A controversial BBC documentary suggests Jesus was a Buddhist monk

Jesus Christ’s life, death, and resurrection formed the very basis of Christianity. Almost everyone worldwide, no matter what religion or culture, knows about Jesus Christ. We have all been told a certain narrative and mostly, we believe this narrative.

Simply put, Jesus Christ died on the Cross. He was resurrected days later. Historians and scholars have studied his life and death and written extensively on the meaning. Yet a BBC documentary has been aired called ‘Did Jesus Die?’, and suddenly we have a whole new way of thinking. Of course, most Christians and theologians are not buying into the new theories but they certainly give us food for thought.

The BBC documentary looks back at the time of Jesus Christ and asks - Did Jesus really die on the cross? They explore the possibility that perhaps Jesus was resuscitated from the cross, so he did not die, and he traveled to either France or India. They suggest he traveled with Mary Magdalene and while this idea is both explosive and insulting to many Christians and believers, it may be true.

The researchers have been exploring the idea that Jesus survived the cross. They say there is not enough evidence to suggest he died at all and that the resurrection stories were added 200 years later. Perhaps the death of Jesus and his resurrection became a myth, a story that people liked to believe?

The documentary suggests that Jesus may well have been taken to India as a child, was reared as a Buddhist, and maybe the stories we know are exactly that, just stories?

Either way it’s always a good idea to question what we are taught, to study and read and to find our own conclusions. Jesus Christ is still the most defining figure in religious history, no matter what the story is.

  1. I have been saying this for over a decade!

    Ever since i studdied Buddhism and discovered that nearly everything Jesus said or had said about him was stolen word for word from Buddhist Dharma and the mythology surrounding the first Buddah.

    Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane?
    Straight up plagarization of Buddah under the Bodhi Tree.

    Turn water to wine? Yup.
    Ride into town on a mule? Check.
    Came back to life? Of course!
    Heal the sick? You guessed it!

    And on and on and on and on.

    Hell! The bible practically gives the trick away when it tells how Jesus went to live with his uncle, a traveling merchant from Jerusalem.

    Since Jerusalem was the very end of the Silk Road and Hebrew merchants had a monopoly on trading goods from the worlds largest and oldest superhighway within the city, the ONLY place a Traveling Hebrew merchant went was to India, as all other routes out of Jerusalem would have been beneath him.

    Are we really surprised that Buddhist missionaries followed the silk to the end of the road?

    Im not. Christianity as told by Jesus is a perfect blend of the old testament Hebrew faith with the softening influence of Buddhist compassion.

    Buddhism is the elemental carbon of religions: It blends well with nearly any other belief system and tends to make them more stable.

    Thats a big reason why there are so many variations of Buddhism out there.

    1. Yes, nice reply. I view Buddhism as an appendage, organ, or offshoot of the Hindu system. Krishna is a fig tree- Adam and Eve's first clothes, representing the narratives that "dress" the mystic teachings of the gods and sages. Krishna-Christ, Abraham-Brahma, the Trinity, Adam-Atman, all related and more.
