It's not wise to quote Josephus in this regard. Almost all scholars consider the passage you quote to be a fraudulent insertion into the original text, (Google =Josephus jesus= and hunt around.) which could raise the question why someone thought fraud was nevessary.
I don’t doubt you are correct about the fraudulent Josephus texts....however, that does not make the Resurrectcion untrue.
I learn something new everyday. Thanks!
...you beat me to the punch with the redacted Josephus material...that said, in no way does it detract from the truth...as was mentioned, people are not eager to die for nothing but metaphors...
Yes, certainly that fraud would have been necessary, because none of the other numerous accounts or external historical evidence would have been enough to convince anyone. /s
