There is so much debate on who Jesus was. Mainline Christian scholars say he existed. Non-Mainline Scholars say that he never did.
I would like you to consider the following info, and connect the dots. Do you see what I see? Ancient Paintings hold the key.
Sabazios (Ancient Greek: Σαβάζιος, Sabázios, modern pronunciation Savázios) is the nomadic horseman and sky father god of the Phrygians and Thracians. In Indo-European languages, such as Phrygian, the -zios element in his name derives from dyeus, the common precursor of Latin deus (‘god’) and Greek Zeus. Though the Greeks interpreted Phrygian Sabazios as both Zeus and Dionysus, representations of him, even into Roman times, show him always on horseback, as a nomadic horseman god, wielding his characteristic staff of power.
