No, Jesus never mentioned Vishnu.

Vishnu is just another imposter.

If that's how you want to interpret it within your dharmic beliefs then sure

But in actuality, no.

How? He's a clear example of God descending to earth to vanquish evil.

>>286956
Um, no. Jesus was a bodhisatta. He learned buddhism from the Essenes.

>>287006

Except for the part about actually vanquishing evil. In fact, he seems to have been vanquished by the evil.

Returning from the dead and saving everyone from the darkness in their own hearts sounds like vanquishing to me.

Evil will always lurk in the shadows, but it never fails to yield when met with light.

Besides, Vishnu had to descend multiple times when things got really bad.

Jesus is quite obviously Kalantaka, the resurrection is proof enough.

If someone understands the divine better by having particular gods who govern things, more power to them

There's 33 million gods, and at the same time only one.

Think of it like your Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
>>
>>287293
Most hindus don't say they're polytheistic since all of the gods are just aspects of one.

>>287006
Jesus is a different being, apart from God and the holy Spirit.

Yes. And according to mainstream Christianity, equivalent as well.

ITT: The worst kind of Hindu. He's one of those people that attempt to claim that anything good and spiritual is in reality just Sanatana Dharma. They like to claim people like Jesus and Buddha as incarnations of Vishnu as a subtle method of proselytization. This is similar to how Muslims will try to convert Christians by calling Jesus a Muslim who was really just following the path of Mohammed and the Quran.
>>
>>287725
This.
Except Jesus being a Musim is part of the official doctrine for all Muslims. Mo knew he had to make his new religion appealing to the largly Christian Middle East.

Or, y'know, Deities don't actually have names. Different doctrines all have their own ways of explaining and conveying that which does not adhere to the rules of logic. No single religion is the right religion, they merely convey that an idea (and by extension information) can be taken and used in conjunction with personal will.

Jesus wasn't an avatar of Vishnu. He was god realised though, like a yogi, that he was God himself, one with Brahman, like all atma.

All things are equal, yet unequal. They are equal in their equality. No snowflake displays the same fractal, no human is the same as another. Yet they're still all snowflakes, and they're still all humans. All things are inextricably linked through an all-encompassing oneness, this is something that cannot be denied as truth.

Christ and Krishna (9th avatar of Vishnu) certainly share a lot in common.

>I am the Self seated in the hearts of all creatures. I am the beginning, the middle and the end of all beings.
- Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 10 Verse 20

Compare to:
>I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”
Revelation 22:13

>A day of Brahmå consists of one thousand ages and his night also lasts for the same period.

Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 8 Verse 17

compare to:
> But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.
- 2 Peter 3:8

And many other quotes.

Followers of both probably do agree that both of those men did embody the principles of Absolute and would be called avatars of such. I still wouldn't equate Krishna and Christ as same person or even myth, considering those cults didn't even rise at the same time. In Hindu context, Jesus was more of an wandering ascetic/yogi when compared to Krishna.

and they aren't. Prabhupada himself said ISKKEKS aren't hindus.

Vaishnava perspective:

Jesus is a shakti-avesh avatar - a regular soul imbued with the omnipotent power of Krishna.

>>287293
There are polytheistic and monotheistic and atheistic Hindus. Hinduism isn't a single doctrine, it is a conglomeration of multiple philosophies and religions based on the Vedic texts.
