Best Answer

Greek Olympic Games inspired modern Olympic Games. One similaritty is the time between the events. In old Greek, Olympic Games happens every year, but only each four years happens the Olympic Games dedicated to Zeus, the major god in Olimpo. Other similaritie is the competittion between regions, today, countries.

Other point is the competittion in running, the oldest sport in Olympic Games. More than that, the fire to make open the event is inspired in old Greek.

There really are no similarities between the ancient Greek religions and modern Christianity.
