He is given a series of astronomical knowledge about the order of the cosmos, the sun, the moon and its phases, the lunar year, the winds (which were widely available to the Elohìms, since they were space travelers!). Second brief concluding remark We deliberately stop here, not considering any further the apocryphal texts, because our commitment is to use the texts officially accepted by Christian religion that, as such, are held to be true, justified and “inspired by God” (even if “suspiciously” altered not to accept what they as simply and clearly tell us: the Elohìm moved on flying machines!). Zechariah Zechariah is included among the so-called “minor prophets”, defined as such only on the basis of the quantity of texts attributed to them: therefore, it is not a qualitative assessment. Indeed, it could not be so, since careful and compared readings of the Gospels attests that the prophet Jesus based the most part of his own preaching and on the doctrines of such predecessors, whom he often cited. Zechariah, whose name means “Yahweh has reminded”, belongs, along with Haggai and Malachi, to the group of prophets of the Persian age; at the end of the sixth century BCE. In the book attributed to him, the prophet tells firsthand his “visions”, which can be summarized as follows: Being on the bay horse, which we discussed in the chapter on malakhìms (Zech 1:7-17); Four horns and four craftsmen (artisans) (Zech 2:1-4); A man with a string to measure the city of Jerusalem (Zech 2:5-17); Purification of the priest and Zerubbabel's promise of rebuilding the Temple (Zech 3:1-10 and 4:6b-10); The candlestick with the two olive trees (Zech. 4:1-6 and 10b-14); The meghillàh (scroll) and the flying efàh (Zech 5:1-11); 148

Four flying chariots between two mountains of copper (Zech 6:1-15). We will consider the last two blocks, because they are particularly significant. We can at once dismiss that what we read is the result of a dream or a vision, since a little bit earlier the prophet (Zech 4:1) states: “the malàkh talking with me returned and woke me as the man who is awakened from his sleep”. With this clarification, which guarantees that the prophet was certainly wide awake, we now look at Zechariah 5.1-11. The Meghillàh and the Efàh: Unidentified Flying Objects... Zechariah (5:1) speaks in first person and says: And I returned and raised my eyes To “return and do something” is a Hebrew phrase often used to say that you do something “again”: therefore, the real meaning of the expression is “I raised my eyes again”. Then he goes on: and here I saw a flying roll (cylinder) The malàkh asks him what he is seeing (Zech 5:2) and he answers: 149
