Like Father Like Son 
In Bible teachings, Christ is sometimes referred to as the “Son of God” and at other times simply as God. In John’s Gospel, Christ says, “I and the Father are one.”
The history of the political and doctrinal struggles within the Church during and after the 4th century has largely been written in terms of the disputes over the nature of God and Christ and the relationship between them. All the “apparent” conflicting theories about these natures can be explained in the Ancient Egyptian context of the relationship between Osiris—the Father—and his Divine Son—namely Horus.
The interchangeable relationship between the Father and the Son is eloquently illustrated in several places in Egypt [as shown below], whereby Horus is being born out of Osiris, with the sun disk rising with the newborn.
The Egyptians believed in the anthropomorphic divinity, or Horus (Christ) ideal, whose life in this world and the world beyond was typical of the ideal life of man. The chief embodiment of this divinity was Osiris and his son, Horus. Neither, however, was ever regarded as historical, but were allegorical.
Osiris represents the mortal man carrying within himself the capacity and power of spiritual salvation. Every Egyptian’s hope was/is resurrection in a transformed body and immortality, which could only be realized through the death and resurrection of Osiris within each person.
Osiris symbolizes the subconscious—the capacity to act, to do; whereas Horus symbolizes consciousness, will, and the potential to act; to do.
