Almost all the reasonable and educated people believe that Jesus was a real person, a religious teacher who lived some 2,000 years ago. Even the Koran mentions Jesus 25 times. Although Islamic scripture does not portray Jesus as His apostles, it does not call into question its existence. There is too much evidence for those who want some authority to deny the existence of Jesus.
To believe in Jesus, as his apostles believed and encouraged others to believe, of course, means more than just to believe in His existence. It is obvious that before Jesus was crucified, His existence has never been questioned.
His identity was a problem then, and remains a major problem today. Thus, the apostles of Jesus presented him to the world as he had imagined himself. They were witnesses of what Jesus said and did. What they saw and heard convinced them to believe in Jesus.
