The idea that Jesus may never have actually existed has been around in modern scholarship for over a century, but it has never been sufficiently proven. Yet critical analysis shows that every account of the life of Jesus can be traced back to the writing now called the Gospel of Mark, and the Gospel of Mark was originally written as a fictional political allegory in reacti ...more

Powerful and persuasive read

Powerful summary of reasons why Jesus did not exist purely from the evidence presented by charisma themselves.

I would have reviewed more detail airtime the literary allusions in the gospel need mark though.
