Of course not. That was before Constantine, the Father of Christianity.

From what I’ve seen and heard from Dr. Ehrman, he actually does believe there was a historical person… I tend to side with Richard Carrier, though on this one. It seems more likely to me that there wasn’t an actual man.

I don’t think this is true. I have heard of historical documentation of a man at this time , over there, spiritual leader, executed.
I need to find that documentation.

Yep… look hard Sam. Wish hard too… 🙂

Actually, there is more and more evidence that “christianity” was developed by the romans at the time of Caesar Augustus, it was developed as psychological warfare to bring order and control to the various fragmented tribes and clans of Judea. Constantine just basically turned it into an art form much later.

Carrier pretty much says the same thing as Ehrman. Whether or not Ehrman thinks that there was an actual man who the “jesus” character is based on. He concedes that there is no evidence at all of any jesus or even someone similar in the historical record of the 1st century. That’s really the relevant point isn’t it?

“People say,” “I have heard,” ” it has been said.” You sound like Fox News. Prove it or stfu.
