A Christian Perspective: Aliens in Ancient Egypt

"Dr. Michael S. Heiser takes a look at some artwork found in the tomb of Ptah Hotep. Does the artwork show evidence of an alien being?" from the video introduction.

There is in our fallen world entities (Angels & Demons) that are active and involved in the world around us. Those that have evil intentions against us seek to distract us into idol worship, be it Grey Aliens or Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs.

The Bible presents to us God through Christ and the ultimate reality of our fallen world. Our popular culture is not Christian and leads us to ruin if we let it.

Listen to what Dr. Heiser has to say. - Andy

"Aliens in Ancient Egypt? The Painting in the Tomb of Ptah Hotep

But what’s the proof of such a claim? Ancient alien theorists claim the photo in Figure 1 shows a typical “gray” alien in an ancient Egyptian tomb painting. One conspiratorial website called it “one of the most important clues to alien intervention into our ancient history ever made.”

The image comes from the tomb of Ptah Hotep. Ptah Hotep was not a pharaoh; he was a vizier—the co-regent of the pharaoh. Specifically, Ptah Hotep was vizier to the pharaoh Djedkare Isesi (ca. 25th-24th century BC), a pharaoh in Egypt’s Old Kingdom, the pyramid age.

The picture is of poor quality—but that works to the advantage of the idea, as does not revealing the context of the image. As we’ll see below, sharper images and a fuller context demolish the idea that this is an extraterrestrial life form....As noted earlier, anyone familiar with Egyptian material culture would know that the “alien” in the tomb painting of Ptah Hotep is a lotus flower in a standing vase. Instead of one of the most important clues to alien intervention into our ancient history ever made,” we have a tragically comical misidentification.

from the article: Aliens in Ancient Egypt?

We have all sinned and deserve God’s judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
