Jesus and the New Testament or “The Memoirs of the Tooth Fairy?”
There is no historical reference to Jesus' life, death or the crucifixion―nothing at all. John E. Remsburg's The Christ: A Critical Review and Analysis of the Evidence of His Existence, lists the following contemporary historians/writers who lived during the time, or within a century after the time, that Jesus was supposed to have lived:
To the above I also add the account of a great new testament event "...the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many." (Matthew 27:45-53) There is NO mention of this in the entire world's history--none at all-- nor of Herod's so-called slaughter of the infants.
Appion of Alexandria Arrian
Aulus Gellius Columella
Damis Dio Chrysostom
Dion Pruseus Epictetus
Favorinus Florus Lucius
Hermogones Silius Italicus Josephus
Justus of Tiberius Juvenal
Phlegon Pliny Elder
Pliny Younger Plutarch
Pomponius Mela Ptolemy
Quintilian Quintius Curtius
Theon of Smyrna Valerius Flaccus
The abundant writings of the authors named in the foregoing list could easily form a library. Yet in all this mass of history and literature, according to Remsburg, "aside from two forged passages in the works of a Jewish author, and two disputed passages in the works of Roman writers, there is to be found no mention of Jesus Christ." Nor, do any of these authors make note of any of the Disciples or Apostles―increasing the embarrassment from the silence of history concerning the very core or foundation of Christianity.
The New Testament ― and its story of Jesus and his band of men ― is only fiction, concocted from plagiarized pagan mythology of 900 or more years BCE It is a fraud being perpetrated on all those not "honestly" willing or unable to dedicate the time needed to expose its lies, deceptions, distortions and creations of non−existent history. The New Testament stands in direct opposition to all within the SOURCE DOCUMENT ― TORAH ― that was given by our Creator to all mankind.
