The usage of Amen, meaning "so be it", as found in the early scriptures of the Bible is said to be of Hebrew origin... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amen

Obviously it has nothing to do with 'worshipping'...

Thank you for the definition of the word meaning NDanger old chum. Amen does sound a lot like Amen (Ra), as it is occasionally spelt. I wonder where the Hebrews (Habiru) got the word from.

The point I did a clumsy job at driving at is that modern Abrahamic religions subtly incorporate a lot of beliefs and practices that seem to have originated in Ancient Egypt. I make no judgement though, it is simply an observation.

Amen is the liturgical response now used not only in Judaism but also in Christianity and Islam.

The word has the same Hebrew root as emunah (faith) and is also connected with the word emet meaning "truth."

The idea expressed is of firm trust, acceptance, and reliability.

Amen is found in a variety of contexts in the Bible (Numbers 5: 22; Deuteronomy 27: 15; 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26; I Kings I: 36; Isaiah 65: 16; Jeremiah II: 5; 28: 6; I Chronicles 16: 36; Nehemiah 5: 13; 8: 6; Psalms 41: 14; 72: 19; 89: 52; 106: 48). Louis Ginzberg has translated amen as "So be it" or "So shall it be" and has described it as "perhaps the most widely known word in human speech."

What say you?

I will be sure to check it out when I have a free moment. Thank you for the thoughtful and informative reply. I was not attempting to be rude towards anyone with this thread but I have noticed a startling amount of similarities between the Abrahamic religions and the religion of Ancient Egypt.

The Jewish people still claim that they were slaves in Ancient Egypt although the only evidence available suggests that they were indeed the slavers. This is primarily why they were evicted from Egyptian society. It (eviction/expulsion) has happened to them many times before and is likely to happen again.

I think they "borrowed" a lot from the religion of Ancient Egypt before they left. This is most likely why there is such a multitude of striking similarities between the Abrahamic beliefs and those of Ancient Egyptians. This is just my opinion of course. Many people do share it however.

You are quite probably right about that. This thread was made on a whim due to a random thought that occurred to me. Take it or leave it but there is a definite similarity between the words. Much like "Hebrew" and "Habiru" (the original name of the Hebrew people).

Tell me when this thread is updated:
