Historical Documentation of Christ's Existance on Earth

There is more historical documentation for Jesus than for the founder of any other major religion.
The scriptures of Buddha, who lived in the 6th century B.C. were not put into writing until after the Christian era.  Muhammad,   lived from 570 until 632 AD, but his biography was not written until a hundred years after his death.
The first accounts of Christ were written within a few years of His death and resurrection.  Non believing writers such as Josephus, the Talmud, Tacitus and Pliny the Younger all give independent evidence of His birth, life, death and spread of the Christian belief.

Coincidence or Fact

Is the Jesus of the New Testament the Messiah promised in the Old Testament?
There are more than a dozen predictions of Jesus birth and death in the Old Testament which was written more than seven hundred years before the birth of Jesus.  The predictions are not so general that they could be interpreted in any manner (you will meet a tall, dark stranger) but contain specifics as to place, manner and people involved.
Could the fulfillment of these predictions be merely a coincident?  No!  The probability of just 8 of those prophecies being filled by chance is one in one hundred billion.

"But the things which God announced beforehand by the mouth of all the prophets, that His Christ should suffer, He has thus fulfilled" Acts 3: 18
