1 Many have undertaken to draw up an account of the things that have been fulfilled among us, 2 just as they were handed down to us by those who from the first were eyewitnesses and servants of the word. 3 With this in mind, since I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, I too decided to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus, 4 so that you may know the certainty of the things you have been taught.
So there were many writings and eyewitnesses and other documents one of which is called the sayings of Jesus that aren't there now but theres references to them.
Before they were cannonised or formed into the gospels
I ask you do you think they could of remembered all that if they hadn't written some of it down at the time ?
This is exactly why I hate talking to Christians.
You have no proof, so you ask questions as though the questions are the proof.
I have no idea if they've written it down. I have no idea in what order, how the stories were disseminated. You don't know either. We do know that there was about 20 years of oral tradition before any of his stories show up in writing. But the point is, the "Do you really think" only works if you have evidence. You have none to support your point. So stop it.
Theres several references from Respected Romans. That they had heard of Christ and or his cult.
So take that with the gospels I think there is proof that he was at least there and people had heard of him.
