I believe his name was actually "Apollonius of Tyana". He lived at the same time as the Roman-created JC and worked many miracles during his life. He studied in Anatolia (Turkey) in Pythagoreanism, then went to India for a long time where he embraced the Vedic truths as well. That's why there's a 'mythology' about "Jesus being in India", because who they're really talking about is this "Apollonius of Tyana" who is an ACTUAL man. Nothing in Archaeology or written documentation of the time, has ever put a 'Jesus of Nazareth' on the map in Judea (Roman Palestine) in the years 4-37AD. However, Apollonius the man, WAS living in Palestine from around 33-38 AD, after he'd finished his 5 years of silence in Anatolia. After his silence, he began "his mission". The 5 years of silence was the 'final rite of passage' before he could present himself to the world as a Pythagorean sophist (philosopher). Interesting man. But YES !! Apollonius who did miracles, raised the dead and calmed the seas WAS living in Roman Judea from 33-38 AD !! So was HE in fact, the 'character' that the Roman elite families used to develop their stories in the New Testament, and upon which the whole of Christendom through "Roman Catholocism" is based ??
I wouldn't put it past them :-/
