The constellations were originally taught to Seth by God, according to Josephus, as in them He wrote the everlasting gospel in the stars, which no man
(or devil) could erase or change.
“Now this Seth, when he was brought up … became a virtuous man, and as he was himself of an excellent character, so did he leave children behind him who imitated his virtues. … They also were the inventors of that peculiar sort of wisdom which is concerned with the heavenly bodies, and their order.”
– Josephus, Jewish Antiquities, Bk. 1, Ch. 2. (68), (69), pg. 52.
“With all the obscurity which the ages of apostasy and heathenism have imposed upon [the signs of the constellations], they still shine through, to tell of the faith which put them there, and to declare that very glory of God which received its sublimest expression in the imperishable truths of our Gospel. Even astrology, Sabaism, the abominations of idolatry, and skepticism itself, have been overruled to preserve to us what God had by His Spirit, thus caused to be recorded on the face of the sky from the very beginning of the world.
– Joseph A. Seiss, The Gospel in the Stars, pp. 26, 27.
