84. i have yet to see any film that accurately depicts anything...
and that includes documentaries.

With that said, I might propose that the com temporary accounts of Jesus may have been 'scrubbed', much as bush's TX license was 'scrubbed'. It was not unheard of to get rid of all contemporary accounts of certain individuals. Some of the Pharaohs had their names removed from buildings, and the library at Alexandria may have held scrolls and other written accounts of Jesus, (the vast majority were burned to heat water for Roman baths). Just in the last 60+ years, the 'Dead Sea Scrolls' were found. Who knows what else is out there?

Until recently, there was no evidence of Sodom, Gomorrah or Jericho. Twenty years ago archaeologists seem to have found evidence to point in the direction that these places existed.

Jesus was a figure of importance, and a definite threat to the powers of the time. It would not surprise me if his records were 'scrubbed' in an attempt to discredit him; or even 'prove' that he never existed.

One thing is for sure though, the teachings of Jesus have had an enormous impact on the world. Some haver used those teachings to nefarious means, but if you read what Jesus spoke of and try to adhere to those teachings, your life would be better. So would the lives of those around you.
