Epiphany (January 6) -- A Special Day!

A cycle of 40 days after the Egyptian Last Supper (27 November) and the death of Osiris was/is the Epiphany on 6 January, which was later adopted in the Christian calendar of events for the same objective.

So what did happen 40 days earlier? In the Isis and Osiris allegory, Osiris was invited by Seth to a feast where Seth and his accomplices tricked Osiris into laying down in a makeshift coffin, closed and sealed the chest, and threw it into the Nile. Seth became the new Pharaoh—as the coffin containing the lifeless body of Osiris flowed into the Mediterranean Sea. The date of such a (symbolic) event was given by Plutarch, in his Moralia Vol. V (356),

"... and those who were in the plot ran to it and slammed down the lid, which they fastened by nails from the outside.
... 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.

The Loss of Osiris is now celebrated in the Abu Sefein (reference to Osiris' two emblems—the crook and the flail) Festival in Egypt at the same date 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/re-birth of the renewed king on 25 December.

>> 40 days after the Last Supper is Epiphany (6 January).

Like the Ancient Egyptian traditions, the original intent of Epiphany in the Eastern Church is for one about to be baptized—the sacrament of Baptism. As stated earlier, baptism represents figurative death and rebirth. A born-again cycle typically takes 40 days (from 27 November to 6 January). At the end of the cycle, the people bathe in the Nile (baptism), and the fast is broken. Happy days are here again.

-same is found in the folk Bulgarian song "Izlel e Delio haidutin"-- 'haidutin' means 'Abu Sefein'!
