[quote=urquhart]The Jewish historian Flavius Josephus had a lot to say about the historic person Jesus Christ, including:
“About this time lived Jesus, a man full of wisdom, if indeed one may call Him a man. For He was the doer of incredible things, and the teacher of such as gladly received the truth. He thus attracted to Himself many Jews and many of the Gentiles. He was the Christ. On the accusation of the leading men of our people, Pilate condemned Him to death upon the cross; nevertheless those who had previously loved Him still remained faithful to Him. For on the third day He again appeared to them living, just as, in addition to a thousand other marvellous things, prophets sent by God had foretold. And to the present day the race of those who call themselves Christians after Him has not ceased.”
A quick note on Josephus just so you are aware, there is some debate to the overall section in Book 19 of the Antiquities of the Jews. Jesus was mentioned, but most proof texts circulated today carry a portion that may have been added at a later date. Thanks and God Bless.
