OK after a brief look I found this site. Seems fairly respectable and was the first that didn't start out by saying that the gospels were inerrant and therefore jesus must have existed.

Have to say, I'm not particularly convinced. The evidence certainly doesn't seem sufficiently strong to support a statement like:

Jesus - almost cerainly a historical figure, though not the same as the guy in the Gospels!

It's really not that important as even if he did exist he certainly wasn't a god. I just get irritated that this mantra "there is historical evidence for the existence of Jesus" is constantly repeated. NOT ONE contempory source. In a time when just about everything was recorded.
