Who were Tubalcain, Aholiab and Zabud and
what is their significance for the Freemason? There is a general interest in
the rituals of Freemasonry, generated in part by the apparently obscure
references they contain. This is the only book that offers a guide to the
stories used in Masonic ritual and their links to the Bible and Christianity.
The new Mason is directed to a ‘serious contemplation of the Volume of the
Sacred Law’ — but that is easier said than done without a grounding in the
Scriptures, something that fewer and fewer people have. The historical and
geographical setting of the Bible is explained here, making such contemplation
easier for Mason and non-Mason alike.
Mike Neville has systematically cross-referenced the most influential Chapters of the Bible to the ceremonies. It is his intention to get Freemasons to understand the ritual — not just to memorise and regurgitate — as well as to elucidate for the non-Mason. Sacred Secrets will aid the clergy, theologians and any other person interested in Freemasonry to see the links between ritual and scripture.
