This time-honored work includes an examination of the legal procedures in the trial of Jesus. How would the Gospels be regarded if they were submitted as evidence in a court of law? This fascinating question forms the basis for Simon Greenleaf's classic study of the rules of legal evidence as applied to the New Testament account of the life and teaching of Jesus. As Dane Professor of Law at Harvard in the mid-19th century, Simon Greenleaf produced the greatest single authority on evidence in history. Applying the same rules of evidence administered in courts of justice, Greenleaf demonstrated the validity of the gospels as trustworthy and authoritative historical accounts.
