My contention is that no, he did not. The Existence of Jesus the Christ: http://www.atheists.org/christianity/didjesusexist.html http://jesuspuzzle.humanists.net/home.htm http://www.religioustolerance.org/chr_jcno.htm http://www.nobeliefs.com/exist.htm http://www.infidels.org/library/historical/marshall_gauvin/did_jesus_really_live.html I have heard many people claim that there are historical documents that prove that Jesus existed. I have yet to see them, and when ever asked, people rarely link to anything. I have seen people claim people wrote about him, but this was normally decades after his death. So, my question, did Jesus really exist, and if so, can anyone prove it (or at least show that it was likely)? And no, the Bible is not good evidence for anything.
