Mythology of Ancient Greece. By Fabian Massa.

Translated from Spanish to English with Google translator. A brief study conducted jointly by Adrian Pablos & Fabian Massa.
Greek mythology includes the myths  and legends  of the ancient Greeks. In these stories, which deal with:
Their gods, demigods and heroes Myths about the nature of the world
The origins and significance of their own cult and ritual practices.
Therefore, mythology formed the religion of ancient Greece. Modern researchers are turning to the myths and study them in an attempt to shed light on the religious and political institutions of that culture and civilization, as well as to better understand the nature of their own creation myths
Having established in Chapter XXI a geographical and temporal cultures Japhethites founded by tribes who came from Anatolia to conquer the Mediterranean and Europe, we can proceed to consider the ancient Greek worldview.
One of the sources of the myths is The Theogony  Hesiod  which contains a version of the origin of the cosmos and the offspring of the gods of Greek mythology. (Ol VII Century VIII a.) Hesiod’s work is built from preexisting poetic genres that were part of the oral tradition in Greece: cosmogonies , theogonies , genealogies  and myths of succession .
Hesiod’s Theogony says : [Second and third generation of gods. End of the myth of succession. (V. 211-885)]
“After Chaos, arose Gaea” the broad-chested “, the eternal foundation of the gods of Olympus. From his own being, ‘without saying the pleasant trade  “brought to Uranus, the starry sky, her equal, to cover her, the hills, and also Pontus, the fruitless deep of the sea. But after this, account Hesiod, Gaia lay with her son Uranus and father of the Titans Ocean, Ceo, Krios, Hyperion and Iapetus, and Titanesses Tea, Rhea, Themis, Mnemosyne, Phoebe of the golden crown and lovely Tethys. “After them was born Cronos the wily, youngest and terrible of her children, and he hated his lusty father. ‘”
Let’s read a little more in depth verse by verse:
After Chaos: Chaos is, according to this mythology, the primordial state of the universe, before any divine or human existence. COMPARISON WITH GEN.
Arose Gaea “the broad-chested”, the eternal foundation of the gods of Olympus: It came, ie by motu proprio  without the intervention of our Lord, as in other mythologies, the first thing is to remove God of the scene.
From his own being, “without saying the pleasant trade”: That is, without the pleasant intercourse, another case involving self-generation without anyone else.
Brought to Uranus: That is what gave birth.
The starry sky, her equal, to cover her and the hills are given human form created things (Anthropomorphism)  For the cover, read to take it sexually. The same case of “incest among gods” of mythologies studied so far, which is systematically repeated also in their societies. The same is true of Nut (Sky Dome) covering Geb (Earth) in Egyptian mythology or as the sky covers An Ki (Earth) in Babylonian mythology. In these three cases “cover” is equivalent to taking sexually. Biblically is correlative:
”… And darkness was upon the face of the deep …” Genesis 1.2 Here was upon the face of the deep is equivalent to cover – wrap.
And also Pontus, the fruitless deep of the sea. Genesis 1.2 primeval waters covered the entire earth, which was obviously unsuccessful: No fruit (Vana?)
But after that, Hesiod account: Gea lay with her son Uranus and father of the Titans Ocean, Ceo, Krios, Hyperion and Iapetus, and Titanesses Tea, Rhea, Themis, Mnemosyne, Phoebe of the golden crown and lovely Tethys. “After them was born Cronos the wily, youngest and terrible of her children, and he hated his lusty father.”
Here we can see how Gaea (Earth) and Uranus (Heaven) were born when they are really gods created things or beings created features:
Ocean: Literally “ocean”, referred to the “World Ocean”, which the Greeks and Romans thought it was a huge river that surrounded the then known world.
Ceo: was the Titan of intelligence
Krios: A Titan without a specific role
Hyperion: Hyperion is often considered the god of observation
Iapetus Given the similarity of names and their myths, it is considered that Iapetus could be Japheth, son of Noah. The Indo-European linguistics researchers dispute this vehemently equalization. According to Robert Graves :
“The identification of Atlantis with Fog explain why Atlas is sometimes described as the son of Iapetus and sometimes as the son of Poseidon, the patron of Greek sailors. Noah is Decalion (who survived the flood) and even in Greek myth as Iapetus appears Decalion grandfather, this could mean simply that he was the eponymous ancestor  of the tribe who led Greece Mesopotamian flood legend ( legend rather than the Atlantic ). The Sibylline Oracles Iapetus make one of three children of Gaia and Uranus, along with Cronus and Titan, each receiving one third of the Earth. Legends like in the Judeo-Christian writings attributed this division into thirds to the three sons of Noah, Ham, Shem and Japheth. “
This would then Iapetus Japheth (a man of flesh deified by tradition) and in turn their descendants, ancestor of all Indo-Europeans. It is a tradition in ancient cultures to link the genealogies of their patriarchs to their divinities.
Hesiod’s Theogony is telling the “story of the gods” that summarizing it takes this form:
Gaia and Uranus had a numerous progeny: Ocean, Ceo, Krios, Hyperion, Iapetus, Tea, Rhea, Themis, Mnemosyne, Phoebe, Tethys, and Cronus.
Cronus castrated Uranus and takes power by marrying his sister Rhea , of this union are born Demeter, Hades, Hera, Hestia, Poseidon and Zeus. Zeus rebelled against Kronos and Queen instead.
Cronus castrated Uranus This is a symbolism: being the god of time Chronos and Celeste vault Uranus, castration is a cut or opening: That is, with the passage of time the vault was opened and led to the appearance of the atmosphere . This is neither more nor less than a distortion of:
Genesis 1. RV95
6 And God said, “Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.” 7 And God made the firmament divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament. And it was so. 8 God called the expanse “sky.” And the evening and the morning were the second day.
After the overthrow of the Titans the new pantheon  of gods and goddesses was confirmed. The main Greek gods were the Olympians, residing atop Mount Olympus  under the eye of Zeus. That is, the god Zeus had dominion over territory is what is called a territorial authority. The apostle Paul explains this in his letter to the Ephesians:
RV 60 Eph. 6.12
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Paul teaches us that demonic armies are organized and have, as any military force, different levels of hierarchy. There are powers that rule over a region. In Matthew 8.28, when Jesus and the disciples arrive at Gadara, the demonic legions ruled the region and were embodied in the “Possessed Gadarenes”, go out to meet them. When Jesus cast out of man, these evil spirits beg him to not take in that region, to which Jesus had access because they assigned the territory.
Just to give another example, in the Book of Daniel (10.13) the angel that brings the vision to Daniel, was delayed because “The Prince (read spiritual power) of Persia made him strength.”
The Greeks considered the father of the gods Zeus and the mortal, being the god of the sky, rain, who wielded the terrible thunderbolt as a weapon.
So says the Word:
RV60 1 Co. 8: 5 For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as there are many gods and many lords),
6 for us, however, there is only one God, the Father, of whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and we by him.
Still made every four years the Olympic Games in honor of Zeus and his court. In the XXVIII edition of the Summer Olympic Games  which had as headquarters to the city of Athens, from August 13 to August 29, 2004. For 17 days we celebrated the biggest sporting events and expensive history, bringing together delegates from 201 countries and more than 10 000 athletes (6296 men and 4329 women).
The Greek gods and their attraction to the daughters of men.
According to Greek mythology, Zeus, the highest authority on Mount Olympus territorial, have “taken them wives of all which they chose” as it reads Genesis 6.2 (Incubus). According to Greek mythology, in the early days (Prediluvianos) gods and men were linked romantically (meaning sexually) in concrete, which would no longer after the Flood.
Such stories of sex between a god and a beautiful woman or the rape of a woman by a god (a clear parallel between “the sons of God took wives of the daughters of men in Genesis 6) were compiled by Ovid  in his book “The Metamorphosis”.
The children of these unions are the “Heroes” but usually these stories do not have happy endings . A clear example is the case of Heracles.
The Story of Heracles – Hercules.
Hercules is perhaps the “Hero” of the world par excellence, a member of the pantheon of Greek mythology. Besides comics, television series and Hollywood adventure films contributed to its popularity. Hercules is the name given by the Romans to Heracles, who could have been a real historical personage, ruler of the city of Tiryns around 1200. C.
Wikipedia says: The legend has it that Heracles was born in Thebes, north of Athens city, where they lived Alcmene and Amphitryon. It also has the legend that Zeus reached 3 times the night he was conceived Heracles. There was a total solar eclipse at noon on February 19, 1286 BC thus turning night into three. All occurred on the 10:52 UTC as calculated by NASA. This would place the birth of Heracles in early November of the same year. Since there was a historical figure who ruled Tiryns (Argos) called Heracles while Eurystheus ruled the city of Mycenae , and since at that time was Professor Lino Heracles can be concluded that setting the date Lino teaching Heracles in 1264 ad C (given by St. Jerome  in his Chronicon) death and deification of Heracles happened around 1226 ad C.
What happened at that time in the Holy Land with the People of God:
The Israelites had been introduced by God in Canaan in 1406 BC (Book of Joshua 1). And since the 1209. C. to 1169 B.C. God’s People was ruled by Deborah (Judges 4 and 5).
God says, referring to the princes and rulers:
5 For all the gods of the nations are idols, but Yahweh made the heavens.
Heracles  was, according to Pausanias , the last child fathered with mortal women Zeus in Greece. There are many stories about his life, the most famous being The Twelve Labours of Heracles. Interestingly, the priests of the temple of Heracles wearing female clothes.
In Genesis 6.1 and 2 we can see how the angels “which kept not their dignity” (Jude explains 1.6) having fallen into spiritual vices against nature, would have taken corporeal form and had sex with the daughters of men. From these relationships Giants were born (Gen. 6.4) Note that Greek mythology tells of Alcmene, mother of Heracles:
Wikipedia: In Greek mythology Alcmene Alcmene (Ancient Greek, “power of the moon ‘) was a mortal woman, daughter of King Electrion of Mycenae and wife of Amphitryon. Heracles was the mother of Zeus, whom Zeus cheating themselves the appearance of her husband during his absence.
Recodemos for those who understand that the “sons of God were fallen angels (Genesis 6), the children resulting from the union of the Grigori and Nephilim were women, men with unusual abilities.
Heracles was dedicated to Hera, “consort” of Zeus. In Greek mythology, Zeus is the leader of the Olympian gods, ruler of Mt. Olympus . From the biblical perspective, Zeus is a territorial demon, a ruler “Ruler” of the other demons, a Governor of Darkness based on Mount Olympus.
Heracles had serious behavioral problems, as we can see:
Adultery: Aca Larentia was a lover of Hercules. Tarutius was married to a rich merchant. In another version, was the wife of Faustulus.
Filicidal: In the course of his life, Heracles married three times. His first marriage was to Megara, whose children he murdered in a fit of madness. His second wife was Omphale, the Lydian queen or princess  who was sold into slavery. His third marriage was to Deianira.
Homosexual and transvestite: In his book Sex, historian Plutarch  states:
“Heracles’ male lovers were so numerous that it was impossible to count them. Some of them were: Abdero; Admetus; Adonis; Corito; Elacatas; Euphemus, Philoctetes and many more, too numerous to list. “[Wikipedia ]. Plutarch in his time male partners down to his tomb in Thebes to swear allegiance to him and each other.
For the Greeks is Heracles, Hercules to the Romans. Etruscan equivalent  was Hercle, a son of Tinia and Uni, and Egyptian equivalent was Herishef. Through Buddhist Greco , the symbolism was transmitted heráclida the Far East. An example of this has come to modern times in the Nio guardian deities who are against Japanese Buddhist temples.
MYTHOLOGY AND COSMOGONY.
Each culture has its own mythology, so develop their cosmogony . The best known in our culture is Greek mythology. While each culture has its own mythology, broadly speaking, the philosophical principles are similar. “Myths of origin” or “creation myths” represent an attempt to understand the universe in human terms and explain the origin of the world.
Mythology was at the heart of everyday life in ancient Greece. You need to understand that what we see in their culture as “mythology” they lived as “Religion” . The Greeks regarded mythology a part of its history. They used myth to explain natural phenomena, cultural, traditional enmities and friendships. It was a source of pride to be able to follow the leaders’ own descent from a mythological hero or a god.
Most gods were associated with specific aspects of life. For example, Aphrodite was the goddess of love and beauty, Ares was the god of war, Hades the dead, and Athena the goddess of wisdom and courage.
Stories of supernatural beings in other cultures: “The Incubus and Succubus”
The purpose of this section is not to indoctrinate on mythology or demonology, but give basic information to understand how these spiritual realms. And as the facts show Genesis 6.1 to 4 similarly repeated elsewhere. From this point of view, the “Mythology” would be reading that made this reality and how those cultures “went down” in the format of “myths”, in order to understand them.
These are the generic names given to these types of demons, depending on your sexual orientation:
Incubus is a male demon victims seeking women to have sex with them.
Succubus is the female counterpart, usually seeking male victims. They are less frequent.
Generally, in most cases are Incubi. In a few cases, a female divinity (female demon, Succubus) is paired with a mortal man, as in the case of Aphrodite with Anchises to Aeneas. (Virgil’s Aeneid).
Most important Cults Proto – Greek
During the period Old is worshiped gods “creators” (Gaia, Uranus) and the Titans (Ocean, Ceo, Krios, Hyperion, Iapetus, Tea, Rhea, Themis, Mnemosyne, Phoebe, Tethys and Cronus.) And also the Olympian gods.
During the period of Classical Greece (V century to 380 BC) the worship of ancient gods weakened, strengthened instead worship the Olympian gods  under the command of Zeus  and his consort Hera. For this reason the cult during the Classic Period Gea turned in favor of other Olympic and goddesses Hera, Demeter, Artemis, (twin and wife of Apollo), and Athena (These goddesses were divided between whether the attributes of Gaia). This period is beyond the scope of this study.
Worship the goddess Mother Earth, Gaia
Gea or Gaia is the goddess of the ancient Greek pantheon personifying the Earth.
Wikipedia says : “Some sources, such as anthropologists James Melloart, marijas Gimbutas and Barbara Walker, claim that Gaia as Mother Earth is an evolution of the Great Goddess Mother of the pre-Indo-European , a goddess of life and generous but dreadful death, who had been worshiped since the Neolithic in the Middle East, Anatolia and the area of influence of the Aegean culture. “
Titans (Titans: male, and Titanesses: female) were a race of powerful gods who ruled during the legendary Golden Age: a time in the beginnings of Humanity which was perceived as an ideal state or utopia, when mankind was pure and immortal . Here you can score two parallels:
The Titans and the Grigori of Genesis 6
The Golden Age with perfect humanity before the “Fall of Man” in Genesis 3.
The Titans were twelve were related to various key concepts, some of which are simply deducted from their names: ocean and fruitful earth, sun and moon, memory and natural law. The twelve first-generation Titans were led by the youngest, Cronus, who overthrew his father, Uranus (‘Heaven’), after consulting with the mother, Gaia (‘Earth’).
“Later the Titans  spawned a second generation, the children of Hyperion (helios – Sun) Eos (Dawn) and Selene (the Moon), Ceo daughters and sons of Iapetus: Prometheus, Epimetheus, Atlas and Menecio “.
Zeus then led the Olympian gods called a war against the Titans, who were defeated and imprisoned in Tartarus, the deepest region of the Underworld.
Biblically there were two uprisings angelic with which you can set a “parallelism”:
The rebellion of Satan, explained in Ezekiel 19 and Isaiah 28.11 to 14.12 to 23, with reference in Revelation 12. All these passages speak of Satan’s rebellion, which was before humanity, that is, before the 6th Day  of Creation, and ended with the defeat of the rebel angel by the army of Heaven. Satan is thrown to earth found no more room for him in Heaven (Revelation 12). In Greek myth however, the revolt against Uranus Cronus is successful, to the point that the decision to Gaia (the Earth).
The revolt of the Grigori of Genesis 6, which, as Jude 6: “And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved under darkness in everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day “. The expression “eternal chains and dark” seems a good description of “Tartarus” where Zeus had imprisoned the rebels Titans.
Pontus (Pontos Gr, ‘sea’) was an ancient sea god preolímpico, son of Gaia, the Earth, and brother of Uranus.
Cronus was the youngest Titan. Overthrew Uranus and reigned in his stead. Cronus knew he was destined to be overthrown by one of his own sons, as he had defeated his father. Therefore, each time a child was born of his wife Rhea, devoured. When I was born the sixth child, Zeus, Rhea tricked Cronus giving him a stone instead of Zeus. When Zeus was higher, rebelled against his father and freed his siblings he was in the belly of Uranus.
You can establish a connection between Cronos (who devoured his children) and the Canaanite god Moloch and Chemosh god (worshiped by the Moabites and the Ammonites) which were preferred sacrifice newborn babies. The rite was common among Middle Eastern peoples, such as: The Phoenicians, the Israelites , and the Punic. Babies were sacrificed by cremation (Pass the children through the fire).
Uranus was a primordial god and represented the Celestial Vault. There were forms of worship. Moreover, archeology and mythography  have revealed that the source of Greek mythology (and also Egyptian, Canaanite, the Indus Valley) is the Babylonian mythology.
For example, the Greek god Adonis, symbolizing death and the annual renewal of vegetation and the nature of which was tied to the calendar. A native of Phoenicia, the Adonis cult spread to all countries of the Mediterranean with several modifications, but its origin is in the Semitic Tammuz, which was a pastoral divinity and fertility of Babylon was known as Baal in Canaan.
Aphrodite: Much of the iconography  of Aphrodite, who in Greek mythology, is the goddess of love, lust, beauty, prostitution and reproduction (Love in the erotic sense ). Its counterpart is Astarte Canaanite, Roman is the diosaVenus, the Sumerian Inanna. The origin of these is the Babylonian goddess Ishtar. The worship of these goddesses have in common sodomites.
Ishtar also arise also Turan Etruscan mythology and has parallels to Indo-European goddess of the dawn, such as Ushas or Aurora.
The goddess Eos: In Greek mythology, Eos “The rosy fingers of”, as he called Homer, is the deity of an enchanting beauty that flies through the sky to herald the arrival of the sun (then would become Aurora in Roman mythology ). In the mythology of the Indus Valley (aria) would give the same goddess deUshás name.
After the dispersion of Babel, a branch of the tribes Japhethites occupy Anatolia (Current Turkey). From there it took to colonize the coasts and islands of the Aegean Sea in the 7th millennium BC, giving birth to a number of civilizations that alternated in the domain of the entire region. They had a cultural basis and a common origin (Japheth), language, mythology, agricultural knowledge, seafaring tradition, the same technology to build their cities and their ships.
It is clear that the worldview of the Ancient Greeks (like the views and Sumerian, Semitic-Babylonian, Canaanite and Egyptian) is a “free version” of the story that comes to us through Genesis I.
In this chapter we have studied how these people basically worshiped the same gods and goddesses, with slight variations, which is a further indication of a common origin for all.
In this mythology repeats the myth of spiritual beings who take women that beget children out of the ordinary, to the point that his fame has spread to this day.

En Mateo 25.1-13, Jesús utiliza una parábola para explicar quienes entrarán al Reino de los Cielos. Una parábola es una historia ficticia con un fin educativo, pensada sobre la base de hechos posibles de la vida cotidiana y por esa razón eran historias que todos podían comprender. Debido que eran relatos de hechos que pasaban en la vida real, su interpretación debe ser textual.
El texto es muy conocido, el primer discurso de Pedro ocupa todo Hechos 2. Se podría hacer un esquema del capítulo dividiéndolo en tres partes: 1. La llenura del Espíritu Santo de los 120 discípulos del “aposento alto”: La multitud que visitaba Jerusalén en Pentecostés escuchó a los discípulos hablar de “Las Maravillas de Dios” en su lengua materna. Hechos 2.1 a 13. 2. La explicación que Pedro da sobre el milagro de Pentecostés: Pedro le explica al pueblo lo sucedido y el porqué de la situación.
