قالب:Controversial Comparing is not merging! Below text could eventually be of some interest, but not in a genealogical site. Please erase these personal opinions. قالب:Mythological Japheth is the name of a mythological king who is also an amalgamated heroقالب:Ref!. His reign and body of mythology pre-dates the Bible. Comparative mythologyComparing is not merging! shows that the earliest mythological cycles of this king is preserved only in the mythologies of the Egyptiansقالب:Ref!, the Greek Parthians and Zoroastrians of Persia. However the argument can be made that JHVH of the Jews and Christians represents a devolved form of this same mythological person.

Zoroastrian Mythology

In the second chapter of the Vendidad of the Avesta, the omniscient Creator Ahura Mazda asks Yima, a good shepherd, to receive his law and bring it to men. However, Yima refuses, and so Ahura Mazda charges him with a different mission: to rule over and nourish the earth, to see that the living things prosper. This Yima accepts, and Ahura Mazda presents him with a golden seal and a dagger inlaid with gold.

Yima rules as king for three hundred years, and soon the earth was full of men, flocks of birds and herds of animals. He deprived the daevas, who were demonic servants of the evil Ahriman, of wealth, herds and reputation during his reign. Good men, however, lived lives of plenty, and were neither sick nor aged. Father and son walked together, each appearing no older than fifteen. Ahura Mazda visits him once more, warning him of this overpopulation. Yima, shining with light, faced southwards and pressed the golden seal against the earth and boring into it with the poniard, says "O Spenta Armaiti, kindly open asunder and stretch thyself afar, to bear flocks and herds and men."

The earth swells and Yima rules for another six hundred years before the same problem occurred once more. Once again he pressed the seal and dagger to the earth and asked the ground to swell up to bear more men and beasts, and the earth swells again. Nine hundred years later, the earth was full again. The same solution is employed, the earth swelling again.

The next part of the story tells of a meeting of Ahura Mazda and the Yazatas in Airyanem Vaejah, the first of the "perfect lands". Yima attends with a group of "the best of mortals", where Ahura Mazda warns him of an upcoming catastrophe: "O fair Yima, son of Vivaŋhat! Upon the material world the evil winters are about to fall, that shall bring the fierce, deadly frost; upon the material world the evil winters are about to fall, that shall make snow-flakes fall thick, even an arədvi deep on the highest tops of mountains."

Ahura Mazda advises Yima to construct a Vara (Avestan: enclosure) in the form of a multi-level cavern underground, two miles (3 km) long and two miles (3 km) wide. This he is to populate with the fittest of men and women; and with two of every animal, bird and plant; and supply with food and water gathered the previous summer. Yima creates the Vara by crushing the earth with a stamp of his foot, and kneading it into shape as a potter does to clay. He creates streets and buildings, and brings nearly two thousand people to live therein. He creates artificial light, and finally seals the Vara with a golden ring.

Egyptian Mythology

This Jahopheth was the first of the Egptian Gods given the name of Thoth. The earliest Egyptian myth involving Thoth is an variant of the Zoroastrian myth involving Lord Japheth the guardian of mankind at the onset of the Ice Age.

When Ra retired from the earth, he appointed Thoth and told him of his desire to create a Light-soul in the Duat and in the Land of the Caves (Terenuthis), and it was over this region that the sun god appointed Thoth to rule, ordering him to keep a register of those who were there, and to mete out just punishments to them. Thoth became the representation of Ra in the afterlife, seen at the judgement of the dead in the 'Halls of the Double Ma'at'(Dilmunat).

Hebrew Mythology

Jahopheth's name rendered in Semitic is JHVH or (Jehovah) and is also in essence the same name as Joshua and Jesus. It is interesting to note that in Christian mythology Jesus is often referred to as JHVH or the pre-mortal God Jehovah made flesh. Which some may argue as being yet another case of verisimilitude.

Historical Perspective

Trade with Magan (Egypt), Dilmun (Whereabouts unidentified) and Meluhha (Indus Valley) is evidenced by the archaeological record of Eridu. The boundaries of these kingdoms have long since changed. Most of the civiliations they represent no longer exist but That Dilmun and Meluhha continued to be remembered in the post diluvian political environment as symbols of trade power is evidenced by two letters dated to the reign of Burnaburiash (c. 1370 BC) recovered from Nippur, during the Kassite dynasty of Babylon. These letters were from a provincial official in Dilmun to his superiors in Mesopotamia. The names referred to are Akkadian. These letters and other documents, hint at administrative relationship between Dilmun and Babylon at that time. Following the collapse of the Kassite dynasty, Mesopotamian documents are silent on Dilmun except Assyrian inscriptions dated to 1250 BC which proclaimed the Assyrian king to be king of Magan, Dilmun, and Meluhha, as well as Lower Sea and Upper Sea.

The city of Dilmun is mentioned in the records of ancient Mesopotamia. Dilmun/Telmun is a source of raw material, copper, and entrepot of the Mesopotamia and the Indus Valley Civilization trade route. Sumerian cuneiform clay tablets dated to the end of (pre-diluvian) fourth millennium BC, found in the temple of goddess Inanna, in the city of Uruk lists rations of wool issued to people connected with Dilmun.

Tales of Atlantis

This myth could very well be the origin of the myths of Atlantis. The name of the land in which they Jamshied dwells is called Airyanem Vaejah or Kingdom of the Blessed which the Greeks referred to as the Islands of the Blessed and which lay beyond the Pillar of Hercules.

Underground Cities of the Levant

The oldest written source about underground cities is the Anabasis of Xenophon (Written around B.C. 4), but there are many more older cities in the region of Cappadokia that are underground as well:

  • Tatlarin
  • Ozkonak
  • Mazi
  • Kaymakli
  • Gaziemir

Zoroastrian Account of the Ice Age Onset

And Ahura-Mazda spake unto Yima, saying:

  • O fair Yima [King], son of Vîvanghat! Upon the material world the fatal winters are going to fall, that shall bring the fierce, foul frost; Snow-flakes shall fall thick, even an aredvî[Blizzard], deep on the highest tops of mountains.
  • And all the three sorts of beasts shall perish, those that live in the wilderness, and those that live on the tops of the mountains, and those that live in the bosom of the dale under the shelter of stables.
  • Therefore make thee a vara [cache/box (alt trans. rule or staff)] long as a riding-ground on every side of the square, and thither bring sheep and oxen, men, dogs, birds and red blazing fires.
  • There thou shalt make waters flow in a bed a hâthra long; there thou shalt settle birds by the ever-green banks that bear never-failing food. There thou shalt establish dwelling-places, consisting of houses with a balcony, a courtyard, and a gallery.
  • Thither thou shalt bring men and women, of the greatest, best, and finest kinds on this earth; thither thou shalt bring every kind of cattle, of the greatest, best, and finest kinds on this earth. Thither thou shalt bring the seeds of every kind of fruit, the fullest of food and sweetest of odour. All those shalt thou bring, two of every kind, to be kept inexhaustible there, so long as those men shall stay in the vara. "Thou shalt bring thither... Men and Women, of the greatest, best, and finest kinds on this earth, thou shalt bring thither. All those shalt thou bring, two of every kind, to be kept there inexhaustible, so long as men those stay in the Marshall rod.
  • There shall be no hump-backed, none bulged forward there [obese]; no impotent, no lunatic, no poverty, no lying, no meanness, no jealousy, no decayed tooth, no leprous to be confined, nor any of the brands wherewith Angro Mainyus stamps the bodies of mortals."
  • Then Yima said within himself: How shall I manage to make that vara which Ahura-Mazda has commanded me to make?
  • And Ahura-Mazda said unto Yima: Crush the earth with a stamp of thy heel, and then knead it with thy hands
