- Is Jesus a fairytale invented by first century Jews?
- Did he never historically exist, as many atheists claim today?
Surely, if such an important figure truly existed in history, there would be ample evidence and powerful proof that he actually lived and what he accomplished in his time. Upon investigation of the historical evidence, THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT WE DISCOVER!
Actually, there are no less that 17 NON-CHRISTIAN HISTORICAL SOURCES that detail the life of the historical figure, Jesus of Nazareth. These historical sources include world renowned historians such as Josephus, Suetonius, and even "the Father of History", Tacitus. But they also include two of the most famous men that ever lived, the Roman Emperors Hadrian and Trajan. Beyond these, there are a dozen well established non-christian historical sources that give testimony the life, deeds, death, and impact of the man Jesus of Nazareth.
Though many people are unaware of these historical facts, we are now living in a day and time, when it is simply intellectually irresponsible to doubt the historical existence of the Nazarene. In fact, scholars haved readily admitted that the quantity and quality of evidence we have for Jesus of Nazareth far exceeds accepted historical figures, such as Alexander the Great or Tiberisu Caesar.
This video series will be bringing to light these 17 NON-CHRISTIAN HISTORICAL SOURCES that verify the life and deeds of Jesus of Nazareth, using the research of Dr. Gary Habermas of Liberty University. The goal is to educate Christians and Non-Christians alike on the historical information surrounding the person of Jesus of Nazeth.
For the Christian, this will help you to be better armed intellectually, when confronted by the uninformed criticisms of Richard Dawkins or Christopher Hitchens, who deny that Jesus ever existed.
For the Non-Christian, I hope this information will begin to help you to build a proper understanding of the unshakeable and undeniable historical foundations of the Christian faith and it's Founder, Jesus of Nazareth.
