Do we have any evidence about the existence of Jesus or the rise of Christianity from sources outside the New Testament? Is it true that passages about Jesus in the writings of Josephus have been proven to be fabrications? Joining the panel is historian Paul L. Maier, author of In The Fullness of Time and editor of Josephus: The Essential Works (originally aired June 27, 2010).

    I really appreciate and share Mr. Maier's enthusiasm! It is hard to get my wife to get this excited about extra-Biblical evidence.

    One thing would be really great if it could be found: some sort of evidence of the people who came back to life during/after Jesus' time on the cross. I mean, this should have a huge impact, right? These people probably would have needed to get jobs again, and maybe get their property back? What to think of relatives and their reaction to getting their loved ones back?
    Then again, maybe the Jewish leaders got rid of these resurrected peeps, just as they wanted to get rid of Lazarus.

  • Great talk, its just one more example of how the scholarship of Bible-hating academics is so lacking. There's more supporting literature and its closer to the events for Jesus than Julius Caesar.
