One of the oldest resurrection stories comes from ancient Egyptian mythology, with the story of Isis and Osiris. Osiris, the son of Geb the sky god, oldest among his four siblings, became king of Egypt and he then subsequently married his sister Isis. However, his brother Set, jealous of Osiris, one day took it upon himself to transform into a monster. In the form of the monster, Set attacked and killed his brother Osiris, assuming the position of king for himself. Set then took Osiris’s body and cut it up into pieces, scattering them all over the land. Mourning the death of her husband, Isis, who possessed magical powers, sought out to collect all the pieces of Osiris’ body and put him back together. Once she had assembled all the pieces, she breathed the breath of life onto them and Osiris was resurrected from the dead. Together again, Osiris knew Isis and together they bore, Horus. Horus would later go on to challenge his uncle Set for the kingship. After a series of challenges, it is decided by the court of gods (even though Osiris had the final say) that Horus was the rightful king, not Set. The Lion King almost perfect mirrors the story of Osiris; There’s a king with a jealous brother, the jealous brother kills the king and takes over. Years later, the son of the original king emerges and challenges the jealous brother for the spot and eventually assumes his rightful position.
