Unbelievable? 29 Aug 2009 - Richard Bauckham on the Gospels - pt 1

"Jesus and the Eyewitnesses" has been heralded as a paradigm shift in the way the authorship of the Gospels should be seen. 

Richard Bauckham is the author of the book, which won the 2009 Michael Ramsey prize.  He argues that the Gospels are based on eyewitness accounts and should be regarded as fundamentally trustworthy.

New Testament historian James Crossley discusses the implications of Bauckham's work and whether the Gospel of John was written by the disciple John himself, as Bauckham claims.

They continue the debate next week...
