1 Peter 3:19-22*(New International Version) 19*After being made alive, he went and made proclamation to the imprisoned spirits—*20*to those who were disobedient long ago when God waited patiently in the days of Noah while the ark was being built. In it only a few people, eight in all, were saved through water,*21*and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also—not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a clear conscience toward God.*It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ,*22*who has gone into heaven and is at God’s right hand—with angels, authorities and powers in submission to him. If we look at Noah as the Egyptian deity Nun giving birth to another 8 deities we can see the transferring of mythology from one culture to another. Nun was the black dirt or mud from the Nile river bring life and saving souls from drought and starvation. The Nile played a role in this belief by symbolizing life and afterlife. All tombs and burial places of the Ancient Egyptians, including pyramids, are located on the West Bank of the Nile River. Many historians believe this is because the Egyptians knew that the*Sun rose in the East, supposedly symbolizing birth, and set in the West, symbolizing death. Because of this, all Ancient Egyptians are buried on the West Bank of the Nile, and the West Bank of the Nile became a symbol of the connection of life on earth and the afterlife. On a much larger scale, the ancient Egyptians were constantly invoking sacred time. As one sees from ritual funerary papyri, as well as in the wonderfully colorful friezes of sacred festivals, Egyptians used the three critical turning points of the year: The flooding of the land, The retreat of the Nile, and The time of drought These 3 times were opportunities to bring the eternal, changing patterns of durative and the Spiritual realizations behind them, archetypal Egypt into punctual, everyday existence of Egypt. Their agricultural, festival, and personal lives centered around no less than three calendars. After the birth of Isis and Osiris,*historic time in Egypt was also a part of the gods' time. From 3000 B.C. onward: Every June 21 the goddess Isis shone her brilliant face upon the thirsty land of Egypt, blessing it in her form as the*rising star Sothis/Sirius. Every June 21 the god Osiris rose up from his underworld depths, appearing as the*swollen river Nile, and flooded the land with his life-giving waters. Every June 21, then, Isis and Osiris blessed the people of Egypt and gifted them with their life-sustaining powers. Their literal salvation from drought and death had come in the flooding of the Nile. The star rose, the river overflowed its banks, and*the fields were made fertile. The Jews tampered with the Bible and took Noah story from Genesis chapter 1 to Chapter 10. But we still see Noah’s unnamed family in genesis Chap 1 as the 4 elements and their opposites (4 wives) to make up eight. We Have: 1.Noah (Nun) as water 2.Ham is black earth soil dirt of the Nile flood 3.Shem Air (spirit) is named after hermopolis where 8 deities emerged from nile flood. 4.Japheth (Ptah) discover of fire/sun Another clue that gave away the Flood story as the Nile flood was saying the flood was 15 cubits high genesis 7:20. Herodotus and Plutarch wrote that 15 cubits of Nile flood was the perfect height to avoid famine (death) to save Egyptian life.
