Topic: Can We Trust the New Testament?
“Ultimately what really counts in writing history is ‘truth’” says distinguished Professor of Christian Origins at Houston Baptist Seminary, Dr. Craig Evans. Since the earliest days of church history the New Testament has been criticized, demonized, doubted, and maligned. According to Evans, the earliest manuscripts show Jesus as our present-day Bibles do; as the Son of God and Messiah. “My purpose is to introduce readers to diverse and complex literature, to look at the most important areas of debate and to look at the scholarly use or misuse of materials,” explains Evans.
