Larry Hurtado Quote on Jesus’ Mythicists

Finally, I’d myself ask why, when scholars of various stances on religious issues (Christian, Jewish, unaligned, etc.) in the relevant fields (Christian Origins, Classics, Ancient History,etc.) pretty much all agree that a historical Jesus of Nazareth seems required to account for the origins of the Jesus-movement, some people invest such emotional concern and efforts to wriggle around for some other position on the matter.
