…of Jesus founding the Church? The obvious, Occam’s Razor answer is “No”. I often run into people who posit some vague theory that Jesus never existed or the Church was founded by somebody else, but they tend to not be very specific about how this stacks up against information that might call their theory into question. Basically, it appears to be a game of suppressing information in the New Testament they dislike and exaggerating information in the New Testament that favor their conspiracy theory, plus just making stuff up.
