Alexander the Great and Christianity
One interesting argument about Alexander the Great and his influence on Christianity is as follows:
In conclusion, the influence of the mighty Macedonian monarch, Alexander the Great, upon the Christianity that came about nearly three hundred years after his death is extremely palpable. By conquering more territory than any one person had before, utilizing the concept of Hellenization and spreading his Greek heritage to those conquered territories, introducing the concept of a divine savior king, and by contributing to the advancement of many of the Greek philosophies which found their way into the New Testament, he did much to shape the foundation of a religion that he would not live long enough to practice. Though Eugene Borza gives him the appellation of "world figure", somehow this does not seem enough (Borza 2). Given that this great military ruler, conqueror and killer of millions can be attributed with much of the basis for a religion whose core message is steeped in peace, perhaps a better sobriquet for Alexander would be "an icon of irony".

So, we may think that Christ Jesus also traveled from Nazareth to Greece and Rome, or to Egypt or otherwise to Babylon if not as far as to India.
Anyway, it is very mysterious that until He started His holy mission, He had not performed any great miracles in His home town where He is supposed to have been living as a young carpenter.
Christ Jesus must have worked great wonders somewhere in those areas without witnesses of Israelites before He started His holy mission when He is believed to have grown up to be about 35 years old, provided that He was born in 4 BC and died in AD 33.
Finally, Christ Jesus never mentioned Alexander the Great even in His parable.
