Re: the story of Egyptian god Horus
I'm not sure where people are getting that Jesus was based on Horus except for the madonna and child art in which both Horus and Jesus are depicted
as the baby. Please realize that such representations of mother and child are hardly unique to any culture, but have been a favorite theme of artists
since time began.
I have read extensively the translations of the Egyptian stele by E.A. Wallis Budge and other Egyptologists and have not encountered the following
assertions about Horus found in this video:
- that he married his mother
- that he had 12 disciples
- that his mother was a virgin
- that he was born on Dec. 25th
- that he was visited by 3 kings
I believe all of these statements about Horus to be falsified.
Rather, Horus is "the double-wanded one," meaning he was a hermaphrodite, and most probably a twin.
- During his contentions with Set, he cut off the head of his mother and replaced it with the head of a cow
- As a child, he was bitten by a snake sent by Set and nearly killed, and left crippled
- He was born "in November" or "the unluckiest month of the year," at the end of the queue of the other gods
(Now, it is believed that Jesus was born in August during a planetary conjunction that would explain the bright star. The December Christmas feast
comes from the pagan/celtic culture for the winter solstice and has absolutely nothing to do with our Jewish friend)
If anyone has some actual Egyptian sources to substantiate the fabrications about the god that some say is the "god of the new aeon," I would be
very interested to see them.
Horus is in no way Jesus or a Jesus pre-cursor except for in some mis-interpreted artwork, and should not be confused as such. Understanding the
nature of this god is terribly important at this time or I wouldn't say anything. Horus demands to be understood and understood correctly. And that
goes doubly for Christ.
