Why did Horus have to fulfill prophecies? Horus is a God and Saviour of Ancient Egypt, not Christianity..
Horus was depicted being cradled by his mother in some statues and was also claimed to be the Son of two Egyptian deities Osirus and Isis. It is alleged he was born of a Virgin..
A Historical figure? We still hear about today so I'd say he must of been important back in those days for what ever reason it may be.
I know what the Jews did to Jesus also and the Jews didn't recognise Jesus as their messiah like they won't the second time around also. Maybe you shouldn't be laughing...

Interesting. The question that comes to mind is: Did Jesus want to be known throughout the world or didn't he? If he wanted to be known and loved and worshiped by all then he would have done it while alive.
Since this didn't happen (and going on the premise that his story is true) then apparently he only wanted a select few in the Middle East to know him.
Dude, its nothing more than Sun worship with a feel good about yourself story attached to it.
The only thing a floating around in the sky that resembles light is the Sun.
Crucifixion was often performed to terrorize and dissuade its witnesses from perpetrating particularly heinous crimes. Victims were left on display after death as warnings to others who might attempt dissent. Crucifixion was usually intended to provide a death that was particularly slow, painful (hence the term excruciating, literally "out of crucifying"), gruesome, humiliating, and public, using whatever means were most expedient for that goal. Crucifixion methods varied considerably with location and time period.
Mark 15:44 Pilate was surprised to hear that he should have already died.[a] And summoning the centurion, he asked him whether he was already dead.

If you read the story of creation carefully, you'll notice that God said "let there be light" a few days before he created the sun. Light existed before the sun. What makes you think that light only resides in the sky that your eye is capable of seeing?
Yet, if you were to take a survey around the world as to whether or not anyone's ever heard of him, you'd probably be hard pressed to find those who haven't.
He hung for three hours without breathing.
