    We have direct evidence of a very small fraction of things mentioned in history books. Archeology and Ancient History rarely collaborate. We have what we have because of dumb luck: some modern cities are built on top of older ones and we dig things up from time to time. Most ancient sites are well beneath the surface of the earth. In a more temperate or tropical climate, things are really buried and decomposed.

    We only recently found direct evidence of Pilate. A Roman Governor. Troy was found after years of searching. Unless something was written in stone, it wouldn't last more than a few hundred years.

    l@wate rocket:

    There is a lot of meat on the bones of what you posted. And that is what has driven man crazy for centuries: should we live happily in a world of fantasy and hope, and possible superstitions. Or should we search the earth and heavens for truth, at the risk of finding disappointment, despair and forlorn. And in the middle of it all, there are all the false prophets, church apologists, politicians, and plain old phonies all pulling and pushing to get followers allegiance and money. And that is why, if one can not find it in their own heart they are not going to find it in the mouth of others. Look for truth in all the right places: science: natures god.

    @Ioweye
    No need to be pedantic about it. Very few of the names in the scriptures are the actual name that would have been used. I can refer to St. Peter without referring to him as Petros or Cephas. It's the same with Jesus name. Yes, Yeshua is closer to what the original pronunciation would have been but that doesn't really make the distinction any more precise.

    In fact, the name Jesus was not common in the Holy Land. Jesus is the Greek version of Joshua or Jeshua. There were lots of men with that name including the One we call Jesus. He probably would not have been called Jesus in this life.

    How do you find remains of a resurrected being that ascended into heaven? Either you believe the Bible, or you don't. If you believe in the resurrection, then you can have hope of an after life with loved ones. If you don't believe in the resurrection, then you can't possibly believe that there is a reward or punishment for the lives we live, and that would be a sad state of affairs.
