Jesus Christ, from the allegorical intertwining and other objects

Krishna, in India, who was born from the womb of the virgin Devaki, and whose birth was heralded, like the divine child, by a star.

That the records of religious cults of pagan origin find a parallel in the Christian doctrine and rites of the Gospels constitutes a perfect example of a mythical narrative. extrapoladain a entanglement allegorical of cultural objects, to the hypothetical divine biography of Christ.

For the Romans, before anyone heard of ChristtheDecember 25th It was a date of great celebrations, because the sol, putting an end to the darkness and hardships of winter, was born again. On the outskirts of Rome, Persian parishioners celebrated the advent of the god in his temple. Mithrawho he December 25thhad come down from heaven and been born in a cave or stable to redeem, the same as the nazarene, the man of his sins. In an Egyptian temple in Rome, we locate the god and savior Horusborn in a stable the December 25thlying in a manger, and the statue of his virgin mother Isis by his side. Just as in the Roman Catholic Church we find, on Christmas days, the baby Jesus and the figure of Maríasu madre. (Obispo William Montgomery Brown, Science and History for Girls and Boys. 1932).

In the same vein, we have the Krishnain India, who was born from the bowels of the virgin Devakiand whose birth was announced, as was the divine child, for a star. Despite his royal lineage, Krishna He came into the world in a cave. As soon as she was born, he talked to his mother. The same way, the divine child spoke in the crib. The Hindu deity was born while his adoptive father Nanda he was in the city paying his taxes to the king. Likewise, the Salvador was born while José, his adoptive father, was in town paying taxes to the governor. Both of them, Krishna y Christ they were worshiped by shepherds. both the king His head like the king Herod they ordered the massacre of all innocent males born the same night they saw the light Krishna y Christ. A heavenly voice warned Nanda to flee to Gakul with the infant Krishna through the river Jumna, so that he would escape the Rey Kansa. A voice, in a dream, advised José to go to Egypt with the child Jesusand thus could escape the wrath of the Rey Herod. Krishna y Christ They performed numerous miracles in the towns of Matarea and in Egypt, respectively. They were also crucified, the first pierced by an arrow, while the second by a spear. On the day of the death of Krishna the sun was obliterated at noon, while the star darkened from the sixth to the ninth hour on the day of the crucifixion of Christ. Krishna he descended into hell to raise the dead before returning to the abode of the gods. Christ descended to hell and on the third day he rose from the dead. Similar to Christ, Krishna he rose from the grave and finally ascended bodily into heaven in the presence of a multitude of onlookers. Krishna is the second person in the Hindu Trinity: Brahma, Vishnu y Siva Krishnawho is the embodiment of Vishnu. In the Christian Trinity Christ is considered the second person, the son. (TW Doane, Bible Myths / Nicodemus, The Apocryphal New Testament).

Compared to the life ofChristscholars point out that Buda born of a virgin named Mayao Maríaand his birthday was celebrated on December 25th. The wise men who visited him recognized his divinity. At the age of 12 Buda he surpassed the temple sages in knowledge and wisdom. Buda was tempted by Maraauthor of mal. Furthermore, he was transfigured on top of a mountain and illuminated by a brilliant aura of light. Finally, after completing his earthly mission, Buda he ascended bodily to the heavenly realms.

For the Aztecs of ancient Mexico, according to anecdotal compilations, Quetzalcoatlfeathered serpent and great Toltec deity, was born of a virgin, and the same asChrist he was tempted and fasted for 40 days. After being crucified he rose from the dead and went to the east. When the Spanish invaded their ancestral territories in the 16th century, the Mexica awaited his second coming. This was perhaps fulfilled with the invasion of the europillos. Likewise, we Christians continue to expect, despite the contradictions and inaccuracies of biblical theology, the second coming of the Messiahour savior.
