NEW ONLINE COURSE by Dr. Craig Blomberg

The Historical Reliability of the Gospels Online Course

Our next ReasonU Course: The Historical Reliability of the Gospels by Craig Blomberg. Craig Blomberg is known around the world for his careful, reasoned, and balanced scholarship. He has written and taught on the Historical Reliability of the Gospels for decades. He brings education and scholarship to this area and shows how we truly can trust the Gospels.  

― Michael Patton Th.M. ―

The reliability of the Gospels is under attack. Skeptics seek to undermine the story of Jesus Christ by saying we cannot really trust the Gospel. "They were not written by eye-witnesses," "They contradict each other," "They have historical errors." Those who have not studied this subject may be caught off-guard and begin to lose the footing of their faith.

But we have an answer!
