Jesus never existed. This is the conclusion of a scientist who claims to have examined 126 texts written during or shortly after the time when Jesus presumably lived – and found no mention of Jesus.
The claim that Jesus, the messianic figure at the center of the world’s largest religion, Christianity, was just a fictional character is not new. Scientist claims that the story of Jesus is very similar to many other mythological stories of the ancient gods born of virgin mothers and did wonders.
In a new article entitled “The Fable of The Christ“, Michael Paulkovich claims that Jesus never existed, but a fictional character composed to give followers of the religion founded on his name a central icon worthy of your worship.
Paulkovich says that only one of the 126 texts he seeks contains any mention of Jesus, and this, he says, is a fake. This text is the first book in the history of the century Jewish-Roman wars of the Roman historian Josephus Flavius, who wrote his work in 95 CE.
But despite building his home a mile from the town of Nazareth, Josephus seems to completely ignore the famous thaumaturge who then went to Jerusalem, where he became a political threat that the Romans consider necessary for the execution of the crucifixion.
Jesus never existed
The few mentions of Jesus in “The Jewish wars”, Paulkovich argues, were added by later editors, not by Josephus himself.
“The Emperor Tito Cassius Dio, Maxime Moeragenes Lucian, Soterichus Oasites, Euphrates, Marcus Aurelius, or Damis Hierapolis. It seems that none of these writers had never heard of Jesus, ” Paulkovich said in a recent interview.
The Dead Sea Scrolls, also known as the Qumran texts, contain no mention of Jesus. Even the apostle Paul, the New Testament character attributes the spread of the new religion called “Christianity”, called after the death of Jesus never says that Jesus was a real person, even in the Bible itself.
“Paul ignores the virgin mother and ignores the Nativity, belonging, life events, ministry, miracles, apostles, betrayal, judgment and painful passion of Jesus,” says Paulkovich. “Paul does not know where or when Jesus lived and considers the metaphorical crucifixion.”
While today’s Christianity has become the most popular religion in the history of the world, with 2.2 billion people calling themselves Christians, Paulkovich points out that in the fourth century, Christianity was still a small cult widely pursued.
The invention of a mythical figure for the assembled faithful gave the first Christians the strength to survive, according to this theory. On the other hand, another recent supporter of the “mythical Jesus” believe that Christ was invented by the Romans as propaganda to appease the public.
“When I see the 126 writers that all must have heard about Jesus, but they didn’t – and Paul and Marcion and Athenagoras and Matthew Cristi opposite tetralogy, silenced Qumran and Nazareth and Bethlehem, contradictory biblical stories, and so Paulkovich writes:” I conclude that Christ is a mythical person.”
