Claim: Horus attended a special rite of passage at the age of twelve and there is no data on the child from the age of 12 to Truth: There is no continuous effort in the Horus mythology to account for all these years, so there are no real gaps in the chronology.

Horus never taught in any temple at twelve (as did Jesus). Horus’ birth was actually celebrated during the month of Khoiak (October/November).

The evidence for any opinion is very thin. Horus According to Egyptian mythology and the Book of the Dead, the ancient Egyptian God of the Earth, ‘Geb’ and Goddess of the Sky, ‘Nut’ had four offsprings – Osiris, Isis, Set, and Nephthys.

Osiris was the God of Afterlife and he married his sister Isis the Goddess of Fertility. Christian man: How so. Maher: Written in B.C., the Book of the Dead describes a God, Horus. Horus is the son of the god Osiris, born to a virgin mother. He was baptized in a river by Anup the Baptizer who was later beheaded.

Like Jesus, Horus was tempted while alone in the desert, healed the sick, the blind, cast out demons, and walked on. Written in BC, the Book of the Dead describes a God, Horus.

In fact, there are many “books of the dead.” But there is no single, official Book of the Dead. The books are collections of ancient Egyptian spells that were believed to help the deceased on their journey to the afterlife.

There are therefore extensive borrowings of Christian theology from Egyptian religion, but directly linking Jesus with Horus, at least at the time the *biblical* mythology was forming, is not. Dear Cecil: I first heard the claim that Jesus was a copycat of the Egyptian god Horus when I watched the so-called documentary supposedly walked on water, was born from a virgin, healed the sick, etc.

Naturally, I was skeptical and tried doing some research but found only biased opinions that weren't backed by much evidence. Yes, they say. Written in B.C., the Book of the Dead describes a God, Horus. Horus is the son of the god Osiris, born to a virgin mother. He was baptized in a river by Anup the Baptizer who was later beheaded.

Like Jesus, Horus was tempted while alone in the desert, healed the sick, the blind, cast out demons, and walked on water. This is an important should be recommended reading for those interested in the history of Christianity, the Abrahamic religions,and comparative book is based on extensive research and the resulting references to be found within the complete sphere of the Egyptian Ra-Horus-Osiris-Isis religion that describe the parallels Reviews: The Horus-Jesus connection myth has much of what makes an urban legend appealing.

Interesting, I think that the Egyptian myths, Gods and deities are even predated by earlier epics and beliefs from my readings, I think the story of Horus shows up in as a theme predating Egypt, as we know the Greeks were most definitely inspired by many of the Egyptian myths and then changed a bit, names changed slightly but keeping many of the themes, however, to me the Greeks are given.

By Travis Haan | 24 May The Wise Sloth. Mythology is defined: “a traditional or legendary story, usually concerning some being or hero or event, with or without a determinable basis of fact or a natural explanation, especially one that is concerned with deities or demigods and explains some practice, rite, or phenomenon of nature.” 1.

The Bible is objectively, scientifically. The birth of Horus announced by angels. The birth of Jesus announced by angels. Herut tried to murder the infant Horus. Herod slaughtered every first born in an attempt to kill Jesus the forthcoming messiah. Horus is baptized at age 30 by Anup the Baptiser at a river.

Jesus is baptized at age 30 by John the Baptist at a river. Horus is the name of a sky god in ancient Egyptian mythology which designates primarily two deities: Horus the Elder (or Horus the Great), the last born of the first five original gods, and Horus the Younger, the son of Osiris and ing to the historian Jimmy Dunn, "Horus is the most important of the avian deities" who takes on so many forms and is depicted so differently in various.

According to Egyptian myth, Horus lost his left eye in a struggle with Seth. The eye was magically restored by Hathor, and this restoration came to symbolize the process of making whole and healing. For this reason, the symbol was often used in amulets.

From its inception, Egyptian Christianity was represented by those who readily equated Jesus with both Osiris and Horus, the latter two symbolizing sun gods or aspects of the sun. Indeed, the Egyptian Christians or Copts repeatedly identified Osiris and Horus with Jesus in both myth and ritual, as the mythical lives of all three characters.

In the struggle Set had lost a testicle, explaining why the desert, which Set represented, is infertile. Horus’ left eye had also been gouged out, then a new eye was created by part of Khonsu, the moon god, and was replaced. Horus represented the eclipsing binary Algol in the Calendar of Lucky and Unlucky Days of papyrus Cairo Horus or Her, Heru, Hor, Har in Ancient Egyptian, is one of the most significant ancient Egyptian deities who served many functions, most notably god of kingship and the sky.

He was worshipped from at least the late prehistoric Egypt until the Ptolemaic Kingdom and Roman ent forms of Horus are recorded in history and these are treated as distinct gods by Egyptologists.

In his book on the subject Hellenistic Mystery Religions (), Richard Reitzenstein held that the sacrificing of the bull was similar to the Christian view of the atonement. Yet Christian scholar Edwin Yamauchi writes, “He thought the sacrifice of Christ aligned itself with the killing of a bull by Mithras.

The Christ myth theory (also known as the Jesus myth theory, Jesus mythicism, or the Jesus ahistoricity theory) is the view that the story of Jesus is largely fictitious, and has little basis in historical fact.

Alternatively, in terms given by Bart Ehrman paraphrasing Earl Doherty, "the historical Jesus did not if he did, he had virtually nothing to do with the founding of Christianity.". The same holds true for the claim that the Jesus story is a variation of the Horus myth.

Maher simply asserts – without any evidence –a number of parallels between Jesus and Horus. For example, both were supposedly born to a virgin on December 25th. Horus=Jesus, Isis=Mary, Osiris=God, Amun=Amen, Apophis=Devil MUST SEE!!!!. – W. Cooper, (The Horus Myth in its Relation to Christianity, p49) Isis was part of a sacred triad.

The Egyptians deified so-called 'emanations' of the supreme, unknowable godhead, typically grouping them into trinities (in fact, a whole hierarchy of trinities). Christian man: How so. Maher: Written in B.C., the Book of the Dead describes a God, Horus. Horus is the son of the god Osiris, born to a virgin mother.

He was baptized in a river by Anup the Baptizer who was later beheaded. Like Jesus, Horus was tempted while alone in the desert, healed the sick, the blind, cast out demons, and walked on.

Destined to be a classic enjoyed by both the professional scholar and the lay person, this comparative religion book contains a startling perspective of the extraordinary history of the Egyptian religion and its profound influence upon the later Christian faith.

Christ in Egypt: The Horus-Jesus Connection uses a massive amount of primary sources and the. The lake of fire can be found as early as the Old Kingdom Pyramid Texts, but the best source for such imagery is the Late Egyptian Book of the Dead and its companion texts.

Book of the Dead spell 43A, for example, speaks in its rubric of “Not Being Burned in the Fire,” and has a vignette of the deceased standing near flames of fire.

Egyptian Osiris/Isis/Horus allegory and the Christian revelation is exactly the same. The British scholar A.N. Wilson pointed out in his book, Jesus: The Jesus of History and the Christ of Faith are two separate beings, with very different stories.

It is difficult enough to ANCIENTEGYPTIANROOTS OF CHRISTIANITY, 2ND EDITION ix. The Horus myth in its relation to Christianity by Cooper, W. (William Ricketts), (London: Hardwicke & Bogue, ) You will note that this is rather an old book but that it deals explicitly with what you want to know.
