The lack of contemporary references to Jesus may not mean much either way. It could be that it was politically expedient to write him out of history and that the gospels are like a first century Wikileaks.

On the other hand giving Pontius Pilate a namecheck in the Nicene creed, to give a link to recorded history, could be good bit of creative writing at a time when they were picking and choosing which bits to put in the bible.
