The Real Jesus
The historicity of Jesus relates to whether Jesus of Nazareth is a historical figure. Nearly all historians accept that Jesus existed, and standard historical criteria have aided in reconstructing his life
Scholars differ on the beliefs and teachings of Jesus as well as the accuracy of the details of his life that have been described in the gospels, but virtually all scholars support the historicity of Jesus and reject the Christ myth theory that Jesus never existed.
The New Testament represents sources that have become canonical for Christianity, and there are many apocryphal texts that are examples of the wide variety of writings in the first centuries AD that are related to Jesus.

Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.
Jesus was a Jewish Rabbi who lives by practicing the laws of the Torah. Jesus never brings a new concept of God other than what Moses declared in Deuteronomy 6:4, nor did Jesus left anything new. Jesus teaches Judaism to other Jews.
Jesus was first of all a mystic.
This can be seen from one of his statements:
“The kingdom of God is within you.”
Only a mystic could have spoken these words and
“Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you”
