Anthony - Jesus is definitely real. Many others (including the devil) do NOT want you to believe, and throw all sorts of "reasons" why you shouldn't believe. But here's the truth: If there was a time where you ASKED Jesus for forgiveness for your wrongs, and asked Him to come into your heart - then you are saved - whether you feel it or not (as long as you were sincere when you asked). If you haven't done that, or don't remember, do it now. Doubts DO come. So here's how to deal with that: START reading your Bible (New Testament first please. You can skip over those "he begats" for now. Read it fairly slowly trying to take it in. Don't forget to ask God to show you what He want's you to see, and do your best to keep a sincere heart. SECONDLY - and VERY important - ASK Jesus to help you to know He's real and that He is with you. Then pray to Him on a regular basis. That's like just having a conversation with a very close friend. Anthony - before you "give up" on what you DO know, try these things for a couple of months and just see what happens. I have no doubt you'll come to know for sure that He's real. I'll pray for you.
that is an answer that you have to find deep inside yourself. People here will tell you that Jesus is real or that he is not real. But deep inside you know the answer to your question already. I believe in God, and I know he is real, but you have to believe or not believe, I cannot mess with your free will. Good luck finding the answer to your question.
There were a number of individuals in the Palestine area claiming to be a messiah a couple of millennia ago. One of them could have been named Jesus. It is interesting that two of the greatest names in the Bible (David and Jesus) left no tangible archaeological evidence of their existence.
Jesus is always with us. He may not be in a human formation, but he is in our souls, hearts, and minds. Nobody knows when he will come again, accept for God. And when Jesus does come again to earth as a human, the mountains will tremble and the seas will turn to dust. Jesus is always with us and he is alive and working in our hearts, but he just isn't in "human" formation.

This is from a Historian. "Flavius Josephus, in his Jewish Antiquities (XVIII, 64 [iii, 3]), mentions certain events in the life of Jesus, adding: “And the tribe of the Christians, so called after him, has still to this day [about 93 C.E.] not disappeared.” Pliny the Younger, governor of Bithynia in 111 or 112 C.E., faced with the ‘Christian problem,’ wrote to Emperor Trajan, outlining the methods he was using and asking for advice. “I have asked them in person if they are Christians,” wrote Pliny. If they admitted it, they were punished. However, others “denied that they were or ever had been Christians.” Put to the test, not only did these offer up pagan sacrifices but they even “reviled the name of Christ: none of which things, I understand, any genuine Christian can be induced to do.” In answering this letter, Trajan commended Pliny on the way he had handled the matter: “You have followed the right course of procedure . . . in your examination of the cases of persons charged with being Christians.”—The Letters of Pliny, X, XCVI, 3, 5; XCVII, 1. ( So historically Jesus did indeed exist ) it-1 (jw.org)
Yes Jesus is real, if you don't know this, I challenge you next time you loose something pray to him and say God if your real answer my prayer. Listen for his response it's worked for me. Try it !!!!!!!!
There is no contemporary historical evidence he existed. Not a peep from the Romans, arguably the best record-keepers of all time, despite the fact that they mentioned other figures in the tale such as John the Baptist and Pilate. Not a word from he several dozen historians and scholars that were in and around Jerusalem at the time. Jesus was never mentioned until DECADES after the fact. Even then, it was by a man who was attempting to garner tithes for an offshoot of Essene Judiasm, Paul. Paul also did not mention "Jesus", but merely "Chrestus" (the "Christ") which was a title not a name, and told nothing of the supposed life of this Christ. The Gospels came even later, contradict each other on pertinent details such as when he was born, and are unsupported by any outside evidence. Christians usually cite two sources: Josephus and Tacitus. Problem is, Josephus wasn't born until after "Jesus" supposedly died. His Flavinium Testimonium only mentions Jesus twice, and both are considered by theologians to be fraudulent third century additions since the syntax and context of the passages doesn't match the rest of the text.
