Did Historical Jesus Really Exist?

And now, does it matter?
Time and myth have done their work,
as usual hope anoints

To try to get to the bottom of it
would be like chipping Everest
with a rubber mallet 
to a grain of sand,
or explain to Icarus the practicality of an altimeter
—by the time you got anywhere
it’d be a moot point
