Historical Apologetics


Some claim that Jesus Christ, Pontius Pilate, and other Biblical figures have no basis in fact.  But consider the testimony of Tacitus, Roman senator who wrote a history of the Roman Empire from the reign of Tiberius (AD 14) through Nero (AD68).  Called the Annals of Tacitus, his final work is considered by modern historians "the pinnacle of Roman historical writing".  Clearly he had no sympathetic view of Christianity, but observe the historical facts he records (The Annals of Tacitus, Book XV, Section 44):

"Consequently, to get rid of the report, Nero fastened the guilt and inflicted the most exquisite tortures on a class hated for their abominations, called Christians by the populace. Christus, from whom the name had its origin, suffered the extreme penalty during the reign of Tiberius at the hands of one of our procurators, Pontius Pilatus, and a most mischievous superstition, thus checked for the moment, again broke out not only in Judaea, the first source of the evil, but even in Rome, where all things hideous and shameful from every part of the world find their centre and become popular."
