I am suprised no one has replied yet.
But here is a few examples of proof.
quote: Not even the tax collector ever wrote his name becaue he never exisited
.... I don't even know where to start. First of all, many tax collectors wrote down his name in their charts. Zacchaeus, the chief tax collector of
Jericho, had Jesus's name clearly written in his log. We have physical documents from the time that Zacchaeus was a living and breathing person. And
last time I checked, Matthew (a disciple of Jesus) was a tax collector himself. Matthew wrote an entire book based aroound Jesus's life.
quote: There are no first hand stories from anyone
Pontius Pilate, an famous Roman Official of the time, was the man who gave the final order to crucify Jesus. In Pontius Pilate's journal and log
book, Jesus is mentioned over a dozen times! Julius Caesar himself writes about Jesus and his widespread influence (Caesar and Jesus were both living
at the same time). Any other first hand accounts? How about all twelve of his disciples. They touched Jesus, heard Jesus, and knew Jesus personally.
Almost every one of them wrote an epistle or book about him, and these historical figures could not have been made up.
quote: They don't know where he is buried.
Jesus was crucified on a hill at Golgotha, near the west wall of Jerusalem. His body was most likely buried in a tomb nearby designated for people who
were crucified for breaking Roman law. As to when he was crucified, it was on a Friday on 0 B.C./A.D. That's right people, B.C. stands for Before
Christ and A.D. stands for After Death. Nowadays people call it Before Common Era as to not offend others.
quote: They don't know when he was born
Contrary to popular belief, Jesus was not born on Christmas. That's actually the birthday of the sun god Mithra. The bible tells us that Jesus was
born while the sheperds were out tending to the flocks and that kings visited him on the day of his birth bearing gifts. It's highly unlikely that
sheperds would be out with their sheep in the middle of winter, and that kings would travel hundreds of miles during the winter. I'm no expert, but
Jesus was probably born in the springtime.
As to physical evidence, I challenge you to find a shred of physical evidence that clearly tells us of a specific person that lived over two thousand
years ago. We do not even have the body of Julius Caesar, because the Roman custom was to burn corpses. The world back then is not like today. There
were no birth certificates, death certificates, big houses and digital documents everywhere that have a track of what you buy and where you go.
Compared to other people in the B.C. era, it is actually astonishing that we have so much evidence of Jesus's e
