Ted Wright on Jesus Mythicism

"Ever since I’ve heard about Jesus mythicists, the question I’ve always wanted to ask them is: 'What are you smoking?!'  Furthermore, I frankly wonder why anyone takes them seriously.  If history is at all knowable, with any degree of certainty, then the New Testament is one of THE most remarkable and reliable primary sources in the ancient world!  I think it’s interesting - that radical critics & skeptics of the New Testament read quite a bit of material in order to 'debunk' it as a hoax or as mythology, but they curiously don’t read about the history of critics and skeptics of the past, whose own theories been debunked and disproven. Through the years, the New Testament has stood strong like a stone-clad lighthouse anchored to bedrock, while the waves, foam and torrents of the critics have crashed against it to no affect (John 10:35b)."
