I believe jesus never existed...
Be careful dude. Many historians and scholars would laugh at you for that... including me
Why? Several historians mentioned him. Tacitus, Josephus and Mara Bar Serapion all wrote about Jesus and they were first century historians. Christians were recorded as existing as early as 60 AD and it was wrote that they followed Christus (Christ). That itself is proof Jesus was a real person. Also recorded were the Christians executions in Roman Arenas and how they refused to denounce Christ even when threatened with death, a fake man does not inspire such faith 30 years after he was supposed to exist.
On another note, this image leaves out other views on Jesus. Such as my own.
Trusting the New Testament
As do I, Spartan. Never the less, there is much to learn through study of religions- especially through our secular viewpoint lost to many religious people...
According to Islam, jesus (Isa) was just a man who was served as a messenger for Allah.
so we are missing a point of view, sorry about that.
mabye it can be edited later.
Not really because the view of him being just an ordinary human can go with him being a prophet and messenger as Muslims say he was. After-all all the prophets before Christ were ordinary people who were messengers for God.
The view that is missing is the one of Jesus simply being a divine being who was created by God at the beginning. So this view states that he's not God but he's not human either. Another view is that Jesus is an angel (the highest and first one created).
My view as you know, is that Jesus is a divine being higher than an angel and God's first creation.
"I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father but through Me." Thats who Yeshua (Jesus) is. Reject Him and you are screwed. Plain, simple, and straight to the point.
