Wheat

Who gets slaughtered at the end of summer, gets buried at the end of autumn, gets resurrected, reborn at the end of winter, becomes young and fertile at the end of spring, becomes mature at the end of summer just to be slaughtered again...so that the cycle can be repeated again, year after year after year...???

  1. Do all agricultural societies have a murdered, buried and resurrected god?

    1. good question... The bread of life. Is this maybe supposed to be interpreted literally? Knowing how dependent wheat is on the weather, wheat is literally the son of the father who is in heaven...

  2. Maybe it's not so much the bread as the beer or spirit?
