Again with the Japanese this week, they have fascinating takes on religion as well. While there have been claims that Jesus never died/resurrected ever SINCE he was reported as dead/resurrected, I don’t think I ever heard he was a world traveler before. The anthropology on this would be fascinating, since there is such a miniscule Christian presence in that country. But that wasn’t always so: the Portuguese were very evangelistic before the shoguns closed the country to the West and massacred the hundreds of thousands of Japanese Christians as traitors. Maybe this is one of the things that survived from that time and was corrupted as legends and myths often are.
