All of Our Stories About Jesus:  

The New Testament Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John provide us with virtually all our knowledge of what Jesus said and did.

  • His birth in Bethlehem to the Virgin Mary 
  • His baptism by John the Baptist 
  • His miracles of healing and casting out demons 
  • His Sermon on the Mount 
  • All His parables 
  • His triumphal entry and Last Supper 
  • His trial and crucifixion 
  • His resurrection on the third day 

The historian wants to know: Can we corroborate these accounts? Are they historically reliable? Are some of them based on myth and legend?

Topics Included:  

  • How do historians understand the New Testament Gospels differently from most lay readers, Christian or non-Christian? 
  • Are the Gospels theologically insightful narratives? Historically accurate accounts? Both? Neither? 
  • Were they written by eyewitnesses, or at least based on eyewitness testimony? 
  • How do we explain their vast similarities and differences? 
  • How can we know when they were written? 
  • When and why did scholars begin to question their historical value? 
  • Were the stories they tell changed, or even invented, as they circulated by word of mouth over the years? 
  • Wouldn’t surviving eyewitnesses correct inaccuracies in the Gospels? 
  • Don’t oral cultures strive to preserve their traditions accurately?
  • Did the Gospel authors care what really happened? 
  • Would Christian authors intentionally make up stories? 
  • Can there be true stories that never happened?
