Best one gets a prize! Bible Evidence The Bible is split into 2 partsthe Old Testament and the New Testament. The Old Testament is all set BEFORE Jesus. The New Testament is to do with Jesus' birth, life, death and resurrection. Most of our information about Jesus comes from the New Testament in the

Bible. There are 27 books written by about a dozen authors. There are also other books from the same time which were not included in the official collection of the New Testament. All these speak of the existence of Jesus as being the reason for Christianity. Many authors were put to death because of their beliefs about Jesus. People do not go through a painful death for someone who did not exist. A large part of the New Testament is made up of the GospelsMatthew, Mark, Luke and John. The Gospels were written by people who either knew Jesus personally and witnessed the things they wrote, or by people who knew people who knew Jesus personally and were eye witnesses to his life. EG. Marks gospel was based on what Peter told him about Jesus. Peter was one of the twelve disciples. Lukes gospel records lots of details about Jesus birth. His source was Mary the mother of Jesus.

To many, this would prove that Jesus was realit can be seen as a historical document of Jesus and his life. Could any of these writings have been exaggerated? Could details have been added that did not really happen? What would be the reason for that? rcheological Evide There have been archaeological findings which support some of the stories which have been told in the Bible. Archaeology can tell us about places, what happened there and give us an idea about when. Lots of discoveries have been made that show the details in the stories of Jesus in the Bible are accurate E.G. places mentioned /Kings/ Emperors in power at time of Jesus/ Roman occupation of Palestine etc. Pontius Pilate stone: In 1961 archaeologists found a stone inscription at Caesarea in Palestine. It came from a temple that Pontius Pilate built there in honour of the Roman Emperor Tiberius. Its translation in English reads:

To the divine Augusti Tiberieum...Pontius Pilate...prefect of Judea...has dedicated this. Tombs: The fish symbol is an ancient one in Christianity, representing both Jesus and his followers. Jesus had told Peter, "I will make you fishers of men" (Matthew 4:19). But the fish through an acrostic also became a symbol of Jesus himself. The ICHTHUS symbol helped Christians JohananThe crucified man identify one another as believers. In 1968 an ossuary (coffin for bones) was found in Jerusalem with the name Johanan on it. These dated back to between 7 and 70 AD. Inside were the bones of a man who had been crucified. The heel bone had an iron nail through it and the legs had been broken. This indicates that crucifixions did take place as a form of punishment by the Romans.

So it seems that some of the stories in the Bible are true! Does this mean that the stories of Jesus are? Historical Evidence Virtually all historians agree that Jesus existed. There were a number of historians who wrote about Jesus and his lifemany of these were either not religious or were not Christians. Although there are some differences between what different historians say, there are two universally accepted occurrences in Jesuss lifethe fact he was baptised by John the Baptist and that he was crucified. Historians will analyse sources and carry out extensive research before reaching their conclusions. Flavius Josephus Probably one of the most famous historians to write about Jesus. Joesphus was a Jew who was not a follower of Jesus. He said that Jesus was a real historical person, and that he was a teacher. Most notably, he claimed that he was a worker of wonders (miracles) and gathered a band of

followers, who continued to follow him after his death. Tactius, Roman Historian Tacitus was a loyal Roman who was suspicious of the growing number of Christians. However, he still wrote and accepted that Jesus existed. He said that he was a teacher who was crucified by Pilate. This fits with the New Testament evidence. Does this really prove anything? Is this just someones opinion? Shroud of Turin A shroud is a burial cloth that Jews would have used to wrap a dead body in before burial. The Shroud of Turin is a linen cloth bearing the image of a man who looks as if they have suffered serious physical trauma, in a way which is similar to that of the crucifixion. It is kept in a church in Turin, Italy hence where it gets its

name from. The image seen here is associated with that of Jesus. It is much clearer in the black and white negative than in the natural colour. Multiple streams of blood run down the forehead. What could have caused this? A possible sign of a puncture to the wrist ? So this is all based on a photo taken of a cloth? Some of the negative pictures do look similar, but that could dust be one big coincidencewhats to say this is Jesus?
