This morning, as we study the death of Jesus from the Gospel of Matthew it is important you know there are several ancient documents that record the death of Jesus - Mara bar Serapion (ca. A.D. 73), Josephus, Antiquities 18.3.3 §64, Agapius, Book of the Title (summarizing Josephus), Tacitus, Annals 15.44 (ca. a.d. 110–20), Babylonian Talmud, tractate Sanhedrin 43a. It is important this crucial event that stands at the center of our faith can be shown to have historical evidence in addition to the historical accounts we have in the Gospels.
