Isn’t it the Mormons who claim that Jesus came to America and had dealings
with the Indians. Sort of like what you are saying.

It all sounds a bit farfetched.



Dear Albert,
I am not a Mormon, but it my understanding that Mormons believe that Jesus came to America and appeared to his followers after his resurrection. My books present evidence that, in the time of Jesus Christ’s human lifetime, there were voyages between the Old World and New World. Given that the Gospel accounts say almost nothing about Jesus’ life between ages 12 and 30, there is an about 18-year gap in biblical accounts about his life. My books present evidence that Jesus was absent from Judea during those years, and that he was often with Joseph of Arimathea, who was an international businessman. Jesus had been worshipped by the Magi/Wise Men of the Parthian Empire in Asia so he would have had powerful connections to travel anywhere in Asia. My book also examines the traditions that Jesus was, along with Joseph of Arimathea, present in the region of Glastonbury in England during part of his biblical “missing years.”   My book presents evidence indicating Jesus could have visited the New World during his lifetime.
John 21:25 states that Jesus did far more deeds and activities than were recorded in the Gospel accounts, and Luke 2:52 records Jesus “increased in wisdom and…in stature with God and man” after the account of Jesus in the Temple at age 12. Since the Gospels were “eyewitness accounts” (Luke 1:2, II Peter 1:6), and there are no eyewitness accounts of his post-age 12 exploits until age 30, it is evident that his exploits and deeds occurred outside Judea. Jesus openly asserted to his disciples that he had “sheep” in another “fold” besides those located in Judea. Since he likened the people of the scattered ten tribes of Israel to “sheep” (Matthew 10:6, 15:24), it follows that Jesus visited the nations where the ten tribes of Israel were located during his “missing 18 years” and that he had followers in those other nations (i.e. “a fold”) already. For a full discussion of this documentation about Jesus’ “missing 18 years,” you could obtain a copy of my book, Parthia–The Forgotten Ancient Superpower, which has a lengthy chapter on this very subject. It is available at the book links at this website.
