in response to reader comment: Proof is in the Belief - Thousands of Believing Sons of Jacob Cannot All Be Wrong

The number of adherents of a religion or sect has nothing to do with its veracity. All the information you have about "Yeshua" comes from the New Testament, which is not a reliable historical document at all. It was written and edited mainly by anonymous authors decades after the supposed events. It has many contradictions, omissions, and historical errors. There are no other contemporary sources that can corroborate what the NT says. The gospel authors may have created their own Jesus so he could match the "prophetical markers" they wanted.
