    The following is an unpublished text which essentially is one of about 137 books generated from my genealogical collection entitled 'The Bible With Complextion'. The Jabali Manuscript is a 392 page source document covering 99 generations going back to ancient Egypt. I am sharing this here because as a writer/author I think it is the most appropriate area, but if not can someone please let me know. Peace.

    Notes on Ancient Egyptian Religion

    In funerary texts, the deceased is said to visit Abydos and Busiris, the Lower Egyptian cult centre of Osiris, and these journeys are often termed the 'Osirian Pilgrimages'. This involves partaking of visits to Busiris and Abydos on a SPIRITUAL plane. The same principal gave rise to a series of funerary texts in the Middle and New Kingdoms for knowing the ba-spirits of the ancient cities of Buto and Nekhen (Hieraconpolis) as well as Abydos and the city of Thoth Khemenu (Hermopolis). Other funerary texts seek to provide access to the Memphite necropolis Rosetjau (Modern Giza), to reserve for the deceased a seat in Iunu (Heliopolis) and to avoid slaughter in Hennesut (Heracleopolis). In all instances, the place names transfer important features of the religious landscape of Egypt to a symbolic level, and reveal the national prestige of those places without national pilgrimages to any of them.

    Geneology is interesting, for instance I found out that I was a descendant of the original Duke of Love, the Count of Basie, also the Duke of Ellington and the original Milk of Magnesia

    The pre-eminence of Kingship in the surviving record should illustrate clearly that all cult in Egypt was royal cult; it was part of a Cosmic pact in which the king offered up to Heaven the fruits of the earth in exchange for channeling down to earth the blessings of Heaven. Any Temple in Egypt is a monument to the Kingship that created it as much as to the deity for whom it was created. Such complexes are known to Egyptology as royal mortuary temples, implying that their main use was intended to follow the death of the king to whose cult they were dedicated. Archaeological evidence strongly suggests that each king embarked on the construction of a temple for his own cult at the outset of their reign, so that the temple would have been in operation during their reign, and that, far from coming into usage after their death, the temple saw its income diverted and its cult began to fall apart from the moment that he died and the new king sought to muster all possible resources for the benefit of his own cult temple. The term 'mortuary temple' can therefore be replaced with the designation 'temple for the royal cult'. In Egyptian texts these temples are called from the late Middle Kingdom onwards 'temples of millions of years'.

    The earliest known complexes for the cult of the king were rectangular enclosures of perishable materials, now vanished, marked out at Abydos near the border between desert and cultivation as spaces of unused ground amid the tombs of courtiers. From those tombs they may be dated to the first kings who ruled Egypt, whose burials lie not far distant to the West where the low desert sands nearest to the fields meet hillier Saharan terrain. Little is known of the tomb and cult complexes at Saqqara, but one of the two kings who returned to Abydos for burial, Khasekhemwy, left two great enclosures built of mud-brick instead of perishable materials. One of these was at Abydos, removed from the tomb itself to the more accessible limit of cultivation like the earlier structures; the other stood in an entirely different location, near the ancient town of Nekhen (Hieraconpolis) where Horus was worshipped in later times.

    The ba appears in the Old Kingdom as embodiment of the power of king and gods to make their presence manifest in the world, and is often cited in the plural as bau of a deity or of a place, the sum of its divine beings; bau of Nekhen and Buto thus represent the numinous protective power at the southern and northern ends of Egypt, and were shown respectively as jackal- and falcoln-headed trios, three for the plural and nine for totality. The ba expressed above all the ability to move, portrayed in two- and three-dimensional representation as a bird or human-headed bird, the head to identify the being as a human spirit, the body to illustrate the attribute of mobility, nothing else being free and mobile as a bird of flight.

    At the end of the eighth century BC the Kingdom of Napata, located in the modern Sudan, conquered Egypt and stimulated a revival of pre-Ramesside traditions, most notably under Shabaka, who had the creation text of Memphis copied from a rotting manuscript onto a slab of basalt called today the Shabaka Stone. In the early seventh century BC, Taharqa revived such compositions as the King as Priest of the Sun. Administrators of the estate of the 'God's Wife of Amun' and the mayors of Thebes constructed over their tombs chapels on the scale of royal cult complexes. These continued to be erected under the Saite kings who ruled Egypt after the Assyrian invasions and provided ample space for new and ofthen faithful editions of the so-called Book of the Dead, and a single papyrus for a man called Nespasef survives from this same period.

    The manuscript of Nespasef is of particular importance because it reveals a new edition of the Book of the Dead which is quite distinct from earlier versions. This version set a model sequence to which papyri of the next six centuries adhere to a remarkable extent. Curiously few manuscripts survive from this period and none survive from the period of persian occupation, but the fourth and third centuries brought a large-scale revival of funerari papyri; fourth century Memphite burials even had the text written on the linen mummy-wrappings themselves.

    The Third Section of the newer edition is of particular interest. With his new powers of life the deceased receives in this section final Transfiguration, including the ability to assume different shapes hapters 76-88) and to "know the powers" of each cardinal direction, west, east, north (Buto) and south (Nekhen) and of Iunu and Khemenu and to farm the fields of the underworld (chaprters 107-116).
