No not really. Some of the places and non major characters (Like King Herod) are, but there is no evidence of any of the twelve, noah, moses, joseph,
mary, etc. The Josephus text is up for debate. I think its a later addition. The text that describes Christ doesn't flow with the rest of the
text. Its not quoted by anyone except Eusibius in the 3/4 century. Some think he added it. Josephus also wrote a lot about other people during
that time, but only wrote a paragraph about the greatest person to walk the earth? Most of the other evidence is well after the time time of Jesus's
death (32 AD).
Some other items (some slightly off topic)
No evidence for a place called Nazareth
Stavros or stauros which is translated as cross in today's bibles is actually translated as "pole, or stake". The cross was a later adoption.
The trinity wasn't developed until the Council of Constantinople in 360 AD. It was discussed to some degree earlier, but not in its final form until
The rapture wasn't even discussed until the 1800's
The earliest gospel is Mark and it paved the way for the other gospels. The most important verses, Mark 16:9-20 were a later addition. Mark is dated
to around 70 AD but we don't have a copy until around 200 AD (Fragment p45).
Both Easter and Christmas fall on Pagan holidays. Even the name Easter is take from the pagan name Eostre. The bunny symbolizes fertility. The
tree, easter eggs, mistletoe, gift giving, etc. are all of pagan origin.
The flood story is taken from the Epic of Gilgamesh
The Instruction of Amenomope and Proverbs 22-23 are similar
Then theres the debate of Christianity taking practices/rituals/items from Mithraism, Zoroastrianism, Hinduism, and a whole host of other religions.
Its murky water here but the info is out there.
