American Thanksgiving Holiday

Feasting [Thanksgiving/Last Supper] Before Fasting[Advent/Lent]

Americans are about to observe the "un-religious" feast of the year to give 'thanks"! In the very same time several churches observe several feasts that were mentioned in the Bible(Matthew 14:13-21; Mark 6:30-44; Luke 9:10-17; John 6:1-15),before the "event" of the biggest feast known as the Last Supper. All such feasts,we are told, occurred upon the safe return of the Biblical Jesus home after traveling [in Egypt]!

It has been the tradition to have a very large meal prior to beginning the [harsh] 40-days fasting. The 40-day cycle signifies the time to die or to be reborn.

Forty days after the burial of Osiris’ seeds into Mother Earth, Isis,Osiris met his demise. In the typical Ancient Egyptian story form, Plutarch writes in his Moralia, Vol. V (356, 13) about how Osiris upon his safe return home, was invited by Seth to a feast where Seth and his accomplices tricked Osiris into laying down in a makeshift coffin. Plutarch continues with:

". . .and those who were in the plot ran to it and slammed down the lid, which they fastened by nails from the outside and also by using molten lead. Then they carried the chest to the river and sent it on its way to the sea through the Tanitic Mouth. Wherefore the Egyptians even to this day name this mouth the hateful and execrable. Such is the tradition. They say also that the date on which this deed was done was the 17th day of Athor [27 November], when the sun passes through Scorpion."

The events of 17 Hatoor/Athor (27 November), as reported by Plutarch, have all the elements of the biblical Jesus’ Last Supper; i.e. a conspiracy, feast, friends, and betrayal. However, for the Ancient Egyptians, there are other meanings to the story. Plutarch, in Moralia, Vol. V (366, 39D), wrote:

" The story told of the shutting up of Osiris in the chest seems to mean nothing else than the vanishing and disappearance of water. . . at the time when. . . the Nile recedes to its low level and the land becomes denuded. As the nights grow longer, the darkness increases, and the potency of the light is abated and subdued. . ."

The Loss of Osiris is now celebrated in the Abu Sefein Mouled at the same time and with the same traditions; i.e. a big feast followed by a 40-day cycle of figurative death by fasting and other disciplinary means.

=> 28 days after the Last Supper is the birth/rebirth of the renewed king on 25 December.

=> 40 days after the Last Supper is Epiphany.
