Dr. Peter Williams on the Historical Accuracy of the 4 Gospels

Dr. Peter Williams of Tyndale House

This video is of Dr. Peter Williams of Tyndale House. He does a fantastic job in this 54 minute lecture, arguing for the historical reliability of the 4 canonical New Testament Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John). He relies on old and more recent arguments (from scholars like Richard Bauckham and others). Williams is a cutting edge Protestant New Testament scholar who has done top notch scholarly work on the historical and linguistic background of the New Testament, and as well as work in Syriac (a dialect of Aramaic).

Thanks to Michael Bird for posting this on his blog.

I would recommend reading Richard Bauckham’s book, Jesus and the Eyewitnesses, on this topic.
