Did Jesus exist? There has been a recent surge in public discussion surrounding this question, with many scholars ('mythicists') claiming that Jesus did not exist. Maurice Casey, one of the most important Historical Jesus scholars of his generation, seeks to provide a clear and balanced view of what can be said about Jesus, and of what can't.
