The Laughing Jesus


"He who will not eat of my body and drink of my blood, so that he will be made one with me and I with him, the same shall not know salvation." ---Inscription to Mithras similar to  John 6:53-54.

 The stories of Christ  and Mithra are not just very similar Myths, they are the same allegorical yarn spun for the uninitiated since the dawn of civilization . Adaptations and mutations have occurred from time to time and culture to culture. The basic story however remains the same and evokes the same symbolism. - Printer Ink, Toner, & More

Birth of Jesus  and Mithra 

Virgin Birth

Jesus was born to The Blessed Virgin Mary in a cave in Bethlehem.

Mithra was born to the Blessed Virgin Myrrha in a cave in Bethlehem.

 Adonis is another trans-cultural mutation of the Mithra Legend . Saint Jerome, the ecclesiastic who translated the original Latin of the Bible tells us that --"The death and resurrection of Adonis, the mythical savior of the Syrians, were observed in the very cave where the Christian savior was believed to have been born. " --The very same cave that most scholars believe Jesus was born in, {and that Christian Authorities are in agreement with}  is the very same cave that Mithra was said to have been born in Centuries earlier.

Jesus' Birth is celebrated between December 25 and January 6.

Mithras Birth is celebrated between December 25 and January 6.

According to biblical accounts. The only clue we have from the canonical scriptures of the New Testament as to the birthday of Christ is  Luke 2:8 "Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night."  Shepherds did not live out in the fields in December , hence, Jesus Christ was probably not born in the winter on December 25.  The December 25 date was inherited by Christianity and can be dated back to pre-mithraic and multi-cultural sources.  Many ancient religions celebrated high holy days around December 25 through January 6 and it can usually be traced to a winter solstice . As the longest night of the year, December 21 is also a turning point, after which the days grow longer. In ancient times it symbolized the triumph of the Sun God over the powers of darkness, so actually even though The birth of Mithra is celebrated at a time coinciding with the celebration of the Birth of The Jewish Christ, and the early Christians adapted this From Mithraism it is not necessarily the denotation of the birth of a personage, but the denotation of the re-birth in a sense of the Sun, while the Christians denote it as the birth of the Son.


 Mithra's birth was celebrated on December 25th,  by early pre-Christian Mithraists. But was originally celebrated in Persia & India on Dec. 21, the longest Night of the year.


"On this day also the Birthday of Christ was lately fixed at Rome in order that while the heathen were busy with their profane ceremonies, the Christians might perform their sacred rites undisturbed. They call this the Birthday of the Invincible One; but who is so invincible as the Lord? They call it the Birthday of the Solar Disk, but Christ is the Sun of Righteousness."  4th century Bishop John Chrysostom



The Apostles


Jesus had Twelve Disciples .

Mithra had twelve Disciples - symbolic of the Zodiac.

A major difference is the Twelve disciples of Jesus being Human, as opposed to being symbolic of Heavenly bodies in the case of Mithra .

The Zodiac and the Bible



Death and resurrection


Jesus resurrection is celebrated every year. on Easter, at which time he was resurrected.

Mithra resurrection was celebrated every year.  His principal festival on what was later to become Easter.


Jesus and Mithra were both buried in a tomb and  resurrected after three days.

In both religions this is referred to as The Three days of Darkness.



Resurrection : Myth or Reality?


Last Supper

Before being crucified Jesus had his Last Supper with his twelve disciples

Before returning to heaven, Mithra had his Last Supper with his twelve disciples, representing the twelve signs of the zodiac.


The Last Supper with Twelve followers predates Jesus by many centuries, and was not necessarily copied directly from  Mithraism by Christians .  It was a common theme evoked by many earlier earlier Pagan religions.




Ceremonies and Symbolism

Catholics engage in a ritual Eucharist signed by a cross.

Mithraists engaged in a ritual Eucharist signed with a cross.


Catholics Celebrate a Mass in which they drink wine and eat bread to symbolize the body and blood of Jesus.

Mithraists Celebrated a Myazda in which they drank wine and ate bread to symbolize the body and blood of Mithra.


Purification through a ritualistic baptism was required of the faithful in both religions.


Jesus was identified with the Lamb & at times the Lion

Mithra was identified with the Lamb & at times the Lion


The Mithraic Holy father wore a red cap and garment and a ring, and carried a shepherd's staff

The Pope wears a red cap and garment and a ring and carries a shepherds staff.


Priests of Mithraism bore the Title father.

Catholic priests bear the Title Father - despite Jesus specific proscription of the acceptance of such a title

Matthew 23:9 "And do not call anyone on earth 'father,' for you have one Father, and he is in heaven."

The major traditions of The Original Christian Church of Rome, are little more than the Traditions of Mithraism, whose traditions date back to the ancient pre-Christian middle east and India.




Sun Symbolism


Jesus was identified as the SON of God - Mithra was a SUN God and is identified with SUN.


Mithra was a Sun-God / Solar Deity. An inscription in the Vatican states , "He who will not eat of my body, nor drink of my blood, so that he may be one with me and I with him, shall not be saved." This inscription is from the remains of the temple the Vatican was built over, a temple dedicated to Mithras.


Jesus is depicted with a Halo - Mithra is depicted with a Halo. Halo has synonymous meanings and relates to "The Light"

Both were referred to as "The light of the World."


Roman Emperor Constantine, who made Christianity legal throughout Rome, was a worshipper of Sol Invictus/ the invincible Sun.  Sol Invictus is an amalgamation of trans-cultural solar deities including Mithras, and Apollo. Constantine recognized Jesus' status in that pantheon almost immediately.  Many of the Stories of his life and activities are symbolic of celestial events.




In modern times, ancient solar symbols are plentiful in Christianity .

 It is no mistake that when The Lady of Fatima  gave a sign to the masses she chose the Sun. {Sun Dance}

When Constantine saw his Vision of "the cross superimposed on the sun". Was he seeing the Son superimposed on the Sun or The Son superimposed on the Sun

Heaven and Hell

The worshippers of Mithras held strong beliefs in a celestial heaven and an infernal hell. They believed that the benevolent powers of the God would sympathize with their suffering and grant them the final justice of immortality and eternal salvation in the world to come. They looked forward to a final day of judgment in which the dead would resurrect, and to a final conflict that would destroy the existing order of all things to bring about the triumph of light over darkness.  There is basically very little difference between the beliefs of the two systems, in respect to their concepts of Heaven, Hell and purgatory. Many of the Catholic and Orthodox beliefs, and legends that do not arise out of the Bible or Apocrypha have their roots in Mithraism and related Pagan belief systems.

The Apostles meet a Mithraist ?

In Mark 9:38 John said to Jesus "Teacher,.....we saw a man driving out demons in your name and we told him to stop, because he was not one of us."   Who was this mystery man driving out Demons in the name of Jesus Christ ? He was not one of the Apostles, for they did not know him, and he is never mentioned in the Bible again, or if he was Paul and Genre censored it. This man driving out demons in The name of Jesus Christ was believed to be a follower of Tammuz or Mithra also known as Adonis OR a follower of an even more ancient religion from further East. He was invoking the name of Jesus Christ - as the Apostles understood it.   

How is this possible ??? The name of Jesus was not yet known , there was no Christian Church yet, except for Jesus and the Twelve apostles - so how could a stranger be casting out Demons in the name of Jesus ? Is this passage a clue left by Mark in his Gospel, a clue missed by the Early Censors of Jesus ?
Jesus did not find this offensive as his reply to John was "Do not stop him," Jesus said, "for whoever is not against you is for you."  This story is also related in Luke 9:40-50 and Mark 9: 37-39


"He who will not eat of my body and drink of my blood, so that he will be made on with me and I with him, the same shall not know salvation." An inscription to Mithras which parallels John 6:53-54.

The Historical Jesus and the Mythical Christ: Separating Fact from Fiction




Syncretism is the attempt to reconcile disparate, even opposing, beliefs and to meld practices of various schools of thought. It is especially associated with the attempt to merge and analogize several originally discrete traditions, especially in the theology and mythology of religion, and thus assert an underlying unity.
