Tacitus refers to christianity as a religion centered around a man who suffered extreme penalty under Pontius Pilate - while he does not name Jesus, he does name Pilate. Josephus also makes reference to Jesus, as do some other contemporary sources.
>>41258 Mixed. Jesus may or may not have existed but the end product was Christianity. Christianity has literally NOTHING to do with the old testiment, in fact you could make an argument strongly that the Christianity was a response/revolt to Judaism (see dead sea scrolls). Historically there's a few characters who are mentioned which sound like Jesus but nothing concrete.
>>41258 There's no reason to doubt he existed. While we don't have a lot of written evidence, and none of the non-christian one is contemporary, ancient writers never doubted the historicity of Jesus and always mention him as a man who actually existed. We make a big deal of it, but it's not like other historical characters accepted to exist aren't worst attested.
