I've been thinking about the same paradox these days. Wanted to share several misc. tid bits. Sorry if it is long, but I think those that are meant to find it will like it enough and it will feel like a condensed booklet.
Certain logos and shields have the word "IHS" (pronounced yes), which refers to the sun (or son, or el sol/soul for latin). When we nod to say yes, we look up and down, as if to watch the sun rise and fall.
In latin, el is used for male words. Similar, (e)love and (e)light are the advertised traits of the (e)lord. In Hebrew belief, the sun is Elohim (el and him being male). Also, "he" is prefix for Helios, the mythological sun god. Words like "hot" are strikingly similar to heart, and heart being similar to hearth, a word now shortened to earth. So we know that light is the male ion, or yang; and matter being the opposite (cold and contracting) yin. Matter altered to its original form 'mater' has a similarity to 'mother', referring to the yin force. Some of these seem irrelevant but they are solar system related and have cosmological hints embedded. Positive words referring to the sun's his-star-y: good, help, yes, plea or please (related to pleiadian sisters, coming later), soon, ease, and many more are ancient sounds refitted to continue the memory of our origin. Memory being a variation on the muse named Mneme.
More about Jesus. Let's do walking on water. When we look at the "horizon", we see the egyptian sun god Horus "rising" (or Ra-sing) from the underworld, or from underwater, hovering over the sea. Horus is enemies with Set, who is the egyptian god of darkness (when the sun sets). Horus, Osiris, and Set are believed to be one person, at different times of the day. Isis, sister and wife of Osiris and seen by some as "Mary", resurrected him after Set killed Osiris. This resurrection is common to Jesus, and the phoenix rising after 3 days of darkness. Interestingly, Horus, the one actually rising is a falcon. And of course, Horus is strikingly familiar to "hours", as we use the sun to count hours. And the moon, which circles a smaller orbit, for minutes. Right before the sun enters winter, when days are darker and colder for longer hours, it is wedged between Sagittarius, and Scorpio, both seeming to jab the sun with their pointed weapons and venom. This is called by ancient people as "The Last Supper" because the winter is about to come full force, and they must gather what food they have and wait for the sun to Spring back. The sun rules and is most bright in the Summer or soma, a word referring to when an emotional or non-physical force manifests into the physical world into full density (the BODY part in the trinity body/mind/spirit--more detail in a bit). This is why we see the sun as yellow/orange/green tints, it is within our perceptual octave or dimensional range that we're made of (think of traffic light, cones, and sign colors). Yellow is the chakra in our stomach, and stands for silent strength. The Buddha(body) has a large stomach and is radiant (Ray-dia-nt or Ra and dia, both sun concepts) with happiness and light. Stomach, or stem-ach, is the stem of the tree of life, the bodhi tree (will revisit this soon).
A few more Jesus things. Crucifix may mean the crossing, or crossing of a fixed point in the sky. The only fixed thing we've always counted on are the constellations at night, not counting gradual Earth tilting. When the sun crosses a certain vertical midpoint in the sky, it marks a certain time/season in the year. When autumn nears, or "Fall" (the fall adam/atom and the son), it is time to harvest the wine we prepare since the beginning of Spring--this is when Jesus is said to turn water into wine. As for other miracles, we know indeed that sunlight heals all dis-eases (Dis being the name of Hades, and ease being a variation of "yes"; Hades being similar to hate, the opposite of (e)love and (e)light and Yesus the (e)Lord). Egyptians used terms like underworld and dark to refer to "oppositeness" and not just evil, sometimes referring to the female counterpart of the subject. You may also notice many of the god's names sound like Sirius, the dog star (guarded by Cerberus). Sirius is seen as our sun's female twin, if you can accept the notion that we, like most stars, are part of a binary star system, orbiting each other in an orbit believed to be the shape of the infinity symbol. This is why Isis is the wife AND sister of Osiris (like Mary being Jesus' equal, having her own 12 apostles; and Mary appearing in the word to marry). Also, one variation of her name has a silent "t", t being a way to note that something is feminine in egypt (like how dis starts with a "t" sound and refers to opposite off, i.e. disown or discourage). In new age information, there is a notion that our "higher selves" or deceased souls come from and return to Sirius, the blue star. Shouldn't be hard to guess which tribe on earth specializes in the "dog" star--the Dogon tribe. Pretty clever. Some say the Bible (babel or bi-pole) is a "canonical" text, canon being a variation on the word canine or dog.
As a cosmological sidenote, the pleiadians sisters were said to have sent an armed force to defend earth from invaders. If you play games you might have played a character who is a Paladin, who defends and has a high level of honor and morality. In stories of a similar era, Sirens were said to lead men astray. They were put on a 3 rocked island, metaphoric to the 3 headed dog Cerberus, or dog star located in Canis Major right by Orion. At this time, Sirens or Sirians were sent to earth as a colony to help out but ended up losing sight of their mission and lost control to their urge to have power and pleasures. Some art depicts them as mermaids but more classic ones show them with bird wings like harpies. Out of this came Zoroastrian and Sumerian art, story of nephilim (birth of the word nepharious) giants, and the story of fallen angels.
Buddha represents the stomach, the yellow part of the vehicle that manifests the actual physical human body, as in the "bodhi tree", or the tree of life. Like said earlier, stem-ach (stomach) is the stem which grows the spine upward like a tree with many fruits and increasing number of leaves, eventually blossoming into the thousand petal lotus representing complete growth and enlightenment. The lotus lives upon the water with its body under, the way our crown chakra is the root chakra of our higher soul, beginning a new octave of light-energy-vibration-sound-color. Someone mentioned that Jesus was a mushroom, similarly, there is a buddha named Amitābha well known by many cultures so his name is pronounced differently all over. Interestingly his name sounds like the Amanita mushroom, a popular psychoactive kind. Amanita fungus; in west Asia his name is pronounced like "ah-yi-da phuc" and to our side of the globe, "Amida".
Christ could be a variant of Krishna or a variant on the word cross, referring to the heart chakra, and you can infer the rest. In church, people move their fingers from head to chest (Cancer) and then touch the arms (Gemini) to unify the airy or spiritual elements of the body, which relates to the star signs. In popular stories such as Hercules, the hero rides a chariot or in his case, Pegasus, back into battle to defeat the dark. Coincidentally, Pegasus is right next to Pisces, the star symbol representing Jesus' beginning of the 2000 yearlong Pisces age.
Let's get a few more in. Adam and eve; odd and even; when night comes, it is called the evening. The + sign is a cross when the sun is at its highest peak, and - is a picture of the horizon without the sun at night. Many words that start with "N" (not, niet, nunca, none, never, nay, etc) mean zero; n-ight or not light; Day, dia, deity. Greek alphabet starts with alpha and ends with O-mega, O being a circle that completes cycles of life and orbits. Our letter "P" was originally "pi". The letter "O" in several ancient languages meant ayin or eye and drawn as an eye in hieroglyphics.
And to wrap it up with a Jesus tid bit, Krishna was known as a herdsman and Christ was a shepherd. They were both born without sexual union. The holy trinity is called Trimurti in hinduism. They both deliver their followers from sin. Jesus in the Last Supper painting wore a blue and red robe, matching the colors of yin and yang in some taoist beliefs, such as feng shui. He is surrounded by the 12 people, each 3 representing a season, and each person representing a month, a planet, and a zodiac. Ultimately I think there's a good chance most of these Christs existed in humanoid form throughout the past, and I love them the same either as archetypes, concepts, or people (which are made of carbon, having 6 protons, 6 neutrons and 6 elections).
tl;dr: Jesus = sun. Biblical stories = a lot about astronomy. Why people ignore metaphor = flouride. Green movement = use one bottle = refill with poorly filtered tap water. Life feels like a mmorpg.
