Understanding The Concept and Origins of Monotheism!
#OurHistoricFoundation Part 3 📹
An interesting event happened around the year 1350 BC that changed #Egyptian society for a short time but seems to have had a much more lasting affect on other cultures. The pharaoh at this time, #Akhenaten, decided that Egypt should become monotheistic. Instead of having so many gods including #AmunRa and others, he ordered that everyone should worship the sun, which was only depicted as a disk when drawn, rather than having human form.
#Akhenaten named his sun Tutankhaten, which means “the living image of Aten”. This name was not intended to be taken literally, since Aten does not have a humanlike image, but probably was meant to signify that this child was designated by the one true God #Aten as the next leader of Egypt. Akhenaten's decision caused the priests of Amun-Ra to lose much of the power they once had, and this angered them. Akhenaten died when Tutankhaten was still young. When Tutankhaten became pharaoh, the priests of Amun-Ra convinced him to restore the previous religious traditions. He complied with this and brought back the main god Amun-Ra and all of the other gods as well. He also changed his own name to Tutankhamun, which means “the living image of Amun”. This man is, of course, the famous King Tut. Tutankhamun was actually not all that remarkable, in Egyptian history, for much more than restoring the old polytheistic system. He is far better known to the average person today than probably any other pharaoh because his tomb and mummy were largely intact and full of treasures when they were discovered, whereas all of the others were robbed long before the advent of modern archeology. .
