The authors demonstrate that the Tree of Life was derived from an ancient sacerdotal calendar belonging to the Temple of Solomon. This lost temple calendar resembles the Seven Palaces of the Merkabah Mystics and it was discovered in an encrypted format within the Zohar. Its discovery marks a new chapter for all major Abrahamic religions.One of the most interesting features of the Temple Calendar diagram is - in respect of the Hebrew names associated with the calendar - that the Goddess Elat figures as prominently as the God El. Hadad (Baal) functions as the Lord of Heaven corresponding to Asherahs Queen of Heaven. This implies that worship at the Temple of Solomon was not a patriarchal affair but acknowledged the masculine and feminine natures of deity jointly and through a triple gradation of the deities soul. In effect the appearance of polytheism is due to the different names associated with the different aspects of the deity - echoing and similar to the Egyptian conception that all Gods and Goddesses were orderly arranged aspects of the Sun deity.The secrets of the Sadducees are out!ABSTRACTHidden within the open text of the Zohar is a code that cleverly conceals an ancient intercalated 364 day Temple calendar likely to have been used at the Temple of Solomon. The Temple Calendar is packaged in the form of a mechanistic diagram and is unquestionably the direct source of the diagram known as ‘The Tree of Life’. This diagram matches the descriptions of the Merkabah Mystics of the Seven Palaces of El, the elder God of the Canaanite pantheon. Each ‘Palace’ and ‘path’ is assigned a letter of the Hebrew aleph-bet and the Holy Name attributed to the combination of palaces identifies the Calendar as a pre-monotheistic artifact. The Calendar delineates the daily and nightly ‘Zmanim’ (times of daily and nightly worship) and has a high degree of correspondence with the numerical tallies of the biblical book 1 Kings (6 8). We suggest there is a direct correspondence between the features of the Temple Calendar and the architectural design of the Temple of Solomon.Key WordsReligion, Near East, Temple, Calendar, Solomon, Garden of Eden, El, El-AT, Asherah, Hadad, Baal, Yahweh, Adam, Sarah, 364 days, Ugarit, Jerusalem, cryptography, code, Zohar, Wheel, Kings, Seven, Palaces, Tree of Life, Sacred Tree, gates, Zmanim, building, cosmology.Advisory notice:This paper is best understood by: students of the Ancient Near East that have a familiarity with Zoharic studies. Some attention is given to 19th century esoteric groups in the Introduction but these play no part in the subsequent Discussion or Conclusion.Not included in the paper proper but added as a bonus for cryptographers- the authors also provide the solution to a cryptographic puzzle set by Aleister Crowley in 1904 (the Riddle of Liber Al vel Legis) as the solution to his puzzle requires the student to have already cracked the Zohar code.Thank you.
