In this companion lecture to our African Origins of Christianity Tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Jabari Osaze provides an even more in-depth analysis of the history of early Christianity. This history clearly traces the primary concepts of Christianity to Ancient Kemet through its influence in the Mediterranean region. Ancient Kemet's intricate spiritual system was fully formed thousands of years before most systems in the European world. As this is a multimedia presentation, you will see dozens of supporting images.
Brother Osaze will also describe how the esoteric symbols of Ancient Kemet and other the "mystery" based traditions in the Mediterranean region were appropriated by early Christians who were then divided in a large array of groups. When some of these Christian groups sought to utilize Christianity as a unifying factor in the Roman Empire, they claimed many of these ancient symbols for themselves. This bloody history is unfamiliar today. Most who claim to study the history of Christianity simple acquaint themselves with one source; the Bible. Fortunately this story can be reconstructed, many of Christianity's most familiar characteristics can be found in these earlier traditions. This lecture will describe many of these characteristics and illustrate their African origins. Including but not limited to:
● The Concept of a Spiritual (Virgin) Birth
● Divine resurrection to be shared by the righteous
● Divine birth heralded by Three Kings
● Baptism and Communion
● Faultless death in order for others to enter "heaven"
Don't miss this powerful lecture! Ample time will be provided for discussion and debate. The point of this interactive lecture is not to dismantle Christianity, but to properly situate it's origins.
