Judaism, Christianity and Persia's Kingdom of Heaven -- New book dispels popular beliefs surrounding the "Kingdom of Heaven"
FAR ROCKAWAY, N.Y., August 6, 2003 (PRIMEZONE) -- For over 2000 years, people have taken the "Kingdom of Heaven," a pillar of both Judaism and Christianity, to be a Judeo-Christian concept. Author Seymour Rettek tells readers that the "Kingdom," known today as the Messianic Era, actually originated with Zoroastrianism, the Persian religion prevalent during Persia's 200-year occupation of the "land East of the Euphrates." In his well-researched volume, The Kingdom of Heaven Through the Ages (now available through 1stBooks), the author traces the vicissitudes of this concept from the time of its inception to the time Christianity separated from Judaism in the second century.
