The Bible can be read either literally or symbolically, and as in Genesis, the difference is like night and day.
Christianity, since its beginning, has been divided by dogmatic disputes into many Churches, and according to Jesus, a house divided cannot stand. Is the traditional preference for a literal understanding of the Bible responsible for these disagreements, considering that the Bible sometimes says different things? And again, how can we hope to understand the Bible literally, when Jesus frequently spoke in symbolic parables? “The Second Symbol” will resurrect the long-dead language of Bible Symbolism, so that people living today can go back to the beginning for themselves, and hear the Lord’s Word unblemished by dogma.
