36 Reasons Why Scholars Know Jesus Really Existed

from Historical Jesus Studies

Introduction.

This list has taking me quite a few days to put together, but it’s been a joyful time doing so. I was already familiar with most of the literature on this topic so that would have shortened my time spent on the list, however there is always something that one seems to have missed when going over things for the first time, and therefore it is worth it going over it a second or third time.

Nevertheless, I always have a great time surveying evidence, and piecing it together so that we can come out with a picture on the other end, and that would be my point for this blog article – to survey the historical evidence for Jesus’ existence. Another reason that the topic of Jesus’ existence is seemingly so welcoming for me is because Jesus is so well established in history – I can’t lose, so why not use that to your advantage, that’s the way I see it, and that is just the way it seems to be in all spheres of historical scholarship.

So, here is a list that I wish for believers and even unbelievers (who do not deny that Jesus’ existed at one time) to share with their friends, colleagues and whomever else. But if you do share this, please would you credit my blog, as well as my Facebook page Happy Christian Apologetics Community.
