Did Jesus really exist?
What does recorded history say about Jesus?
Does the Bible have credibility?
Available facts about Jesus.
This article is an introduction to the subsection titled, “The human Jesus?” which is placed under the Heading, “Deal with doubts” on the Menu Bar.
This subsection evaluates information from both ancient non-religious (secular) historians and writers of the Christian Bible to determine how likely Jesus: did live and die as a human being; did rise from the dead; was God incarnate (God in human form).
To some extent the articles also look beyond the written word for evidence. That includes ‘related events’ still happening in the Christian Church today. (Please trust me on that one, at this stage.)
2. IT IS QUITE A HOT TOPIC
The key subject of this subsection, i.e. “Evidence of Jesus”, is quite a hot topic on the internet. It is of great interest to both Christian and atheist writers. Both sides approach their tasks with great energy, obviously with opposing views.
Yes I am a committed Christian, but I have tried to provide an objective evidence-based approach here.
(Bear in mind that I did ‘make a living‘ in the past from my investigative and analytical skills. In fact I am from a senior auditing background, although the majority of my advisory team are Christian clergy. To glimpse the ‘who’, ‘how’ and ‘why’ of this website please click here.)
The facts available, that I refer to through this subsection, seem to speak for themselves and do so reasonably well in my opinion. Remember too, as I have so often written on this website, I was a pretty good atheist in my day! The article, “Too good to be true?” is based on my own journey to sound Christian faith and very strong belief in God’s existence.
3. HOW TO READ THE SUBSECTION
The fourth (and final) article in the subsection which is titled, “The Big Picture” explains what I consider all this recorded information actually means. That is, for those readers who are questioning the Christian religion’s basis.
4. BUT IF IT ALL SEEMS ‘A BIT HARD TO SWALLOW’
Now, if all this “Jesus stuff” just seems a bit too much for you … say if you are even struggling with the possible existence of God … please begin by reading the article, “Can I really believe in God?”.
Trust me on this one at least: IF you are ready to believe, THEN you can!
