At The Veritas Forum at the University of Chicago, Cambridge scholar Peter Williams lists some of the extra-biblical historical evidence for Christianity. He discusses Pliny the Younger’s letter to Trajan about the early Christians as evidence of the beliefs of the early church which worshipped Jesus Christ as God. This – combined with Judaism’s fundamental monotheism – is early evidence that Jesus Christ was quickly given stature as divine and not simply gradually exalted over time.
