They fashioned a tomb for you, holy and high one,
Cretans, always liars, evil beasts, idle bellies.
But you are not dead: you live and abide forever,
For in you we live and move and have our being.

Cited by Paul.
Is a reference to Zeus.
Uses it to define Christ.
Zeus in Orphic theology is "God", King of All, Panentheistic.
Aion, Cronos, Phanes, Dionysius, Pan, Hermes, Apollo—all Zeus, there's only Zeus.

Let us begin with Zeus, whom we mortals never leave unspoken.
For every street, every market-place is full of Zeus.
Even the sea and the harbor are full of this deity.
Everywhere everyone is indebted to Zeus.
>For we are indeed his offspring

So Zeus swallowed the body of the god of the Firstborn king, Phanes, the reverend one. And with him all the immortals became one, the blessed gods and goddesses and rivers and lovely springs and everything else that then existed: he became the sole one.
