48. Yes, because that character isn't what we would call good...

as pointed out in this thread, he was a racist against Greeks, he calls on his followers to abandon their families to follow him, he's irrational, and apocalyptic. Indeed, assuming he existed as even remotely portrayed in the Bible, he acted like a typical Apocalyptic Jewish preacher of the 1st century. He wasn't the first, or the last, and only later was this deification process done.
