One thing everybody overlooks is, not everybody in the days of Jesus could write; they certainly could speak and they certainly could read but writing was a luxury. Except for a handful of people, Jesus wasn’t looked at as a personality worth documenting mainly because the Jewish leaders painted Jesus as a heretic. As for Socrates, he probably wasn’t written about because he went around harassing people with outrageous questions.
