A:Tammuz, also known as Dumuzi, was the shepherd-god and lover of the goddess Astarte or Inanna. Ezekiel 8:14 describes women in the Jerusalem Temple 'weeping for Tammuz'. We now know they were weeping because Inanna had condemned him to hell, after herself being crucified and resurrected. Tammuz was also the name of the tenth month of the Jewish calendar, and is still used as the Iraqi name for the month of July. Origen says of Tammuz in his "Comments on Ezekiel" (Selecta in Ezechielem) that "they say that for a long time certain rites of initiation are conducted: first, that they weep for him, since he has died; second, that they rejoice for him because he has risen from the dead." Note that Origen could not have observed Jews worshipping Tammuz, since they would not have worshipped Tammuz in the post-Exilic period.

Tammuz were said to be born of the virgin Myrrha on 25th December. Some say he was born in the very cave in Bethlehem now considered the birthplace of Jesus. Helena had the Nativity Church built at Bethlehem after demolishing the temple of Tammuz-Adonis.

Earl Doherty argues that Christianity began with a story like that of Tammuz, with all the action taking place in the spiritual realms.

This is a brief portrait of the Hebrew people before they had become entirely monotheistic.


Demons or vampires most say........but the fact that they come in a "boat" to get Dumuzi (Inanna's husband) seems a little weird.They come to bind his hands and neck....like some sea-faring enemy? Tammuz and his galla are part of Sumerian/Babylonian mythology, but had become popular throughout the Middle East in the 6th and 5th centuries BCE.

No, Jesus was not the first to be recorded as rising from the dead. Many ancient gods were said to have risen from the dead, particularly sun-gods. One example is Tammuz, for whom Ezekiel 8:14 describes women in the Temple of Jerusalem 'weeping for Tammuz'.

The Church of Christ was actually the name of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints from 1830 until 1838. At this time Church members realized that there were several churches with the name "Church of Christ", and both to avoid confusion and comply with a revelation from God (now found in Doctrine and Covenants 115), they changed the name to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.Now, there are several Christian churches who use the name "Church of Christ" or something similar. Some branched out of the restorationism movement, as did the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and some did not. These "Church of Christ" groups differ from each other and from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Some are independent individual churches, and some are groups of churches or denominations.To compare some of the larger "Church of Christ" groups to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, click the "Related Links" below.


The church of Christ is the church of Christ. Did Christ died for an occult?


Christology from above is ascending and it represents Christ as a man with some divine qualities. Christology from below is descending and it represents Christ as divine with some human qualities which can be interpreted as God.


One of the top Sumerian goddesses, Inanna (known in Babylon as Ishtar), was stripped naked and crucified, yet rose again and, triumphant, condemned to hell her lover, the shepherd-god Dumuzi (the Babylonian Tammuz). This became the centre of a major Sumerian sacred story, preserved in clay tablets dating over a thousand years before Christ.Ezekiel 8:14 tells of the "women weeping for Tammuz" at the north gate of the Jewish Temple. They were weeping because Inanna had condemned him to hell, after herself being crucified and resurrected. Although different in detail and now considered mythical, this can be compared to the feeling of sadness at Easter, although mixed with joy because Jesus died for our sins.


It is the name of a prayer. There is a long version and a short version. The short version is familiar to people in Ireland. It is the last section of the full prayer. This is the short version: Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ on my right, Christ on my left, Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down, Christ when I arise, Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me, Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me, Christ in every eye that sees me, Christ in every ear that hears me.


Tammuz. Vine's Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words explains, the modern cross "had its origin in ancient Chaldea, and was used as the symbol of the god Tammuz (being in the shape of the mystic Tau, the initial of his name) in that country and in adjacent lands, including Egypt.Ezekiel 8:13-15New King James Version (NKJV) 13 And He said to me, "Turn again, and you will see greater abominations that they are doing." 14 So He brought me to the door of the north gate of the Lord's house; and to my dismay, women were sitting there weeping for Tammuz.15 Then He said to me, "Have you seen this, O son of man? Turn again, you will see greater abominations than these."Some believe 'Tammuz' is a name/title given to Nimrod who lead the 1st great apostasy post the Flood.
