The sarcophagus of Nectanebo II and ritual full immersion (baptismal) bath of the Attarin Mosque, Alexandria.

 

The sarcophagus of Nectanebo II, last native ruler of Egypt, but was never used. Nectanebo fled to Nubia, following the Persian invasion in 343 BC. The sarcophagus was later used as a ritual bath in the Attarin Mosque in the former church of St Athanasius in Alexandria. It is inscribed with extracts from the Book of Amduat.

This sarcophagus was collected by the Napoleonic Expedition to Egypt, and came to the British Museum in 1802, as a result of the Treaty of Alexandria.

PLEASE NOTE - We do not claim there is salvation in any other name than Jesus Christ, we do point out there are and have been many false baptisms that DO NOT SAVE!

As with all things pertaining to salvation - search the scriptures.

 

Act 17:11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

Joh 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.
