quote:Well the purpose of this thread is for those with claims of a historical jesus to back up those claims.
Participants please reread Message 1 to get an idea of what this thread is about.
This is not a thread about Theology or one's personal religious beliefs regarding the nature of Jesus. How does one extract reliable History from the surviving documentary evidence available to reconstruct the Historical figure of Jesus?
My feeling is that this thread has run its course and is ready to be closed down.
If anyone disagrees and truly wants to get back to the spirit of the topic, make a request in the Thread Reopen Requests 2 thread.
