You got the spin.<quoted text>There are NO CONTEMPORARY account for Jesus outside of the bible. Everything written about Jesus was done so decades after his supposed life and by hearsay, stories passed on over many years. No records in the Roman archives of anyone named Jesus being crucified, and they LOVED to keep tract of those they crucified. Many noted biblical scholars will tell you his existence is unlikely. There may well have been a person with that name roaming the country side preaching, there were actually a number of people with that name, but the Jesus you want to prop up, the mythical being who performed miracles and was crucified and then magically floated up to a mythical heaven, most like never existed. Sorry just another children's story, like the Noah flood. Some of us grow out of childish beliefs, others........well
You should work for Obama. Maybe you could sneak in his cigarettes.
The authoritative scholarship on this question resides with Dr. Bart Ehrman.
He says the record proves Jesus existed.
And he's not a Christian.
