  1. Horus was identified with the Tau (cross).

Krishna

Another great pagan christ was Krishna of India. In the sacred books of India it is recorded that Krishna was born of the virgin Devaki, that his nativity was heralded by a star, and that though of royal lineage, he was born in a cave. (According to the apocryphal gospel of Protevagelion, a work attributed to James, the brother of Jesus, the Christian savior was born in a cave.) At the time of Krishna’s birth, the cave was mysteriously illuminated. (At the birth of Jesus, “there was a great light in the cave, so that the eyes of Joseph and the Midwife could not bear it.”) The infant Krishna spoke to his mother soon after his birth. (“Jesus spake even when he was in the cradle, and said to his mother: ‘Mary I am Jesus the Son of God, that Word which thou did bring forth according to the declaration of the Angel Gabriel unto thee, and my Father hath sent me for the salvation of the world’ ” according to the apocryphal gospels of 1 and 2 Infancy. )

Krishna was born while his foster-father Nanda was in the city to pay his tax to the king. (Jesus was born while his foster-father Joseph was in the city to pay his tax to the govenor.) The babe Krishna was adored by cowherds. (The infant Jesus was adored by shepherds.) King Kansa sought the life of the Indian Christ by ordering the massacre of all male children born during the same night as was Krishna. (This is almost identical with the story of the slaughter of the innocents, ordered by Herod.) Nanda was warned by a heavenly voice to flee with the infant Krishna across the Jumna River, to Gakul, to escape King Kansa. (Joseph was warned by a voice in a dream to flee into Egypt with the Christ-child to escape the wrath of Herod.) Krishna performed many miracles in the city of Mathura. (Jesus, while in Egypt, lived in a town named Matarea, where he performed many miracles.)

Krishna was a crucified christ. He is pictured in Indian art as hanging on a cross with arms extended. (Dr. Thomas Inman, a celebrated authority on pagan and Christian symbolism, states that: “Christna, whose history so closely resembles our Lord’s, was also like him in his being crucified.”) Krishna was pierced by an arrow while hanging on the cross. (Jesus was pierced by a spear during his crucifixion.) The light of the sun was blotted out at noon on the day of Krishna’s death. (The sun was darkened from the sixth to the ninth hour on the day of the crucifixion of Christ.) Krishna descended into hell to raise the dead before returning to the abode of the gods. (We read of Jesus Christ that: “He descended into hell, and on the third day rose again from the dead.” The Descent into Hell of Jesus is described in the apocryphal gospel of Nicodemus.) Krishna rose from the grave, and finally ascended bodily to heaven in the presence of a multitude of spectators. (A similar story is related of Jesus Christ.) In Indian art Krishna literally means “The Black.” (In early Christian art Jesus is almost invariably represented as a Black man.)

  13. The catacombs of Rome have pictures of the infant Horus being held by his mother, not unlike the modern-day images of “Madonna and Child.”

Not Just Jesus: Other Virgin Births

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

A lot of us like to think that the Bible is the original, absolute, inviolate word of God. But that comes into question when we realize that many of the biblical stories occur in other, older religions.

According to academia, there are at least 32 stories of other virgin births in ancient cultures of bygone eras. The legends of the surrounding pagan cultures were so influential in the first century that the Early Church was forced to imitate and incorporate them to have their ‘new’ Christian religion accepted.

What does this have to do with law of attraction? Any time we can stretch our minds about what we think is the ‘truth’, we expand our allowing and our beliefs in possibilities. It makes using law of attraction easier when we know how malleable our beliefs are; how flexible our rituals, and even how ancient and diverse are our gods.

Here are just a few of the parallels between Horus, Krishna, Buddha, Jesus and 27 more (and this is a long article)

Horus

The Legend of Horus is one of the most ancient myths in Egypt, and it was central to the ancient Egyptian state religion. He was worshipped three thousand years before Jesus and his worship lasted into the common era. The followers of Horus invaded Egypt in pre-dynastic history (before 3000 B.C.E.).

He is often shown as an infant cradled by his mother Isis. He avenged his father’s murder, and became recognized as the God of civil order and justice.

Both were conceived of a virgin.

  1. Both were the “only begotten son” of a god (either Osiris or Yahweh)
  2. Horus’s mother was Meri, Jesus’s mother was Mary.
  3. Horus’s foster father was called Jo-Seph, and Jesus’s foster father was Joseph.
  4. Both foster fathers were of royal descent.
  5. Both were born in a cave (although sometimes Jesus is said to have been born in a stable).
  6. Both had their coming announced to their mother by an angel.
  7. Horus; birth was heralded by the star Sirius (the morning star). Jesus had his birth heralded by a star in the East (the sun rises in the East).
  8. Ancient Egyptians celebrated the birth of Horus on December 21 (the Winter Solstice). Modern Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus on December 25.
  9. Both births were announced by angels (this is not the same as number 7).
  10. Both had shepherds witnessing the birth.
  11. Horus was visited at birth by “three solar deities” and Jesus was visited by “three wise men”.
  12. After the birth of Horus, Herut tried to have Horus murdered. After the birth of Jesus, Herod tried to have Jesus murdered.

This is true there was another Virgen birth way before Christ.  It was a Goddess birth who gave birth to a son.
