The Council of Nicaea determined that Jesus was GOD. How much of an argument does one have to put forth to convincve the masses that the Council defined "Christ Mythicism"!
Anything that was written that suggested that Jesus was NOT GOD or clashed with their agenda was defined as HERESY. Do you know what they did with heretics and heretical writings?
Did you know that immediately after the Council issued their proclamation some 600 Roman temples were sacked and burned, along with their scrolls and artwork.
So yeah, the Council DID determine what went in and what didn't go into the Bible.
It was why the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Nag Hammadi HAD to be hidden.

NOT ONE single living scholar in the field of history has ever published a single peer reviewed work disputing the existence of Jesus.
The garbage of "Mythicism" is highly ridiculed and unsupported by modern historians.
Since then- Most historians (as in almost all...almost 100%...even the most skeptical liberal historians) have admitted that Jesus was a real person.
Academic consensus does not even waste time looking at Jesus mythicism for it has all been debunked and discredited for decades and decades.
