Christ of Faith Must Be Jesus of History

Without the Jesus of history the Christ of faith is merely a docetic figure, a figment of pious imagination. The Christian religion claims to be founded on historic fact, on events which happened sub Pontio Pilato; and having appealed to history, by history it must be justified.
--George B. Caird, Jesus and the Jewish Nation
