Here is an interesting video, linking the Bible and the events with Astrology.
12 Disciples represent the 12 constelations.
The resurrection after 3 days, represents how the Sun appears to become frozen (dies) for 3 days, in the equinox and then appears to start its return (resurrection).
The similarities between all the Sun gods such as Mithra, Horus and Jesus, also point to this astrological basis for the Bible and Jesus Christ.
The Death on the Cross, is a representation of the cross of ancient Astrology where the Sun dies before being resurrected.
The Sun appears first in the star sign Virgo at it's birth, Dec 25th, thus the Virgin birth myth.
I'll let the video do the explaining.
