Historical Evidence of the Crucifixion

By on

Apologist Bob Siegel adds new light to the discussion of Good Friday and Easter with historical evidence of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Bob is from a Jewish background. Perhaps for this reason he has spent time researching the ancient Jewish historical texts from the time of Jesus, as well as the better known Roman ones. As we discuss elsewhere in more detail, Muslims have difficulty accepting that Jesus died on the cross. Bob tells us that the fact is well documented by sources outside of the Bible. He also mentions that the Jewish histories and commentaries admit that Jesus did fantastic miracles, but attributed them to sorcery. They also say he was put to death for blasphemous statements, like claiming to be God.
