Did Jesus study Buddhism?
The first we read about Jesus was the impending birth, the birth in a manger, the flight to Egypt and finally, the genius child of twelve who amazed the scholars of His day. Before that, there is nothing written until He shows up at age 30 performing miracles, gathering His disciples and teaching the locals about the kingdom of God. Along the way he had a few run-ins with the Pharisees and He made it perfectly clear how he felt about them.... more than once he called them hypocrites. He didn't like them.
If one were to look closely at the teachings of Jesus, he wasn't teaching the Torah, the typical Jewish Holy Book. He taught, love, forgiveness, acceptance, patience, endurance, He meditated, he prayed, he didn't teach in a synagogue or temple.....Jesus wasn't a Pharisee or of the Rabbinical line. The first time the word Rabbi is written in any text is in the New Testament and it refers to Jesus. .
In India, there is a tomb which claims a Jew from Israel is buried. His name is Essa and footprints which are purported to be His show feet on which a scar is shown on both feet as if the man had been crucified.
Did Jesus survive the Crucifixion? Did He travel to India? Did He die there?
Whether or not Jesus died on the cross, or survived an excruciating death isn't what is important. What is important is the lessons He taught, the life He lived, the example He set for us to follow. Whether Jesus was a Jew or a Buddhist is irrelevant....because . if we spend our time arguing the pont, we have missed the point. He was the Word.......the last Word.
But for 18 years, Jesus is not to be heard from or seen.
