Allah Vs Crucifixion by ajiboye007(m): 8:07am On Jul 31, 2017

IT IS A SERIOUS MATTER!

Let's call a spade a spade........
One very interesting way to study the Bible and really enjoy it is to reading it side-by-side with historical sources external to the Bible. The Bible give us historical information and Bible writers were not the only human beings that could write. Several events happened in history and there were very notable events that were written down by prominent writers particularly as they affected the socio-political landscape of that time. Let's take for example The Great Fire of Rome. It was a very devastating urban fire that started on the night of 18th July in the year 64 and it lasted six days before it was eventually put under control. To know more about this, feel free to google "The Great Fire of Rome" and you will read several accounts of the incident.
.
One notable historian who included the story of The Great Fire of Rome in books was Tacitus. His full name, Publius Cornelius Tacitus. He was born in the year 58 (about 26 year after the crucifixion of Jesus). Tacitus was a great writer and a senator in the Roman Empire under the Emperor Nero. Tacitus wrote a book captioned THE ANNALS and in this book he documented the history of the Roman Empire from the reign of Teberius Ceasar to Nero (from the year 14 to the year 68). You can liken this to a Senator of today who documents the history of his country from 1963 to 2017. In my country Nigeria for example, we have many great writers who have written the history of Nigeria from pre-independence to date and these works are used in schools as authentic history of the country. This is not peculiar to Nigeria but it is so in every country. In the case of Tacitus, he was not just a great writer but also a senator. Meaning he had access to the Roman senate's records, which provided a solid basis for his work. If you come out to say, "Tacitus was not there when Jesus was crucified, so it was only made to appear so to him", it mean you are deliberately being unreasonable. The political history of a people is a lasting heritage that can never be stolen away by any religion or fairly tale.
.
The writings of Tacitus is of great importance to investigators of Biblical history because by authoritatively documenting the history of Rome from the era of Tiberius, to the era of the government under which he served, he no doubt wrote about events of great interest us. The Bible says it was during the reign of Teberius that the ministry of Jesus came took effect and we find that the writings of Tacitus covered this same period and beyond.
"Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judaea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of Ituraea and of the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias the tetrarch of Abilene, {tetrarch: or, governor of four provinces}. Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God came unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness. And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins;" (Luke 3:1-3)
.
In the above scripture, Luke gives accurate record of the period when John the Baptist Announced Jesus and Jesus started his ministry The Biblical story goes on until the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. Please take not of the politicians in power whose names are mentioned in the writings of Luke.
.
1. Tiberius-The Roman Emperor
2. Pontius Pilate- The Governor
3. Herod- Tetrarch of Galilee
4. Philip the brother of Herod - Tetrarch of Ituraea and Trachonitis
5. Lysanias - Tetrarch of Abilene
.
The above were political office holders appointed by the Roman Emperor supported by the Senate. The names of two Jewish high priests in authority are also mention, Annas and Caiaphas.
.
Jesus came at a time significant not only to Christian history but also to Jewish and Roman political history. You cannot silence politics neither can you alter political history. For example, time will tell whether or not Nigeria will survive as a country but if after 632 years from today, a prophet comes from a mountain in Ivory Coast to tell our descendants that there was never a Biafra agitation, guess what will happen. Our descendants will simply produce the writings of pro-Biafra activists and anti-Biafra activists as evidence to prove that there was such an agitation at such and such a time. Names of people will be mentioned, writings of various commentators for and against the agitation will be used as references to show that there's something wrong with that prophet. They will not hesitate to call a spade a spade.
.
Tacitus in his documentation on the Roman Empire from Tiberius to Nero wrote of the crucifixion of Jesus, The Great Fire of Rome, Persecution of Christians and several other happening of notable political significance. These are official documentation that have not and cannot be denied. Tacitus is not the only one that wrote. There several other historical evidence.
.
For a prophet to jump down from an Arabian mountain to say that these things never happened here on earth but was only made to appear so, really makes me wonder what to call such a prophet.
