There is some problem here with the Bible and the historical record, but the two have in my
my opinion demonstrated, that Jesus did exist. Historical records and the Bible in many
cases became the written record itself. The Bible is not the only account with the four books
Mathew Mark Luke and John.
there were other authors of the record, and unfortunately they are still in the Vatican vault
and not part of the Bible at all. The reason is simple. Within a few years after the death of
Christ, the Church witnessed a battle for control of the faith. The four main participants who
ended up with a post script or a section of teaching as we call it. The remainder was left our
as a compromise. Some say there could be as many as two dozen books that would make
up all the teachings in the Bible.
I have watched some programs and read articles over the years that suggest, that Mary,
Magdalene was a disciple, not a prostitute, in fact she was relegated to a prostitute status by
Pope Gregory in the 12Th century I believe. But then we all know about Pope Gregory, he
sold shares into Heaven in exchange for donations to build St Peters, and the current structure
of the seat of power for the church.
I believe the Jesus we know today and the Jesus who existed in his time in history are very
different people. Rome would not have been so obsessed with get rid of him if he did not exist.
