Christians adopted the image of the Sun (Helios or Sol Invictus) to represent Christ.
Is the sun really God?
The sun god occupied a central position in both Sumerian and Akkadian religion, but neither the Sumerian Utu nor the Semitic Shamash was included among the three highest gods of the pantheon. The sun was one of the most popular deities, however, among the Indo-European peoples and was a symbol of divine power to them.
What does the Bible say about there is nothing new under the sun?
A phrase adapted from the Book of Ecclesiastes; the author complains frequently in the book about the monotony of life. The entire passage reads, “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.”

Cross, the principal symbol of the Christian religion, recalling the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ and the redeeming benefits of his Passion and death. The cross is thus a sign both of Christ himself and of the faith of Christians.

What has been is what will be and what has been done is what will be done there is nothing new under the sun?
To the place the streams come from, there they return again. All things are wearisome, more than one can say. The eye never has enough of seeing, nor the ear its fill of hearing. What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.

Whatever is has already been, and what will be has been before; and God will call the past to account. And I saw something else under the sun: In the place of judgment–wickedness was there, in the place of justice–wickedness was there.
What is the purpose of a psalm?
The Psalms offer us ways to rejoice in prayer, to bow in worship, to exalt God for all he does and for all his blessings to us. I mentioned earlier how we can slide over words that become too familiar. Years ago I began to memorise portions of Scripture, including a number of the Psalms.
What animal represents God?
The lamb appears throughout the ages with great regularity in Christian art and because it is a symbol of Christ: “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world!” (Bible, John 1:29). The use of the lamb in religious art pre-dates Christianity and appears to have been used first by the Egyptians.
