If Jesus did not exist why do people question their own disbelief?
faith is the belief in something that you cannot necessarily see, hear, or touch. A lot of people have a problem believing in something that way but still hold out some hope that maybe it is true, its hard to think that maybe there is just nothing after death, and that your whole life is spent just surviving, i think that even the more outspoken disbelievers hold out for something more at the end of their days here.
i agree with the above poster
also for me i think that when a whole world, a whole religion, millions of people, and society is telling you jesus existed then people think, 'well wait a minute if they are all saying that then maybe its ME whos wrong, maybe he did exist', questioning their own judgment
everyone questions themselves at some point, especially when all these people are telling you your wrong, or its true.
if you are not involved in this belief that is held by millions you may well start to want to be involved in this belief, feeling left out with your disbelief, and want to be involved in society's version of things as most people have a need to be accepted and liked by society.
its also known as 'peer pressure'
there has been tests done on groups of people, that when involved in a question test and they see the rest of the room answering a certain way, they will adapt their answer to fit with the rest even if they started off by choosing another answer
this can be explained by both of my answers, ie need to fit in and questioning your own judgment.
Today, few will dispute the fact that a man named Jesus lived 2,000 years ago in Judea who many called a great teacher and His teachings had a vast impact upon the world from then to present. Given this then, we must evaluate what He said and determine the veracity of it. This then is quite a long discussion so for the sake of time, consider this writing about Jesus: The renowned Christian writer C.S…
Most people- Christian or not- agree that Jesus did exist, but there is debate about whether or not he actually did what it says that he did in the Bible (walking on water, turning water into wine, curing a sick man). There is a possibility that Jesus did not exist. However, it would make more sense historically if he did exist.
Not a great deal is known about Nazareth in the time of Jesus and it is continues to be debated whether a town even existed until long after his childhood. The town certainly existed by around 80 CE, since it is mentioned several times in Matthew's Gospel, which most New Testament scholars now date to the 80s of the first century. Whether Nazareth existed before 70 CE, when Mark's Gospel was written, is less certain…
This is probably an opinion question, so here is my opinion :) In my opinion, I think that Israel and the Jewish people have contributed greatly to the "religions" that exist today. first Judaism, and then Christianity through Jesus (who was a Jew). they both have been around for thousands of years, they contributed the Torah, and the Bible, which is comprised of the Torah and the letters of the apostles and the words of…
Answer: Jesus of Nazareth in A.D. 29* Many centuries later, this same question effectively answers the post-resurrection question, "Is Jesus a Christian?", because ... Chronologically, Jesus cannot be "Christian" since ... - Christianity did not exist until after Jesus' resurrection. - Jesus did not create Christianity (nor any religion). - Jesus did not teach Christianity. ... which is not to say that Christianity does not include who Jesus is or what he taught. So, what…
Synagogues as we know them today didn't exist at the time of Jesus. Answer: I'll leave the answering of the question to others, but I must point out that the above answer is untrue. Synagogues have been found scattered throughout the northern part of Israel from at least as far back as the era concerning which the question was addressed.
Very many people believe that God is a myth. It is not possible to prove definitively either that God exists or that he does not. There is uncertainty about whether Jesus, the man, really existed. Some believe that Jesus actually did exist, as a wandering preacher, but that he was not the Son of God.
