A ‘myth’ is ‘a story about superhuman beings of an earlier age.’ So, was there a real Jesus? It would seem by many that Jesus may not have been who you were taught to believe he was.
To most, the idea that Jesus was simply a ‘myth‘ is unthinkable.Well, in the time of Christopher Columbus, it was completely unthinkable that the earth was round. At that time the entire world believed the earth was flat. That handed down belief was there for thousands upon thousands of years and no way would anyone believe it was not true. Or was it simply a handed a down myth?
It appears quite certain to many that Christ is a mythical character. An invented one. One discovers that this story is a story like many others before it. They believe it is not a factual representation of a Jewish man, 2,000 years ago. Looking at the FACTS, it could appear quite certain that Jesus Christ is a mythical character based on the other numerous gods and heroes of the ancient world and was in fact…invented.
Yes, the stories of Jesus have been around for thousands of years and to this day no one really KNOWS if he was who we are taught to believe he was. All we have are thousands of years of oral and so many translated copies of copies of ancient writings from men who did not know Jesus so they wrote from handed down stories of him…which is not PROOF he was who we think he was.
Remember that most of the ancient writers had no PROOF, other than their belief. Belief from the ‘opinions’ of those before them. These ancient writers got their beliefs about Jesus from stories after his death. These stories where the handed down stories of those before them. Handed down stories like the ‘flat earth.’
Could our Jesus Christ be something invented and was not the person who he said he was. The Son of God? Not the real ‘Son of God because he was not the first to be and claim all he did. The fact is and the PROOF is…. that everything that Jesus said or did was already said or done by the Buddha, Krishna and many other gods.
CNN’s Legon feels compelled to write that “...most scholars agree that Jesus existed,” while stating that there is no evidence for such a belief! Hence, these scholars who believe in a “historical Jesus” do so without any reason or evidence whatsoever, except that they have been told he did and have seemingly fearfully followed consensus .” The only place Jesus can be found is in the New Testament.
Earl Doherty writes, “Christian documents outside the Gospels, even at the end of the first century and beyond, show no evidence that any tradition about an earthly life and ministry of Jesus were in circulation.” No one has ever had any physical evidence to support a historical Jesus; no artifacts, dwelling, works of carpentry, or self-written manuscripts.”
“Anyone wanting to believe Jesus lived and walked as a real live human being must do so despite the evidence, not because of it” –C. Dennis McKinsey, The Encyclopedia of Biblical Errancy) critic (
Bottom line. Did the Bible Jesus really exist?
