    Socrates never wrote a word, but Plato used him in his own writings to express his own ideas. Did Paul use Jesus the same way? Used the name Jesus to spread his own beliefs? Jesus, like Socrates, didn’t leave any writings of his own behind, but had someone speaking on his behalf. Really, we quote Paul more than anybody.
