The Hidden Story of Jesus


On other occasions I have written about how I felt that instead of focusing on on the differences between different religions perhaps we should focus on the parallels an similarities.

Aired 25 December 2007 on Channel 4 Theologian Dr Robert Beckford investigates amazing parallels to the Christ story in other faiths, some of them predating Christianity by thousands of years.

The Hindu god, Krishna, was conceived by a virgin and his birth was attended by angels, wise men and shepherds. Buddha was also the result of a miraculous birth and visited by wise men bearing gifts. Beckford attempts to unravel the mystery of why there are so many versions of the Christ story across the world.

Whether you like it or not, I found this a very entertaining and compelling documentary.

The video is 1.40 minutes so I suggest you sit back and relax when you have the time for it.
