No proof is needed to validate the deity of God or the nature of Christianity. However the more we trust in our God the more he rewards us with proof of His great love for us. Belief in Jesus doesn’t come through artifacts, although they may be nice to have.
Via Christian Post:
“I found that nobody was talking about this in the media. They were still repeating theories about Jesus and the gospels that are a century old — the idea that Jesus was a deluded fanatic, an apocalyptic prophet who thought the world was going to end in his lifetime.
“One of the main arguments furthered by secular scholars is that there is no proof that Jesus or anyone else mentioned in the New Testament actually existed. However, Hutchinson wrote that discoveries of ossuaires (burial boxes) in 1990 and in 2002 make that argument moot.
In 1990, construction workers uncovered the ossuary of the high priest Caiaphas. After analyzation, Hutchinson said that almost all archaeologists accept the Caiaphas ossuary as authentic.
It is also believed by some scholars that an ossuary discovered in 2002 is the burial box of James the Just, who many Christians believe is either the half-brother or cousin of Jesus.
However, Hutchinson argues that the discovery of the Caiaphas ossuary and the potential authenticity of the James ossuary is enough to quell the secular claim that there is no proof that anyone mentioned in the New Testament existed.
“They are discovering archaeological proof, if it is authentic, then it is the first archaeological proof for Jesus. That’s just really, really exciting that they are coming up with the burial boxes of people mentioned in the New Testament,” Hutchinson said.
“A lot of what the people say in the claim that Jesus doesn’t exist is that there is no archaeological proof for any of these people,” Hutchinson added. “They said the same thing about Pontius Pilate, that there is no archaeological proof of him but in 1961 they uncovered an inscription in Caesarea, which proved that Pilate existed.”
Incredible evidence continuing to come forward, but there still are people who doubt and denial the truth.
Yet again many lived in Christ’s day and they didn’t believe.
But this is a Blessing to the skeptics that eyes have not been opened!
