Evidence of Jesus

freeimage-5250873-high“What proof do you have that Jesus ever existed outside of the Bible?”

“Your belief in Jesus is just a crutch. He never even existed.”

If you’ve ever been challenged this way and struggled for answers, read this article by Simon Gathercole in The Guardian:

What is the historical evidence that Jesus Christ lived and died?

It contains clear, readable, answers to these and similar questions, such as:

  • How confident can we be that Jesus Christ actually lived?
  • What did non-Christian authors say about Jesus?
  • Is there any archaeological evidence for Jesus?

Even if you don’t read the whole article, make sure you read the last paragraph. It asks the most interesting question.
