In addition to the multitude already examined are many other aspects of the Bible and the Judeo-Christian tradition that can be found in other, older cultures and mythologies.


To outline them all would require another volume, which would include such concepts as Ash Wednesday, the Assumption of the Virgin, Gog and Magog, Son of Man, Immanuel and the Stations of the Cross, among others.


However, some of the more important aspects are as follows:

The Alpha and Omega
In the gospel tale, Jesus is purported to be the “Alpha and Omega, the beginning and end,” but these sentiments were plagiarized from older sources, including the Goddess Isis, in whose temple at Sais, Egypt, it was carved,

“I am all that has been, that is, and that will be.”

As Walker says,

“Alpha and omega, the first and last letters of the alphabet, were frequently applied to the Goddess who united in birth and death.”

Angels and Devils
The concept of angels and devils in no way originated with Judaism or Christianity but is found in many other cultures around the globe. The Jews, in fact, took the names of some of their angels from the Persians.

Although Judaism and Christianity have portrayed them exclusively as male, a trend largely ignored by angel enthusiasts today, angels were originally considered female in several cultures, such as the Indian and Persian. Indeed, the seven archangels of Christianity are masculine remakes of the Seven Hathors of Egypt, which were female.

As part of the mythos, the good and bad angels (devils or demons) actually represent the angles or aspects of the zodiac, whose influences were determined to be either benevolent or malevolent.



The term “Antichrist” has been applied to numerous rulers and dissidents over the centuries.


Because of the hideous and evil abuses of the Catholic Church for centuries, a number of popes were deemed “Antichrists,” including Clement VII. Anyone who claims that Jesus Christ never existed could also be called “Antichrist,” a title that eminent philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche was proud to claim, because he viewed "Christ" as an oppression.


Although many people have been persecuted for denying Jesus Christ, Christ himself is made to say,

“And every one who speaks a word against the Son of man will be forgiven”

(Lk. 12:10)

It is clear from biblical writings that during the first centuries of the Christian era, numerous “Christs” were running about the Roman world, jockeying for position.


These individuals were such a threat to the “true” Christ’s representatives that they felt the need to dispense with the competition by forging the Epistles of John sometime during the second century:

“Children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come.”

(1 Jn. 2:18)

Walker relates the true meaning of “antichrist”:

Antichrist was the Christian equivalent of the Chaldean Aciel, lord of the nether world, counterbalancing the solar god of heaven.

In other words, it was the night sky.


In the earlier Persian version of the mythos, it was the devil Ahriman who was to bring his legions against the holy nation, which in this case was Persia, or Iran, where Armageddon was to be fought.


Thus, Armageddon is yet another age-sold concept that did not originate with Judaism, Christianity or the Bible.


Baptism is quite common around the world, long predating the Christian era, as is evidenced by the fact that it was already in practice when Jesus encountered John the Baptist.


As Massey says,

“Baptismal regeneration, transfiguration, transubstantiation, the resurrection and ascension, were all Egyptian mysteries.”

Baptism was done not only by the sprinkling of water but also by immersion into it.


It was also by “holy wind/spirit” and by fire, the latter of which in actuality was popular in many parts of the world and is considered “Zoroastrian.” In the baptism by fire, the participant, willing or otherwise, is generally passed through the fire unharmed.


Baptism by fire was still practiced as of the last century in India and Scotland.


Many people today are aware that Christmas, December 25th, is the winter solstice and not the actual birthdate of the Jewish savior-god, yet they continue to look for some other birthdate, because this was one of the numerous significant “historical” facts conveniently overlooked by the gospel writers.


Over the centuries, a number of birthdates had been put forth before the Western church decided to incorporate the December 25th element of the typical sun god mythos, in large part to usurp the followers of Mithra.

In addition, not a few people have noticed the irreconcilability of the December birthdate with the circumstances of the birth, which could not have taken place in the winter, with “shepherds tending their flock,” etc. A date earlier adopted in Christianity and still maintained by the Eastern Orthodox church is January 6th, which would also not be correct according to the biblical tale, since it is also winter.


Hayyim ben Yehoshua relates the origins of the January 6th date:

“Originally the eastern Christians believed that [Jesus] was born on 6 January... Osiris-Aion was said to be born of the virgin Isis on the 6 January and this explains the earlier date for Christmas.”

The early Western Church fathers assigned two birthdays to Jesus: One at Christmas (winter solstice) and the other at Easter (vernal equinox), which is to be expected, since these dates are not historical but are reflective of the various stages of the sun.


The dual birthdate is found in Egyptian mythology as well, as Horus was said to have been born as a babe on December 25th and to have been reborn as a man on March 25th, the same date traditionally held as the resurrection of the Savior Adonis, as well as of Christ, as is related by Byzantine writer Cedrenus:

The first day of the month... corresponds to the 25th of March... On that day Gabriel saluted Mary, in order to make her conceive the Savior... On that very same day, our God Savior (Christ Jesus), after the termination of his career, arose from the dead; that is, what our forefathers called the Passover, or the passage of the Lord.

The “babe” aspect reflects the “smallness” of the sun in December (northern hemisphere), while the “man” born again or resurrected in spring signifies the sun passing over (Passover or “Crossification”) the celestial equator, when the day and night are briefly equalized, and the day then begins to become longer than the night.


Thus, it was said that the solar hero had two birthdays and two mothers.

Mangasarian concludes:

The selection of the twenty-fifth of December as [Jesus'] birthday is not only an arbitrary one, but that date, having been from time immemorial dedicated to the Sun, the inference is that the Son of God and the Sun of heaven enjoying the same birthday, were at one time identical beings.


The fact that Jesus’ death was accompanied with the darkening of the Sun, and that the date of his resurrection is also associated with the position of the Sun at the time of the vernal equinox, is a further intimation that we have in the story of the birth, death, and resurrection of Jesus, an ancient and nearly universal Sunmyth, instead of verifiable historical events.

The Cross and Crucifix
The cross and crucifix are very ancient symbols found around the world long prior to the supposed advent of the Christian savior. In the gospel story Jesus tells his disciples to “take up the cross” and follow him.


Obviously, the cross already existed and was a well-known symbol, such that Jesus did not even have to explain this strange statement about an object that, we are led to believe, only gained significance after Jesus died on it.

The preChristian reverence for the cross and the crucifix, e.g., the cross with a man on it, is admitted by the “holy Father” Minucius Felix:

As for the adoration of the cross which you (Pagans) object against us (Christians)... that we neither adore crosses nor desire them; you it is, ye Pagans... who are the most likely people to adore wooden crosses... for what else are your ensigns, flags, and standards, but crosses gilt and beautiful. Your victorious trophies not only represent a simple cross, but a cross with a man on it.

The early Christians were actually repulsed by the image of a man hanging on the cross, which was not adopted by the Christian church until the 7th century. In fact, the crucifix with a man on it had been imported to Rome from India ages before the Christian era.


Indeed, as Walker states,

“Early Christians even repudiated the cross because it was pagan... Early images of Jesus represented him not on a cross, but in the guise of the Osirian or Hermetic ‘Good Shepherd,’ carrying a lamb.”

As stated, the original occupant of the cross was a lamb, not a man. Like the image of the man on the cross, that of the crucified lamb was also very ancient, preceding the Christian era by centuries.


As Taylor recounts:

On a Phoenician medal found in the ruins of Citium, and engraved in Dr. Clarke’s Travels, and proved by him to be Phoenician, are inscribed not only the cross, but the rosary, or string of beads, attached to it, together with the identical Lamb of God, which taketh away the sins of the world.

The cross was also revered by the ancient people called the Pygmies.


As A. Churchward relates:

This primary Sign or Symbol, fashioned in the beginning by the African Pygmies to represent “The One Great Spirit,” has been carried on by the various cults during human evolution, down to the present-day Cross of the Christian Doctrines; it has always represented the One Great One.

Churchward thus reveals that the Pygmies were very early monotheists, evidently thousands of years before the Judeo-Christian era. He also reveals the true meaning of the cross:

Fundamentally the Cross was astronomical. A Cross with equal arms denotes the time of equal day and night, and is a figure of the equinox.

As Derek Partridge says,

“What a cross with a circle in it... truly represents is the sun waning or dying on the zodiac, and not a man.”

The cross is the celestial emblem of the sun but it also serves as a phallic symbol.


As Carpenter relates,

“The well-known T-shaped cross was in use in pagan lands long before Christianity, as a representation of the male member...”

Walker reiterates,

“The cross was also a male symbol of the phallic Tree of Life.”

Of the Pagan origins of Christianity and the cross, Higgins concludes:

Mr. Ledwick has observed that the presence of Heathen devices and crosses on the same coin are not unusual, as Christians in those early times were for the most part Semi pagans.


This is diametrically opposed to all the doctrines of the Protestants about the early purity of the religion of Christ, and its subsequent corruption by the Romists...


In fact it is mere nonsense, for there can be no doubt that the cross was one of the most common of the Gentile symbols, and was adopted by the Christians like all their other rites and ceremonies from the Gentiles...

Easter celebrations date back into remotest antiquity and are found around the world, as the blossoming of spring did not escape the notice of the ancients, who revered this life-renewing time of the year, when winter had passed and the sun was “born again.”


Easter, of course, is merely the Passover, and Jesus represents the Passover Lamb ritually sacrificed every year by a number of cultures, including the Egyptians, possibly as early as 4,000 years ago and continuing to this day in some places.


As ben Yehoshua relates:

The occurrence of Passover at the same time of year as the pagan “Easter” festivals is not coincidental. Many of the Pessach customs were designed as Jewish alternatives to pagan customs. The pagans believed that when their nature god (such as Tammuz, Osiris or Attis) died and was resurrected, his life went into the plants used by man as food.


The matza made from the spring harvest was his new body and the wine from the grapes was his new blood. In Judaism, matza was not used to represent the body of a god but the poor man’s bread which the Jews ate before leaving Egypt...


When the early Christians noticed the similarities between Pessach customs and pagan customs, they came full circle and converted the Pessach customs back to their old pagan interpretations. The Seder became the last supper of Jesus, similar to the last supper of Osiris commemorated at the Vernal Equinox.


The matza and wine once again became the body and blood of a false god, this time Jesus. Easter eggs are again eaten to commemorate the resurrection of a “god” and also the “rebirth” obtained by accepting his sacrifice on the cross.

Easter is “Pessach” in Hebrew, “Pascha” in Greek and “Pachons” in Latin, derived from the Egyptian “PaKhunsu,” Khunsu being an epithet for Horus.


As Massey says,

“The festival of Khunsu, or his birthday, at the vernal equinox, was at one time celebrated on the twenty-fifth day of the month named after him, Pa Khunsu.”

The Easter celebration was so ubiquitous prior to the Christian era that any number of sources are probable for its inclusion in Christianity.


As Jackson states:

The Easter ceremonies still performed in Greek and Roman Catholic churches in Europe are so similar to the ancient rites of the Adonic cult that Sir J.G. Frazer has concluded that these churches actually derived these rites from the ancient worshippers of Adonis.

And Walker relates:

Christians ever afterward kept Easter Sunday with carnival processions derived from the mysteries of Attis. Like Christ, Attis arose when “the sun makes the day for the first time longer than the night”...


But the spring Holy Week was not really Christian. Its origin was a universal Indo-European tradition of extreme antiquity, probably traceable to the Holi festivals of India which celebrated the rebirth of spring with joyous orgies.

The Easter celebration was also found in Mexico, to the astonishment of the invading Catholics:

According to the Franciscan monk Sahagun, our best authority on the Aztec religion, the sacrifice of the human god fell at Easter or a few days later, so that, if he is right, it would correspond in date as well as in character to the Christian festival of the death and resurrection of the Redeemer... Women came forth with children in their arms and presented them to him, saluting him as a god. For “he passed for our Lord God; the people acknowledged him as the Lord.”

In Anglo-Saxon, Easter or Eostre is goddess of the dawn, corresponding to Ishtar, Astarte, Astoreth and Isis. The word “Easter” shares the same root with “east” and “eastern,” the direction of the rising sun.

Furthermore, the fact that there is no set date for Easter is only explainable within the mythos and not as the historical death and resurrection of a savior-god.


As Jackson relates:

Everyone knows that Easter is a roving date in the calendar, since it is the first Sunday after the first full moon after the Vernal Equinox (the beginning of Spring).


Easter, therefore, cannot be the date of the death of any historical personage. Two dates are given in the New Testament for the time of crucifixion, namely: the 14th and 15th of the month of Nisan. Why this discrepancy?


The truth explanation was given by Gerald Massey:

“The Synoptics say that Jesus was crucified on the 15th of the month of Nisan. John affirms that it was on the 14th of the month. This serious rift runs through the very foundation!... The crucifixion (or Crossing) was, and still is, determined by the full moon of Easter. This, in the lunar reckoning, would be on the 14th in a month of twenty-eight days; in the solar month of thirty days it was reckoned to occur on the 15th of the month.


Both unite, and the rift closes in proving the Crucifixion to have been astronomical, just as it was in Egypt, where the two dates can be identified.”

The date of Easter, when the godman was purportedly crucified and resurrected, was debated for centuries.


One “distinguished churchman,” as Eusebius calls him, Anatolius, reveals the meaning of Easter and of Christ, as well as the fact that astrology was a known and respected science used in Christianity, when he says:

On this day [March 22] the sun is found not only to have reached the first sign of the Zodiac, but to be already passing through the fourth day within it. This sign is generally known as the first of the twelve, the equinoctial sign, the beginning of months, head of the cycle, and start of the planetary course...


Aristobolus adds that it is necessary at the Passover Festival that not only the sun but the moon as well should be passing through an equinoctial sign. There are two of these signs, one in spring, one in autumn, diametrically opposed to each other...


Heaven and Hell
The concepts of heaven and hell were not introduced by the Judeo-Christian tradition but existed for millennia in other cultures, such as the Persian and Indian.


The Tibetans depict several levels of heaven and hell, which is a temporary state of mind, rather than enduring torture. The afterlife was also a common theme in the Egyptian theology, which tended to be more upbeat and less focused on the torments of hell.


As Massey relates:

The prototypes of hell and purgatory and the earthly paradise are all to be found in the Egyptian Amenta... The Egyptian hell was not a place of everlasting pain, but of extinction of those who were wicked irretrievably.


It must be admitted, to the honor and glory of the Christian deity, that a god of eternal torment is an ideal distinctly Christian, to which the Egyptians never did attain.


Theirs was the all-parental god, Father and Mother in one whose heart was thought to bleed in every wound of suffering humanity, and whose son was represented in the character of the Comforter.

The word “Hell” is also derived from the European goddess Hel, whose womb was a place of immortality.


The Christians demonized this womb and made it a place of eternal damnation, and, since volcanoes were considered entrances into the womb of Mother Earth, it became a fiery hell. The original Pagan hell had no locality and was often situated in the same place as heaven.

The nature of hell has thus varied with the culture and era. Some cultures thought hell was the harsh winter; thus, it was located near the South Pole, the “bottomless pit,” from which winter was thought to come. This hellish variety is reflected in the Judeo-Christian scriptures: Matthew and Jude both speak of a hell of darkness, while Matthew also refers to a hell of light/fire.


Matthew also speaks of a hell where the body and soul are annihilated, and one where the soul is punished for eternity. In the Bible in general, hell is depicted as being limited yet endless; it is upper and lower. Hell is also biblically portrayed as a lake of fire and brimstone, yet a bottomless pit, etc.

The descent into hell by the savior is a common occurrence within many mythologies, found in the stories of,

  • Adonis

  • Bacchus

  • Balder

  • Hercules

  • Horus

  • Jesus

  • Krishna

  • Mercury

  • Osiris

  • Quetzalcoatl

  • Zoroaster

This part of the mythos represents the sun entering into the womb of darkness, nightly and seasonally. The sun, of course, is the only expert on hell who has returned to tell about it; hence, it is the sun who is the immortal authority on the afterlife.


Graves relates the meaning of hell within the mythos:

The word astronomers use to indicate the sun in its high point of ascension is perihelion. Now you may notice there is a Hell in this word (perihelion); at least it can be traced to Hell, or Hell to it.


Helion, the last part of this word was pronounced by the Greeks Elios, and is synonymous with Acheron, which is generally translated Hell. So that we have “peri,” which means around, about, and “helion,” Hell - that is, the sun roundabout Hell.

Basically, the concepts of eternal heaven and hell have been utilized to suit the needs of the manipulating priests, who sell their wares by means of greed for heaven and fear of hell.


As Doane says:

Heaven was born of the sky, and nurtured by cunning priests, who made man a coward and a slave.


Hell was built by priests, and nurtured by the fears and servile fancies of man during the ages when dungeons of torture were a recognized part of every government, and when God was supposed to be an infinite tyrant, with infinite resources of vengeance.

The Holy Ghost
In many cultures, the Holy Ghost was considered female, as Sophia, Sapientia, or Hokmah - Wisdom - “but the patriarchy masculinized it.”


As Christ was the sun, the Holy Ghost was also the moon, which was often considered female.

Although the Holy Ghost is a cherished concept, representing God’s very spirit and goodness, Wheless remarks:

The “Holy Ghost” itself, it is claimed by the Bible and the Church, inspired and decreed by positive command all the bloody murders and tortures by the priests from Moses to the last one committed; and the spirit of them lives and is but hibernating today.


The Holy God of Israel, whose name is Merciful, thus decreed on Sinai: “He that sacrificeth to any gods [elohim], save unto Yahweh only, he shall be utterly destroyed.”

(Ex. xxii, 20).

The Holy Grail
The cup or chalice used by Christ in the biblical tale to convey “his blood” was, like so many other “relics,” considered to contain magical powers of the highest kind.


Thus, the “Holy Grail” became the object of much attention and many bloody “quests” for those seeking such powers. Of course, there was no “real” Grail, but this fact did not stop anyone from either looking for it or claiming they already possessed it.


Of the frenzy surrounding the Holy Grail, Walker says:

If the Grail was nothing more than the cup of Christ’s blood, then there was no reason for the great Quest at all. The cup of Christ’s blood was readily available to all, in every chapel; and even though it was called a holy sacrament, its discovery somehow lacked thrills. As matters turn out, to Christianize the Grail was to neutralize the magnetism of its secret nature.

Naturally, the Grail myth existed prior to the Christian era.


As Walker also relates:

The real origins of the Holy Grail were not Christian but pagan. The Grail was first Christianized in Spain from a sacred tradition of the Moors. Like the Celts’ holy Cauldron of Regeneration, which it resembled, the blood-filled vessel was a womb symbol meaning rebirth in the Oriental or Gnostic sense of reincarnation. Its connotation was feminine, not masculine.

The temple where the Grail was kept was in actuality not localized on Earth but in the heavens, surrounded by the 72 “chapels” or decans of the zodiac.


Graham gives the “deep astrological” meaning of the Grail:

The first decanate of Leo is the Crater, or Cup, the solar crucible; the second is Centaurus, the soldier on horseback. It was of this Cup the Sun of God drank, and it was this soldier that bound him and led him away to be crucified on Golgotha, Egypt, Earth.

The Holy Land
Rather than being a designation of a particular place on Earth, the “Holy Land” is the direction of east, “the place of coming forth,” where the sun god Horus appears.


Ichthys - The Fish
As we have seen, Jesus is the solar avatar of the Age of Pisces, the Fishes.


Dujardin relates the origin of the Fish and its identification with Jesus:

This title [Ichthus, the Fish] was a survival of the primitive cults of the time when the gods had the form of animals... The following facts are significant:

(1) Jesus is actually called the Fish, Ichthus

(2) He is represented in the form of a fish in the Catacombs

(3) Tertullian calls him “our fish”

(4) Heretical sects worshipped him as “the serpent,” into which animal Jahvehism transformed the primitive fish-god...

(5) The cult of the fish is attested by the story of the loaves and fishes in the Gospels...

The patriarch Joshua, who was plainly an ancient god of Palestine and bore the same name as the god of Christianity, is called the son of Nun, which signifies “son of the fish.”

Augustine said of Jesus, “he is a fish of the living water,” to which Massey might remark, “as was said of Horus.”


The Lamb of God
As we have seen, a number of godmen around the world have been considered the “Lamb of God.”


This ubiquitous designation is not reflective of hordes of historical saviors but is another aspect of the mythos, dealing with the sun in the Age of Aries.


As noted, during the Age of Taurus, the Bull motif was ever-present, while in Aries it was the Lamb:

“Afterward the Ram or Lamb became an object of adoration, when, in his turn, he opened the equinox, to deliver the world from the wintry reign of darkness and evil.”

When the sun was in Taurus, the bull was sacrificed, and in Aries, it was the lamb or ram.


Christianity was created as the sun moved into Pisces, hence the fish symbol and the fisherman motif. Yet, the old title of “Lamb of God” remained attached to Christ, and at Easter orthodox Christians still slaughter lambs, in holding with the ancient Pagan rituals. The slaughter of fish, apparently, is not bloody enough for blood-atonement purposes.


Since the symbol of the coming Age of Aquarius is a “man carrying a pitcher of water” (Lk. 22:10), we certainly hope religionists will not begin to sacrifice bottled water deliverers or waiters.


The Logia (Sayings), Sermon on the Mount, Beatitudes and Parables
Over the millennia much has been made of the “Sayings” or Logia of Jesus, also known as the,

  • “Sayings of the Savior”

  • “Sayings of the Sage” (“Logoi Sophon”)

  • the “Gnomologue”

  • the “Oracles of Jesus/the Savior"

  • the “Hebrew Oracles”

  • the “Oracles of Matthew,”

...which are one of the two main subdivisions of the gospels, the other being the narrative.


The sayings or logia constituted one of the many shared texts used separately by the evangelists in the creation of the gospels.


This logia collection was eventually publicized as the “Gospel of Q,” or just plain “Q,” for “Quelle” in German, meaning “source.”


Q scholarship reveals the logia themselves are composed of three separate texts, Q1, Q2 and Q3. Recognizing that virtually the entire gospel story is mythical, Q scholarship attempts to find the “real” Jesus in a handful of sayings represented by Q1. It should be noted that the initial logia, constituting Q1, do not have any Jewish affiliation except the word Solomon, and that Q2 and Q3 only mention the Pharisees and not Sadducees.

In finding a “historical Jesus” in Q1, historicizers are thus left with a “man” who was,

“was first remembered as a Cynic sage and only later imagined as a prophet who uttered apocalyptic warnings.”

However, in reducing Jesus to a handful of logia we are left with nearly verbatim sayings from manuscripts preceding the Christian era, demonstrating that this Q Jesus already existed, non-historically and mystically for centuries if not millennia.


In other words, the Logia Iesou, as they are called in Greek, are not, as has been supposed, the “genuine” sayings of the “historical” Jesus but represent orally transmitted traditions common in the various brotherhoods and mystery schools long before Christianity was created.

The logia are in fact repetitions of the sayings of Horus, as the Word, or Iuemhept, 3,000 years before the Christian version.


As Massey states:

The “sayings” were common property in the mysteries ages before they were ever written down.... The “logia” in the twenty-fifth chapter of Matthew reproduce not only the sayings, but also the scenery of the Last Judgment in the Great Hall of Justice, represented in the [Egyptian] Book of the Dead.

Just as the gospel writers and church fathers claimed the logia or “oracles” were recorded by Matthew, so were the sayings of Osiris recorded by the scribe Taht-Matiu. In addition, the logia are those of Dionysus, serving as part of “the mysteries” found at Samothrace, for one.

Some of the sayings constitute the famous “Sermon on the Mount,” also not original with Christ. As noted, Horus delivered a Sermon on the Mount, and there is within the Egyptian Hermetic or Trismesgistic tradition a discourse called “The Secret Sermon on the Mount.”


The Egyptian Sermon sayings also found their way into the Old Testament.


As Robertson says,

“As for the Sermon on the Mount, of which so much is made, it is no more than a patchwork of utterances found in the Old Testament.”

Carpenter elaborates:

The “Sermon on the Mount” which, with the “Lord’s Prayer” embedded in it, forms the great and accepted repository of “Christian” teaching and piety, is well known to be a collection of sayings from preChristian writings, including the Psalms, Isaiah, Ecclesiasticus, the Secrets of Enoch, the Shemonehesreh (a book of Hebrew prayers), and others...

Potter adds:

Among the words of Jesus, you will recognize that much of the “Sermon on the Mount,” especially the fifth chapter of Matthew, also the thirteenth of Mark and its parallels in the other gospels, sometimes called “The Little Apocalypse,” seem almost verbatim quotations from the Books of Enoch, the Book of Jubilees, and the Testament of the Twelve Patriarchs.

A number of the elements or beatitudes of the Sermon are found in the doctrines of the preChristian Nazarenes, such as “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”


As Massey states:

And these, for example, are amongst the “sayings” in the Book of the Nazarenes.

“Blessed are the peacemakers, the just, and ‘faithful.’”

“Feed the hungry; give drink to the thirsty; clothe the naked.”

“When thou makest a gift, seek no witness whereof, to mar thy bounty. Let thy right hand be ignorant of the gifts of the left.”

Such were common to all the Gnostic Scriptures, going back to the Egyptian.

The sayings of the Lord were pre-historic, as the sayings of David (who was an earlier Christ), the sayings of Horus the Lord, of Elija the Lord, of Mana the Lord, of Christ the Lord, as the divine directions conveyed by the ancient teachings. As the “Sayings of the Lord” they were collected in Aramaic to become the nuclei of the earliest Christian gospel according to Matthew.


So says Papias. At a later date they were put forth as the original revelation of a personal teacher, and were made the foundation of the historical fiction concocted in the four gospels that were canonized at last.

No matter who the plagiarist may be, the teaching now held to be divine was drawn from older human sources, and palmed off under false pretenses... Nothing new remained to be inculcated by the Gospel of the new teacher, who is merely made to repeat the old sayings with a pretentious air of supernatural authority; the result being that the true sayings of old are, of necessity, conveyed to later times in a delusive manner...


The most important proclamations assigned to Jesus turned out to be false. The kingdom of God was not at hand; the world was not nearing its end; the catastrophe foretold never occurred; the second coming was no more actual than the first; the lost sheep of Israel are not yet saved.

Many of the concepts contained in the logia/sayings, which are held up by Christian defenders as the core of Jesus' teachings and a reflection of his goodness and compassion, can also be found in the Vedas as spoken by the compassionate Krishna and in the Dhammapada attributed to the equally compassionate Buddha, as well as in the Tao Te Ching of the Chinese sage Lao Tzu (6th century BCE).

Likewise, a number of Jesus’s parables were derived from Buddhism and from the very ancient Indian sect of Jainism, such as those of the prodigal son and the sower.


As Larson says,

“We must thus summarize the basic teachings of Jesus, none of which were original to Him.”

The Logia Iesou constituted the sayings element of the mythos found in mystery schools that could be considered part of a “salvation cult,” whose practitioners were “spiritual physicians” in the business of “saving souls.”


Once the code of secrecy regarding the logia had been broken, numerous books were written containing them. Bishop Papias purportedly published a five volume “Exegeses/Expositions on the Sayings of the Lord,” thus demonstrating that the sayings were a monolithic body separate from the narrative.


It is inexplicable that such a monumental work by an early Christian father was “lost,” except that it had to be destroyed because it revealed the Savior as absolutely non-historical.


The Lord’s Prayer
As concerns the supposed originality of the “Lord’s Prayer,” which is presented as having come clear out of the blue from the very mouth of the Lord Himself, Wheless says it best:

Like the whole “Sermon on the Mount,” the Prayer is a composite of ancient sayings of the Scripture strung together to form it, as the marginal cross-references show throughout.

We might add that the “Scripture” referred to by Wheless is not only from the Old Testament but is part of the ancient mythos/ritual:

“...the Lord’s Prayer was a collection of sayings from the Talmud, many derived from earlier Egyptian prayers to Osiris.”

Walker also relates that the Lord’s Prayer was once the Lady’s Prayer:

The plea for daily bread incorporated into the Lord’s Prayer must have been a plea to the Goddess in earlier times, for she was always the giver of bread, the Grain Mother .

The Logos or Word
Jesus is called the “Word” or, “Logos,” which, although it appears mysterious and mystical to the uninitiated, is actually commonplace in Greek parlance, as it has many meanings, including “word,” “speech,” “rumor” and “reason.”


The logos is in actuality a primitive concept, reflecting merely the way in which God created the world, i.e., through speech. The Logos concept is not new with Christianity but is applied to a number of older deities in mythologies from the Mediterranean to China.


Pike relates:

The Word is also found in the Phoenician Creed. As in all those of Asia, a Word of God, written in starry characters, by the planetary Divinities, and communicated by the Demi-Gods, as a profound mystery, to the higher classes of the human race, to be communicated by them to mankind, created the world.

Of the Logos-Jesus concept in the Gospel of John, Wheless says:

As there can be no more positive and convincing proof that the Christ was and is a Pagan Myth - the old Greek “Logos” of Heraclitus and the Philosophers revamped by the Greek priest who wrote the first chapter of the “Gospel according to St. John” and worked up into the “Incarnate Son” of the old Hebrew God for Christian consumption as the most sacred Article of the Christian Faith and Theology...


Thus confessedly [in the Catholic Encyclopedia] is the Divine Revelation of the “Word made flesh” a Pagan-Jewish Myth, and the very Pagan Demiurge is the Christian Christ - “Very God” - and the “Second Person of the Blessed Trinity.”

Although much is made of Lucifer, the “fallen angel,” his name only appears translated as such in one verse in the King James bible, at Isaiah 14:12, where he is called “son of the morning.” “Lucifer” is also translated as “Day Star, son of Dawn.”


This passage describes the day star’s “fall from heaven” after he attempts to “ascend to heaven; above the stars of God” to set his throne. From this single passage, an enormous tale has taken shape, with all sorts of speculation as to who Lucifer “really” was, including everything from the leader of the devils to that of evil aliens.

Despite all the political intrigue, Lucifer simply means “Light Bearer,” and he was in earliest times a sun god, which is why he is called “Day Star, son of morning/dawn.”


The sun god Lucifer is “cast out of heaven” by the other angels, or stars, as night descends.


This god/angel Lucifer is preHebraic, found in Canaan, Egypt and Mesopotamia, and was not originally considered evil. In Dutch, a Lucifer is a match, a purely utilitarian object that brings light and fire. Like the many gods of other cultures, Lucifer was vilified by the Christians so they could raise their own god above him.


Ironically, since both are the day or morning star, Jesus and Lucifer are in fact one and the same.

The Lucifer myth can also be found in the Greek story of the “son of the sun,” Phaeton, who was cast out of heaven by his Father after committing the crime of hubris.


The story of Vulcan, the Roman solar god, is similar to the Lucifer myth, as he too is cast out of heaven by the gods as darkness descends.


The mysterious king of Salem, Melchizedek, or Adonizedek, as he is also called in the Book of Jasher, is mentioned in the OT as the priest of the Most High God (El Elyon) who blessed Abraham.


In the Epistle to the Hebrews, Jesus is named as a mere priest “after the order of Melchizedek,” a passage serving to establish the Order of Melchizedek as the ultimate authority, beyond Abraham and Jesus.


In fact, the Christian Gnostics considered Melchizedek a savior-god higher than Jesus:

“Melchizedek was the savior for angels, while Christ was only the savior for men.”

Like that of so many other biblical characters, the identity of Melchizedek can be found in the preYahwist cultures of the Levant.


As Walker states,

“Jerusalem was ‘the House of Peace,’ or of the god Salem, whose earlier city was ruled by Melchizedek (Genesis 14), the ‘King of Light’ called Melek or Molech in Phoenicia.”

Molech is the sun and fire god, originally from Persia and India, and worshipped by the Canaanites.


The Molech/Melek cult also flourished in Paul’s purported hometown of Tarsus, as Heracles-Melkart.


As stated, Solomon and other Israelites worshipped Moloch/Molech/Melek/Milcom/Melchom:

Moloch was a god of the Ammonites, also worshiped among the Israelites. Solomon built a temple to him, on the Mount of Olives, and human sacrifices were offered to him.

Sacrifice to Moloch/Molech was by burning, and when the “sons of Judah” thus incinerated their children (Jer. 7:31), drums were beaten and instruments were played to drown out the screams.

Though vilified by the Yahwists, as Walker says,

“For a while, Molech was identified with Yahweh... Levite priests eventually distinguished Yahweh from Molech and forbade the latter’s worship (Leviticus 18:21).”

The baptism of Molech or Melchom was likewise by fire, which is why Christ, as high priest of the Order of Melchizedek, was said to baptize by fire.


It is this baptism by fire, as well as immolation by fire, as in burnt offerings, that distinguishes the Order of Melchizedek; hence, when mention of the Order is made in the Bible, it serves as a reference to these rites, the practitioners of which are considered the “true” priesthood.


Indeed, offering to Molech is permitted to this day in the Talmud, although it is debated as to whether or not one may pass the child through fire.


The Nativity
The birth celebration or nativity of the great savior existed as a ritual long prior to the Christian era.


As Frazer says:

The ritual of the nativity, as it appears to have been celebrated in Syria and Egypt, was remarkable. The celebrants retired into certain inner shrines, from which at midnight they issued a loud cry, “The Virgin has brought forth! The light is waxing!”


The Egyptians even represented the newborn sun by the image of an infant which on his birthday, the winter solstice, they brought forth and exhibited to his worshippers.

Hazelrigg explains the meaning within the mythos of the nativity and the rest of the sacred king drama:

The Nativity, the Betrayal, the Crucifixion, and the Resurrection are but quarterly stages in the mystic journey, expressed as a geometrical ration in natural physics - ever the same whether applied to the four quarters of the day, the four lunar phases, the four cardinal points or seasons in the solar revolution...

The Sabbath
The Sabbath predates the Jewish religion and is found in the Middle East and India, where it signified the seventh-day rest of the Goddess Durga.


Ignorant of its origins, the various Christian sects have been squabbling for centuries as to when the Sabbath should be observed, as ordained by the Jewish god Yahweh.


The “purists” feel that Sabbath is to be observed on Saturday, rather than the “Pagan” day of Sunday adopted by the “corrupt” Catholic Church; however, Saturday is also a “Pagan” day, named for “Saturn.”


As Doane relates:

The planet Saturn very early became the chief deity of Semitic religion. Moses consecrated the number seven to him... “The Seventh day was sacred to Saturn throughout the east.”... “Saturn’s day was made sacred to God, and the planet is now called cochab shabbath, ‘The Sabbath Star.’ The sanctification of the Sabbath is clearly connected with the word Shabua or Sheba, i.e., seven.”

The Second Coming/Day of Judgment
Although billions of people over the centuries have been waiting endlessly for the Second Coming of Jesus, believing that it is a very unusual event, the “second coming” has been expected of numerous savior-gods, including Krishna, Buddha, Bacchus, Quetzalcoatl and others around the world.


The same can be said of the end of the world, the millennium and the Day of Judgment.


Of the Day of Judgment, Doane relates:

“Prof. Carpenter, referring to the Egyptian Bible - which is by far the most ancient of all holy books - says:

‘In the “Book of Dead,” there are used the very phrases we find in the New Testament, in connection with the day of judgment.’”

The “Second Coming,” in fact, is the return of the sun in a new precessional age.

The Seventy/Seventy-Two
The number of disciples is represented variously in the gospels, from 12 to 70 to 72.


This numerical trio can be explained by the mythos and not as history. To begin with, “72” was often rounded off to 70, so the two numbers are interchangeable. Tradition holds that there are 72 names of God, which is appropriate, since 72 is yet another sacred number, the reason why there are also 72 nations in the 10th chapter of Genesis.


Like Jesus, Confucius (6th century BCE) had 72 initiated disciples. Furthermore, the 72 are the same accomplices of Set who plotted the death of Osiris.

The 72 actually represent the decans or dodecani, divisions of the zodiacal circle into 5° each, also considered constellations. In addition, it takes 72 years for the precession of the equinoxes to move one degree. As noted, the story of Jacob’s Ladder with 72 ascending and descending angels is actually a reflection of the zodiac and the angles of the decans.


Furthermore, the magical pentagram or pentacle is made from the division of the decans.


Regarding the pentacle, the number 72 and the legendary 72 translators of the Hebrew bible into Greek, Walker says:

To draw a pentacle, one divides a circle into five arcs of seventy-two degrees each. Seventy-two is the prime magic number...


So magical was 72 that one of the most durable myths about the origin of the Bible called it the Book of the Seventy-Two (Septuagint), claiming that it had been translated from Hebrew to Greek in the third century B.C. by seventy-two scholars simultaneously, and that each version was precisely the same as all seventy-one others.


This silly story was an article of Christian faith throughout the Middle Ages.

In Gnostic texts, the chariot of Ezekiel is the wheel of the zodiac with the 72 decans, representing the “chariot of the Sun.”


Doresse relates the Gnostic interpretation:

“The chariot, we are told, has been taken for a model by the seventy-two gods who govern the seventy-two languages of the peoples.”

The doctrine of transubstantiation, found at 1 Corinthians 1012, represents the miraculous transformation of bread and wine into the body and blood of Christ.


However, this sort of magical ritual was practiced around the world in a variety of forms eons before the Christian era and is, therefore, in no way original to Christianity:

... the ancient Mexicans, even before the arrival of Christianity, were fully acquainted with the doctrine of transubstantiation and acted upon it in the solemn rites of their religion.


They believed that by consecrating bread their priests could turn it into the very body of their god, so that all who thereupon partook of the consecrated bread entered into a mystic communion with the deity by receiving a portion of his divine substance into themselves.


The doctrine of transubstantiation, or the magical conversion of bread into flesh, was also familiar with the Aryans of ancient India long before the spread and even the rise of Christianity.

This practice has been considered barbaric and savage by nonCatholic Christians and other religionists, not to mention ludicrous by non-religionists.


The preChristian ancients knew that the transubstantiation was allegorical, not actual:

“‘When we call corn Ceres and wine Bacchus,’ says Cicero, ‘we use a common figure of speech; but do you imagine that anybody is so insane as to believe that they thing he feeds upon is a god?’”

The Trinity
The trinity or triune deity is yet another aspect of the ubiquitous mythos, found in countless other cultures long prior to the Christian era.


Obviously, then, the concept did not originate with Jesus; in fact, it was not adopted into Christianity until the Council of Nicea in 325. Like so many aspects of Christianity, the trinity was originally found in the Egyptian religion.


As Churchward says:

Such mysteries as the Trinity, the Incarnation, and the Virgin Birth, the Transfiguration on the Mount, the Passion, Death, Burial, Resurrection and Ascension, Transubstantiation and Baptismal Regeneration, were all extant in the mysteries of Amenta with Horus or Iuem-Hotep as the Egyptian Jesus.

Jacolliot notes that the Trinity is also of Indian origin:

“The Trinity in Unity, rejected by Moses, became afterwards the foundation of Christian theology, which incontestably acquired it from India.”

Over the millennia, the trinity took different forms: all-female, all-male and mixed. The earliest trinities in many places were all-female.


As Walker relates:

From the earliest ages, the concept of the Great Goddess was a trinity and the model for all subsequent trinities, female, male or mixed.... Even though Brahmans evolved a male trinity of Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva to play these parts [of Creator, Preserver and Destroyer], Tantric scriptures insisted that the Triple Goddess had created these gods in the first place....


The Middle East had many trinities, most originally female. As time went on, one or two members of the triad turned male. The usual pattern was Father-Mother-Son, the Son figure envisioned as a Savior... Among Arabian Christians there was apparently a holy trinity of God, Mary, and Jesus, worshipped as an interchangeable replacement for the Egyptian trinity of Osiris, Isis, and Horus...

In the solar mythos, the trinity also represents the sun in three stages: Newborn (dawn), mature (fullgrown at 12 noon), and “old and dying, at the end of the day (going back to the Father).”

The trinity is even found in Peru, a fact that prompted the perturbed Rev. Father Acosta to remark:

It is strange that the devil after his manner has brought a Trinity into idolatry, for the three images of the sun called Apomti, Churunti, and Intiquaoqui, signify Father and Lord Sun, the Son Sun, and the Brother Sun.

In reality these infamous “devil” comments are reflective of sheer cultural and racial bigotry, not to mention the appalling ignorance and stupidity of those supposedly entrusted by the “omniscient and omnipotent Lord God" with the instruction of the entire human race.


Thus, we discover the most important tenets, doctrines and other elements of the gospel story and Christian religion are unoriginal and mythological.


Indeed, the onion of the “historical Jesus” has been peeled, and there remains no core to be found, only the preChristian mythos and ritual.
