That’s something worth thinking about. See the previous videos to get a better understanding of this one.
Now this next video is more controversial. It does require research to confirm everything that is presented. I will try my best to draw a decent conclusion to the video. Until then, be patient and see the whole thing:
I love the music nearing the end of the video. My first thought was, “Strange. Could the story of Jesus really be fabricated?” Taking into consideration the things explained in the previous video, it may not be too far fetched. Then again, not all the pieces of the puzzle fit.
I read a bit more on the story and learned that Horus’ mother’s name was in fact Isis. It doesn’t make sense for ancient names to suddenly change to modern ones! His Father was Osiris and his brother, Set. How can the wife/mother be Mary if those are the names of the rest of the family? Interestingly, her husband is also her brother. Concerning her being a virgin, check this out:
PROOF THAT ISIS WAS A VIRGIN MOTHER, FROM PRIMARY SOURCES AND THE WORKS OF HIGHLY CREDENTIALED AUTHORITIES
The virginity of Horus’s mother, Isis, has been disputed, because in one myth she is portrayed as impregnating herself with Osiris’s severed phallus. In depictions of Isis’s impregnation, the goddess conceives Horus “while she fluttered in the form of a hawk over the corpse of her dead husband.” …in an image from the tomb of Ramesses VI, Horus is born out of Osiris’s corpse without Isis even being in the picture. In another tradition, Horus is conceived when the water of the Nile—identified as Osiris—overflows the river’s banks, which are equated with Isis. The “phallus” in this latter case is the “sharp star Sothis” or Sirius, the rising of which signaled the Nile flood. Hence, in discussing these myths we are not dealing with “real people” who have body parts.
‘Osiris…begetting a son by Isis, who hovers over him in the form of a hawk.’

The birth of Jesus
Obviously we know that Jesus was not born on 25 December so that cancels out Horus’ sunrise on that day. Here is some info I looked up on His real birth:
The month of Jesus birth can actually be calculated with reference to the conception of John the Baptist:
- Luke 1:5 says that John’s father, Zacharias, was “a member of the Abijah division of the Temple service corps.” (Living Bible)
- 1 Chronicles 24:15 assigned the priests of the Abijah division to begin temple service at the start of the 9th week of the year. But at the end of the week, Pentecost had begun, so he would have remained on duty until the end of the 10th week.
- Luke 1:23-24 records that Zacharias returned immediately to his home, and that John was conceived shortly thereafter – probably during the last half of Sivan, the 3rd month in the Jewish calendar.
- Allowing for a normal 9 months pregnancy, John would have been born in the springtime.
- Luke 1:36 records that the angel came to Mary when John’s mother Elizabeth was 6 months pregnant.
- Luke 1:31 reports that Mary conceived very shortly after the angel’s visit.
- Assuming a normal, 9 month pregnancy, Jesus would have been born about 6 months after John – sometime in the fall of the year
The Fall starts in September. Now this link explains extensively Jesus’ birth according to the Jewish calendars and Old Testament passages.
Here’s how the whole “25 December” thing came about:
The tradition for December 25th is actually quite ancient. Hippolytus, in the second century A.D., argued that this was Christ’s birthday. Meanwhile, in the eastern Church, January 6th was the date followed.
But in the fourth century, John Chrysostom argued that December 25th was the correct date and from that day till now, the Church in the East, as well as the West, has observed the 25th of December as the official date of Christ’s birth.
We can blame the ancient church for a large part of our uncertainty. You see, they did not celebrate Christ’s birth. At all. To them, it was insignificant. They were far more concerned with his death . . . and resurrection.
The three kings
Here is some info I looked up on this:
When Jesus Christ was born, men–known as magi–came from the east to worship him. Were they wise men . . . or astrologers?
Matthew begins his second chapter with these words: “Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, ‘Where is he who has been born king of the Jews? For we saw his star in the east, and have come to worship him.'”
Though Matthew doesn’t tell us much, over-zealous Christians throughout church history have dogmatically filled in the blanks. By the 6th century A.D., these dark strangers were given thrones and names: Gaspar, Melchior, and Balthazar were the alleged names of these alleged kings. But this has nothing to do with the biblical story: we really have no idea what their names were–nor even their number. There could have been 3 or 300 as far as we know! But one thing we do know for sure: they were not royalty. The ancient magi were reilgious and political advisors to eastern kings–but there wasn’t a drop of blue blood among them.
But what about these ancient magi? Were they astrologers? After all, they followed a star to Bethlehem.
We might answer this in three ways: First, not all magi were astrologers, for Daniel the prophet was the chief of the magi in Nebuchadnezzar’s court. Through his influence, undoubtedly many of the magi carried on their religious and political duties as worshippers of the One true God.
Second, there are some biblical scholars who believe that Isaiah predicted that a star would appear when the Messiah was born. If this interpretation is correct, then the magi who worshipped the newborn king were clearly following in Daniel’s train, for he almost surely taught them from Isaiah.
Third, although a few believe that the ‘star’ they saw was a natural phenomenon–such as a conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter–this cannot explain how the star stood right over Bethlehem. Clearly, the ‘star’ was completely of supernatural origin. If so, it probably had nothing to do with astrology.
Therefore, the magi most likely did not subscribe to such superstitious folly. If so, they were truly wisemen .
NB: To find out about the life of Horus and see if he really did the same things as Jesus is probably an exhaustive study. I have read that some of the “Christian holidays” celebrated are actually pagan ones including the month and day such as Easter and Christmas. The reason I mention this is because I have read several sites that talk about how a lot of Christian practices are adopted from ancient times. That’s something worth looking into and seeing what discoveries are made.
Death and resurrection
Here is someone that argues against the similarities of Jesus and Horus’ death and resurrection:
David J. MacLeod argues that the resurrection of Osiris differs from Jesus Christ, saying:
“Perhaps the only pagan god for whom there is a resurrection is the Egyptian Osiris. Close examination of this story shows that it is very different from Christ’s resurrection. Osiris did not rise; he ruled in the abode of the dead. As biblical scholar, Roland de Vaux, wrote, ‘What is meant of Osiris being “raised to life?” Simply that, thanks to the ministrations of Isis, he is able to lead a life beyond the tomb which is an almost perfect replica of earthly existence. But he will never again come among the living and will reign only over the dead. This revived god is in reality a “mummy” god.’… No, the mummified Osiris was hardly an inspiration for the resurrected Christ… As Yamauchi observes, ‘Ordinary men aspired to identification with Osiris as one who had triumphed over death. But it is a mistake to equate the Egyptian view of the afterlife with the biblical doctrine of resurrection. To achieve immortality the Egyptian had to meet three conditions: First, his body had to be preserved by mummification. Second, nourishment was provided by the actual offering of daily bread and beer. Third, magical spells were interred with him. His body did not rise from the dead; rather elements of his personality – his Ba and Ka – continued to hover over his body.'”
Yes this does raise some questions: How did Horus die if he even did? According to the video Horus ruled with Ra to take over all of Egypt. I read that as ruler, Horus had the one eye to govern the day and the other eye to govern the night. So his eyes are the sun and moon. His right eye was the sun. After losing his left eye in the fight with Set, the moon’s light became dim! We know of course that God created day and night:
Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also Genesis 1:16
It seems as though Horus never died if his eyes are indeed the moon and sun. This means, according to ancient Egypt, if Horus died there will be no day and night! Assuming this is the case, it then cancels out his death and resurrection!
I have tried my best to research as much as possible on the story of Jesus. I have managed to break a lot of beliefs about the story of Horus and how it relates to Jesus. Nothing should ever be taken at face value! I would encourage you to confirm everything I have said so you ca see for yourself if there is anything I missed. This is hardly something you can easily sum up in one post, but it does bring a new perspective on things. Further research will always, at the very least, open one’s mind if it does not shed greater light on any subject.
