Also, remember to keep in mind that all information written down in various formats (Bible, Koran, etc.) is written from a certain perspective which we may or may not be aware of -- and may be either literal truth (as it appeared to the writer), analogy, or illustrative story to convey a point. In addition to this, writing as a form of communication evolved later, and thus early methods of communication were basically a sharing of stories, otherwise known as oral tradition. As anyone who has sat around in a family gathering (or any other gathering of people) knows, stories are never told exactly the same way, using the same words, from person to person or telling to telling. Parts are either added or left out, or changed due to various reasons -- person forgets, person gets confused, etc. These are the problems with using the Bible as literal history.
And, just to throw something else into the mix, and to illustrate that things can be interpreted in more than one way, folks can make an excellent case, using the Bible, that God and Jesus, are/were in fact, intelligent beings from another galaxy. It's all in how you look at it.
Bottom line -- we will never know. What we may be meant to take from all of the writings are key concepts to successfully living together on this planet. Perhaps we should ALL (the entire world), go back and re-read our guiding books and look for some answers. I think there's something we're all missing out on, judging from what's going on in the world today.

Herein is the Islamic description of the "Muslim Jesus" (Isa) according to the following Hadith:
Also, like Mormon theology, the "Jesus" of the Muslims is a polygamist according to one of the Islamic sects:( According to Islamic theology, Jesus will return to fight and kill anti-Christ, then dies after forty years.)
"The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: There is no prophet between me and him, that is, Jesus (peace_be_upon_him). He will descent (to the earth). When you see him, recognise him: a man of medium height, reddish fair, wearing two light yellow garments, looking as if drops were falling down from his head though it will not be wet. He will fight the people for the cause of Islam. He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizyah. Allah will perish all religions except Islam. He will destroy the Antichrist and will live on the earth for forty years and then he will die. The Muslims will pray over him."
(Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 37, Number 4310: Narrated AbuHurayrah)
Sorry - that is NOT a description of The New Testament Jesus nor is the one of the RCC that is accompanied in Heaven with his mother, Mary, where she co-reigns as "Queen of Heaven," "Mediatrix," Co-Redemptrix," "Advocate," and "helps souls get into Heaven"
Islamic theology teaches that Jesus will be married to 1000 wives.
"Allah, the Highest, revealed to Jesus:
'O Jesus, travel from one place to another
least you should be known and harmed
by My Might and My Glory.
I will let you marry a thousand Houris*
and I will make a feast for four hundred years for you.'

The RCC, like Mormons and Muslims are taught to believe in another gospel and another Jesus - completely different from the accounts of The New Testament Jesus.
God Did For Mankind What Abraham Was Going To Do For God.
The Muslims are taught to believe in a different Savoir, but at the same time they also start with Adam and Eve, and have the Cain and Able, and Seth in their writings, Now, where it starts to change interestingly enough is with the Son of Seth that carried on the line to Jesus, the name was different. close, but different.
Right now to clarify where the Son of Seth ended up, and a guess of who his wife might have been, I am also trying to look through the Torah to see if he is mentioned in greater detail there.
The Christian Bible really does not start tracking locations until Mattatha if you look at the Genealogy in Luke, or Abraham if you look at it in Matthew. Because, after Nathan, for some reason the two differ. I don't know why yet.
At any rate, This is going to take me time to even get a close guess, but at the same time I am rather enjoying the research. I do wish however that I or I knew someone that could take the old original writings and make sense of them, else, I am only counting on someones word that the translations are correct and true.

And something I found extremly interesting.
In my search, I looked into "The Book Of Shadows" which is the text from the Original Pagan Bible.
I found this in the first couple paragraphs/verses.
Adam Edam, Garden of Eden? close??Then came beasts and greater beasts and some lived and some died and some appeared from other beasts in differing form over a great time. One of these beasts was the beginning of men and the man was called himself Adam Edam. And when Adam Edam stood upright, walked upon the earth and gained reason, so was the beginning of humanity for he had within him good things, unlike other beasts who knew of nothing and had not feeling of mind as did he.
But what I really found perplexing is that once again, in the fourth reference, One Muslim, one Jewish one Christian and one Pagan, Adam was the first named human on earth.
Until this morning, I have never read any of the Book of Shadows, so I was almost surprised to discover this.

With the limited research that I did I got the site below. His travels and not mentioned in detail though. That would require to go to the middle eastern countries and getting access to sacred texts. I am waiting for a reply from a friend of mine who is a Rabbi in isreal. It may be awile since he is in England for an interfaith dialogue.
There are other sources that say his tomb is in the Baqa'a valley in lebanon.
Here is a link to a sites of the prophets and anyone else that is important(need to varify the site)
