Response to When I speak of the "Jesus" of the NT being a "fictional character"...


after studying the NTestament writings and looking at early church fathers' writings that ...

... the Jesus Christ they spoke about (except for the 4 gospels) ...

... was an ANTICIPATED person. He was to be "revealed" and was to "appear" and ... when he didn't, the believers became antsy and started to leave their faith. This shows through in 2nd Peter 3 and also in the little Johns (where it became mandatory to BELIEVE that he had come in the flesh). If he HAD actually shown up (as the gospels declare) ... there would have been no need for the admonishments to BELIEVE that he did.

I wrote a fairly lengthy post "to Nucc" on this today ... if you want to check it out. I'd repost it here but it's disappeared from my cache and I'd have to do all the html coding over again.
