“A Historian Looks at Jesus”


A very illuminating read:

What is clear beyond doubt is that whereas in the nineteenth century the tendency of history was to cast doubt of the veracity of Judeo-Christian records and to undermine popular faith in God and His Son as presented in the Bible, in the twentieth century it has moved in quite the opposite direction, and there is no sign of the process coming to an end. It is not now the men of faith, it is the skeptics, who have reason to fear the course of discovery.

    thats kind of funny. N.T Wright explained it almost as the story of the prodigal son returning home. New testament historical reasearch went away in the enlightment and is now returning to orthodoxy
