Jesus doesn’t exist?

Jesus doesn’t exist?

“Jesus doesn’t exist,” claim some scholars. Here is a link to an article that has a summary of their argument and further references. 5 good reasons to think Jesus never existed   

Is this argument without a satisfying challenge? Is their view even true?

It seems to me that they are very selective in what they bring forth as evidence. Consider that Bart Ehrman writes in the above mentioned article, “There are no birth records, no trial transcripts, no death certificates; there are no expressions of interest, no heated slanders, no passing references – nothing.” The Gospels of the Bible have these, but it is rejected because these scholars believe that the Gospel were written decades after the supposed time that Jesus had lived.

Here are two links from J. Werner Wallace, who has written on these topics

Seems too many deniers rely on dismissal of any and all facts. A simple search on the internet of
“Did Jesus exist?” will show this. There have been books written, too, which while more scholarly than articles do not have the reasonableness of those whose argument is that Jesus did exist.

You might want to take the time to see the YouTube video by Dr Paul L. Maier on the existence of the historical Jesus. https://youtu.be/y5vkYd3WBD8

You may want to read the above and listen to Dr Maier’s presentation and consider the reasonableness of their argument. I am sure any open minded individual will want to study it.
