<quoted text>no,there are not. people study the history of the time...they look at the history of say pontious pilate and can see that there is no way he would have let the jews decide jesus' fate. no way they would have let his body go, his bones are in the pile with the rest of the traitors executed on golgotha.
this si what historians of the time can tell by studying the era, the records and what the bible says...
see? isn't learning fun!
As governor of Judaea, Pontius Pilate faced a conflict of interests between the Roman Empire and the Sanhedrin Jewish council. When Pontius asked Jesus if he was King of the Jews, he claimed that Jesus embraced the title, which he never did. This accusation was considered an act of treason by the Roman government. According to some sources, Pontius Pilate collaborated with Jewish leaders—who viewed Jesus's claim to power as a political threat—in prosecuting Jesus.

Statements like that will have people questioning your authority.

Are you an authority in mathematics, or just another run of the mill authority?

The lack of adding a name, or not putting the text in quotes, could lead one to believe you are claiming to be the authority.

Nice comeback with the asylum thingy. Never seen that used before.
Will you next suggest I see a shrink, or perhaps take my medications?

It wasn't the statement that was in question, it was your insinuation of being an authority that I questioned.

But you already knew that.

yet Lilate never did that with any of the people caliming that title before him, did he? why would this one be different? many of those previous messiahs claiming t o be king of the jews had far larger follwings than jesus.

your myth doesn't stand up to historical fact. pilate executed thousands with a flick of a quill, there is no way he would have me with any of them let alone their accusers... this whole story was created when they preached to the gentiles....the romans. how do you get romans to join your cult when they killled your supposed saviour? say the jews did it!!!

try more than a two second google search before you attempt to talk about issues you have no more knowledge in than what your sunday school teacher told you in third grade....

that was his job ..to dispense punishment ...

In all four gospel accounts, Pilate lobbies for Jesus to be spared his eventual fate of execution, and acquiesces only when the crowd refused to relent. He thus seeks to avoid personal responsibility for the death of Jesus. In the Gospel of Matthew, Pilate washes his hands to show that he was not responsible for the execution of Jesus and reluctantly sends him to his death. The Gospel of Mark, depicting Jesus as innocent of plotting against the Roman Empire, portrays Pilate as reluctant to execute Jesus. In the Gospel of Luke, Pilate not only agrees that Jesus did not conspire against Rome, but Herod Antipas, the Tetrarch of Galilee, also finds nothing treasonable in Jesus' actions.[7] In the Gospel of John, Pilate states “I find no guilt in him [Jesus]” and he asks the Jews if Jesus should be released from custody.
