There are scant few references to Jesus outside the New Testament. I thin only two or three at the most, and some of those are not accepted by most scholars as being genuine.<quoted text>
Too many references about Him from different sources for me to not believe He lived. But I believe He is the Son of God because I asked in prayer and received an answer from the Holy Ghost. Other than that, I have no proof. Only faith.
Still, I'm not on the bandwagon against historical Jesus. I don't have a strong opinion either way as I don't think either side has a case closed argument. If I was FORCED to pick a side I'd say he was not a real person or that he is based on several different people. But I usually don't make the argument either way.
I can't argue with your faith. I can argue that what you felt was not a ghost, but an emotion. I can argue that the burning sensation in your chest is something a lot of people feel about other religions, or none at all. But I can't argue with faith as faith is not a position of reason, but of subjective emotion.
