First: Jesus (probably)* wasn't a real person.  There is absolutely no archaeological or other literary evidence outside the gospels that indicate that he existed.
Second: We have already covered the fact that the gospels are contradictory - in fact I can off the top of my head think of at least one Biblical story in which Jesus not only eats fish but recommends the consumption of fish.
Third: Are these real gospels?  Canonised or non-canonised?  The actual references on the page do not correspond to proper Biblical abbreviated or non-abbreviated references.
Fourth: In the area that Jesus would have lived and at the time he would have lived, I'm telling you, it would have been practically impossible to be vegan.  Nor would anyone even consider eschewing animal products.  The world then is not like the world today.

Finally: Whether or not Jesus was a vegan has no bearing on current-day veganism.

*I say probably because, as we know, a lack of evidence isn't the same as no evidence.

I'm inclined to believe there was a historical man named Jesus of Nazareth... But everything else is bull.

Agreed - practically impossible indeed!

And you're right EJay - these 'gospels' are not gospels at all, but they are actually fraudulent and relatively modern.

Well that isn't strictly true either. There are instances of vegetarianism dating back to then and beyond. Perhaps 100% veganism (in terms of products, not food) would be a little trickier but I wouldn't even think about saying it would be impossible or unheard of or even close to it.

Yes, of course there are instances of vegetarianism.*  

Veganism?  No.  

And, with the academic background that I have I feel quite confident in saying that it would be practically impossible, and pretty much unheard of.

*Also, whether these people today would fall under the banner of what it means to be veg*n is another story entirely.  The majority of 'vegetarian' factions were so because they felt that meat polluted their bodies.  Personally, I'm not sure how well that idea would go down with veg*ns today.

I don't believe in any religion expect from the natural cycle of nature itself.

Gah.
People twist the bible to make it say whatever they want it to!

God condoned the use of human slaves and people try & twist the bibles scriptures to align them with their modern moral statutes.

It's sh*t.

Well to save a debate over what is essentially a nothing point, we'll just agree to disagree on the possibility.
