Modern scholars, popular media, and self-styled intellectuals often regard the Gospels as unreliable and their picture of Jesus as unbelievable. Such skepticism is typically rooted in some pretty serious claims about the historical integrity of the text of the New Testament. They span from the charge that the Gospels are merely the product of Christian mythology (and not the testimony of eyewitnesses) to allegations that the biblical texts were corrupted by ancient and medieval scribes and, thus, are unreliable. This presentation will survey and respond to these (and other) arguments and, from the evidence, make a case for the Bible's historical reliability and the truthfulness of the Christian faith.
