Ptolemy I of Egypt as a means to unify the Greeks and Egyptians in his realm. The deity was depicted as Greco-Roman (Ju-Zeus, Je-Zeus, Jesus) in appearance, but with Egyptian trappings, and combined iconography from a great many cults, signifying both abundance and resurrection. His cults was spread as a matter of deliberate policy by the Ptolemaic kings, who also built a splendid Serapeum in Alexandria. Serapis continued to increase in popularity during the Roman period, often replacing Asaru (Osiris) as the consort of Isis in non-Egyptian temples (Note: Serapis is aform of Asar[u]). Zeus, aka “Zeus Pateras,” takes his name from the Indian version, “Dyaus Pitar.” Dyaus Pitar, which in turn is derived from the Ta Meri (Egyptian) name “Iusa Ptah-Re,” or “The Father of the GODS”. Thus, the origin of the English transliteration word ‘Fath-Er (Father).’ In Kemet (Egyptian) mythology, Ptah, the Father, is the unseen Creative-force, and the Sun was viewed as Ptah’s visible proxy who brings everlasting life to the Earth; hence, the title “Son of God,” which is really the “Sun of God.” Thus,“Jesus is the Light of the World” that everyone sees. “Zeus” equals “Dyaus,” which became the Greco-Roman words ‘Deos,’ ‘Deus’ and ‘Dios’ – ‘God.’ “Zeus Pateras,” like Dyaus Pitar, means, “God the Father”. Dyaus Pitar becomes “Jupiter” in Roman mythology. According to Professor Hilton Hotema, the very name “Christ” comes from the Vedic word ‘Kris,’ as in ‘Krishna,’ (the Black One) which is also another name for the Sun (Consciousness). According to Gerald Massey in his phenomenal book “GERALD MASSEY’S LECTURES,” he states that Christ and Krishna is derived from the Ta Merrian (Kemetian / Egyptian) word KRST, meaning ‘Burial,’ the mummified body of Asar (Osiris), symbolized as the “Soul embedded (buried) within the Pineal Gland (flesh). ‘Lazarus,’ the mummy raised from the dead by Jesus, the Christian copyists did not change his name much, “El-Azar-us” (Azar-EL, “the AngEL of Death” or Asar-Re, “Lord of the Underworld”) being the Ta Merrian (Kemetian / Egyptian) mummy raised from the dead by Heru (Horus) at least a 1,000 years before the Judeo-Christianity version. This story is allegory for the Sun reviving its old, dying self, or father, as in “El-Asaru (Osiris).” Moreover, Christ comes from the Greek word ‘Christos’, which means “The Anointed One”. Again, the word ‘Krishna’ in Greek is the same as ‘Christos’. A colloquial Bengali rendering of Krishna is ‘Kristo’, which is the same as the Spanish for Christ — ‘Cristo’. Furthermore, since Heru (Horus) was called ‘Iusa / Iao / Iesu’ (later the Tamil word Issa, and Arabic / Quranic word Isa), the ‘KRST,’ (Iusa Karast) and Krishna / Christna was called ‘Jezeus.’ Thus, we get the Indus-Kushite name “Jezeus Christna,” which later becomes the New Testament Biblical name “Jesus Christ.” Hotema states that the name “Iesous Christos” (Jesus Christ) was not formally adopted in its present form until after the first Council of Nicea, i.e., in 325 A.D. Interestingly, in Bengali, Krishna is reputedly “Christos,” which is the same as the Greek for “Christ” and which the soldiers of Alexander the Great called Krishna and when a Tamil (Pre-Dravidian) person calls on Krishna, he often says, ‘Krsta.’ ‘Krsta’ is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘attraction.’ So when we address God as KRST, Christ, or Krishna we indicate the same all-attractive Supreme Personality of Godhead. When Jesus said, “Our Father who art in heaven hallowed be Thy name”, the name of God was Krsta or Krishna. Prabhupada further says: ‘Christ’ is another way of saying ‘Krsta’ and ‘Krsta’ is another way of pronouncing ‘Krishna,’ the name of God…the general name of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, whose specific name is ‘Krishna.’ Therefore whether you call God ‘Christ’, ‘Krsta’, or ‘Krishna’, ultimately you are addressing the same Supreme Personality of Godhead…(read “THE ORIGINS OF CHRISTIANITY AND THE QUEST FOR THE HISTORICAL JESUS CHRIST” by Acharya S and “JESUS NEVER EXISTED” by Kenneth Humphreys).
According to author and theologian Tom Harpur: “states, “Gerald Massey discovered nearly two hundred instances of immediate correspondence between the mythical Egyptian material and the allegedly historical Christian writings about Jesus. Horus (Heru) indeed was the archetypal Pagan Christ (Note: Gerald Massey had access to the basement of the British Museum where 80% more items, pieces and etc…are located at…only 20% is above ground in the museum portion).”
