Jesus vs Krishna

Jesus and Krishna share many things in common

Some Hindus claim the Bible copied from the Bhagavad Gita, Hindu Scripture. Therefore by worshipping Jesus, Christians are actually worshipping Krishna, the Hindu God.

Most religious liberals accept that elements of Krishna were incorporated into Jesus' life. There are explored below:

Krishna Jesus
Hinduism Christianity
Bhagavad-Gita

Hindus believe that Krishna was the eighth "avatar" or incarnation of the god Vishnu - one of the Hindu deities in the Hindu trinity.

Hindu scriptures state that Krishna "appeared in all the fullness of his power and glory."
'Good News' Gospel

Christians consider Jesus to be the Messiah (Christ) and believe that through his death and resurrection, humans can be reconciled to God and thereby are offered salvation and the promise of eternal life.
Birth
900-1200 BC (Aug)

Miraculously conceived and born of the Virgin Devaki ("Divine One") as a divine incarnation.

Indian word Krishta which was the way they pronounce the name of Krishna.

Jesus' birth was attended by three wise men who visited Jesus after his birth, bearing gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh
Family
Krishna was born while his foster-father Nanda was in the city to pay his tax to the king. He was born at a time when his family had to travel to pay the yearly tax Jesus was born while his human father, Joseph, was in the city to be enumerated in a census, so that all the world could be taxed
Mother
Maia

The virginal state of Devaki is also a matter of debate. One tradition states that Krishna was her eighth child. Another states that it was a virgin birth.

"In the context of myth and religion, the virgin birth is applied to any miraculous conception and birth. In this sense, whether the mother is technically a virgin is of secondary importance to the fact that she conceives and gives birth by some means other than the ordinary....the divine Vishnu himself descended into the womb of Devaki and was born as her son Krishna."
Mother
Miriam (Mary)

The virginal state of Mary when she conceived Jesus is a matter of debate.

Paul and the author(s) of the Gospel of John appear to directly rejected the virgin birth concept.

The author of the Gospel of Mark appears to have been unaware of it.

The authors of Matthew and Luke accept the virgin birth narrative. Christians today are divided over the matter.

Angels
Krishna's father was warned by a heavenly voice to flee the tyrant who sought the death of Krishna. When the tyrant failed, he decreed all the infants be put to death.

Angels warned Krishna's parents of the tyrants plans and so they remained in Mathura, India where baby Krishna was born
Angels
King Herod was a cruel, power-hungry ruler who destroyed anyone he feared was trying to topple him from his throne. Fearing baby Jesus would grow to challange his authority, he tried to have Jesus killed.

Angels warned Jesus' parents of Herods plans. Mary and Joseph stayed in Muturea, Egypt (according to the Gospel of Infancy).

The Bible states that Jesus fled to Egypt afterwards to escape from King Herod

Author Jacolliot on Bagaveda-Gita

"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"
