Ben Stada was executed in Lydda, not Jerusalem, and the Roman governor at the time was Felix, not Pilate. It's also a century after the execution of Jesus. This comparison is dismissed by most Hebrew scholars.Yet not a word was written about him for decades? And the story of his life kept changing even centuries later?
Again it seems a man rising from the dead and walking into Jerusalem with hundreds of risen from the grave famous Jews would have gotten some attention right?
Christianity started like all mystery cults at the time. It even follows the formula down to the letter. What's even funnier is all the errors in the NT myth when it tries to refer to the Torah! Hahaha!
This shows the NT writers were poorly educated on Jewish writings and history. Humiliatingly bad in fact.
Again we have secular proof for Jesus Ben Strada the Egyptian magician who was caught and executed but not a shred for this so called Jesus of Nazareth who raised the dead! The Egyptian magic man with his slight of hand tactics garners more secular notice than your precious Jesus who receives none whatsoever. Fact.
And the gospels don't match up.
And the letters of so called Paul come before the gospels when they should come way after.
And not even Jesus' own followers didn't bother to write about him.
You'd think one of the multitudes of people he supposedly healed or raised from the dead would have chipped in for a statue or scroll or something...
Now as to your assertion that nobody wrote about Jesus during his own time is nothing more than a speculative assumption. If you're going to make that assertion then you need to show some evidence or a plausible argument to support your claim.
If you want to really examine the probability of anyone writing about Jesus in His own lifetime, it might be helpful to start by looking at other figures from the first century. But when we look at them, we must consider a number of factors.
1) Jerusalem was not highly regarded by Roman authorities as a center of culture and intellectual growth. It was troubled by revolts, a strict mono-theistic culture, and was generally regarded with contempt. The only extra-biblical historical account of any contemporary of Jesus from first century Judea was Pontius Pilate, John the Baptist, and James, the brother of Jesus, and even then it was written by Josephus decades later. And that's not even the TF.
2) We don't know what happened to any written material that might have existed. We're talking about 2,000 years here. How long is a piece of papyrus supposed to last? What's the shelf life of animal skin scrolls? We have precious few writings from the first century Roman province of Judea.
3) Factor in the 66-70 AD revolt and subsequent destruction of Jerusalem at the hands of the Romans and let's ask how much of the city was burned. The temple was destroyed, and because the temple was also where written records were kept, is it any surprise to logically reason that such contemporary writings (assuming they existed) would have been lost to the flames?
So what are your thoughts on this?
