Reference to Jesus Christ: A quote from Antiquities, Book 18, Chapter 3, Section 1


“At this time there appeared Jesus, a wise man, if indeed one ought to refer to him as a man; for he was a doer of startling deeds, a teacher of people who received the truth with pleasure. And he gained a following both among many Jews and among many of Greek origin. [He was the Messiah-Christ]. And when Pilate, because of an accusation made by the leading men among us, condemned him to the cross, those who had loved him previously did not cease to do so. [For on the third day he appeared to them again alive, just as the divine prophets had spoken about these and countless other marvelous things about him]. And up until this very day the tribe of Christians, named after him, has not died out.”
