What Is The Connection Between Jesus And Zeus?

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.

The pinecone at the end of zeus staff reffers to the pineal gland ...that is a symbol for the third eye or seat of the soul...

The pope and ilumenati all have this pinecone as there main symbol and refer to this as being enlightened....

notice the pinecone on some cotholic pictures of jesus with the halow around his head..That sombolises the sun

sun god worship...it all related to sunday WORSHIP.

We are not to worsip or have ANYTHING to do with any false gods...!!!

Yahweh is the God of the Sabbath of the 7th day...He even say in the ten commandments that the sabbath will be the sign or mark that He is your God

Now everyone worships jesus on sunday 1st day..

Why do people always fight so hard to protect there babylon..but the truth is right in fromt of them but they wont even check it out.

God bless You.

Anyway his real name is Yeshua or Joshua or Jesus which is the Greek interpretation.

Funny how people will keep walking after their lusts till the end of times when the last trump sounds.

The truth is that LIGHT ( Yeshua ) is come into the world but MEN LOVE darkness rather than LIGHT and therefore continue to abide in wickedness.

man is frail with only a whiff of air in his nostrils which if it were not for the mercy of GOD can be extinguised in a moment.

"Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful.God chose things despised by the world, things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important.As a result, no one can ever boast in the presence of God." - 1 Corinthians 1:27-30

Great topic, have a friend that is into the worship of these myth gods (Hellenic something), speak a lot about these deities, I would really be interested if giving a reasonable idea of these religion from other sources.

As my belief is based of reasoning/facts/practicals and the way of life of the believers.

But some how there are a lot of similarities between the stories of the Bible and the literature of the Greek/Roman gods.

i.e. the war in heaven and the war in mount Olympus, the coming down of the Olympic god and the coming down of angels, Hades and Hell, Good and Bad, etc.

And again which of the books/literature first existed. GOD! there are so many mysteries yet to be unraveled, so brothers just live a good, quiet, loving, truthful and enjoying life, that's all.

No one religion or belief is the best or right one.

Like Jesus Christ said, "In my fathers house there are many mansions there, if not I would not have said I go to prepare a place for you, for where I be there also you'll be"

These means a lot of things for us mortals to contemplate on. PEACE

You just don't want to know the truth, because it conflicts with what you have been indoctrinated with. Even if Jesus himself came along to correct your erroneous beliefs, you wouldn't listen - you would probably just shout "go away, you hate our religion".

>>Interesting

>>& yet confusing

Yes, but they always did want to confuse you. Treat the congregations like mushrooms, because it keeps them quiet.

In truth, Saul-Paul had already sold the idea to the world that Jesus was some pauper carpenter, who was oppressed by the Jews and Romans. People always do like a good sob-story.

How was anyone going to say, after all this, that Jesus (Izas) was actually a king? (That is why he was called the King of the Jews in the New Testament, its a dead giveaway, really). In fact, his mother donated all the golden furniture for the Temple of Jerusalem, and this was later taken by the Romans and used to pay for the Coloseum in Rome. See how wealthy this family had been.

Indeed, according to the Talmud, Mary Magdalene was the richest woman in Judaea, and bought the high priesthood for Jesus with some 250 kg of silver. Jesus then tried to become emperor of Rome, but his plans back-fired and he lost this particular revolution and was crucified.

As it says in Mk 15:7

And there was one named Barabbas, who lay bound with them that had made revolution with him (Jesus?), and who had committed murder in the insurrection.

Yes, there was indeed a revolution, and much murder and mayhem had been committed. And that did not sit too well with Saul-Paul's new message of peace. By all means, it was covered up.

There is an alternative derivation.

We are looking for a Jewish royal prince (INRI) who came from the East (the Magi), but was without a palace and living in temporary accommodation. There is such a royal family, and there are titled King Monobazus and Queen Helena, and who were indeed Jewish royalty from the East (Parthia).

As it happens, their son was called Izates, but as a nickname he was always called Izas.

Here is your Jesus.

Jesus son of Mary [as] stands on his own by the Mercy of his Lord Who sent him.

Whatever people say to defame him (as) means zero in the scale of reality. His Lord is Sufficient as his Witness.

JESUS AND ZEUS - JESUS IS ZEUS

That statement is enough to call forth the stoners to take aim, yet it is a provable fact. And if Jesus is indeed Zeus, then that opens to us the whole world of mythology in which to seek ,that we may find the secret of life itself. So let us look at the evidence, and you decide.

JESUS IS THE SUN GOD

This statement is proved by the Bible. In Revelation 3:14 , Jesus is speaking, and refers to himself as "the Amen".

Amen Ra is the name of an Egyptian Sun God. This is borne out in Matthew 2:15. The scripture states that Joseph took Jesus to Egypt to fulfill the prophecy, " out of Egypt have I called my son". In other discussions with you, I have shown you how the life of Jesus duplicates the trajectory of the Sun in the sky. Also the fact that in Greek, the name Jesus has the numerical value of 888, which is the number of the mythical Sun.

THE RAM HEAD SUN GOD

Amen Ra is a specific Egyptian Sun God. It is the Ram Head Sun God. The part that is interesting here is that the Ram Head Sun God, in Greece, is connected with Zeus. In the Bible, Jesus is the Lamb of God.

THE ZEUS-JESUS CONNECTION

Now that we have established a connection between Jesus, Amen Ra, and Zeus, let us look into the mythology of Greece and see some striking similarities.

JESUS TO EGYPT/ZEUS TO CRETE

When Jesus was born, the wicked King Herod was killing all the children because he was afraid that Jesus would overthrow his kingdom. When Zeus was born, his wicked father Kronos was swallowing the newborns because he was afraid that Zeus was going to overthrow his kingdom. Jesus was taken to Egypt to escape from Herod. Zeus was taken to Crete to escape from Kronos.

The early Christians did not have paintings or statues of the Risen Christ. Unfortunately during the 4th - 5th centuries following the corruption and paganization of Christianity and the adoption wholesale of pagan practices and festivals like Easter, Christmas, etc, the statues of pagan gods were simply renamed thus you find several statues or paintings depicting Venus/Aphrodite being renamed to Mary, Isis/Horus as Madonna & Child and so on. Even some of the really old cathedrals were simply pagan temples converted to the use of corrupted Christianity.

don't think there was any "intentional" delay. its just when the followers of christ started evolving into a religion, its when they started writing what most probably are exaggerated (and even fictitous) biographies of jesus, since the intent was to convert people and depict his life as extraordinary/supernatural (e.g. the birth of christ stories n a lil christ ministering at the temple). christ never foretold a religion (christianity) forming from him (he actually was a practicing jew), and he never predicted that there'll be a book (the bible) outside of the jewish torah that'll be labelled word of god.

and i dont think the modern image of jesus was gotten from that of zeus. Christianity was birthed in Palestine, headed south into Africa, East into Asia and North into Europe. It was Europe and out of the Roman Empire that it stabilized. So European artists did what most regional artists do, represent things from their own perspective, thats why we have a european lookin image of jesus dat ignorant africans now worship, when Jesus was a Middle Eastern Jew not a European.

Not just that, the entire historical Jesus story remains a great mystery.

Firstly, The bible has stories of Jesus performing lot of miracles in the presence of many thousands of people. So I want to know. . .How come not one person thought, “Wow what a great man and what a great miracle. I need to write that down in my journal.”? How come no local philosophers or scribes during that time(of which there were many) thought these miracles were worthy of mention at all? The gospels came very long and were written by people whose identity remains unknown. . . .

If you're gonna make something up and pretend it was real, it helps immensely to put the said story far enough in the past to be sure there won't be anybody who can say "Hey, I was there and that wasn't what happened." Hence the delay for like 50, 60 and about 100 years before the stories were written down.

Thanks you for pointing out the error, i accept that it was a genuine mistake on my part. It was from one of the sources i copied the picture from.

But that has still not dampened the speculations that some statues of Jesus bears similar features with the statues of Zeus.

See the quote below from this site; http://library.thinkquest.org/TQ0311400/Ancient_Wonders/ancient_4.htm

You will agree with me that the statues of Jesus could not be an accurate representation of Jesus, since none of his statue or bust was known to have been made, unlike Caesar or other important roman personalities, so that leaves a question of where the statues came from.

@Wirinet, I dey o. Body dey inside cloth, thank God.

I believe that Jupiter is the same God as Zeus in the same way as Shango is the same God as Zeus and Thor is the same God as Zeus. I was just trying to make the point that the Romans wouldn't have called him Zeus. Even though the descriptions matched in many details. a Jupiter devotee would be quite different from a Zeus devotee.

I was just being silly with the idea that tiago was a deity. Tiago is simply the Spanish name for James, however it sounds completely different from James. Similarly the words Evan, John, Jan, Yanni etc are all various cultures pronunciations for the word John. They sound quite different.

therefore the fact that Jesus doesn't sound like Joshua does not necessarily mean that it is not the same word as Joshua.

My brother, at one time in western civilization, everybody - including kings, the priests, the philosophers and ordinary people, believed and worshiped Zeus. So it goes beyond weak minds, it is more of the powerful force of popular beliefs. In such a case it is very difficult to be different.

Further more i believe western civilization still worship Zeus and the pantheon of Gods under different guises, like as i have pointed out transforming Zeus in to IEZEUS, and adding the character of Horus to the mix. Also there is the continued worship of ISIS in the form of MARY, the naming of our days and months after Greco-Roman Gods ensure that they would live forever. Worship of these Gods is being revived in the celebration of Valentine (celebration of the God Cupid), Easter, Christmas and others.

Pastor, how you dey? its been awhile.

I know you are aware that Jupiter is the same God as Zeus. Greek Zeus is known in Rome as Zeu pater meaning "O, father Zeus". Which is pronounced Jupiter.

I honestly do not understand your comparism between James and Tiago. How does hebrew James translate to spanish Tiago. What is the Meaning of James and what is the meaning of Tiago? do they mean the same thing. or can you somehow transcribe James to sound phonetically like Tiago?

Aslo what is the connection between James and the ancient ancient andalusian deity. Sorry for my Ignorance of Tiago, but you can enlighten me a bit.

Christianity on the other hand and the old Greco - Roman religions are very connected. For one thing, at one time both were under the authority and control of the Roman state, so it would not be out of place to suppose one influenced the other.

Really? I thought the romans worshipped Jupiter.

Zeus was a greek god.

Can you see any similarity between the names Tiago and the name James.

James is a jewish name. The spanish pronounce it Tiago. Perhaps the spanish too are not referring to James but to some other name.

. . but let me properly get into the spirit of this thread. Tiago is actually an ancient andalusian deity. Nothing to do with James the brother of the lord at all. In fact, James must have been worshipped as well, when they first mixed him up with the andalusian deity.

How does that sound?

I was wondering how a jewish man got the name Jesus since no such name exists in the hebrew language, Did a man name Jesus ever live? I think no man named Jesus ever walked the surface of this earth. . . .You raised one very important point.  The name Yeshua  is mostly tanslated as Jesus but that is wrong since Yeshua means Joshua(Jehovah's salvation) and since the ancient greeks nothing about Jehovah I wonder why christians keep making that error in translation . Where then did the name Jesus come from if not from the patheon of the geek gods. . . . . .
