The Old Testament deals with Jewish history and the myths of the ancient world with whom the Jews have come into contact. 

Previous research about Jesus was confined to Israel only. Researchers did so because they took it for granted that Christianity had begun on Jewish soil only. Therefore the lacking information of the gospels forced researchers to conclude that Jesus was mythical, and not historical. This conclusion was due to the many Old Testament quotations that attribute to Jesus in the New Testament. The Old Testament deals with Jewish history and the myths of the ancient world with whom the Jews have come into contact. On that basis, any nation can write an overview of its history and then use the myths of the ancient world to explain the intervention of gods in its history. Likewise, evangelists, several centuries later, have also been able to associate Jesus, an orthodox Jewish king, with the myths and politics of their times.

Researchers found that the New Testament was written by Greek believers (almost a century or more after the nativity) and based on Jewish history. Furthermore, it is full of contradictions, miraculous stories, and Pagan spirituality. Ludeman wrote that most preserved traditions about Jesus were in blatant contradiction to what he had said and did.
