I’ve been reading the Book of Revelation recently.
Included in these readings is the Whore of Babylon and The Beast of Revelation. Several things have spurred my interest in these matters. From The Ninth Gate, Mother of Tears, to Southland Tales and Quicksilver. Even watching old reruns of Rome on the History Channel with my roommate have made me curious. I’ve read the Bible, but this was years ago, when I was 13 in secondary school. I went to a Catholic secondary school, which was run by Capucins brothers.
I got a copy of the King James Holy Bible (PDF). It’s fascinating to read about the Apocalypse. I’ve always been interested by the different holy texts that exist. I’m most interested in the significance of Jesus of Nazareth and his impact to the many faiths of Earth.
What must it have been like to live during those times, to see the Crucifixion?
عيسى is revered by many different religions.
Accounts from two thousand years ago are like quicksilver, fleeting yet permanent. Seeing the Resurrection and the Ascension.
Are mathematics bringing me closer to God?
The storm has started.
