Isis, Osiris, Horus and Set

In 2500 BC, 550 years before the first scraps of what we know as Genesis, Exodus and Numbers began to be written down by a writer we know as "J" in the court of David, Egyptian mythology had a divine Savior god named Horus. Horus was the child of the goddess Isis. Isis's husband, the god Osiris, was murdered by Isis's brother Set because he was jealous. Isis's husband, Osiris, was dismembered and thrown into the Nile. The myth says she recovered all of his body except his penis which was eaten by a catfish. Isis used her magical powers to construct a gold phallus to conceive her son Horus, the Savior god. In another version of the story, Isis was impregnated by divine fire. Once she knew she was pregnant, she fled to the marshlands to hide from her brother Set whom she knew wanted to murder her son.

Seems like more than a coincidence that 55o to 1000 years later verses like Isaiah 7:14 where it says "The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel." It's not hard to see the striking similarities between the Egyptian and Christian stories.

I present this as one more of many examples that the obscurely authored compilation which has become known as the Old Testament contains ideas that were well known in the civilizations surrounding and preceding the Israel of its author "J."

In Christianity you have Jesus, born of a virgin. Mary impregnated by the Holy Spirit. Satan jealous of God. Satan desirous of snuffing out the life of infant Jesus. Very similar indeed.

I can't help notice the similarities of the narrative of "J" when writing Genesis. Adam and Eve. Able and Cain. Cain Jealous of Able and killing him. Cain banished.
