It apppears the list is growing on those that don't buy Jesus as god. A pretty big group that formed in Europe in the 1500's called the Unitarians
didn't buy the whole Jesus is god thing due to surviving the Cross issue.
So, now we have a long long list of people and groups that don't buy Jesus is god, and these days it is the Masons, The Diests, the Unitarians, The
Jefferson Bible followers, all these folks that don't support the Jesus died theme and do support Jesus was just nursed back to health with
Essene/Therapute healing methods.
It would appear there is little to support most of the Christians positions except thin air.
Then neither Islam nor most of the Jewish folks buy the Jesus died on the Cross thing.
But, Constaintine liked the idea being told that the Jewish did kill Jesus, and the book Constaintine's Sword speaks to this.
Then comes Hitler's views along with the Catholics that the Jewish were the Christ Killers. So, all those that bought into the theme that the Jewish
had Jewish killed were techncially wrong. Not that they didn't want Jesus killed, they just didn't succeed, and he was revived.
There is this theme that those that tell the story that Jewish Killed Jesus were the prime drivers for the Holicaust per the Jewish in Europe.
Thus, Unitarians adhere to strict monotheism, and maintain that Jesus was a great man and a prophet of God, but not God himself.
They believe Jesus did not claim to be God, and that his teachings did not suggest the existence of a triune God. Unitarians believe in the moral
authority, but not necessarily the divinity of Jesus. Their theology is thus opposed to the trinitarian theology of other Christian denominations
