Anubis was the god of the underworld until As-Ar took over. The story is similar to Jesus how he uppon "death" went to Sheol or Hades to conquer
death and be brought back to life. NT lore is heavilly based on ancient Egyptian writings, like the coffin- and pyramid-texts together with the Book
of the Dead, the best known would be the Papyrus of Ani.
Back in the days different societies offered sneek peeks into the afterworld. And some times it ended there, with death, for their methods had to be
believed by the common man, as with Jesus. They used their technology, drugs and medicine to the full in order to kill and revive people. Some used
methane, others belladonna, some, like Jesus used torture, drugs and medical sugery. He was first tortured so he lost his ability to breathe properly.
A condition known as punctured or collapsed longue. Further he was bled with his crown of thorns and crucified until he couldnot breathe anylonger.
In Judaism, the lifeforce or what would be the Ka in ancient Egypt, lives in the blood, while the spirit resides in a man's breath, which would
represent the Egyptian Akh, the spirit or ghost, what animates the body. Remember how God created Adam. First he created his Ke or soul, a clay
statue. Then he breathed air through his nose, to animate the soul, and turn it into a living creature.
So if a person didn't breathe, he would be concidered dead back in the days, by the Jews, but not with the Romans, who were skilled surgeants and
knew the ways to heal soldiers in the battlefield. But as anyone should know, Jesus, though dead according to the common concensus back then, would be
saved through Longinus, the head centurion by the foot of the cross, who confessed Jesus to be the true son of God when he gave up his breath. They
lowered the crossbeam and Longinus pierced his thorax or chest cavity with the ever infamous "Spear of Destiny" to release the blood and condensed
water that was filling up his thorax making breathing impossible. The common man believed he pierced his heart. He was then wrapped in linnen by
Arimathea and rushed off to an empty tomb, where he probably received the "kiss of life" -- mouth to mouth, and had his wounds healed with the
healing oils and salvae Magdalena brought to the grave. Also in a hurry (why would they rush to a grave?). He would also had his hair and beard cut,
and he was treated there for a couple of days until the wound in his longue had healed and he could leave the tomb without being recognised, even by
his woman, Miriam of Bethany. Part of the story goes that Longinus was executed by his superiors for having contributed to Jesus' survival. Jesus
himself said: There is no greater love than to give one's life for another.
