I am not talking about the messiah, the son of God who resurrected from the dead but simply a man named jesus of Nazareth who claimed to be the son of God and got crucified for it.
There is many Roman and Jewish historians and generals who wrote about jesus and the early church, I can't say what they said exactly because it's too much but here are most of the historians who wrote about jesus:

Even the talmud wrote about him, and confirmed that he existed and was crucified for false claims and blasphemy. The enemies of the church also wrote about him which proves that he really existed. Being God or not is what is up for debate. But his existence is a fact. The original texts from the gospels were found also and the existence of his deciples is proven

No historical evidence has ever been found to suggest that such a person actually existed.
But I agree with what you said, that a man called "Jesus of Nazareth" existed, but not the son of God. Most of those biblical texts were also written 2 centuries after his death.
My arts history professor said there were hundreds of street preachers like Jesus. Now whether Jesus could actually perform miracles is a whole nother story.
There are even some theories now that Jesus was actually Mary Magdaline.
