I did some quite extensive searching. Asked questions of religious people both christian and Muslim. Nowhere could I find any evidence that a biblical Jesus existed. There is no mention of him in any of the old texts of that time. Except maybe Flavius Josephus, and that was altered.
"The general scholarly view is that while the Testimonium Flavianum is most likely not authentic in its entirety, it is broadly agreed upon that it originally consisted of an authentic nucleus, which was then subject to Christian expansion/alteration." [More here]
One mention of a person so great he was running around curing the sick, walking on water, feeding the 5,000 and whatever other miracles hes purported to have done and theres no mention.
Does that not seem strange to you?
If I ask Christian or Muslim they wont even look in case they cant find anything. I challenged a Muslim at work to find me evidence that Jesus existed outside religious books. After initially agreeing, he came back and said he couldn't as if he couldn't find anything it would question his faith.
So you wont look because you might not find anything and that would prove its all a total sham?
Anyway Michael Paulkovich has written a book on the subject and obviously investigated far more extensively than I did, finding one-hundred-and-twenty-six writers from the "time of Jesus" who should have, but did not record anything about him.
Here is an introduction to the book
From No Meek Messiah:
It is 391 CE now as Roman Emperor Theodosius elevates Jesus (posthumously) to divinity, declaring Christianity the only "legitimate" religion of the world, under penalty of death. The ancient myth is rendered law. This decision by Theodosius is possibly the worst ever made in human history: what followed were century after century of torture and murder in the name of this false, faked, folkloric "prophesied savior" of fictional virgin mother. Within a year after the decree by Theodosius, crazed Christian monks of Nitria destroy the majestic Alexandrian Library largely because philosophy and science are taught there—not the Bible. In Alexandria these are times of the highest of intellectual pursuits, all quashed by superstitious and ignorant Christians of the most godly and murderous variety: they had the "Holy Bible" on their side.
