What proof is there Jesus Christ was even real?
Let me confront your belief system, by stating:
Jesus did not exist.
That’s right Xian, Jesus Christ did not exist.
Go ahead - prove me wrong!
What proof can you offer me that would make me believe Jesus of Nazareth was ‘a real person from history’ & not just someone from the pages of a book, I consider mostly fictional?
So let’s forget about Jesus as the messiah, being The Son of God etc, basically anything written in the gospels.
Those texts in The Bible were not eye-witness reports of Jesus anyway, composed anecdotally well after his supposed time on earth.
I am after ‘3rd party’ validation of his life.
So it's contemporary historical reports from neutral sources that talk of a Jesus of Nazareth, outside The Bible, I want.
I don’t think I’m asking for much here, given this is a major figure in history, and there’s over a billion people who support the proposition that not only he existed, but he was ‘the Son of God’.
Written stories must therefore abound, stories of his life and miracles must surely be part of regional folk-law?
Proving ‘Jesus Christ the historic figure’, should be an easy task.
A piece of piss.
So someone ‘of faith’ please give me evidence that a person we now call Jesus Christ existed and was not imaginary – without using scriptural references.
