So never saw financial and other more important reward in their lifetime.
Jesus.He did even better as he was never alive!or if you're a believerJesus.Known by a few when alive but really famous after his death, coming back to life and then ascending to heaven 40 days later trick.

...still not convinced by Jesus. What about that whole 'feeding the 5000' thing? Anyone drawing a crowd like that counts as famous in my book.

You've got three "possibilities" with Jesus - (a) actually existed, son of God, ascended into Heaven, etc; (b) actually existed, did some preaching and had some followers, had a lot of crazy things written about him afterwards; (c) myth, never existed.
Clearly (a) is bollocks, but I don't know enough to say whether I side with (b) or (c). I'm pretty sure he didn't look like Robert Powell though.
He's not Jesus, He's a very naughty boy...
Why is option (a) "bollocks"?
I'm not religious at all, just asking why you would form that opinion. It's an interesting discussion (for possibly another thread?!)
If he'd looked like Robert Powell i'd have been a follower.

Jesus had 5,000 people follow him to dine out on fish and bread. I reckon 5,000 people following you made you pretty famous 2000 years ago.
It wouldn't win him any friends on Come Dine With Me though, would it?
