There is no evidence of a God/Jesus Christ mentioned by anyone from the Roman era. Nor by artifacts that have been discovered or by their historians. They were around 2000 years a go. So what happened?

Why would there be artifacts ? ____ Christians walk by faith Not by sight [ 2nd Corinthians 5 v 7 ] That means they did Not make any images, etc.

Wasn't Pilate part of that 1st century era?
Wasn't Josephus part of that 1st century era ?

So in other words, they didn't exist at the time! They would have still be written about by non Christians.. i.e Roman Historians!

Ah Josephus, the one you bunch always bring up...

The video is towards the bottom in the comments section. It's two hours long. It's also an interesting read on what archeologists have found to be the ark on Mt. Ararat in Turkey.
Unlikely as the Ark's wood would likely have been used for their homes at first. There is no indication in Scripture it continued to exist. Even if a structure exists how would we know who built it unless it was the exact dimensions of the Ark (a square box) with a proper age for the wood and other evidence. Anchors would be unlikely as it settled in placeand drifting was not an issue.

' James the brother of Jesus '- Jewish Antiquities XX, 200 ( ix, 1 )

Josephus wrote that during the interval between the death of Governor Festus, about 62 CE, the arrival of his successor Albinus the high priest Ananus ( Ananias ), convened the judges of the Sanhedrin and brought before them a man named James the brother of Jesus.

The spirit has been quenched a bit in this thread by the unbelievers. I didn't really want a debate, I just wanted other Christians to give their opinion, and I got it. It's always good to be skeptical, but full of hope at the same time as scripture says. Hope is healing.

I'm looking forward to the movie, Russell Crowe is a great choice.
