    Ο Μιθραισμος της περσικης παραδοσης σε σχεση με αυτόν της Ρωμαικης , εχει τεραστια διαφορα. Ο Μιθραισμος της Ρωμαικης παραδοσης είναι μετα τον Χριστιανισμο και δανειστηκε στοιχεια από αυτόν. Τα μυστηρια του Μιθρα είναι μεταγενεστερα του Χριστιανισμου κατά τον Ιωαννίδη (Ο Μυστικισμός του Απ. Παύλου, Αθήναι 1957, σ. 86). Διακοσια χρονια μετα.Το ιδιο αναφερουν και οι Grill και F. Cumont.”The only dated Mithraic inscriptions from the pre-Christian pireod are the texts of Antiochus I of Commagene (69-34 B.C.) in eastern Asia Minor. After that there is one text possibly from the first century A.D., from Cappadocia, one from Phrygia dated to A.D. 77-78, and one from Rome dated to Trajan’s reign (A.D. 98-117). All other dated Mithraic inscriptions and monuments belong to the second century (after A.D. 140), the third, and the fourth century A.D.”. (M. J. Vermaseren, Corpus Inscriptionum et Monumentorum Religionis Mithriacae, 1956). ‘Any possible sacramental meal in Mithraism is unrelated to the Lord’s Supper because it was initiated much later, in the second century. Furthermore, the Christian meal is based on the Passover, begun during the time of Moses”. (Strobel, Lee, The Case for the Real Jesus (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 2007), 170-173. the most important icon in the Roman cult was the tauroctony. This scene shows Mithras in the act of killing a bull, accompanied by a dog, a snake, a raven, and a scorpion; This icon was located in the most important place in every mithraeum, and therefore must have been an expression of the central myth of the Roman cult. Thus, if the god Mithras of the Roman religion was actually the Iranian god Mithra, we should expect to find in Iranian mythology a story in which Mithra kills a bull. However, the fact is that no such Iranian myth exists: in no known Iranian text does Mithra have anything to do with killing a bull”.(THE ORIGINS OF THE MITHRAIC MYSTERIES,Oxford University Press, 1991 David Ulansey). There’s no evidence of Mithraism influencing first-century Christianity”.(Edwin Yamauchi – Strobel, 176).Γενικοτερα, οι οποιεσδηποτε ομοιότητες Μιθραισμου- Χριστιανισμού δεν πηγαζουν από την παλαιότερη Περσικη παραδοση, αλλα από την μεταγενεστερη του χριστιανισμού ρωμαϊκή παράδοση του Μιθραισμου.Ουσιαστικά, πηραν την Περσικη παραδοση και προσέδωσαν σε αυτην χριστιανικα στοιχεια, για να κτυπησουν τον χριστιανισμο .
