What is the most proper word in English to express that something is religiously the same as something else. I think about something which is the symbol of something else, in common usage, but I think that the essence of religion is that those two things are really regarded as the same. How to express? I think about something like the followings:
The wine is congruent(?) with the blood of Jesus.
All the fruits of that kind of tree are(?) the head of their god.
The horn is analogous(?) to the crescent of the Moon.
The shell is the equivalent(?) of vagina.
Of course, these are can expressed in many other ways, like "X" is regarded as "Y." But I search for a word which can be proper in most of the situations like the above.

@Miss L Toad,
This word is really about I'm talking about, my only problem is its being a noun, while I search for an adjective. So could you mention an adjective expressing someting similar? Which could really fit into the above sentences. Though I've also used "equivalent" as a noun, it's true, but only for not having a good adjective.

@KaJe,
Well, the perfect word, if it existed, would be "one-essenced" or "collective essenced," if you understand.
