Is Jesus in history books?
Here's the answer:
Yes, there is historical evidence of Jesus in books.
Jesus is real and He lived during first century Israel. The Bible gives proof of Jesus' existence. We know the Bible is 100% true. There are also sources outside of the Bible that testify to Jesus’ existence.
Josephus was a Jewish historian who documented Jesus’ existence. He confirmed that Jesus was the Christ. Julius Africanus confirmed that Jesus was real. He documented the events surrounding Jesus’ resurrection.
The Babylonian Talmud gives proof for Jesus’ crucifixion. Greek writer Lucian of Samosata documented Jesus’ teachings and His followers. All of the Gnostic Gospels make mention of Jesus. There are history books that document the existence of Jesus Christ.
"God has breathed life into all Scripture. It is useful for teaching us what is true. It is useful for correcting our mistakes. It is useful for making our lives whole again. It is useful for training us to do what is right" (2 Timothy 3:16).
"Jesus explained to them what was said about himself in all the Scriptures. He began with Moses and all the Prophets" (Luke 24:27).
"Jesus also did many other things. What if every one of them were written down? I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written" (John 21:25).
