Raising of the dead:
Horus raised Osirus, his dead father, from the
Jesus raised Lazarus, his close friend, from the grave.
Location where the resurrection miracle occurred:
Anu, an Egyptian city where the rites of the death,
burial and resurrection of Horus were enacted annually. 1
Hebrews added their prefix for house ('beth") to "Anu"
to produce "Beth-Anu" or the "House of Anu." Since "u" and
"y" were interchangeable in antiquity, "Bethanu" became "Bethany,"
the location mentioned in John 11.
Linkage between the name of Osirus in Egyptian religion
and Lazarus in the Gospel of John:
Asar was an alternative name for Osirus, Horus' father. Horus raised
Asar from the dead. He
was referred to as "the Asar," as a sign of respect.
into Hebrew, Asr is "El-Asar." The Romans added the sufffix "us"
to indicate a male name, producing "Elasarus." Over time, the "E"
was dropped and "s" became "z," producing "Lazarus."
