I don't believe everything I read about Buddha either. But I do believe that wisdom is universal. I'm sure there are many passages in the holy texts of Buddhism and Christianity that are similar in their message, but I feel no need to "go out of my way" to find them. I'm sure someone already has. Zen flesh, zen bones was my first book on Zen and I still find this story and the passage from St Matthew fascinating, which is why I wanted to share it. For me, the bible is a book, compiled in a different time and culture, by a large number of persons over a long period, with parts probably left out or altered, because the message didn't suit a certain time or a certain ruler. I have never read the whole bible. When I do, I will do my best not to read it literally, just like I wouldn't read a Sutra literally, but more like a poem, to try to decipher what wisdom it may contain. As others have already said, different paths for different people.
