Jesus in India

Interview w/ Filmmaker Paul Davids On His Documentary Jesus In India

What is some of the proof evidence wise that Jesus actually visited India?

Paul Davids: Proof is too strong a word. What author Edward T. Martin likes to say is “where there’s smoke, there may be fire,” so our documentary film “JESUS IN INDIA” follows the smoke signals. The questions arise because the New Testament has only one sentence (in Luke) about Jesus’ years from age 13 to 30, and it simply makes the general observation that Jesus increased in knowledge and wisdom and favor with God and man during those years. In the 1890’s, Nicolas Notovitch, a Russian explorer, published THE UNKNOWN LIFE OF JESUS CHRIST revealing Notovitch’s experience at the Hemis monastery in Ladakh, where Buddhist monks showed him a document in the Tibetan language that filled in the missing years of Jesus and detailed Jesus’ travels in India. That document was reported to be a copy of a much older manuscript from the Pali language. Although the document was reported to have been seen and read by several other travelers through the decades, it has not surfaced today for scientific examination. It was translated a second time by a Hindu scholar, Swami Abhedananda.

One of the reasons it is so fascinating is that it depicts Jesus interacting with Hindu society much as he did with Jewish authorities in Judea. He was seen as a troublemaker who challenged the orthodox rules and Brahman rulers and favored the “Untouchables,” much as he later was a healer of lepers. Our film followed the trail in search of the document, not finding it but obtaining a curious response from authorities at Hemis monastery. We take the questions to world authorities and leaders of major religions including Hinduism and Buddhism. We examine evidence of ancient Hindu texts that are known. We also consider how Jesus would have traveled to India and the known facts of Saint Thomas’ presence in India after the crucifixion, as well as the ancient Jewish presence in India and Kashmir. Also considered is the claim that the tomb of a prophet in Kashmir (Yuz Asaf) might actually be the historical tomb of Jesus who some believe survived the crucifixion and then journeyed to Kashmir, site of a Jewish lost tribe and much Jewish heritage including a temple of Solomon.
