If Jesus was missing from Judea, and he was reported by Hindus and Buddhists in India or Tibet; why should it be doubted? Are Romans more trustworthy than the Indians or Tibetans?

There is one issue with this that I can see straight up without having much personal dealings with Buddhist teachings. As I have not read much of Buddhist teachings personally, I do know enough of about Buddhism to have a red flag raised with your argument here. Now, what I mean argument in the sense that you have made a statement, that is, the Buddha prophesized about Jesus, and provided “evidence” for this statement.

The red flag raised by your argument is that the writings of Buddha came hundreds of years after Buddha and were written by later followers of his ideas. In other words, the same argument you used against me about Jesus and the Gospel, that is Jesus never wrote the Gospel himself, nor did he commission anyone to write such a thing, thus we cannot take what the Gospels say about Jesus as truth. This same idea can be applied to your idea of Buddha, that is, he never commissioned anyone to write his teachings, nor did he write them himself. They came long after Buddha’s death (even later then the Gospels in relation to Jesus, the earliest manuscripts came a couple hundred years, the later manuscripts almost 400 years after Buddha). Thus your argument on rejecting the Gospels can be applied to the foundation you have used to project the truth of your idea of Jesus.

My submission is not that the entire Hindu Scriptures or Buddhist Scriptures or the Christian Scriptures should be accepted as truthful; all of them are subject to research. All Scriptures should be respected on a broad base; nevertheless having some or many bad or good points; it is not difficult to see through the corruption.

When a thief steals something, he leaves some the clues there; a Sherlock Homes would find out the wrongdoer. If somebody murders; there is often a purpose of that murder pointing out to the culprit. Human wisdom and reasoning could do wonders.

Investigation could be done as is customary for the criminals. It is not an ordinary mistake; it is playing with the innocent human being’s life. Unusual should be compared with the usual. If there are contradictions, one can choose normal from the abnormal.

If we accept without investigation; that means we cannot separate right from the wrong or virtue from the wrong. Then our faith is worthless or good for nothing. Our faith does not require that; it is becoming totally blind. It would be leaping into the dark right into the ditch or the devil.

When did Jesus say that we should not discern right from the wrong? Jesus did not say anything like that. If he did say then please quote text with the context and wisdom.

If Jesus was missing from Judea, and he was reported by Hindus and Buddhists in India or Tibet; why should it be doubted? Is it abnormal to travel to India rather than ascending to skies? If a man is missing in London and he is seen in Washington; should we doubt it?

I love Jesus and Mary as I love Moses and his mother.
