I tend to question authenticity when there is no clear provenence. The documentation may be based on earlier records. There is no proof.
Because Caesar Augustus thought he, himself, was the son of a god.
The better question may be. Why did Caesar Augustus never mention this prominent figure in his own writings? Perhaps he was oblivious to the happenings in his own empire. Maybe he was just too busy dealing with other matters rather than addressing the murder of a proclaimed son of a god.
And we know how reliable word of mouth is
If he was such an important figure, performed miracles, spoke profoundly on life, was the son of God, why was there such a long period of time between his death and the actual record of his history? If he was such an important figure why did his disciples not record everything he said and did while he was alive?
It's a little disturbing to be held hostage by an ancient system.
TextAs believer in the man, Christ, I have often wondered why his faithful waited 100 years or more to record an historical record of his life.
