"he had seen a vision in the temple" - All about Jesus, but How Can It be Proved?

All about Jesus, but How Can It be Proved?

Today none doubts that Christ Jesus really existed 2000 years ago, although some scholars doubt existence of Moses and Abraham.

And, there is no reliable and objective way to verify the contents of the Gospels: Mark, Luke, Matthew, and John.  Even nobody can correctly name the authors or editors of these Gospels.  There are also no other historical documents written by Israelites, Greeks, Romans, or others to prove the believability or credibility of the Gospels.  Even the Vatican has no material to prove what is written in the Gospels is true.  None could show concrete evidence for Jesus' life and how the Gospels came to be written.

But with reference to some documents written by a Jewish author and Roman officials in the Roman Empire in the first century, it could be thought that it is true that a man called Jesus lived, preached, got arrested, and got executed by the Roman authority in a tie up with Jewish priests in Jerusalem in the first half of the first century.  And, it is a fact that many Jewish people and Roman citizens came to believe the teaching of God Jesus preached or the doctrine that Jesus was the Son of God.

Compared with what Christianity has achieved in these 2000 years, its origin and its founder are so vague.  What is more interesting is that after the fall of the Roman Emperor before 500, for almost 1,000 years ordinary Europeans and other people could not read the Gospels in their own languages.  During this dark period of 1000 years, the Vatican established itself.  However, it was after the English version of the Gospels were written in the 16th century that Shakespeare, Newton, and other geniuses could develop their talent and achieved excellent works.

The point at issue is that it is responsible for the Vatican that it has not fully and effectively studied and investigated the origin of Christianity and proof about life of Jesus in these 2000 years.

From a viewpoint of conspiracy, the Vatican has neglected the need to reveal historical truth of Christianity and Jesus, so that people could have no material with which to think about how Christianity was established, what the true life of Jesus was, and how the Gospels came to be made out.  Due to Vatican's negligence, people had to follow blindly the Vatican and still today many people rely on the Vatican.

Although it is not good to deny 100% the Vatican, the Vatican is not God so that it can make a mistake.  And, it seems that it made a big and fatal mistake.

Luk 1:21 And the people waited for Zacharias, and marvelled that he tarried so long in the temple.
Luk 1:22 And when he came out, he could not speak unto them: and they perceived that he had seen a vision in the temple: for he beckoned unto them, and remained speechless.
Luk 1:23 And it came to pass, that, as soon as the days of his ministration were accomplished, he departed to his own house.
