The Historical Jesus…

For a man…who had 100’s if not 1000’s of people following him around awaiting a miracle…eg. the story of 2 fishes and 5 loaves that fed 5000…who raised the dead, walked on water, and healed the sick…

who was paraded around as a spectacle, tortured, crucified…and rose from the dead…

it is strange that there isn’t one non-partisan document or manuscript of the era…not one mention of any of this anywhere from any independent non-partisan source…from any culture, kingdom, living in that area…

Romans would have been fascinated by a miracle-man…they loved the supernatural…to be entertained…strangely, they seemed to have missed reporting this event in any of their records even though they were presumed, and stated as being, a large part of it…

in fact…Marcus Aurelius who was accused of the persecution of Christians and in very fact wrote about it…mentions that he was a reluctant participant…yet never mentions Jesus at all…

there is one seemingly out of place mention in the works of Josephus, the Historian of the Jews at the time…but that mention has long been considered an interpolation and not written by Josephus himself.

OK…so you have to have a certain amount of faith to believe in god…to a degree I can see the point…

and as a christian you have to have a certain degree of faith to believe in the messianic nature of Jesus…to a degree I can even see this point…

but what exactly is the point in making it difficult to even prove his existence…this serves no purpose…

even substantial proof that Jesus existed as a historical personage would not detract from needing to have faith in his messianic nature…

even several independent sources of miracles being performed would not in themselves prove his messianic nature…

even with proof of his existence and proof of miracles one would still need faith to believe he was a messiah…

outside of partisan sources…there is no evidence of Jesus ever existing…ever preforming miracles…ever being persecuted or crucified…

Herod…a major player…left no record of any such thing ever existing…neither did Pilate…nor any of their historians or record keepers…

John the Baptist is mentioned frequently…but no mention of a Jesus…

for a man who created such a stir in the old world…

you would think that there would exist at least a shred…a crumb…of independent non-partisan proof that he even existed…

and not just a construct of a religious or political movement of the time, during the time there were several such movements. After all…what better way of motivating a movement than to create a charismatic messianic leader to follow…especially during a time of occupation when the people are looking specifically for someone to lead them.
