Ms. Murdock claims that Christians were never martyred by the masses.

One of the main passages which support the position that many Christians died at the hands of the Romans is found in the writings of the Roman historian, Tacitus (A. D. 55-120).(64)

However, Murdock states that this passage is a forgery. Why?

She argues that Tacitus "was born two decades after 'the Savior's' alleged death; thus, if there were any passages in his work referring to Christ or his immediate followers, they would be second hand and long after the alleged events."(65)

As discussed below with Josephus, this is a naive view of how historical studies are conducted.

If you have to be an eyewitness in order to give an accurate account of history, then no one could write a text today providing a history of the American Civil War and, indeed, much of what we know historically would have to be discarded.
