Re: Theos-World Jesus in Tibet?

I was able to confirm a few things I did not know before or did not
appreciate as a result of investigating the Jesus in India or Tibet

1) There was a wide use of Aramaic script or derivative scripts from
Sogdiana by use of the Manichaeans as well as in Gandhara through the
Kharoshti script. So we know there was Aramaean influence in Afganistan
and Central Asia before the expansion of Islam in those areas.

2) Pali was used in some Buddhist circles as far north as Kashmir. 
Most scholars assume Pali was not used at all in Kashmir and Tibet, but
this has been disproved by the discovery of a Pali document regarding
Maitreya prophecies found in Kashmir... also we now know that
Theravadin and Mahayana Buddhism existed together in the great Buddhist
schools and universities of northern India.

Trade routes between the middle east and India were well established at
the time of Christ.

I believe that the Qumran community of the Essenes was either directly
involved in the early origins of Christianity or there may have been a
similar Nazorean community separate but similar to the Essenes that was
the actual community of "Jesus" and or "John the Baptist". You can
study the Mandaean scriptures to find support for this.
