Justified & Ancient

That's all good and well. But this isn't about personal belief but historical evidence. For the record, I do think JC was real enough, but unless new evidence comes to light we may never be able to tell the truth from the fiction.
We have four authors writing about one man's life. He wasn't a king, didn't hold any military or other position, and he had only been actively preaching for three years when he was crucified. The only record that I could imagine would exist is if someone found the court record of his conviction. There's no newspapers back then
So like a great deal of the distant past it is likely we will never know the absolute truth .Actually, you don't have to go all that far back for events to become difficult to verify.
