None of them ever existed.Bernard Muller wrote: ↑Mon Feb 12, 2018 8:42 amNeither Paul, nor Hebrews is silent about the existence in the past of an earthly & human Jesus. Even if both like to speculate on the post-existent (sometime pre-existent) heavenly Jesus, because here, they can invent all kinds of fascinating attributes tailored to attract & keep converts. However, the historical Jesus had little interest, except that, by some fluke, he was crucified as Christ, triggering extraordinary beliefs with the help of the OT and Philo of Alexandria's works.
It is absolute nonsense that the Jesus character must have existed because it is stated in the Bible.
The authors of the Epistles have stated his Jesus was the Lord from heaven, God Creator, the firstborn of the dead and God's own Son who was raised from the dead .
Paul's Jesus was not a figure of histlory
Paul's Jesus was a myth figure just like Romulus.
Probably a good thing that this isn't Bernard's point at all, nor was it the subject of discussion.It is absolute nonsense that the Jesus character must have existed because it is stated in the Bible.
You've gotten bolder with these tangential, table-pounding non sequiturs. Keep it up, and you may be banned.
