Forbes, David James, "A Christian Apologetic to a Buddhist Christ" (2009). Masters Theses. 120.
This is a paper that expands on the concept that Jesus may have been a Buddhist "bodhisattva". It then gives a Christian apologetic as to why this cannot be true. This is accomplished by referencing the historical origins of Christianity and the differences between the lives of a bodhisattva and Jesus Christ.
