But Monday of which month, and which year? For that, we need to turn to other sources.
During the 1st century there were 58 total eclipses throughout the world. Between years 16 and 43 AD there were eleven: If Thallus had lived in the 1st rather than the 2nd century, he may have noted the eclipse that was visible in the Persian Gulf in November of 29 — which doesn't fit the Jesus chronology and would have been of negligible impact in Jerusalem, hundreds of miles away.
The early Christians were zealous readers of his work. Though not born until 37 AD and therefore not a contemporary witness to any Jesus-character, Josephus at one point even lived in Cana, the very city in which Christ is said to have wrought his first miracle.
In these complementary works, the former written in the 70s, the latter in the 90s AD, Josephus mentions every noted personage of Palestine and describes every important event which occurred there during the first seventy years of the Christian era.
At face value, Josephus appears to be the answer to the Christian apologist's dreams. In a single paragraph the so-called Testimonium Flavianum Josephus confirms every salient aspect of the Christ-myth: The third century Church 'Father' Origen, for example, spent half his life and a quarter of a million words contending against the pagan writer Celsus.
Origen drew on all sorts of proofs and witnesses to his arguments in his fierce defence of Christianity. He quotes from Josephus extensively. Yet even he makes no reference to this 'golden paragraph' from Josephus, which would have been the ultimate rebuttal.
In fact, Origen actually said that Josephus was "not believing in Jesus as the Christ. It was absent from early copies of the works of Josephus and did not appear in Origen's third century version of Josephus, referenced in his Contra Celsum. Josephus knows nothing of Christians It was the around the year 53 AD that Josephus decided to investigate the sects among the Jews.
According to the gospel fable this was the period of explosive growth for the Christian faith: This is also the time of the so-called "Council of Jerusalem" when supposedly Paul regaled the brothers with tales of "miracles and wonders" among the gentiles Acts And yet Josephus knows nothing of all this: For I thought that in this way I would choose best, if I carefully examined them all.
Therefore, submitting myself to strict training, I passed through the three groups. Josephus elsewhere does record a "fourth sect of Jewish philosophy" and reports that it was a "mad distemper" agitating the entire country.
But it has nothing to do with Christianity and its superstar: These men agree in all other things with the Pharisaic notions; but they have an inviolable attachment to liberty, and say that God is to be their only Ruler and Lord.
They also do not value dying any kinds of death, nor indeed do they heed the deaths of their relations and friends, nor can any such fear make them call any man Lord And it was in Gessius Florus's time that the nation began to grow mad with this distemper, who was our procurator, and who occasioned the Jews to go wild with it by the abuse of his authority, and to make them revolt from the Romans.
And these are the sects of Jewish philosophy. Nothing could better illustrate the bogus nature of the Testimonium than the remaining corpus of Josephus's work. Consider, also, the anomalies: How could Josephus claim that Jesus had been the answer to his messianic hopes yet remain an orthodox Jew?
The absurdity forces some apologists to make the ridiculous claim that Josephus was a closet Christian! If Josephus really thought Jesus had been 'the Christ' surely he would have added more about him than one paragraph, a casual aside in someone else's Pilate's story?
In fact, Josephus relates much more about John the Baptist than about Jesus! He also reports in great detail the antics of other self-proclaimed messiahs, including Judas of Galilee, Theudas the Magician, and the unnamed 'Egyptian Jew' messiah.How should I write my date of birth in the Christian era?
