(christmas 01)

I think that perhaps I have slept around forty-five minutes this night/morning.
So, here are some pictures from yesterday and the day before instead;

bible

An old bible.

I found a bible when I was out shopping.  It seemed old, and I could not resist buying it.


Many of the details are just stunning.


I’m not sure what this picture is supposed to illustrate, but it is from the old testament.
Perhaps they are just crucifying a snake because they where all out of Christs?
I have no idea.  People say Christ didn’t exist back then, but that he existed, but he hadn’t been here yet, so it didn’t count.  Still, I find this picture quite odd.

This is the standard Christian prayer in Swedish. Perhaps slightly more than 250 years old Swedish. It is beautiful, isn’t it?

Snow.

I have written all christmas cards, but I haven’t posted them yet.  I may be adult enough to actually write them nowadays, but not get them posted in time. :p

But.  Time to get dressed in prettier clothes.  It will be a long day.
Hopefully I will be able to sleep early.

  1. Snake/Christ, kind of the same thing in a way. It doesn’t look much like a crucifixion in that picture, more like the snake is just there. It seems to be Moses’ brazen serpent standard. The symbol of the cross, also, anyway, was originally usually accompanied with a snake. However, if the snake /was/ crucified, like in this pic: http://www.fuocosacro.com/pagine/1/flamel-5.jpg … then I say it symbolizes the death of wisdom & enlightenment, as the serpent is associated with that (for example, the quote; “Be ye as wise as serpents.”), and also then to mean the same as what St Patrick is to have said; “I have cast out the serpents from the land.”, being atonist propaganda referring to the expulsion, slaughter of and conquest over the ancient druids.

    A decent scan of the pic: http://www.helsinki.fi/~pjojala/Bible_Gustave-Dore-The-Brazen_Serpent.jpg
