A Message Written in the Stars
All of the E books displayed below are in the non-fiction category and are presented in a formal style with references, tables of figures and end notes. However, many people told me they would prefer to read a thriller novel with shady characters, devious plots, corrupt dealings etc. and could I tell about the facts on the tabernacle and the role of Mary Magdalene within such a popular presentation. I have therefore presented this e book “A Message Written in the Stars” as a work of fiction with an investigative journalist interviewing a fellow who was building a replica of the tabernacle of Moses beside Croagh Patrick in County Mayo, Ireland. The characters are all fictional and so are the various plots. However, the technical details about the tabernacle are real as are the revelations about the role of Mary Magdalene at the resurrection of Jesus on that first Easter morning.
In the E book an investigative journalist, Kelly Ryan, visits a site at the foot of Ireland’s holy mountain of Croagh Patrick to find out why a fellow is building a tabernacle there. The tabernacle builder is Michael and he tells Kelly he has discovered a secret archive of celestial knowledge in the dimensions of the sacred icon. He elaborates by pointing out to Kelly the various surface area dimensions of the tabernacle and how they had the same numerical values as the number of days in each orbit of the planets.
Kelly recognizes that Michael’s discovery with the sun, moon and stars in the dimensions of the tabernacle is a major public news story and she invites him to participate in her radio chat show. On the chat show Michael outlines that the cosmic display of the stars in the tabernacle made it a virtual heaven on earth. This eventually allowed the gospel writers to use the tabernacle as an ornamental motif to explain the events in the tomb at the resurrection of Jesus in a presentation that mortals could understand. Kelly digs deeper with her questions asking Michael to spell out the bigger picture with the tabernacle motif. Michael answers that by telling of the the events at the tomb through the motif of the tabernacle, the gospel writers had elevated the apostolic role of Mary Magdalene to be on par with the traditional high priest and thus she stood above Peter and therefore Mary should now be recognized as the first pope.
The radio interview had a huge impact with the listeners but it also drew the attention of a slick building speculator named Con Power who spotted that the tabernacle at Croagh Patrick had the potential to make mega bucks from pilgrims and tourists. Con sets out to grab the holy icon from Michael and gets a cohort named Joe Bailey to ring in to Kelly’s radio chat show with the aim of discrediting Michael’s technical figures on the tabernacle. Joe is only too willing and he causes a furore on Kelly’s chat show where he challenges the validity of the tabernacle figures and accuses Michael of deception for his own gain. Kelly is called a fool by a listener and after the show she is given a tongue lashing by the scowling radio manager. But all is not lost for let plotters beware that you meddle with the house of God in which The Ark of the Covenant was stored at your own peril…
