On the flat top of a steep hill in a distant corner of northern Japan lies the tomb of an itinerant shepherd who, two millennia ago, settled down there to grow garlic. The rest of the world knows him as Jesus Christ. According to amusing local folklore, that was his kid brother, Isukiri, whose severed ear was interred in an adjacent burial mound in Japan. Every year 20, or so pilgrims and pagans visit the site, which is maintained by a nearby yogurt factory.

Two blind men healed Matt. A Mute Man Speaks Matt. From whom do the kings of the earth take customs or taxes, from their sons or from strangers? And when you have opened its mouth, you will find a piece of money; take that and give it to them for Me and you. Jesus Heals Many.
Weird Legend of Jesus in Japan
In Christianity , disciple primarily refers to a dedicated follower of Jesus. This term is found in the New Testament only in the Gospels and Acts. In the ancient world, a disciple is a follower or adherent of a teacher.
The Jesus bloodline refers to the proposition that a lineal sequence of descendants of the historical Jesus has persisted to the present time. The claims frequently depict Jesus as married, often to Mary Magdalene , and as having descendants living in Europe, especially France but also the UK. Differing and contradictory Jesus bloodline scenarios, as well as more limited claims that Jesus married and had children, have been proposed in numerous modern books. Some such claims have suggested that Jesus survived the crucifixion and went to another location such as France, India or Japan. While the concept has gained a presence in the public imagination, as seen with Dan Brown 's best-selling novel and movie The Da Vinci Code that used the premise for its plot, it is generally dismissed by the scholarly community.
