All Glories to Srila Prabhupada

I have been studying the Bhavishya Purana online for the past few weeks and it is to my surprise that it contains alot of knowledge regarding Christ, written thousands of years before his birth. I learned that Christ is a reincarnation of a devotee of Vishnu, Prince Dhruva Rishi, who incarnated on Earth to spread the word of God. I also read he worshipped The Supreme Lord as his father, and thus receiving his name Isha Putra (Son of God). Other's believe he is the avatar of Vishnu, but i personally don't believe this because Swami Prabhupad himself stated Christ was Shyaktavesha avatar (a "man" empowered by Krishna to spread the word of God and perform miracles).

If you want Prabhupad's lecture it's here:

It amazes me how mislead the world has become of this Devotee. As I read further, I learned that the "Second coming of Christ" is actually Lord Kalki, 10th avatar of Vishnu, who incarnates on Earth at the end of Kali Yuga to establish Satya Yuga. There was mention of wars and destruction before this happens, as mentioned in the Bible..

Can anyone confirm and expand on this? I'm not sure if my sources are correct or not. I plan to buy all the volumes of Bhavishya Purana but the translations are hard to find. I'd appreciate it. Hare Krishna.

    Vyasa is believed to have written all of them, but it seems that some of them have suffered tampering over the ages. All the predictions in the Bhavishya Purana are from 1865 or earlier. Up until this time, this text was maintained in manuscript form, which was easy enough to interpolate. In 1865, the Naga Press published this text and once printed, interpolations were no longer possible.

    The Bhavishya Purana also speaks about the British invasion of India and Queen Victoria. So its very likely that there were many later additions to that Purana. Srimad Bhagavatam, Bhagavad Gita and other Upanishads were all frequently commented upon by various acharyas so they stay undistorted, but the same can't be said about all puranas.

    Yes Lord Jesus is an empowered incarnation of Lord Krishna, it could be Dhruva or may even be Prahlad.
