My final extra-Biblical witness to the historical Jesus will be Pliny the Younger.  He was the nephew of Pliny the Elder, a famous encyclopedist, who died in a volcanic eruption A.D. 79.  Pliny the Younger became governor of Bithynia in northwestern Turkey.  His writings to Emperor Trajan have been preserved from the second century to […] Read more

Another notable ancient historian was Cornelius Tacitus.  Many consider Tacitus the most important Roman historian of the 1st century.  His writings actually lend support to the accuracy of Josephus which is important from a historical standpoint. Quoting from Annals 15.44, Tacitus writes that Emperor Nero blamed Christians for Rome’s fire in 64 AD in order […] Read more

Josephus wrote a longer section about Jesus in his book Antiquities.  Some controversy surrounds this passage.  We read from Antiquities: “Now there was about this time Jesus, a wise man, if it be lawful to call him a man; for he was a doer of wonderful works, a teacher of such men as receive the […] Read more

Assessing the […] Read more

Is God Responsible for All Evil?

I will continue to answer the objections from the atheists in Balboa Park in San Diego.  I will use the verses they supplied in the handout they gave to anyone who was interested. Their next objection was Isaiah 45:7 in which they try to imply God is responsible for all evil.  Isaiah 45:7 “The One […] Read more
