Excellent lecture by Peter Williams on the trustworthiness of the Gospels and their eyewitness accounts to Jesus. Dr. Williams explores many details in the Gospels that I had previously read over not thinking much about: agriculture, architecture, botany, culture, economics, geography, language, law, personal names, politics,
religion, social stratification, topography, weather.
The reliability of the eyewitness accounts in the Gospels is important not only because they affirm that the Bible is the Word of God. The eyewitness accounts in the Gospels are also important because Christianity is rooted in history. The Christian faith is rooted in the real world and is true for everyone even if unbelievers reject its significance.
