Some believe that during the 'lost years' of his life Jesus traveled the world and spent time in Japan.

Smithsonian Magazine said:

In Shingo, the Greatest Story Ever Told is retold like this: Jesus first came to Japan at the age of 21 to study theology. This was during his so-called “lost years,” a 12-year gap unaccounted for in the New Testament.

I do like that his younger brother has a Japanese name. It's basically Japanese fan-fiction of the Bible.

Jesus didn't have a brother, this story is fake. I mean seriously it's been noted that jesus performed miracles. But when all that time he spent in japan, he did not perform not even one miracle? All a bit too much for me. Don't get me wrong I too would love to go to japan and fall inlove with a japanese girl. I mean who wouldn't? It just sounds like every mans dream just to run off to japan and be pampered by a japanese girl. That would be so nice

The "missing 12-years" has always been curious to myself and many other's, of course.

Not sure what to think. There are scant, unauthenticated indications with regards to India, but I've never heard about his traveling to Japan before.

Who knows. 12-years is a long time, even on foot, or mule or whatever. Could have gone many places I suppose.

Hard to say where Jesus was. I've heard or read someplace where he went to Tibet.And I've also heard mention of India.
He may very well have gone to visit the Essenes or Eygpt or out to the east. Guess we really won't know.

No, he spent that time clearing space for traders and helping people win money in the Lottery...such is the way today.

page one of the article is wacky enough, but page 2 is just golden. I'm so dazzled with Japanese miracles I don't know where to turn.

Well, according to the Bible Jesus had a brother, but I believe his name was James not Isukiri. Who is to say where Jesus traveled in those 12 years.

Jesus supposedly had 4 brothers, James, Judas, Simon, and Joseph.  He also had sisters but they aren't mentioned by name in the bible.

He did perform a lot of miracles, pity there's no real way to know for sure who did what now.

I think it fits perfectly. C'mon, it's the greatest 'story' ever told but it's time for a face lift. He obviously could've walked there but, bor---ing. Maybe he commanded the wind to fill the sails on his ship, or better yet, commandeered 'the whale' and arrived in style. Someday, I could file this with the abundance of other supporting historical evidence.   LMAO

Many people have not heard of the Kaballah or do not take enough interest in it.  But what is true is that the Jewish people were as aware of the spiritual body as the Japanese, Chinese, and the Guru's of India.  If you read the bible right, you would notice similarities in the glowing of Abraham and the glowing of Buddha.  The people during the time of Jesus were definitly concerned with immortality.  Remember this, those who are in the know have the power, those who do not know are powerless.  Without the virtue to conquer such fears as Fasting for 40 days, a person can be controlled by their fears.  They won't know peace nor make the right choice, they are being compulsed by wants from spiritual hosts that are so subtle because you had grown up with this subtle enemy, you won't know they are there.  He would not have needed to travel to Japan or India or China just to learn about meditation and enlightenment and the necessity for fasting and obeying the law of the Sabbath day.  When he was spiritually aware enough he could be obedient to the word of God that he could hear, living by faith and obedience to a higher being, by walk a higher road, living by virtue and obedience and belief in the One true God.  Rather than false deities also common at the time  in many other countries such as India, China, and Japan.
