Did Jesus study Buddhism ??????

After reading part of the Gospel of St Thomas i,m beginning to think he did. I would be interested to hear what others think. I am going to read more of Thomas,s Gospel and try and learn more about this very mind provoking topic.

Yes, he visited the East before his Holy Land ministry.

And of course certain spiritual truths are just that, spiritual truths and as such are common elements in all religions of the Light.

"Did Jesus study Buddhism???" Wasn't that the question.

Yes it is the question, but Jesus, Buddhism and Thomas are NOT religions.

Spiritual truths are eternal and universal, that's what I meant. Each Master or teacher will put his own individualised take on a truth i.e. Jesus's 'As you sow' is his individualised take on the Buddhist Karma, or Cause and Effect. Same thing, just packaged differently.
