Jesus fulfilled the prophecies.
The group of people who knew the prophecies and claimed that Jesus did not fulfill them will be judged harshly during the wrath of the Great Tribulation. They will have to go into the abyss for all time.

If they were eyewitnesses, why do they all tell a different story?

Don't hurt yourself thinking that one over, dusty. As your pastor says, "It's better not to think at all."

Jesus never existed. He's a myth, based on older myths.

Of course. They were right, IF Jesus ever tried to pretend that he was somehow equal to the God of the Bible, it would have been blasphemy, a sin worthy of stoning.
However, that is not what happened. That was invented later, by the authors who were trying to spread their religion in Rome, so they could not tell the truth and make the Romans look bad. Rather, since the Temple had already been destroyed, making the Jews the scapegoat for the death of Jesus, the authors could suck up to Rome.
The myth of Jesus being "the" Son of God, or even a god himself, was a later addition, not invented until long after Jesus was rotted in his grave.
And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.

It's still nothing but myth. You just don't want to understand that, do you?

It took me a moment to recognize that as the hallucination of John. Too bad for you that it does nothing to help your point...

The author of GoJohn lied.
As I understand it, there is NOT ONE miracle attributed to Jesus that had not been previously ascribed to one of the prophets in the Old Testament.
Oops. Surely you do not think this passage in 2 Kings is a miracle of a healing of one born blind?
2 Kings:16 And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.
17 And Elisha prayed, and said, Lord, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.
Liam, the miracle here is that there were guardians on horses and chariots of fire which were unseen to the humans until God opened their spiritual eyes.

Actually, the gospels are only attributed to "Mark", "Matthew", and "John".

Luke has been acknowledged as his author, unfortunately, Luke is a third hand source, so it may not be as reliable as the others.

Luke if you read it contextually, is almost verbatim of Mark, as is Matthew, so it is suspicious that is an original story, but just one that was copied.

One could also include that Luke contains many of the GoThomas sayings, so Thomas may also been a source for Luke when he wrote it.

Nope; just an hallucination. Or an outright lie in order to frighten people into submisison, take your pick.

Proof that you do not believe in a god; you believe in your buybull. Your "god" is nothing more than paper and ink.

How pathetic is that?

John 9:32 Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind.
then again it could mean that the dude was just narrow minded and refused to see what was in front of him. until another human said something to him that helped him see things in a different way.

or it could have been conversion disorder.

Read the WHOLE passage IN CONTEXT:

2 Kings 6:18 And when they came down to him, Elisha prayed unto the LORD, and said, Smite this people, I pray thee, with blindness. And he smote them with blindness according to the word of Elisha.
...
6:20 And it came to pass, when they were come into Samaria, that Elisha said, LORD, open the eyes of these men, that they may see. And the LORD opened their eyes, and they saw; and, behold, they were in the midst of Samaria.

Elisha healed the whole host. GoJohn HAD to claim that Jesus healed someone "born" blind, GoJohn was attempting to create a false Messiah out of an itinerant preacher.
