Ancient Egyptian Vineyard

Allegorical meaning of this painting

In ancient Egypt wine was a synonym for both Truth and Wisdom. Horus was the 'True Vine' who came to gather in the harvest of the righteous on behalf of his Father, Osiris. The time of the grape harvest in Ancient Egypt coincided with the inundation, when the land was full of water and the folks were full of wine! This took place in the month 'Mesore' (Ancient Egyptian Mesu-Ra), around June/July in our calender. Mesu-Ra means 'children of Ra' in Egyptian, and it was this special class of 'souls' that Horus came to save. Previously they had been given water to drink, but with the coming of the Saviour, they received the Wine of Truth. Here we see one interpretation of the Biblical parable of turning water into wine. But there were many other interpretations of the symbol of wine that were imparted to students of the Mysteries in ancient Egypt.
