The earliest Christians were converted pagans. One of the arguments the early Church used to convert pagans to Christianity was that Jesus Christ had more solar attributes than any other god. His face was even reputed to shine like the sun (Matt 17:2). Examining the metaphorical logic of equating Jesus with Helios the Sun, one has to ask … is there any kind of logical reason or secret knowledge that the early Gnostic Christians were aware of to make these kind of comparisons? Is there some kind of a link between the raised Jesus (8880) and the Magic Square of the Sun whose number is 666?
The “magic square of the sun,” was one of the most important symbols used to represent the sun in antiquity because of all the symbolism it possessed involving the perfect number “6.” There are six sides to a cube, the numbers 1, 2, an 3, when added or multiplied together are equal to “6,” and the sum of all the numbers from 1 to 36 arranged in a 6×6 magic square are equal to the number “666.” The square is “magic” because the sum of any row, column, or diagonal is equal to the number “111.” After the Church became the state religion of the Roman empire, possessing the diagram below could get you burned at the stake!
