The story of Jesus has been one of the most frequently told in world history.   But I am a little confused.   Did he really say he was going to return?   Here are a series of questions I have about this subject:

When Was Jesus Born?

No one has been able to ascertain exactly when Jesus was born.   Scholars typically place the year of his birth at around 4 BC (Before Christ) or BCE (Before Common Era).

Was Jesus born before he was born?

When did Jesus die?

As with his birth, there is no certain year for his death.   Scholars put his death at around 30 CE (Common Era).

Why wasn't the year of his death noted anywhere if it was that important?

What did Jesus tell people about the coming Kingdom of God?

He told them that it would take place during their lifetimes. (Matthew 23:26 and 24:34)

Why don't Christians acknowledge that this prediction was wrong?

When did the Apostle Paul, one of the earliest Christian writers, begin to preach?

Paul makes no mention in his letters of the destruction of Jerusalem, which took place in 70 CE. It is reasonable to assume he must have written them before that point in time.   Paul was an early persecutor of Christians and subsequently had his "conversion" to Christianity some time later.   So, it is widely thought that he wrote his letters somewhere around 50-60 CE.

What is significant about Paul's letters?

Paul states in 1 Corinthians 15:6 that there were 500 witnesses to the risen Jesus but gives no names even though he says they are still around.

Why didn't he produce these witnesses instead of giving what sounds like hearsay?

When were the Gospels put into writing?
