I think everything I've written on this association is here on the forum. Do a search using the keywords Paul and Lazarus and see what comes up. The association is largely made by linking both Paul and Lazarus to Simon Magus.
There was a really good thread on the Caesar's Messiah forum on Paul and Simon Magus with a link to an on-line book that makes a scholarly comparison.
I seem to recall that Laurence Gardner mentions that the tonsure of monks derives from the "hairstyle" of one of the early cult leaders, I think it was the Magus. Paul of course also was bald but with a tuft of hair in the front.
