44. Quite the Contrary
For at least 300 years, people would be more likely roasted alive for confessing a belief in Jesus.

There was much public criticism and mockery of the Christian religion in the 1st-3rd centuries, both from the Jews and Romans. Some of them, like the Tolodoth Ieschu, place Jesus in the previous century and disagree about details like the number of disciples. Some people took the view that Jesus appeared to those around him to be human but was in actuality a spirit. But to my knowledge, no source ever denied that a person named Jesus existed on earth. That is what is difficult to explain.
