The if there is soul, there is something for sure. And Jesus brought dead alive according to Bible and cured blind and incapacitated if i remember correctly.
You don't believe that though, do you? It is clearly hagiography.
107 billion humans have lived and died, why would Lazarus be so special to be allowed to come back? And is he still alive? If not, why not?
When I first read the mustard seed story of Buddhism, I thought this is so much more profound, pragmatic and realistic than the hagiographical Lazarus myth.
You can come back as a swarm of frogs. Large amount of humans can share one and the same soul.

While this explanation was being given, there arose to Sakka the dustless, stainless Dhamma eye — "Whatever is subject to origination is all subject to cessation" — as it also did to [his following of] 80,000 other devas.
What does the following mean. Could be similar to hive mind. That said, the is Jesus story a fiction or not, it doesn't matter if i hold such possibilities above.
Why LAzarus came back, it could be Jesus donated some of its cultivated life essence..
Have you experienced something through cultivation and as a result you can use your mind in a certain way and the need relearn everything from start, thus the need for yet another human life to experience thing in a more sophisticated way.
to add the cherry to the top of the cake, i do believe in light-body, original templates of human body etc. Does this disqualify from reading Suttas and deriving inspiration from them? no, because i have access to Suttas, i take it as permission to read them too.
and to add the soul thing, you tune in on spot to the soul, so the incarnation could be not literally, but like if you tune into certain music you get to the soul and perhaps when at that moment you would die you could have a rebirth consciousness what sends you to deva world where is lots of musicians devas. And it doesn't have to be like that, there is also period between one life and another so at that period you can tune in and go to the appropriate destination.
