Whether or not you believe all or any of the Bible, whether or not you believe in God, or that Jesus of Nazareth even existed, the Bible records words and actions that were attributed to Jesus, and things that the New Testament authors wrote about him. To say those words and events were not recorded is, as I previously stated, intellectual dishonesty.
I am not Hindu. It would be accurate to say there are specific things about that faith that I do not believe or agree with. But for me to attempt to tell a Hindu what is and what is not written in the Bhagavad Gita, what Krishna said or did not say to Prince Arjuna, would be ridiculous, as I have only read brief excerpts from the text and I am not truly familiar with any of it.
It's not surprising at all that some of the gospel narratives describe things Jesus said or did with no witnesses. That is within the nature of sacred texts - knowledge by divine revelation, visions, or writing records of oral traditions. Who witnessed the creation of the world, as recorded by any culture? Any Old Testsment events that occurred before Moses (according to tradition) recorded them in writing had to have been handed down as oral history or shown directly to the author by divine revelation.
