This table should not be taken schematicly;
however, it is no arbitrary too - it contains results of our explorations. The
Bible passages may be selected for Bible study, meditation or other work. As far
as there are spiritual relations between the passages, they may follow the same
sequence, and reverse too (cf. for instance John 1:30; John
8:58; Matthew 17, where Jesus refers to earlier and earlier eras) - more
explanations in our main text -. Some difficult contents may be understood by
The "archetypes" in a wider sense which we refer to, are models - beings, forces and steps of development as well. This does not mean, they were significant only for the mind of the individual. Already the Psychology of C. G. Jung recognized the "collective" nature of archetypes. God can use them; he is also a God of the history. Jesus transforms them. More incidents might be added.
