Jesus Christ as Ethiopian propaganda ?

Josephus has shown to be something of either a forgery or a mistranslation, and Tacitus has been criticized as well. It's likely that the Jesus Christians, and to a lesser extent, Muslims, believe in isn't the real Jesus that existed.

It is not true. Josephus and Tacitus can't be mistransleted.

Only the mythicists ( not scholars at all ) think that Tacitus can be mistransleted.-- That is how propaganda works.

There is something wrong with Joesphus for sure. At least most of serious scientists agree that original text was changed, either on purpose, or because of some kind of mistake.

How can you prove that?


Christianity spread throughout Egypt within half a century of Saint Mark's arrival in Alexandria as is clear from the New Testament writings found in Bahnasa, in Middle Egypt, which date around the year 200 A.D., and a fragment of the Gospel of Saint John, written using the Coptic language, which was found in Upper Egypt and can be dated to the first half of the second century.


You need a non-Christian source... as usuall .

And one is not enough.. you need at least 50 different non-Christians source..

I don't know if there is a scholar - like Tacitus - born in Ethiopia..

So far you didn't give any proof at all. Middle Egypt, Upper Egypt is not Ethiopia I guess.

200 AD is not the 1st century AD. Egypt is also not Ethiopia and Coptic is not an Ethiopian language.

In short, your evidence has nothing to do with your claim.

Without getting involved in this discussion. Shouldn't the ones making the claims be the ones bringing proof? And in this case we're talking about massive conspiracy claims.

Sure, the sources one side has are possibly, maybe, can be, biased; But are they? Proof? It's he who makes the accusations who has to prove them, not the accused who has to prove his innocence.

If we'd condemn people for possibly, maybe, could have, etc committed the crime then ohh boy would a lot of innocent people today be in jail/executed.

EDIT: Edited some hyperbolas out since some people don't have a touch for manners of speaking.
