Like Jesus, Buddha, too, was supposedly born to a virgin.<quoted text>
rabbee: well that's only because, there is no story. of the virgin giving birth, to the Buddha in the Torah.
Of course, these are mere stories.
Before the Buddhist Canon, Torah comes across as a barbaric book invented by a barbarian and aimed at barbarians.
Buddha's teachings are limited but very refined and have a global perspective.
By the time, Jesus was born, Buddhist missionaries had reached the far Middle East and so it is a distinct possibility that Jesus was influenced by Buddhist thought in his childhood given the fact that many of his key teachings are direct lift-offs from Buddhist texts.
But, Jesus' compassion was conditional - follow me or be cursed.
However, Jesus' key teachings (despite being conditional and copied from Eastern mysticism) are nevertheless a great improvement over the teachings of Abraham, Moses, Elijah and other patriarchs for obvious reasons.
Buddha stands far above Jesus, Abraham, Moses, Elijah and the others.
