LOADED with historical sources and quotes other than from the Bible itself!
The Extra Biblical Evidence for the Historicity of Jesus Christ.
Oct 6, 2014
Documentary: Evidence for the historical existence of Jesus Christ outside of the Bible.
Some people have began making outrageous claims that Jesus never existed. These claims are historically baseless and nonsense. Even if one rejects the Bible as evidence of His existence, the research of the many independent secular accounts of Jesus of Nazareth, resoundingly concludes he was in fact a real historical person. ‘These independent accounts prove that in ancient times even the opponents of Christianity never doubted the historicity of Jesus, which was disputed for the first time and on inadequate grounds by several authors at the end of the 18th, during the 19th, and at the beginning of the 20th centuries.
“The result of the examination of the sources out side of the new testament that bear directly or indirectly on our knowledge of Jesus is to confirm his historical existence of the movement after His death at the hands of the Roman governor in Jerusalem, and the penetration of Christianity into the upper strata of society in Rome itself by the later first century.” – Howard Clark Kee – Boston University.
“Regardless of what anyone may personally think or believe about him, Jesus of Nazareth has been the dominant figure in the history of Western Culture for almost 20 centuries. If it were possible, with some sort of super magnet, to pull up out of history every scrap of metal bearing at least a trace of his name, how much would be left?” -Yale Historian Jeroslav Pelikan
As F. F. Bruce, Rylands professor of biblical criticism and exegesis at the University of Manchester, has rightly said: “Some writers may toy with the fancy of a ‘Christ-myth’ but they do not do so on the ground of historical evidence. The historicity of Christ is as axiomatic for an unbiased historian as the historicity of Julius Caesar. It is not historians who propagate the ‘Christ-myth’ theories.”
Otto Betz concludes that “no serious scholar has ventured to postulate the non-historicity of Jesus.”
