The cloth which is used in Jesus's burial had been retrieved, and the historians found out that is an archive from jesus's burial ground

The "proof" for the existence of Christ can be found in three main sources. The argument for the existence of Jesus is strengthened because the person of Jesus Christ is mentioned by independent Christian, Jewish, and Roman sources. Obviously the person of Jesus is mentioned quite thoroughly in the New Testament and other early Christian writings but Jesus is also mentioned by the Jewish historian Josephus. The fact that Josephus, a practicing Jew and a man who was not actively involved Christian circles and not part of the early church mentions the existence of Jesus of Nazareth in his writings definitely gives credence to the argument for the existence of Jesus Christ. In turn, another of the most credible arguments for the existence of Jesus Christ are the writings of the Roman historian Tacitus. Tacitus was a Roman historian who also mentioned the existence of the crucifixion of Jesus in his writings. In turn, the writings of Tacitus are viewed by historians as crucial to not only understanding early Middle Eastern history but also what we know of early Germanic tribes in Europe. In essence, while the divinity of Jesus is not something that can be proven historically, the historical community is quite sure that a person named Jesus did live in the Middle East two thousand years ago and can look to independent historical sources to strengthen their argument.

I don't think that many people would conspire to create a false image of a person, people from different places, different religions and points of view, do you?



Not to mention there's this thing called faith. So no proof should be needed for those who truly believe.

What do you mean? You mean you didn't know that he once did exist? I'm confused.

hmmm for me Jesus existed but not like what we hear that he is the son of God, he just maybe did some good things that made a very huge impact on his times if we are basing the info on the proof archives like what animemagic is saying......but if there is no archive thing i would say that he didnt exist

omg...that was a long article at the beginning. definitely didnt read it.
heck yeah Jesus existed. i'm a christian so that's pretty much a given for me.....and i'm pretty sure he was jewish...
i don't believe that was the actual burial cloth that Jesus used. if you think logically why in the world would that still be there?

No offense but I'm going to offend someone anyway. No one really knows if all these prophets and famous personality, who founded the known religions, did chat with our ancestors and showed the path of righteousness . Maybe Jesus existed, maybe he was just an invention of cunning people to help keep the sanity of humans. If people did not believe in a superior power, then human race would have already been annihilated because every mistake would mean retribution from the insulted party. I no longer believe in a supernatural being but I still live by the selected teachings of the Catholic church. It doesn't matter if you're a believer or not. As long as you are not an impediment to anyone's happiness, then the gods, if they do exist, would be smiling at you.
The only thing that makes me tick is how people fight over religion, claiming that their religion is the real thing and the others are instruments of the devil. So guys, chill. I think we should respect other people's belief. How many wars have been fought in the name of a god? How many people have been alienated because they choose not to conform?
Excuse me for being bold but I think that religion is the best human invention of all.
