This discussion jarred my memory about a book I read about the Jesus's "missing years". To begin with I had no clue that such a huge gap exists in the story of Jesus in the Bible. How did I find out ? As usual by chance as this is NEVER mentioned in the Churches.
While walking down a street I stopped at a make shift book stand on the street displaying numerous books. What caught my eye was the image of Jesus within a typical Buddhist composition displaying the Buddha. The title "The Unknown Life of Jesus Christ" immediately got me thinking "What could be "unknown" ?" that now is known ?
- There is a 18 yr. gap in the story of Jesus
- This gap falls on his prime years of development
- Where was he during this time ? No one in all of my life ever mentioned this.
He decides to go to the East to learn more. When he returns he is "a new man" with abilities that for that time were "miraculous". He attempts to spread new ideas but comes into conflict with the "old ideas". The rest is as in the Bible but with adjustment as to what actually happened to him when he was on the cross and later. Bottom line, he did not die but went into exile in Kashmir.
