  • The exact same story none. You will find several similar stories, but of course most followers will tell you it's the differences that matter most. Here's a link for you to follow up and research on

  • 1.Attis (204 B.C.)--Born of the virgin Nana on Dec. 25th. Both the father AND the son. Died and was reborn. His followers were the first to be "washed in the blood", through the slaying of a sacred bull, where they stood under a grating to allow the blood to shower down on them.
    2. Osiris (1,800 B.C.)--Crucified and resurrected. The first to pass judgement on his followers for their good and bad deeds.
    3. Dionysus (1,200 B.C.)--Born of a mortal woman and sired by the god Zeus. He was killed by being rent apart and was resurrected from his buried heart. First to promise his followers eternal life through baptism and salvation, his resurrection celebrated by a communal meal. Called "King of Kings", "Savior", "Redeemer" and "Alpha and Omega", among others.

  • 4. Mithras (300 B.C.)--Born of a virgin on Dec. 25th, traveled with 12 disciples teaching and illuminating, was crucified, buried in a tomb and resurrected. Called "Savior", "Son of god", "Redeemer" and "Lamb of God". His followers kept the Sabbath holy, eating sacramental meals in rememberance of him (Bread and wine which were symbolic of his body and blood). He baptised with blood.
    5. Krishna (1200 B.C.)--Born of a virgin and a god. Whose mortal father was a carpenter. Of royal descent. Had the divine title of "Savior". Was without sin. Crucified between two thieves.
    6. Quexalcote (300 B.C.)--Virgin birth--duh! The first to be tempted in the desert for 40 days. A painting in the Codex Borgianus depicts him nailed to a cross, between two thieves. He resurrects and ascends to heaven.

    There are over 35 known god-men listed in the "Book your Church doesn't want you to read." Are we seeing a pattern here??

  • Exactly the same story? None

    VERY similar story? Lots! Some came before Jesus' time, and some after his time. Some are very similar, and some just have a few similarities.

    What all that means to me may be different than what it means to you or another person. It's up to each person to decide for themselves when it comes to things like faith and belief. I find it fascinating to study the parallels from a historical perspective though.

  • Does it matter to you? You are the one that asked the question... so obviously it does matter to you. Read the above link ... it will tell you that many fail to realise that there are historical prove of the existance of Jesus and none of Kirshna ( who is actually the 8th incarnation of of the god Vishnu.)

    Interesting: it is claimed that In some traditions he(Kirshna) died on a tree or was crucified between two thieves

    This is untrue and there is a KEY quote from a MAJOR skeptic/unbeliever that I want to use here: "In fairness, however, one purported similarity needs to be discredited. Skeptics sometimes cite Kersey Graves in Sixteen Crucified Saviors or Godfrey Higgin's Anacalypsis (which Graves drew from) in asserting that Krishna was a crucified deity. No such event occurred in the Gita or in any recognized Hindu scripture.

  • *

    Similarities between Krishna and Christ:

    Both are held to be really god incarnate

    Both were incarnated and born of a woman

    The mother in each case was a holy virgin

    The father of each was a carpenter

    Both were of royal decent

    Each had the title of "Savior"

    Both were "without sin"

    Both were crucified

    Both were crucified between two thieves

    Each taught of a great and final day of judgment

  • At least TWO others- Horus and Krishna. Both have almost exactly the same story... Does it matter? Especially since the story of Horus came before the story of Christ?
