In any case, Set was considered a scheming deity who sought to overthrow the reign and sovereignty of his brother Osiris. After Set murdered Osiris he was sought out by Horus (the son of Osiris and Isis) who wounded him in the groin with a spear. Set managed to spear out one of Horus’ eyes but was ultimately overthrown by the god of light.
Horus, another Egyptian name for the sun, was said to have been born of the immaculate virgin Isis (the Moon), on the twenty-fifth of December. On this day, an effigy of the infant Horus, lying in a manger, was exhibited amid great rejoicings. Being of royal descent, his life was sought by Typhon (darkness or night) and in consequence he was brought up secretly...Like other sun-gods, he was tempted, but was not vanquished...He was called the Royal Good Shepherd, Lord of Life, Only-Begotten, Saviour, the Anointed or the Christ.
After Horus was born, he and his mother Isis had to hide from his evil uncle Set who had vowed to kill him. Set was afraid that Horus would grow up and avenge his father's murder. Isis and her son hid in the marshes and swamps of the Nile. Her symbol, the lily, which signified divine protection, was later adapted as a symbol for the Virgin Mary. One day, Horus was badly bitten by a scorpion. His body went limp and he fell into a comatose state. Isis grieved, thinking her son would not recover. This incident in the life of the Egyptian sun god was later adapted by Christian mythmongers.
[...] Horus was often referred to as the "blue-eyed" god.
