BTW the flimsy reference to the chart concerning the NT:

"1. This chart was adapted from three sources: 1) Christian Apologetics, by Norman Geisler, 1976, p. 307; 2) the article "Archaeology and History attest to the Reliability of the Bible," by Richard M. Fales, Ph.D., in The Evidence Bible, Compiled by Ray Comfort, Bridge-Logos Publishers, Gainesville, FL, 2001, p. 163; and 3) A Ready Defense, by Josh Mcdowell, 1993, p. 45.
2. (Habermas, Gary R., The Historical Jesus: Ancient Evidence for the Life of Christ, (Joplin, MO: College Press Publishing Company) 1996.)"

So how did he become such a figure. Its not like other figures in history who conquered this or did that. If you think of it most characters in history are known for all the bad things they did.
Everyone expected a Saviour, according to the prophets of the OT. Here came a man, He defied all odds. He said He is from God, and the Son of God. People believed Him, and others rejected Him. He said, believing and having faith in Him, would save them, and give them eternal life.

The jews expected a messiah. He was not their messiah. Christ rejected them, and they rejected Him.
That's the story of Christ for me. You either except Him or reject Him.

Where does the word "Jesus" come from? Can anyone show me an original document with the word "Jesus" on it.

Well, all names in the OT, were Hebrew. Then suddenly because in NT times, Greek became the international language of those areas, and then suddenly they (whoever they are) decided to make a NT in greek, and viola, the proper name, Yahshua, became Jesus. :rolleyes:
