As many/most of my visitors are non-believers I am going to take it as a given that you don’t believe the character Jesus of Nazareth, as described in the gospels, ever existed, and that you consider this character to be a work of narrative fiction.
What I am interested in is whether you believe there ever was any individual behind the bible character, or was he created from whole cloth?
There are so many aspects of this tale to consider it is difficult to know where to start.
Furthermore, as more and more evidence accumulates it does not point to an historical character but rather points away from one.
What do you think? And why.
