Product Description

The Gospels provide the most thorough account of Jesus Christ. But what if the stories about his life and work are legends? Scholars have occasionally cast doubt on the reliability of the Gospels. New approaches to biblical studies have only increased the challenges. Can we continue to trust the New Testament? In this revised edition, Craig Blomberg reveals the faulty analysis and presuppositions that have led to mistaken conclusions about the Gospels, providing scholarly criteria for judging these books and biblical answers to our hard questions. This new edition has been thoroughly updated in light of new developments with numerous additions to the footnotes and two added appendixes. Readers will find that over the past twenty years, the case for the historical trustworthiness of the Gospels has grown vastly stronger.

Craig L. Blomberg (Ph.D., Aberdeen) is Distinguished Professor of New Testament at Denver Seminary in Denver, Colorado. His books include Interpreting the Parables, Neither Poverty nor Riches, Jesus and the Gospels: An Introduction and Survey, The Historical Reliability of John's Gospel, commentaries on Matthew and 1 Corinthians, Making Sense of the New Testament: 3 Crucial Questions and Preaching the Parables.

Publisher's Description

For over twenty years, Craig Blomberg's The Historical Reliability of the Gospels has provided a useful antidote to many of the toxic effects of skeptical criticism of the Gospels. Offering a calm, balanced overview of the history of Gospel criticism, especially that of the late twentieth century, Blomberg introduces readers to the methods employed by New Testament scholars and shows both the values and limits of those methods. He then delves more deeply into the question of miracles, Synoptic discrepancies and the differences between the Synoptics and John. After an assessment of noncanonical Jesus tradition, he addresses issues of historical method directly. This new edition has been thoroughly updated in light of new developments with numerous additions to the footnotes and two added appendixes. Readers will find that over the past twenty years, the case for the historical trustworthiness of the Gospels has grown vastly stronger.

    this book sets out to defend the gospels as historically reliable, and is basically an apologetics work on the subject. it is a scholarly treatment to be sure, as Craig Blomberg is no lightweight, be that as it may, this work is polemical and seems to simply totally miss the point in that the nature of so much of the literature spawned by 2nd temple judaistic and greco/roman literature, are a mix of historical kernels with many embellishements and what today would be called myth. ( see Eric Gruen's Heritage and Hellenism and also Michael Grant's Greek and Roman Historians. ) at any rate, for a decently intelligent stab at defending the gosples as mostly straightforwardly historically reliable, this is worth the effort to read and study.
