Talking about the Things That Matter Most on Mar. 29
4:00 – Jesus and the Eyewitnesses: The Gospels as Eyewitness Testimony
In Jesus and the Eyewitnesses, Richard Bauckham argues that the four Gospels are closely based on eyewitness testimony of those who knew Jesus. He challenges the prevailing assumption that the accounts of Jesus circulated as "anonymous community traditions," asserting instead that they were transmitted in the name of the original eyewitnesses. To drive home this controversial point, Bauckham draws on internal literary evidence, study of personal names in the first century, and recent developments in the understanding of oral traditions. We look at the Gospels as eyewitness testimony.
