What means the Glory of Hera?

Is Zeus and Jesus the same?

Sorry, Jesus, but ancient Greek myths inspired the writing of the Old and New Testament of the Bible. The Christian religion is based on a Bible made up of an Old Testament and New Testament. These two Testaments are also made up of many other books (a few pages) filled with stories, philosophies, and instructions.
