    Here’s my take:

    No one knows. He was probably just a guy.

    Proof is always a good thing.

        @five2one but you don’t really KNOW what ‘he said and did’ because all those stories have been passed down and translated over and over again

        remember the kids game where you tell a story and then it gets retold down the line, and it ends up being a totally different story?

    He existed. His teachings seem to be Buddhist, and so he was teaching Buddhism to the Jews. Where did he learn about Buddhism??? Where was he in his youth??? I have no idea. His teachings became the Christian Faith.

    He is said to have died on the cross, after horrible punishments for his teachings, and for not saying that he was the king of the Jews. The “King of the Jews” title belongs only to King David. But Jesus would not say that he was the king of the Jews. Therefore, he was beaten and punished, then made to carry his cross to the place where he was hung on the cross to die.

    He supposedly died and was removed from the cross and entombed. He was carefully washed and wrapped in a shroud. A stone was rolled over the door of the tomb to close it. After three days, Mary Magdalen visited the tomb and found it open and Jesus was gone. She spoke to a man said to be Jesus, but she did not recognize him as Jesus. Then, for 40 days, Jesus hung out and appeared to his apostles while the gathered in hiding, while they were out fishing, and he walked on the water. Then they saw him arise into the sky. He is believed to be the very Son of God. He is waiting —- wherever —- and it is said that he will return to separate the sheep from the goats —- among the people. Then, he will lead the people for 1000 years.He will return as The Glory of God.

    It was predicted that he would return in 1844. Many figured it out. While the world is still waiting for his return, meanwhile, in the land where Jesus was from, the Baha;i Faith began and our founder came in 1844 and is Baha’u’llah —— Which translates to:
    Baha means Glory
    “u” means of
    Allah is God

    Baha’u’llah means The Glory of God. His teachings are like a continuation of the teachings of Jesus. He doesn’t have to hide his teachings in parables, as Jesus had to do. So, the teachings of Baha’u’llah (Glory of God) are translated into plain language and easy to understand.

    Is Baha’u’llah the return of Jesus?

    I don’t really know for sure.

        @five2one That is what the hard-core Baha’is think. But, I sit back and see. I don’t look at the world with rose-colored glasses. I will live my life as a good person and when I die I will see if it was the right path. If there is no God, if Jesus was just a man that was a good teacher, and if Baha’u’llah was just a man who believed in equality of women and education being good for the advancement of humans, and justice being the best of all things —– and he survived 40 years of prison for those beliefs (because he was teaching this in a Muslim society, who believed that anyone who believed those things deserved death.) If Baha’u’llah’s message was false, then I will not have lost anything by following. I don’t think we can go wrong by living a peaceful life and being kind. Do I believe that Baha’u’llah is the return of Jesus? Well, I guess I am a doubter. I look at the fruits of that Baha’i tree and see only goodness coming from equality, education, justice, love of mankind, and peace. Jesus taught the same lessons and so I believe in following them.
        Baha’u’llah also taught that your body will serve you better if you don’t abuse it with mind altering drugs and chemicals.
