I've seen most of this before so I've had a chance to reflect upon it.
Most of the facts presented appear to be true although there are some errors. Not all of these pagan christs bear such a close resemblance as this
video would lead you to believe. For example, it says Mithra was born of a virgin. If you look that up, you will see he was born from a rock.
Irrespective of the details, I would say the conceptual parallels between Horus and Christianity demonstrates that the idea of Christ predates the
Jewish religion and possibly also the Israelite religion of the Bible.
What the author gets wrong is that the idea of Christ is not the same as Jesus Christ. It was never claimed that he conceived of all these
prophecies, but that he fulfilled
them. He was not a myth but a real person that actually lived the life ascribed to these gods. There are
numerous places in the NT which state he took some action in order to fulfill prophesy.
The fact he was a real person is demonstrated by the fact that more writings refer to him than anyone else in history. In fact, western civilization
is actually built around him including our dates. Many other people in history are accepted as real with far less evidence. We still don't know if
some people like Homer or even William Shakespeare actually existed.
"Contrary to the authors conclusion that this somehow invalidates Christianity I think it only strengthens it." I agree.
