    The mistake is thinking that the soul dies and that life is over at physical death. Jesus showed otherwise.

    Who resurrected, never to see death again?

    Please give me names, their claims to deity, and where they are living since they never died.

    Only one. Jesus ever resuscitated others, but they later died again.

    Miracles are common, even today. See the two volume by Craig Keener that I’ll list below.

    Jesus claimed to be God.The miracles were done to validate his claims while he was living.His resurrection from the dead is the basis of Christianity, showing the veracity of his claim to deity.

    I did not write, “holiness.” I wrote, “deity.”

    Jesus is a composite of several people?My friend, no one seriously considers that an alternative – except internet atheists.

    The miracles were done to validate his claims to deity. See Mark 9:2-8 “2 And they brought to Him a paralytic lying on a bed. Seeing their faith, Jesus said to the paralytic, “Take courage, son; your sins are forgiven.” 3 And some of the scribes said to themselves, “This fellow blasphemes.” 4 And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, “Why are you thinking evil in your hearts? 5 Which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up, and walk’? 6 But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”—then He *said to the paralytic, “Get up, pick up your bed and go home.” 7 And he got up and went home. 8 But when the crowds saw this, they were awestruck, and glorified God, who had given such authority to men. Matthew 9:2-8”

    My friend, this is the state of current professional Jesus scholarship. This agreement has been around for many years. Note that I’m not talking about uneducated internet atheists. I’m talking about professional researchers of all persuasions with Ph.D.’s who teach in universities. I would strongly encourage you to get into the literature and you will find out that these are facts. Even folks like Bart Ehrmann agree with these facts.

    And to say that because something is old that it cannot be true, well, this is called chronological snobbery. This is an intellectually lazy position.

    You don’t have to. It’s a simple as confessing to God that you have broken his commandments and then to trust that Jesus’ death really does forgive you of your rebellion. Ask for more if you like.

    My friend, did you read my post? These are the minimum facts on which virtually all Jesus scholars (including atheist and agnostic and other) agree about Jesus. To say that we don’t know which Jesus they’re talking about is simply naïve.

    Oh my! The name Jesus was the most popular one of that time frame! But as I said virtually every Jesus scholar agrees about the above items. Check out the professional literature and you’ll see.

    Paul faked his conversion and was killed for it. Yea. That’s a stretch.

    It’s amazing the lengths to which people will go to be creative to avoid obvious truths when they want to suppress it.

    Actually, it’s the other way around. For centuries archaeology has confirmed facts from the bible.
