  1. no....christ was NOT a buddhist. his whole preaching and teaching campaign was devoted to the coming of his father's kingdom and giving a foreglimpse of what he will do for man during his millennial reign after armageddon, through the various miracles he performed. his other objective was to get a body of apostles assembled to carry on his teaching work after he returned to heaven to present the value of his blood to his father and restore what adam had lost. he did not preach the cyclical rebirth of samsara, which is the primary buddhist teaching, or that man even had an immortal soul in the first place! when he spoke of death, he spoke of it as sleep and resurrection as waking them up. not that he was bringing their soul from some afterlife to put back in their body. this whole investigation is a bunch of heretical nonsense.
