Hey there. I've already had this debate on ATS and elsewhere many, many times. All I can say is that much of that author's points are incorrect,
debunked, or have answers. They're on ATS as well as around the net. Things like the 'Chrestus' issue have already been addressed and the claim
that no external references were cited is also incorrect. Several times the Roman records were cited. It will be up to you to do the research and find
the truth. Sorry to be so brief but there are two reasons why it's not worth getting long-winded:
1). It's a spiritual blindness, therefore nothing I can do to help anyone see who doesn't want to see.
2). Those who claim Jesus never existed simply aren't worth debating in my humble opinion because it is so obvious he did exist.
I have come to the very sad conclusion that people are not about finding truth but instead about finding whatever it is that supports our comfort
zone. Those who deny Jesus' historicity do it for comfort's sake. At this point, I'm tired of haggling with the critics of Christianity because
they are not asking to learn. In fact, they are not asking anything. They just want to get on their soap box and preach. And when you thoroughly
debunk one of their arguments against Christianity to the point of humiliation, they're in another thread two days later using the exact same
People don't want to know the truth. They want to hide from it. It's a weird phenomenon and a sad fact dealing with people.
