Forums - Sony Discussion - Did Kratos become Jesus/God?

Hey!

So.. I came across this and got shivers. Thought it'd be cool for any GoW fans that havent seen it.

I saw a video from like a while back as well as read about it on the GoW wiki.

Ill just copy paste it from the wiki and embedd the video below.

_________________________________________

In God of War I:

The above image seen in Pandora's Temple shows an important battle between the Gods and a lone warrior. In God of War II, that lone warrior turns out to be Kratos fighting Zeus. How Pathos Verdes III knew of the upcoming battle is unknown, like many other aspects of passages and statues within Pandora's Temple. Interestingly enough, Zeus isn't portrayed with a white, long beard in the first game when he appears to Kratos to give him Zeus' Fury. This image is also seen in God of War II, throughout the Island of Creation.

In Kratos' flashbacks, when he has Lysandra in his arms after killing her, Ares appears and tells Kratos that he planned the scheme that made Kratos murder his wife and child, in order to take away the "obstacles" that could prevent Kratos' transformation into the perfect warrior, and becoming "Death itself". Years later, as a god, Kratos killed Thanatos, the God of Death, and, in the Grave Digger's own words, becoming "Death, the destroyer of worlds". One can conclude that, even unintentionally, Ares predicted that Kratos would somehow overcome Death.

 

In God of War II:

The murals within the Inner Sanctum of the Temple of the Fates had depictions of the events that occured in the First and Second Great War.

First mural 


In the first mural, "The all consuming battle between the Titans and the Olympians rages on". The mural shows that the Olympians and the Titans had been engaging in battle.

Second mural


In the second mural, "A lone soul surveys the wake of carnage that surrounds him". It could possibly mean that a lone man, possibly Kratos, stood amidst the destruction left behind after the Second Great War.

Third mural


In the third mural, it depicts "Three travellers heading to an unknown destiny". The mural shows three men walking towards a star in the sky, alluding the journey of the Three Wise Men towards the birth of Christ guided by the Star of Bethlehem. This also signifies that after the end of Greek Gods, Christianity has surfaced along other religions. Some fans theorize that Kratos will become the God that is believed and worshipped by monotheistic religions, while others believe Kratos might, in some way, be connected to Christ himself, being the son of a God who saved humanity by giving them hope. Another curious aspect is that in God of War II, a Griffin Rider wields a weapon called Spear of Destiny, the weapon that shares name with the spear that impales Christ's sides during his crucifixion that is used by a Roman soldier, Longinus.

Now in God of War III:

Only the first two prophecies of the murals have been fulfilled in God of War III: The war between Gods and Titans and Kratos, the last survivor of the war, who attempted to commit suicide with the blade of Olympus at the end to give hope to mankind. However, an after credit video shows a pool of blood where Kratos laid and a trail of that blood to a cliff, where no body is seen. If he survived or not is unknown at this point.

Interestingly, there is an image where Kratos laid after impaling himself. It closely resembles a Phoenix, which is reborn from its ashes after death. This could be interpreted as Kratos starting a new life after the destruction of all he knows. However, the image could also be an eagle as that is Zeus' symbol.

It is possible the other murals have been fulfilled. As Kratos kills off the Gods of Olympus as well as releasing the evils of Pandora's Box, and finally giving hope to all of mankind, he can be seen as the catalyst to the age of man and Christianity. This could be seen as the prologue to the age of man. As the Gods died, the ocean and sea levels rose, the dead souls wandered the earth aimlessly, the sky blackened as clouds blocked the sun, locust and bacteria carrying flies swarmed all over, and disease spread across the remaining population (among other things), all could be references to the Plagues of Egypt as referred in the Book of Exodus.

It is also worth noting that the book of Genesis describes beings known as "Nephilim", superhuman entities who were the sons of angels and humans and are called the "heroes of old, the men of renown." The book shortly thereafter describes a cataclysmic flood which destroys most of the life, including the Nephilim, on Earth, obliterates all civilizations, and ushers in the age of Judaism as a handful of survivors rebuild the world from scratch; much like the flood brought forth by Kratos' actions in God of War III destroy the Gods, mythical beasts, and all of the perceived world by the end of the game. If the murals in the Hall of the Fates are any indication to the Judeo-Christian nuances in the series, perhaps the Gods of Olympus and supporting mythological figures found throughout the games are to be the Nephilim, the legendary heroes and men of old. Where Kratos and his new-found redemption fit in this theory, it is hard to say; though given that Kratos caused the flood and the other plagues, it could be implied that he may become something akin to the Christian God, leaving Deimos and having escaped from the Underworld. Yet as of Deimos' death in God of War: Ghost of Sparta, this idea is unlikely to happen.

An interesting note: God of War III was released on March 16. 3:16 is a famous verse from the Bible. John 3:16 - "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life".

Whether this was intentional on the part of the developers is unknown, as it could be referring to the game's scene with Kratos overlooking the world of chaos.

I am so confused. Did you write all that. GOW is alternative take on Greek Mythology from my understanding. It doesn't have connection with any other spiritual denomination. People who are linking it to Jesus/Buddha/Moses etc are just reading too much into it. Games are dope though. Play em.

this is the part that really helps your theory. well done. bravo.

 

edit: it took Kratos 6 days............and on the 7th he rested lol. look at the vid again. liken to day one of this grand restructuring of planet earth.

has nothing to do with judeo christian stuff as the abrahamid religions only have one god from the beginning of time.
therefore there are no other gods and nephilims definitivly are no gods,they are just 50% angels.
most of the greek gods are real gods,no angels,some hybrids(hercules)

and bhuddism? according to buddha there are no gods (=jobless kratos)but you can have as many as you want or need.

i wonder why roman gods are not mentioned as they are very similar to the greeks and i also wonder if all those things mentioned in the text are just coincidal or if the gow story is deeper and better than i thought.

KRAYTOZ! :'D, Fucking wanna know if its coincidence or not xD



HMM

Could the Three Wise Men be related to The Three Judges from GoW3?! Well they dont walk and theres nothing regarding a star.. so maybe not. But yeah xD Sick. I hope Ascension has something in hold for us regarding the future... despite it being you know.. in the past ;(



Very big stretch. Somebody is reading way too far into things.

Plus, kratos, a being of unrestrained rage, would not make a very good christian god.
