Or is it a foolish myth?

Prior stance to watching the video is the same as my stance after watching the video.
I'm aware that the consensus among historians is that Jesus probably existed. But I've viewed the supposed evidence for his existence and it is pretty flimsy. The excerpts by Tacitus, Pliny the Younger and Josephus do not have much validity considering that they lived long after the death of the supposed historical Jesus and are kind of biased in nature.
The Romans were also pretty good record keepers, yet there are little to no records of this person who threatened Roman rule in Jerusalem at that point in time.
However, I'm willing to change my view in the event that new evidence is presented.1
