We have a full “Truth Revolution” show on this topic. To hear the 30-minute show go here.

Dave: Did Jesus actually exist? In our last Truth Shot we pointed out that even Christopher Hitchens, the famous atheist believed so.

Jeff: That’s right, Dave. But he’s not the only one.

Dave: Who else? I mean besides you!

Jeff: What? I don’t count?

Dave: Not for this!

Jeff: Alright. There’s a number of ancient historians – non-Christian historians – who record events surrounding Jesus.

Dave: And it’s important to note that they weren’t Christian, so we know they weren’t biased.

Jeff: Right! One of them, for instance, was a first century historian named Tacitus. He was born about 55 A.D.

Dave: What did he say about Jesus?

Jeff: Well, he talks about Christus, that’s the Latin name for Christ, who suffered “the extreme penalty” (that would be the crucifixion) of death under Pontius Pilate.

Dave: Which is actually what the Bible described!

Jeff: Yep… he even refers to the belief that Jesus had risen from the dead. Of course he calls it superstition because he wasn’t a Christian, but…

Dave: But, it is good confirmation for Jesus’ existence

Jeff: Yep!

Dave: More on this, next time!
