Author Topic: Jesus Fails To Qualify As Historical Entry In Oxford Classic Dictionary  (Read 4779 times)

This is the more significant to me when you think of Jesus in the larger perspective. If in fact he were real and what he did was real, it would be the single greatest event in history, bar none. It is highly suspicious that god caused this to happen and left virtually no objective evidence of it. Kind of the icing on the cake imo.
I don't remember the author's name but he started a quest to verify the 19 or so historians who were alive when Jesus was but failed to mention him.  He failed in that quest--he found something like 117 historians who should known who he was and what he did--but failed to mention him at all.  He wrote a book about it. That is amazing.  Why did god make all those historians blind??  To me, just the fact that Philo failed to mention him is astounding!
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?
