Did the Jews keep historical writings of Jesus out of history to cast doubt of his existence?
yeah, cause there's so little written about jesus.
you have some basis for that surmise or you just feel like taking another potshot at jews?
if you were a member of the jury would you say that it was possible.
if i were a judge that question would never be put TO a jury since there is no evidence substantiating it.
That's how trials work. You don't get to make up stuff and put it to the trier of fact.
Directed verdict in favor of defendant. See how that works.
But that wasn't the question, would you say it is possible.
sorry, i don't engage in baseless jew-bashing.
But given the way the Jews thought about Jesus at the time, it could have been possible.
What historical writings about Jesus do you think were kept out of history?
Are you talking about say the Book of Enoch that both Jews and Christians eventually removed from the canon? The Jews because it was too Christian. The Christians because it was too Jewish?
Are you suggesting that there are scriptures outside the Bible that teach of Christ?
That's something we can both get behind.
But thinking about it, I don't think i engage in non-baseless jew bashing.
i don't think you're generally a jew basher at all.
