The Celestial Snow White

Author Ralph Ellis takes on a cosmic journey to explore the celestial origins of a most beloved fairy tale.

The fairy tale of Snow White was written by the Brothers Grimm during the mid 19th Century, and like all of their fables it was written as a parable and therefore infused with layers of hidden meaning. The Brothers Grimm were not simply storytellers, they were academics, lexicographers and linguists who were deeply immersed in historical and cultural research. They not only knew of the literary usage of the Gospel parable and the Talmudic pesher, they wanted to emulate these tried and tested techniques. And the deliberately cryptic nature of the Gospel parables is made perfectly clear by Jesus himself, when he says:

“The disciples came to Jesus and said: Why do you speak in parables? He answered: Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given… Therefore I speak to them in parables, because they seeing see not and hearing they hear not, not do they understand.” Matthew 13:10-13

During their research into German language and culture the Brothers Grimm came across many Pagan folk tales that appeared to contain similar hidden meanings, and they were determined to preserve them for future generations. They even included heretical stories about New Testament events – the kind of heretical elements that have been explored in The King Jesus Trilogy. Surprisingly, the innocent-sounding Snow White (or The Magic Mirror) was one of these heretical stories. This story not only contained cosmic and astrological elements but, just like Rapunzel, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty, it also contained distinct Gospel overtones.
