Did Jesus go to India as a child and learn from Hindu Gurus? Answer

Featuring: Paul Davids
Director: Paul Davids
Producer: Paul Davids
Distributor: Universal City Studio Productions

Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “This film is loosely based on the book King of Travelers: Jesus’ Lost Years in India by Edward T. Martin.

It begins with a former ‘Fundamentalist’ from Texas, ousted from his provincial church for asking too many questions. ‘If God wanted you to know about that, it would have been in the Bible,’ he is told, ‘—so stick to worrying about your own salvation.’ But that’s not good enough for Edward T. Martin, and thus begins a seeker’s quest across 4000 miles of India in search of answers about where Jesus was during the ‘Hidden Years’ from ages 12 to 30. The New Testament is silent on those years, however in India there is an ancient tradition that young Jesus joined a caravan and took the Silk Road to the East, where He lived with both Hindus and Buddhists before returning to begin His ministry. To what extent are these traditions based on evidence, and why does the ‘Pope’ of Hinduism now insist that Jesus was in India?

JESUS IN INDIA was been picked up by NBC Universal for international TV distribution through Universal City Studios Productions, LLLC, which has also brought two other Paul Davids films to worldwide TV: ‘THE SCI-FI BOYS’ and ‘STARRY NIGHT.’

JESUS IN INDIA will reach U.S. domestic TV on the Sundance Channel.”
