There is little doubt, however, that the character of Jesus the alleged Christ (the messiah of the Jewish people and the son of a god who performed sorcery and magic) could not have existed as portrayed in the New Testament. If a man named Jesus was a religious figure in antiquity, it isn't the same character of the bible.
For that Jesus (clearly a different person), there is no evidence.
Okay, for one, Jesus was not a "cult leader." Two, He did not perform sorcery or magic.
