In 2012, over 6,000 documents were uncovered in the archives of the Vatican. Since then, historians have been pining over ever single one. Last week, they released some of their findings.
More evidence of Jesus.
So far they have determined the writings are authentic, they date back to 20-45 AD and were written by a Roman Officer and Historian Marcus Velleius Paterculus. In the text, it talks of a great leader who preformed miracles, traveled with disciples and was named Jesus.
From the article: "This new text from an author known for his reliability, brings a brand new perspective on the life of the historical character that is Jesus of Nazareth. It comes to confirm the Gospels on the facts that he was known for accomplishing miracles and that his sheer presence in a town was enough to attract crowds of people.....Many scholars have already saluted the finding as one of the greatest breakthroughs ever realized in the study of the historical life of Jesus."
Of course there are some scholars that are challenging the text, so more tests will be done, but these findings are so amazing. As if there isn't enough evidence of Jesus' life and miracles, we have another piece of text that supports His claims.
I believe one day the physical evidence will be so overwhelming that Jesus came to earth...to heal, seek and save the lost, that you would have to be in serious denial or so blind to not believe it.
