"How confident can we be that Jesus Christ actually lived?
 
The historical evidence for Jesus of Nazareth is both long-established and widespread. Within a few decades of his supposed lifetime, he is mentioned by Jewish and Roman historians, as well as by dozens of Christian writings. Compare that with, for example, King Arthur, who supposedly lived around AD500. The major historical source for events of that time does not even mention Arthur, and he is first referred to 300 or 400 years after he is supposed to have lived. The evidence for Jesus is not limited to later folklore, as are accounts of Arthur."

Our faith is not based on historical  facts that LORD JESUS CHRIST lived and died, and vice-verse, that is legit as to live by sight. But by the initial free gift of GOD, that is by grace and through faith and born again from above, we have come to Salvation believing in CHRIST JESUS our LORD and His teaching of grace and truth from Heaven in these last days GOD spoke through to all of us, Jews and Gentiles, written in the New Covenant, where GOD gave and made with us Christians. They are are to 'do/practice' and 'abide' in His teaching there and bear much fruits, and their fruit should abide.

 

Apostle Paul said that to the world, whom are blind, our Gospel is 'unwise' and 'weak', even today with how many historical and artifacts proof have been presented through books, tele and media, but sadly they remain blind and love darkness instead. This because, for it is written; 

 

"The god of this world have blinded the eyes of unbelievers."

 

And they can be saved only through, and for it is also written;

 

'But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become sons of GOD, even to them that believe on His name.: Which were born, not of blood, nor the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of GOD.' (John1:12&13)
