At KarnakAmun's cult center, priests were dedicated to Amaunet's service. The exact reason for this iconography is uncertain.

A survey conducted by the Church of England, for instance, found that 22 percent of adults in England did not believe Jesus was a real person.
Among scholars of the New Testament of the Christian Biblethough, there is little disagreement that he actually lived. Lawrence Mykytiuk, an associate professor of library science at Purdue University and author of a Biblical Archaeology Review article on the extra-biblical evidence of Jesus, notes that there was no debate about the issue in ancient times either. There is no definitive physical or archaeological evidence of the existence of Jesus.

It means that she or he, like Questions of authenticity continue to surround direct relics associated with Jesus, such as the crown of thorns he reputedly wore during his crucifixion one possible example is housed inside the Notre Dame Cathedral in Parisand the Shroud of Turina linen burial cloth purportedly emblazoned with the image of his face. The holy crown of thorns at the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.
Archaeologists, though, have been able to corroborate elements of the New Testament story of Jesus. While some disputed the existence of ancient Nazareth, his biblical childhood home town, archaeologists have unearthed a rock-hewn courtyard house along with tombs and a cistern. They have also found physical evidence of Roman crucifixions such as that of Jesus described in the New Testament.
The most detailed record of the life and death of Jesus comes from the four Gospels and other New Testament writings. Within a few decades of his lifetime, Jesus was mentioned by Jewish and Roman historians in passages that corroborate portions of the New Testament that describe the life and death of Jesus.
Historian Flavius Josephus wrote one of the earliest non-biblical accounts of Jesus. Thought to have been born a few years after the crucifixion of Jesus around 37 A. Mykytiuk agrees with most scholars that Christian scribes modified portions of the passage but did not insert it wholesale into the text.
In chronicling the burning of Rome in 64 A. Christus, the founder of the name, was put to death by Pontius Pilate, procurator of Judea in the reign of Tiberius. As a Roman historian, Tacitus did not have any Christian biases in his discussion of the persecution of Christians by Nero, says Ehrman.

The Bible.Ahmanet also known as Princess Ahmanetthe Mummyand the Monster is the titular main antagonist of the horror fantasy action-adventure film The Mummywhich is the first and only film of Universal Studios' Dark Universe series.
She is a powerful ancient Egyptian mummy with godlike dark powers and has returned from the dead on a quest for world domination. Her return as the reanimated mummy was result of her making a deal with Set, Egyptian God of Death, for dark powers she had, allowing her to cheat death itself.
For Dark Universe franchise's version of The MummyAhmanet is conceived as ancient titular female mummy and former princess unlike other well-known incarnation called Imhotep who happened to be male and an Egyptian High Priest, and her debut film in the series reimagines The Mummy's origins where the character emerges in modern world for the first time as undead being as opposed to s.
Also, before they come up with the idea of The Mummy's incarnation being female, they originally intended the character to be male like Imhotep, which implied that Imhotep's origins will be rebooted or a new character based on him created altogether.
But following the release of X-Men: Apocalypsethe filmmakers of Dark Universe series become worried that their concept for The Mummy as male character become too much similar with main antagonist of the film.
Ahmanet was born in the 's B. However, Ahmanet's mother died as a result of giving birth to her. With no other heirs, Menehptre promised Ahmanet that, when he died, she would ascend to his throne as Pharaoh. As such, she was trained physically and mentally day and night, develop into a beautiful, cunning and ruthless princess and future Pharaoh would.
However, in B. This child was a boy, and Menehptre took back his promise to Ahmanet, naming the boy as his heir. This of course, practically ruining Ahmanet's claim to the throne.
Heartbroken, angry, betrayed and determined to usurp the throne by any means necessary, Ahmanet went to the dark path where she sold her soul to Set, Egyptian God of Death, who promises to make her the Queen in exchange for gaining a corporeal form. Through an undead apparation, Set bestowed Ahmanet his dagger, Dagger of Set, the source of her would be unholy powers and catalyst for Set to enter the host for his essence.
After executing her family, Ahmanet prepares to make a human sacrifice, her lover, to complete the pact. However, she immediately captured by her father's loyal priests and condemned to be buried alive far away from Egypt in Mesopotamia. Wary with whatever calamity that will consume the world should her body disturbed by anyone, Menehptre's priests arranged to have her body sealed in a secret prison underground.
The area where she was buried was rich of liquid mercury, her only weakness, and her sarchopagus, which demonic in designed, was arranged so it constantly submerged inside pool of mercury to keep her weakened and deprived of outside world.
Not only that, everyone who participated in the ritual erased her name from Egypt's history book and keep the location of Ahmanet's tomb a secret though surviving clues of the tomb's location fell into English Crusaders when they raid Egypt during one of their campaigns.
Ahmanet would remain alive in that tomb for years, her anger never once ceasing. Ahmanet would remain imprisoned until June 9,when an airstrike called upon by soldier of fortune Sergeant Nick Morton and his friend Corporal Chris Vail revealed her tomb.
Just as Jenny realized that the tomb is in fact, a prison, Morton shot the contraption keeping Ahmanet's sarcophagus submerged in the mercury, and the sarcophagus was raised so that all three could see it. As the sarcophagus came into view, Morton began to see visions of Ahmanet, who referred to him as her "Chosen One. Just then, a large amount of camel spiders, summoned by Ahmanet, began to attack the group with one bit Vail, marking him with evil magic they carry.
After Morton reprimanded Vail for being freaked out at the non-poisonous camel spiders, the three unloaded the sarcophagus and took it to the helicopter to transport it to London. On the way to London, Halsey began to decipher the hieroglyphics written on Ahmanet's sarcophagus and learned the forbidden history of Ahmanet's treachery. Meanwhile, Vail, who had started to take a nap, was suddenly possessed by Ahmanet's evil magic transmitted by the cursed camel spider earlier.
Vail began to tamper with the sarcophagus to try and free Ahmanet, and when Colonel Greenway tried to stop him, Vail stabbed Greenway in the chest twice, killing him.
Vail then turned his attention to the others on the plane, swinging his knife around wildly, only being stopped once Morton shot him in the head. After Vail's death, Ahmanet summons a huge murder of crows which crashed into the plane, destroying the glass, killing the pilots, and destroying the engines.
The plane began to descend quickly, and eventually everyone except Morton and Halsey fell out. Morton, believing that there was more than one parachute inside the plane, gave the last parachute to Halsey. The plane soon crashed, killing Morton on impact. Unbeknownst to him, Ahmanet revived him with her dark powers before stayed in the crash site.
