Greek mythology has similarities to the Bible in that it is an attempt by ancient man to explain just how we got here. But that's where the similarities end! Greeks had more than one god to explain certain facets of human life. While there was a "big cheese," there were plenty of gods who just represented one thing, and there were even female gods. They were as vengeful as they were kind—they were gods, after all.

Greek mythology not only explains human nature it also teaches us how to be better people. Who looked at themselves in the water and fell in love with his own reflection? Who flew too close to the Sun? Who rolled a giant boulder up a hill only to have it roll back down as soon as he was about to make the peak? Who was the king that had the golden touch? Do you know?
