Was the myth of Jesus born the day Augustus Octavian Caesar died?

This is for the nice folks who are hung up on ancient dates that do not mean beans toward the truth.

I can tell by some of the low level answers that I get that I am rattling some cages. When you rattle a monkeys cage you get screams and screeches. I definitly do not mean all of you. There are some people who call themselves Christian that are very sincere. The rest are piles of crap. Don't you see it yourself?

    There were dozens of half crazed Jewish Prophets walking the Roman Empire during the first century. It was a crazy time, much like the 1960's in San Francisco. It has been suggested that Jesus is actually an amalgam of several apocalyptic Jewish cult figures, and not one person. The Gospels and Paul's writing came decades after Jesus' death, not to mention the numerous other texts that were discarded by the early church. Jesus was not even agreed upon as being divine until the Council of Nicaea in the fourth century. Bishop Arius, anyone?

    In answer to your question, no. I don't think they deified Augustus Caesar into a Jewish Messiah.

    In response to your details. That is going a bit over the top. You should never boast that you are trolling, even if you are doing it blatantly. It spoils the effect.

    For all you people asserting Jesus fullfilled prophesies, that would not make him the christ. The Jewish christ replaced into meant to convey peace to the international, the 1st time he got here. there have been no prophesies a pair of 2nd coming. additionally, examine in the process the gospel. Jesus stated he replaced into coming back interior the era of the folk he taugh. replaced into he the christ or did he purely think of he replaced into the christ?

    Jesus is not a myth. He is the Savior.

    And even if you fail to recognize Him as such, He was still an historical figure.
