22. considering the only extant historian was Josephus
who was active some 40 years after the death of Jesus, and no one else ..

and that would leave only him mentioning Jesus in passages that are disputed, but many scholars believe to be original.

You are free to stick with your belief that is is all made up. I'm just waiting for proof from anyone that Jesus is made up.

I notice that stopbush has stoppedresponding.
