Did Jesus Exist and Who Is the Christ?

"...Jesus Christ, i.e., the Man-God of the Christians copied from 
the Avatâras of every country, from the Hindu Krishna as well as the 
Egyptian Horus, was never a historical person. He is a deified 
personification of the glorified type of the great Hierophants of 
the Temples, and his story, as told in the New Testament, is an 
allegory, assuredly containing profound esoteric truths, but still 
an allegory.  Every act of the Jesus of the New Testament, every 
word attributed to him, every event related of him during the three 
years of the mission he is said to have accomplished, rests on the 
programme of the Cycle of Initiation, a cycle founded on the 
Precession of the Equinoxes and the Signs of the Zodiac...." 

"The legend of which I speak is founded....on the existence of a 
personage called Jehoshua (from which Jesus has been made) born at 
Lüd or Lydda about 120 years before the modern era....In spite of 
all the desperate research made during long centuries, if we set 
aside the testimony of the 'Evangelists,' i.e., unknown men whose 
identity has never been established, and that of the Fathers of the 
Church, interested fanatics, neither history, nor profane tradition, 
neither official documents, nor the contemporaries of the soidisant 
drama, are able to provide one single serious proof of the 
historical and real existence, not only of the Man-God but even of 
him called Jesus of Nazareth, from the year 1 to the year 33. All is 
darkness and silence....The biography of Jesus was invented after 
the first century...."
