Can We Trust the Gospels? Part 2 - Did the Gospel writers know what they were writing about?

Date recorded: 26 Sep 2020 | Speaker: Peter J. Williams | Event: Master Class
Topic: Bible

Description

The Gospels―Matthew, Mark, Luke, John―are four accounts of Jesus’s life and teachings while on earth.  But should we accept them as historically accurate?  What evidence is there that the recorded events actually happened?  This seminar will cover the nature and content of the Gospels and discuss how to respond to critics who doubt their historical reliability. This presentation is in five parts. 

Part 2 - Did the Gospel writers know what they were writing about? This session will examine the levels of knowledge of the Gospel writers and see that they were familiar with the things they wrote about. The simplest explanation for this is that they were close in time and space to the events they recorded.
