      If someone out there did tell you exactly what Christ was doing during that time or any other time, it would be 99.9% B.S. and myth because no one exactly knows. Nothing was written about him till 30+ years after he died by people who never met him.

          The answer is probably sitting in some cave in sealed urn waiting... just waiting for the best marketing time frame to come along so that it can be released on youtube.com.

            There's actually no physical evidence that Jesus existed at all and he's just a medaphore like Robin Hood or King Arthur.

          Why must there be something? If he existed, he was the son of a common laborer. How much would you be able to find about such a person now? As the gospel writes, at the wedding in Canaan, when his mother pointed out there was no more wine, he first said it wasn't his problem. It wasn't yet his time.

          I think, if he existed, the lack of information  on his life prior to the start of his ministry is of his design. The person was not important. The message was.

              I think that's the point. He didn't go anywhere to learn what he knew.

              A guy with no education and no means to get one; found enlightenment from a connection that had existed within him from the moment of birth. And he believed everyone else could too.

                Absolutely brilliant, Em.
                That is the entire sum-substance of "it" all.
                Not only did he believe it, he went out of his way to prove it.
                No other recorded individual in all of human history has come close.

      Jesus survived and did not die on the cross; he migrated to Kashmir, India and lived upto the age of 120 years.

      He traveled!

      After he did God's work, God let him live out the rest of his life as a normal human spreading the word of God and his teachings. There are documents or at least "were" documents, showing he did just that. The bible also got changed, well, pieces were removed in the 1800's.

      If you really want to know the truth, ask God to show you and if He feels you can handle it, you will see the truth. Sometimes we are not ready to know certain things... Its all about His timing, not ours.

        Do you think he was spray painting graffiti on all the stores as well?  After all, He did turn out to be quite a thorn in the authorities side!

      There is gnostic texts that have stories of these missing years. They paint a different picture than what most are used to seeing though.

    Years ago I had a book called "The Other Bible" and it contained Gnostic scripts and a lot of other writings that delt with this very subject.  It also had stories of other miracles Jesus had performed.  A very beautiful read.
