    Perhaps a question that’s not Biblically-related but one that is historical. I read commentaries/study about the supposed work of Flavius Josephus’s The Testimonium Flavianum. There were questions raised as to the authenticity of this work and that his narration weighs more on John the Baptist than of Jesus. Also, Jesus’s and Judas’s characters were also questioned due to inconsistencies in narration.

    My question is this: Though we have the supposed eyewitness accounts written by such people as Josephus, how do we know its authenticity? This question also applies to the works of the ANF or ECF.

    Thanks
