What can we learn about the Bible from the study of archaeology? Are there any discoveries in particular that shed light on the life and ministry of Jesus of Nazareth? What are we to think of skeptics who refuse to believe in the historicity of biblical stories unless they are confirmed by archaeological evidence? Joining us to discuss these issues is Craig Evans, author of Fabricating Jesus, Ancient Texts for New Testament Studies, and, more recently, Jesus and His World: The Archaeological Evidence.

  • I love Bauckham’s work in “Jesus and the Eyewitnesses”. It resonated with my own detective observations and I leaned on his scholarship for my own book. One comment about archaeological corroboration: The nature of evidential corroboration is such that we ought not expect every detail of an eyewitness account to be verified by a piece of reasonable corroborative evidence. If a witness tells me that he saw the robber put his hand on the counter, lean over, point a gun at the teller and demand money, I can corroborate the witness’ statement by locating the robber’s fingerprints on the counter. Notice, however, that the fingerprints will tell me nothing about whether or not the robber had a gun or what the robber said to the teller. The corroborative evidence of the fingerprints only confirms a portion of the eyewitness statement and we have to infer the rest. In a similar way, archaeological evidence will only verify a portion of the Biblical account yet we can still consider it corroborative. This is the nature of corroborative evidence in my experience as a cold-case detective.
