Death of the author


We can’t know for sure what the Vikings thought of Jesus but he tends to look more defiant and strong-willed than suffering on the cross in their few depictions of him, suggesting they were more impressed by his ability to overcome death than anything else he did.

That was one of the things about vikings, they accepted that EVERYTHING died. Even the gods would die during ragnarok. To have something cheating death was a new tale and an anomaly.

I like Grandpa North's view on things. It does match how Jesus were depicted by the Vikings, who preferred strong gods to worship. (Strength being relative and counted in many different ways).

Jesus looks like he could strangle me with his beard and I'd thank him.

If Jesus as described ever existed then he certainly didn't die for anyone's sins looking at the Christian mythology. At lest there is no support for this in the bible directly attributed to Jesus. He asked god (himself) to forgive the Romans for executing him but that is about it.

The Vikings combined Jesus and their own gods; just look at Grandpa Norths little cute stone!

Fun fact:
either in the prose or poetic edda there is a moment where they talk about a new god named Fimbultyr "mighty god"
it's almost absolutely just jesus inserted being better than all the aesir
the only other time Fimbultyr is used is for an epithet for Odin
