    Horus of Egypt

    The stories of Jesus and Horus are very similar. Horus also contributed to the naming of Jesus Christ. Horus and his father Osiris are frequently interchangeable in the myth ("I and my Father are one"). The legends of Horus go back thousands of years. He has with Jesus the following common features:

    • Horus was born of the virgin Isis-Meri (Mary) on December 25 in a cave. His birth was announced by a star in the East, and expected by three wise men.

    • He taught children in the Temple and was baptized at the age of thirty.

In addition, virtually all elements of the Catholic ritual, the mite in Ostia, and holy water at the altar to doxology, are directly borrowed from ancient mystery religions called "heathen ".
