oxford Study Bible.
I hope one day to see a Catholic annotated study bible put together by strong traditional scholars. Perhaps one already exists and this would certainly be a best seller if someone would bring it out now.
