Editorial Review
[T]he drama opens in Revelation the same as in “the Book of the Dead,” with “the resurrection and the glory” of the coming Son. “Behold He cometh with the clouds, and every eye shall see Him.” It is the risen Lord of Resurrection who says: “I was dead, and behold I am alive evermore, and I have the keys of death and of hades” (Ch. i 18). This is Horus of the resurrection risen from Amenta in his triumph over death and hell or Sut and Akar. He proclaims himself to he the all-one, Har-Sum-taui-Neb-Uâ. Jesus, like Horus, is the “faithful witness” for the Father... —from “Egyptian Wisdom in the Revelation of John the Divine” It goes unappreciated by modern Egyptologists, but it is embraced by those who savor the concept of a “hidden history” of humanity, and those who approach all human knowledge from the perspective of the esoteric. Gerard Massey’s massive Ancient Egypt: The Light of the World—first published in 1907 and the crowning achievement of the self-taught scholar—redefines the roots of Christianity via Egypt, proposing that Egyptian mythology was the basis for Jewish and Christian beliefs. Here, Cosimo proudly presents Book 11 of Ancient Egypt, in which Massey demonstrates how Scripture was created from the remains of Egypto-gnostic traditions, with little knowledge of the ancient wisdom upon which it drew, through the specific example of the Biblical story of the Book of Revelation and John the Divine. Using Egyptian mythology, Massey “makes sense” of the apocalyptic visions of Revelation by showing how they are actually the work of Taht-Aan, a pre-Christian “John the Divine.” Peculiar and profound, this work will intrigue and delight readers of history, religion, and mythology. British author GERALD MASSEY (1828–1907) published works of poetry, spiritualism, Shakespearean criticism, and theology, but his best-known works are in the realm of Egyptology, including A Book of the Beginnings and The Natural Genesis.
