Zeus Nephilim MythologyPart of our profiles on the origins of false gods.  The Twelve Olympians are codified in our history and still have great influence in our culture today!

Family of Zeus

Parents: Zeus was the last child of the Titans Cronus and Rhea.
Siblings: Zeus had five older siblings. Two brothers (PoseidonHades), and three sisters (HestiaHeraDemeter).
Wife: Zeus married his own sister Hera, the goddess of marriage and monogamy, but was giving her plenty of reasons to be jealous, since Zeus was renowned of his numerous love affairs. As a result, Zeus fathered plenty of children.

Role and Responsibilities

Zeus had his golden throne on the highest summit of Mount Olympus and was respected and awed by all Gods and mortals. All the kings boasted that they descended from Zeus.
Zeus was the “Lord of Justice”, punishing anyone who lied or broke an oath, but was fair and always striving to keep a balance of all things.

Greek Gods: ZEUS

Furthermore, Zeus was responsible for the weather and was shaping it according to his temper. When in high spirits, Zeus was blessing the world with fine weather; in case of bad mood, however, he would throw rain, winds, lightnings and thunderbolts to cause disaster to the mortals.

But even Zeus’ powers had their limits, for, however powerful as he was, he had neither the right nor the ability to intervene in the decisions of the Fates.

The Personality of Zeus

Zeus was carefree and loved to laugh out loud[1]. He possessed the perfect knowledge and was just, merciful and prudent. However, he was rather unpredictable, since no one could guess the decisions he would make.

Appearance of Zeus

Zeus was strong and imposing, with long, oftentimes curly hair.

Symbols of Zeus

The symbols of Zeus were the scepter, the throne and the thunderbolt, which was as a gift from the Cyclopes because he liberated them. Zeus’ tree was the oak tree and his sacred animal was the eagle.  Article Source

 

Biblical Commentary on Zeus:

Who is Nimrod?

(Gen 10:8-12 NIV)  Cush was the father of Nimrod, who grew to be a mighty warrior on the earth. {9} He was a mighty hunter before the LORD; that is why it is said, “Like Nimrod, a mighty hunter before the LORD.” {10} The first centers of his kingdom were Babylon, Erech, Akkad and Calneh, in Shinar. {11} From that land he went to Assyria, where he built Nineveh, Rehoboth Ir, Calah {12} and Resen, which is between Nineveh and Calah; that is the great city.

Nimrod was slain by Shem, Noah’s son, because of his great wickedness and desire to make himself a god. His wife Beltis, also known as Semiramis, eager to claim Nimrod’s kingdom proclaimed that Nimrod had ascended to heaven and is now the sun god. Nimrod, now the Babylonian sun god, then impregnated her with the rays of the sun and she gave an “immaculate” birth to Tammuz.

Tammuz, the reborn sun god…Mother God Cult

Tammuz, the son of Semiramis and Nimrod, the sun god, was born on the Winter Solstice, which on the ancient pagan calendar is December 25th. This day was celebrated as the day Nimrod was reborn as Tammuz. It is also a date common among pagan religions.

Other gods that share Tammuz birthday, December 25th:

      1. Ra, the Egyptian sun god
      2. Zeus, the Greek sun god

·       In 168 B.C.E., on December 25th, Zeus’ birthday, Antiochus Epiphanes IV set up in the Jerusalem Temple a statue of Zeus, the Greek sun god, upon the altar, defiling it.

Mithras, the Roman sun god

·       Romans hung Jewish patriots (zealots) on a Mithras cross after the Jews rose up against Rome in 70 A.D.

Tammuz, the reborn sun god Nimrod, when he was 40 years old, was gored to death by a wild boar during a hunting accident. In honor of the slain Tammuz, 40 days of weeping were given each year, a day for each year of his life. This ritual is now called, “LENT”.
