    I think he was probably a composite of several messianic Jewish peripatetic agitators roaming Judea at the time. These movements were rampant as a response to Roman occupation (movements like the Essenes/Nazoreans and the Zealots). Note that John the Baptist came before Jesus and wasn't necessarily tied to him in reality. It was also widely believed that Elijah would return to Earth in bodily form to herald the coming of the Messiah. Christian apologists later blurred all of these separate facts into one sloppy story where all of the agitators became blended into this "Jesus" character (the name probably came from one of the actual Jews with a cult following, but there were many). John the Baptist somehow "became" Elijah incarnated to wriggle around the fact that Elijah never had actually returned to herald this supposed Messiah, Jesus. If Jesus really was just one person originally, then he has had so many other attributes and ridiculous events tied in with him that it's useless to call him an historical personage.

    I think that Jesus was a Surfer from California ( long hair,beard and sandals)
    In all seriousness I think that Jesus was probably a Teacher and possibly a Prophet .

    I care only in that I am forced to care by a world full of Bible-thumping Christians who attempt to force their middle-eastern fantasies on me through knocks on my door at 9am on Saturday mornings and bumper sticks like "My Father is a Jewish Carpenter" (that one had me stumped for many years). If they would just mind their own business and stop trying to save my wretched soul from the pits of Hell, I wouldn't hate them so much.

    Back to the question: He probably existed in some manner, maybe as a single man and maybe his image is a composite of many, or maybe the Bible is just complete nonsense and/or a fable, but I just don't care.

    Amen.

    I selected that first choice too. Without that belief there is no hope.
    Mormons don't believe in the divinity of Christ either. They believe that Jesus is the brother of satan.

    I always find it so strange that Christ and Lucifer are considered "spirit brothers" by the Latter-Day Saints. But Joseph Smith's family was heavily involved in the occult, and practiced mesmerism, divining, animal magnetism and scrying.

    Today is Good Friday, Crucifixion day of Jesus Christ

    Finished!

    When Jesus had tasted it, he said, “It is finished!” Then he bowed his head and released his spirit.

    —John 19:30

    The cross was the goal of Jesus from the very beginning. His birth was so there would be His death. The incarnation was for our atonement. He was born to die so that we might live. And when He had accomplished the purpose He had come to fulfill, He summed it up with a single word: finished.
    In the original Greek, it was a common word. Jesus probably used it after He finished a project that He and Joseph might have been working on together in the carpentry shop. Jesus might have turned to Joseph and said, “Finished. Now let’s go have lunch.” It is finished. Mission accomplished. It is done. It is made an end of.
    So what was finished? Finished and completed were the horrendous sufferings of Christ. Never
    again would He experience pain at the hand of wicked men. Never again would He have to bear the sins of the world. Never again would He, even for a moment, be forsaken of God. That was completed. That was taken care of.
    Also finished was Satan’s stronghold on humanity. Jesus came to deal a decisive blow against the devil and his demons at the cross of Calvary. Hebrews 2:14 says, “That through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is the devil” This means that you no longer have to be under the power of sin. Because of Jesus’ accomplishment at the cross, finished was the stronghold of Satan on humanity.
    And lastly, finished was our salvation. It is completed. It is done. All of our sins were transferred to Jesus when He hung on the cross. His righteousness was transferred to our account. So Jesus cried out the words, “It is finished!” It was God’s deliberate and well-thought-out plan. It is finished—so rejoice!
