Christ in Egypt: The Horus-Jesus Connection

Archaeologist endorses ‘Christ in Egypt’

christ in egypt horus-jesus connectionI just got a wonderful endorsement for my book Christ in Egypt from a terrific and respected professor of archaeology, Dr. Ken Feder. Feder has written for Skeptic magazine as well as Skeptical Inquirer. Because of his book Frauds, Myths, and Mysteries: Science and Pseudoscience In Archaeology – which has been widely used as a textbook – Ken often appears as the voice of reason and science on History Channel and National Geo specials and documentaries about archaeological discoveries and hoaxes.

Feder read my book Christ in Egypt and penned the following blurb:

“The research conducted by D.M. Murdock concerning the myth of Jesus Christ is certainly both valuable and worthy of consideration.”

“My name is Ken Feder. I am an archaeologist, and I play one on TV, as a talking head in various documentaries on the National Geographic Channel, the Discovery Channel, the History Channel, ScFi, BBC Horizon, and, as it turns out, even the Weather Channel. I have written several books on archaeology, including Frauds, Myths, and Mysteries: Science and Pseudoscience In Archaeology (about to go into its 7th edition). Frauds is revered by some and hated by others, which is an indication I must have done something right in that work.

“…having conducted research and written extensively over the course of the last thirty years, I think I have developed a good eye for recognizing valuable research that is worthy of serious consideration when I see it. And the research conducted by D.M. Murdock concerning the myth of Jesus Christ is certainly both valuable and worthy of consideration.

“Everyone who reads Murdock’s Christ in Egypt should understand that the sources she cites are anything but marginal or questionable. In fact, her sources are, at least as far as I can tell, entirely within the Egyptology mainstream and many are, in fact, revered, and deservedly so, within the community of Egyptologists. The fact that these sources are mainstream, highly respected, or even seminal does not, of course, make them right about the origins of the Christ story. However, it does make them, and Murdock’s thesis in which she incorporates their work, impossible to dismiss out of hand. Read her book. Criticize it if you believe it deserves criticism. But to dismiss it or get apoplectic about her thesis simply because it shocks you is plainly foolish.”

  1. Congratulations! Ms. Murdock does her part to ensure that the Christ Myth theory acquires affirmative comment if not enthusiastic reception from credentialed academia.

  2. Ken Feder is a real bright archeologist and not one to take history lightly. His book Frauds, Myths and Mysteries is excellent.

  3. Very nice
    Your work stands on its own.
    That being said, very nice and quite well deserved. I’m so happy to see that you are supported by a person of this stature. Cheers to Ken Feder and Cheers to you Acharya

  4. This endorsement from Professor of Archaeology, Ken Feder, really is a big deal. Congratulations Acharya.

    Now, when will you be on Nat Geo, Discovery and the History Channels? It’s your time, dear. Those channels need to discuss your work in astrotheology and the mythicist position.
