Christ in Egypt: The Horus-Jesus Connection

// <![CDATA[//

“At last, the book that proves many of the most important characteristics of the gospel story of Jesus and the Christian religion could be found in ancient Egypt for centuries prior to Christ’s alleged advent!”

A professional archaeologist endorses Christ in Egypt:

“Your scholarship is relentless!”

“The research conducted by D.M. Murdock concerning the myth of Jesus Christ is certainly both valuable and worthy of consideration.”

kenneth l. feder archaeologist archeologist“My name is Ken Feder. I am an archaeologist, and I play one on TV, as a talking head in various documentaries on the National Geographic Channel, the Discovery Channel, the History Channel, ScFi, BBC Horizon, and, as it turns out, even the Weather Channel. I have written several books on archaeology, including Frauds, Myths, and Mysteries: Science and Pseudoscience In Archaeology (about to go into its 7th edition). Frauds is revered by some and hated by others, which is an indication I must have done something right in that work.

“Having conducted research and written extensively over the course of the last thirty years, I think I have developed a good eye for recognizing valuable research that is worthy of serious consideration when I see it. And the research conducted by D.M. Murdock concerning the myth of Jesus Christ is certainly both valuable and worthy of consideration.

“Read her book. Criticize it if you believe it deserves criticism. But to dismiss it or get apoplectic about her thesis simply because it shocks you is plainly foolish.”

“Everyone who reads Murdock’s Christ in Egypt should understand that the sources she cites are anything but marginal or questionable. In fact, her sources are, at least as far as I can tell, entirely within the Egyptology mainstream and many are, in fact, revered, and deservedly so, within the community of Egyptologists. The fact that these sources are mainstream, highly respected, or even seminal does not, of course, make them right about the origins of the Christ story. However, it does make them, and Murdock’s thesis in which she incorporates their work, impossible to dismiss out of hand. Read her book. Criticize it if you believe it deserves criticism. But to dismiss it or get apoplectic about her thesis simply because it shocks you is plainly foolish.”

Description

Destined to be a classic enjoyed by both the professional scholar and the layperson, this comparative religion book contains a startling perspective of the extraordinary history of the Egyptian religion and its profound influence upon the later Christian faith. Christ in Egypt: The Horus-Jesus Connection by D.M. Murdock, also known as “Acharya S,” uses a massive amount of primary sources and the works of highly credentialed authorities in relevant fields to demonstrate that the popular gods Horus and Jesus possessed many characteristics and attributes in common.

Drawing from thousands of ancient Egyptian texts in an assortment of translations along with the original language, as well as modern research in a number of other languages, controversial independent scholar of comparative religion and mythology D.M. Murdock puts together an astonishing amount of fascinating information that shows many of our most cherished religious beliefs and concepts did not appear suddenly out of the blue but have long histories in numerous cultures found around the globe, including and especially in the glorious Land of the Pharaohs.

“At almost 600 pages, this is a big book, folks, jam-packed full of important information that you can’t find elsewhere in one volume!”

“I find myself in full agreement with Acharya S/D.M. Murdock…”

Dr. Robert M. Price, The Pre-Nicene New Testament“…We are in agreement on the thoroughly syncretic character of primitive Christianity, evolving from earlier mythemes and rituals, especially those of Egypt. It is almost as important in Christ in Egypt to argue for an astro-religious origin for the mythemes, and there, too, I agree with the learned author….

“…I find it undeniable that…many, many of the epic heroes and ancient patriarchs and matriarchs of the Old Testament were personified stars, planets, and constellations…”

“…for Egyptian influence to have become integral to Israelite religion even from pre-biblical times is only natural given the fact that from 3000 BCE Egypt ruled Canaan. We are not talking about some far-fetched borrowing from an alien cultural sphere….

“Osiris is doubly resurrected as his son Horus, too, and he, too, is eventually raised from the dead by  Isis.

“[Horus] is pictured as spanning the dome of heaven, his arms stretched out in a cruciform pattern.”

“As such, he seems to represent the common Platonic astronomical symbol of the sun’s path crossing the earth’s ecliptic…. Acharya S ventures that ‘the creators of the Christ myth did not simply take an already formed story, scratch out the name Osiris or Horus, and replace it with Jesus’ (p. 25). But I am pretty much ready to go the whole way and suggest that Jesus is simply Osiris going under a new name, Jesus, ‘Savior,’ hitherto an epithet, but made into a name on Jewish soil….

“…Eusebius and others already pegged the Therapeutae (Essene-like Jewish monks in Egypt) as early Christians, even Philo the Jewish Middle Platonist of Alexandria) as a Christian!… It seems hard to deny that even Christians as ‘late’ as the New Testament writers were directly dependent upon Jewish thinkers in  Egypt, just like the Gnostic Christian writers after them. And if the common Christian believer saw no difference between Jesus and Horus in Egypt…

“I find myself in full agreement with Acharya S/D.M. Murdock: ‘we assert that Christianity constitutes Gnosticism historicized and Judaized, likewise representing a synthesis of Egyptian, Jewish and Greek religion and mythology, among others [including Buddhism, via King Asoka’s missionaries] from around the “known world”‘ (p. 278). ‘Christianity is largely the product of Egyptian religion being Judaized and historicized’ (p. 482).”

Dr. Robert M. Price, The Pre-Nicene New Testament

“The best researched book I have had the privilege of reading!”

“I am about half-way through Christ in Egypt, and it is, indeed, without a doubt the best researched book I have had the privilege of reading.”

Rodger Ervin

“I’m flabbergasted at what a great job you have done!”

“Wow wow wow. I’ve been reading your book as I’m curled up in beddie-by every night, and it’s fantabulous.

“I love it. I’m flabbergasted at what a great job you have done!

“Thanks so much for writing this book!”

Joan d/Arc, ParanoiaMagazine.com

“What a magnificent work!”

“This is the book that should convince any rational reader that the Jesus story is the Horus story is the story of the heavens and of the seasons; the story containing motifs outlining humankind’s year by year struggle to survive and progress; the story of birth, life, death, and resurrection….

“Humanity has forgotten the stories it once told itself. But Acharya’s meticulous research and ‘joining up of the dots’ found in Christ in Egypt is helping us to remember, to remember that we are not the sinful pieces of trash that organised religion would have us believe we are…

“We need to see clearly. We need to remember clearly.

Who controls the past controls the future; who controls the present controls the past.
-George Orwell, 1984

“We must take control of our futures by taking control our past by remembering what truly was. Acharya is helping us to remember what was and why.”

Allan J., UK

“The best book on the subject!”

Christ in Egypt is very well written with Acharya’s lovely style that I’ve come to appreciate. It’s very scholarly, yet a fascinating read. Certain topics require a very indepth analysis, which is performed wonderfully throughout the book. Every reference and source is cited meticulously – cross-referencing primary sources 4, 5 and 6 different ways with credentialed scholars in their field of expertise across several languages, including a variety of translations of the ancient texts – WOW!

CIE takes this very contentious topic to a whole new level that has the potential to change Egyptology & comparative religion as we know it. She explains the academic gap between theologians and historians. Many universities began as religious divinity schools Harvard, Yale, Princeton – CIE page 505. We need an Astrotheology Department at our universities to fill this monumental void! I wish I’d had Acharya’s work available to me as a child.”

Charles Johnson, TX

“No better resource available!”

“Even though there are many books out there that discuss Christianity and Egyptian religion, Murdock’s Christ in Egypt is unique. She realized how much info was out there, and no one had yet collected it all in one place before. Her enormous goal was to find every scholarly reference to the Egyptian correlations to Christianity. In doing this, she researched materials that had never been published before and materials that had never appeared in English before. At this time, there is no better resource available.”

Benjamin Steele, IA

“An excellent read!”

“I just finished reading Christ in Egypt and found it to be an excellent read.

“Well done and useful.”

Angel, CA

“The most enlightening and well researched read on the origins of Christianity.”

“I could hardly wait to get my hands on this tremendous book: Christ in Egypt: The Horus Jesus Connection.

“This well researched book is accessible both to the general reader and to the scholar interested in the origins of the Christian belief system.

“The author has probably collected every scholarly reference to the Egyptian correlations to Christianity. In doing this, she researched materials that had never been published before and many that until now had never appeared in English.

“This book, which surely will become a classic, is the most enlightening and well researched I have ever read on the origins of Christianity.”

M.G. Ketteridge, UK
