N. T. Wright on Jesus' Existence

(Times Square)

I'm re-reading portions Jesus and the Victory of God. Here's a sentence from Wright on Jesus' existence. "I have taken it for granted that Jesus of Nazareth existed. Some writers feel a need to justify this assumption at length against people who try from time to time to deny it. It would be easier, frankly, to believe that Tiberius Caesar, Jesus' contemporary, was a figment of the imagination than to believe that there never was such a person as Jesus."

I've posted a few things on this matter here, here, here, here, there (for some variety), y aqui (displaying my multilingual ability). The unscholarly "Zeitgeist" gets debunked here.
