I have already heard the reasons why some people think he didn't walk the earth, can those of you who believe Jesus did walk the earth explain and give historical proof?
Please don't turn this into a debate on if he walked the earth or not. I am trying to gather information on Jesus being a real man.

your second article is great. I am going to copy just one of the paragraphs. It is why I started thinking this. We can say John lived and calculate his birthday but John's words about Jesus seem suspect.
No one doubts that the above names are well known from both sacred and secular sources, as well as archaeological evidence, and are therefore historical. The same is clearly true of Jesus of Nazareth. But why, then, is Jesus not permitted the "luxury" of actually having lived as did the rest of these? Why the double standard here?

Josephus is not proof- he is highly disputed,accused of embellishment and outright lying. His work can both be correlated and proven inaccurate which does not make him a reliable source.
