It was on-par with the timeframe in history for there to be "prophets" who convinced gullible people to follow them (much like cults today). Interestingly there were also "Johnites" around at that time (as in the gospel of John) along with many other groups of a similar nature that were either lost to time or absorbed into other groups. Seems Christianity is the one that took off. Again, little physical evidence, but enough anecdotal to make it probable.

I agree with you generally. But it seems more to me like Paul should be seen as the one who brought about the ideals of Christianity as it is typically known. After all, he was the one who popularised the Gospel message as it is known now, contradicting Jesus' message in many aspects.

The Jesus portrayed in the Bible certainly never existed.

If only for that reason alone I voted "no".

If he did, he impressed so few people that they couldn't even stop him getting nailed up and had to write a lame-ass cover story. The story said that actually him getting executed was part of the plan. It took them thirty years to think up.

He didn't. If only for the miracles bullshit. The Jesus in the Bible was said to perform miracles that aren't possible.

Its also possible that if he existed he brought forth new ideas, some of which may of got him killed.
Name one new idea that the Jesus character expressed.

My bad. I didnt mean to say there where definitely new ideas brought forth by the jesus character. I used some of the OP's syntax. Just saying IF......
I mean if its about new ideas, theyre happening all the time and some people just dont like em
