Ancient Evidence for Jesus from Non-Christian Sources Evidence from Tacitus Although there is overwhelming evidence that the New Testament is an accurate and trustworthy historical document, many people are still reluctant to believe what it says unless there is also some independent, non-biblical testimony that corroborates its statements. In the introduction to one of his books, F.F. Bruce tells about a Christian correspondent who was told by an agnostic friend that "apart from obscure references in Josephus and the like," there was no historical evidence for the life of Jesus outside the Bible.{1} This, he wrote to Bruce, had caused him "great concern and some little upset in [his] spiritual life

The Daily Office SSF came to be used in far more places and by far more people than had ever been envisaged and, in 1989, a revision of the text was authorised, in the light of increased liturgical knowledge, advances made in other parts of the Church and not least in the use of language.

The Resurrection: What is the evidence? The Resurrection: What is the Evidence? If you were the judge presiding over murder case, you would want to be absolutely certain before convicting the defendant. If the prosecutor calls his key witnesses, but each tells a different story, his case would be very shaky. The defense attorney will argue for the acquittal of his client by demonstrating the weakness of the prosecutor's case. He will impeach the state's witnesses by showing how their accounts are contradictory. The resurrection narratives in the Gospels may be convincing testimony for people who have not read them very carefully.

14 Natural Items for Your Alternative First Aid Kit May 04, 2011 | 87,363 views Share Matador Network has assembled a list of 14 natural items everyone should have on hand for first aid. Here are a few: Echinacea LATIN PRAYERS Sign of the Cross: In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti. Amen Chris Harrison - Visualizing the Bible This set of visualizations started as a collaboration between Christoph Römhild and myself. Christoph, a Lutheran Pastor, first emailed me in October of 2007. He described a data set he was putting together that defined textual cross references found in the Bible. He had already done considerable work visualizing the data before contacting me. Together, we struggled to find an elegant solution to render the data, more than 63,000 cross references in total.

INDIAN TERRITORY In the late eighteenth century white settlers began migrating from the original thirteen colonies over the Appalachian Mountains and into the "West." Around the turn of the nineteenth century they slowly began to move into the eastern parts of the Northwest Territory, which had been established in 1787, and into parts of the Old Southwest, or Alabama, Mississippi, and western Kentucky and Tennessee. They viewed the Native peoples who resided there as an obstacle to be conquered or pushed further westward. The United States negotiated the Louisiana Purchase in 1803.
