For those who don't know Testimonium Flavianum
or TF is a brief passage in First century Jewish author Josephus's monumental book "Antiquities of the Jews", for some Christians its allegedly a independent testimony of Jesus's Miracles. While Scholarly opinion on this passage is Varied and only very few consider it to be wholly Authentic, A scholar of Antiquity Louis Feldman who surveyed the relevant literature from 1937 to 1980 in Josephus and Modern Scholarship. Feldman noted that 4 scholars regarded the Testimonium Flavianum as entirely genuine, 6 as mostly genuine, 20 accept it with some interpolations, 9 with several interpolations, and 13 regard it as being totally an interpolation.
So I created a little Poll
to know what the Forum members here think of it, please participate in it and share your views.
And for me personally the Passage's extremely short length
, Dense Christian character, Its Narrative similarity
with a passage of gLuke, its vocabulary similarity
to Eusebius's other writings, Church father Origen's failure to mention any part of it (while he Extensively used the works of Josephus)
and Overall flimsy language ('Principled man among us', 'ten thousand other wonderful things')
which is in stark contrast with Josephus's writing, So taking everything into account its a total interpolation for me.
Also Keep in mind Poll is only for authenticity of TF not for historicity of Jesus.
