Josephus and Jesus: a Christian forgery?

O.K. So, what did Josephus, the Jewish historian really say? Is the mention of Jesus in his writings a total Christian fabrication? For a brief, balanced and scholarly reply, listen to John Dickson of the Centre for Public Christianity interviewing Professor Chris Forbes of Sydney.

His fields of research and teaching focus on New Testament history, Alexander the Great and Hellenistic history, Graeco-Roman History of Ideas and the intersection of early Christianity and Graeco-Roman culture.
