Jesus literalist. What would change your mind?


Recommended Posts

Not really. Jesus has left no own writings, Sophocles left numerous plays. Jesus isn't mentioned in any writing until quite a long time since he supposedly died, Sophocles is mentioned in at least one concurrent book. And you would assume that someone who stops the sun in the sky would be mentioned in at least Roman documentation. Not to mention they would most likely write about one of the most successful rioters ever. Furthermore, it seems most of what Jesus is described as is a collage of previous mythology, which further increases suspicions he's not a historical figure.

 

Thus, the existence of Sophocles is a more solid fact than Jesus having existed.

The Romans may have written about Jesus; it may have been lost.

 

It was not, "quite a long time" when compared to several other major historical figures.

It's earlier than much of the New Testament, actually. It's on par with the Gospel of John. It's earlier than Timothy, Titus, James, and 2 Peter.

What was it, 310 years after his death that they actually made him part of the silly notion they called the Trinity.

It seems that perhaps there is a bit of an issue regarding what is perceived as a miracle and what is actually potentially explainable, using modern day reasoning. A simple change in attitude regarding a disease a person has can make the difference, especially if they happen to take the right steps to ensure their recovery after a so-called healing. It's amazing what people can attribute to their rise or fall, especially way back then.
