Hank Hanegraaff, president of the Christian Research Institute and the host of the Bible Answer Man broadcast talks about resurrection as the ultimate game-changer. The fatal suffering of Christ is one of the best-established facts of antiquity. It is attested by Flavius Josephus, an eyewitness to many of the details and descriptions found in the New Testament, as well as by such historical luminaries as Cornelius Tacitus, widely deemed to be the greatest first-century historian of the ancient Roman Empire. In Annals, Tacitus forthrightly chronicled the death of the “Christus,” who “suffered the extreme penalty during the reign of Tiberius at the hands of one of our procurators, Pontius Pilatus.” Tacitus not only provided corroborating testimony to the biblical account of Christ’s fatal torment at the hands of Pilate during the reign of Tiberius Caesar but drew attention to the whole of the Christian movement, which had spread from Judea to Rome. Even in the modern age of scientific enlightenment, there is virtual consensus among New Testament scholars—both conservative and liberal— that Christ died on the cross, that he was buried in the tomb of Joseph of Arimathea, and that his death drove his disciples to despair.
