"When Jesus comes, my Tao (way) will be like a lamp without oil”
Shakyamuni, who eventually became the lord Buddha, was born a prince in
However, his posterity somehow distorted the core teachings of Shakyamuni and exploited them into setting up a religion. Buddhists in Korea have apparently been teaching that Jesus went to India 2000 years ago, received the teachings of Buddha, and went back to give rise to Christianity. However, if this was true, there should be the teaching of Shakyamuni in the Bible. But the truth is there is no evidence of any Buddhist teaching in the entire book of the word of God.
In the Korean Buddhist teachings, there are the books of Chunsoo (千手經), the Keumkang (金剛經), the Prajna-para-mita (般若心經), the Avatamska (華嚴經), Tripitaka (大藏經) and Ramaka Buddhist Doctrines (佛說羅摩伽經: Namada).

Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by whom we must be saved, Acts 4:12.
This same Buddhist prophecy about Jesus is also found in Japanese Buddhist scriptures of Daisho Shinsoo Tripitaka. This copy, in fact, is the original of the Korean Namada sutra version. It was translated by the renowned Japanese Buddhist priest Sung-gyun of
“When Jesus comes, my Tao (way) will be like a lamp without oil” is not just another saying but an actual scripture found in many versions of Buddhist teaching including the firsthand copies of Sanskrit and
