The core of Jesus' teachings are in the sermon on the mount (or on the mound, if you're a baseball fan) and the data he tried to tell his crew just before his last night. Those, and his other words. Some of them may have been said by other great teachers, and having Jesus find the same truths isn't unusual at his level. Good fellow well met.
He seems to have been a real person, judging from scholarship and historical tracking of the writings. Maybe lots of his early life and the wows of his birth and all that were made up or plagiarized by overenthusiastic followers/writers/hanger-ons. But for the most part, check out his spoken data in language that does a good job of communicating it.

Did you ever think maybe these others plagiarized judeo-Christian scripture?
Lol even if your info is true, aren't the earliest buddhist writtings coming from after Christianity already started?
You seem very ill informed about religion for someone who has studied it for 10 years;
Such is easily indicated by the fact: you don't realize the bible never claims a date of birth for Jesus (nor do any Christian churches I've ever been to), the God of the bible is known as El and that is his one of his names and in the bible story with God and job, the original manuscripts before being translated into English list the Hebrew word for God as El.
Can you please provide the sources of information of where these pre bible stories come from and can you please include the dates which they were written.
Same goes to the guy talking about how horus was born of the Virgin Isis.... lol seriously where do you guys do your so called "research"? Which Egyptian texts or artifacts depict this? If you're gonna tell me the book of the dead (lmao) please tell me which chapter or page it's under.
Christians only need apologetics for there attitude and lack of love and truth, people do plenty to bolster faith in scriptures because none have a solid case against them.

The natural world came long before any book or myth. There were no stories 10, 20, 30 thousand years ago. Man plagiarized these truths then weaved them into their myths, not the other way around as you suggest. God didn't mirror myths into the natural world, man did the exact opposite.

Angels are beings of energy from another dimension. Since science (which has been rewritten multiple times to suite our emotional needs) is based on mankind's limited observation, which is restricted to a 4-D realm, you have no justification for such a childish comment. Try looking up one day and ask yourself if physical life all there is.

the same WORD ressonates throughout all history and to understand the way the worlds works one has to let go of a scientific methoed that fails to explain how time exist in other realms and diminsions as well as ours. In short we do not have all the necessary tools or information to see the whole yet allthough if we go by science we get a picture that fits but does not truely portray how things came into being and how things are connected. To gain this understanding would cause our death and the best way to live is by faith because we can't handle the truth.

See that is why the Church (Catholic) called it "plagiarism in anticipation". Satan and all his devils knew JC the younger (JC the elder being Julius) was on his way, and to "test the faith of every one" these older examples were seeded in history. Now to be fair there are no exact matches to Christ. But there are no exact matches to each other and its a theme that can be seen.
