Christ myth theory
The Christ myth theory (also called the Jesus myth theory, Jesus Myth, and Christ Myth) is the theory that the person named Jesus in the Bible's Gospels is a myth. However, there is a big difference between what the words myth, historical, and fiction mean. Because of this, there are many different views about how the Jesus in the Gospels is a myth. Most Biblical historians do not think Jesus was a myth.
