There is proof of Jesus aside from the Bible, which btw, is a historically accurate book.  Josephus Flavius, who was a Romana-Jewish historian, verified Christ in his works.  Also, Cacitus, who described Christ, was a historian.  Many others.

Aerial photograph of the Sea of Gallilee. In Jesus' time, fishing was the main business of many in the surrounding areas. Josephus was governor of Galilee for a time, and said that at any one time 230 boats were at work.

"Stauros" Greek word for a pole/stake on which one is impaled (the root verb "stau'ros" is used in the Bible more than 40 times.) This verb means to fence with pales, to form a stockade, or palisade and this was the verb used by the mob calling for Jesus to be impaled. He did not die on a "cross." In several texts, Bible writers use another word for the instrument of Jesus’ death. It is the Greek word xyʹlon. This word simply means “timber “or “a stick, club, or tree.”
