Is Jesus Christ really a Historical Person?
Answer in one sentence:
Yes, Jesus Christ is a historical person.
Answer in detail:
Jesus Christ is generally accepted as a historical person. What differs is what has been accepted about this Historical Jesus. Ironically, its still like what was told about Him when He walked on this earth: And it happened, as He was alone praying, that His disciples joined Him, and He asked them, saying, "Who do the crowds say that I am?" So they answered and said, "John the Baptist, but some say Elijah; and others say that one of the old prophets has risen again." He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" Peter answered and said, "The Christ of God." (Lk 9:18-20; Mk 8:27-29)
Many still don't know Who He IS! Only those who have a personal relationship with Him can know Him!(To be continued...)
