Christ as Archetype

   The horizontal beam of the specifically Christian cross, by the way, is fixed, not at the middle of the vertical beam, but higher, at the level of the Savior’s head.  At the middle it would have crossed at the genitals and have thereby represented a phallic centering – like that of Yahweh’s Old Testament law for those circumcised in the Covenant, where the religion is of race; whereas the Christian is of faith, belief, the mind and heart, to which members of any race whatsoever may be joined.  TMD 195
