I suppose if he did die and did not come back from the dead, and the catholic church had not lied but told us the truth about it, then they would have had to show his writings in order to show he was worth following.

Would the different brands of early christianity have developed differently from the way they did, as many tried to decide on the nature of his being divine and human, or mostly divine or mostly human or what?
I'm more interested in what individuals now think rather than the church.

Aren't his teachings on how to live your day to day life the really important thing rather than (IMO) any frankly unbelievable supernatural abilities.

Buddhists believe that Buddha was just a man and his practical teachings are considered the important thing.
