Closing their eyes

    There is an abundance of evidence, both in and out of the Bible, that Jesus Christ lived, died by crucifixion, and was resurrected from the dead. They who have chosen to close their eyes to the evidence feel compelled to seek some other explanation for the influence that Christ's teachings have had on mankind.
    That the Dead Sea Scrolls do not mention Jesus Christ by name is of no consequence. After finding no mention of Tiberius Caesar in the scrolls, no rational person would conclude that he never existed.
