That's quite impossible to answer unless you assume a lot.
For example: you'd need to ASSUME that Jesus lived in the first place. The first written down accounts we have about his assumed live were written
almost 60 years after his assumed crucifiction. Most of what is written down in the bible was of an even later date. Also, note that before Jesus was
known there were similar stories about the "Son of God" born out of a virgin etc. - so, perhaps the Christians merely used the existing folklore to
project their "saviour" on. So, it's vague if he existed or not.
But let's ASSUME he existed (most scholars do). Then let's ASSUME he did walk the Earth roughly 2000 years ago. As a human. And he died. And then came
back - do you ASSUME reincarnation? If so, he'd probably be just born, ignorant, then grow up and have a life, then die again. We normally do not
remember our past lives (if that is possible at all).
There are exceptions, and some convincing cases exist that strongly suggest that reincarnation might exist (either that or some sort of collective
memory that some can tap in to). So, let's ASSUME a bit more - say we have this man "Jones" and he recalls having lived as Jesus.
He would be ignored, labeled a fruitcake. Only the very gullible would believe him.
So, if Jesus would return as a human being, it would go unnoticed. There are thousands that think they are a reincarnation of Napoleon, Alexander the
Great, some Egyptian king or Jesus. We simply ignore them.
