What have the Elgin Marbles to do with the Bible? The same question might be asked: why are the Elgin Marbles in the news now when Israel is in the news? They are in the news to the point of the disruption of National relations between Greece and UK – and so we take note as to what the Bible says – about Greeks.
When I have bent Judah for me, filled the bow with Ephraim, and raised up thy sons, O Zion, against thy sons, O Greece, and made thee as the sword of a mighty man. (Zechariah 9:13)
The sons of Zion are right now pitted in a global battle against Hamas and their supporters, but also fundamentally against the sons of Greece – not Greeks, but the cultural inheritors of Greek culture.
We know who the sons of Greece are as they have and value as their own the Elgin marbles, a set of Classical sculptures from the Parthenon. The British are also among the sons of Greece. If they were not they would not hold onto the artefacts so strongly!
In fact if Britain had not valued classical Greek culture above that of actual Greeks and taken the marbles and preserved them, poverty, war and acid rain would have destroyed them.
Acropolis Now! Diplomatic meltdown over Elgin Marbles as Downing Street says Rishi Sunak axed talks with Greek PM during visit because he broke promise not to stoke long-running row in public
The spat could derail delicate negotiations that have been going on behind the scenes for a loan deal between the British Museum - which the government insists legally owns the marbles - and the Greeks.
Athens has long demanded the return of the Parthenon Sculptures, which were removed from Greece by Lord Elgin in the early 19th century, when he was the British ambassador to the Ottoman Empire He told the BBC that he would 'meet both Keir Starmer and of course the Prime Minister' to discuss the return of sculptures which he said were 'essentially stolen'.
Mr Mitsotakis said British possession of the Marbles was a form of cultural vandalism
Downing Street responded: 'Obviously that's not something we would agree with. 'These were legally acquired at the time, they're legally owned by the trustees of the museum. We support that position and there's no plan to change the law which governs it.'
'It is our view that for far too long constant attempts to relitigate in public the long settled issue of the ownership of the marbles has cast a shadow over an otherwise productive relationship with Greece and that those conversations are best had in private... Those assurances were not adhered to and you saw the subsequent action that was taken.'
A diplomatic spat is raging between the UK and Greece after the PM cancelled a meeting with his Greek counterpart.
They are even talking about the King's Greek tie
We have more proof that Britain is of the sons of Greece as King Charles' father was born in Greek Corfu Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark, a Greek Royal, sixth in line to the Greek throne. The connections are strong.
Meanwhile, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis in an interview with Bloomberg on Friday said he wants to preserve good relations with London
Do we take seriously proclamations of support for Israel by the cultural sons of Greece?
A very quick search shows that though Rishi is an Indian genetically, his classical British education has made him culturally a son of Greece – as he is determined to divide Zion to the detriment of the sons of Zion, yea even to give to the violent.
Prime Minister brings in political heavyweight, making a powerful statement on UK foreign policy profile
PM met Palestinian Authority leader in Egypt as part of tour of the region to try to prevent the conflict escalating
The Prime Minister will use a speech in London on Monday to outline his vision for a 'hard-headed' foreign policy.
We further explore the sons of Greece here and show they cover the western world.
After understanding that the British ruling classically-educated upper-crust are the sons of Greece, we can see easily that these British sons of Greece are no friends of Israel. They have plans to divide Zion again, as they did in the past, but we see that those of Judah and Ephraim are now not deceived and are rising against such plans.
But why do we take notice? If there is a diplomatic spat we are to take notice as a sign of the time – the time of the nearness of the end of the prophecy of Zechariah – the coming of the king of Zion – Anointed, Christ, Messiah – the time when no less that the Creator will go forth against those who seek to divide Zion.. Let us listen – soon we will hear Yahweh Elohim blow the Trumpet – perhaps it is already in this war as the sons of Greece awake to meddle with Zion...
And the LORD shall be seen over them, and his arrow shall go forth as the lightning: and the Lord GOD shall blow the trumpet, and shall go with whirlwinds of the south. The LORD of hosts shall defend them; and they shall devour, and subdue with sling stones; (Zechariah 9:14-15)
The LORD their God shall save them in that day as the flock of his people: for they shall be as the stones of a crown, lifted up as an ensign upon his land. (Zechariah 9:16)<
