The Story of Heru, also known as Horus, is the original Hero story.

Hopefully you know by now most things of the modern world have African origins. Science, Mathematics, Astrology, Religions and much more can be traced back to the continent of Africa. Scholars like John G. Jackson, Dr. Ben, Anthony Browder, Ivan Van Sertima, and John Henry Clarke have thoroughly proven this within their highly celebrated bodies of work.

One ‘African Origin’ is the origin of the “Hero” story. Everything from the story of Jesus to almost every movie that was ever produced is based on this very African concept, the story of “Heru” or “Horus”.

According to John G. Jackson’s Christianity Before Christ, “The ancient Egyptians worshipped several gods named Horus. Over a period of thousands of years the various Horuses blended together until there were only two left: Horus the Sun-god and Horus the son of Osiris and Isis.”

The Story Of Heru

The Pan African Alliance (panafricanalliance.com) summarizes the story of Heru:

Heru, endowed with the spirit of his father, was given the mission of defeating his wicked uncle Set and restoring order to his father’s kingdom on Earth as the rightful heir to a unified Kemet.

Heru grew up in hiding to prevent Set from discovering that Ausar had an anointed son, but all the while preached of his fathers kingdom and preparing his disciples for the day of battle. The battle between the forces of Set, in the North, against the forces of Heru, in the South, was apocalyptic.

In the end, it was Horus and his righteous armies that was victorious.

Once the battle was over, instead of killing his uncle Set Heru bound him in chains and cast him into an abyss. At the moment of his victory, Heru was transformed into a falcon and was called up into heaven to stand before his father and give testament.

Ausar was well pleased, blessed him, and sent him back down to Earth to rule as the legitimate Pharaoh of a unified Kemet. Once Heru assumed his throne on Earth, Ausar was also able to be at rest and assumed his throne as the Lord of the Underworld.

The Original Hero

Heru is the original “Hero”. An article from medium.com explains how:

The word Hero has its origin of and definition from in the mythology of Ancient Egypt. The Ancient Egyptian word and god Heru is the root word and archetype of the modern word and protagonist Hero. Heru was adopted into Greek as Horus from which the word Hero is derived. According to Egyptian scholar Dr. Charles S. Finch III, MD, Horus is the prefigu­ration of the Ancient Greek word and concept of the Hero.

In Ancient Egypt Heru’s (Horus’) archetypical characteristics are those of the avenger, the Divine son, the fulfiller, heir; king, bringer of light, good twin, champion over darkness and evil and later redeemer. These multifaceted aspects of Heru (Horus) are divided according to three categories — symbolic, mythological, and archetypal.
