Jesus is not a historical figure. There is no evidence of his existence. He is a religious character.

I just took the answers from the quiz I sourced. Whether you disagree or not, you can try disputing it with Quizmaster.

Plus you could argue the same for Muhammad which I don't see you complaining about. Now there is evidence for both of them being real people, it's what happened to them or believe that can be disputed. I have my own beliefs, but I'm sure you can tell which one I believe.

There is evidence for the existence of both Jesus and Muhammad. However there is considerably more evidence for the existence of Muhammad. It is (just) possible to argue that Jesus actually didn't exist but it is a minority view. Muhammad was very influential within his lifetime and held political power as well as being the founder of a religion. Although I disagree with the analogy, both are historical figures as well as religious ones.

Again, just using the answers from Quizmaster's quiz. Plus the answer Gandhi should be acceptable nevertheless.

Gandhi is the correct spelling. It also appears like that on Dan's original quiz.

Yeah, I guess I didn't notice that before. I must be dyslexic or something. Should be spelled correctly now

Nice quiz, and a neat tieback to the original quiz. One thought, it might help a bit if the images are zoomed in for some clues so that the head sizes are roughly the same for everyone.

Thanks for the comment, Jerry. About your suggestion, I did mostly zoom in on the faces in the pictures, although some of them I thought if I didn't zoom in as much you could see their attire which might help in figuring out who they are.

Please do not show the picture of Prophet Muhammad (SAW). It is disrespectful, maybe just show the name in Arabic as the picture. Thank you.
