What’s more important, the origin or the message? In most cases people are bothered by what Jesus looked like or where he was born, but what do think is important? Does it affect his message and do you think that these comparisons are true. Was Jesus a human being?
Like Jesus, Horus was also placed on the cross of the vernal equinox, between two “thieves”. That would make his story even more like that of Jesus Christ, who lived after these myths were created.
The cross was a very popular symbol long before the Christian era and that Horus was one of many pre-Christian gods and goddesses who are depicted on a cross or in cruciform. These facts mean that Jesus Christ”s placement on the cross is not unique in religious and mythological iconography.
The Cross in Egypt ? The Ankh Was a very sacred symbol of eternal life that can be found on countless artifacts. The Egyptians were a very religious people, and they took their faith as seriously as people do today. Jesus was referred to as the chief cornerstone (i.e., capstone) – a reference to an Egyptian pyramid. The chief cornerstone of the pyramid is same symbol for Horus, the Egyptian god and savior. Like the Egyptian pharoah, Jesus was called a shepherd who rules the nations with a staff.
Horus was a popular Egyptian god who was the son of Osiris and Isis. Osiris and Horus were both solar deities. Osiris was the setting sun, Horus the rising sun. Jesus is the rising Son and the morning star. The pharoah was considered to be an incarnation of Horus (also known as “Amen-Ra,” the sun god).
In the same way, Jesus is considered to be the incarnation of his heavenly Father. Horus was the lamb of God who took away the sins of the world. Horus had an adversary named “Set”. Jesus’ adversary was “Satan”. The story of Horus can be found in “The Egyptian Book of the Dead (also known as the “Papyrus of Ani”) written over 3,000 years before the birth of Christ.
It is written that both Horus and Jesus existed before their incarnations.
Horus was born of the virgin Isis on December 25th in a cave/manger
Horus’ birth was announced by a star in the East and attended by three wise men.
The infant Horus was carried out of Egypt to escape the wrath of Typhon/Seth. The infant Jesus was carried into Egypt to escape the wrath of Herod. Concerning the infant Jesus, the New Testament states the following prophecy: “Out of Egypt have I called my son.” (Matt. 2:15)
Horus’s personal epithet was “Iusa,” the “ever-becoming son” of “Ptah,” the “Father.”
The adoration of the Virgin and Child is connected with both the adoration of Isis and the infant Horus and the adoration of Mary and infant Jesus. In the catacombs at Rome are pictures of the baby Horus being held by the virgin mother Isis, the original “Madonna and Child.”
Osiris, Isis, and Horus are the principal trinity of the Egyptian religions.
God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit is the Christian trinity.
