Jesus of Nazareth is possibly mentioned in two passages of the work The Antiquities of the Jews by the Jewish historian Josephus, written in the late first century CE. One passage, known as the Testimonium Flavianum, discusses the career of Jesus. The authenticity of the Testimonium Flavianum has been disputed since the 17th century, and by the mid 18th century the consensus view was that it had at a minimum been altered by Christian scribes, and possibly was outright forgery.
What is your opinion? Real or fabrication? Why or why not?

Yes I have. When you look at things, anyone who wants to disprove anything can. You have to look at the whole picture. For instance, The Christian religion by all rights should have been disbanded before the first century. Then again in Augustine's time, and other times. Along with a few others. All the different faiths have a truth to them, The main truth is the one God. Even the Romans Greeks Indians, Pagans considered the unnamedone as being the core. Above all. They just recognised the minor deities, Because all Gods as you look to history are jealous Gods.

OK it's comments like that, that drive people away. No wonder people don't believe. Some need proof or find it in their in their own way. I did. Yes I've read many things about sooo many different thoughts and philosophies. Blind faith can be a hindrance instead of a help.

I forgot about this, Some of Josephus writings are also thought to be written by his father or taken from things that his father wrote about it or told him.
