Um - didn't exist. The fact that this entire thread was dreamt up to promote Jesus - sad.
Well there was a first century roman historian (Tacitus) whom wrote there was a man named Chrestus who lived during the first century and commented about the superstitious Christians whom were named after Chrestus. Chrestus is latin for Christ. So no his name wasn't actually Jesus it was actually Christ or at least that's what this historian was informed about their leader, and so he recorded it.
A second century greek writer, Lucian of Samosata, said that the Christians did worship a man named Jesus and even at this time the Christians were looked upon like we look at cults today. So I have a hard time disbelieving a historian of the first century and a writer of the second century who recorded this and both of them think the Christians are nothing more than a looney toon cult. The question is not did he exist, the question is was he a messenger of a god/the god, or just another looney toon cult leader.
I did really enjoy reading the ops items listed but have doubts on any credibility of an FBI agent claiming this. I would guess someone with that much info would not be FBI, I don't even think any one CIA agent would posses that much knowledge. Sure someone somewhere does know the truth as mankind knows and understands it about nearly everything but I doubt it's more than just a couple of people.
No actually he did not exist - Your second historian has been proven a fake - sorry to burst the bubble. Again Chrestos i think you mean Kristos from the greek simply means annointed one - not Jesus.
Finally there are literally DOZENS of historians from the exact time, preceeding and directly afterwards who recorded all of this period - and yet the Son of GOd gets absolutely no mention the greatest miracle worked of all time gets not even a single side not in a single historical document - um - can anyone say GLARING IRREGULARITY ...
There is absolutely no documented evidence for Jesus to have existed whatsoever EXCEPT a fraudulent historical text - ALL of this is acknowledged by the Church.
Why is the American president the president of the world? America, as a country/nation isn't as old as say, China. Or Japan, or England. Well, a lot of countries, really. So what's the deal? Why America? There are far greater nations out there other than America- Why is it always America that has to be the center of attention? (Because most of these "theories" originate from Americans.)
