The other sources that are non-Christian do not paint Jesus as a God, or non-human. He is Jesus. To claim otherwise, is a silly apologetic attempt at interpreting Paul's epistles. You accuse HJ's of apologetics, I can accuse MJers of doing the same thing.
Minor nitpick: Scripture? I might be mis-understanding the english use of that term, but isn't that a Christian term that we skeptics shouldn't use?

But in the New testament you can look at writings like the gospel of John and Colossians, where Jesus is clearly presented as a pre-existing divine being.

Old habits die hard and even as an atheist, I still use the word Scripture when referring to the Bible.
