CHRISTIANITY BEFORE CHRISTIANITY By Andre Austin The very thing which is now called the Christian religion existed among the ancients also…at which the true religion which was already in existence began to be called Christian-St Augustine, Retractiones The Catholics (Universal) named it ancient name after the Egyptian Ra, nicknamed the Cat. Many of the early Christians said similar things: Eusebius: “The religion published by JC to all nations is neither new or strange”. Eusebius pointed to the Essenes in Egypt called Therapeutae (healers) in Egypt. Emperor Hadrian writing a letter in 134AD to his brother in law, Servianus, called them followers of Serapis (Osiris). Serapis was a god of healing. The Therapeutae devoted themselves to reading the holy scriptures by interpreting its truths enshrined in allegories. Pythagoras was admired by the Egyptian priests and he copied their symbolism and occult teachings incorporating their doctrines, enigmas and allegories. Pythagoras popularity spilled over into a cameo appearance with the miracle of the net of 153 fish in the gospel of John chapter 21. Even the 2nd century historian Justin Martyr linked Christianity as nothing different than Bacchus, etal (Osiris) in his writings. You just can’t have more than 100 similarities between Osiris/Horus and Jesus and dismiss it. It’s a case of Christianity before Christianity by the ancient Egyptians.
