Tomb of Ramesses VI: Example #2

The pictures on this page compare some of the many events

in Rev. 11-12 which correspond in both in sequence and
content with scenes found in the Books of the Heavens as
seen on the ceiling of the Sarcophagus chamber (Hall I) of
the Tomb of Ramesses VI in the Valley of the Kings.

 


A. Scene on Ceiling of sarcophagus chamber


Rev 12:1 says:
"And a great portent appeared in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun
.... "
 Also, note that about a third of the stars are flowing down toward the horizon as
described Rev. 12:4, "
His tail swept down a third of the stars of heaven, and cast them
to the earth."


B. Locations of the main scenes which parallel those described in Rev. 11-12

 This figure shows the sequence of parallel scenes (black circles) in this part of the tomb.
Note that in this version, the scene of the "woman clothed with the sun" actually begins
at Rev. 11:15 rather than Rev. 12:1.

 


 This scene parallels Rev. 12:2,5 says "she was with child and she
cried out in her pangs of birth, in anguish for delivery.
.... 
she brought
forth a male child ... but her child was caught up to God and to his
throne."

 


C. Attack of the serpent/dragon


After Re's birth (Rev. 12:1-2) he travels through the sky and grows to full maturity by
noon. Setting in the west, he travels through the Netherworld in where he resumes his
fetal form to ultimately be born on the eastern horizon at dawn.
