The Firmament

Post by flatterme on Thu Feb 09, 2017 9:00 pm

"Jews speculated as to what material the firmament was made of: clay or copper or iron (3 Apoc. Bar. 3.7). They differentiated between the firmament and the empty space or air between it and the earth (Gen. Rab. 4.3.a; 2 Apoc. Bar. 21.4). They tried to figure out how thick it was by employing biblical interpretation (Gen. Rab. 4.5.2). Most tellingly they even tried to calculate scientifically the thickness of the firmament (Pesab. 49a). "Christians speculated as to whether it was made of earth, air, fire, or water (the basic elements of Greek science). Origen called the firmament "without doubt firm and solid" (First Homily on Genesis, FC 71). Ambrose, commenting on Gen 1:6, said, 'the specific solidity of this exterior firmament is meant' (Hexameron, FC 42.60). Augustine said the word firmament was used 'to indicate not that it is motionless but that it is solid and that it constitutes an impassable boundary between the waters above and the waters below' (The Literal Meaning of Genesis, ACW 41.1.61)." - p. 236

It is very interesting.
Beyond is heaven, right? It is closer than the heliocentrists/spherists would have us to believe.
I ask, what is beyond the circle of Antarctica?

The material which the dome is made of most likely.
It is called sky - stone.

Here is an interesting video on it

Thanks for the video.
I do not know English very well, but from what I understand in that videos, there are blue stones of the dome, right?
Above the dome are the waters above the firmament, right?
