Crucifixion was a very popular method back then, so no wonder why we read about it,
As popular as a messiah of virgin birth, dying for others ''sins'' was..... before Jesus...
None of them was an actual prophecy, none of them came true
Christ is not a name, it's a greek epithet, the one that has the charisma,
So in that sense, there where many Christs throughout history
Josephus (the only accurate historical account), just tells us about a group called christians who believed in a guy called Jesus Christ, that's it ,
no first person witness account's, no historical evidence at all, nothing,
He just described the christians of his time and what they believed, where are the evidence of Yeshua, or Jesus as the greeks called him?
The Apostles already had in mind the prophecies of the Jew tradition (Isaiah,Zechariah,etc) when they made up the story about Jesus,.
It's not a coincidence, they wanted their new propagated religion, to fulfill the prophecies of the old
The biggest evidence we have that it was all a lie is that orthodox Jews of that time didn't buy into these lies, and for them their messiah described
by the prophets (Isaiah,Zechariah,etc) hasn't come yet.
Then we have some christians that say the prophecies of the Jews were fulfilled with Jesus,
Who are you christians, that you think you know the Jew tradition better than the Jews themselves?
If the son of god had really came to earth, I would expect some people to notice, especially the
Jews that live there at that time,
Instead we have the first ''account's of Jesus 35 years after the time he supposedly died by some unknown suspicious guys self claimed to be the
apostles, and the first christians nearly 60 years after.
If that doesn't qualify as charlatanism then I don't know what does....
If we take time to analyze all the stories, even Scientology sounds less made up than christianity!
