Why I Think Jesus Never Existed in History
He Didn't Exist
There are many people out there that do not believe Jesus ever existed. There are multiple reasons why to come to this conclusion. Today I provide my general reason for questioning Jesus' existence and some responses to popular apologetics for historicity.
The main reason is Paul. Paul claims that he got his gospel from Jesus himself after he resurrected in a vision and the Scriptures. The scriptures have over 300 supposed prophecies relating to Jesus to which he hits every single one of them. This clues me into the fact that Paul was one of an amalgam of people that created a savior for the Christian religion.
Another key indicator that on Raglan's Hero Pattern, Jesus nails 20 items. Real people usually score a 6 or a 7 on the scale. With Jesus getting a 20 Raglan score, it places him securely in the fictional af category.
But all of this goes back to one detail. The earliest account of Jesus never places him on earth. Only as a spirit that appears to Paul delivering his gospel.
