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,[1][2] historical,[3] and fiction[4] 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.
