Jesus Is Real, Says Josephus

Josephus was a famous 1st century Jewish historian whose writings are still referred to by scholars today as being valuable sources of information.  Here is what Josephus, a non-Christian, had to say about the man named Jesus:
Now there was about this time Jesus, a wise man, if it be lawful to call him a man; for he was a doer of wonderful works, a teacher of such men as receive the truth with pleasure. He drew over to him both many of the Jews and many of the Gentiles. He was [the] Christ. And when Pilate, at the suggestion of the principal men amongst us, had condemned him to the cross, those that loved him at the first did not forsake him; for he appeared to them alive again the third day; as the divine prophets had foretold these and ten thousand other wonderful things concerning him. And the tribe of Christians, so named from him, are not extinct at this day.

Won't you put your faith in Jesus to save you from your sins today?
