For those pondering the historical reliability of the New Testament, a great place to start is this lecture by Dr Simon Gathercole, a senior academic at Cambridge University. in a lecture entitled, ‘Did we Get Jesus Right? Jesus in the Canonical & the Apocryphal Gospels’, Gathercole tackles the so-called ‘gospels’ which promoted by the media in recent years and how they contrast with the four gospels of the New Testament. The lecture is both informative and shows the far greater historical value of the New Testament gospels. It is dated 8 September 2012 and can be accessed here.
