"Bis! Bis!"
One term that needs to be added here is: 'Hieros Gamos': the 'Holy Marriage' (between the 'gods'). A term that's used in many 'esoteric' organisations.

Actually Jesus of Nazareth was born on September 11th in a town called Bethlehem . A far as Him being The Actual Son of God incarnate . ....I Honestly Believe He Came here to earth ,walked among mortal man ,was Crucified and indeed resurected from the dead after taking away satans crown of authority and breaking the power of Sin upon mankind forevermore !!! Archeaological evidence is to Great to ignore or contest!! As far as mans worship of Astoreth , Isis ,urma, Venus ,jupiter, and Diana or any female deity of old,its evident that mans desires proved that worship of the Goddess's were more in order than worship of Jehovah the Creator or Giving of adoration to The True And Living God !! Man has always been rebellious in his choice of gods!!! The natural Sin nature testifies to that!! Man shoul seek the Obvious choice to spiritual freedom !! As i recall from history,there is No grave or seplecure, or tombstone for this teacher named " Jesus of Nazareth " !!!

Jesus of Nazereth was in all probability a real person, however there are many things in the church teachings that simply do not add up. Having been brought up in the Christian faith, I started to have my doubts when reading the bible. I have since been trying to trace the origins of the legend of Jesus. He was only one of a long line of people said to have been born of a virgin, died on a cross and resurrected after 3 days. From what Jesus is reputed to have said, I don't think he meant to say he was the only son of God, I think he was misunderstood, his meaning was that we are all sons of god, himself included. The Roman Catholic Church was established a long time after he died, I believe they used the cult around Jesus to establish the church and embellished the legend with various beliefs already in existence in various other religions. For instance the legend of dying on the cross and being resurrected after 3 days has its origin in Egypt. The Egyptians took very careful note of the movement of the sun and noted the point at which it rose. In ancient times the sun would rise a little further south each day after midsummer and eventually on December 22 it would stop moving south, at which time it would rise in the Southern Cross constellation, thus it "died" on the cross. After 3 days the sun would rise in a more Northerly position and thus was resurrected or reborn. This is I believe where the legend of gods dying on the cross and being reborn originated. I dare say many people will not agree.

Grinding stone, Dendera Temple, Egypt.
Most people know of the great construction achievements of the dynastic Egyptians such as the pyramids and temples of the Giza Plateau area as well as the Sphinx. Many books and videos show depictions of vast work forces hewing blocks of stone in the hot desert sun and carefully setting them into place.
