In the sun-god trinity, Khepera brings the dawn, Re appears at noon, and Tem carries the deity through the night. Khepera (or Khepri) rolls the sun across the sky like the scarab rolls a ball of dung. He has the power of resurrection, bringing the sun back to life after it “dies” at night.
The Beatles represented the resurrection of Western civilization after it had “died” during World War II and slumbered during the conservative social and political era of the 1950s. The Beatles and the beetle god also expressed the general creativity and challenge to authority that began in the mid-1960s, a period also popularized as the "Age of Aquarius."
The sun inspired the song writing of the sun gods. The words "sun" or "sunshine" are mentioned in 17 songs recorded by the Beatles, such as these lyrics from “Dear Prudence”:
The sun is up, the sky blue,
it’s beautiful and so are you
John Lennon's most controversial statement, that the Beatles were more popular than Jesus, was hardly an outrageous comparison as the scarab form, like Jesus, represents resurrection. For example, the German artist Albrecht Dürer associated a beetle with Christ in various paintings.
The ball of dung pushed by the scarab god also had its counterpart in modern culture. That rolling ball is "like a rolling stone," which, aside from the original meaning “gathers no moss,” begat the Rolling Stones and Rolling Stone magazine.
In September 2018, former Beatle Paul McCartney released the album Egypt Station, whose cover art included a scarab, perhaps an acknowledgment of the Beatles-Khepera connection.
