Well, no, not exactly. I’m not sure about Josephus, but Tacitus writes:
called Christians by the populace. Christus, from whom the name had its origin suffered the extreme penalty during the reign of Tiberius at the hands of one of our procurators, Pontius Pilatus,
Bear in mind that Tacitus was writing years after the great fire which destroyed Rome and the scapegoating of Christians by Nero. He was not writing from firsthand knowledge or sources of Christ’s existence.
“Are?” the two historians have been dead for almost 2,000 years. Why are you writing in the past tense? Unless you think that Tacitus and Josephus are modern historians.
The Romans believed in some pretty bizarre things, such as Jupiter transforming into a swan and impregnating a queen, or that Bacchus was eaten alive by titans and reformed as a god. I doubt that Tacitus would’ve had much trouble accepting miracles, though he’d probably have attributed to them sorcery.[quote=“Greatest_I_am, post:35, topic:112598”]

Jeremiah 12 : 10 Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness.
pastors = people of the church
vineyard = higher consciousness accessed through spiritual practise.
desolate wilderness = the part of us activated by the Pineal Glad which now lies dormant if not activated during meditation.
Mate, this is bloody insane.
