“And the Twelve Did Teach the Multitude”

Alan C. Miner

According to Joy Osborn, in Teotihuacan, on one side of the Temple of the Sun stands the Temple of the Moon, and on the other side the Temple of Quetzalcoatl. Jack West says the Indians "tell us the Temple of the Moon was built in honor of the Holy Ghost. The Temple of the Sun to the Father God and the Temple of Quetzalcoatl to the Son-God -- not s-u-n God, but Son-God." The Indians said the twelve small temples or pyramids that surrounded the Pyramid of Quetzalcoatl represented the twelve helpers of the Son-God. [Joy M.
