  • Since Odin is a mythological character and Christ (i.e. Jesus of Nazareth) is a real historical person, I guess you'd have to say Christ. I also believe the Odin myths developed after the 4th century A.D. so Christ predates the stories of Odin as well.
  • Jesus was born in the autumn of 2 B.C.E. Worship of Odin may date to Proto-Germanic paganism. The Roman historian Tacitus may refer to Odin when he talks of Mercury. The reason is that, like Mercury, Odin was regarded as Psychopompos,"the leader of souls." The earliest mention that I could find of Odin in my research, was 200 A.D.
  • The Christ was born roughly about 2009 years ago and Odin was known as one of the old gods, so I think he was worshipped by the Norse since long before then. So I'll go with Odin.
  • The ' god' Odin, is man made...and has no power...
  • Only once in two weeks or so I ever see the word Odin. Jesus is the creator. He was before now and forever more.
  • A bit of a non question as "Odin" didn't come at all, but was a "placeholder" for a now defunct worldview.
  • In the imagination of mankind, Odin was a 'god' of the Vikings...[ end of the first millennium] Jesus was a thousand years earlier...but was not worshipped as God...His true followers realiased that Jesus WAS who he said he was...the SON of God. [ Jehovah] (Exodus 6:3) And I used to appear to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob as God Almighty, but with regard to my name Jehovah I did not make myself known to them. Jesus was not known when this was written. Even though he did exist...in heaven alongside his father, Jehovah. (Colossians 1:15) He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; As well as being the first born of Mary
