Post Jesus had certain telekenetic, psychokenetic, etc...

Maybe this "Jesus" wasn't a son of god and endowed with healing abilities by his supposed "father". Maybe this weird man just had certain other abilities (Such as telekenetic, pscyhokenetic, telepathic..etc "powers")that couldn't be explained back then, and the people were so blown back by this that the only way they could explain it was that he was a "son of god". Anyone care to talk about this idea?

Was he charismatic and persuasive? Probably. Deceptive? Possibly. Telekinetic/psychokinetic/telepathic? No. Neither is anyone else.

"...that couldn't be explained back then.." Are you saying they can be explained, now?

Or that these miracles are myth which evolved
long after the fact, as evidenced by the increase of claims with the later texts...

A.

B. Or that these miracles are myth which evolved
