Natalie-Marie Hart – Ahmed Osman – Christianity: An Ancient Egyptian Religion

SHARE

In Christianity: An Ancient Egyptian Religion Author Ahmed Osman contends that the roots of Christian belief spring not from Judaea but from Egypt. Comparing the Old Testament with ancient Egyptian records, he shows that major characters of the Hebrew scriptures and major tenets of Christianity–the One God and the Trinity–are Egyptian in origin.

Contends that the roots of Christian belief come not from Judaea but from Egypt

• Shows that the Romans fabricated their own version of Christianity and burned the Alexandrian library as a way of maintaining political power

• Builds on the arguments of the author’s previous books The Hebrew Pharaohs of Egypt, Moses and Akhenaten, and Jesus in the House of the Pharaohs

Christianity: An Ancient Egyptian Religion

Author Ahmed Osman contends that the roots of Christian belief spring not from Judaea but from Egypt. He compares the chronology of the Old Testament and its factual content with ancient records from Egypt show that the major characters of the Hebrew scriptures–including Solomon, David, Moses, and Joshua–are based on historical figures from Egypt. He further suggests that not only were these personalities and the stories associated with them cultivated on the banks of the Nile, but the major tenets of Christian belief–the One God, the Trinity, the hierarchy of heaven, life after death, and the virgin birth–are all Egyptian in origin. He likewise provides a convincing argument that Jesus himself came out of Egypt.

With the help of modern archaeological findings, Osman shows that Christianity survived as an Egyptian mystery cult until the fourth century A.D., when the Romans embarked on a mission of suppression and persecution. In A.D. 391 the Roman-appointed Bishop Theophilus led a mob into the Serapeum quarter of Alexandria and burned the Alexandrian library, destroying all records of the true Egyptian roots of Christianity. The Romans’ version of Christianity, manufactured to maintain political power, claimed that Christianity originated in Judaea. In Christianity: A Ancient Egyptian Religion Osman restores Egypt to its rightful place in the history of Christianity.
