The Egyptian God Horus and Jesus

I was looking into pre-Christian era crosses online today. Almost synchronistically there was a television program on tonight called, "The Pagan Christ". I don't watch t.v. but my husband called me out of my computer room because he thought I might want to see it. It had already been on about 15 minutes when I walked in, and right about when I sat down the show displayed an image of a man on a cross. It turns out, this image was around before Christ. Here is the image:

The show pointed out some similarities between the Egyptian god Horus and Jesus Christ. I won't get into them all here, because there are so many. If you would like to see them for yourself, visit this page: http://www.religioustolerance.org/chr_jcpa5.htm

I was able to find the segment on YouTube, and watched the beginning of the show that I had missed. It raises some interesting questions.

There are five parts; here is the first:

There are many who believe Yeshu was an Essene. The link between the Essenes and the Egyptians is strong. One could reasonably conceive of Yeshu as a Horus worsipper...and a follower of the Aten.

That's the reason why I can't tolerate religion. They can't tolerate one another. Especially fanatical Christians.

Hi Ben,

You know of so many sources of knowledge; I find it hard to know where to even begin to learn what you have.

Thank you for these sources. I have been looking around the Essenes site.

Hi Siegfried,

What about tolerating intolerance?

Sophia said...

Well, I should reword that. Not really tolerating it, I suppose, but forgiving those that are blind.

Hi Paul,
