SERIES: "Ancient Non-Christian Historical Evidence for Jesus of Nazareth - Thallus & Pliny"

"Is there any historical reference to the darkness and earthquake that happened during the Crucifixion of Jesus?

"Did the Roman Emperors ever have correspondence concerning Christ?"

In today's video, we will be looking at what two interesting Roman citizens, Thallus (Roman Historian, 52 AD) and also Pliny the Younger (Roman Governor, 112 AD), had to say concerning the historical personage of Jesus of Nazareth.

Some interesting features of these 2 non-christian historical sources are that one of them mentions the darkness over the land and the earthquake that happened during the crucifixion of Christ, while the other is a direct correspondence with the most powerful man on the planet at that time in history, Emperor Trajan.

I hope this information is educational, answers any questions you may have, and strengthens your faith in the veracity and historicity of the Christian worldview.

Until next time.... have and Intelligent Faith!
