Poseidon in the Bible

A curious verse grabbed my attention yesterday: Ezekiel 28:2. In it God commands the prophet Ezekiel to declare to the prince of Tyre, “‘In the pride of your heart you say, ‘I am a god; I sit on the throne of a god in the heart of the seas.’ But you are a mere mortal and not a god, though you think you are as wise as a god.”

It occured to me that “a god in the heart of the seas” sounds a lot like Poseidon, so I looked further afield, beyond the Bible. It turns out that Agenor, the Phoenician king of Tyre in Greek legend, was said to be a son of Poseidon. It was not uncommon for the writers of the Bible to avoid naming gods other than God directly and instead rely on allusion. I am now fairly confident it is Poseidon that the Bible is alluding to here.

  1. Amazing stuff man, I agree with this 100%.

    It’s amazing how the Greek mythology, Islam, Freemasonry all link into with pagan gods & the god of the bible, The true god of Israel. Yahweh, jehovah, yahve.

  2. I agree. In my research, the description of Tyrus given in Ezekiel is of Atlantis, to which Poseidon and his 10 sons ruled. It would appear that the sinking of Tyrus or Atlantis would have had to have been after the great deluge of Noah or Nereus to the Greeks. In Ezekiel 27:13 it lists Javan , Tubal and Meshech as traders with Tyre. These being the great grandsons of Noah, would make it impossible for it to have sunk in an antedeluvian period. It may be stated that Tyre here is the Lebanese city of Tyre, but all through chapter 27 of Ezekiel, it says that the city and its merchandise will fall into the sea and will “cease to be forever” (verse 36). To me this does not sound like the ancient city of Tyre that still exists today, or even the small off shore isle that Alexander the Great invaded in 332BC. I would propose the idea that the city fell in a tsunami like event post flood, as Ezekiel 27:26 states that “the east wind has broken you in the heart of the seas”. This could have occured during a pole shift, or this could have simply been a judgement from the Most High on principalities and Nephilim kings that ruled there. These were the ancient bull cults of old and would spread into the actual city of Tyre and all that Phonecia touched in their worship of baal. They also worshiped the pagan diety “Melqart” who was called the son of baal. Many researchers agree that Melqart was synonomous with the Greek Herakles son of Zues. This same Herakles would be the ones to create the pillars of hercules in his 12 feats, and as Plato described, this would be the entrance to the area of Atlantis from the Med. Sea. Just something to chew on! Shalom
