What Should We Expect If Jesus Really Lived?
Does the Life of Jesus Exhibit a Pattern Unique to Real Historical Persons?
Was This Guy For Real?
Critics often challenge the "historicity" of Jesus. Did He actually live? Was He a real person in history? Can we trust that we know the truth about His life and teaching? Skeptics have attacked the person of Jesus from every angle, searching to find evidence that He was either a work of fiction, or a man whose life has been grossly distorted and exaggerated. But significant people have impacted history over the ages in a pattern that has demonstrated their true existence, importance and influence. Jesus of Nazareth was one such 'impact player'. The 'ripples' He created as a result of His life and teaching demonstrate the fact that He was not only a real person in history, but God incarnate.

We are familiar with this sort of historical reaction and pattern; we've seen it repeatedly over the millennia. In fact, the 'ripple effect' we've come to expect from the appearance of key figures in history provides us with a template that we can use to evaluate the historicity of people who seem too amazing to be true.
