I am to the point where i am question the "bible"--and stuff that is in it--i know that probable aint good--but i do think we all have doubts of some sorts--the doubt i have lately is--and keep in mind i dont know the "bible" real well anyways so maybe this is in there--but i know it talks about Jesus' birth and then talks about his death and resurrection--but how much does it REALLY talk about his life and his growth--how come it does not--and how do you know he really existed then??? just a question
plz dont judge me with this question or doubt--just pondering and questioning

It is a very good thing to question religious authority. Do we know Jesus was a real person? No, but the historical record for a person upon whom the mythsÂ became centeredÂ is good enough to reasonably believe that he did exist. Was he the saviour whose coming was foretold? That is certainly up for debate, I would think that the best way to consider that question is by reading the opinions of Christian and Jewish theologians. Did this historic person really preform miracles? It is somewhat less reasonable to believe those things happened literally, however the wise realize that nothing is impossible. To consider that question you can, again, look to theologians, or you can consider it through the study of comparative mythology (authors like Joseph Campbell & David Leeming are experts on that subject). Don't feel guilty for questioning, if there is a God who created you, he gave you a mind and curiosity for a reason.
