      Who Was the Real Jesus?
      by David Pratt

      The story of Jesus as presented in the four gospels of the New
      Testament is essentially a piece of fiction. There are no authentic
      references to such a figure in the works of any historians of the
      early 1st century CE (common era). The pre-gospel writings of the
      early Christians also make no reference to the life and teachings of
      a recent historical Jesus. Paul, for instance, was supposedly Jesus'
      contemporary, yet he never claimed to have met him in the flesh or to
      have met anyone else who had done so; he encountered him only in
      visions, as a spiritual being. The Christian groups of the 1st
      century CE held extremely diverse theological views, and this would
      be hard to explain if they were the followers of a single, recent
      teacher. Remarkably, they showed no interest in the holy sites and
      relics associated with Jesus' alleged earthly career; it was not
      until the 4th century that pieces of the 'true cross' began to
      surface, and that the first shrine was set up on the supposed mount
      of Jesus' death.
