5 Christlike Figures Who Pre-Dated Jesus


Heru/Horus The story of Heru, the son of Auset (Isis) and Ausar (Osiris), predates the birth of Jesus by at least 3,000 years. According to ancient Egyptian mythology, Heru was conceived by means of immaculate conception. He is only begotten son of the god Ausar.

Egyptologist Erik Hornung wrote, “There was an obvious analogy between the Horus child and the baby Jesus and the care they received from their sacred mothers; long before Christianity, Isis had borne the epithet ‘mother of the god.'” QuetzalcoatlQuetzalcoatl/ Feathered Serpent Quetzalcoatl is a Mesoamerican deity whose name comes from the Nahuatl language and means “feathered serpent.” Scholars believe the worship of the feathered serpent may have started as early as 2000 B.C. in the form of Kukulkan.

In his book  “The World’s Sixteen Crucified Saviors,”   author Kersey Graves writes that the immaculate conception is a part of the history of Quetzalcoatl.  The similarities between the story and the feathered serpent of Mesoamerica are such that one of the Mormon Church leaders, president John Taylor (November 1, 1808 – July 25, 1887) wrote: “The story of the life of the Mexican divinity, Quetzalcoatl, closely resembles that of the Savior; so closely, indeed, that we can come to no other conclusion than that Quetzalcoatl and Christ are the same being. But the history of the former has been handed down to us through an impure Lamanitish source, which has sadly disfigured and perverted the original incidents and teachings of the Savior’s life and ministry.”
