This is just as true for people of every culture around the world, today as it was thousands of years ago for the ancient Egyptians, the Romans, the Greeks, the Hebrews and all the other people of the world. Egyptian hieroglyphic symbols are famed for their antiquity. Scholars and historians are still attempting to decipher many of these symbols, some of which, in similar formats are used within Freemasonry, today, such as the Point Within a Circle, the Sun, Moon, etc. Some believe that Moses brought the knowledge of these symbols with him after the Hebrews left Egypt.

Jerome's Vulgate Bible. For more information about the different Bibles throughout history, see Freemasonry and the Bible. Phoenicia is the ancient name for the country we now know as Lebanon.

The ornate pillars which stood on both sides of the entrance to King Solomon's temple; 1 Kings The Holy Scriptures tell us that acacia was used to construct most of the sacred furniture and the tabernacle within King Solomon's temple. Exodus and Ezekial King Solomon and his Master Masons 1Kings The Altar of Incense 1 Kings Masonic symbols such as the double-headed eagle used by the Scottish Rite are steeped in antiquity.
The double-headed eagle appears on the Coat of Arms of many different countries, as well as several national flags. The double-headed eagle symbol may also be seen on the flag of the Greek Orthodox Church. The Holy Roman Empire and the Byzantine Empire, too, both used the double-headed eagle as an emblem of their rulership.
The symbolism for each entity using the double-headed eagle is quite different, As you can see, above, many not all of the Masonic symbols we learn, today, go back thousands of years, quite literally into the mists of time. This is where for many people, Freemasonry becomes erroneously confused with ancient secrets, evil and other convoluted beliefs.
The Connection Between Ancient Egyptian Mystery Schools and Freemasonry
As a percentage of the world's population, few people around the world speak the Hebrew language, today. Therefore, because of this lack of knowledge, many people fear the meaning of symbols with which they are not familiar. Unfortunately, this fear sometimes translates quite quickly from a fear of the unknown to an unfounded fear of evil. Evil has no part within Freemasonry.
Scottish Rite Freemasonry degrees are advanced Freemason degrees in the United States which a Freemason may choose to attain once he has obtained his Master Mason degree. The golden symbol at the center on a blue background which looks somewhat like a flame blowing in the wind is the Hebrew letter "Yod".

Most Freemasons do not know Hebrew. Most Freemason symbols do not require any knowledge of the Hebrew language.

The Holy Scripture was originally written in Hebrew. Some of the symbols that we know, today, as Masonic symbols are to be found in ancient cultures and in some schools of thought in more recent times, notably those of the Rosicrucians, the Hermeticists, the Kabalists, as well as the mystic and occult schools of thought such as the Gnostics, the Pythagoreans and the Neo-Platomists.

It is within these ancient mystic and occult schools of thought that mystical beliefs and alchemy also become confused with Freemasonry.

Why Ancient Egypt?
Your quest for Masonic light knowledge is a journey which will take you on many fascinating paths back through history. Like any traveler, it is just as important that we learn about different cultures throughout different eras as it is to learn about and visit other jurisdictions within Freemasonry. While on the journey, it is also important that we do not lose our way. While all knowledge is good; One of the take-home lessons of Freemasonry is that the Masonic student should not only learn the meanings of Masonic symbols, but also remember that we are simply visitors to the historical information we read.
In that sense, we must remember that different Masonic authors may sometimes imply slightly different meanings gleaned from their own perception and understanding of that ancient body of knowledge which may not perfectly agree with meanings gleaned from other authors throughout history.
