#1 Jesus Christ actually lived.
A man named Jesus Christ lived during the first century. Historians have documented this fact both Roman and Jewish historians. It has been said that there is more evidence for Jesus then George Washington. The early Bible writers lived in the same time as Jesus. They recorded events of his life. At the time of their writings many people were still alive who actually saw Jesus Christ. All of the writings are in sync with the time and life of individuals who lived in Palestine during that era.
# 2 Not only is there proof that Jesus lived but died at the hands of the Roman government. This fact can’t be denied that Jesus Christ was crucified on a cross and was put to death by evil men.
“From Tacitus we learn that Jesus was executed while Pontius Pilate was the Roman prefect in charge of Judaea (AD26-36) and Tiberius was emperor (AD14-37) – reports that fit with the timeframe of the gospels. Pliny contributes the information that, where he was governor in northern Turkey, Christians worshipped Christ as a god. Neither of them liked Christians – Pliny writes of their “pig-headed obstinacy” and Tacitus calls their religion a destructive superstition.” https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/apr/14/what-is-the-historical-evidence-that-jesus-christ-lived-and-died
#3 Non-Biblical evidence of Jesus Christ.
Many are quick to foolishly discount the Bible account of the man Jesus Christ.
For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus… 1 Timothy 2:5
Tacitus’s last major work, titled Annals, written c. 116–117 C.E., includes a biography of Nero. In 64 C.E., during a fire in Rome, Nero was suspected of secretly ordering the burning of a part of town where he wanted to carry out a building project, so he tried to shift the blame to Christians. This was the occasion for Tacitus to mention Christians, whom he despised. He wrote—the following excerpt is translated from Latin by Robert Van Voorst:
[N]either human effort nor the emperor’s generosity nor the placating of the gods ended the scandalous belief that the fire had been ordered [by Nero]. Therefore, to put down the rumor, Nero substituted as culprits and punished in the most unusual ways those hated for their shameful acts … whom the crowd called “Chrestians.” The founder of this name, Christ [Christus in Latin], had been executed in the reign of Tiberius by the procurator Pontius Pilate … Suppressed for a time, the deadly superstition erupted again not only in Judea, the origin of this evil, but also in the city [Rome], where all things horrible and shameful from everywhere come together and become popular.5
