The Christ myth theory (also known as the Jesus Myth theory, Jesus mythicism, or Jesus ahistoricity theory) is "the view that the person known as Jesus of Nazareth had no historical existence." Alternatively, in terms given by Bart Ehrman as per his criticism of mythicism, the historical Jesus did not exist. Or if he did, he had virtually nothing to do with the founding of Christianity."According to mythicists, the accounts of Jesus are mostly, or completely, of a mythical nature; and if there was a historical Jesus, close to nothing can be known about him. Most Christ mythicists follow a threefold argument: they question the reliability of the Pauline epistles and the Gospels regarding the historicity of Jesus; they note the lack of information on Jesus in non-Christian sources from the first and early second century; and they argue that early Christianity was syncretistic and mythological from the beginning, as reflected in both the Pauline epistles and the gospels. Therefore Christianity was not founded on the shared memories of a man, but rather a shared mytheme.The Jesus Myth theory is a fringe theory, supported by few tenured or emeritus specialists in biblical criticism or cognate disciplines. It deviates from the mainstream historical view, which is that while the gospels include many legendary elements, these are religious elaborations added to the accounts of a historical Jesus who was crucified in the 1st-century Roman province of Judea.This Jesus Myth app includes:A ParableIn ConfidenceIs Jesus A Myth?The Problem StatedThe Christian DocumentsVirgin BirthsThe Origin Of The CrossThe Silence Of Profane WritersThe Jesus Story: A Religious DramaThe Jesus Of PaulIs Christianity Real?Is The World Indebted To Christianity?Christianity and PaganismSome Modern Opinions of JesusAnother Rhetorical Jesus"We Owe Everything To Jesus"A Liberal Jew On JesusAppendixWe hope you'll enjoy the contents of this app. Please leave a rating and review to let us know how it went for you.
