FYI

There are also two sets of distinct accounts of Jesus travelling through India.[33] According to the first set of accounts, Jesus travelled and studied in India between the ages of twelve and thirty. According the second set of accounts, Jesus did not die on the cross, but after his apparent death and resurrection he journeyed to Kashmir to teach the gospel, and then remained there for the rest of his life.[33][34] The origin of the first set of accounts is attributed to Russian author Nicolas Notovitch who published the book La vie Inconnue du Jesus Christ (The Unknown life of Jesus Christ) in 1894.[33][35] Once his story had been re-examined by historians, Notovitch confessed to having fabricated the evidence.[36] Bart D. Ehrman states that "Today there is not a single recognized scholar on the planet who has any doubts about the matter. The entire story was invented by Notovitch, who earned a good deal of money and a substantial amount of notoriety for his hoax".[37]

The origin of the second set of accounts is attributed to Indian author Mirza Ghulam Ahmed who published the book Masih Hindustan Mein (Jesus in India) in 1899.[38] These two accounts are generally not presented in combination. While travel between Middle-East and India was common during those times, these accounts are not given serious thought and treated as speculation since there is no historical account, either in early Christian writings or Indian historical accounts, to either confirm or refute Jesus travelling to India.[33]

Scholars now unanimously consider Notovitch's book as a hoax.[39] although it has been speculated that the stories might be referring to Mani, the founder of extinct Manichaeism who is considered as a false prophet in Christendom

Wow, the debate is so hot that there are a lot of ideas and opinions!
However, I admire that the post owner is good at writing in English. I know almost words in this passage, but I can not use them precisely and beautifully!
