Heru/Horus The story of Heru, the son of Auset (Isis) and Ausar (Osiris), predates the birth of Jesus by at least 3,000 years. According to ancient Egyptian mythology, Heru was conceived by means of immaculate conception. He is only begotten son of the god Ausar.
Egyptologist Erik Hornung wrote, “There was an obvious analogy between the Horus child and the baby Jesus and the care they received from their sacred mothers; long before Christianity, Isis had borne the epithet ‘mother of the god.’”
Quetzalcoatl/ Feathered Serpent Quetzalcoatl is a Mesoamerican deity whose name comes from the Nahuatl language and means “feathered serpent.” Scholars believe the worship of the feathered serpent may have started as early as 2000 B.C. in the form of Kukulkan.
In his book ”The World’s Sixteen Crucified Saviors,” author Kersey Graves writes that the immaculate conception is a part of the history of Quetzalcoatl. The similarities between the story and the feathered serpent of Mesoamerica are such that one of the Mormon Church leaders, president John Taylor (November 1, 1808 – July 25, 1887) wrote: “The story of the life of the Mexican divinity, Quetzalcoatl, closely resembles that of the Savior; so closely, indeed, that we can come to no other conclusion than that Quetzalcoatl and Christ are the same being. But the history of the former has been handed down to us through an impure Lamanitish source, which has sadly disfigured and perverted the original incidents and teachings of the Savior’s life and ministry.”
Buddha According to Listverse.com, there are many similarities between Buddha and Jesus. Both went to temples at the age of twelve, where they are said to have astonished all with their wisdom. Both supposedly fasted in solitude for a long time – Buddha for 47 days and Jesus for 40 – and both wandered to a fig tree at the conclusion of their fasts.
Both were about the same age when they began their public ministry and were tempted by the “devil” at the beginning of their ministry.
Both strove to establish a kingdom of heaven on earth. According to Somadeva Suri (a south Indian Jain monk of the 10th century C.E.), a Buddhist ascetic’s eye once offended him, so he plucked it out and cast it away. Jesus said: “If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out, and throw it away.” (Matthew 5:29).
According to the Bhagavata Purana, an ancient holy Hindu text, Krishna was born without sexual union but sprang from the “mental transmission” of his father Vasudeva into the womb of his mother Devaki.
Christ and Krishna were both called God and the son of God. Both were sent from heaven to earth in the form of a man. Both were called Savior, and the second person of the Trinity.
Krishna’s adoptive human father was also a carpenter. A spirit or ghost was the actual father of both men. Krishna and Jesus were of royal descent. Both were visited at birth by wise men and shepherds, who were guided by a star. Angels in both cases issued a warning that the local dictator planned to kill the baby and had issued a decree for his assassination. The parents fled. Mary and Joseph stayed in Muturea; Krishna’s parents stayed in Mathura.
Both Christ and Krishna withdrew to the wilderness as adults, and fasted. Both were identified as “the seed of the woman bruising the serpent’s head.” Jesus was called “the lion of the tribe of Judah.” Krishna was called “the lion of the tribe of Saki.”
Both claimed: “I am the Resurrection.” Both were “without sin.” Both were god-men: being considered both human and divine. Both performed many miracles, including the healing of disease.
In his book The History of Persia, Sir John Malcolm wrote that Persian prophet Zoroaster was believed to be born of an immaculate conception by a ray from the Divine Reason. Zoroaster, whose faith was a type of monotheism, taught that a conflict between the opposing forces of light and darkness would last for 12,000 years, divided into eons of 3,000 years each. His birth marked the beginning of the final eon, which was to be presided over by Zoroaster himself. The purpose of Zoroaster’s coming was to guide man to choose the right so that the world may become perfect. He taught that there would be a final battle between good and evil; the good would be victorious and the Messiah (Saoshyant) would rule. His reign would be accompanied by the resurrection of the dead and the judgment of the world.
According some narratives, Zoroaster’s birth was foretold from the beginning of time.
