    Fascinating similarity between Krishna and Jesus

    I was reading this news report on an archaeologist discovering King Herod's tomb and decided to find out more about King Herod.

    It turns out that he is most remembered notorious for ordering the killing of every single male child under two years of age in Bethlehem after he was told that the King of Jews would be born there. Joseph and Mary, parents of Jesus (who was considered to be born as the King of Jews) fled to Egypt to escape persecution.

    The first thing this reminded me of was Kamsa's actions after the prophecy that the 8th child of Vasudeva and Devaki would kill him. He killed the first six children born to Vasudeva & Devaki before Balarama was transported into Rohini's womb and Vasudeva took Krishna to Vrindavan to escape Kamsa's fury.

    The other similarity is that Jesus is known as the Good Shepherd but Krishna is never referreed to as the Good Cowherd!
