Jesus Lived in India promotes the claim of Nicolas Notovich (1894) regarding the unknown years of Jesus between the ages of 12 and 30 in India . The consensus view amongst modern scholars is that Notovitch’s account of the travels of Jesus to India was a hoax. Kersten interprets this as a record of Jesus in Kashmir.
After reaching India , Jesus travelled further east to Rangoon, in Burma, where he remained for some time. He then went north to Kashmir, where he settled.
In 1894, a Russian doctor, Nicolas Notovitch, published a book called the “The Unknown Life of Christ ” based on his extensive journeys in Afghanistan, India and Tibet. During one of his journeys, he visited Leh, the capital of Ladakh and spent some time at the Buddhist monastery of Hemis when he broke his leg.
A belief that Jesus survived the crucifixion and spent his remaining years in Kashmir has led to a run-down shrine in Srinagar making it firmly onto the must-visit-in India tourist trail. In the backstreets of downtown Srinagar is an old building known as the Rozabal shrine.
Mary Magdalene as trusted disciple For its part, the Bible gave no hint that Mary Magdalene was Jesus’s wife . None of the four canonical gospels suggests that sort of relationship, even though they list the women who travel with Jesus and in some cases include their husbands’ names.
Using these methods, most scholars assume a date of birth between 6 and 4 BC, and that Jesus ‘ preaching began around AD 27–29 and lasted one to three years. They calculate the death of Jesus as having taken place between AD 30 and 36.
Seven names of God YHWH . El . Eloah . Elohim . Elohai . El Shaddai . Tzevaot . Jah.
The same reasoning could be used to justify the eating of any meats that Jesus ate , if it is assumed that he did indeed eat other kinds of meat (the Bible does not explicitly say Jesus ate any meat other than fish, and some writers have made much of the fact that no lamb is mentioned at the Last Supper.)
The earliest Christians maintained that Jesus was a human being who was made God – a god – a divine being. Later they ended up saying that Jesus was born to the union of God and a mortal because the Holy Spirit came upon Mary and that’s how she conceived Jesus , so Jesus literally had God as his father.
Mandal also points out that the Christian population in India is either static or dwindling. He argues that the failure of Christianity in the early centuries in Kerala and elsewhere was because they confined themselves to converting Brahmins.
Summary of Jesus’ life He was born to Joseph and Mary sometime between 6 bce and shortly before the death of Herod the Great (Matthew 2; Luke 1:5) in 4 bce. According to Matthew and Luke, however, Joseph was only legally his father.
Jesus at the age of twelve accompanies Mary and Joseph, and a large group of their relatives and friends to Jerusalem on pilgrimage, “according to the custom” – that is, Passover. On the day of their return, Jesus “lingered” in the Temple, but Mary and Joseph thought that he was among their group.
Was Jesus a Buddhist ? Certainly he was many things-Jew, prophet, healer, moral- ist, revolutionary, by his own admission the Messiah, and for most Christians the Son of God and redeemer of their sins. And there is convincing evidence that he was also a Buddhist .
Jesus ‘ name in Hebrew was “Yeshua” which translates to English as Joshua.
The tomb is located in one of the world’s holiest sites for Christians, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem’s Old City.
