Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Pagan Christ (Hardcover)
Six years ago I went on a Nile cruise visiting the ancient Egyptian temples from Thebes to Abu Simbel. We learned about the local deities and also the more important Gods such as Isis and her son Horus. The bible informs us that "There is nothing new under the sun" Which is true. Moses led the Hebru out of Egypt who were not Jewish until Moses got the 10 Commandments. Jacob married an Egyptian priests daughter and learned how to read the cup. There was a tremendous amount of discourse between the different tribes in the area and it is no surprise that some plagarism took place.
The early Christian church borrowed the Isis/Horus story for their own story of Mary/Jesus and supressed all other conflicting beliefs. Tom Harpur the author of "The Pagan Christ" being an ordained priest has explained how the Christian faith has developed. You need to read the book with an open mind and I promise you that you will not be disappointed.
