Am I therefore become your enemy for telling you the truth?”

IF BibleJesus Had Actually Existed…

The Jesus of the New Testament, if he existed, would have been very well known- world famous, in fact. He had face to face meetings with King Herod himself  (Mt 14:2, Lk 23:8), with Pontius Pilate- the Roman Empire’s governor for all Judea , AND with the “CEO” of several million Jews: the High Priest Caiaphas. That'd be the equivalent of meeting with the president of the United States, the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Pope. Add to that the 800 men of the Roman cohort sent to arrest him, witnessing firsthand an amputee being healed (John 18: 3, 12). Several years later the Apostle Paul told King Agrippa that these things of Jesus hadn't been done out of sight in some backwoods corner (Acts 26:26), so everyone knew about this Jesus. And according to the Apostle John the deeds of Jesus were soooooo numerous the world itself couldn't contain the records thereof (John 21:25). In short, everyone who was anyone knew who Jesus was, and what he was capable of doing.

Given all this, the Romans would have conscripted him to…

All of these god-like powers were in the hands of the Romans, theirs for the taking.

Given all of the above, does it really seem plausible that the following conversation between Pilate and his chief of staff would have gone down like this?

"So, I'm seeing Jesus today? THE Jesus who can walk on water AND heal the sick AND raise the dead? THE Jesus who could make me the next Emperor AND the wealthiest man on earth? Well, uhhh, I really don't see any use for him. Let's just go ahead and kill him."

Does anyone really think the Romans were so stupid and blind as to not see what Jesus could do for them? The Romans may have been a lot of things, but one thing they weren't is militarily stupid. They conquered most of the known world AND held onto it far longer than any country before or since.

The Romans weren’t stupid, and fact is, IF BibleJesus had actually existed, he would have been the proverbial goose that lays golden eggs, the most valuable & sought after man on the face of the planet. Whoever controlled him would have controlled the world, become rich beyond belief, even immortal. Jesus would have been the ticket for Pilate to become Emperor, or the means for the Jews to finally throw off the Roman occupation, or the way Tiberius conquered the entire world. Somebody somewhere would have found a use for him, just like we and the Soviets did with Wernher Von Braun & his V-2 rocket engineers after World War Two. SOMEBODY would have carted his ass off to Rome, to either cooperate or rot in a prison cell; either way the world today would be a much different place, and we’d all probably be speaking Italian and/or Christianity would not exist.

But we don’t all speak Italian, and Christianity does exist. What happened was, the world continued pretty much as it always has, stumbling and bumbling its way along. Just like nothing ever really happened. Why? Because nothing like Jesus ever really happened. That is the most logical explanation. For if BibleJesus had been real, things nowadays would be much different. But they’re not. And that is all the proof we need that the Jesus as described in the Bible never really existed.
