Mark,In that autobiography Sanders gives good acivde, such as learning about Judaism, and studying the most primary sources available.In the same vein, it’s advisable, I’d say, to study Hinduism and Buddhism, due to the oral and written traditions saying that Issa had traveled to India during the so-called lost years, and again some years after the crucifixion. The recent documentary movie, Jesus in India, (, indicates that the evidence supporting these events just doesn’t go away. One may read about the findings of Swami Abhedananda, who in 1922 confirmed the validity of Notovitch’s findings and his translation of the manuscript at Hemis Monastery in Ladakh, thereby indicating how faulty Max Mueller’s attempted debunking of Notovitch had been. Another secondary attempt at such debunking, by Per Beskow in 1985, ignores Abhedananda’s findings and confirmation of Notovitch’s. His charges that were relevant, and those of Goodspeed also, have been refuted, e.g., see findings upset the status quo, and can therefore only be discussed by independent scholars, it seems. I wish it weren’t so. These are among the thoughts that come to my mind upon reading Ed Sanders’s Academic Autobiography.
