Egyptians honored Amun-Ra as king of the gods and creator of the universe. They also believed him to be the father of the pharaohs, who were referred to as “Sons of Ra”. The cult of Amun-Ra remained strong throughout Egypt until almost the time of Jesus. The ancient Greeks associated Amun-Ra with Zeus, their own supreme god.
The Egyptians valued gold, not for it’s rarity, as we do, but for it’s color. It was used to represent the power of the sun, and was thought to connect them with the sun god Amun-Ra.
AMEN comes from Egypt’s ancient sun god Amun-ra.
