Most of the religious world doesn't overstand why Egypt is so prominant in the bible. All of the most important biblical characters at some point went to Egypt. Abraham (Ab-Heart, Ra-Most High God of Egypt, Ham-Hammites, black folk), Josesph, Moses(known as Thutmose in Egypt) and according to scriptures, even Jesus(known as Horus in Egypt) went there for 12 years.
The word Amen, comes from the names of the Ancient Egyptians Gods, Amun,Amon,Atum,Atun,Aten and even Amen. Check out the bible scripture Rev 3:14, heck I'll give it to you. Very interesting, things that make you say hmmmmmmm..........
This is from one of the many versions of the bible, the New King James
"And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans[a] write,˜These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God:
Notice this scripture doesn't appear to be a prayer and the mention of the word Amen is not ending a prayer. It "appears" to be talking about a group of individuals named the "Amen" watched the creation of GOD, G-Gomer, O-Oz, D-Dabar, Strength, Wisdom and Beauty of man.
Peace and Blessings to all
