A myth submitted to the site by Corey F

Texas, USA

People usually wonder how two people who’ve done amazing things are alike and different.Zeus and Noah have done amazing things to help. They may be considered heroes, but people how different can two legends be. Zeus and Noah may both be saviors; however, they’re different in their personalities.

Zeus and Noah have both saved a society of some sort from certain doom. Zeus saved his siblings from Cronous.”When Zeus had grown into a young man he returned to his fathers domain, and with the help of Gaia, compelled Cronus to regurgitate the five children he had previously swallowed (in some versions Zeus received help from Metis who gave Cronus an emetic potion, which made him vomit up Zeus' brothers and sisters).”(Leadbetter Zeus). He freed his siblings from his father’s insides. Noah, on the other hand, saved a large group of animals from certain death. The animals and people of the world by a flood created by God.”You are to bring into the ark two of all living creatures, male and female, to keep them alive with you.”(Genesis 6:19).Noah saved the animals because God commanded him to. Zeus and Noah are heroes even though they had different reasons for their help. They both went out of their way to do a heroic act in order to help. In conclusion, Zeus and Noah are both saviors.

They both created something to help them do kind acts. Zeus created a poison so that his father would vomit his brothers and sisters.”When Zeus had grown into a young man he returned to his fathers domain, and with the help of Gaia, compelled Cronus to regurgitate the five children he had previously swallowed (in some versions Zeus received help from Metis who gave Cronus an emetic potion, which made him vomit up Zeus' brothers and sisters)”(Leadbetter Zeus). Zeus created something in order to retrieve help from his brothers and sisters in the soon to be revolution. Noah created an ark.”14 So make yourself an ark of cypress[c] wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out. 15 This is how you are to build it: The ark is to be three hundred cubits long, fifty cubits wide and thirty cubits high. 16 Make a roof for it, leaving below the roof an opening one cubit high all around. Put a door in the side of the ark and make lower, middle and upper decks.”(Genesis 6:14-16) The ark’s job was to keep a large number of creatures afloat above an enormous body of water to keep them from possible drowning. Noah saved his family and a lot of animals from dying from God’s unmatchable wrath. Noah became famous for creating the ark that saved the animals from the world’s end. In conclusion, Zeus and Noah both creators of things that save.

Zeus is a cheater while Noah is a faithful husband. Zeus had cheated on Hera with numerous women.”Zeus had numerous liaisons with both goddesses and mortals.”(Leadbetter Zeus) This results in Zeus becoming the father of a lot of demigods. Zeus goes to very desperate measures into very drastic measures just to cheat on his wife. Noah is loyal husband and a great father of two sons. Noah’s righteousness is why he was chosen to save the animals from the flood.”Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God.10 Noah had three sons: Shem, Ham and Japheth.”(Genesis 6:9-10). He even saved his wife and kids even though it was optional to save them. Noah is a righteous soul whose loyalty made a hero. In conclusion, Zeus and Noah are different because of their love lives.

Zeus is the ruler of Olympus a while Noah is a regular old man.”He was the supreme ruler of Mount Olympus and of the Pantheon of gods who resided there.”(Leadbetter Zeus) Being the supreme ruler he upheld law, justice and morals, and this made him the spiritual leader of both gods and men.” Zeus became ruler of Olympus. Noah is a simple person who is righteous of God. He just did what God commanded and became a animal-saving-hero for it.” Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.”(Genesis 6:8). Noah is just a loyal follower of God. A mere mortal who was blessed to live 500 years old. He just an old, God-fearing, man who became a savior for his obedience. In conclusion, Zeus and Noah are different because of their abilities.

Zeus is a savior of humanity while Noah is a savior to animals. Zeus, however, is a powerful god who makes a hobby of cheating on his wife. Noah is a wise, obedient, and old man who is a faithful husband and a good father. Zeus and Noah are both heroes, but how they act on a personal level is almost opposite.
