Most of Josephus’ writings are in connection with Christ and Christianity. He acknowledges several Christianity founders such as the twelve apostles, St. Peter and St. Paul. In his work, he acknowledges Christian practices including atonement, incarnation and virgin birth of Christ. As a result, most scholars see him as an Ebionite Christian. He believes Jesus to have been a supernatural being and as the son of God. In his work entitled Testimonium Flavianum, he recalls that,
“Now, there was about this time, Jesus, a wise man, if it be lawful to call him a man, for he was a doer of wonderful works. — and when Pilate, had condemned him to the cross, those that loved him at the first did not forsake him, for he appeared to them alive again the third day” (Wells, 1997, p. 379).
