> Hi Keith,
> I shall give you a name of an author who also looks at what you do
below in regards to the ongoing stream of the Egyptian Mysteries. If
one goes back in time one will always find, or at least I have, a
similar story being told. I am of the opinion that it was for their
time and the time to come. The difference being that the Christ did
come at the Jordan into a physical body. The others were enacted out
of oracles and understandings of the initiates of the time. The big
difference being He did come down into earthly existence.
I don't think the Pharaonic/Egyptian initiate theory necessarily gets
in the way of the divinity of Christ, but it may do so if you
interprete or utilise it as an opportunity for a materialistic
historical rationalisation of Jesus's life. Either is possible, I think.
It does have a logic that Jesus would have been an Initiate into the
Mysteries. Also, beyond direct observation via spiritual sight or
documented information, there is no way of knowing what happened at
the time spiritually, as far as I know.
> I will see if I can find the name of the other author I am
referring to. He has made many mistakes however in his interpretation
of the story due to his thinking that because it was noted or there
were noted personalities of a simliar nature that this negates what
Christianity posits. It is my understanding this colors their thinking
on the subject and fact that the Christ, a God, did come down into
Earthly existence and fully incarnate into a man.
I'd be very interested in hearing about him. It seems to me that the
approach to this depends on the person, their politics, etc.
