The Bible explicitly records the life of Jesus, with one exception—his life between the ages of thirteen and thirty. Yet ancient Buddhist scripture records the life of Saint Issa, which astoundingly parallels the life of Jesus of Nazareth. Issa is a story of Jesus's life during the missing years, his journey through Asia, and the tests of the heart he had to pass before he could change the world.
