Doesn't it depend upon the revelation you receive, not just what mental assent you believe to? I mean if it is scientifically a revelation knowledge of who Jesus is, as Jesus asked of Peter "who do you say that I am?" "The Messiah ...son of God" Peter answered, then Jesus said FLESH and Blood DID NOT REVEAL THIS TO YOU (i can't either) , but my Father in heaven. ....and On THIS ROCK (the revelation from a Revelator) I will build my church= ecclesia (called out ones, that are gathered in this revelation) (ROCK=PETRA is not Peter=petros). Scientifically ONLY a revelation has occurred to increase the knowledge of Jesus as son of God and now the in-habitation of God (Col 2:9) not the nature, as some mistranslated, but ALL the fullness of the DIVINE ONE dwells in Jesus bodily, presently, progressively. Jesus is the Lord God and is the Spirit, the breath, the in-breathing (pneuma) of the Existing One, YHWH, the Being One that exists: Father God is all in Jesus, alive and in an expressed heavenly bodily form called a Glorified Form as well as the Comforter He sends to those , who (you?) believe... scientifically, revealed Himself as to you, persuaded to believe, a receiver.
Around 63 B.C., Pompey of Rome conquered Palestine, putting all of Judea under control of the Caesars. This eventually led to Herod being made king of Judea by the Roman emperor and senate. This would be the nation that taxed and controlled the Jews, and eventually executed the Messiah on a Roman cross. Roman, Greek, and Hebrew cultures were now mixed together in Judea.
