The present article takes a cursive look on the issue of the influence of Iranian culture and Zoroastrian tradition on Jewish culture and tradition emphasizing the issue of salvation and saviourism. At the first stages of comparative study of religions, two opposite extreme attitudes were established, one overemphasizing the foregoing influence and the other denying any influence outright.
However, these two attitudes – in spite of having some adherents – were gradually moderated. So the issue of the influence of Iranian religion on Jewish tradition is unquestionable. Saviourism is particularly one of the common points between Zoroastrianism and Abrahamic religions, thus the probability of one being influenced by others.
