you have to remember that at that time peoples all over the world would of had there own saviours.
the reason why jesus is so important today to us etc... is just because christianity won over the people in europe, and europe has the foremost
countries ruling over the world.
i am saying it just could have been another, person somewhere else, but the powers that be at that time just used christianity for there own uses, and
throughout the last 2000 years europe etc... have certainly used christinanity for there own goals, not really to do with jesus at all. i.e you just
have to look at how the vatican is run through the ages.
i am sure christianity did not become the religion that jesus ultimately wanted, but it was the peoples of europe could do with religious views.
but with regard to your assessment that jesus might be a made up story etc... i say again that at that time many people and countries may have had
there own saviours, it is just that europe took to christianity that we know of jesus christ today.
