Better still - went to the heavens when his "mortal part" died to live with the gods.

More food for thought: The Twelve Labors of Hercules parallels the supposed miracles.

Now - fold into this all of the "pagan" customs that give christianity it's character (eggs, rabbits for fertility in the Spring, yule logs and tree lighting for winter, and of course gift giving for the festival of Janus). What you have here is an awful lot of circumstantial evidence of where and what inspired the whole thing, at least as we know it.
