What can we learn about Jesus and early Christianity from a Roman historian who hated Christians? As it turns out quite a bit. Some skeptics will even go so far as to dispute that Tacitus’ testimony about Jesus is even valid. I address those concerns as well as 6 key facts we can learn about Jesus from Tacitus.
- The Jesus Legend, Paul Rhodes Eddy and Greg Boyd
- Did Jesus Exist?, Bart Ehrman
- Can We Trust the Gospels?, Peter J.Williams (Not Who Wrote the Gospels? 🤦)
- Jesus Outside the New Testament: An Introduction to the Ancient Evidence (Studying the Historical Jesus), Robert Van Voorst
