By Dr. Kwame Nantambu:
Now, on the walls of the Temple of Dendera in ancient Kemet(Egypt), there are four scenes dated 1700 B.C. that depict the birth of the royal Pharaoh. In the B.C. era, the Kemites considered their Pharaohs divine, that is, Gods incarnate. These scenes depict the divine birth as is known today.
In the first scene, God Thoth, messenger of the Gods and the God of science, writing, knowledge, comes to the Divine Mother, wife of the Pharaoh, and announces to her the impending birth of the divine child, who is descendant from the God Amun-Ra in the personification of Heru (Horus). This represents the Annunciation event in Christianity.
In the second scene, God Kneph, personification of the Holy Spirit, holds the symbol of life to the mouth of the Queen/Mother. This scene shows that the Queen is conceiving by the power of the Holy Spirit.
God Kneph is the personification of breath, air and spirit. In this ancient Kemetic spiritual belief system, spirit was synonymous with breath. Hence, it need occasion no great surprise that in the Christian gospel, Mary conceives by the power of the Holy Spirit.
In the third scene, the Divine child is born. This is equivalent to the nativity of Jesus in Bethlehem.
In the fourth scene, all the Gods in the ancient Kemetic pantheon gather around this divine child to sing his praises and adore him - just as the angels gathered around the infant Jesus to sing his praises and to adore him.
In other words, 1,700 years before Jesus was born, there existed the Annunciation, Immaculate Conception, Birth and Adoration of the Divine child, that is, the complete, derived Christian nativity scene as described in the gospel, but already occurring and depicted in ancient Kemet (Egypt).
It is also very interesting to note that all the Sun Gods of ancient Kemet in the B.C. era, particularly Heru (Horus), had their birthday celebrated on 25th December.
By way of elucidation, 21st December marked the winter solstice and at that time, the sun was at its lowest ebb. According to Dr. Charles Finch, the ancient Afrikans/Kemites used to describe natural phenomena in very poetic terms. So, the winter solstice was often described as the "sun in its cave."
For three days, the sun remains in its cave. The first day when the sun begins to rise again is at midnight on 25th December; so, midnight 25th December can be said to be the birth of the sun in a cave. This is equivalent to the Christian derivative of the birth of Jesus, son of God, in a cave. In ancient Kemet, sun was synonymous with son. In other words, the worship of the Sun God under Afrikan spirituality in the B.C. era has now become the worship of the son of God under the Christian religion in the A.D. era.
At midnight on 25th December 3,000 years ago, when the sun comes up on the eastern horizon, the constellation Virgo is sitting on the horizon so that the sun can be said to be born in a cave of the virgin.
Also, Sirius, is the brightest star in the heaven at that time. Sirius is a very important ancient Kemetic star because it arose it such a way to announce the flooding of the Nile River. Indeed, it is universally accepted that it was the star Sirius that led the so-called three wise men to Jesus, to the sun/son.
In other words, if one looks at Sirius on the night of 25th December in the southerly latitude, it is directly overhead on the meridian; thus, when the sun is born in the cave, Sirius is right directly overhead.
In addition, adjacent to Sirius is the constellation of Ausar (Osiris), the hunter. Now, there are three stars in the belt of Osirian that point directly to Sirius as if they are following Sirius. Those three stars in the belt of Osirian are called the three kings in Christianity.
So, one sees that much of what is called Christian gospel has direct correlation with ancient Afrikan/Kemetic/Egyptian astronomical facts that are represented mythologically and allegorically.
The fact of the matter is that in orthodox Christianity, the birthday of Jesus was originally celebrated on 6th January. However, in the third and fourth centuries when Christianity began to expand all over the Mediterranean world, it ran up against centuries of sun worship whose birthday was celebrated on 25th December.
So, for political reasons and power control intent, the birthday of Jesus was changed from 6th January to 25th December at the Council of Nicea, May-August 325 A.D. This geopolitical power control-religious decision is the origin of the "Twelve Days of Christmas" carol.
The name “Yule” is the Babylonian word for “infant” or “little child” as Hislop describes on pages 93 and 94 of his book…. “That Christmas was originally a Pagan festival is beyond all doubt. The time of the year, and the ceremonies, with which it is still celebrated, prove its origin. In Egypt, the son of Isis, the Egyptian title for the queen of heaven, was born at this very time, ‘about the time of the winter solstice.’ The very name by which Christmas is popularly known among us — Yule-day — proves at once its pagan and Babylonian origin. ‘Yule’ is the Chaldee name for an ‘infant’ or ‘little child'; and as the 25th of December was called by our Pagan Anglo-Saxon ancestors, ‘Yule-day,’ or the ‘Child’s-day,’ and the night that preceded it, ‘Mother-night,’ long before they came in contact with Christianity, that sufficiently proves its real character. Far and wide, in the realms of Paganism, was this birthday observed.”
In this picture we have the Annunciation, the Conception, the Birth, and the Adoration, as described in the First and Second Chapters of Luke's Gospel
Egyptian Nativity Scene & The Constellation Virgo
The story continues that the coffin of Ausar (Osiris) was swept by the waves to the shoreline of a foreign land. A tree sprang up and grew around it, enclosing the body of Ausar in its trunk. The tree grew large, beautiful, and fragrant. News of this magnificent tree came to the king of this alien land, who ordered that the tree be cut down, and its trunk brought to him. He utilized the trunk as a pillar in his house without knowing the great secret it contained within.
This is reference to the Tree of Life, and with all that that implies. It is also a reference to the Tet (Djed) pillar of Ausar (Osiris).
In Christianity, this became the Christmas tree
