Book Review: The Unknown Life of Jesus Christ

I have done a lot of reading lately. This is my 3rd book in as many weeks. I found this one while researching Jesus Christ’s life and it intrigued me.

In 1887, Nicolas Notovitch—a Belarusian Jewish adventurer and self-proclaimed Russian aristocrat and journalist—traveling to India to study the Hindu culture comes across an interesting find. While recovering from a broken leg in a Buddhist monastery in the Himalayas the abbot told him of a manuscript they had in their possession that was written of a Saint Issa. According to the Buddhist monks, Saint Issa was Jesus Christ. The monks said that he was with them learning and preaching. He had many followers and apparently was held in great respect by the Buddhists.

Nicolas received permission to see this manuscript and had it read to him by his translator while he wrote the translation down. It was fourteen chapters of 244 verses in total, titled “Life of Saint Issa, The Best of the Sons of Men.”

Some inaccuracies were pointed out in his story and the true existence of this manuscript. So in the beginning, Nicolas was discredited, however, that does not explain the other 9 people that have witnessed the existence of the manuscript in question. To this day it is still a controversial finding.

Peace, Love, and Happiness to you all.
