Ms. Murdock's claims that Krishna is so similar to Jesus that Christianity must have borrowed from Hinduism?
Dr. Edwin Bryant, Professor of Hinduism at Rutgers University is a scholar on Hinduism. As of the writing of this paper, he has just translated the Bhagavata-Purana (life of Krishna) for Penguin World Classics and is currently writing a book to be titled, In Quest of Historical Krishna. When I informed him that Ms. Murdock wrote an article claiming that Krishna had been crucified, he replied,
"That is absolute and complete non-sense. There is absolutely no mention anywhere which alludes to a crucifixion."(22)
He also added that Krishna was killed by an arrow from a hunter who accidentally shot him in the heel. He died and ascended. It was not a resurrection. The sages who came there for him could not really see it.(23)
