    Default The facts about Jesus presented by scholars...

    The facts about Jesus presented by scholars...

    Who Is the Real Jesus Christ?

    “Regardless of what anyone may personally think or believe about him, Jesus of Nazareth has been the dominant figure in the history of Western culture for almost twenty centuries.” ~ Jaroslav Pelikan, historian...

    If a court of law were to evaluate the evidence for Jesus Christ, what would be its verdict? Many scholars and skeptics have been startled by the facts of history about the most influential person who ever lived. What did they discover?

    We invite you to examine the facts in the following articles and come to your own conclusion about who Jesus Christ really is.

    Discover The Evidence—And Decide For Yourself:

    •Was Jesus a Real Person?
    •Was there a Da Vinci Conspiracy?
    •Is Jesus God?
    •Are the Gospels True?
    •Did Jesus Really Rise from the Dead?
    •Is Jesus Relevant Today?

    More - http://y-jesus.com/
    When you have eliminated all the impossible, whatever remains, however implausible, must be the logic truth...

    Hmmm. Fishy. This website is a den for Christian Fundies. They've put together a lot of stuff that suits their agenda and ignores stuff that doesn't. As for examining mountains of old script, perhaps they might have investigated if Jesus actually existed and was what he was claimed to be, and most of all, WHY DIDN'T HE WRITE ANYTHING HIMSELF? This pic from 32AD might explain it...

    Maybe he did write but nothing survived. Whatever the case, a Christian would assume that exactly what He wanted to survive did survive. I mean, we're talking about someone who can see the entire future at a glance. Therefore, we of faith must assume that the perfect amount of data has survived. Hence, we must also assume that all the data necessary for salvation has survived. It seems God does not like to give so much proof that no faith is needed, if that be even possible. Some people would disbelieve if He descended on Times Square with a host of angels and proceeded to restore the world trade center in an instant. Why, even our own zg would say, "I knew it was there all along. It was trick photography and other media illusions. And this Jesus and angel gig is the best illusion I ever saw, but I'm not buying it for one minute. So what if He healed everyone in NYC of every illness and disease in a NY second. Best trick I ever saw! I would like to see how the media was able pull this one off. I don't believe in this Jesus fellow, but I do think it may be the reptilians who I have even less information about."

    Those are artist's depiction of what Jesus looked like, Katweezel. He may have looked just like you.

    Dr z, this pic starts yet another conspiracy. I have it on good authority (unnamed scholars, rumors, Rense) that Jesus did look something like that Middle Eastern Jew pictured above. However, further research by archaeologists, geeks, nurds and atheists like me have unearthed new evidence. (Note italicized cliches.) Below is a far more accurate artist's depiction of what he really looked like.

    One commentator I heard today said from his study Jesus likely had no moustache, probably short hair, and was pretty well built judging from the muscle that would be needed to ply the trade of carpentry in those days with the primitive tools at their disposal. People like to think in terms of what people look like today, forgetting, for instance, that they had no dentists in those days, no Crest toothpaste with whitener, no modern razors for a trim beard or clean-shaven look, no pocket combs, no irons or dry cleaners to press their garments, etc.

    Many deluded Christians accept Jesus was a carpenter. Was he really a carpenter? Where are the tables, chairs, cupboards, houses, sheds (ANYTHING) he allegedly built from wood? Fortunately, I have these ancient pictures that prove he was a carpenter. Before I saw them, I thought he was a shepherd of sheep and goats.

    Jesus wasn't necessarily a carpenter. The word Tekton (root of technology, technical) was translated to carpenter, but means more generally a skilled maker or builder in various mediums.(en.wikipedia.org)

    There you have it. Jesus was a Tekton, not a carpenter. I'd always suspected he was never a carpenter.
    The only thing he ever had in common with carpentering was nails.

    My further research unearthed his real career: Plumbing. He was a plumber...
