We can only speculate who Jesus might have been assuming to believe his emanates from a single origin. However, I think Jesus was more of a composite character roled up from a few sources (rather than a single source) by the time we read about him in the Gospels. He originates from different historical prototypes. From this perspective, Jesus cannot be identified as an individual per say, since too many mythical and historical leads can be found to be his Q type source.
