Historical Evidence for Christianity

There is numerous historical evidence for Jesus and Christianity that are readily available on the Internet, should one wish to actively seek them, but in this particular post I shall be providing links from Bishop’s Encyclopedia of Religion, Society and Philosophy, who is known for his thoroughness. While James Bishop indicates that, generally speaking, he is agnostic about many things that others take for granted, his agnostic perspective does not stop him from denying historical evidence. While I have not read, nor necessarily recommend, all of Bishop’s posts, the following posts from James Bishop website are recommended:
