This, of course, assumes the whole thing isn't a story made up by some Jewish guys trying to undermine the authority of the Roman Empire. I'm really
at a loss here. Why do so many people take this at face value without any proof whatsoever?
Actually the first accounts of Jesus are by Paul, formerly Saul of Tarsus, and the Jesus he describes has little in common with the Jesus we know
about today but people liked Paul's message as explained in this video:
so eventually people filled in the blanks about Jesus that Paul left in his writings. The interesting thing is, how many characteristics Jesus has in
common with Horus after the blanks were filled in:
Some people wonder if all those similarities are just coincidence. But it is interesting that Paul says so very little about the life of Jesus even
though he wrote over 80,000 words about him, we have to wonder why.
If I were Paul and wrote 80,000 words about Jesus, it seems to me like one of the coolest things Jesus did was walking on water, so I would find it
virtually impossible to not mention that at all about Jesus, nor mention any other miracles he performed, yes Paul didn't mention them.
