Also on some other walls and tables were statues of Shiva, Vishnu, etc.

The owner of the house noticed my friend looking at the picture with what must have been a puzzled look, and he asked my friend if he had any questions. My friend asked why they had a picture of Jesus if their household was Hindu, and the man responded back that his family believes that Jesus was one of the manifestations of God.

So, here’s my question: is it possible, iyo, that God may have had possibly many manifestations to different peoples in different parts of the world?” Unquote

Prophets of G-d are “in the image of G-d” perfectly; to the extent a human could inculcate His attributes; hence all prophets/messengers of G-d like Krishna, Buddha,Zoroaster,Moses, Jesus, Muhammad are manifestation of G-d, in this sense. G-d manifested through them and revealed His message to them; that is another form of His manifestation.

Those who consider Jesus and or Krishna as the supreme-god have not correctly understood this concept; they need to correct it, please.
