Richard Bauckham on the Reliability of John’s Witness

Series: The Gospel of John Year-Long Series – Published: Sunday, 13 Jan 2019

Hosted by Richard Bauckham Shane Rosenthal

Scholars frequently claim that John is the latest and most idealized of all the Gospels. Its picture of Jesus, they say, represents the beliefs of late first century Christians, rather than actual historical events. But is this view consistent with the evidence? What if it could be demonstrated that the author of this text was actually a careful and reliable eyewitness? On this program, we’ll discuss these issues and more with Richard Bauckham, author of Jesus and the Eyewitnesses and The Testimony of the Beloved Disciple.
