Did you know that there were similarities between Krishna and Jesus Christ.
here it is:
- Yeshua and Krishna were called both a God
- Krishna and Jesus were of royal descent.
- Both were visited at birth by wise men and shepherds, guided by a star.
- Angels in both cases issued a warning that the local dictator planned to kill the baby and had issued a decree for his assassination. The parents fled. Mary and Joseph stayed in Muturea; Krishna's parents stayed in Mathura.
- Jesus was called "the lion of the tribe of Judah." Krishna was called "the lion of the tribe of Saki."
- Both claimed: "I am the Resurrection."
- Both referred to themselves having existed before their birth on earth.
- Both were god-men: being considered both human and divine.
- Both performed many miracles, including the healing of disease. One of the first miracles that both performed was to make a leper whole. Each cured "all manner of diseases."
- Both cast out indwelling demons, and raised the dead.
- Both were meek, and merciful. Both were criticized for associating with sinners.
- Both celebrated a last supper. Both forgave his enemiesKrishna's "...foster-father Nanda had to journey to Mathura to pay his taxes" just as Jesus foster-father Joseph is recorded in the Gospel of Luke as having to go to Bethlehem to pay taxes.
- "The story about the birth of Elizabeth's son John (the Baptist), cousin of Jesus, corresponds with the story in the Krishna myth about the birth of the child of Nanda and his wife Yasoda." Nanda was the foster-father of Krishna.
- The Greek God Dionysos, Jesus and Krishna were all said to have been placed in a manger basket after birth.
- Were Krishna and Yeshua both crucified and later raised to heaven?
In addition to the above points of correspondence between Yeshua and Krishna, there may be one more similarity: they may have both been crucified.
In his book, Graves stated flatly that both Yeshua and Krishna were crucified between two thieves, at the age of about 30 to 36 by "wicked hands." However, this may have been wishful thinking. The "common, orthodox depiction of Krishna's death relates that he was shot in the foot with an arrow while under a tree." But:
The author Jacolliot, referring to the "Bagaveda-Gita and Brahminical traditions," states that the body of Krishna: "was suspended to the branches of a tree by his murderer, that it might become the prey of the vultures...[Later] the mortal frame of the Redeemer had disappeared--no doubt it had regained the celestial abodes..."
- M. Guigniaut's Religion de l'Antiquité, which states: "The death of Crishna is very differently related. One remarkable and convincing tradition makes him perish on a tree, to which he was nailed by the stroke of an arrow."
- There are other references to Krishna being crucified, and being shown with holes in his feet, hands and side.
