I must say that I am deeply impressed with the historical perspectives you bring-up. Anyone who dismisses you as being 'argumentative' is missing-out on what you bring to the table. I wish we had all the answers and I can't wait for the day when all is revealed. We can't ignore what is substantiated in history; unfortunately, the historical record is incomplete... what a shame that the Great Library of Alexandria was burned for much of the historical record was lost there.
The most notable thing about the story of Yeshua is that after 2000 years it is still a hotly debated story--almost self-evident that it is no ordinary story.
Ides plus 12, I don't say this with pride, because I wish it had not been true, but not every thing got lost in the flames of the fire in the Great
Library of Alexandria. This tragic episode was recorded by the Talmud, which was not burned in that fire. As I said, I am not proud to remind you of
that, because I wish it had not been that way.
