Core Christianity: Tough Questions Answered

Is There Historical Proof That Christ Was Really Born?

Episode 865 Show Notes 

From the Show

We not only have the testimony of the apostles, you also have extra-biblical sources that talk about the existence of Jesus. The first century Jewish historian Josephus and the Roman historian Tacitus, are examples. Jesus did really exist and even some of the faith’s harshest critics wouldn’t disagree with that.

Is There Historical Proof That Christ Was Really Born?

Questions in this Episode

  1. How do I love my family members who have invited me to their same-sex wedding while maintaining biblical teachings about sexuality?
  2. I wanted to know if there is any other historical evidence that Christ was really born other than the Bible? I have heard some atheists claim that he might have entirely been a myth.
  3. I am old now and can’t go to church. Why does my mind bombard me all the time with the things that I have done wrong with things I have done in my past? I know I am saved, but how do I stop this?
  4. I have many friends in the Charismatic Church who delight in giving me books about the prayer of faith for healing and everything else in life. I see so many verses taken out of context in their teachings. My question is: do I attempt correcting my friends, or do I just say, “thank you,” pray for them, and move on?
  5. What do you think of Messianic Judaism?
