Episode 019: Osiris and Jesus

apologetics Philosophy of Religion podcast Theology / Biblical Studies


Is Jesus just Osiris with a new face? In Episode 19 I look at the sceptical argument claiming that Christianity was really just a collection of beliefs borrowed from pagan religions, and that Jesus was just a re-hash of one or many other Messiah or god-man figures. As there would be no way to deal with all of these other religions in one episode, I’ve chosen to use the example of the ancient Egyptian deity Osiris. In short, the sceptical argument is not particularly well supported by the facts.

    Good episode. I am sending this to my Dad who recently sent me one of those youtube links accusing Christianity of plagiarizing the messiah concept.

    It’s pronounced “toe-pee-kuh” Kansas. 😉
