Re: No Results
Hello Theodoric,

Do the writings of Josephus and Tacitus count?

For all I know those accounts may or may not be reliable, but
I always thought there was a general consensus that person
we call Jesus did exist base on non biblical sources.

Regards,

Re: No Results
Well given that the first gospel written was possibly 70 years out from Jesus death. It is not surprising that two of the most relished non biblical source is not without problems. Of course this is not a problem for the faithful, but those who would like some contemporary evidence, such as I, it simply is not available. I would not go as far as to say it will never be found though. Something possibly could yet be discovered.
Thanks for your informative reply.
