Re: non-Christians question about Jesus ?
I have a question (serious if you don't mind)
I was wondering how many of you believed that there was a actual person named Jesus (New Testament) that was portrayed in the the bible?
Leaving out if he was the actual Son of God or not.
The fact that there isn't any evidence for 'biblical jesus' in and of itself didn't convince me there never was such a person.
Knowledge of the origins of christianity certainly sent me in that direction.
Knowledge of other, older, parallel god myths to me serves as evidence against 'biblical jesus', as do the apparent 'holes' in the writings of historians from the 'time of jesus'
I would like to believe jesus actually existed. I'd like to believe hercules actually existed too.
But the evidence just doesn't show that.
