THE HALO OR NIMBUS

The Halo, or nimbus,  is often seen around the head of Jesus and others in objects of  art.  It may surprise you; but the halo is not found in the Bible but has a pagan and non-Christian origin associated with the worship of the sun. 

HALO - Gk -halos - disk of sun or moon.  2.  The ideal glory lent by the imagination to a person or object highly prized.

The apostles gave warnings  to the brethren about idolatrous practices that were creeping into the church.   Let us learn to be discerning and reject all things connected to pagan worship.

“FOR THE MYSTERY OF INIQUITY [Lawlessness]  DOTH ALREADY WORK  …”  2 Thessalonians 2:7

“Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.”  1 Corinthians 10:14
