Jesus was a Buddhist
  • It is entirely possible that Jesus journeyed to India and was a Buddhist discipline. The Bible has not much to say about his life between the age of 12 and 29. His teachings have a lot in common with the teachings of Buddha. Since Buddhism has no god, anyone can follow its teachings while still adhereing to an Abrahamic religion. If we look at the historical side, it's simply impossible that someone living in the Middle East wouldn't have heard about Buddhism. We also have some reports from India and Central Asia (albeit with arguable credibility) about a figure like/or Jesus himself appearing there, and involving himself in religious matters. It is also very likely that the writers of the Gospels were inspired by certain aspects of Buddhism, and planted its philosophy into their books.
