Much research has explored the astrology of Christian texts. But the author has developed a fresh perspective: the biblical gospels should be read together as a “four-fold set”, each book representing a star sign as part of an astrologically designed, inter-dependent whole. He reveals a “grand astro-theological programme behind the gospel narrations”
All Scriptures speak in a mysterious language of symbols.
Astrology and the gospels
Comprehending the New Testament’s content and meaning requires effective use of allegorical modes of interpretation.(1) One of the most useful hermeneutic (or interpretive) tools is astrological symbolism, a conclusion based on socio-historical grounds. Astrology was dominant in Hellenistic theology and culture; and Christianity’s documents were formed within the Hellenistic context.
A significant amount of research has explored the astro-theological background of Christian texts. However the astrological essence of the gospels as a four-fold set remains largely unknown.(2)
