Let’s assume Gerner’s statement that Hoor
truly refers to Horus
of Egyptian folklore
. It is the belief among some scholars that the legend of Set
is actually the basis for the Christian Bible
. Set, for all intents and purposes, is the devil
, while Osiris is God; and more importantly Horus
is the son of Osiris and Isis and the link between life
. The lines beginning with “Thou-child!” and ending with “Here is the blood” bare a striking resemblance to a Christian prayer, one focusing on Jesus
. So what is Crowley
trying to impart through this mad
passage? Simply that he believes (or knows) in the Egyptian
notion that the story of Jesus is plagiarized.
…rad does not claim this as truth, but rather suggests it as a possibility.
