b.1783 - d.1853, Founder of Harvard Law School
A legend in the legal history of America and the English speaking world, as author of the national constitution of Liberia, primary founder of Harvard Law School, and Juridical academic famous for his 'Treaties on the Law of Evidence' still mandatory in the American legal curriculum and Bar examinations until the present day, Simon set the seminal standards, rules, and protocols for the evaluation and establishment of evidence in the American judicial system.
As a Jew who decidedly did not believe in the messiahship of Jesus, Simon Greenleaf embarked on applying the legal rules of evidence he defined as perhaps the nation's most pre-eminent legal scholar to disproving the Gospels and the claims of their Jewish authors concerning Jesus as is detailed in his classic book ”The Testimony of The Evangelists”.
To his shock however, evidentiary legal preponderance of the facts led him to conclude beyond reason-able doubt that the Gospels were true in their historicity including validation of the claims of his fellow Jew Jesus of Nazareth.
If you want evidence, read his book and...
"I WILL SET UP A PROPHET FOR THEM FROM AMONG THEIR BROTHERS LIKE YOU, AND I WILL PUT MY WORDS INTO HIS MOUTH, AND HE WILL SPEAK TO THEM ALL THAT I COMMAND HIM".
