I think he was probably real, and possessed healing qualities which people, understandably, thought miraculous. Probably by chance accounts of his healing have become exaggerated and distorted through history until the story we know today bears little resemblance to what actually happened; I think this kind of thing probably happens quite a lot.

He definitely existed, whether or not he was the Son of God, nobody knows for sure.

There is proof someone called Jesus existed at that time, but everything else was so obviously made up.

Jesus was a real person, yes.

Not everything was made up at all. A lot of it happenend, just not always the way the bible tells the story. The bible glamourises situations for its own end, or even worse blatently copies ancient stories from Ancient Greece, Egypt and Persia.

I don't believe The Bible is from God. I believe it was written by man and Jesus is just a fictional character.

Saying he's a con man is a bit harsh.... esp since we wouldn't even know.

Jesus was no con man. He never said once that he was the son of God. The New Testament might imply it, but alas none of the gospel writers actually knew Jesus. In fact most of the gospels were written around a life time after Jesus died. The only gospel writer who acutally knew Jesus was Paul. Strange how his wrtings were disregarded by the early christians. Why you ask? His story was far closer to the truth, it told of Jesus as a normal human being, e.g. he had sex and got drunk etc. Such activites was deemed not to be setting a good example and so the Pauline gospel was disregarded.

The closest gospel (i.e. almost truth) which is in the bible, is the account by Mark.
