One point being repeated often is the lack of secular evidence to back up claims in the new testement. For example, the claim that the dead came alive after Jesus' death would have certainly warranted notation in what ever recording happened in the day. I assume Pilate had some kind of historian available to jot down news to send to Rome now and again.

However, here is my puzzle. Is there ANY record of ANYTHING Roman during that era (perhaps 100BC - 100AD) that exists today.

I understand that Judea was not a favorite spot to be in charge of if you were a Roman politician. This would suggest Pilate was not a favorite in his circles. Still, I would assume a power house like the Roman Empire would have the ability and desire to record events of the day from all its extensive outposts. I have read some things about Rome's involvement in the British Isles, but this was during the decay of the Roman Empire about 400-500 AD or so; Some Authorian legends mention involvement with the Romain Empire in England.

So please help me folks. What references do you know about the Roman Empire as told by the Romans?
