This is a WordPress repost of an excellent article authored by Mark Goodnight from his Cyber Penance website. Mark’s post makes use of a post authored by J. Warner Wallace from coldcasechristianity.com. It’s really interesting to see what J. Warner Wallace did with some of the information he gleaned from hostile anti-Christian sources. Take a look, I’m pretty sure you will be glad you did!
J. Warner Wallace of Cold Case Christianity (one of my top ten recommended apologetic resources) has this awesome blog Is There Any Evidence for Jesus Outside the Bible? which he shows that you can get the core elements of the gospels from hostile sources outside the Bible, both pagan and Jewish. In each case, he points out that while each of these sources are hostile to Christianity, they agree with and serve to strengthen some of the core facts about and claims of Christianity. I’m going to give a brief overview of his blog, kind of like a Cliffs Notes version of his blog, but I recommend going to the link to his blog above and reading it in full for yourself.
