    Was Jesus a real person?

    Or was he a hand-me-down version of the Egyptian prophet Horus?

    Very interesting video.

    I don't think many people deny Jesus lived, its whether or not he rose is where the debate comes in. It's a factual and historical definite that he lived here in the flesh.

    But then again everyone has the right to their own opinion

    There is far too much historical documentation of his existence for it to be some sort of conspiracy. However, many of the other major Biblical figures have too little historical evidence to prove their existence (Moses in particular).

    So Jesus existed, but were certain characteristics of his existence embellished?

    Well did you see the entire video? It showed that no well known historians actually documented Jesus' existence. There were 4 historians who documented his existence, 3 of them were 2 lines of text in their entire literary works, and the fourth was proven to be a lie.

    So besides the bible, where is the historical documentation?

    Is Jesus not just a new testament version of Joseph? Joseph in the old testament, was born on Dec 25th, of a miracle birth, performed miracles himself, had 12 brothers and the parallels continue.

    PS I'm not trying to be rude or aggressive at all in my comments, forgive them if they seem brash.


    Also, if one could, please provide some of the abundances of historical documentation of Jesus. Other than the Bible please.

    Here is the rebuttal to the Christianity portion of Zietgiest. It's producer is simply making stuff up, and based on that discredits anything of value and truth he may have alluded to later on in the film.

    As far as historical evidence outside the bible, you already have them.

    But why discard the bible as a valid historical document?

    Players come and go, but I will always be a Miami Dolphins Fan first and foremost.

    Joseph was a miraculous birth? I did not know that.

    Anyone that pretends to know the answer to that is full of sh*t

    There are literary thousands of accounts of his being here on earth. Many being from people that opposed him at the time and of those that questioned his claims of being the son of God. I'm not gonna do the leg work for you. If your curious do the research and look for your own answers. I have my beliefs and they are just that, mine and I don't preach them to others. As long as your trying to do right by others your doing something right is about as close as I'll come.
