    Dionysus fits the Greek understanding of vengeful and selfish God that bear more anthropomorphic traits than Godly traits. Christ, however, transcends human desires for revenge and acts in self-sacrifice. This is the key separation between them. The similarity between the two Gods is striking. Dionysus is associated with wine and revelry.   Dionysus never existed he is a character in Greek mythology. Jesus Christ is the Son of God, Second Person of the Holy Trinity, who became man and took on human form in the viginal womb of his human mother Mary, was born, lived, suffered was crucified, died and was buried, rose again and ascended to heaven.
