Jesus and the Eyewitnesses by Richard Bauckham
  • Jesus and the Eyewitnesses: The Gospels as Eyewitness Testimony by Richard Bauckham

    ePUB | 1 MB |

    A groundbreaking work in New Testament studies expanded and updated

    Winner of the 2007 Christianity Today Book Award in Biblical Studies, this momentous volume argues that the four Gospels are closely based on the eyewitness testimony of those who personally knew Jesus.

    Noted New Testament scholar Richard Bauckham challenges the prevailing assumption that the Jesus accounts circulated as “anonymous community traditions,” asserting instead that they were transmitted in the names of the original eyewitnesses.

    In this expanded second edition Bauckham is adding a new preface, three substantial new chapters that respond to critics and clarify key points of his argument, and a comprehensive new bibliography.
