Jesus and Historians
I read today a theory by some Christians that Jesus was in fact mentioned by some of his historical contemporaries. The list included names such as Josephus, Tacitus, Suetonis, and Thallus. Can anyone lend any credulity to this argument? Or counter it?
"Do not, as some ungracious pastors do, show me the steep and thorny way to heaven. Whiles, like a puff'd and reckless libertine, himself the primrose path of dalliance treads. And recks not his own rede."
