Historicity of Jesus?
I watched the RRS debate vs Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron, and I recall Kelly saying that there was no non canonical evidence for the physical existence of a "Jesus Christ." I have not researched enough to know if this is indeed fact, so excuse my ignorance on the subject. It's always been enough to know that religion was bs I was never really concerned about there being a real Jesus Christ or not. But I realize now that if enough evidence against the existence of a physical Jesus Christ could be found then I think the basis for the religion would crumble. So my question is was there ever in the very least a man named Jesus Christ? Also is there any historical documentation outside of the bible that indicates the possibility of a Jesus Christ? I read somewhere that they discovered the person he was actually based on, and that his name was Yoshua Ben Yosef or something like that. I remember someone mentioning that Jesus Christ was the name given to him by Julius Caesar, because his original name was "too jewish." I dont remember where I heard all this and im not sure if any of it is accurate. Anyway If anyone can refer me to any research on the subject or provide some answers I would really appreciate it. I think if i could present enough evidence that Jesus never existed, I could turn a few heads in my area to hear me out about the irrationality of this bullshit.
