The parallels between Saint Issa and Jesus were remarkable, leading Notovitch to conclude that the manuscripts provided the account, absent from the Bible, of Jesus’ life between age 13 and 30. He published the story of his discovery in 1890 in Life of Saint Issa (English trans. The Unknown Life of Christ, 1895). According to Notovitch, the original Pali manuscripts of the life of Saint Issa were in the library of Lhasa in Tibet where the Dalai Lama resided.
