“The Japanese Testament of Esukirisuto”

According to the document, Jesus first came to Japan in a young At the age of 12 years, he became involved in sacred knowledge. IN The Bible says nothing, where Jesus acquired his knowledge, his young years are a white spot for Christian biographers. But in The “Japanese Testament” describes in detail how Christ spent 11 years in Etchu Province, where he studied Japanese culture, language, literature, philosophy led by a holy teacher.

At the age of 30, Jesus returned to Judea, where his teaching was rejected, and the teacher himself was sentenced to death. However death on the younger brother of Jesus, Isukiri, who voluntarily occupied place of Christ.

Jesus escaped with several disciples in 4 years of wandering crossed Siberia, reached Alaska by water, from there again to ship sailed to Japan. A donkey in the village of Harei (now part of Shingo) and married a Japanese woman who bore him three daughters. I lived decent life, passed away at the age of 106 years.

Despite such a terrific story, there were no one Christian. Descendants of Christ from the Savaguchi and Takenuchi clans were proponents of Japan’s traditional syntonism and honored Jesus as the founder of a clan and nothing more.

Takenuchi noted a strange custom among residents: to draw on his forehead at newborns cross and decorate with a cross cradles of babies. So residents Shingo guarded their children from the attacks of evil spirits. Probably this strange custom is all that remains in the village from their teachings ancestor.

Tomb of Jesus No. 6

Shingo Village is not the only alternative burial site Of Christ. Only in Jerusalem there are two of them, not counting the “official” in Church of the Holy Sepulcher. There is still a grave in the Indian state of Kashmir, There is a version of the burial of Jesus in France. So the japanese burial is not something special.

However, up to 10,000 people come to Shingo every year for Christmas. Christians from all over Japan. And over a year more than 40,000 visit the village human. There are among them both true pilgrims and just curious tourists.

Today, a cross is installed on the grave, a fence around it. Beside there is another, also marked with a cross, in which according Tradition Jesus buried the ear of the executed brother and the hair of his mother Mary. A small museum appeared in the village. Of course, the residents of Shingo make money on tourists, but agree, it would be strange if they did not do it.
