Are there independent historical accounts to confirm the people and events mentioned in the New Testament? In fact, there are, including accounts written about the high priests Annas and Caiaphas, before whom Jesus appears just before he is crucified. Understanding these can equip us to help those who are seeking to learn about the Christian faith. This lesson also addresses the claim (by some) of "secret teachings" of Jesus, which include old, gnostic teachings repackaged today in beliefs such as the "laws of attraction."
