We're talking religion on this board now but race and politics are not allowed? Talk about hypocritical. Not everyone is religious, by the way. Plus, this thread wasted me a click. That's about 1/10th of a calorie.

Only Thomas was a disciple of Jesus.

Luke and Jon were the names of writers of the gospels, all of which were written over a hundred years after the supposed death of some random dude there's no evidence ever existed.

You're confusing apostle with disciple. The apostles are the twelve, of which John was one. Jesus' disciples were many, many people who likely would have followed him as well and just not been among his twelve closest. Luke was quite likely one of these.

Only Thomas was a disciple of Jesus.

Luke and Jon were the names of writers of the gospels, all of which were written over a hundred years after the supposed death of some random dude there's no evidence ever existed.

No evidence except for having four biographies written about him, or being referenced by contemporary sources like Josephus, or spawning an entire belief system. People can choose to believe anything they want about the religion itself but to think that the person never existed would require the assumption that Caesar, Genghis Khan, Plato, etc. were mythical figures as well seeing as the evidence for their existence is even less comprehensive.

Also, the writer of the book of John was the disciple John, as he referenced himself in the book, and the earliest extant manuscript fragments place it's authorship within the lifetime of Jesus' contemporaries.

Unlike those other historical figures you listed, there are no contemporary accounts of Jesus, including Josephus. That's a really stupid fuging thing to suggest and a pitiful comparison.

As far as inspiring a belief system, can I assume you then believe Muhammad to be the one true prophet or what

as long as we don't end up with twelve disciples on the field

Penalty for that would be five yards and two fishes.

Inb4 tinderbox. Also the Bible is a great work of fiction.

So after reading this entire thread is it safe to say that Jesus was a linebacker then?
