Thirty years is more than a generation, especially then. And most of the NT was written MORE than 30 years after the fact, even a large portion of The Gospel of John, according to Scholars, some of whom doubt he wrote any of it. If he did write any, he did so as an old man recalling events of long ago, through a prism of cult and community that had already grown up around the original legend.<quoted text>

Believe it if you like, but there is absolutely nothing there that meets any criteria of objective plausibility.
I personally know old men and women today, who even 20 years ago were relating some of the miraculous actions of Mr L Ron Hubbard. And believe ME - THEY still believe IT. Healing, telepathy, even teleportation of the body. You would not buy it for ONE MINUTE, but you buy the same hokum because its wrapped in the fuzzy glow of antiquity.
