01 So was there really a Jesus

Critics wonder who the real historical Jesus was. I could guess who he was, assuming he was a real person.

1) A sage believing God talked with him.

2) A spiritual leader (a messiah) on a mission to encourage his people about the hereafter.

3) A man who had no super-powers. No walking on water. Couldn't feed an audience of thousands with just five loaves of bread.

4) May well have been a faith healer to a lesser degree. But didn't ever raise the dead.

5) His followers saw him rise from the grave, yes, but saw it with their eye of faith. Those who knew him less spread rumors that he had bodily walked out of the tomb and appeared to his friends. Other fantastic stories and rumors, too, were collected and put in the Gospels.
