They shall beat their swords into plowsharesIsaiah 2:4
and their spears into pruning hooks;
One nation shall not raise the sword against another,
nor shall they train for war again.
Centuries before the Magi from the East brought their gifts to the Christ Child, the Eastern sage Lao Tzu intuited the character of the Tao/Logos as prophesied by Isaiah:
When the world has the TaoLao Tzu, Tao Te Ching, chapter 46, translated by Derek Lin
Fast horses are retired to fertilize the grounds
When the world lacks the Tao
Warhorses must give birth on the battlefield
Tao (Way or Universal Principle) is the word used to translate Logos (Word in St. John’s Prologue) in the Chinese Bible.
