Outside in the Bible, study the life of Jewish history or things of Jesus Christ, the most authoritative than Joseph (Flavius Josephus).

Joseph was born in AD 37, his father was the Pharisees, the Pharisees (who was then persecuted Jesus religionist). Joseph is not a Christian, he has no opinion on him. In his time writing a book about the story of Jesus is still circulating in the world. Joseph collected all aspects of the life of a lot of information about Jesus, which wrote the two great works: "Jewish War"(The Jewish Wars) and "Jewish ancient history"(The Antiquities of the Jews). In his "Jewish ancient history"in the life of Jesus made a very detailed description, such as: Jesus is the son of Joseph and Mary, is born of virgin birth.

Known as the Roman Empire's greatest historian Tacitus (Cornelius Tacitus AD55-118?), in his book "Roman Chronicles"(Roman Annals) in respect of that: "Christian is the name of Christ and Come, Christ the emperor Tiberius (Tiberius) in the era of the Roman governor Pontius Pilate's (Pontius Pilate) are executed. "

"Decline and Fall of the Roman History"(The Decline & Fall of Roman Empire) also clearly describe the death of Jesus and Christian development. In addition also records the case of persecution by Christians, although they for the sake of Jesus was crucified, burned or thrown into the lion pit, but they still risked his life to preach the resurrection of Jesus.

There Xue Nice (Suetonius) the "Claudius Biography"(Life of Claudius), Pliny (Pliny the Younger)'s official newspaper, Lu Shian (Lucian) history books, large Cyrus (Thallus) of the Works, royal officials of the Roman Hadrian (Hadrian) records, the report of Pilate killed Jesus, all speak a historical fact that Jesus was familiar with the Roman Empire, he is also a real person in history.
