The Testimony of Scripture

Was Jesus a Historical Person?

This is Ken Ham, a missionary with a passion for God’s Word and the gospel message.


Yesterday we learned that almost no serious scholars—even non-Christian academics— think that Jesus was just a made-up figure. Now, the evidence is just too strong that He really lived.

The New Testament was written by men who personally knew or encountered Jesus. And most of it was written within just a few decades of Jesus’ life. Lots of people saw Him alive. Jesus fed the 5,000, healed the blind and the lame, and rose from the dead, and most of those were still alive when the gospels were written. If Jesus never even lived and the disciples just made Him up, somebody could have just pointed that out that no one had any memory of any such man! Jesus really lived in real history!
