One similar aspect both scriptures share is the idea that God is the creator of earth and the universe, as clearly stated in Genesis as “God created the Heaven and Earth…” (Genesis 1:1) and in The Bhagavad Gita as “...the whole cosmic order is under me…”(Gita 9.8). Both scriptures contain creation myths which tell a story of how the universe was created. However, the contact between God and human is different among the two. In The Bhagavad Gita God communicates directly with Arjuna in a conversational/friendly manner to get the message across.

While Asclepios holds his staff, which is his typical attribute, Christ is

Marduk, as king among the Gods, he did what kings did on earth; he went forth and battled his enemies.
