The World’s Sixteen Crucified Saviors – Wikipedia
And, besides, we learn, from 2 Kings xiii. This and many other similarities add up to make their own crucifiee about the nature of shared myth. As the whole affair seems to have been based on dreams, and was carried on through dreams, and has no better foundation than dreams, why should we consider it entitled to any better credit than similar stories found in works on heathen mythology? We next draw on the history of Greece.
Today, folklorists have discovered a set of world-wide themes relating a story of a culture-hero who has a miraculous birth and tragic death. Graves, often citing Anacalypsis and other works by Godfrey Higgins — as his source, asserts in the book that many messiah-like “saviors” were crucified on a cross or tree before ascending into heaven.
Graves held the belief 1 religion corrupted truth, and he evolved into a writer claiming religious belief false. The father of each was a carpenter. Hence, such prophetic utterances as “Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness” Isa.
And in most cases that prophecy was believed to have been fulfilled by the birth of a being, who, as he approached the goal of moral and intellectual manhood exhibited such remarkable proof of superiority of mind as to be readily accepted as the promised Messiah.
Here, drawn together by various motives and influences, the devotee of India the devout disciple of Buddhismthe ever-prayerful worshipper of “Mithra, the Mediator,” the representatives of the crucified Quexalcoate of Mexico, the self-denying Essene, the superstitious Egyptian, the godly Chaldean, the imitative Judean founders of Christiaiuty, and the disciples of other sin-atoning Gods, met and interchanged ideas, discussed their various dogmas, remolded their doctrines, and recast and rehabilitated their systems of religious faith by borrowing from each other, and from other systems there represented.
It is further related in the case of Chrishna, that as he and his parents approached the River Jumna in their flight, the waters “parted hither and thither,” so that they passed over “dry shod,” like Moses and the Israehtes in crossing the Red Sea. He was an advocate of Abolitionism and was also interested in language reform. In the first place, the Great Supreme God was believed to be too far off and too aristocratic to be on familiar terms with his subjects, or at all times accessible to their prayers.
And hence we find it related in the history of several of the God-begotten Saviors saviora antiquity, that cucified soon as they were born into the world they were visited by “wise men from a distance” or Magi, as they were called by the Persians and Brahmins. OF course such an extraordinary circumstance as the birth of a God into the world must be marked with unusual incidents and great eclat.
IT is claimed by the disciples of Jesus Christ, that he was of supernatural and divine origin; that he had a human being for a mother, and a God for his father; that, although he was woman- conceived, he was Deity-begotten, and molded in the human form, but comprehending in essence a full measure of the infinite Godhead; thus making him half human and half divine in his sublunary origin. And then we find a much stronger and more conclusive case in the 116 Testament, where Matthew represents a star as breaking loose from its orbit, and traveling some millions of miles, crufified order to stand over the young child Jesus, as he lay amongst the oxen and asses in a stable.
A comparative list of some pre-existing types to Christianity shows further how these types were brought on in the canonical Gospels and the Book of Revelation: Wittoba of the Bilingonese. Christ’s lineal descent, it will be remembered, is professedly traced though in a very zig-zag, disjointed manner from the royal house of David.
The others are the mere ebullitions of pent-up feeUngs hopefully prayerful in their anticipation of better times, but very indefinite cruvified to the period and the agencies or means in which, crucifked by which, the desired reformation was to be brought about. Perhaps not so much in the Joseph Campbell sense of archetypes, as much as by oral transmission from one society to another.
Their natures became coraipt, and this corruption infested their whole posterity. In corroboration of this statement we might cite many cases, if our space would permit, from the religious records of 1, Egypt, Persia, Greece, Rome, Mexico, Tibet, etc. In the case of Chrishna of India, in particular, the similitude is very striking in nearly every feature of the whole story. And if this work shall achieve anything towards arresting this great evil, the author will feel that he is crucifued compensated for the years of toil and mental labor spent in its preparation.
The World’s Sixteen Crucified Saviors
All were crucified gods, and all met their fates hundreds of years before Jesus appeared on the scene. Wonderfully accommodating savilrs indeed!
The book is often used as a source by Christ myth theory proponents, such as Dorothy M.
While I agree with Mr. Learning which, he flew through the air to the place, and when he beheld the new-born Savior he declared him to be the great avatar Savior or prophetand that he was destined to establish a new religion” — the New Covenant Religion. We shall, however, leave the theologians of the various religious schools to adjust and settle this difficulty among themselves.
It is now considered less shocking that incidents in religious narrative could be drawn from the global bank of folklore motifs. The plea is, that those systems were mere types, or ante-types, of the Christian religion.
It savior probable they got it from Dame Rumor, with her thousand tongues. Barbara Delcambre rated it did not like it Dec 22, Mar 10, Scott rated it did not like it Shelves: The idea of a snake or serpent inundating the earth from its mouth, as taught in both stories is so novel, and so far removed from the sphere of natural causes and possible events, that we are compelled to the conclusion that one is borrowed from the other, or both from a common original.
But this plea is of itself a drucified subterfuge of heathenism, and is moreover devoid of evidence.
