Most people believe that Jesus was a real person who lived in first century Palestine. But what about the stories told of him in the four Gospels? Do they present an authentic account of Jesus’ life and teaching, or should we think of them as late and unreliable texts that have changed over time? On this program Shane Rosenthal discusses these questions with Cambridge scholar Peter Williams. In his book Can We Trust the Gospels?, Dr. Williams makes a case for the authenticity and historical reliability of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
