In Egyptian mythology, Anubis (TR:53) (LH:3) (TL:56), hieroglyphs: (feather, water, square, bird, god) or (feather, water, box, bird, jackal), aka Anpu (Budge, 1906) or Anup (Massey, 1890; Murdock, 2008), is the mortuary god; son of "Set and Nephthys" or "Osiris and Nephthys" (Plutarch, 100AD), depending on myth variant (from another older point of view, he was the son of Ra), noted for being the general anointer of the mummified Osiris prior to his resurrection (see: death and resurrection of Osiris); some versions assert he was the baptizer of Horus.
In 1100 to 800BC, Greeks renamed the Egyptian god: , icons: feather, water, box, bird, jackal, by the name Anubis (A-Nu-bis), the letters "nu" code for the water god Nun, meaning that Anubis, associated with the Aquarius constellation, was that portion of the constellations of the heaves associated with water.
In 500 to 300BC, Hebrews renamed Anubis as ‘Yanapu’ or ‘Yanape’ (Murdock, 2008), from Ya- "god/father" + -Napu, -Npu, or -Nape "Anubis", akin to "Yani" being the Hebrew equivalent of John, similar to Yahweh, the Hebrew god, pronounced as Ja-Way, meaning "god the father"
In 200BC, Romans called Anubis by the Latin name ‘Ionais’ (Latin), which became "Ion" (aka John), later becoming Johann (German) and "John", in modern English, which, in decoded speak, is short for "god Anubis" (Massey, 1906).

In 100 to 300AD, the Egyptian-Greek Anubis (Aquarius) model, became story of "John the Baptist", said to have baptized Jesus, the central platform motif of the newly forming "Christianity" religion. This, in short, was Roman recension monotheistic rescript of the motif of the sun (aka Horus) having to pass though the Aquarius constellation before being reborn on Dec 25th in solar strength or heat flux power.
These dates of seeing the "Aquarius constellation" (aka Anubis star constellation formation), in respect to the annual flooding of the Nile, are shown adjacent. In short, on 25 Jun, at the point of the helical rising of Sirius, a star previously absent for 70-days, the Nile, owing to snow melting in the Ethiopian mountains, begins to flood, rising to heights of 30-feet, lasting for 150-days, to Dec 25, the rebirth of the sun.
The Aquarius (Anubis) constellation, from the perception of the Egyptians (or Romans) is first seen on Jun 24th. This marks the start of the flood. Aquarius (Anubis) as a star shaped figure in the sky seems to have its head cut off on Aug 29, which became the reason invented as to why the Nile flood stopped or began to recede after this date. This became the story of John the Baptist being beheaded in the Bible.
The following are related quotes:
- “Written in 1280 BC, the Book of the Dead describes a god, Horus. Horus is the son of the god Osiris, born to a virgin mother. He was baptized in a river by Anup [Anubis] the Baptizer who was later beheaded. Like Jesus, Horus was tempted while alone in the desert, healed the sick, the blind, cast out demons, and walked on water. He raised Asar from the dead. ‘Asar’ translates to ‘Lazarus’. Oh, yeah, he also had twelve disciples. Yes, Horus was crucified first, and after three days, two women announced Horus, the savior of humanity, had been resurrected.”
