The Star of David Symbolism in the First Chapter of the Book of Genesis

By Judas Maccabaeus on
The magi’s coming to Jerusalem in order to pay homage to the king of the Jews shows that they seek in Israel, in the messianic light of the STAR OF DAVID, the one who will be king of the nations. Their coming means that pagans can discover Jesus and worship him as Son of God and Savior of the world only by turning towards the Jews and receiving from them the messianic promise as contained in the Old Testament.

Just about every God-fearing reader of the Bible knows the basic symbolism behind the Star of David which is composed of two opposite-pointing intersecting equilateral triangles perfectly placed on top of each other to create a completely symmetrical six-pointed star. Indeed, even the very name of this geometrical form has a coherent meaning to it, as man throughout the ages has noticed the way the stars and even the sun will sometimes sparkle (or twinkle), thus appearing to have six-points to them, even though they are still obviously round, circular dots in the sky.

Heaven___Heavan

One need not be a believer in Judaism to understand how this symbol provides one of most simple, yet comprehensible, ikons used to represent such concepts as Heaven and Earth, God and Man, Soul and Body, Material and Spiritual, Mountain and Valley, etc. Throughout the Middle Ages, many a Christian Gentile, especially the more learned among them, understand this symbol as, not only representing a unity of opposites, such as the elements of Earth and Air, or Water and Fire, but also as an expression of complementary concepts, much like the ebony and ivory keys to a piano which, when played correctly and by using the correct combinations, was capable of creating something beautiful- like the Latin Mass at its finest and most profound.

Historically speaking, the Catholic Church wasn’t very prone to call the hexagram the Star of David (or Magen David in Hebrew). In fact, for several centuries before the modern term ‘Star of David’ ever became part of everyday vocabulary, and long before this symbol ever became specifically Jewish, the Church preferred to refer to the hexagram as the Star of Creation, or the Creator’s Star. Now the obvious question that might come to readers’ minds is why on earth did the Christian authorities ever refer to this symbol in such a manner. The Star of Creation? Whatever does that mean?

The six-pointed star is the Creator’s Star or Star of Creation. Its six points stand for the six days of creation.

The easy answer is to simply point out that God’s Creation includes both the Heavens and the Earth, Mountains and Valleys, Clouds and Seas, Volcanoes and Tornadoes, so the symbolic representation of BOTH distinctly different items placed together would of course signify the reality that Creation is filled with a diverse array of BOTH phenomenon- not to mention the fact that every snowflake is basically a Star of David, in one form or another.

All of this is true of course, but it doesn’t really truly answer the question completely. Why not call it the God’s Star, rather than the Creator’s Star? Obviously, there must be a reason behind this particular designation and the following analysis of the Creation story in the 1st Chapter of Genesis (Genesis 1:1-27) is a humble attempt to explain the reasons why-

The Star of David seems to nest itself in the beginning of the Bible…

This simple, basic analysis provides one of best ways in explaining the ultimate reason why the Catholic Church, while acknowledging the hexagram as a legitimate family seal for the House of David (including Jesus Chris), has still tended, for literally hundreds of years, to refer to the Star of David as the Star of Creation. Considering the inherent common sense seen in the above interpretation of the Creation story in Genesis 1, it should be fairly easy to understand why.

The Star of David seems to nest itself in the beginning of the bible…Therefore it’s the question if Moses was aware of the fact that when he wrote down the bible text, he also wrote down the mathematical laws of the hexagram…for with the creation of Heaven and Earth appear also the Laws of Nature and of course the mathematical Laws too.

The thought of Heaven and Earth sharing one dimension brought a scripture to mind. Jesus taught them to pray “in earth as it is in heaven”.

QUORA.COM- ‘Vampires are afraid of crosses. But if the vampire was a Jew…would a Star of David work?’

 

QUORA.COM- ‘Vampires are afraid of crosses. But if the vampire was a Jew in its mortal life, would a Star of David work?’

Answer by Jason Corning: Yes, the Star of David would work against a Jewish vampire, and most probably against a non-Jewish vampire as well, because the power of the symbol comes from the faith of the intended victim. This means that a Jew trying to protect themselves with the Star of David would end up being the most potent defense- rather than a Jew using a cross or a non-Jew brandishing a Star of David. Here are the relevant sources-
Symbols of faith will make a vampire recoil in an instant, so long as the person holding it has enough belief and conviction. Traditionally, crucifixes have been used to repel these deadly beings, however, Stars of David, Wiccan pentacles and other symbols are now also thought to be just as effective. Vampires are so petrified of the potential wrath of higher powers; they steer clear of true believers.

The BBC Television series Being Human (which premiered in 2008 in England and was adapted for North America in 2011) has rules around the Star of David. The Jewish symbol can repel a vampire attack, although with the caveats that the bearer must not feel any affection for the vampire or be outnumbered by them, else its effectiveness is diminished; the oldest vampires are also immune to religious relics. And in the young adult urban fantasy book series The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, vampires are vulnerable to religious symbols from whatever faith they were as humans.

Star of David Talmud- Natives Below and Strangers Above

The native then would be in the earth and the stranger in the highest heavens? Yes, the like has found its like and is aroused.

The Divine Law has therefore stated, ‘The owner of the ox shall be acquitted’, implying exemption. Said Raba thereupon: ‘Is the native born to be on the Earth and the stranger in the highest Heavens?’ ‘No’, said Raba. ‘The implication drawn by R. Jose is essential for this reason, that you might have been inclined to apply the inference ‘Men but not oxen’ only to oxen which could be compared to men – just as men are Mu’ad so the oxen here referred to are Mu’ad.

The Star Of David Is The “sign”/Icon/Symbol For Jesus Christ

The Star of David is the historic icon/symbol for the kingship of David. The prophets had written that the Messiah would come from the lineage of David. Because the Star of David is the icon/symbol for the kingship of David, the Star of David is actually the “sign”/icon/symbol for the Messiah, the Greatest King, or King of Kings, who would come from David’s lineage and completely overshadow David…

The Star of David is made up of two equilateral triangles. One triangle is pointing down, and the other triangle is pointing up. The triangle that is pointing down is God’s triangle and represents the Trinity of Soul, Body, and Spirit; or God the Father, God the Son, and the Holy Spirit of God reaching down to mankind. The triangle that is pointing up is mankind’s triangle and also represents the trinity of soul, body, and spirit, but of mankind reaching up to God.

The Star of David represents:

1. who Jesus Christ is – God and man together in a single physical form only exists in the physical person of Jesus Christ.
2. what Jesus Christ did – Through the Blood-Substitution Sacrifice of Jesus Christ, any person can be reconciled to God.
3. what Jesus Christ does – Through Jesus Christ, any person can have At-One-Ment with God.
4. what the “Born Again” Children of God are able to do through Jesus Christ – The Star of David is the symbol that fully represents the spiritual intercourse referenced in The Book of John chapter 17 where Jesus Christ is in God, the “Born Again” Children of God are in Jesus Christ, and thereby “Born Again” Children of God are in God through faith in Jesus Christ.

The “sign”/icon/symbol for the Messiah, the Greatest King, or King of Kings; who would come from the lineage of David, who would be fully God and also fully man throughout eternity can only be Jesus the Christ – the God/Man.

The Star of David is and can only be the “sign”/icon/symbol for Jesus Christ.

Revelation 22:16 (NIV) “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.”

The Star of David is the Star of Jesus Christ.

TYPES OF STARS

Planetary Stars – In the Stars that I have studied since 1990, the two interlocking triangles are formed solely by the planets in our solar system along with the Sun and the Moon. These planetary Stars of David I have written about extensively in these pages, and I believe planetary Stars have global impact. For example, since 1990, three stars have been war stars – the one in 1990 that appeared directly after Iraq invaded Kuwait signaling the Gulf War, the 2001 Star occurred seven days before the destruction of the World Trade Center Twin Towers that led to the War in Afghanistan, and the November 2002 Star preceded the War in Iraq four months later. All of these Stars had difficult squares to the Sun. In 1990, Mars squared the Sun, in 2001 both Saturn and Pluto squared the Sun, and in 2002 Uranus squared the Sun. Planetary Stars have global impact and many times the effect of the Star, like a solar eclipse will last from one Star to the next.

Personal or local Stars – There are times when five planets almost form a Star, but one point is missing. In these situations an individual can use a specific time set for his or her locality to form the Star of David with the Ascendant, the Midheaven, or Part of Fortune creating the final point. I have worked with these charts and my feeling is that they impact the individual who is electing the time and they are good for personal and spiritual development. They do not have global impact as they are locality based and individually created. I do not write about those personal or local starts in these pages. I focus only on planetary Stars.

Planetary/asteroid Stars – Sometimes a Star of David is formed by five planets and an asteroid, most notably Chiron. This is a hybrid Star. It is not totally planetary, but also not locality based or individually oriented. It does not have global impact in my opinion, but it does have significance, especially for those who have natal connections to the Star.
