Publisher's Synopsis

Ancient Egypt: The Light of the World, published shortly before his death in 1907, is by far Massey's most important work.  "It is a work which has occupied me over thirty years, and I shall be well content if in another century my ideas are acknowledged as correct". 

In Ancient Egypt, Massey concludes that Kamite thought was the direct progenitor of the philosophy, meta physics, religion and science that eventually shaped Western civilization. Complete facsimile edition of the 1907 classic in 2 volumes.

"The gnostic Jesus, the mystery-teacher of heaven, issues from the father in Amenta in the likeness of the dove as the expounder of the greater mysteries to the twelve disciples. He now says to the disciples, “I will tell unto you the mystery of the one and only ineffable, and all its types, all its configurations, all its regulations . . . for this mystery is the support of them all” (B. 2, 226, Mead).

This first ineffable mystery — looking within, as Pistis Sophia phrases it — is the mystery of God the Father. The first ineffable mystery — looking without — is the mystery of God the Son.

It is the mystery of the one God in the two aspects of the Father and Son; hence the mystery of the one and only ineffable, “looking within”, is also the mystery of the one and only word or logos “looking without” (B. 2). Jesus says, “I am come from the first mystery which is also the last” (B. 1, 1).

The power now given by the first mystery, within the veil, to him who personates the mystery to men, looking without, is received by the Son from the Father, from whom he emanated in the likeness of the dove, or the hawk and not as previously in the likeness of a puny mortal, the human Horus — born of the virgin mother as her blind and deaf, her dumb and impubescent child."
