I recommend you view this video: Why I Think Jesus Didn't Exist: A Historian Explains the Evidence That Changed His Mind by Dr. Richard Carrier where he presents information that changed his mind whether Christ existed:

He has a doctorate in ancient history from Columbia University where his thesis was on the history of science in ancient antiquity.

Josephus was born 4 years after the character Jesus supposedly died. Tacitus, 23 years after. So I'm still waiting for a contemporary source.
