New Testament, Archeology Agree, Pontius Pilate Was A Real Person

A commonly heard objection to the New Testament account of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is the alleged absence of archeological evidence for various people, including the Lord Himself.

This piece from Raphael Lataster, author of “There Was No Jesus, There Is No God,” is typical of the genre. Besides Jesus, cases have also been made by skeptics that Pontius Pilate was fictional, or at least there was no archeological evidence of his existence.

In this video, cross-examined.org’s Dr. Frank Turek addresses the issue of whether there was actually a Roman prefect named Pontius Pilate, as described by the Bible.
