    Dear Friends,

    We are coming up to Three Kings day (Jan 6th). Can we flesh out the story a bit more? What was behind the coming of the Magi?

    I have posted before about the stories in the Book of the Bee:
    http://www.comparative-religion.com/forum/zarathustra-in-the-book-of-7820.html

    Here is a quote from that book:

    Chapter XXXVII - The Prophecy of Zârâdôsht Concerning Our Lord

    Here is the prophecy from the Avesta of the Saviour of the future Astvatorota/ Astvat-ereta/arata- Saoshyant:
    Saoshyant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    "the mighty, royal, promising-bearing
    Sun-ether-ayra, God-created,
    Who will pass over into the resplendent Saviour
    And the others, his Apostles;
    Who carries the world onwards,
    And overcomes old age, death, corruption and sloth,
    Who helps to eternal life,
    To eternal fructification,
    To freedom of the will, (to mastery of the will)
    When the dead rise again,
    When the living Conqueror of death appears
    And through the will the world is brought forward.


    Quoted by F.W. Zeylmans von Emmichoven

    That is enough for now-

    Greetings Farhan,
    Well I supposed he had to have a crack at it, but unfortunately, I'm afraid he's floundering in nescience.

    Modern Parsis are now waking up to the true story:

    The Being of Zarathushtra in the light of Anthroposophy


    Your author says:
    This observation has been made from the early days and it is why in the Mystery Plays that there are two distinct plays- Kings' and Shepherds'. I have explained all this in previous posts.

    Matthew does indeed stem from the Persian Mysteries.

    This doesn't sound like the Founder of Islam:
    "the mighty, royal, promising-bearing
    Sun-ether-ayra, God-created,
    Who will pass over into the resplendent Saviour
    And the others, his Apostles;
    Who carries the world onwards,
    And overcomes old age, death, corruption and sloth,
    Who helps to eternal life,

    The Book of the Bee gives us a hint:
    Zârâdôsht says to him, 'He shall descend from my family; I am he, and he is I; he is in me, and I am in him. When the beginning p. 82of his coming appears, mighty signs will be seen in heaven, and his light shall surpass that of the sun.

    I have posted on the being of Zarathustra before:
    http://www.comparative-religion.com/forum/zarathustra-8146.html
    And furthermore:

    Matthew's Star An Historical Fiction
    northanger's Journal -- Day
    The Arabic Gospel of the Infancy of the Saviour:

    Saoshyant

    Regards,
    -Br.Bruce

    Why should we care about a book from the 13th century AD? It has nothing whatsoever to do with Zarathustra himself.

    Hi Bob,
    The Book of the Bee is a historical compilation of earlier knowledge- i.e. it was only written down in the 13th. We can assume it to be Nestorian doctrine. (And most probably the original source documents are now lost.)

    The author was 'on the ground' so to speak in Basra. So he was in a position to investigate the Zoroastrian prophecies.

    Modern spiritual revelation has validated this information- so yes we should look carefully at such books. (Like the Arabic Infancy Gospel.)

    Toodleoo,
    Br.Bruce
