There are fictional characters and there are real people.

History is supposed to be about real people.

If you drop a fictional character into a historical narrative and claim he is a real person then that narrative itself becomes fiction

There are two kinds of fictional characters who have been woven into the story of humanity mostly in ancient times. The first are complete fictions. These are known as myths. The second are real people about whom were told a lot of fictional stories and you can’t separate the real from the imagined. These are called legends..

Jesus Christ is a myth. He is a cartoon character.

Fake supernatural beings are a dime a dozen in the annals of the human race. That this one has lasted so long is quite remarkable. What I am going to do is to identify the most egregious falsehoods masquerading as facts. It’s not difficult because if someone never existed, he leaves no facts.

This god came into the world as a persona called Iesous in a Greek fable entitled the “New Testament.” When the sage Rabbi Meir first saw this book or a version of it circa 130 CE he called it the “Aven Gilyon” in Hebrew. The name has stuck ever since. You could translate that into modern English as “Worthless Tripe.”

The fable about Iesous is set in the Jewish state then under occupation by the Romans. He is represented as being a Jew. But the only name we have for him is Iesous, a Greek name, even though he is not recorded as having lived in a Greek-speaking area of the country. The land was pretty much divided between Hebrew-speaking communities where Jews lived and Greek-speaking communities where non-Jews lived

There is no record of his ever having a Hebrew name and the moniker he is called by in Hebrew from the time he became known is Yeshu, which is from the Hindi language and still is his name in India. There is no record of his ever having been in Israel. That’s because he never was there
