>blatent facts.............. or....... not.
Yes you simply considering something to be a joke makes it false.
Why would a histrorian write about Guards at the tomb? Jesus was carpender for most of his life and then taught far diffent then what the Messiah was suppost to be, after his death I don't think many historians wanted to be killed and well your trying to destroy a faith It seems pretty logical that you would attempt to destroy any evidence of the founder existing. Flavius Josephus is able to get away with writing about Jesus simply because he considered Nero to be the Messiah.I never claimed they did show off the body, what i'm asking you is to provide EVIDENCE that they did not, and likewise for the guards, i'm not claiming there weren't any, but i have yet to see any evidence supporting your claim that there were.
Flavius Josephus I know writes about the Deaths of Jesus Brother James, and Paul. I really can't find any other proof probly because well I don't it's disputed.How do you know they were tortured? How do you know anything about them?
1 Corinthians 15:6When, where, and how do you know.
"Then he appeared to more then five hundred of his followers at once, most of whom are still alive, although some have died"
In other words this says:
Don't belive me, don't belive the other apposles, don't belive James, well how about 500 who will claim that Jesus has appeared to them.
I don't think if Paul who had prosucted christians before could fine 500 people claiming that they saw the Resuraction that neither would a skeptic of the times.
There is a bit of diffence between convincing people that someone rose from the dead that he proformed miricles and that this stuff only happen a couple of weeks ago, and convince some person that x product is that of there Dreams.ROFL, because people sure aren't gullible now!
>> I have never seen any evidence that anything in the bible is incorrect,
Have you actually read this thread? ... I didnt think so. All your questions have already been asked and answered.
>>but "Faith is the evidence of things not seen."
Go. Read. This. Thread.
Then you can post.
Um, you have yet to find a controdicton, disprove the bible historicly, that contest seemingly has not been won.
Sigh, more work to do... respond to other points latter
