    I have always been skeptical of these claims because of the lack of *clear" scriptural support.

    What do you think?

    Here is some information regarding both...

    I'm not sure whether or not Jesus visited the British Isles, but I've been told that after Jonah left Nineveh he sailed to Great Britain and lived in Wales. :tonofbricks:

    The Bible does not allow for any of it in terms of the life of Christ.

    Dan 9 Jesus was to be annointed (the annointed one) near the end of the 490 year timeline (69th week ends in the 483 year of that contiguous timeline prophecy). That takes place at His baptism.

    Matt 3:13 his ministry begins with him leaving Galilee and going to John.

    John 2:11 the first signs/miracles of Christ's ministry was at the wedding in Cana of Galilee - after calling his disciples to himself (in John 1).

    John 1:31 John is the one sent to prepare the way for Christ - he indicates the sign that he was given by God pointing to the true Messiah. Christ's ministry does not begin until after He is baptized by John who was sent to prepare the way of the Lord.

    Christ tells his disciples NOT to go to the gentile nations. Matt 10:5.

    Paul says that it was necessary that the Word of God regarding Christ's coming should go to the Jews first Acts 13:46

    In John 4 Jesus tells the Samaritan woman "salvation is of the Jews" John 4:22

    in Christ,

    Bob

    According to Joseph Smith (founder of the Latter Day Saints) He was also in America... There is even less solid data to conclude that Christ was in America (save for the Holy Spirit who goes as the wind blows...) than for other places.

    I doubt that He was all over the world that way because the Bible seems to indicate that everyone in His home town knew Him. They, including the core family, did not really have any indication that He was the Messiah until after the resurrection, save for Mary, who had "pondered all those things in her heart..." when interviewed by Luke when he investigated the circumstances of Christ's birth for his gospel.

    As Saint John admitted, Jesus did all kinds of things that were not mentioned in the Bible

    Since his ascension Jesus remains seated at the right hand of God because Jesus retains his human body.

    I have heard that the Buddhists claim that Jesus Christ visited them prior to his public ministry but have nothing to substantiate the claim.

    I am sceptical because the lack of any scriptural support. And the WikiAnswers phrase, "There within the British Archives" is vague, to say the least! Which archives? Who wrote the story? When?

    Suppose I wrote:
    According to British archives, Charles Spurgeon and his wife Susannah lived at Beulah Hill, Westwood, Croydon, Surrey in 1881 and one of their servants at the time was a butler by the name of George Lovejoy.
    "Spurgeon, employing a butler," someone could say, "and with an improbable name like Lovejoy? No, I don't believe it! It was probably made up in the 20th century, and the made-up story somehow found its way into the archives"
    But if instead I wrote:
    According to the 1881 British Census, Charles Spurgeon and his wife Susannah lived at....
    anyone who had the slightest doubt as to the truth of my statement could then easily refer to the 1881 Census, where they would find confirmation of what I had said.

    There is a town in northern Honshu, Japan, where they claim Jesus came before the crucifixion. Supposedly Judas died in Christ's place. The legend is that Christ married a Japanese woman and had a bunch of kids! What they offer as proof is an ancient grave with a cross on it. Pretty silly stuff. The grave actually probably belonged to a Nestorian missionary. :type:

    At the risk of being repetitive, does anyone know which British archives contain "the story of a man known only as the Messiah", as the OP quote from WikiAnswers claims?
