I was watching the film "Clash of the Titans" and i could not fail to notice the similarities in pronunciation between Jesus and Zeus. Also the plot of the story is very similar to the Christian story.
The Greek Gods were in their usual monarchical power struggle with Zeus ruling the Sky, Poseidon ruling the seas and Hades (his brother) banished to the fiery underworld as a punishment for rebellion against zeus . Zeus somehow slept with a woman (the wife of a king) and gave birth to Perseus, who became half God and Half man. Perseus was to reconcile man back to the Gods because men had rebelled against the Gods.
Anyway, Christians have not been able to tell us the real meaning of the name Jesus. It is obviously a Roman name, like Christ (Christos). Although Christos could be translated to mean the Hebrew world Messiah, i have found no direct translation for the meaning of Jesus. Christians most times translate Hebrew name Yeshua or Joshua, (meaning Jehovah is salvation) to Jesus. I do not see the connection between the Hebrew name Joshua with the Latin name Jesus, their pronunciation is completely different, and there is no parallel of Joshua in Latin, since they had no Jehovah.
On the other hand, the supreme God during the formative years of Christianity was Zeus. The worship of Zeus and the pantheon of Gods was in fact the official religion of Rome, and it was from this religion that Christianity was formulated. So it is likely that early Christianity was just a rebranding of the old religion. It is said that Jesus (which was written as IESUS until 400yrs ago, since J was not originally part of the English alphabet) could be translated to mean "HAIL ZEUS"

Other names attached to Zeus are;
Tarsus means Sweat of Zeus ,
Dionysus means the Son of Zeus ,
So also Jesus could mean hail Zeus,

This is very revealing because Christians claim that Power lies in the exact pronunciation of the word Jesus.
