There’s much talk about Jesus of Nazareth at this time of year. He is followed and revered by many who believe he claimed and actually was the unique son of God. Others don’t believe or aren’t sure about this claim, but many of them think he lived a good life, and his example is one to be followed as they live their own lives.
Many people question whether this man ever actually lived, and think he was a mere myth. They doubt his historicity. As Wikipedia expresses it, “The historicity of Jesus relates to whether Jesus of Nazareth was a historical figure.”
Looking at the Historicity of Jesus is trying to answer the questions, Did Jesus really actually live? Or was he just a consolidation of many good ways of living and wise sayings that came to be associated with a man who never even lived?
