If you have read or are familiar with Greek Mythology, you know many Biblical stories are parallel.  Egypt existed thousands of years before Rome and Greece, but Greece is credited as “The cradle of Western civilization.” The Bible was a major evolvement from Ancient Egypt. So, why are there so many similarities to Greek mythology?  Both Greeks and Romans traveled to Egypt to study at the Library of Alexandria. Once the scholars received the knowledge they wanted, the Library was burned to the ground. In Nazi Germany from 1933-39, Hitler burned books written by Jewish, pacifist, religious, classical liberal, anarchist, socialist, and communist authors. It goes back to the old saying, “Those who have the biggest guns, write the history books.” It is up to the reader to “revise-your-vision.”

BIBLICAL MODEL RESOLVES CONTRADICTIONS OF GREEK MYTHOLOGY

George G M James’ Stolen Legacy, outlines the term “Greek philosophy” as an incongruity. The Biblical model resolves the contradictions of Greek Mythology. Why are both intertwined? The New Testament was written in Greek, and the Old Testament in Hebrew. The language with which the New Testament was written should throw up a red flag.  Greek “mythology” contains stories corresponding to the first 11 chapters of the Bible. In Greek Mythology. Eden ended because of the first woman's disobedience.  Greek mythology contains characters resembling Cain and the sons of Lamech in Genesis 4; plus, stories of Noah and the “Great Flood.”  Traditions play out with mass migrations throughout the eastern Mediterranean after the “Great Flood.”

The Roman Calpurnius Piso Family were the creators of to the New Testament, Church, and Christianity. The Roman Church wrote both the Bible and Koran.  Roman Greece is the period of Greek history affecting its subsequent constituent Roman provinces that followed the Roman victory over the Corinthians, at the Battle of Corinth (146 BC), until the adoption of the city of Byzantium by the Emperor Constantine the Great as the capital of the Roman Empire (as Nova Roma, later Constantinople) in AD 330.

The Greek “Fall Story” is like the Biblical Adam and Eve. Both Greek tradition and the Bible mention the fall of the first human couple from paradise. The Greeks believed men originally lived "like the gods": free from disease, sorrow and work. The first woman was made and together with her husband, entrusted with a jar that was not to be opened.  The woman's curiosity finally overcame her, and she decided to peek inside. As Eve's eating of the forbidden fruit (Genesis 3) resulted in the expulsion of mankind from paradise and the entrance of death to the world, the Greek woman's peek ended the "Golden Age" and allowed the world's evils to escape from the jar.

THE FLOOD

The flood of Greek tradition is like the Great Flood event in the Bible. As one account states; "All men were destroyed except for a few who fled to the high mountains of the neighborhood. It was then the mountains of Thessaly parted and the world outside the Isthmus and the Peloponnesus led to the destruction of all plant life and elsewhere. Ventures exist here as to whether the lack of rainfall in the regions of upper Egypt may have allowed that region to escape.

Situation One: Noah's Ark (Genesis: Chapters 6-9) was 300 Cubits long (500 feet) and 30 Cubits high.  A Cubit is about 20 inches long. Rain covered the Earth at 20 cubits (23 feet or 7 Meters) high.  Mt. Everest is 29,029 feet high. If you believe the mythological text, the flood was short by 26,000 feet of water.  Eight (8) people cared for 36,000 species or 72,000 animals for one year.  Where did the food come from to feed the animals, and how did eight people manage to feed 72,000 animals for a year? How could the Ark have enough room to house the 72,000 animals? That must have been one big “stinky outhouse.”  Each person had to feed 9,000 animals a day unless the animals were fed by manna from heaven. How did the freshwater and saltwater fish/animals survive with freshwater falling from the sky to cover the Earth?

Situation Two: The Bible states the Children of Israel fled Egypt. It took them 40 years to complete their journey to the Promise Land (Exodus: Chapters 1-12).  They wandered around for 40 years in the wilderness? The distance from Mt. Sinai (also called Mt. Horeb) to the edge of the Promised Land was an 11-day journey.  Yet, it took the Children of Israel 40 years of wandering around in the wilderness before they finally arrived at the borders of Canaan. The Distance between Egypt and Canaan (Israel) is 381 miles or 631 km.  On average, the Children of Israel had to walk 43 meters a day or .03 of a mile per day.  The average person walks 3.75 miles a day so 3/10 of a mile per day does not have them moving very far every day.

Think hard!  Realization should kick in knowing we have been given myth from the onset. The Sphinx are older than the Biblical Timeline—go figure!  Oceania currently has groups of people who have been in existence for 60,000+ years, but we are told Adam and Eve were the first people on Earth.  Adam tells his son Cain to go to the “Land of Nod” in Genesis to find a wife (Genesis 4:  16-17 “Cain knew his wife,” and it was here that his son, Enoch, was born)! Where was the Land of Nod if the first two people on Earth were born 5 - 6,000 years ago?

GENESIS 1 – 11 DESCRIBES SIMILARITIES TO BIBLICAL SCRIPTURE WITH EXACT EVENTS

The central figure of ancient Egyptian Religion was Osiris who was the African (main god) -- Nilotic god.  Nilotic people are indigenous to the Nile Valley born in Upper Egypt.  Nilo-Saharan languages are spoken in South Sudan, Uganda, Kenya, and northern Tanzania.  The chief fundamentals of his belief system were divinity, death, resurrection, and absolute control of destinies, bodies and souls of men. Egyptian texts enable tracing the history Osiris from the Ancients to the Roman Period with all-inclusiveness.

Constantine (One) invaded Egypt; legalized Christianity, and formulated the Bible using hieroglyphic pyramid text. European Pharaohs (Ptolemy) Occupied Egypt after the invasion in 332 BCE which replaced the Egyptian Pharaohs. The Roman Empire dethroned the Pharaohs and created God in their own image.  Constantine (One), declared himself Pharaoh of Egypt and created a powerful European dynasty that ruled an area stretching from southern Syria to Cyrene and south to Nubia. Alexandria became the capital city and a major center of Greek culture and trade.

To gain recognition by the indigenous Egyptian populace, the Ptolemy named themselves successors to the Pharaohs. The later Ptolemy’s took on Egyptian traditions, portrayed themselves on public monuments in Egyptian style and dress, and participated in Egyptian religious life.  Ptolemy I Soter I (the Savior), also known as Ptolemy c. 367 BC – 283 BC was a Macedonian general under Alexander the Great who became ruler of Egypt (323–283 BC) and founder of both the Ptolemaic Kingdom and the Ptolemaic Dynasty. He DEMANDED the title “pharaoh.”

The ancient Egyptians developed a complex religious system called the Mysteries.  The religion regarded the human body as a prison house of the soul, which could be liberated from its bodily impediments, through the disciples of the Arts and Sciences, and advanced form the level of a mortal to that of a God. This was the notion of greatest good, to which all men must aspire, and it also became the basis of all ethical concepts.

The Egyptians developed secret systems of writing and teaching, and prohibited their Pledges from writing what they had learned. After nearly 5,000 years of prohibition against the Greeks, they were permitted to enter Egypt for their education after the Persian and Alexander the Great’s invasions. From the sixth century B.C. to the death of Aristotle (322 B.C.), the Greeks made the best of their chance to learn all they could about Egyptian culture. Students received instructions directly from the Egyptian Priests, but after the invasion by Alexander the Great, the Royal temples and libraries were plundered and pillaged, and Aristotle’s school converted the library at Alexandria into a research center. The production of a remarkably large number of books credited to Aristotle’s creation was a physical impossibility for one man to write within a lifetime.

Religion is an institution established by man for various reasons. Organized, structured religions require its parishioners to follow the Catholic, Baptist, or Methodist Doctrines. Worshipers have strict dogmas regarding music, dress, jewelry, and eating habits. You confess your sins to a clergy member, attend elaborate mega churches to worship, and told what to pray and when to pray.  

Spirituality is born in a person and develops in the person coming from religion or may have started by a revelation. Spirituality extends to all facets of a person’s life. Spirituality is chosen while religion is often forced. Being religious can mean you are spiritual, or it can mean your religion does now allow you to attend church on Sunday, eat meat, or for women to cover their heads.

True spirituality is something that is found deep within oneself. It is your way of loving, accepting and relating to the world and people around you. It cannot be found in a church or by believing in confession your sins to a man behind a confessional booth holding a rosary, or supporting clergy as they fly around the country in private jets financed by parishioners.   

The Egyptian Book of the Dead, parts of which date to 7,000 years ago (before the Bible), the God Sun Ra is called, "the lord of heaven, the lord of earth, the king of righteousness, the lord of eternity, the prince of everlasting, ruler of gods all, god of life, maker of eternity, creator of heaven." The same epithets were later used to describe the Christian Jesus. Several these gods were "sons of Ra." "In Egyptian scriptures, the 12 sons of Ra (the twelve sons of Jacob, and the twelve tribes of Israel) were called the 'twelve saviors of the treasure of light.”
