The hypothesis that I present is that Galilee, meaning a wheel or rotating wheel, astrologically represents the circle of the constellations in the heavens, or rather the zodiac wheel. Galilee is mentioned 72 times in the New Testament, a number directly connected with the precession of the equinox and the great year.
If we interpret scripture using the modality of astrotheology, Jesus represents the sun, the zodiac circle is Galilee and the 12 apostles are the 12 constellations. We know that Jesus chose his apostles from around Galilee and he instructed his apostles to meet him in Galilee after his resurrection. The constellations do follow the sun across the sky every morning that it arises. Here are a few scriptures.
Every year the sun moves around its elliptical path through the 12 zodiac signs. The Spring and Fall Equinoxes are the moment at which the center of the Sun is directly above the Equator giving earth 12 equals hours of day and night. But, the point of the Spring Equinox moves backwards around the zodiac signs once in 25,920 years, called a Great Year. In other words, we measure the Great Year by the movement of the Spring Equinox.
Hang with me, you will see in a moment why this is significant.
This backward precession of the Equinox takes 72 years to move one degree. Calculating 1-degree every 72 years to complete a 360-degree circle results in the 25,920 years, Great Year.
For this reason, the number 72 became sacred and can be found in many mystical instances. For example, Jesus sent out 72 disciples to spread his message.
Luke 10:1 After this, the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of Him to every town and place He was about to visit.
According to the Hebrew Zohar, the degrees of Jacob’s ladder to heaven were to the number 72.
72 generations are listed in the Genesis 10, starting at Noah. The oldest division of the text of Revelation by the 6th century Greek commentator, Andrew Cesary, was 72 chapters but was changed to 22 in the 13th century. There are 72 virgins promised in Islam. The list is actually exhaustive.
The number 72 was recently discovered upon the bridge in the painting of Mona Lisa by Leonardo Da’ Vinci. Bridges and rivers can denote the passage of time. The Mona Lisa was the one painting that Da’ Vinci kept until his death. Leonardo, like many artists of his time, was known to insert hidden symbols in his work.
Thanks for hanging with me, I tried to be brief. Now to reward you with the big reveal.
I was able to locate 72 instances in the New Testament where the name Galilee was mentioned. The fact that this would even be, is astounding and shows intent.
For Galilee to be mentioned 72 times is truly amazing because it is the best indicator that Galilee, although a historical place, can also represent the great circle of the zodiac in the heavens.
This should not be too surprising because we know that ancient people, all the way back to the Egyptians and beyond mirrored what they saw in the heavens.
The number 72 is the key to the precession of the Equinox that gives us a Great Year. If Galilee represents this rotating wheel in the sky, the very meaning of the word Galilee, then we should expect to find a biblical connection with Galilee and the number 72, just as the catching 153 fish in John 21:11 alludes to the number of the Vesica Piscis, which means ‘vessel of the fish’.
