The mother and child story - The Pagan origins

12994077_xl_resize.jpg
After the death of Nimrod, Semiramis (his mother) conceived a son named Tammuz (child) allegedly immaculately 119. She claimed that Tammuz was the reincarnation of Nimrod 120 and was to be the saviour. Semiramis was worshipped as the mother goddess and was known as the ‘Virgin Queen of heaven’. 121 122

According to B. Walkers Encyclopaedia, Tammuz was known as the ‘saviour god’, ‘only begotten son’, or ‘son of the blood’. He was also called ‘healer’, ‘saviour’, ‘heavenly shepherd’, ‘good shepherd’. 86

S. Langdon states Tammuz is called the healer only in the sense that all life depended upon his sacrifice and especially upon his return from hell. 123
This is parallel with the story of Jesus allegedly descending into hell after his death and before resurrection is mentioned in Acts 2:31

“So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.” Genesis 11:7 KJV

Josephus states “they were dispersed abroad, on account of their languages, and went

out by colonies every where; and each colony took possession of that land which they light upon, and unto which God led them” 118

As the languages were confounded (confused / changed) the names of Nimrod , Semiramis and Tammuz also changed when the people dispersed to new lands. 109

The mother and child story also dispersed with them. Every civilisation seems to have a mother and child worship of some sort, the story would have evolved with slight variations but all rooted in the story of Semiramis and Tammuz. 109
All stories usually state the child was conceived miraculously through the mother. Most traditions assert that the mother was a virgin where other traditions do not.
