Information about Jesus that were Written Outside the Bible Confirms His Existence and Thus Concludes that the Bible is Fact

There are Roughly a Dozen Sources Not from the Bible or Christians that Points to a Man (Prophet) that is Identical or Points Exactly to Jesus of Nazareth

Think about it! Before 4 BC there were the pagan gods of Greece and Rome, Zoroastrianism in Persia, and the worship of jesusYHWH in Jerusalem. By AD 100 it is a fact of history that the worship of a man named the Christ was something that not even proud Roman emperors could ignore. Today millions follow him including more than a hundred million in China. Why do you think Jesus Christ has made such an incredible impact on the lives of millions of men and women?
