THE LAMPSTAND
OF THE TABERNACLE OF THE LORD
For the Lamps of Eternal Light



 


Discovered in the Antechamber
Of the tomb of TUT-ankh-amun

The LORD said to Moses

"And you shall make a lamp-stand of pure gold.
The base and the shaft of the lampstand

shall be made of hammered work;
its cups. its capitals and its flowers

shall be of one piece with it;
and there shall be six branches going out of its sides,
three branches of the lampstand cut of one side of it
and three branches of the lampstand

out of the other side of it;
three made like almonds, each with capital and flower,

on one branch,
and three cups made like almonds,

each with capital and flower, on the other branch
- so for the six branches

going out of the lampstand;
and on the lampstand itself
four cups made like almonds..."

.
 




Count in the Lampstand above



SIX Branches but only FOUR FLOWERS



Count the flowers and stems carefully and compare Exodus.




Surely there is not
in the whole ancient world another Lampstand such as this one
fitting the description in Exodus of the Lampstand of the Tabernacle.









The Biblical mistranslation of "almond" instead of "lily" comes from confusion of
Indo-European (e.g. Latvian, Lithuanian)
gile, jile "almond, Mandel" with lilija "lily".
