WHAT DOCTORS ARE USING IS - CADUCEUS
The caduceus, the traditional symbol of Hermes featuring two snakes around an often
winged staff, is often mistakenly used as a symbol of medicine instead of the Rod of
Asclepius, especially in the USA The two-snake caduceus design has ancient and consistent
associations with commerce, eloquence, trickery, and negotiation.
Early evidence of any symbolic association between the caduceus and medicine or medical practice is scarce and ambiguous.
WHO CREATED THE MEDICAL SYMBOL?
The symbol originated when Mercury once attempted to stop a fight between two snakes by
throwing his ROD at them, whereupon they twined themselves around the ROD, and the
symbol was born.
The ROD of Asclepius belongs to Aesculapius, who was the revered Greek god of healing.
WHO IS THE FATHER OF MEDICINES?
Hippocrates is considered to be the father of modern medicine because in his books, which are more than 70. He described in a scientific manner, many diseases and their treatment after detailed observation. He lived about 2400 years ago (circa 460-377 BC).
The LAW really will rule with a rod of iron as in the many sections of verses listed in this article. The word “rule” is translated “shepherd” in some versions. This is a misunderstood situation in that many think it means to be a leader with an iron fist or harsh ruler or even as a shepherd to rule his sheep with an iron rod. The truth of the matter is that in our modern day and age, most of us are far from understanding the important purposes of rods and staffs that have been used by mankind for thousands of years. One purpose for rods was in measurement, but rods were used as symbols of authority as well as for correction and punishment. Scepters were considered “rods” in some measure sometimes, as well as the staffs of shepherds.
