Did Jesus Really Exist?
Some people querry whether Jesus of Nazareth even existed. Is there any evidence which proves that he actually is an historical person who walked, talked and breathed on earth? Is there any evidence for this Jesus of Nazareth outside of the Bible? While the Bible gives us a lot of evidence of who this Jesus of Nazareth was, it is interesting to widen the investigation. In this clip below you can listen to the testimonies of secular historians such as the Jewish historian Josephus and the Roman historian Tacitus.
Blow off the dust from your Bible and read the Gospels especially the accounts following the death of Jesus and you can see something in the account of Tacitus which confirms the account from the Gospels. I gave this talk at a Eucharistic Convention in Auckland, New Zealand in 2004. Other clips of mine can be found via www.youtube.com/kiwiauthor
