Transcript of Zeus in the Modern World

Mythology is still used in modern times as a reference to many things and can be found in many unexpected places.
Zeus in the Modern World
When Zeus was born, his mother had taken him away to be raised by a shepherd family. His father, fearing a prophecy, swallowed all of his children when they were born. Later, his mother took Zeus back to Mount Olympus. He then freed his siblings and overthrew his father. This is how he became the King of the Gods. He owns the domain of the sky (Evslin 3-5).
