TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO
Dave: Did Jesus actually exist? We’ve already looked at a few ancient historians.
Jeff: And there are more. We can’t cover them all. But Pliny the Younger is an interesting Roman author and administrator.
Dave: And he was born around 61AD.
Jeff: From his writings and Judgments, we can clearly see that Christ was worshiped as a deity by early believers. Most likely because of the Resurrection, which he refers to as “excessive superstition”.
Dave: So HE didn’t believe, but he confirms that there were people worshiping Jesus as God very early on. It’s not like this was a superstition that grew over the last 200 years.
Jeff: Right. Just a few years after Jesus’ death, we have evidence that He was worshiped. But Pliny also mentions communion which Jesus instituted.
Dave: Right. In Matthew 25.
Jeff: and he talks about the Moral Rules that Jesus taught about.
Dave: That’s MORE confirmation from ancient historians that Jesus Really DID exist.
Jeff: That’s right.
