Similarities between Sargon of Akkad and Jesus of Nazareth and others

There are many legends surrounding the birth and upbringing of Sargon, though they probably have varying degrees of truth. When the events from the legends are combined, we see that Sargon’s rise to emperor was a huge accomplishment. While the identity of his father is not clearly known, the legend states that his mother was a temple priestess. Giving birth to him in secret and setting him in a basket to float, she abandoned him to the Euphrates river. Akki, a gardener, rescued him from the river and raised him. After working as a gardener for Akki, Sargon rose to the position of cup-bearer to Ur-Zababa, the king of Kish.

Both a similarity to Moses being sent down the river and many miracle births in the bible. Not just Jesus.

One legend tells how Ur-Zababa rose to power, appointed Sargon as cup-bearer, and then attempted to murder him. An and Enlil, Sumerian gods, decided to oppose the reign of Ur-Zababa and to remove his wealth from him. Then, fearful because of a dream that the goddess Inanna would give Sargon his kingdom, Ur-Zababa attempted to murder him. When this attempt failed, Ur-Zababa sent Sargon with a note to Lugalzagesi, king of Uruk, containing instructions to kill Sargon. Here the legend stops-but history continues. Instead of being killed by Lugalzagesi, Sargon later made war against Lugalzagesi’s empire, and became emperor in his place.

Ur-Zababa is Pontius Pilate who was the judge at Jesus trial. Sending him to his Herod Antipas. With the Goddess Inanna being a huge part in the event and the dream of the king representing Pontius Pilate's wife's dream of Jesus.

Not just the sorties of their lives are similar. But the pictures look identical.

What do you guys think of this? is the most beloved person in history nothing more that a Babylonia? Who ruled in a country we're having a war with.

I see huge similarities with the Sargon story and Moses. Not so much though, with Jesus and his story. Plus the Sargon story is closer in the timeline to Moses--and before Jesus by hundreds of years.

You probably don't know much about the virgin birth and the trial of Jesus. If this isn't prof that Jesus and many others with similarities are influenced from Sargon of Akkad life. Then I don't know what is. Maybe it's just an coincidence about it. Here's even more similar religious figures.

The Jesus myth (proper usage, not denial of existence) has been played out numerous times in history. All the way from virgin birth, died and reborn, healing the sick, etc - repeat, repeat, repeat and sell it to the people for power.

perhaps there are differences in the 'Sargon' as protype for a later Jesus myth.

but that is not the real cornerstone of your research.

What is ... Is the seemingly synchronized central theme change by diverse cultures, into putting the god-head in a male body,

for untold millenia, the goddess creator, giver-of-life & sustinence was the universal epitome of humanities 'higher-power'

i cannot conjecture why the universal change from a feminine goddess
to the masculine god took place ---

Perhaps this sea-change in universal culture
was when the mythical/methaphorical Adam-Eve got kicked out of the Garden?
